BOMBSHELL: Tucker Carlson: Podestas, Manafort Are Central Figures in ‘Russia Probe’, NOT TRUMP (VIDEO)
Tucker Carlson dropped a bombshell on his Fox News show Tuesday evening.
The Podestas and Paul Manafort are central figures in the ‘Russia Probe’, NOT TRUMP according to a source inside of the Podesta group.
Via Fox News:
A thus-far-reliable source who used to be involved with Clinton allies John and Tony Podesta told Tucker Carlson that press reports appearing to implicate President Trump in Russian collusion are exaggerated.
The source, who Carlson said he would not yet name, said he worked for the brothers’ Podesta Group and was privy to some information from Robert Mueller’s special investigation.
While media reports describe former “Black, Manafort & Stone” principal Paul Manafort as Trump’s main tie to the investigation, the source said it is Manafort’s role as a liaison between Russia and the Podesta Group that is drawing the scrutiny.
The “vehicle” Manafort worked for was what Carlson called a “sham” company with a headquarters listed in Belgium but whose contact information was linked to Kiev, the Ukrainian capital.
Manafort was, at the time, representing Russian business and political interests during the Obama era.
The source said the Podesta Group was in regular contact with Manafort while Hillary Clinton was America’s chief diplomat.
“We got an email from a man with direct personal knowledge from that story (Podestas being investigated). He’s a former senior employee of the Podesta Group,” Tucker said.
Tucker’s source said the Russians were deeply involved in American politics but the real story has nothing to do with the 2016 presidential campaign.
The source told Tucker that Manafort worked for the Podesta Group on behalf of Russian interests. In fact, Manafort was seen inside of the Podesta Group’s office all the time.
Maria Bartiromo was correct! The Democrats and Podestas are the ones with the ties to the Russians.
The sources also told Tucker Carlson that Tony Podesta was in constant contact with then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. In fact, Tony Podesta was so close to Hillary that he was considered a part of the Clinton Foundation.
In 2013 or 2014 a representative from the Clinton Foundation met with Tony Podesta to discuss how to assist Uranium One.
This is a stunning development….
