The former Obama White House counsel has been charged from information discovered in the Mueller probe. Breitbart reports:
Former Obama White House counsel Gregory Craig was indicted Thursday on false statement charges stemming from a foreign lobbying investigation into his work on behalf of Ukraine.
Prosecutors say the 74-year-old Craig hide “material facts” and lied to U.S. officials. Craig, a high-profile attorney, served as President Bill Clinton’s defense counsel and as counsel in then-President Barack Obama’s White House. The development comes after lawyers for the former White House counsel said Wednesday they expected him to face federal charges in coming days linked to jailed lobbyist Paul Manafort, the Wall Street Journal and Washington Post reported.
Craig resigned in April 2018 amid a probe into whether the firm failed to register as foreign lobbyists for his work in 2012.
Skadden in January reached a settlement with the justice department, admitting it should have registered, and agreed to turn over the fees it had earned in exchange for facing no criminal charges.
This is good news, as the Mueller probe was seen as essentially one sided, ignoring the misdeeds of deep state agents and Obama officials.
