Report: The Podesta Group, which is under scrutiny in Mueller’s investigation, to shut down


Recommended Posts


The Podesta group, a lobbying firm co-founded by Tony Podesta and John Podesta — Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign chairman — will shutter its doors by the end of the year, according to a new report.

What’s going on?

After special counsel Robert Mueller’s indictment against former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort and staffer Rick Gates was made public, the Podesta Group was swept into the center of the investigation, along with another organization, for failing to register their foreign lobbying work with the U.S. government. The companies worked with Manafort to conduct lobbying in Ukraine on behalf of Russian organizations.


According to CNN, Kimberley Fritts, the Podesta Group’s chief executive, told employees during a staff meeting on Thursday the company wouldn’t survive through the end of the year, said they likely wouldn’t be paid beyond Nov. 15 and instructed them to clean out their desks.

Mueller’s investigation has interviewed several members of the Podesta Group. Tony resigned from the company the day the indictment was made public. He has vowed to fight for himself and his group.
