Tony Podesta, the brother of Clinton campaign manager John Podesta, has reportedly been offered immunity by special counsel Robert Mueller to testify against former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort, according to Fox‘s Tucker Carlson.
Manafort and Podesta both made millions together as unregistered agents on a pro-Russia project in Ukraine. While Podesta had the uncanny foresight to retroactively file as a foreign agent last April, Manafort did not, and is currently on trial for his failure to register under the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA) – created decades ago to curb Nazi propaganda in the US, as part of a 12-count indictment handed down last October.

One week after Mueller announced he was targeting Manafort and an unnamed “Company B” in October, Podesta resigned from his position as chairman of the Podesta Group, which he co-founded with his brother Tony in 1988.
