In Robert Mueller’s topsy-turvy world, prosecuting white collar crimes that have nothing at all to do with the entire purpose of his special counsel appointment is apparently peachy keen. What’s also apparently okay is giving immunity to a Hillary crony who might have been connected to the actual election collusion by the FBI and the DNC. Tony Podesta, brother of Hillary campaign chairman John Podesta, was offered a get out of jail free card by Mueller in exchange for testimony against Paul Manafort, former Trump campaign adviser, for alleged crimes entirely unrelated to the presidential election. Facepalm.
Here’s more from PJ Media…
Special Counsel Robert Mueller has offered Clinton crony and fundraiser Tony Podesta immunity to testify against former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, Fox News host Tucker Carlson reported Thursday night based on two sources.
Podesta, whose brother is Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta, is the founder of the now-defunct Podesta Group, a Democratic lobbying group that worked with Manafort’s consulting firm in 2012 on a sham campaign called the European Centre for a Modern Ukraine, which supported then-Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych.
Manafort’s lobbying work for Ukraine reportedly ended two years before he joined the Trump campaign.
Neither Manafort nor Podesta properly registered with the Foreign Agent Registration Act (FARA) in 2012, and both retroactively registered their firms with the Department of Justice as foreign agents of Ukraine in 2017.
