Tony Podesta has reportedly threatened Foxs Tucker Carlson Tonight hours after resigning from his role at the Podesta Group a D.C. lobbying firm accused by a former executive of pedaling Russian influence along with fellow lobbyist and short-lived Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort.
Last week Carlson reported that Tony Podesta is a central figure in Special Counsel Robert Muellers investigation. Directly after his report, Carlsons show was contacted by a former long-time executive of the Podesta Group with direct personal knowledge of Tony Podestas questionable activities, which Carlson divulged the next evening.
While the nature of Podestas threat has not been made public, Carlson later tweeted Were confident the Mueller probe will reveal a lot more about Tony Podestas lobbying practices in the near future....
...According to the former Podesta Group executive, Manafort and Tony Podesta were running a Russian influence-peddling racket up and down Washington D.C., bringing a parade of Russian oligarchs to congress for meetings. Podesta was also Basically part of the Clinton Foundation, meeting regularly to discuss the now-infamous Uranium One deal.

Manafort brought a parade of Russian oligarchs to congress for meetings with members and their staffs, however, the Russias central effort was the Obama Administration.
n late 2013 or early 2014, Tony Podesta and a representative for the Clinton Foundation met to discuss how to help Uranium One the Russian owned company that controls 20 percent of American Uranium Production and whose board members gave over $100 million to the Clinton Foundation.
Tony Podesta was basically part of the Clinton Foundation.
Believing she would win the 2016 election, Russia considered the Podesta Groups connection to Hillary highly valuable.
The Democrat Thug Party.
Tucker was so concerned he read the whole letter on air complete with the threat that the letter was copyrighted and he couldn’t present it.
I’m sure the lawyers he consulted beforehand laughed their butts off.
Hoisted on their own petar. The Mueller investigation, staffed by hard-boiled Democrats, exposes—the Podesta Group! This is beautiful.
I have my doubts...
Anyone find it interesting how Manafort was gone from the Trump campaign 48 hours after Trump received his first classified intel briefing?
I did some digging and the Manafort-Ukraine news all came out within the same week.
Considering that the FBI had been monitoring / investigating Manafort since (or in) 2013, I suspect it would present some sort of giant liability if that fact wasn’t included in the intel briefing.
Also remember that Hillary received the same briefing Aug 17, 2016 - right around the same time all the Russia stuff started heating up. This is the first article I could find about Manafort and “secret ledgers,” published by the NYT three days before Trump’s intel briefing.
One thought is that they knew Trump would see the briefing and fire Manafort, so they began trotting these breadcrumbs out around the same time, then went full bore with the Trump-Russia BS. Quite frankly Manafort could have been a plant in the Trump campaign to try and ensnare him.
Tony has the same manners as his brother.
Probably the same appetite too...
I still don’t see what all the ‘fuss’ is about.
Didn’t J E Carter make a ‘career’ of interferring in elections overseas...
We have been ‘monitoring’ elections around the world for years.
I guess when ‘we’ do it it is for the good of mankind.
I often wondered what the reaction would be if say Burma sent monitors to OUR elections.
The establishment launched two investigations based on the notion that Trump was colluding with Russia, and that Russian influence is the reason he was elected.
Why? To undermine his legitimacy as President and place an asterisk next to everything he does.
As for ‘fuss,’ We just found out from an ex-Podesta Group exec that Paul Manafort and Tony Podesta were peddling Russians up and down the hill, and Tony Podesta recommended Hillary’s chief advisor at the State Dept. for the Podesta Group - giving them a direct liason. Moreover, all those Facebook ads Russia bought to influence the election were actually meant to help Hillary (BLM activism, etc.) - and sought to *undermine* Trump after he won!
So - the ‘fuss’ is about the left accusing Trump of the exact “Russian collusion” that they themselves have been participating in for years at the highest levels.
Let’s not forget Bill Clinton was at Vladimir Putin’s HOUSE the same day he collected $500k for a speech to a Kremlin-tied investment bank which upgraded Uranium One, and that Tony Podesta was paid $180K to lobby for Uranium One *AFTER* they were wholly owned by Russia.
When I referred to fuss I was asking since ‘we’ do it, why get mad at Russia if ‘they’ did it.
was put out in a satirical manner....
Besides, the last pResident chastised an opponent for trying to imply that Russia was ‘bad’.... believe he even told him the 80s were over or something along that line
Apologies! My satire detector is often on the fritz.
Great point on the Obama / Romney Russia comment. “The cold war is over” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T1409sXBleg
Oh yeah and he also said “The 1980’s are calling, they want their foreign policy back”
There were some European election monitors that came here in 2012. They ran home screaming when they found out most states didnt have voter ID. Needless to say, the story was not widely reported.
The letter is out there, so I dont think thats accurate. Or are we talking a threat beyond what was in the letter from Podestas lawyer?
Heres the letter:
It is becoming more apparent every day why the private server was in use and it wasn’t for convenience.
At what point does the carpet become inadequate to cover all of the dirt? Eventually, the swamp will have to sacrifice a half dozen or more medium to high ranking “lambs” in order to save themselves. (Lois Lerner and higher???)

A hot flash comes over me every time I think of these people selling off the treasures of the US to any other nation, and getting paid for it, as though that property was their own. Have any of you ever wondered why the environmentalists have blocked us from using our own resources for so long? Is it because they want those treasures kept so they can sell them off to others, in this exact manner, to enrich themselves. How is that Uranium deal not a crime because that belongs to the American people, not those elected to government offices. This is so corrupt. I have to stop thinking about it. What kind of human being does these things? I guess they do not care about the legacy they will leave behind when they are gone.
