Former top Obama aide expects to be indicted in a case connected to the Mueller probe

Gregory Craig, who worked as the White House counsel under former President Barack Obama, expects to be indicted by federal prosecutors in connection to lobbying work he did for the Ukrainian government in 2012, his lawyers told The Washington Post.

Craig worked with Paul Manafort, the former chairman of President Donald Trump’s campaign, on the lobbying work on behalf of the Ukrainian Ministry of Justice in 2012. At the time, The Post reported, Craig was a partner at Sadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom.

According to his lawyers, Craig expects to be indicted by the US attorney’s office in Washington, DC, at the request of the Justice Department’s national security division. The case stemmed from the special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russia’s interference in the 2016 US election.
