How do you say 'whoops' in Russian?
Podesta Group retroactively files more DOJ disclosures for pro-Putin work

by Emily Jashinsky
Aug 24, 2017


The Podesta Group belatedly filed several new disclosures with the Justice Department on Aug. 17 related to work the firm completed between 2012 and 2014 on behalf of a pro-Russia Ukrainian think tank.

Back in April, the powerful Washington lobbying firm run by Clinton ally Tony Podesta filed a document admitting its work for the pro-Russia European Centre for a Modern Ukraine may have principally benefited a foreign government. New disclosures revealed dozens of previously unreported interactions the firm made with influential government offices, including Hillary Clinton's State Department and the office of former Vice President Joe Biden, while lobbying on behalf of the center. Embattled ex-Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort failed to disclose his extensive lobbying efforts on behalf of the center at the time as well.

Anyone lobbying or doing public relations on behalf of foreign governments is required to register as a foreign agent in compliance with the Foreign Agents Registration Act. The Aug. 17 filings include short-form registration statements for six Podesta Group employees and an amendment to the firm's registration statement that includes a list of political contributions made by relevant employees throughout 2013.

A review of those donations shows both parties received cash from Podesta Group lobbyists. . .

Okay. Does that mean Trump Jr. and co.'s meeting never happened?
NO, you dolt.

What it means, is that if Trump is guilty, Clinton is too.

DUH.

why Clinton? she was not working for the Podesta group and nor was John Podesta... her campaign manager, who had left the group when he worked for Obama and then the Clinton campaign???

apples and oranges....

They are not going after Manafort for simply failing to report he was a foreign agent or Flynn for that matter...

They are looking in to a quid pro quo between Manafort/Trump campaign and the Russian government, AND whether Manafort was money laundering for the Russians.

I guess John Podesta's 75,000 shares, worth 35 million dollars in
2014 is one of those..."nothing to see here" deals...eh?

Uh, because the Clinton Foundation took in almost $200M thanks to Podesta's ties to Putin maybe? BTW, Podesta never left the Russian bank...he just put his shares in his children's names.....something you despise Trump for doing with his legitimate businesses.

That's far fetched....Clinton has nothing to do with the podesta group not claiming foreign agent status, nor did she or the foundation collect money from the podesta group's Russian Ukrainian connection. Nor was the podesta group a part of her campaign....truly a nothing burger on Clinton, but the Podesta group did break e law on not claiming foreign agent status!

I love what I know and both Manafort and the Podestas worked for the Party of Regions.
