It has just been revealed that Tony Podesta and the Podesta Group failed to report a donation of over $100,000 in contributions to Hillary Clinton’s campaign to the Department of Justice, reports GotNews.
Tony Podesta, the brother of Clinton Campaign Chair John Podesta, has been reported to have worked as a fundraising bundler for Hillary for America during the 2016 election. FEC reports show that Podesta raised $130,900 from July 1 through December 31, 2015, for Hillary for America.
Of course, the mainstream media hasn’t said a single thing about this new discovery, and you won’t likely hear about it on any of the left-wing media at all.
In addition to that alarming donation, Podesta gave the maximum individual contribution, $33,400 to the Hillary Victory Fund on December 14, 2015. Lobbying disclosures filed by Podesta Group and Tony Podesta for the time period reported other political contributions, but not the Clinton campaign cash.
Tony Podesta recently resigned as Chairman of the Podesta Group along with its CEO, Kimberley Fritts, apparently because of the Mueller investigation and rumors of impending indictments over other failures to disclose lobbying ties, reports Fox News.
There have been various reports that confirm that the Podesta Group is one of the two companies mentioned in the indictment of Paul Manafort and Rick Gates. The situation is so dire, apparently, Podesta is changing its name in an effort to rebrand itself.
This latest omission of raising $130,900 for Hillary Clinton’s campaign could put the firm in more trouble. Federal laws require the Podesta Group and Tony Podesta to report campaign contributions to the Justice Department.
Failure to report these donations can result in civil and criminal penalties.
