Tables Have Turned: Mueller Probe To Take Down Top Obama-Linked Lawyer

Special Counsel Robert Mueller may be looking to take down a high-profile Democrat lawyer who previously worked for former President Obama. The attorney may soon be charged for violating the Foreign Agents Registration Act, BizPac Review reports.

Special Counsel Mueller’s investigative team charged former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort for violating the same statute.

From the report:

Attorney Gregory B. Craig, who served as Obama’s White House Counsel from 2009 to 2010 and as then-President Bill Clinton’s director of policy planning from 1997 to 1998, never disclosed work he’d performed in 2012 on behalf of then-Ukrainian President Viktor F. Yanukovych, who as of 2019 is currently in exile in Russia and wanted by the Ukrainian government for treason.

While a partner at the law firm Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom, Craig was hired by Manafort to write a report on Yanukovych’s behalf.

According to the report, Craig was subsequently paid more than $5.2 million between 2012 and 2013. Most of that money was from a Ukrainian oligarch.

BizPac Review reports this matter was previously investigated by former Attorney General Loretta Lynch…

“Craig and his partners at Skadden Arps performed this work without registering as foreign agents under FARA. While the Justice Department of then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch briefly looked into the matter in 2013, it dropped the issue in 2014 after Craig, an associate of Obama, argued that his work for Yanukovych didn’t apply to FARA.”

…That is, until Mueller dug it back up when they investigated Manafort for alleged wrongdoings.

After finding the violations, the Mueller team sent the Skadden Arps case to federal prosecutors in Manhattan, who then sent them down to federal prosecutors in Washington.

From the report:

These same prosecutors wound up reaching a settlement with the law firm. Skadden Arps agreed to register retroactively with the Justice Department as a foreign agent of Ukraine and to pay a $4.6 million fine, the same amount that the firm was paid for its consulting work.

Moreover, Skadden Arps reportedly threw Craig under the bus.

While Craig could be charged, BizPac Review reports preferential treatment is seemingly granted to Democrat entities in these manners:

It’s unclear why the D.C.-based FARA team, which is reportedly being led by one of Mueller’s former associates in the Russia investigation, Brandon L. Van Grack, is having such apparent difficulty deciding whether or not to prosecute Craig.

Federal prosecutors’ aggressive actions against Manafort demonstrated that they certainly have no qualms about reigning in Republican operatives. The former Trump campaign chairman was tarred, feathered and fed to the wolves for his violations of the FARA act. His home was likewise raided. So were the homes of the president’s former attorney Michael Cohen and his former campaign adviser Roger Stone.
