Podesta Group CEO, Kimberley Fritts, Quits Lobbying Group…

Curiouser and curiouser…  An interesting development amid the various swampy happenings both domestically and internationally.  With Robert Mueller focusing on foreign interest lobbying efforts within Washington DC; and amid Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman confronting corruption within the financing of foreign political influence; Podesta CEO Kimberley Fritts announces she is leaving to form her own firm.

Considering that Mrs. Fritts previously announced her intention of remaining at the Podesta group and rebranding the lobbying firm, sans Tony Podesta, questions arise as to what might have made Fritts change her mind.

(Via Politico) Kimberley Fritts, the longtime chief executive of the Podesta Group, is leaving the firm to start her own lobbying shop, according to three Podesta Group staffers.

Tony Podesta, the firm’s founder, tapped Fritts as his successor when he announced he’d step down as chairman last week, hours after an indictment was unsealed, charging Paul Manafort and his deputy, Rick Gates, with violating foreign lobbying law. The indictment accused Manafort of hiring the Podesta Group to lobby for an ostensibly independent nonprofit that “was under the ultimate direction” of the Ukrainian president, his party and the Ukrainian government.

Fritts had been expected to relaunch the Podesta Group under a new name in the days after Podesta stepped down. But after more than a week of working to hammer out the details of what the new firm would look like, Fritts announced at a staff meeting late this afternoon, that she would resign and start a new firm, exacerbating questions about the future of the Podesta Group and its dozens of employees.  (read more)

    For whatever it’s worth, Bill Mitchell just tweeted “I’m hearing rumors something BIG maybe going down tonight.”

    I might guess that the Podesta Group might have its assets frozen or something similar. So the decision to leave and start a new group is based on Podesta Group having assets frozen. I’m surprised that she didn’t get some swamp goo splattered on her, being so high up in the Podesta Group. She must have known and seen and maybe assisted in some of this corruption.

    “The Storm” could finally be here

      Not that this is an indicator but I was standing in line last Monday morning. A Marshall’s store in Parsippany, NJ and who did I see checking out in front of me? None other than John Podesta. I pulled his picture up and showed it to the guy behind me. He agreed and told me somebody was speaking in that town in a few hours as it was the day before the Governor’s race. His wife was buying like a dozen rolls of Christmas paper (dark garnet with gold accents). I guess they are not too worried. Perhaps she is planning on wrapping a cake with a file in it.

    Why is Podesta still doing business? Why arent they banned from lobbying in DC?
    Why is Sessions still AG?

    There’s nothing left to salvage. Running away from the completely corrupt Podesta enterprise is her only option. Attempting to start a new organization is very possibly an attempt to signal innocence via demonstration of confidence in her own future.

    I am having more and more confidence that their future ain’t looking all that bright.

    What if the swamp hired Mueller to minimize the damage? Obama faction of dems hate Hillary and considers her dead weight for their advance. If Hillary and Co. found guilty, they can still blame on Trump and take over dem party for 2020.

      You can’t get near Clinton nor her associates without getting corrupoo all over you. All stink leads back to Obama and the rest of his gangster crew.

      If it was to be a surgical separation of Killary from The One, the cancer has metastisized. It’s terminal.

        Not to say Zero was ever anything less than dirty. Just that Hillary’s corruptpoo is the rats nest of innumerable black powder fuses connected to Obama. He will mot escape.

        I am still hoping to see his Birth Certificate. School records. The sources of his funding and his puppet masters. I want Eight Years of Executive Order Hell and UnConstitutional Legislation bearing his signature INVALIDATED ERASED REVERSED.

        What part of inelligible don’t you people understand?

    The RATS 🐀 are all scurrying away before the Hammer 🔨 drops on Tony Podesta and his minions. We are getting closer and closer to the day that will be watched all around the world! It will be absolutely amazing! Unlike Saudi Arabia 🇸🇦, these bastards are going to prison instead of a fancy hotel!

    I’d guess that Podesta and Fritts couldn’t come to an agreement on buyout price (Podesta wanted a boatload and Fritts wouldn’t pay because why should she if she can just walk and recreate everything), so Fritts walked.

    Now why is she allowed to walk away? No. This is a diversion tactic for the records. The Postal Inspector and the Treasury needs to shut them down, chain the doors and seize all the records.

      I wonder if the judge swap today is due to Republicans grabbing the same side of the coin? Maybe they were able to switch this back to their cover, rather than Hillary’s
      cover.
