Tony Podesta, founder of the now-shuttered Podesta Group and brother to former Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta, has been offered immunity by special counsel Robert Mueller to testify against former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort, according to a report.
Fox News’ Tucker Carlson announced on his show Thursday evening that two separate sources confirmed the offer. . . .
The special counsel’s office did not immediately return a request for comment.
Mueller is offering immunity to five potential witnesses in the upcoming trial of Manafort. Mueller’s team is asking for “use immunity,” which is a limited type of immunity, according to court documents filed Tuesday. The five people have not been charged or identified publicly with the case, prosecutors for Mueller’s team said.
