Podesta's brother Tony Podesta walked away from the Podesta Group as the lobbying group comes under scrutiny for its connections to former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort's shady Russian business deals.
On Monday, the world watched as Manafort and Gates turned themselves in to the team led by former FBI Director Robert Mueller and that Papadopolous had pleaded guilty to lying to FBI investigators, but it also learned that Podesta, a Democrat, stepped down from his lobbying firm the Podesta Group after being drawn into the investigation by the counsel as well.
