Not good at all.
On Monday special counsel Robert Mueller indicted President Donald Trump’s former campaign manager Paul Manafort on a litany of charges, including money laundering, conspiracy, you name it.
To be clear, none of these charges concern the president, let alone the ludicrous belief among leftists he colluded with the Russians to affect the outcome of the 2016 presidential election.
Writing for NOQ Report, however, Steve Berman wonders if perhaps these charges could lead to the indictment of Tony Podesta, the older brother of failed Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s former campaign chairman, John Podesta:
Manafort may provide ammunition for Mueller in his expanded investigation of Democratic super-lobbyist Tony Podesta, who has ties to various congressional Democrats and Bill Clinton.
The very charges against Manafort go to the heart of the Podesta link. In his work for the Ukraine, Manafort set up a group called European Centre for a Modern Ukraine (ECMU), which used Podesta’s lobbying group. These bear directly on the indictments, and could spell trouble for Democrats. Of course, the DNC, neck-deep in every part of the Russia connection, from the “dossier” to “fake news” and lying about it, denies any knowledge of anything.
Now guess who Clinton reportedly hobnobbed with just this past weekend …
“Clinton hung out with Sidney Blumenthal and political consultant Tony Podesta this weekend at the former Democratic presidential [nominee’s] birthday bash,” reported The Daily Caller. “Podesta’s appearance at the party is awkward, considering he has become a key figure in special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into Russian influence in the election.”
I strongly disagree with that latter assessment. Nothing about Clinton hobnobbing with crooks astonishes me, given all I know about her sleazy past.
Now, for a little context, NBC News reported last week that “Tony Podesta and the Podesta Group are now the subjects of a federal investigation being led by Special Counsel Robert Mueller” over the public relations campaign he organized for Manafort’s European Centre for a Modern Ukraine.
Will something come out of this investigation? Not necessarily. Will something come out of the reports last week that Clinton, the Democrat National Committee and former President Barack Obama all helped fund the fake Trump dossier? Probably not …
Unless, of course, Mueller is interested in real justice versus the one-sided brand of justice sought by the left.
