The liberals may be right to be worried about all of those “Russia connections.” However, instead of focusing their time and energy on President Donald Trump and his campaign team, liberal conspiracy theorists should be vetting their own team for these Russia ties, specifically Clinton campaign CEO John Podesta. And special prosecutor Mueller is on their trail.
The Democrats keep pointing to Paul Manafort’s lobbying work for pro-Russian leaders in Ukraine as evidence of team/Trump Russia collision. They also point to the fact that at first Manfort didn’t register as a foreign agent of Ukraine. Well. if Manafort is guilty of collusion so is John Podesta, because Podesta’s firm worked on the same project as the Manafort team and they too forgot to register as a foreign agent.
Two of the firms, Podesta Group and Mercury LLC, worked in Washington with Manafort partner Rick Gates, according to lobbying disclosure records.
