Obama WH counsel faces possible prosecution in Mueller-initiated probe
All those Trump supporters who cried foul, claiming that Mueller was working on behalf of the Democrats have just been handed their asses. As I said from the beginning, Mueller is going to follow this wherever it leads. Anyone who is involved should be properly investigated and charged if applicable. Whether they are Blues or Reds doesn't matter.Former Obama White House Counsel and Clinton-linked attorney Greg Craig may soon be charged by the Justice Department for engaging in illegal unregistered overseas lobbying, in a case initially probed by Special Counsel Robert Mueller -- a development that would make him the first Democrat to face prosecution amid the long-running Russia investigation.
New York prosecutors are also looking into potential similar charges regarding another Clinton-connected Washington insider, Tony Podesta. In September, Manafort admitted to directing two firms -- Mercury Public Affairs and the Podesta Group -- to lobby in the U.S. on behalf of a Ukrainian political party and Ukraine's government, then led by Yanukovych, Manafort's longtime political patron.
