Gee, so did the Podesta brothers' lobbying firm.

Lobbying powerhouse the Podesta Group filed paperwork with the Justice Department today acknowledging that its work years ago for a European nonprofit benefited the same Ukrainian political party once advised by Paul Manafort, who later ran Donald Trump’s presidential campaign.

Oh and look, the Podestas have lobbied on behalf of the Saudis for years, and were registered foreign agents while John boy was managing hillary's campaign!

The lobby firm created by both Tony and John Podesta in 1988 receives $140,000 a month from the Saudi government, a government that beheads nonviolent dissidents, uses torture to extract forced confessions, doesn't allow women to drive, and bombs schools, hospitals and residential neighborhoods in neighboring Yemen.

The Podesta Group's March 2016 filing, required under the Foreign Agents Registration Act of 1938, shows that Tony Podesta himself oversees the Saudi account. At the same time, Tony Podesta is also a top campaign contributor and bundler for Hillary Clinton. So while one brother runs the campaign, the other brother funds it with earnings that come, in part, from the Saudis.

The Clintons are always a good choice for them to blame.

And there it is!  See, the dems did it too!

Of course the Dems did it too.  They all do it, they've all spent years doing it.  This is another nothing-burger.  If it wasn't, the fact that podesta did the same while managing hillary's campaign would have you up in arms.

But you don't care about that,....   But TRUMP!!

You idiots are acting like you found some kind of smoking gun, because Manafort lobbied on behalf of the Ukraine. While they were opposed to Russian actions in the Crimea no less. And somehow this is proof of Russian collusion,...

Yeah right.

Forgot to mention that he was lobbying for the sect of Ukraine that was in favor of defecting to Moscow.  That he was already being investigated for that activity in a separate corruption scandal.  Not to mention that money laundering was probably involved, he denied being in the ledger but then later was exposed......

They both lobbied for the same group:

Furthermore, Manafort spent time lobbying extensively AGAINST Russia in the Ukraine, at the critical time period of the Russian takeover in the Crimea.:

Mr. Manafort pressed Mr. Yanukovych to sign an agreement with the European Union that would link the country closer to the West — and lobbied for the Americans to support Ukraine’s membership, as well, despite deep reservations because of the prosecution of Ms. Tymoshenko.

Mr. Manafort helped draft a report defending the prosecution that Mr. Yanukovych’s government commissioned from the law firm of Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom in 2012.

Mr. Manafort’s role was disclosed after a document was discovered in a box in a sauna belonging to a former senior Ukrainian official. Other documents in that cache are now evidence in a criminal case against a former justice official, and could shed more light on Mr. Manafort’s role.

Ultimately Mr. Yanukovych disregarded Mr. Manafort’s advice and refused to sign the trade agreement, which Mr. Putin vehemently opposed. Mr. Yanukovych’s decision led to the protests that culminated in two nights of violence in February 2014 and Mr. Yanukovych’s flight.

I really have no interest in this. Hillary isn't the president. If she had won then maybe I'd be interested enough to actually look into it. She didn't so I don't.

Are you really trying to make the case that Manafort isn't Pro Russia in a thread where he registered as a foreign agent while working on the Trump campaign aka he was getting paid to lobby for Russia while getting paid by Trump?
