Tony Podesta threatened Fox News host Tucker Carlson after he revealed last week that Podesta is a "central figure" in Special Counsel Robert Mueller's "Russian interference" investigation.
Tucker Carlson tweeted:
“Tony Podesta threatened “Tucker Carlson Tonight” after resigning. Wanted our reporting shutdown.”

It's been reported by Daily Caller that "Tucker Carlson Tonight" received a cease and desist letter from Tony Podesta's lawyer.
Remember Carlson dropped a bombshell last week when he reported that Podesta has emerged as a key figure under investigation by Robert Mueller.

Per Fox News:
A thus-far-reliable source who used to be involved with Clinton allies John and Tony Podesta told Tucker Carlson that press reports appearing to implicate President Trump in Russian collusion are exaggerated.
The source, who Carlson said he would not yet name, said he worked for the brothers’ Podesta Group and was privy to some information from Robert Mueller’s special investigation.
While media reports describe former “Black, Manafort & Stone” principal Paul Manafort as Trump’s main tie to the investigation, the source said it is Manafort’s role as a liaison between Russia and the Podesta Group that is drawing the scrutiny.
The “vehicle” Manafort worked for was what Carlson called a “sham” company with a headquarters listed in Belgium but whose contact information was linked to Kiev, the Ukrainian capital.
Per The Gateway Pundit:
As The Gateway Pundit’s Cristina Laila previously reported, Tucker’s source said the Russians were deeply involved in American politics but the real story has nothing to do with the 2016 presidential campaign. The source told Tucker that Manafort worked for the Podesta Group on behalf of Russian interests. In fact, Manafort was seen inside of the Podesta Group’s office all the time.
The sources also told Tucker Carlson that Tony Podesta was in constant contact with then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. In fact, Tony Podesta was so close to Hillary that he was considered a part of the Clinton Foundation.
According to NBC News sources, the Podesta Group is one of the two companies directly linked to Paul Manafort’s indictment in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s ‘Russian interference’ investigation.
