Trick Or Treat, Tony Podesta


from Rogue Money:

“Just hours after Manafort and Gates handed themselves over to the feds, Politico reports, the founder of the Podesta Group, is stepping down from the lobbying shop that bears his name after coming under investigation by Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller.”

I love those Monday mornings when the name “Podesta” suddenly begins trending on Twitter, but this time it’s for all the right reasons. There must be something in the water. First, Harvey Weinstein gets forced out of his own company. Now, Tony Podesta resigns from his own lobbying firm, “for the greater good” of the company. What a team player you are, Tony!

Per Politico [linked here]:

Podesta announced his decision during a firm-wide meeting Monday morning and is alerting clients of his impending departure.

Podesta is handing over full operational and financial control to longtime firm CEO Kimberley Fritts, according to multiple sources with knowledge of the meeting. Fritts and a senior group of the Podesta team will be launching a new firm in the next one or two days. Sources said the transition has been in the works for the past several months.

Fritts also addressed the gathering, telling staff that she is “thrilled at this opportunity” and that, “This is not about me, this is about y’all.” Several other senior staff spoke about their excitement about the future of the firm. The meeting ended with a resounding ovation for Podesta.

Yes, this is all about “you all.” We have no doubt that Fritts is 1000{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528} correct. And it’s also about everybody else who’s been swimming in the swamp.

Podesta’s decision to leave the firm came on the same day that former Donald Trump campaign aides Paul Manafort and Rick Gates were indicted on multiple charges, including money laundering, operating as federal agents of the Ukrainian government, failing to disclose overseas bank accounts and making false statements to federal authorities. Trump campaign foreign policy advisor George Papadopoulos pleaded guilty earlier this month for lying to the FBI about his contacts with Russian officials, according to court records.

Hey, Tony, was the indictment meant to be a birthday gift for Hillary?


You’ve got to wonder if Tony came crawling to the Lizard Queen on his hands and knees during her 70th birthday party this past weekend, begging for a parachute. Surely he knew his neck was already on the hatchet block. Did Hillary choose to leave him hanging in the breeze? Or is she now powerless as she waits for the knock of the Jacobins at her own door?
