John Podesta: I Am Victim of 'Big Lie Campaign' by Trump

"He and his brother could Drain The Swamp, which would be yet another campaign promise fulfilled", he wrote.

John Podesta, Hillary Clinton's former campaign chairman, testified in the House Russia investigation but is unaffiliated with the Podesta Group.

John Podesta's emails were among those leaked by Russian hackers following their entry into the servers of the Democratic National Committee in October 2016.

A representative for the Podesta Group said the firm initially did not disclose its work with the ECMU to the FARA officials because the nonprofit "had certified that it was neither funded nor directed by a foreign government or political party", according to NBC News. Tony Podesta co-founded the firm with his brother John Podesta, who would become Clinton's campaign manager for the 2016 election. Podesta's company was one of many firms that worked on the campaign, which promoted Ukraine's image in the West. Is this controversy as big a deal as Trump says it is? The ECMU, however, was in fact supported by the Party of Regions, the pro-Russia political party of the ousted Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych, for whom Manafort lobbied in the US.

Last week, three sources told NBC News that Tony Podesta and the Podesta Group had fallen under the purview of Mueller's investigation, due to their connections to Manafort's finances. Carlson also reported that Manafort's company, the European Center for a Modern Ukraine, was a major client of the Podesta group.

The resignation of high-powered Democratic lobbyist Tony Podesta from the firm bearing his name follows a string of failures by him to disclose his advocacy for foreign entities that put him under the microscope of special prosecutor Robert Mueller.

On Monday, Fox News host Tucker Carlson said Tony Podesta's lawyer Geoff Garinther with Venable LLP, demanded the show "immediately cease and desist disseminating false and misleading reports about Mr. Podesta and 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", the company said in a statement. It subsequently amended its required filings.

Politico reports that Manafort organized a public relations campaign for a nonprofit organization called the European Centre for a Modern Ukraine (ECFMU) which benefited from a political party in Ukraine that Manafort once advised. The Podesta Group's work for ECFMU, a non profit think tank, was in support of Ukraine's admission to the European Union, a position supported by foreign policy experts at the time.
