Finally, there may be some justice headed toward the Clinton empire.
According to reports, Tony Podesta, brother of Hillary Clinton’s former campaign manager, John Podesta, is being investigated by Robert Mueller in his probe of Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. election.
Trump Demanded Investigation
The Podestas may have President Donald Trump to thank for their new legal problems.
When word of the probe first came out, Trump sent out a tweet stating: “Was the brother of John Podesta paid big money to get the sanctions on Russia lifted? Did Hillary know?”
That tweet was later followed up by another question from Trump:
“Why isn’t Mueller looking at all of the criminal activity and real Russian collusion on the Democratic side; Podesta dossier?”
While we have no way of knowing for sure if that had anything to do with the probe into the Podestas, this new information no doubt has Trump smiling from ear to ear.
More Obama People
The probe is not stopping at Podesta, either.
Greg Craig, a White House attorney while Barack Obama was in office, is also reportedly included in the investigation.
The question at hand is if these individuals worked on behalf of a foreign government without properly registering with the government, which is a violation of the Foreign Agents Registration Act.
Thus far, Podesta’s people are saying it wasn’t their fault — a typical excuse from liberals.
According to the Podesta Group, they were given misinformation by their client.
This investigation was a direct result of the investigation into Paul Manafort for Russian collusion.
While Mueller found no wrongdoing there, the investigation did uncover possible tax fraud.
Manafort is currently on trial in Virginia for those charges.
He will also soon face a trial in Washington for making false statements and conspiracy to defraud the United States.
