Skip to comments.Glenn Greenwald 'mystified' how Tony Podesta has 'just vanished'

Media coverage of longtime Democratic lobbyist Tony Podesta has disappeared completely an astonished Glenn Greenwald remarked last week.
"I'm still somewhat mystified about how Tony Podesta - intimately involved in many of Paul Manafort's slimiest and most unscrupulous practices (because K Street sleaze is 100% bipartisan) - has just vanished from the news cycle and, apparently, legal jeopardy," the Intercept journalist said along with the hashtag "MissingTonyPodesta."
Greenwald, a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist who broke the story of U.S. mass surveillance aided by former Central Intelligence Agency analyst Edward Snowden, has been highly critical of Russia investigation coverage and the Democrats' role in fueling it.
His Twitter observation about Podesta, the founder of the now-shuttered Podesta Group and brother to former Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta, came ahead of the widely covered sentencing of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, who got less than four years behind bars for eight financial crimes, including bank fraud, tax fraud, and failure to disclose a foreign bank account.
Indeed reporting on fresh developments in the Podesta case have been sparse in recent months while the media's focus on the Russia investigation and inquires into President Trump remains intensive and widespread.
Special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Manafort led to the review of Podesta and his work for his former firm, the Podesta Group, and other lobbyists. Manafort's and Podesta's firms worked together in a public relations campaign for the European Centre for a Modern Ukraine (ECMU) nonprofit, which is believed to be backed by the pro-Russian and oligarch-funded Ukrainian political group, Party of Regions.

Is it too much to hope for that he is a resident of Gitmo??
Kinda cool...vanishing from the face of the earth like that.
Wherever he is, I hope children aren’t around.
You nailed it.
Tony Two Toes?
Didn’t one of his emails to someone use a code word that represented some sick kind of ritual or something?
Where do these people come from?
Maybe some of his playmates ate him.
Don’t kiddie porn fans like him typically hang out in Thailand?
He is under the umbrella of the Kenyanesian Usurpation.
None of them will ever face charges.
How Podesta and Rick Davis aren't behind bars, well, that says a lot, doesn't it?
Manafort has gone "Iron Jaw" (stolen from a Norman Mailer novel) because he knows he'll be out under another Trump presidency and pardoned. Even on the low he figures to put together another fortune.
This was all some dumb kabuki to appease Dem billionaire donors. Shit they all know Trump is 2-5 to win re-election.
Even this farce of a dog-and-donkey show is for Pence in 2024. The lay of the land will be completely different -- Pelosi, Schumer, Bernie out out out, and President Trump enjoying a victory lap.
Tony and John are still running the Clinton Foundation but from Libia beyond the reach of anyone.
How do you think all that Arab $$$$ got funneled into Hillary’s campaign?
Hasn’t that Epstein filth come back for another look-see? Is Podesta wanted for questioning in that matter?
Weren’t the podesta brothers allowed to backdate their registrations for working as foreign agents and allowed to amend their taxes. Basically, allowed to do the same things that Manafort should have been allowed to do and others do on a regular basis.
But Manafort worked for the Trump campaign for 20 minutes so he’s guilty.
“...Is it too much to hope for that he is a resident of Gitmo??....”
That would be wonderful!
He’s been waterboarded there and spilled ALL the beans on the CF, Hitlery, Odongo and all of his other evil ilk. LOL.
Well, I can hope/wish, can’t I? LOL
“Is it too much to hope for that he is a resident of Gitmo??”
The rumors for months are that he has been cooling his heels there.
Wherever he is, I hope children arent around.
He is likely somewhere without an extradition agreement with Spain.
He closed up shop and vanished. Meanwhile Manafort is in prison. The only difference I see is that Manafort supported Trump.
That company of military police sent to Gitmo before Christmas wasn’t sent to do housecleaning and sweep the floors.
