THE PODESTA LOBBYING FIRM PREPARES THEIR EMPLOYEES TO CLOSE THEIR DOORS. PODESTA HAS DIRECT TIES WITH CLINTON AND FUSION GPS. THE LOBBYING GROUP HAS AVOIDED ANY INDICTMENTS AT THIS POINT BUT AS NEW REVELATIONS HAVE COME OUT ARE THEY PREPARING TO TUCK TAIL AND RUN?
SPEAKING OF: NOW THAT DEMOCRATS HAVE BEEN BUSTED FOR HAVING THEIR HANDS IN THE RUSSIAN COLLUSION CASE IT’S BECOME SO CLEAR JUST HOW ONE-SIDED THIS WHOLE SHAM REALLY IS. EVEN THOUGH WE HAVE KNOWN ABOUT CLINTON’S INVOLVEMENT IN THE CASE FOR WEEKS NOW, THE FIRM DIRECTLY TIED TO HER, PODESTA, HAS NOT BEEN INDICTED? MEANWHILE, MANAFORT WAS DRAGGED THROUGH THE MUD IMMEDIATELY FOR THEIR RELATIONS WITH PRESIDENT TRUMP?
WILL PODESTA BE INDICTED FOR THEIR CONNECTIONS WITH FUSIONS GPS AND FOREIGN COUNTRIES? WILL THEY REALLY TAKE THE FALL FOR HILLARY? WE CAN ONLY WAIT AND SEE.
AS REPORTED BY THEODORIC MEYER WITH POLITICO.
Tony Podesta’s lavish art collection is coming down off the walls at the Podesta Group, as the lobbying firm — among the largest and most powerful in Washington — prepares to close up shop.
Workers started removing dozens of pieces in Podesta’s collection of photography and other artworks from the walls of the firm on Thursday, the same day Kimberley Fritts, the firm’s longtime chief executive, abruptly resigned, according to a Podesta Group staffer.
Fritts is starting her own firm and intends to bring many of the firm’s top lobbyists with her, according to seven Podesta Group staffers, who spoke on condition of anonymity to describe the situation candidly. But less than two weeks after Podesta stepped down as chairman, the firm he founded 30 years ago may soon shut its doors, with staffers unsure if they’ll be paid after next week.
“The firm as it existed is essentially over,” one Podesta Group staffer said. “The vast majority of people are going their own way.”
At an emotional staff meeting late Thursday afternoon, Fritts told staffers they could clear out their offices and said that Wednesday might be their last payday.
