"The biggest story yesterday, the one that has the Dems in a dither, is Podesta running from his firm", Trump tweeted. "What he know about Crooked Dems is.earth shattering", he tweeted.
The Podesta Group was referenced in the indictment of former Trump Campaign Chairman Paul Manafort and his business partner, Richard Gates.
John Podesta and other members of the Democratic National Committee had their emails hacked a year ago by the Russians, and they were later slowly released by leak site WikiLeaks beginning in July 2016.
An attorney representing Democratic mega-lobbyist Tony Podesta sent the Fox News host a letter demanding that the show "immediately cease and desist disseminating false and misleading reports about Mr. Podesta and the Podesta group", Carlson said Monday on "Tucker Carlson Tonight". Podesta announced his decision during a firm-wide meeting Monday morning, and has alerted clients of his impending departure. "If you want something done in Washington, DC, you go to Tony Podesta", his website advertises.
Manafort had previously worked for a pro-Russian Ukrainian president who was eventually ousted by his people and sought asylum in Russia. Carlson also reported that Manafort's company, the European Center for a Modern Ukraine, was a major client of the Podesta group.
"The Podesta Group has fully cooperated with the special counsel's office and taken every possible step to provide documentation that confirms compliance with the law", a spokesperson for the Podesta Group told ABC News.
According to Manafort's indictment, he and Gates created a think tank in Brussels, Belgium called the European Centre for a Modern Ukraine (ECMU), which then solicited lobbying services from two companies that were only identified in the indictment documents as companies "A" and "B". The Podesta Group's work for ECFMU, a nonprofit, was in support of Ukraine's admission to the European Union, a position supported by foreign policy experts at the time.
Trump criticized the news media for largely ignoring the Podesta brothers' ties to the larger Russian Federation investigation.
"Now I'm the victim of a big lie campaign by the American President". "The ECFMU provided formal certification that it was neither funded by nor directed by a government or political party".
