Wow, that didn’t take lengthy. Nancy Pelosi issued a name for an impartial investigation into Trump marketing campaign collusion with Russians simply moments after Particular Counsel Robert Mueller unsealed indictments for marketing campaign operatives Paul Manafort and Rick Gates, who’ve turned themselves in to federal authorities. Wait… I believed Mueller’s was an impartial investigation? I assume she desires a second opinion and I’ve a good suggestion why. Say it with me… Podesta. You see, it’s not simply Manafort and Gates which are being snagged right here.
Tony Podesta stepped down from the Podesta Group yesterday. Podesta is handing over full operational and monetary management to longtime agency CEO Kimberley Fritts, based on a number of sources with data of the assembly. Fritts and a senior group of the Podesta workforce will probably be launching a brand new agency within the subsequent one or two days. Sources mentioned the transition has been within the works for the previous a number of months. So, they knew what was coming. Repeat after me… ACORN. And Pelosi is aware of all this, so she’s making an attempt to place the emphasis again on Trump in any respect prices.
Pelosi ranted on concerning the collusion between Trump and Russia, however not a peep on latest revelations on Hillary Clinton’s ties to a discredited file about Trump and Russia. Not even a touch on the Uranium One scandal both. Right here’s what she did say:
Even with an accelerating Particular Counsel investigation contained in the Justice Division, and investigations contained in the Republican Congress, we nonetheless want an outdoor, absolutely impartial investigation to show Russia’s meddling in our election and the involvement of Trump officers. Defending the integrity of our democracy calls for that Congress stay up for counter Russian aggression and stop future meddling with our elections.
In different phrases, she desires somebody who may be purchased and managed.

Each Manafort, who was Trump’s marketing campaign supervisor, and his enterprise affiliate Gates have been requested to give up in response to costs from Mueller’s investigation into accusations that the marketing campaign colluded with Russia to defeat Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. Manafort was launched on a $10 million bail and Gates was launched on $5 million.
Enjoyable truth, simply to hit each side right here. Manafort had a lobbying enterprise with Roger Stone many years in the past. Trump has recognized him for many years as properly. Which makes this even worse. Manafort was being paid by the Russians and by the Podesta Group simply earlier than he joined Trump’s marketing campaign. Perhaps that ought to be investigated as properly.
Manafort will most likely flip on Podesta, not Trump in all this. However it will likely be fascinating to see the way it performs out. There are numerous extra dominoes to fall and extra arrests are on the best way. That is only the start of a DC lobbyist crackdown on each side of the political aisle. Try Tucker Carlson under on the newest popping out of DC.
