Special Counsel Robert Mueller has spent the better part of two years conducting an investigation into Russian involvement during the 2016 election.
His investigation quickly turned into a witch hunt against President Trump and his former campaign team as Mueller abused his authority and went after the team.
But now it has been revealed that Mueller has referred three Washington super-lobbyists for criminal prosecution, and their identities will shock you.
Despite his actions against President Trump’s former campaign team and the president himself, Mueller was found to have his hands in Tony Podesta’s case — even offering the first referral — as part of an investigation into those who may have acted as unregistered foreign agents.
Tony Podesta was a Democratic super-lobbyist with ties to both Obama and Hillary Clinton.
Mueller also referred former Obama-era White House General Counsel Greg Craig.
Both were actively involved with Trump’s former campaign manager, Paul Manafort, who was found guilty of tax evasion and of colluding as an unregistered foreign agent.
All three worked on a campaign to support former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych.
Manafort recently went to trial in Virginia as a result.
The Podesta Group worked with Yanukovych’s group two years prior to working on the Trump campaign.
As of now, it is unclear whether or not Podesta or Craig have been charged with crimes for any wrongdoing.
But according to a new report, Mueller referred information about Podesta to the U.S. Attorney’s Office in southern New York shortly before a raid on the home of Trump’s former lawyer, Michael Cohen.
Vin Weber was also referred by Mueller as an active participant in this case.
Members of Weber’s organization are under scrutiny as they acted in support of the pro-Ukrainian efforts.
Weber worked with public affairs firm Mercury, which filed updated paperwork about the lobbying efforts of the organization in recent weeks.
While a lawyer for Podesta declined to comment, a member of the Mercury group did.
Michael McKeon, a partner at Mercury, said, “We welcome any inquiry, as we always have, since we acted appropriately at every step of the process, including hiring the best lawyer in Washington we could and following his advice.”
Ultimately, during his witch hunt against President Trump and his former campaign team, Mueller uncovered many issues within the Democratic Party — starting with Podesta and Craig.
The three lobbyists are alleged to have been working as unregistered agents of a foreign government.
While similar charges against Paul Manafort and a 29-year-old Russian who was associated with the NRA elicited nonstop coverage from the so-called “mainstream” media, two Democrats being referred for prosecution on charges of working as unregistered agents of a Russian connected government provoked a collective yawn from those same “brave” truth tellers in the press.
The Russia probe may soon be over, but the trouble is just beginning for these three Washington Swamp inhabitants.
