They Don’t Even Try to Hide the Bias: Mueller Gives Tony Podesta Immunity for Manafort Testimony

Why isn’t Podesta being charged?

From The Washington Examiner

Tony Podesta, founder of the now-shuttered Podesta Group and brother to former Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta, has been offered immunity by special counsel Robert Mueller to testify against former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort, according to a report.

Fox News’ Tucker Carlson announced on his show Thursday evening that two separate sources confirmed the offer.

“In other words, for a near identical crime, Bill and Hillary’s friend could escape and emerge completely unscathed while Paul Manafort may rot in jail. Only one of them made the mistake of chairing Donald Trump’s presidential campaign,” Carlson said.

The special counsel’s office did not immediately return a request for comment.

Mueller is offering immunity to five potential witnesses in the upcoming trial of Manafort. Mueller’s team is asking for “use immunity,” which is a limited type of immunity, according to court documents filed Tuesday. The five people have not been charged or identified publicly with the case, prosecutors for Mueller’s team said.

Podesta resigned from his lobbying company in October in response to an investigation of the firm by Mueller. The firm was closed by the end of 2017.

At the time of Podesta’s resignation, a Podesta Group spokesman said the firm was “cooperating fully with the special counsel’s office and has taken every possible step to provide documentation that confirms timely compliance. In all of our client engagements, the Podesta Group conducts due diligence and consults with appropriate legal experts to ensure compliance with disclosure regulations at all times — and we did so in this case.”

Manafort and Podesta’s firms worked together in a public relations campaign for the European Centre for a Modern Ukraine nonprofit, which was believed to be backed by the pro-Russian and oligarch-funded Ukrainian political group Party of Regions. Sources who spoke with NBC News in October said the Podesta Group became of significant interest because it may have violated the Foreign Agents Registration Act. FARA states Americans who lobby for foreign governments, leaders, or political parties must disclose their activities with the Justice Department.

Manafort, currently in jail awaiting trial, faces charges related to money laundering, failing to register as a foreign agent, and tampering with government witnesses, as part of Mueller’s Russia inquiry. Manafort has pleaded not guilty.

 

The selective immunity allocated by former Obama regime operatives has a pattern.

James Comey gave immunity to Clinton aides and IT experts  and destroyed their laptops, which contained evidence related to the investigation.  His actions were saturated with political bias.

And now Mueller has given immunity to Tony Podesta, who was paid a $170,000 bribe by a Russian bank to convince Obama to end sanctions.

Mueller’s entire case against Manafort has been a tactic to get evidence to incriminate President Trump.  Manafort was charged with tax fraud and failing to register as a foreign agent, which happened prior to the Trump campaign , and  has nothing to do with the Trump campaign. Matter of fact, he resigned August 19, 2016, after it was reported that he’d received $12.7 million in undisclosed cash payments from a pro-Russian party between 2007 and 2012.

Mueller  is corrupt and so is his ‘special counsel’.
