While John Podesta used to be involved in lobbying, he is not affiliated with the Podesta Group.

On Monday, Fox News host Tucker Carlson said Tony Podesta's lawyer Geoff Garinther with Venable LLP, demanded the show "immediately cease and desist disseminating false and misleading reports about Mr. Podesta and the Podesta Group".

Podesta, who in July told the president to "get a grip," appeared to be responding to Trump's accusations against him and his brother, Tony Podesta, on Twitter earlier Tuesday morning.

Before becoming a lobbyist, he worked on presidential campaigns of Eugene McCarthy, George McGovern, Edward M. Kennedy, Walter Mondale, Michael Dukakis and Bill Clinton, the Times also noted.
