Keep An Eye on Tony Podesta


Keep an eye on this development.  24/7 News Source is reporting that Democratic super lobbyist Tony Podesta is stepping down from his lobbying firm after learning he's a target of the ongoing Russia probe. 

An employee of the group told NBC News that Podesta announced his decision at a company-wide meeting this morning. Podesta and the Podesta Group worked with former Trump campaign chair Paul Manafort and his deputy Rick Gates between 2012 and 2014 in a lobbying campaign that promoted a pro-Russian political party in Ukraine. The details of that campaign were disclosed in a grand jury indictment unsealed today. 

You probably know that Tony Podesta is the brother of John Podesta, who ran Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign. John Podesta is not involved in the Mueller probe.  There is more to come on this and we may hear more sooner than later.
