I love those Monday mornings when the name "Podesta" suddenly begins trending on Twitter, but this time it's for all the right reasons. There must be something in the water. First, Harvey Weinstein gets forced out of his own company. Now, Tony Podesta resigns from his own lobbying firm, "for the greater good" of the company. What a team player you are, Tony!
Per Politico [linked here]:
Podesta announced his decision during a firm-wide meeting Monday morning and is alerting clients of his impending departure.
Podesta is handing over full operational and financial control to longtime firm CEO Kimberley Fritts, according to multiple sources with knowledge of the meeting. Fritts and a senior group of the Podesta team will be launching a new firm in the next one or two days. Sources said the transition has been in the works for the past several months.
Fritts also addressed the gathering, telling staff that she is “thrilled at this opportunity” and that, “This is not about me, this is about y’all.” Several other senior staff spoke about their excitement about the future of the firm. The meeting ended with a resounding ovation for Podesta.
Yes, this is all about "you all." We have no doubt that Fritts is 1000% correct. And it's also about everybody else who's been swimming in the swamp.
Podesta’s decision to leave the firm came on the same day that former Donald Trump campaign aides Paul Manafort and Rick Gates were indicted on multiple charges, including money laundering, operating as federal agents of the Ukrainian government, failing to disclose overseas bank accounts and making false statements to federal authorities. Trump campaign foreign policy advisor George Papadopoulos pleaded guilty earlier this month for lying to the FBI about his contacts with Russian officials, according to court records.
Hey, Tony, was the indictment meant to be a birthday gift for Hillary?
Did Hillary Let Tony Eat Cake?
You've got to wonder if Tony came crawling to the Lizard Queen on his hands and knees during her 70th birthday party this past weekend, begging for a parachute. Surely he knew his neck was already on the hatchet block. Did Hillary choose to leave him hanging in the breeze? Or is she now powerless as she waits for the knock of the Jacobins at her own door?
Per the Daily Caller [linked here]:
Clinton hung out with Sidney Blumenthal and political consultant Tony Podesta this weekend at the former Democratic presidential candidate birthday bash. Podesta’s appearance at the party is awkward, considering he has become a key figure in special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into Russian influence in the election.
Mueller’s investigation into Podesta began as a fact-finding mission about Manafort’s role in the campaign but quickly morphed into a criminal inquiry into whether the firm violated the Foreign Agents Registration Act, known as FARA, according to an NBC report earlier this month.
Ah, FARA, the Foreign Agents Registration Act. It would seem that Hillary's boys have been playing where they shouldn't have, in Ukraine. Western journalists have been quizzing Putin on what his next steps are with regards to Ukraine. Tony should have listened as Putin's steel-cold logic, linked in the Youtube video below, explained exactly what has happened to Ukraine and who is responsible. (Looking at you and your gang, Tony.)
Putin Schools a Journalist
Many thanks to the Vineyard Saker [linked here] for sharing this slam-down by Putin when an ignoramus western journalist told Putin that the Ukraine ball is "in his court." Putin then replies to the journalist with those laser-like piercing blue eyes and explains exactly who is to blame for Ukraine. "Then there were riots backed by the United States - financially, politically, and in the media - and by all of Europe." He goes on for about ten minutes so that the whole world gets the picture:
Now we watch to see where the hatchet lands next. Will brother John be next?
Addendum All Hallow's Eve
In one of those brilliant knife-twists for which DJT has become famous, a move that is so deliciously Roman and Caesar all at once, the President has now invited the Podesta Boyz to join The Machine. No, Podesta, there will be no pardons. But there there is an empty chair at the table of Camelot.
The Spirit Cooker himself, in true "can't-help-it-I'm-a-quintessential-narcissist" fashion, responds. Oooh! Did he really just mention #PizzaGate? Seriously? He had to go there??!!
We await Act II. Meanwhile, Corey Feldman has vowed to keep silent no longer. You can help him raise $10,000,000 to produce his Hollywood #Pedogate exposure film and help him hire security for his family. His donation page is at IndieGoGo [linked here]. Funny that you don't see the Clinton Foundation offering any love to Corey.
