For all the garbage the Democrats are spewing about Trump and the GOP’s ties to the Russians, which still has zero evidence behind it, there sure is a lot of evidence mounting saying the Dems are the ones with the Russian love fest. And once again, it’s John Podesta and his team that are the ones under fire. Podesta famously had his emails hacked and tons of sensitive information was leaked to the public.
Information is still pouring out from that and now we’ve learned that Podesta himself was a board member Of firms linked to Russian investors. His goose is pretty much cooked on this one.
Rep. Louie Gohmert, an outspoken House Republican from Texas, is calling for a congressional investigation of John Podesta’s role with Rusnano, a state-run company founded by Russian President Vladimir Putin, The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group has learned. Podesta — Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign chairman and former President Bill Clinton’s White House chief of staff — first made contact with the Russian firm in 2011, when he joined the boards and executive committees of three related entities: Boston-based Joule Unlimited; Rotterdam-based Joule Global Holdings; Joule Global Stichting, the company’s controlling interest. All are high-tech renewable energy enterprises.
Three months after Podesta’s arrival, Joule Unlimited accepted a 1 billion ruble investment from Rusnano, amounting to $35 million in U.S. currency. The firm also awarded a Joule board seat in February 2012 to Anatoly Chubais, Rusnano’s CEO, who has been depicted as a corrupt figure.
Oh how the tables have turned.
One potential legal problem for him relates to the time he joined former President Barack Obama’s White House staff in 2014 as a senior counselor and failed to reveal his 2011 Joule stock vesting agreement in his government financial disclosure form. Further, he failed to disclose 75,000 common shares of Joule stock he received, as disclosed in a WikiLeaks email. The Podesta-Russia connection also could rekindle a new round of questions about Clinton relationships with foreign figures — in this case, Chubais.
Not only could Podesta and many Democrats be in trouble here, but also Hillary and the Clintons? Oh this is too good! Let’s show the world that the DEMS are the ones with the shady Russian ties.
SHARE. THIS. EVERYWHERE!
