Tony Podesta Resigns as Mueller Closes in on Clinton Circle
31 October, 2017, 00:51 | Author: Phil Peters
Citing multiple sources with knowledge of a firm-wide meeting Monday morning, Politico reported that Podesta - the brother of Hillary Clinton's campaign chairman John Podesta - would hand over control of the firm to CEO Kimberley Fritts.
The indictment said the Centre for a Modern Ukraine was "the nominal client" for Company A and B, when in fact the firms were paid through offshore accounts associated with entities owned or controlled by Manafort and Gates.
And just this afternoon it was reported by Politico that Tony Podesta will be stepping down from the firm he founded. The move comes after it was revealed last week Special Counsel Robert Mueller has been investigating him as part of the larger probe into the 2016 presidential election. Further, the source added that Podesta said he "needs to fight this as an individual, but doesn't want the firm to fight it". Manafort, the former campaign manager for President Donald Trump, was indicted on 12 counts Monday.
"At the direction of Manafort and Gates, Company A and Company B engaged in extensive lobbying", according to the indictment. Manafort and Gates selected the lobbying firms in February 2012 and the center signed contracts with the firms without ever meeting either one, according to the indictment.

Neither Podesta nor The Podesta Group immediately responded to CNBC's requests for comment. That same nonprofit, the European Centre for a Modern Ukraine, worked with Manafort.
What is clear is that Tony Podesta's organization played a large role in the lobbying activities at the basis of Manafort's indictment and that his firm is apparently guilty of at least one of the crimes Manafort was arrested for today.
