Lobbying firm, the Podesta Group, will be shutting down thanks to Robert Mueller and the Russian probe case. 

The Podesta Group's chief executive,  Kimberley Fritts, announced to employees Thursday that the firm would not exist by the end of the year. She also said that they would likely not be paid through November. 

At the time when Podesta left the firm because of ties to indictments filed in the Russia investigation, Fritts announced her resignation. 

The Podesta Group was hired by  former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and his business partner Richard Gates, who are accused of  laundering their profits to avoid U.S. detection working for a pro-Russia Ukrainian political party.

The two men pleaded not guilty to not properly registering as foreign agents for their consulting work with the Ukrainian groups, and now the Podesta Group in under scrutiny. 

Hope is not lost for the top Washington lobbying group. Fritts is in the process of starting a new firm that would be up and running in a matter of weeks, utilizing the talents and clients from the collapsing Podesta Group. 

Employees spoke out and said the mood at the firm is optimistic and that with the new firm in sight, most employees will only be in limbo for a short period of time.

Way to push through the Trump storm!
