Saudi Arabian Anti-Corruption Sweep Nets…the Podesta Group?

Tony and John Podesta may have already lawyered up for the looming tidal wave of law enforcement officials who are about to crash down upon them.  Contained in the Manafort and Gates indictment is the plainly-spoken implication of the Podesta Group in multiple counts of money laundering and racketeering, as well as the possibility of espionage (when considering that the Podesta Group was lobbying on behalf of the Ukrainian president without being registered as a Foreign Agent with the government which is a requirement).

Believe it or not, the Podesta Group, after having denied any wrongdoing and after the head of the company, Tony Podesta, stepped down from the leadership and parted ways with the group, filed for Foreign Agent application just this past month, AFTER the Manafort/Gates indictments were handed down, and a full four years AFTER the lobbying had already taken place.  In fact, the government office that accepted the Podesta Group late registration by four years has now applied it retroactively, meaning that even though they broke federal Foreign Agent Registration Act laws for four years, they are now considered exonerated of those because they just registered now.  No corruption there, right?

Whether or not the Mueller investigation team is looking into the Podesta Group is another question, but the fact remains that they appear to be unnerved by the Manafort/Gates indictments.

In the meantime, another Podesta Group foreign entanglement has now surfaced.  Last week, in the wake of a massive sweep of the Saudi Arabian corporate and government power structure, the Kingdom arrested 14 very powerful men in positions ranging from a crown prince to the owner of the Bin Laden Group.

On Sunday the Saudi Kingdom arrested dozens of princes, senior military officers, businessmen and top officials, including a well-known royal billionaire with extensive holdings in Western companies. The regime said it was part of a sweeping anti-corruption probe.

Vocal Trump critic and Clinton donor Prince Alwaleed bin Talal was arrested in the sweep.

Victory of Light posted a list of the top Saudi officials arrested this weekend.

To muddy up the waters just a bit more for the Podesta Group, it has been found that many of those arrested in this anti-corruption sweep in the KSA are deeply tied to the American company.  That being said, the inculcation of the Leftist media that Trump colluded with Russia is now on par with an almost pathological ignorance of the actual collusion by Democrats.

If this goes deeper, and the Fake News Industrial Complex continues to elide that information which proves the Right-wing charge of collusion on the parts of the Clintons, her campaign, and the people with whom she was intimately entwined, the death spiral downward for the Democrats will be utterly devastating for the current leadership and will certainly be a difficult dark period from which to rebound for the party faithful.
