A new report claims the Podesta Group did not file as a foreign agent despite lobbying for Uranium One.

The Daily Caller News Foundation determined Tony Podesta’s lobbying firm represented the Russia-owned company during the Obama administration, but did not register under the Foreign Agents Registration Act.

The report claims Podesta collected lobbying fees of $180,000 from Uranium One.

GOP Congressman Devin Nunes says he is concerned about Poedesta’s lobbying actives, and the decision not to register under the act.

The special counsel has reportedly subpoenaed Podesta — who resigned from the firm last month– to testify and has requested records from the group.

  • Sonny Shaw

    Manafort Also had something to do with lobbying for Uranium One, I’m glade that Muller is looking at everyone in his investigation. Maybe we will finally get around to the Clinton’s, but I’m not going to hold my breath.

  • john

    This is a test for Mueller – Is he a partisan hack or is he actually conducting a fair investigation. Will he indict Podesta and the Podesta Group under the same statutes that he used to indict Manafort and the other guy?

  • Roy Beane

    Don’t mess with this thug…..get a rope; yonder’s a high tree limb.

  • Mark Hom

    $180K is peanuts for the Clintons but still treasonous. The Clinton Foundation made $145,000,000 Million from the Uranium One pay for play deal (and Bill Clinton made $500K from one Russia speech), much more treasonous. Lock em’ up!

    • Phil M. Kelley

      What is the current going rate for a Clinton speech?

  • Mark Hom

    If Tony Podesta was Manafort’s boss in Russia dealings, isn’t that more of a crime? Why hasn’t Tony Podesta been arrested?

  • 84Cheetah

    It’s about time. And many of the people who already knew this are on Mueller”s payroll right now.

  • Leo Smith

    Treason by the Democrats must be addressed or America will do it for the DOJ.

  • nfcapitalist

    The seventh floor of the Hoover Building are covering up the cover-up… they were certain the Clinton crime syndicate would win and now these treasonous suits in the DC swamp are scrambling to scrub their complicity… makes me sick to think that the treason of Benedict Arnold and Tories of America’s historical beginnings has been found to be “a matter” when measured and weighed against Uranium One!

  • swifty656

    Yes and that isn’t Trumped up like Trump’s Russian fantasy. I guess one should attribute it to being a dem and forget it. The uranium deal was real and the Clintons made millions off it while crippling our own national security.

  • Hottotrote

    Did Mueller when he went to Russia with that yellow cake of Uranium?

  • American1

    So you’re saying the daily caller scooped Ferris Mueller and the boys again?

  • FrankNitti2

    You’d think that Mueller would jump on this revelation and start his own investigation before a non-democrat Special Counsel is appointed. This way, he can ensure that evidence is destroyed and Podesta goes free.

    • nfcapitalist

      Robert Mueller, USMC veteran, makes me sick to my stomach to see you covering up treason against our country… is it blackmail… what possible excuse is there for treason?

  • notwar

    Why hasn’t this guy been indicted by a grand jury, like Manafort?
    Why the one sided witch hunt?

    • Phil M. Kelley

      Do you REALLY have to ask that question?

      • notwar

        It was more of a rhetorical question…thanks.

  • jackie

    We the people need to take a stand and make sure all are charged not just one side.
    If Muellar can not d his jog he needs to go and someone else take over.
    All we see is one sided right now and that will not cut it.

  • jackie

    So arrest him as you doing to the other side.
    What is the hold up?
    Oh that right he a Hillary buddy and Muellar and McCabe will protest them.
    Flynn is a witness in a sexual discrimination case against Mc Cabe and others in the FBI from two years ago this is their revenge on Flynn and we hope it all comes out when Flynns arrested.
    Maybe that is why he has not been arrested yet maybe he is making a plea deal I assure wont be against Trump.

  • jackie

    Where was Obama admin they just let anyone lobby on behave a foreign gov and not make sure they legal to do so?
    Why does this not surprise us?

  • James Batten Jr.

    Isn’t this the same thing that they’re charging Manafort?

  • intimeforthedime

    Ooooops, my bad. I will do it right next time…

  • Scott Snerd

    this whole lobbying bullspit needs to be STOPPED and made illegal

    • nfcapitalist

      Congress, both the house and senate are the brass ring lottery win for thieves and lawyers (but then I repeat myself) for getting rich from “insider trading.”

      This kind of treason should be punished by something much worse than the death penalty… they should be exposed and forced to beg America for the citizen’s forgiveness… on HDTV.

  • Scott Henke

    I’m shocked.

  • xmisterx9

    So when will Podesta have a $10 million bail bond and be put under house arrest with an ankle bracelet?
    Seriously…

  • Boomer

    Lockup both podestas & Don’t forget the pedophile charges on john

  • jobardu

    The DOJ/FBI may be too far gone to rescue this cluster chuck of an investigation or to get started on anything related to the Clintons or their organization. Mueller and Comey pass the” Duck Test” for crooked cops on a witch hunt.

    They walk like a Duck (crooked cops):– They are biased to one side and only investigate one aspect of the problem-Trump. In this aspect they act like they have no limits and can spend whatever they want and investigate whatever they want, whether it concerns Russia or not.

    They talk like a Duck:– They they don’t answer any questions about an obviously important national investigation. They give no guidance or reassurance that they are fulfilling their duty despite the evidence and legitimate questions raised by non-Democratic Government leaders, or even some other law enforcement officials.

    They look like a Duck:– Mueller (and Comey, his partner in crime) hired mostly former Clinton staffers and known partisan. There was no way that crew would pass any test that they would be non-partisan and objective in doing their duty (which the evidence shows is to get Trump).

    At this point it is hard to know if Obama and Clinton left any Government organization in DC uncorrupted and unpoliticized. It is like Diogenes of Sinope (or Noah) searching for an honest man. They didn’t find any either.

    • Peter Foster

      They will not walk if people like you and me stand up!!!!

      • jobardu

        Amen to that! Too many conservatives complain and call out the baloney, but not enough of those who can act do. Conservatives aren’t poor and they should be able to muster the resources to initiate legal and regulatory action against left wing abusers of power, rewriters of history and verbal defamers.

  • TYvets

    Oh, what a tangled web they weave

    • Peter Foster

      Sessions is playing rope a dope so that it all comes out. Trump ( the master mind ) dragged Flynn and mueller into the middle of it so that it would all come out

      Don’t back down and let this get swept under the rug. Stand up!

  • FoolIggy

    DRAIN THE SWAMP of ALL SWAMP RATS!

    Convention of States needed to get Constitutional Amendment needed to ensure all Government service personnel, whether elected or appointed MUST FALL UNDER SAME LAW AS ALL AMERICAN TAXPAYERS!

    Time to stop the CORRUPTION IN OUR GOVERNMENT where the DC swamp looks out for each other no matter whose party we are talking about. They are all RATS and all corrupt!

    • Phil M. Kelley

      Careful! if we get rid of ALL the swamp rats, D.C. will be deserted.

      • FoolIggy

        Phil: That is the idea, get rid of the DC professional swamp rats and get REAL AMERICAN’s to serve their country rather than the RATS who only serve themselves, their family, and friends!

        Those that serve must live under the same laws they create, be part of the same retirement system, and have their THEFT BY RETIREMENT salaries capped to be no more than the maximum of any civil service employee.

        Ain’t NEVER gonna happen as long as the CONGRESSIONAL RATS control the cheese!

        • Phil M. Kelley

          If you want to clean out the Congressional Swamp Rats as well, you are gonna have real problems with the senators who were just re-elected in 2016 and have six year terms–principal among those would be one John McCain

          • FoolIggy

            Couldn’t agree more. Hopefully, red-blooded American’s will support Convention of States to eliminate the McCain’s and other LIFELONG money sucking swamp rats from America’s system with term limits AND no retirement AND living under the same laws as the rest of America’s taxpayers live with.

  • survivor50

    Pitch forks and torches…
    It may be the ONLY way…

  • survivor50

    “Podesta Lobbied For Uranium One, Did Not File as Foreign Agent…”
    Oh…It’s OK…He filed this summer…5 years late !!! After Mueller and Comey advised him of an upcoming investigation to be announced, after Rosenstein decided when it would be good…
    Now if you, I, or a Republican political operative did that …WELL !!!

    • Peter Foster

      He forgot to fill out a piece of paper. He is so upright that he had to step down because he had made such a drastic mistake. I think not. There us more to come

    • Bama Bill

      You know Comey got almost a MILLION dollars from Mr. George Soros. Of course it was funneled into his wife’s account! Soros just dumped another 18 Billion into the Liberals account, he pays thousands of liberals salaries and expenses. Let’s see, at UI office is “Protestor” an occupation? Yup, sure is!

      • JeffS

        But it was Comey’s action that ultimately sunk Hillary’s candidacy. Instead of vilifying Comey you should be building monuments to him. Had he kept his mouth shut, HRC would have easily defeated the Orange Menace.

        So your entire conspiracy theory has more holes than your head.

    • john

      Manafort only waited a year and he was charged!

  • Andrew Moore8

    So the real law breakers and Russian connection lies within the demoncrapic libtard left party after all…..who would have thunk it? I guess it explains what hitlery meant when she was caught on a hot mic saying “if this guy (Trump) gets elected, we are all going to go to prison.

    • tully bascomb

      What she really said.
      “If that f – – – ing bastard wins, we all hang from nooses! ” – Hillary Clinton

    • Peter Foster

      Lock her up !

      • JeffS

        If she does get locked up, she’ll have plenty of republicans to keep her company. Manafort is looking at 80 years and forfeiture of everything he has and his wife appears to have been implicated. Wonder what he’d be willing to do to keep his wife out of jail.

        And then there’s Flynn and his son, both looking at hefty jail sentences. Again, wonder what Flynn will do to keep his son out of jail.

        Regarding Sessions, he could be facing perjury charges for lying to e Senate on multiple occasions.

        • Phil M. Kelley

          The foam at the corners of your mouth is beginning to show.

          • JeffS

            Typical. Can’t argue the facts so you hurl lame, junior high insults. Doesn’t change that 2 of the “great people” Trump had around him are going to prison for a long time if they don’t give up the President. You helped put a Russian spy in the White House. And nothing HRC did is as bad as that.

          • Phil M. Kelley

            You say I cannot argue facts while you argue “facts” which do not exist. Every day you drink the purple koolaid MSNBC serves and you probably think Madcow is the smartest info babe on the planet–maybe even the hottest (trying not to hurl.)

          • JeffS

            Fact: Manafort has been indicted and is facing 80 years in a Federal Penitentiary plus forfiture of everything. Fact: Indictments should be issued any day now for Flynn and his son.

            Opinion: Flynn will flip to keep his son out of jail and Manafort will flip to keep some of his cash and to avoid dying in prison.

            People who voted for Trump have done more damage to this country than any terrorist or illegal alien ever has. And all of your insults and childish name calling can’t change that.

          • Phil M. Kelley

            You neglect to mention that Manafort was indicted for acts which allegedly occurred before there was a Trump campaign. Once Flynn is indicted you may argue the fact of that indictment. At the present moment there is absolutely NO evidence of any kind that POTUS was involved in any kind of collusion or conspiracy with anything or anyone Russian.

          • JeffS

            So you think that since the crimes Manafort is currently charged with occurred before the 2016 election, then anything he has to say about Trump will be inadmissible? Manafort is looking at a death sentence and his wife living out her twilight years in poverty. The only way he avoids dying in prison is to give up Trump.

            And rumor has it kushner is facing money laundering charges.

          • Phil M. Kelley

            Rumor is now fact and Manafort is facing the death penalty instead of a mere 80 years and you just KNOW that Manafort has tons of dirt to pile on Trump, who could easily stop the whole charade by pardoning Manafort now if he were worried about anything Manafort could throw at him. You are only digging yourself a deeper hole, ace.

          • JeffS

            Dude, go rob your grandkids piggy bank and go buy a clue. I specifically said it was a rumor. And for a man of Manafort’s age, 80 years is a death sentence.

            Here’s a clue for free. Trump was relieved that Manafort was indicted for stuff that occurred before the election. That means he was afraid Manafort was going to be indicted for stuff that occurred during the election. That means he knows Manafort could have been indicted for stuff that did occur during the election.

            Brace yourself or load up alcoholic beverages, because it will hit the fan.

  • Ken Williams

    The Obama Hillary years are just one big scandal being ignored by the media. The DOJ needs some balls to get started on investigations of the FBI leadership of Mueller and Comey.

    • jobardu

      Good point. I replied above for more visibility.

  • SaidNO2Liberalism

    Sessions, get after this. NOW

    • Bill Jordan

      He might… if he gets enough Geritol.

      • Bama Bill

        You don’t know Jeff, he speaks softly, but wields a “Big Stick”. I trust him after knowing him for 20 years.

    • Jim

      It was pointed out on Hannity tonight that Sessions’ recusal on “Russian Interference and Collusion in 2016 Campaign” does not include Uranium One. He better have an investigation underway.

      • Peter Foster

        Why is this about Sessions let’s not sweep it under the rug with a special counsel

      • Phil M. Kelley

        We are not supposed to know about everyone the DOJ/FBI is investigating–at least not until the investigation is done and somebody is indicted

  • jbfurby

    Flynn will go to jail, Podesta will get a pass.

    • Peter Foster

      Just the opposite podesta and Hillary will go to jail

      • jbfurby

        Can only hope that you’re right.

  • Dean

    If Congress did not know about U1 who was he lobbying. The state department? (could that have been Hillary)

    • Peter Foster

      Why bring up Hillary? What did she gave to do with it? anybody could have given $145,000,000.00

    • JeffS

      So HRC’s single vote on the 9 member Committee on Foreign Investment carried the day? Wasn’t the vote 9-0 in favor of the acquisition. So even if HRC was bought and paid for, she wouldn’t have been able to negate the votes of the other 8 members. Or does logic play into your partisan views?

      • john

        The other eight votes were also Clinton or obama loyalists, moron.

        • JeffS

          Ah, so it’s a conspiracy between Obama & Hillary plus 8 other people. Gotcha.

  • MikeyParks

    It looks like Podesta is getting ready to be set up as the patsy to save Hillary’s wrinkled a$$.

    • HarryObrian

      Thanks for that visual… now I will be missing breakfast…

      • Bama Bill

        Too late, just lost mine.

    • American1

      Can’t imagine how huge the reward must be for diving under the bus like this.

  • landy fincannon

    This is going to be like the HSBC scandal. We’ll never know the depth to which would go.

    Here is an example of what I mean.

    Bill Clinton and Carter Page have both played a role in the whole Russian mess. Well, it turns out that they are both council on foreign relations members

    • ShemSilber2

      What a mess! As Sir Walter Scott wrote, “Oh! what a tangled web we weave/When first we practice to deceive!”

      We have made the mess, and it will take the power of the Master Yahusha (Lord Jesus) to drain the swamp for the whole earth and give us everlasting peace on earth, and ageless bodies by which to enjoy it, amein!

      • landy fincannon

        Yes, amein, my dear friend.

      • Peter Foster

        Yes I agree. And I pray that He uses me to help Him accomplish these things. let’s not forget his call for justice. On earth as it is in heaven

        • ShemSilber2

          In Yahusha’s (Jesus’) Name, amein.

          • Phil M. Kelley

            Hallelujah! Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition…

          • ShemSilber2

            Yes, indeed! Will you be there with the Master Yahusha (Lord Jesus) when He comes judging and making war in righteousness (Revelation 19:11) to make the kingdoms of this world the Kingdom of Yahuwah and of His Messiah (Revelation 11:15)? We will be, if we are with Him, and He will give us the victory over all the evils on the face of the earth.

            HalleluYAH and amein, for His mercy and His justice both endure forever, amein.

          • Phil M. Kelley

            *Sigh* My Hallelujah post was meant to be tongue-in-cheek. And if “being there” means I would have to spend all eternity listening to you, I will pass.

          • ShemSilber2

            “Hallelujah” is all too often lightly treated, but it should never be used “tongue-in-cheek” or in jest, because that is reducing the Name of the Master of Creation to vanity, as the third commandment warns us against, for Yahuwah will not hold him guiltless who takes His Name in vain.

            You remind me of the time that a certain “lady” said that when she died, she was going to heaven, and my precious late mom retorted, “Well, then I’m sure as hell going to change my ways.” OY!

            So who am I somebody special, that you should listen to me? HA! The one to whom you should listen is the Master Yahusha (Lord Jesus), who formed us in the womb for the purpose of offering us everlasting life through washing our sins clean in His sinless blood that He gave for that purpose, and to guarantee perfect immortality to those who would choose life by His resurrection.

            HalleluYAH and amein!

    • Peter Foster

      Let’s not let that happen. Lock her up

    • Bama Bill

      Now how can a charity organization only spend a small percentage of it’s donations on helping, and over 90% on expenses? Ask the Clinton’s. It is a scheme to have staff on the payroll when they need a “Hit” job done, or other underhanded work done. After all, Hil-LIAR-y learned it all in Chicago, and she was a licensed “LIAR” aka “lawyer”.

  • Fred Weatherly

    No surprise there. What will be a surprise is if the special prosecutor actually indict’s Podesta.

    • Bob Ritthsler

      Since Mueller is just a Clinton protection agency don’t expect him to indict anybody close to the Clintons.

      • Leo Smith

        That is why Mueller needs to be investigated for his Treason.

      • Sonny Shaw

        The Podesta Brothers are pretty close to the Clinton’s and the Foundation.

    • Charlie

      What will be the real surprise is: will be the DOJ be doing anything.
