TONY PODESTA RESIGNS AS MUELLER CLOSES IN ON CLINTON CIRCLE Special Counsel Mueller has been investigating Podesta as part of larger probe into 2016 presidential election

Washington D.C. lobbyist Tony Podesta, the brother of Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta, resigned from his firm Monday. The move comes after it was revealed last week Special Counsel Robert Mueller has been investigating him as part of the larger probe into the 2016 presidential election. His departure also comes on the same day former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort surrendered to the FBI on 12-felony charges surrounding his personal business dealings. From POLITICO:
