Clinton-Connected Lobbying Firm Admits Failure To Disclose Work For Indian Government

November 29, 2016


The Podesta Group disclosed the lobbying activities in an amended filing submitted to the Justice Department earlier this month, the Washington Free Beacon reported on Monday.

The documents lists five separate contacts that Podesta Group chairman Tony Podesta, a prolific Hillary Clinton campaign donor, made with his brother and former business partner, John Podesta, to discuss U.S.-India relations in 2014 and 2015. During that period, John Podesta, who co-founded the Podesta Group with Tony in 1988, served as White House counselor and then as Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman.

The Podesta Group’s failure to disclose the lobbying was an apparent violation of the Foreign Agents Registration Act. Under the law, which was enacted in the 1930s to prevent Nazis from planting propaganda in the U.S., lobbyists are required to disclose all lobbying activities carried out on behalf of foreign governments to the Justice Department.

The Indian government hired the Podesta Group in 2010 to lobby on its behalf. As part of the contract, which brought the Podesta Group $350,000 every six months, the lobbying firm made contact with hundreds of government officials, members of Congress, congressional staffers and members of the media to discuss India issues.

    Another example of how rules apply to we mere mortals, and not to the Clintons or any of their minions. The very implication of a Trump campaign worker being in employ of a Russian company had the media calling for their removal from the staff. Yet where is outrage here? Is it because the election is over and they lost?

    John Podesta…
    Another Government Employee…Making Millions Off The Tax Payer, By Salary Or Deals With Foreign Governments…Will It Ever Stop??

  • rwendling70 says:

    Hmmm, who was the Secretary of State for the years Jan ’09 through Jan ’13 when the brothers Podesta, were hired by India to spread money around in the District of Criminals? Why it was the lying, money-grubbing, influence-peddling, treasonous, incompetent Killary Klinton. I’m positive there was absolutely no connection between the Podesta Group and Killary Klinton, except for the money rolling into the Klinton Foundation!

    Another POS that needs to bit the dust!

    There seems to be no limit to the criminal activities of this demorats administration. They all need to be prosecuted and put in jail for years.

    1. Rodney Steward says:

      The reason why the dems are refusing to accept Trump as Prez. they’ve been use to Opey and the Clinton cartel for 8 years, and now that house of cards is slowing falling to the ground!

  • The Redhawk says:

    Oh well … just another “MEMORY LOSS that Follows another Concussion that precedes the Clinton Pathological habit of LIES…what’s one more after all….

  • bobnstuff says:

    A Clinton supported lobbies for a foreign government and doesn’t list it. This is a big deal I guess. Will Trump back away from his dealings with India? Will we hear about the lobbyists visiting Trump? Trump will tell you it’s just business, no big thing. This is just another non-story that the Clinton haters are trying to link to her. Trump won the electoral college and will be President and Clinton will go back to trying to save the world. Why don’t we stop obsessing about Clinton now and move on. Trump will give use more then enough headlines to fill the media.

    1. Webb says:

      Hillary never Saved The World…She Only saved The $Millions$, She Acquired, Directly or Indirectly, from The Tax payer And Foreign Governments…

      1. bobnstuff says:

        Funny, her family runs one of the well respected international foundations that provides about 70% of the AID’s drugs to Africa. People like Bill Gates trusts her with his money. Foreign governments trust her to get their money where it’s most needed. 89% of all money that comes in goes out to where it’s needed. She does all this with her husband and daughter while taking no pay from the foundation. The millions have come from people willing to pay her to speak to them. You can check that that on her tax returns for the last 30 years. Also the only tax payer money she has gotten was a pay check. Instead of believing the words of right wing no nothing talking heads, go do some research. They are a public charity and they get audited. They get an A rating from those that rate these things.

    One of Odumbo’s wonderful administration accomplishments! The “Rule of Law” now applies to only those who don’t suck-up to the Socialists, Liberals, Democrats or Victims! If you are an “Insider” of any type or Party, you can be as big a criminal as the law allows! Kind of sounds like Cuba, don’t you think?

    1. HotinSC says:

      Yet, the alt-left is worried about Trump’s business connections. Hypocrites! I need my coloring book and a safe space :'(

      1. James in Texas says:

        That’s because all members of the “Party” are required to take the “Hypocritical Oath”!

        1. HotinSC says:

          Oh now, that right there is funny, I don’t care who you are. Ahhahaha. 😀

          1. James in Texas says:

    2. McFerguson says:

      Yeah, and let’s throw in the IRS and the DOJ, both of which have been heavily politicized by the Obozo administration. And the obscene joke of the Clintons operating as a crime family in the middle of the government is about as sick as it gets. How’s that for deplorable!

      1. James in Texas says:

        I now hold being “deplorable” in high esteem. Afterall, it was us “Deplorables” that made Mr. Trump the next “Lead Dog”!

        1. bobnstuff says:

          So when you find out it’s all lies will your head explode?

          1. The Redhawk says:

            Probably NOT HIS head …Yours seems to already Have

          2. bobnstuff says:

            I’m in a win win situation here. If Trump proves to be the disaster I fear he will be I’m vindicated and if he pulls it off I get to enjoy a growing economy. I can’t loose. If you bought into the Trump myth and he fails you loose. I can’t loose here.

          3. The Redhawk says:

            SURE! To me the BEST news since the FIRING of the BHO ZO/Clinton FUBAR REGIME is the Election of BOTOX Pelosi to lead the former (D) party to lose more SEATS… I WON TWICE ALREADY!!!

          4. bobnstuff says:

            President Obama is retiring, he wasn’t fired and Clinton didn’t get hired even though she did get more votes. Next up are the mid-terms where the Republicans will lose seats in both the House and the Senate, it has always happened to the party in power. Since the republicans lost seats in this election they most likely lose the Senate and be weaker in the House. If Trump is lucky he has two years to get anything done and that’s only if the Republicans can get their act together. Remember it only takes two never Trump Republicans in the Senate to vote with the Democrats to kill anything. It will be fun to watch.

          5. The Redhawk says:

            “I MAY NOT BE RUNNING BUT MY POLICIES ARE ON THE BALLOT” Spoken by the iDIOT who got FIRED … So Blah Blah blah ain’t gonna DO IT…The FUBAR Idiot LOST O+IT nad Promoted an even worse Candidate to “save his Sorry A -ssed Legacy” and BOTH LOST … Now back to a dark conber and Suck your THUMB…Ta ta . you are Delusionally BORING!

          6. bobnstuff says:

            Over two million more votes for Obama’s policies then against, and much of the ACA staying. Obama’s legacy is safe. Remember that Trump only won the Electoral College not the popular vote. We had the two worst candidates running.

          7. The Redhawk says:

            BUT IN 30 out of 50 ( not Bhozo 57) States TRUMP had an OVERWHELMING POPULAR OMAJORITY … Put that in your FUBAR MIND SET….and find somewhere else to Post STUPID LIES… LET FACTS not BUNCH UP YOUR LACE PANTIES

          8. bobnstuff says:

            When did 1% or 2% become overwhelming? The states that Trump ran up large percentage victories in have more cows then people. For every state that Trump had a large victory there was one that Clinton did the same in. The election came down to three states. Had Clinton won them she would be president. Each of these three states were very close. This wasn’t a bow out for Trump, it was a squeaker. Didn’t you even look at the numbers?

          9. The Redhawk says:

            30 out of 50 States….If you need help doing basic % …you must have gone off the RAILS….we are THE UNITED STATES not the FUBAR Coast lines of IDIOTS…” Had Clinton won” BUT SHE LOST you DIP STICK!! She needed to win STATES not just BIG CITIES…DUHHHHH!!!

          10. bobnstuff says:

            Fool go look at the numbers!!!!!

          11. The Redhawk says:

            Take your own advice DIP STICK….But If NY S and Kaliphornia had voted for Trump … yes “IF” …..would you be using Climate change as an EXCUSE for her LOSS???

          12. The Redhawk says:

            OH that IS rich….politico=Pravda=Al Jezeera= Pelosi= Reid= THE FUBAR PARTY DOCTRINE….Come on Man GET REAL!!

            You are Getting bore BORING by the POST and I rather watch Corn grow… So long A s shole! BYE BYE!

        2. The Redhawk says:

          Oh buddy we could let yhem have Either NE coast line and west coast and we can have the REAL America…NOW i cannot wait for the DING BATS to fly off the Belfry

          1. James in Texas says:

            Nope, we give them nothing! If they want it…….”Come and Take It”! I lived in SoCal for 58 years of my life and I still remember what a wonderful place CA was before these slime’s changed it into something I now despise!

          2. The Redhawk says:

            There is always that wonderful place called Libya or Cuba for these Maggots

          3. James in Texas says:

            Nope, as I see it, within about 4 to 5 years the population of California should be about 100,000,000! And then, with any luck, there will be a magnitude 12 earthquake, which will solve that problem! And, I hope the “few” Conservatives there have already left, to the Right!

          4. The Redhawk says:

            Heck that may be called the Best way to SECEDE after all…. and FAT Alphonse Gore can then speak about that famous ” 25 ft under water” BS and be RIGHT!…..But If Pelosi continues her ways to Reduce House FUBAR progressive Numbers , in two more election cycles 4-6 yer Klaliphornia might just become a GOP Majority of LEGAL VOTERS with may be an Equal number of Illegal voters…( eh eh eh )

          5. James in Texas says:

            Back in the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s and into the early 80’s CA was solid Republican. During the mid-70’s and the Rust-Belt melt-down hit the Steel industry, many folks from those areas moved to CA and brought all of the bad things that caused them to move to the West Coast. Can you say………”Conservative Melt-down”! Now you can count the Conservatives with a small calculator. In this last election the Republican vote equaled about 36% of the total vote.

          6. The Redhawk says:

            Like FL it got Invaded by many NUYAWKAHS, Moon bats and Illegals and got it SCREWED UP

          7. James in Texas says:

            Liberalism is like a disease, it spreads out and destroys everything it touches! I have many friends who I grew-up with in SoCal that now live in Oregon and Washington and they all tell me that their state has been overrun by CA Lib’s and are suffering the same ills as shown in CA.

          8. The Redhawk says:

            Liberalism is the Progressive FUBAR Cancer that seems to be Spreading NATIONWIDE unless We The Peole put a sTOP to this….VOTE EM ALL OUT!!!

          9. James in Texas says:

            That has to be done state by state! I have notified each of my elected Federal reps that I will no longer vote for them if they have been in office more than 8 years! TERM LIMITS, now!

          10. The Redhawk says:

            Amen….two term limits for Senators….four two years term limits for House members…and then have them Live with the same Regulations and SS and Health care as the REST of us!!!

          11. bobnstuff says:

            If we didn’t have all these safe district that are created by gerrymandering we would have turnover in government. Those newly elected members of congress now get pretty much the same benefits as everyone one else does from their employer. That change came about a while back. Cruz had to go onto the exchange to get his insurance.

          12. The Redhawk says:

            A practice done by BOTH parties when in a Majority… so the “IF’s” are BULL CRAP… Holding Elected ‘ hores accountable every Time they come up for Votes is the best TERM LIMITS practice from both parties…

          13. bobnstuff says:

            There aren’t democrats you think have been office to long? If districts were set up so either party could win you wouldn’t have these life long congressmen. My district is set up that a democrat couldn’t win. It’s seventy miles long and in places less then a mile wide. Half the time the democrats don’t even put up a candidate. My neighbors needs are not the same as the folks seventy miles north of here. I want every elect to be hard fought. I want the candidates to have to work for my vote. If we do get someone in who is good at the job I don’t want to have to fire him though. I want a person to represent me not the party. It wasn’t that long ago that congressmen would vote for themselves, not just go along with the party.

          14. James in Texas says:

            I would like to see the terms as 2 terms of 4 years for the Senate and 4 terms of 2 years for the House. DC is so caustic it starts to destroys even good folks within about 4 years! My Congressman was 100% Conservative when first elected, he is now, after 8 years, down to about 65% and sliding!!!!

          15. The Redhawk says:

            With you all the way…I have been with this plan for years…

          16. James in Texas says:

            Way deep in my heart I want the Senate returned to the selection of the states as it was before the “Professional Liars” made it an elected job-for-Life!

          17. The Redhawk says:

            hello… biggest problem like the below idiot (bobnstuff) still have NO idea why We won and They lost is that WE are the WE party and the FUBAR PARTY is all bout”ME” or “I” as Bhozo was

          18. James in Texas says:

            I blocked that dumb-ass long ago. The Left is a lost cause and they will never admit that they ever lost anything! Carry-on, Redhawk…………… We have won and we know it! Odumbo, who was he?

          19. The Redhawk says:

            Hi Bro! may be with Ellison “plan’ for a segregatet ( blacks only and muslim only) Racist State besides Minnesota and iliinois which do you think Ellisojn might angle for?? eh eh eh…and he could have FRANKEN as Pres and Daffy Durbin in charge of the Fubar Congress of the RACIST state of DISARRAY…and Pelosi migt want a KRUDIPHORNIA IDIOTS ONLY State. Eh eh eh…this should give the Idiot (bobnstuff) a case of Heart burn….

          20. James in Texas says:

            Hey, bob-n-whatstuff, maybe he can get Ms. Stool Sample to “splain” to us poor folks how this Odumbocare think works! I know it is much better than Medicare, she told us that back then before we “got to pass it to understand it”, which is the complete description of a “Stool Sample!

          21. The Redhawk says:

            hi my Texas Bro….Bob n “stuff” has so much “STUFF” in his DEPENDS that he must walk nad THINK Slowly as he Drags that ” stuff’ around… kind like ‘WALKING EAGLE SHILLERY..” so fulla crap that could never fLY.

          22. James in Texas says:

            Just think, we will have at least 4 years and possibly 8 to 16 years to walk around with big grin’s on our face. And old b-n-s will be looking for his “safe space”!!!!! Have a Great day and remember, we are also getting “even” with Little Willie for “Her”!

          23. The Redhawk says:

          25. bobnstuff says:

            I guess moving forward isn’t some thing you want. You hate change. That’s what being progressive means, To look it the future. You want to live in the past I guess. You love those words but I fear you don’t understand what they really mean, kind of like swear words to you. You enjoy the benefits of the progressives but don’t want to admit it.

          26. The Redhawk says:

            Actually MY VOTE FOR TRUMP was a VOTE for CHANGE you Ass wipe! Your vote for a professional Corrupted Incompetent LYING OLD HAG was a return to the 80-s Or are you missing something???

    4. The Redhawk says:

      But can we wait to hear BRAYING SCHMUCKIE SCHUMER like the JacKa -ss he is about the “END OF ODUMBOCARE” costing the SENIORS their Medicare Benefits while ” FORGETTING” that it was ODUMBOCARE using BIllions of medicare to fund that About to Derail in flames Fubar Express AKA ODUMBOCARE … Let the games begin on the REBIRTH of the USA on 20 Jan 2017

      1. James in Texas says:

        Hold on now. I know something about the “Mule” and how hard it works. So, be careful about saying bad things about these “hard-working animals”! As for “Chuckie” he can kiss me where the Sun don’t ever shine!!!!!!

        1. The Redhawk says:

          Speaking of “mules” they are LOTS smarter than the Maggot from Brooklyn who had Chosen Anthony WIENER as his possible Successor in the Senate…however Chuckie is more of the BJ persuasion than the “kissing’ persuasion he wants to be UP FRONT! and he Don’work… he just SUCKS

          3. James in Texas says:

            Yep, and our Governor is an all-around great Conservative. And, yea, it needed to be said, and know what, You said it and it probably caused several thousand Liberals to run for their “safe space”!!!! Have a Great day and stay “Loud”!

          4. The Redhawk says:
