The whole idea of probing Manafort was to get him to flip on president Trump, but in order to do that, you’d have to be aware of a crime he committed and so far, Mueller has found bumbkiss. Mueller probably regrets going after Manafort now, since the only criminals he could finger are Tony Podesta and Greg Craig, who is a lawyer who served in the Obama and Clinton administrations.
You already knew about Podesta but you probably had no knowledge of Craig. Craig worked for both Clinton and Obama and will now face charges that he failed to register as an agent for a foreign government. Isn’t it funny that the vast majority of crimes uncovered belongs to Hillary and Obama backers?
Lawyer with Obama, Clinton ties may face federal charges: report
A lawyer with ties to the Obama and Clinton administrations may face federal charges for failing to register as a foreign agent, according to a report.
Greg Craig, 73, a former White House counsel during the Obama presidency, is under investigation regarding whether he improperly worked as a lobbyist for a group associated with Ukraine, without first registering with the Justice Department, CNN reported, citing unnamed sources.
Craig was a partner in the law firm Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP, which may face charges as well, according to the report. Craig left the firm in April, the report said.
An attorney for Craig told CNN his client “was not required to register under the Foreign Agent Registration Act.”
Previously, Craig held several posts in the Clinton administration, including helping to coordinate former President Bill Clinton’s impeachment defense, NBC News reported.
The probes of Craig and the Skadden firm are linked to former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, the sources told CNN.
Mueller probably won’t charge either Podesta or Craig and instead, refer it to the proper US Attorney.
