Former Obama WH counsel Greg Craig indicted in charges connected to Mueller probe

Washington (CNN)A federal grand jury on Thursday indicted Greg Craig, a prominent Democratic attorney who worked for two presidents, charging him with false statements and concealing material information in connection with work he performed for Ukraine.

An indictment in the case against Craig, which originated in special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation, has been expected for several weeks, with Craig's own lawyers saying Wednesday they anticipated such an outcome.

Craig, 74, is the highest-profile Democrat to be indicted in a matter stemming from Mueller's work, which resulted in charges against numerous Republicans connected to President Donald Trump. The case is being handled by the US Attorney's office for the District of Columbia in connection with the Justice Department's national security division.

The case is likely to bring renewed attention to the Justice Department's application of a once-obscure law applying to unregistered foreign agents.

The charges against Craig, who was White House counsel during the Obama administration, concern work he performed for Ukraine in 2012 while he was a partner at top law firm Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP. The Justice Department has said it was Paul Manafort, who later became Trump's campaign manager, who arranged to hire Skadden to work for Ukraine.

The issue that has been under examination has to do with contact Craig made in late 2012 with several newspaper reporters at the time of the public release of a report he had written for Skadden's client, the Ukranian Ministry of Justice, on the trial of Yulia Tymoshenko, a former prime minister of Ukraine.

Prosecutors examined whether Craig had contacted reporters on behalf of Ukraine to distribute the report to them and whether he had subsequently provided false information to the Justice Department's Foreign Agents Registration Act unit when he met with representatives from the unit in October 2013.

I thought "The Mueller probe is concluded and without any more indictments, and therefore Trump is in the clear." That was the Republican talking point a couple weeks ago when the "final" report was delivered to Trump's hand-picked AG and refused to Congress. Now we are getting more indictments? About Russian involvement with the White House?

The Russians got to Obama, and the same Russians got to Trump, apparently.

Russian collusion, hidden by Barr.
Because the deal was, you hide yours, I'll hide Trump's.
Or something like that.

Trump colluded with the Russians, and HERE is the beginning of the
evidence that we KNOW is there.


Shit, I should write talking points for the Democrats,
rather than just being a comedian on an obscure web site.

The captcha I got was "WMD 7u". Boom!

Just the first ibn a long line of actual colluders, rising to the very top.

Remember when Obama bragged that none of his staffers ever was indicted? Not anymore, Barry. Be afraid.
