Mueller Offers Immunity To Democrat Tony Podesta To Testify Against Manafort

Special Counsel Robert Mueller has reportedly offered immunity to Democratic lobbyist Tony Podesta in exchange for testimony against Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort.

Fox News’ Tucker Carlson reported exclusively on Thursday night that two sources confirmed to the network that Podesta was offered immunity to testify against Manafort for a “near identical crime.”

“In other words, for a near identical crime, Bill and Hillary’s friend could escape and emerge completely unscathed while Paul Manafort may rot in jail,” Carlson said. “Only one of them made the mistake of chairing Donald Trump’s presidential campaign.”

Last October, Podesta stepped down from the Podesta Group, an organization that he founded, after it came under investigation by Mueller at the same time that Manafort and Rick Gates were indicted for financial crimes. Politico reported:

The investigation into Podesta and his firm grew out of investigators’ examination of Manafort’s finances. Manafort organized a PR campaign on behalf of a nonprofit called the European Centre for a Modern Ukraine. Podesta Group was one of several firms that were paid to do work on the PR campaign to promote Ukraine in the U.S.

Podesta Group filed paperwork with the Justice Department in April stating that it had done work for the European Centre for a Modern Ukraine that also benefited the same Ukrainian political party that Manafort once advised.

This latest development in Mueller’s Russia investigation may add to the overwhelming allegations of political bias that he has been accused of as his team of prosecutors is comprised of only Democrat prosecutors with no Republicans on his staff.

This is indicative of the fact the Mueller’s target has always been Donald Trump…just as has been Peter Strzok’s, James Comey’s, John Brennan’s, James Clapper’s, and the entire 7th floor of the FBI.

Never have I witnessed a more coordinated group of lying son of a bitches supposedly representing law enforcement and U.S. intelligence agencies. They have no interest in supporting constitutional law.

Both violated the same FARA act. One is indicted, the other is offered immunity. Really makes you think.

Offering Podesta immunity isn’t a conspiracy. immunity as an instrument helps Mueller put enormous pressure to bear on Manafort—in turn, Manafort will likely implicate his accomplices.

Offense based sentencing. Basically a point system used to get wrongdoers to snitch on their buddies. Going over what Manafort’s been charged with, there’s plenty of enhancement points for Mueller to work with.

Manafort is going to need a soap-on-a-rope post haste.

I have to wonder what Judge Ellis will say about Mueller’s ‘instrument’ to go after the President. It’s obvious you don’t care whether Podesta or any other Dem. escapes justice- as long as they can somehow get Trump.

I am now far more inclined to see this as a woefully biased prosecution than I have ever been. Podesta will sing any tune Mueller tells him to, with gusto in the hopes he can de legitimize an election his brother somehow managed to lose.

You’re right, I don’t care what happens to Podesta. I just don’t. I get what Mueller’s doing is all. Federal sentencing guidelines gives Mueller quite a bit of sway. That Manafort is likely going to be hit up with enhanced bonus points versus the other kind—subtracting points equals less time—he’ll no doubt sing like a bird.

It’s not bias. It’s not some goddamned conspiracy. It’s not complicated either. There’s no mystery about it. It’s strategy. Prosecutors at all levels, especially Federal prosecutors use similar strategies every day.

Mueller’s role is now clear.

There are two primary objectives,

  1. Obstruction of the Trump agenda, with hopes of impeachment;

  2. Cover up the crimes of the Clinton/obama Deep State.

    • if cover up not completely possible, immunize senior level Democrats.

The Mueller probe is there to save the Clintons and the DOJ/FBI by ensuring that the attention stays focused on Donald Trump. If this Podesta immunity offer materializes then the Mueller probe must be immediately shut down. It is an abomination of justice. A total scam.

If Podesta had worked for Donald Trump and Paul Manafort was the Democrat, then Manafort would have gotten immunity and Podesta would be in solitary right now. Sad to see Mueller making a literal MOCKERY of justice and due process, and all for a witch hunt.

The citizens of this country need to know why Mueller is giving Tony Podesta immunity to testify against Manafort. Podesta is guilty of the same crimes they are charging Manafort with. Plus he played key role in Uranium One deal with Russia!

Podesta may get immunity from Mueller, but he’s open to prosecution by others.

What if Tony Podesta wasn’t offered immunity to testify against Paul Manafort, but rather Hillary Clinton? There are folks out there who think the Mueller investigation is actually secretly in place to take down the Deep State. It’s just a theory, but it would explain a lot.

Only one can hope…but I highly doubt it. the only thing Mueller has shown me is that he’s apart of the Clinton machine.

if u agree with that strategy and not Trump’s, then u r just a plain redneck,bigot hypocrite…

First of all, TC hasn’t offered evidence of his claim and secondly, Mueller’s got the documentation to prosecute Manafort and doesn’t need Podesta. And thirdly, if Podesta has committed a crime, he should be prosecuted as well.

Donald Trump does a fine job of keeping the attention focused on himself. :joy:

Imagine, it the Dems had a platform that wasn’t just pandering to the poor- that would shut trump right out of the headlines…

But no need to worry about that happening, their mantra ‘keep hate alive’ is still the DNC’s guiding star.
