How much trouble is Tony Podesta in?

A representative for the Podesta Group said the firm initially did not disclose its work with the ECMU to the FARA officials because the nonprofit "had certified that it was neither funded nor directed by a foreign government or political party", according to NBC News.

One of the most powerful Democrat-linked families on K-Street continued to fight back Tuesday against the White House, Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russian investigation and even Fox News for reporting on the spiraling probe. Tony Podesta co-founded the firm with his brother John Podesta, who would become Clinton's campaign manager for the 2016 election.

His brother, Tony Podesta, on Monday stepped down from the lobbying firm he has run for three decades after special counsel Robert Mueller charged former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and his top deputy, Rick Gates, with crimes related to his work for a pro-Russia political party in Ukraine. What he know (s) about Crooked Dems is earth shattering.

Before becoming a lobbyist, he worked on presidential campaigns of Eugene McCarthy, George McGovern, Edward M. Kennedy, Walter Mondale, Michael Dukakis and Bill Clinton, the Times also noted. So far in 2017, the Podesta Group has raked in nearly $16 million in lobbying fees, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.

The spokesperson told ABC News that the Podesta Group "filed the appropriate public disclosures of its representation" of the nonprofit group called the European Centre for a Modern Ukraine in 2012.

"He added, "@realDonaldTrump seems a lot more anxious now than July 2016 when he asked the Russians to hack our campaign".

"If you want something done in Washington, DC, you go to Tony Podesta", his bio page on the Podesta Group website says.

"Mr. Podesta, a garrulous, gravelly voiced man known for his bold neckwear, is part of the elite group of lobbyists atop the industry who move easily between black-tie fund-raisers on Embassy Row and closed meetings on Capitol Hill". This transition has been underway for several months now, according to multiple unnamed sources with knowledge of the Monday meeting, Politico reported. She added: "The Podesta Group has fully cooperated with the Special Counsel's office and taken every possible step to provide documentation that confirms compliance with the law". It subsequently amended its required filings.

But in the wake of the Mueller investigation the Podesta Group has struggled. The Podesta Group's work for ECFMU, a non profit think tank, was in support of Ukraine's admission to the European Union, a position supported by foreign policy experts at the time.
