Donald Trump is going on offense.

The President is taking the fight to Robert Mueller after months of trying to appease the special counsel.

As part of his counterattack, the President fired off one tweet that could send a top Democrat to jail.

Trump supporters are outraged at the double standard at play in the witch hunt against the President.

Hillary Clinton was treated with kid gloves in an investigation the FBI appears to have tanked.

Meanwhile, Trump associates have had their homes and offices broken into by armed federal agents as part of Mueller’s fishing expedition.

But the most glaring example of the double standard is Paul Manafort being indicted for financial crimes as part of his dealings with Russia, meanwhile Tony Podesta – brother of Clinton campaign chairman Jon Podesta – skates by despite his lobbying firm being investigated by the special counsel.

Trump pointed this out in a tweet and wondered if it was because the swamp protects its own and Podesta is a card carrying member of the establishment.

Podesta closed down his lobbying firm after his shady dealings with the Russians became public.

Fox News reports:

In October, reports emerged that Mueller was investigating the Podesta Group over its lobbying work on behalf of a nonprofit group called the European Centre for a Modern Ukraine (ECMU). According to the special counsel’s indictment of former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort and associate Rick Gates, the Brussels-based ECMU functioned as a “mouthpiece” for Viktor Yanukovych, Ukraine’s pro-Russian president between 2010 and 2014.

The indictment went on to allege that Manafort and Gates enlisted the Podesta Group and one other firm to lobby on behalf of the ECMU — the “nominal client,” in the words of the indictment — so that Manafort and Gates could continue their work on Yanukovych’s behalf without making the required legal disclosures to the Justice Department.

The indictment alleged that the Podesta Group was not paid directly by the ECMU, but rather through offshore bank accounts controlled by Manafort and Gates. It also claimed that Gates gave the Podesta Group false talking points in order to cover his and Manafort’s tracks about their work for Yanukovych and ECMU.

Podesta’s group is connected to the work in Ukraine that resulted in charges against Trump campaign aides Paul Manafort and Rick Gates.

Fox News also reports:

According to the Center for Responsive Politics, the ECMU paid the Podesta Group $1.02 million over 2012 and 2013 for its work.

Tony Podesta’s name is not mentioned in the indictments of Manafort and Gates and it is not clear what, if anything, he knew about their work for the ECMU and Yanukovych. However, former Podesta Group staffers told ABC News they were skeptical about their prospective client.

“There was a lot of suspicion that it was a front for bad stuff,” one ex-staffer said. Another said workers were concerned Podesta was bringing in “clients you wouldn’t want to touch with a 100-foot pole.”

Will Trump’s renewing the focus on this obvious double standard result in Podesta going to prison?
