What he know about Crooked Dems is. He and his brother could Drain The Swamp, which would be yet another campaign promise fulfilled.

What, exactly, is President Donald Trump talking about?

His decision to step down is a significant effect of Mueller's probe, but he's drawn outsize interest on the right because he's the brother of Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta.

"If you want something done in Washington, DC, you go to Tony Podesta", his bio page on the Podesta Group website says. The meeting ended with a resounding ovation for Podesta.

"It demands we retract and delete all our prior reporting on the Podesta Group and warns if we don't do this, quote, 'Mr".

"[Tony] was very magnanimous", and said, "This is an fantastic group of people", a source present at the meeting stated, according to Politico.

On Monday, Podesta - Tony, that is - announced he was leaving the firm to concentrate full-time on his ties to special counsel Bob Mueller's investigation into Russia's attempt to influence the 2016 election.

He is now being investigated by Mueller for failing to properly disclose these efforts to regulators.

It was a really brutal process", Raisa said. "My lupus, there's about a 3 to 5 percent chance it'll ever come back ". Raisa immediately volunteered to get tested and found out she was a match, which Gomez believes is no coincidence.

The Podesta Group has ranked among the five most prosperous lobby firms in Washington for most of the past decade, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.

The Podesta Group has repeatedly insisted that it was unaware that Manafort was using the European Centre for a Modern Ukraine to improve the image of then-Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovych.

Mercury said in a statement that it "takes its obligations to follow all laws, rules and regulations very seriously" and "has and will continue to fully cooperate with the Office of the Special Counsel in its investigation". It subsequently amended its required filings. Podesta Group said at the time it believed its client was a European think tank untethered to a political party.

The Podesta Group and Mercury said they relied on assurances provided by the nonprofit group that it was neither funded nor controlled by any foreign government or party. Last week, three sources told NBC News that Tony Podesta and the Podesta Group had fallen under the purview of Mueller's investigation, due to their connections to Manafort's finances. The Podesta Group was one of several firms that were paid to do work on a PR campaign organized by Manafort on behalf of a nonprofit called the European Centre for a Modern Ukraine.

John Podesta is fighting back.

"Not bad enough that I was the victim of a massive cyber crime directed by the Russian President", Podesta tweeted.

"The chairman of one major presidential campaign colluded with the brother of the chairman of the other major presidential campaign to enrich themselves by secretly advancing the interests of a foreign adversary", Carlson said.
