Members of the swamp protect each other. This story is a perfect example of how bad it is. Mueller is reportedly going to let Tony Podesta skate in exchange for testifying against Manafort, for basically the same alleged crime!
The Washington Examiner reports:
Robert Mueller offers Tony Podesta immunity to testify against Paul Manafort: Report
Tony Podesta, founder of the now-shuttered Podesta Group and brother to former Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta, has been offered immunity by special counsel Robert Mueller to testify against former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort, according to a report.
Fox News’ Tucker Carlson announced on his show Thursday evening that two separate sources confirmed the offer.
“In other words, for a near identical crime, Bill and Hillary’s friend could escape and emerge completely unscathed while Paul Manafort may rot in jail. Only one of them made the mistake of chairing Donald Trump’s presidential campaign,” Carlson said.
The special counsel’s office declined to comment.
Mueller is offering immunity to five potential witnesses in the upcoming trial of Manafort. Mueller’s team is asking for “use immunity,” which is a limited type of immunity, according to court documents filed Tuesday with the Eastern District of Virginia.
