The level of propaganda going on this weekend and today is insane, now more than ever we need people to take a look at things like this and put the REAL context/data/facts on this subject.
Look at this news article, NOT ONCE is Podesta mentioned in this. Manafort work for the Podesta group during the supposed "tax evasion" and or "taking in donations without reporting them" he commited. This has absolutely nothing to do with Trump, as Manafort did this things back in 2012 or 2013 while working for John Podesta(Clinton Campaign manager/DNC insider).
John Podesta and Tony Podesta had a involvement in Ukrainian politics. Supposedly Mueller expanded the investigation to focus on Podesta/his lobbying firm that had connections with Clinton. But we all know what that really is! Damage control and using "fact finding mission" to find all the evidence and destroy it. There is a reason Mueller has 15+ Democrat/DNC lawyers on his team, because they don't leak daming info about DNC/Democrats. They will destroy any evidence they find. Think about it. Mueller is covering up all this stuff while trying to make it seem like it is connected to Trump, that is Meullers smoke screen in destroying all this stuff, we need to focus on that!!!
"Manafort organized a public relations campaign for a group called European Centre for a Modern Ukraine (ECMU), which lobbied the U.S. to support Ukraine’s EU push. Podesta’s company was one of many firms that worked on the campaign."
"The sources said Mueller’s investigation into Podesta, the brother of Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta, began as a fact-finding mission about Manafort’s role in the campaign but quickly morphed into a criminal inquiry into whether the firm violated the Foreign Agents Registration Act, known as FARA."
Today's story is being used to drag out the "investigation"into MUH RUSSIA that the Clintons are the guilty party of. Obama/Clintons are the ones that got the Uranium One deal going, while the Podestas were involved in it also!!!
"Manafort is accused of having laundered more than $18m (£14m) through offshore bank accounts, using it to buy property, goods and services in transactions concealed from the US authorities."
"He is said to have "used his hidden overseas wealth to enjoy a lavish lifestyle" in America.
Altogether, at least $75m in payments from Ukraine flowed through the accounts, the indictment says."
"His associate RIck Gates is accused of having transferred more than $3m from the offshore accounts to other accounts he controlled. He has been ordered to surrender to FBI"
TL:DR Mueller is using this all as a smoke screen to protect Clintons/Podesta/Comey/Himself/Obama and other DNC top people.
