More trouble for the Clinton campaign?
Clinton campaign chief linked to Russian bank listed in Panama PapersThis could be a problem for Democrats who like to demagogue about tax shelters as they did with Romney four years ago.
Registration forms indicate that the Podesta Group signed up to lobby for the Sberbank of Russia in Washington about a month ago, in early March. The bank has been implicated in a scheme unearthed on Sunday in which leaders worldwide illegally stashed their assets overseas.
The Podesta Group was founded by John Podesta, the chairman of Clinton's 2016 campaign for president and a chief of staff to former president Bill Clinton. His brother, Anthony Podesta, is listed as a lobbyist for the account on the March filing.
