Under Fire In Russia Probe, Podesta Group Tells Employees It's Shutting Down

The Podesta Group, a Democratic lobbying firm led by Tony Podesta — the brother of Hillary Clinton campaign chairman, John Podesta — will likely shut its doors this week, after ending up at the center of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russia probe.

In a staff meeting Thursday, Podesta Group chief executive Kimberley Fritts, reportedly told employees to clean out their desks and pack their personal belongings. She added, according to CNN, that the company wasn't likely to survive the year, and that employees could not expect to be paid past November 15.

Fritts also announced that she was leaving Podesta Group effective Friday, and that she was taking some of the firm's biggest name clients with her. She told the firm's staff that most, if not all, will likely join her at her new lobbying firm. Other Podesta Group bigwigs, including Tony Podesta himself, are exploring other options.

Tony Podesta resigned his position at his namesake firm on October 30, just a day after learning that he was named in Mueller's investigation. Several years ago, Podesta worked with former Trump 2016 campaign manager, Paul Manafort, lobbying Congress and others in D.C. on behalf of a pro-Putin Ukrainian leader. Podesta reportedly failed to properly disclose the foreign entanglement, earning Mueller's suspicion.

Mueller's team subpoenaed communications and records from the Podesta Group back in August, and Podesta and others have reportedly been in Mueller's crosshairs since the beginning of the summer. The investigation that Democrats had hoped would pull down the president and some of his top advisors, ended up ensnaring one of their own top operatives.

Guilty by association is no more relevant than in this case. Would you hire her firm with the background she must have?

99% of her potential clients will only see the old success rate. They hardly care about how it was achieved ... you don't think any of these animals have anything we'd recognize as morals, do ya?

No reports of a Mueller search warrant on Podesta Group. I wonder how many hard drives they destroyed?
I suppose Vladimir will give Trump all the proof he needs.

If they are above board, they wouldn't be shutting down would they?
The Same can be asked of the Clinton Foundation too.

Seeing as she lost, her and Bill should have all the time in the World to use their Foundation to help the underprivileged.
...but as soon as she loses like the dog she is, they start winding it down while trying to say it wasn't used as a front for selling influence lol lol lol <---- there ain't enough lol's in the World for her and her "Foundation".

Hopefully Tony and his disgusting brother will find gainful employment...stamping license plates soon.
