SNEAK: Podesta Group Retroactively Files DOJ Paperwork for ‘Pro-Putin Lobbying’
Washington Examiner reports:
The Podesta Group belatedly filed severalnew 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 disclosuresrevealed 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.
While CNN continues to push the Russian interference narrative, WikiLeaks’ Julian Assange may be ready to push a narrative of his own, and it will be devastating to the very fake news network. In a major development, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange told Rep. Dana Rohrabacher that he is ready to provide information proving Russia did not hack the Democratic National Committee.
As Podesta explains it, with a Greek mother and Italian father, speaking your mind was a core value of his childhood. “We were a blue-collar Chicago family,” he said. “The kitchen table was not a model of decorum. It was all right to yell.”
His heritage, he once told an interviewer, also explains his hot temper and accounts for the occasional appearance of Skippy, his sarcastic and ill-humored alter ego.

Roger Stone recently testified before the House Intelligence Committee. During the testimony, Stone denied any involvement with Russia during the 2016 presidential election and accused the House panel investigating of making “irresponsible” and “probably false statements.”
Hours after Stone’s testimony, Hillary Clinton’s former disgraced campaign chair, John Podesta, took to Twitter in what appeared to be an attack on Roger Stone.
Here is the tweet:
@RogerJStoneJr: lying on TV carries no consequence, lying to House investigators is a crime https://t.co/g9IendorAq
— John Podesta (@johnpodesta) September 27, 2017
And Stone immediately made Podesta regret his tweet. Check this out:

Democratic power lobbyist Tony Podesta, founder of the Podesta Group, is stepping down from the firm that bears his name after coming under investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller.
According to NBC News sources, the Podesta Group is one of the two companies directly linked to Paul Manafort’s indictment in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s ‘Russian interference’ investigation.
This is the same Podesta Group that lobbied for Uranium One until at least 2012.
Hillary Clinton and the Obama regime approved the Uranium One deal and turned over one-fifth of US uranium deposits to Russia in exchange for millions to the Clinton Foundation.

Tony Podesta sent a Cease and Desist letter to “Tucker Carlson Tonight” hours after resigning from his role at the Podesta Group – a D.C. lobbying firm accused by a former executive of pedaling Russian influence along with fellow lobbyist and short-lived Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort.
Manfort was indicted over the weekend on 12 counts ranging from tax fraud, money laundering and giving false statements between 2006 and 2015, and is currently under house arrest after turning himself over to the FBI Monday morning – fueling speculation as to whether Tony Podesta’s sudden departure from his firm is connected.
Of note, Monday's indictment lists "Company A" and "Company B" as firms involved in the investigation - which NBC reports are the Podesta Group and DC public relations firm Mercury Public Affairs.
2:04 "The chairman of one major presidential campaign [Paul Manafort] colluded with the brother [Tony Podesta] of the chairman of the other major presidential campaign [John Podesta] to enrich themselves by secretly advancing the interests of a foreign adversary."
Related: Special Counsel Mueller was himself involved in Uranium One deal as head of FBI.
Less than two weeks after John Podesta's brother, Tony, quit as head of the prominent Democratic lobbying group, the Podesta Group just days after it was revealed that Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller was investigating Podesta for potentially violating the Foreign Agents Registration Act for his work involving Ukraine clients, Politico reported overnight that Podesta Group longtime CEO, Kimberley Fritts, is leaving the firm to start her own lobbying shop, according to three Podesta Group staffers.
There are a total of 7 sealed indictments, one was Manafort, second is Podesta…
