Mueller's Dem Targets Under Fire
 
Special Counsel Robert Mueller has also discovered Dem wrongdoing during his investigation. Earlier this year the special counsel referred two Democrat to authorities because their wrongdoings fell outside of his scope. The investigations into them, one a Clinton linked lobbyist, and the other an Obama staffer are apparently heating up.

According to Fox News:

An investigation referred to Justice Department prosecutors by Special Counsel Robert Mueller earlier this year into possible criminal activity by Clinton-linked Washington insider Tony Podesta and former Obama White House Counsel Greg Craig is heating up, according to a new report that underscores federal authorities' increasing enforcement of laws governing foreign business relationships.

The inquiries center not only on Craig and Podesta -- a Democratic lobbyist and co-founder of the onetime lobbying powerhouse known as the Podesta Group -- but also on Vin Weber, a former GOP congressman from Minnesota.

The probes had been quiet for months since Mueller referred them to authorities in New York City because they fell outside his mandate of determining whether the Trump campaign coordinated with Russia.

But in a flurry of new activity, Justice Department prosecutors in the last several weeks have begun interviewing witnesses and contacting lawyers to schedule additional questioning related to the Podesta Group and Mercury Public Affairs, people familiar with the inquiry anonymously told the Associated Press.

The Mueller probe went far beyond the question of collusion and it appears even some Dems got caught up in it.
