John Podesta: 'I'm the Victim' of Donald Trump's 'Big Lie'

What he know (s) about Crooked Dems is earth shattering.

"He and his brother could Drain The Swamp, which would be yet another campaign promise fulfilled", he wrote.

What, exactly, is President Donald Trump talking about?

Unlike Trump's former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, and his protégé Rick Gates, Podesta has yet to be charged with any crimes.

The lobbyist, who is the brother John Podesta, chairman of the 2016 Hillary Clinton presidential campaign, also alerted clients of his impending departure.

Both Manafort's firm and the Podesta Group filed FARA registrations for the ECMU work only after the payments were reported by the media previous year.

The Podesta brothers founded the firm in 1988, and John left in 1993.

According to the indictment, the lobbying firms were paid $2 million from offshore accounts controlled by Manafort.

Tropical Storm Philippe may form by weekend
According to the NHC, environmental conditions are "conducive for the development of a tropical depression or tropical storm". Currently, winds are 40 mph with high gusts, and the system is forecast to strengthen within the next 24 to 36 hours.

NBC News reported last week that Tony Podesta and the Podesta group had become subject of Mueller's probe into ties between the Trump presidential campaign and Russian Federation.

How did a prominent Democratic lobbyist get wrapped up in an investigation of Russia's efforts to help Trump and hurt Clinton in the 2016 race? Manafort's ties to prior political work in Ukraine raised questions shortly before he resigned from the Trump campaign in August 2016.

The indictment, unsealed Monday, refers to "Company A" and "Company B" as the firms Manafort and Gates solicited in 2012 to lobby on behalf of the Ukranian government.

Both Tony Podesta and Manafort have been accused of failing to comply with the Foreign Agents Registration Act, a regulation requiring Americans working for foreign leaders, political groups or governments to disclose their activities to the U.S. Department of Justice.

The Podesta Group has repeatedly insisted that it was unaware that Manafort was using the European Centre for a Modern Ukraine to improve the image of then-Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovych.

"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. Podesta Group said at the time it believed its client was a European think tank untethered to a political party. "The ECFMU provided formal certification that it was neither funded by nor directed by a government or political party".

Mercury LLC, another Washington, DC-based lobbying firm that allegedly works with the Podesta Group, said Monday that it is cooperating with Mueller's team.

President Trump tweeted earlier today that Democrats are "in a dither" over the Podesta controversy.
