Mueller is Now Sending Prosecutors After CLINTON Allies in Bizarre Referral
WHOA. Is Mueller really sending investigators after THESE GUYS?
For those who have been keenly observing the hullaballoo surrounding the Robert Mueller investigation, there are certainly a vast swatch of unknowns to sift through.
Mueller himself seems to prefer working in the dark, so to speak, allowing only his court filing to tell the tale of his wide-scoped probe. What was once believed to be a look into possible collusion between the 2016 Trump campaign and the Russian government has turned into a bit of a free-for-all, with a number of process crimes and financial follies under the Mueller microscope as of late.
Now, in what will likely be a surprising twist of fate, a number of close confidantes of the Clintons are now being investigated thanks to Robert Mueller, leading many to wonder just how wide a scope Mueller is employing.
An investigation referred to Justice Department prosecutors by Special Counsel Robert Mueller earlier this year into possible criminal activity by Clinton-linked Washington insider Tony Podesta and former Obama White House Counsel Greg Craig is heating up, according to a new report that underscores federal authorities’ increasing enforcement of laws governing foreign business relationships.
The inquiries center not only on Craig and Podesta — a Democratic lobbyist and co-founder of the onetime lobbying powerhouse known as the Podesta Group — but also on Vin Weber, a former GOP congressman from Minnesota.
The probes had been quiet for months since Mueller referred them to authorities in New York City because they fell outside his mandate of determining whether the Trump campaign coordinated with Russia.
This unexpected move will also be sure to pique the interest of some of the internet’s wilder conspiracy theorists, who have been keeping a keen eye on the Podesta family following the massive trove of Clinton campaign emails that were disclosed by Wikileaks during the 2016 contest.
