Another casualty of the indictments. Podesta's problem is that he may not have known where the work was funded. I'm familiar with this kind of action. Doing work for a PR firm in San Antonio, I was asked to target some particular issues against San Antonio City Hall. The work didn't seem very ethical, so I did some digging and found the funding source. It was a hit job by the local police union against the city who was renegotiating their contract. I parted ways with the firm.
...
Manafort and Gates were apparently pulling the strings without telling the Podesta Group who was funding the activities. But of course, those details mean nothing when you're a news organization trying to protect the president and other right wingers.
