Federal prosecutors are investigating former lobbyist Tony Podesta, former Rep. Vin Weber, R-Minn., and former Obama White House Counsel Greg Craig, NBC News confirmed, citing multiple sources familiar with the matter.
CNN first reported the existence of the investigation.
Prosecutors for the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Southern District of New York opened the investigation following a referral from the office of special counsel Robert Mueller, the sources told NBC.
NBC previously reported that Mueller had been looking into Podesta and his Democratic-leaning lobbying firm as part of its broader investigation into the finances of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort.
Tony Podesta is the chairman of the Podesta Group. His brother, John Podesta, was the campaign chairman for Hillary Clinton and is not currently affiliated with the lobbying firm. He is also not part of the investigation.
A representative for Tony Podesta declined to comment to CNBC.
Podesta the molesta will only get fake-investigated so they can clear him and proclaim that he’s squeaky clean and a saint.
Mueller will give him Immunity so he can testify against himself ,LOL
If the Mueller investigation bears into anyone connected with the Clintons, watch the investigation suddenly shut down. Much like the 2016 recount stopped as soon as a few over voted (more than 100%) precincts were revealed.
Head fake in all probability To deflect the “one sided Witch hunt (founded) claims”
Read and Smile
After St. Hillary’s crushing defeat Tony lost everything...lobbying firm, home, art collection, trophy wife. Everything. Now he may lose his freedom. Can’t say I’m sympathetic. Prick was loaded with hubris.
Well, well, well.
“The individuals being investigated include former lobbyist Tony Podesta, former Minnesota Republican Rep. Vin Weber and former Obama White House Counsel Greg Craig”

Don’t be fooled! This is just Mueller letting them all off the hook.
Wouldn’t shock me.
Hopefully they throw the bunch of them, in Solitary like Manafort.
Mueller is only doing this so he can say “See I’m investigating both sides it’s not a witch hunt against Trump” then he will let Podesta off the hook
Yep. It will be like the fake Clinton investigations.
