How Robert Mueller has ignored and failed to prosecute money laundering and conspiracy charges against Tony Podesta and Glenn Simpson.
It starts with Manafort.

The scope of Mueller's authority covers these three men, all guilty of FARA (Foreign Agent Registration Act) violations.

1. Glenn Simpson
2. Tony Podesta
3. Paul Manafort

Only 1 of them is being prosecuted.
The Simpson FARA violations are well documented. He was hired by Russia to lobby Congress to repeal the Magnitsky Act.

He never submitted a FARA filing.
The Podesta Group failed to submit FARA registrations (for its Ukraine work). It since registered - with no criminal penalty.
Per this 3/2/2018 LA Times report, dozens of lobbying firms are now registering as foreign agents. But the crimes already took place.

Dozens of firms, yet Manafort is the only individual prosecuted.
In fact, FARA has essentially been a dead criminal law since the 1960s, as administrative remedies took favor.

There have been ZERO successful FARA prosecutions since 1966 - including the time Mueller was FBI Director.
Now Mueller has had a change of heart.

Mueller's team is arguing to the court that the FARA violation is so serious that Manafort should be subjected to criminal penalties for FARA-related conspiracy and money laundering charges.
Thus, by the Special Counsel's own logic:

Tony Podesta and Glenn Simpson are just as guilty for the money laundering and conspiracy violations for the millions they've made in unregistered foreign lobbying.

And they will escape prosecution because Mueller doesn't give a shit.
