The Dismantling of the Clinton Machine Accelerates

Even the Washington Post (!) mentions – in a headline! – that Tony Podesta has resigned from the Podesta Group as a consequence of Mueller’s investigation:

Amid swirl of controversy, Democratic power lobbyist Podesta steps down

The first paragraph:

“Tony Podesta, a Democratic power lobbyist, announced to colleagues Monday that he is stepping down amid a series of indictments that cast a shadow on work his firm had done with Paul Manafort that may have benefited a Ukrainian regime friendly to the Kremlin.”

Second, NBC News says,

Podesta Group, Mercury Are Companies ‘A’ and ‘B’ in Indictment

The indictment, unsealed Monday, refers to “Company A” and “Company B” as the firms Manafort and Gates solicited in 2012 to lobby on behalf of the Ukranian government.

Tony Podesta, who founded the left-leaning Podesta Group in 1988, stepped down from his position with the firm on Monday morning, an employee told NBC News.

Tony Podesta is the brother of Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta, who is not under investigation.

And HOLY SHIT! Another NBC News piece has THIS as its HEADLINE!!!!:

Mueller Now Investigating Democratic Lobbyist Tony Podesta

For a major Old Media organization to be reporting on a Democrat being investigated like this is surprising, but to put the fact that he’s a Democrat in the headline – whew! That’s new, seriously new.

Then, just yesterday, Donna Brazile absolutely hangs Hillary out to dry – in Politico! – in an exerpt from her forthcoming book:

Inside Hillary Clinton’s Secret Takeover of the DNC

Brazile rips into Clinton for taking over the Democratic National Committee, in terms of finances and decision-making power, before the 2016 Democratic nomination contest had even begun, let alone concluded. In other words, Clinton took over the party apparatus that was supposed to oversee a fair nomination contest between Clinton and others like Sanders. That is, one of the players in the game managed to get herself appointed referee of the game.

Brazile is a corrupt and self-serving asshole, but never mind that for now. The important thing is that the anti-Clinton preference cascade continues.
