Is Mueller Now Looking at Obama Admin Officials?

Special Counsel Robert Mueller referred criminal investigations into major Democratic operatives to the Southern District of New York, CNN reported on Tuesday.

The investigation into lobbyist Tony Podesta and former Obama White House Counsel Greg Craig will look at their foreign contacts.

CNN speculated that the SDNY would probe their connections to Ukraine:

None of the entities involved have been charged with wrongdoing, and there is no indication the SDNY inquiry will result in criminal charges.

It’s not clear whether they are considered one case or separate matters, these people said, though all involve inquiries into whether the men improperly performed work on behalf of groups associated with Ukraine without registering with the Justice Department as foreign agents.

The trial of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort began Tuesday, as Mueller charged the former lobbyist with crimes related to his work with Ukraine.

Now, after the referral, it’s possible a former Obama official will suffer a similar indictment.
