Robert Mueller Now Investigating Tony Podesta

Robert Mueller Now Investigating Tony PodestaSpecial counsel Robert Mueller’s federal probe has now expanded to include Tony Podesta and the Podesta Group, NBC News reported Monday. The special counsel began looking into the Democratic power-player and his lobbying group after probing the finances of former Trump campaign chief Paul Manafort. “Manafort had organized a public-relations campaign for a nonprofit called the European Centre for a Modern Ukraine (ECMU),” NBC explained. “Podesta’s company was one of many firms that worked on the campaign, which promoted Ukraine’s image in the West.” The Podesta inquiry began as a “fact-finding mission” about Manafort, “but has now morphed into a criminal inquiry into whether the firm violated the Foreign Agents Registration Act, known as FARA.” Podesta is the brother of Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, John Podesta.
