Podesta Group "Will Not Exist At The End Of The Year"

While all eyes (from the left and the establishment right) remain on Trump  (daring to shake Putin's hand this weekend), the mainstream media appears to be missing the news that the lobbying firm founded by longtime Democratic operative Tony Podesta is reportedly on the verge of shuttering after being swept up in special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia probe.

Just three weeks after we reported that special counsel Mueller was targeting lobbying firm Podesta Group. and just two weeks after Tony Podesta resigned from his position at the firm he founded, The Hill reports that Kimberley Fritts, the Podesta Group's chief executive, told employees on Thursday that the firm would not exist at the end of the year and that they would likely not be paid through the end of November, sources told CNN.

Fritts announced her resignation from the top Washington lobbying group after Podesta left the company amid ties to indictments filed in the Russia investigation. Fritts is beginning work on launching a new firm. Her last day at the company Friday created new uncertainty for the Podesta Group after the departure of Podesta on Oct. 30.

Multiple employees who spoke to The Hill said the mood at the firm was mostly optimistic, though they said many of the firm's dozens of employees could be in limbo as Fritts sets up the new firm and brings Podesta Group talent and clients with her.

As a reminder, Mueller is now investigating whether the Podesta Group properly identified to U.S. authorities its foreign work on behalf of a Ukrainian advocacy group in Europe, CNN reported.

An NBC report found that the Podesta Group was one of several firms working on Paul Manafort's public relations campaign for European Centre for a Modern Ukraine, which the Podesta Group claims it thought was a nonpartisan think tank, something which this site reported first last August.

And here is one reason why we suspect more than a few on the left are now concerned...

It goes without saying, that Podesta's brother, John, is arguably one of the top figure in Democratic politics, serving most recently as chief of staff in the Bill Clinton White House and also as the chairman of Hillary Clinton's 2016 presidential campaign.

What happens next to Tony (and perhaps his brother John) is to be determined, but one thing is clear: both sides of the swamp should probably control themselves in any premature celebrations as this appears to be far from over.

Seems the narrative they're trying to build right now is the Saudis and Yeminis attacked us on 9/11 and in Vegas.Sweet how Israel is somehow getting a free pass on 9/11 now to blame it all on the Saudis, they're trying to say that Yeminis killed those people in Vegas, again Israel is not even mentioned.Those 4chan sites spreading this are CIA/Mossad/Deep State run, I'm convinced of it, thats why they use all the racist language, just more divide and conquer and pushing Israel friendly narrative.Its obvious bullshit.......I guess next they'll tell us a Saudi killed JFK, MLK, RFK and all the other good people they killed......I'm 90% sure the Seth Rich story is just a tail-chaser as well.

I"m beginning to wonder if the Podestas will get the option to shut down and walk away while the Russia collusion story via Mueller keeps spinning as it attempts to ensnare Trump. If kind of makes sense, if you're a liberal you get to shut down and quietly walk away, while if you're Trump you get impeached. This seems like a much more likely scenario than the Podestas being indicted. It certainly fits the "limit the damage" Clinton policies while blame everyone else on the planet of collusion and demand complete retribution and disgrace.

No one could script all of these dominoes falling in real time.  Princes, Podesta, and sooner rather than later house hold name representatives along with maybe even Pedo-gate ringleaders a real pre-Christmas present to the masses.

More 7D zuchinni. Meanwhile Jared bugged out, first to tip off al-Saudwho to arrest, and now he's hiding out in Israel, safe from extradictionbecause he fled BEFORE the indictments, so broke no laws. The wildtheory that the entire Obama administration is about to see prison isjust laughable! To think there are 100,000,000 messianic rabbinicalevangeliicals who believe this stuff, and who have guns, is shocking.We're gonna need a bigger Las Vegas!

European police investigating the Madeleine McCann disappearance keep ending up looking at the Podesta brothers and a house they have in the area where she went missing. Google "madeliene mccann podesta brothers". It reinforces a lot of things that are talked about in America.

Sure does. The police composite images of the suspected kidnappers are dead ringers for the Podesta brothers. The brothers were known to be holidaying in the same town on the Portuguese coast at the time of the abduction. They were staying at the home of a friend, who was away in England at the time -- who was later convicted on child porn charges. The British police announced that they had suspects and expected to announce a conviction shortly. Then it was announced that the suspects had to be freed due to "diplomatic sensitivities." And then there's the spirit cooking and the creepy artwork.

Amazing how a bankrupt country like Ukraine makes it to the top of that list of Clinton Foundation donors. And it's after Soros, Nuland and McCain had their way with that country and made sure every ounce of gold in their banks was transferred out.Ukraine should have been on the receiving end of charity and not on the donor list at all.

How did two spaghetti-benders get to be so powerful relative to our jew-infested government?  I did not think that the Christ-killers would tolerate any competition in D.C. (our political system)  just like they do not in Hollywood (entertainment) or Las Vegas (casino gambling).

Pickle the pedos and traitors in large glass jars then strap the jars onto rr flatcars and parade slowly around the nation to be seen by the great People who lost money and children to these scum of hell.

If Mueller overlooks Tony's other deal, the real Russian one, he will have to be reminded.

Tony Podesta Lobbied For Russia’s ‘Uranium One’ And Did Not File As A Foreign Agenthttp://dailycaller.com/2017/11/05/tony-podesta-lobbied-for-russias-uran…

This has the appearance of a controlled burn. I suspect Mueller deliberately leaked non critical information as cover for Tony Podesta. The moment the uranium one witness with the gag order looked like the gag would be lifted, Mueller floats the information to media, media reports, Tony quits, and the rest of the rats jump ship taking with them everything they needed to metastasis into a dozen more cells.

What does any of this have to do with Trump and Russia collusion. For over 16 months they have wiretapped and genuinely harassed every person around Trump that even met a Russian..Hijacking the news with bull crap and insinuating all sorts of bull dung ...Have a separate investigation of these lobbyists crooks and leave the President out of it...

They raided Manaforts home because they thought he was hiding evidence and yet they turn a blind eye while the Podesta bros destroy evidence and vanish into the sunset.

I am glad that the FBI and all the others (CIA, DOJ etc) have finally abandoned their evil ways of unannounced raids...just like when you plan to quit your job and you give your employer 2 weeks notice, the FBI gives these asswipes plenty of notice that they will be cumming.

Podesta Group "Will Not Exist At The End Of The Year" ... Well, of course not!

The Podesta Group will Merge with the Weinstein Group and the resultant new Mega-Group will be known as 'The Grope Group'

There's obviously much more here. These guys are scattering like roaches when the lights go on. Mr & Mrs Clinton are probably getting sore from shitting bricks. The next 6 months will be breathtaking. It'll be beautiful. .

Podesta (Tony) and the CEO that just resigned were just served in lawsuits by George Webb, YouTube Web Journo who's broken most of the crimes.They're shutting the whole thing down to avoid discovery... the reason for the lawsuits.Rumors Mueller may have given Podesta immunity (criminal).

my udnerstanding of "immunity" s it has to be specific to a subject - not blanket for ...anything given the Clitnons and the number of potential bribes - individuals / corporations / countries / partnerships  / direct or indirect they cant have Blanket immunity and both brothers are involved - The deal in Boston went bad as well for John- there is a story there as well
