Ex-Obama White house Councel indicted for false statements

Greg Craig, who once served as White House counsel for then-President Barack Obama, was indicted on Thursday on two counts of making false and misleading statements to investigators in connection with his work on behalf of Russia-backed former president of Ukraine, Viktor Yanukovych.

Wonder if this is what Obama meant when he said he would have more flexability after the election. Wonder how far deep this could go.

And I love this part:

Craig’s attorneys on Wednesday night told The Associated Press in a statement that the “government’s stubborn insistence on prosecuting Mr. Craig is a misguided abuse of prosecutorial discretion.”

On Thursday, the attorneys, William W. Taylor III and William Murphy, told reporters: “Mr. Craig is not guilty of any charge."

Fed prosocutors were kinda painted into a corner on this one:

FARA violations were only rarely prosecuted until Mueller took aim at Manafort for his own lobbying work in Ukraine. Manafort, who counted Yanukovych as one of his most lucrative clients, has been convicted on numerous bank and tax fraud charges, and was separately accused of FARA violations as well.

Manafort would have a huge out if he was charged, but this other guy working with him wasn’t.

Did lie for Obama?

Did Manafort when he was hit with the same charges under the act?

working for a dictator tend to lead to prison.


You are joking right… Dont try to even bring obama into this… I like you Snow i think you are a decent person but this… Come on man


So this happened after he stopped working for obama…

As opposed to working for a dictator/ criminal then working for trump…


This really has nothing to do with Obama but clickbait titles get more money $$$

Obama is getting scared. It will really make libs mad when he’s sitting in jail.

Bring Obama into what? Was he or wasn’t he white house counsel?

What did manaforts worth then have to to with Trump?

He was but like someone posted he was not working for Obama when he lied… Nothing but click bait

It’s fox.

Not the only obama era scumbag doing illegal things.

Just wait.

Did this Craig’s potential criminal activity come before, during, or after his tenure working for Obummer?

Obama keeps company with some shady characters.

No further indictments.

It’s a long way from heeeeeeere to Obama. But knock yourselves out.

Did manaforts come before, during, or after his time with trump?

Mueller didn’t issue this indictment. Barr’s letter said no pending inductment from Mueller or sealed inductments from Mueller.

Mueller did the appropriate thing, and passed these alleged crimes out to the real world.

You really wonder this? Really?
