Tony Podesta steps down from lobbying group amid Mueller investigation

01 November 2017

Trump went on a Twitter rampage Tuesday in response to the indictment of three of his former campaign staffers, deriding the coverage as "Fake News", and claiming the "biggest story" of Monday was the stepping down of Tony Podesta, a Democratic lobbyist being eyed by investigators, from his firm. What he know (s) about Crooked Dems is earth shattering.

"He and his brother [John Podesta] could Drain The Swamp, which would be yet another campaign promise fulfilled", Trump tweeted.

What does Trump say about Podesta?

Tony Podesta is the brother of John Podesta, the former campaign chairman for Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign. The meeting ended with a resounding ovation for Podesta. So far in 2017, the Podesta Group has raked in nearly $16 million in lobbying fees, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.

The lobbyist's exit comes as former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and his business associate, Rick Gates, were indicted in a federal court Monday on 12 counts, including conspiracy to launder money, conspiracy against the United States, and making false and misleading statements.

Politico reports that Manafort organized a public relations campaign for a nonprofit organization called the European Centre for a Modern Ukraine (ECFMU) which benefited from a political party in Ukraine that Manafort once advised. Manafort worked for the Party of Regions, a pro-Russia Ukrainian political party whose president, Viktor Yanukovych, ruled Ukraine between 2010 and 2014.

"The Podesta Group has fully cooperated with the special counsel's office and taken every possible step to provide documentation that confirms compliance with the law", a spokesperson for the Podesta Group told ABC News. It subsequently amended its required filings. The Podesta Group's work for ECFMU, a nonprofit, was in support of Ukraine's admission to the European Union, a position supported by foreign policy experts at the time.

The Podesta Group and Mercury said they relied on assurances provided by the nonprofit group that it was neither funded nor controlled by any foreign government or party.

Rather than kowtowing to critics amid fallout from Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation investigation, D.C. lobbyist and powerbroker Tony Podesta plans to fight them.

Podesta, 74, is the founder and chairman of the Podesta Group, which has been described by The New York Times as "one of Washington's biggest players".
