Real Russian Influence in American Politics! John Podesta Received $35 Million from Russia While Working for Hillary

Peter Schweitzer, the author of Clinton Cash, says that John Podesta, the former national campaign chairman for Hillary Clinton 2016, may have violated federal law by failing to disclose the receipt of 75,000 shares of stock from Joule Energy, a Kremlin-financed company, when he joined the Obama White House in 2014.  The Russian government invested in Podesta’s business in 2011, while he was an advisor to Hillary Clinton at the State Department.  In addition,  Podesta became a special counselor to Barack Obama, a post that requires financial disclosures every year, but he failed to disclose his shares of stock in Joule, which was funded in part by the Russian government. -GEG

John Podesta, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s 2016 national campaign chairman, may have violated federal law by failing to disclose the receipt of 75,000 shares of stock from a Kremlin-financed company when he joined the Obama White House in 2014.

The outlet also states that Podesta appears to be linked to a $35 million transaction between a Kremlin-funded company and a company he sat on the board of.

Making these claims is none other than Breitbart editor Peter Schweizer – the author of “Clinton Cash.”

Speaking on Fox & Friends this morning, Schweizer said the following:

In 2011, John Podesta joins the board of this very small energy company called Joule Energy based out of Massachusetts. About two months after he joins the board of a Russian entity called Rusnano, puts a billion rubles which is about 35-million-dollars into John Podesta’s company.

Now, what is Rusnano? It’s not a private company. It is directly funded by the Kremlin. In fact, the Russian science minister called Rusnano Putin’s child.

So, you have the Russian government investing in one John Podesta’s business in 2011, while he is an advisor to Hillary Clinton at the State Department.

It gets deeper.

Schweizer went on to point out that Podesta went to the White House in 2013 “to be a special counselor to Barack Obama.”

He said:

That requires that you have financial disclosures every year. In his financial disclosure form in 2013, [Podesta] not only fails to disclose these 75,000 shares of stock that he has in Joule Energy which is funded in part by the Russian government.

He also fails to disclose that he is on one of the three corporate boards that this entity has. It’s got this very complex ownership structure.

He discloses he is on the company in Massachusetts, that he is on the board of a company in the Netherlands, but he fails to disclose that he is also on the executive order of the holding company.

When will the Congress acknowledge this Obama treason

At least this is enough money to actually have some influence somewhere. The current investigation into Google, Facebook and Twitter for ad campaigns from Russia that amounted to a few hundred thousand dollars, is a joke for anyone who knows anything about media budgets. That amount of money spent on social media is much less than meaningless. Amid the hundreds of millions of dollars being spent on traditional media during a political campaign, a few hundred thousand dollars is nothing. Yet traditional media is chasing this story pumping it up like some grand treason was committed against liberty in the… Read more »
