In 2012 Paul Manafort worked in tandem with Tony Podesta, the former superlobbyist and brother of John Podesta, on behalf of then-Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych 

 

Manafort violated a rarely-enforced law, the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA). , A huge chunk of the lobbing and legal industry in DC could potentially be prosecuted under this act, because foreign governments habitually take advantage of the abundant opportunities influence-peddlers offer their clientele. 

 

Now that Mueller has turned over the Manafort rock and seen the Ukrainian creepy-crawlies, he can’t ignore the roles of Tony Podesta and Greg Craig, two of the most-connected Democrats in the lobbying biz, who failed to make the same registration that Manafort did.

Manafort’s pro-Ukraine lobbying campaign reached Obama, Biden 

 

Paul Manafort’s pro-Ukraine campaign reached the top of the White House, with one of the members of his lobbying effort meeting President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden in 2013, according to new court documents released Friday.

 

A member of the so-called Hapsburg Group, which comprised former European politicians Manafort convened as part of his lobbying effort in support of Ukraine’s then-President Viktor Yanukovych, came with a foreign prime minister on May 16, 2013, to meet with Obama and Biden, “as well as senior United States officials in the executive and legislative branches,” according to the court documents.
