While the Democrats and mainstream media continue their relentless attack against President Donald Trump and his administration over alleged ties to Putin and Russia, a bombshell report has surfaced detailing Hillary Clinton’s former campaign manager’s ties to our Russian adversaries.
John Podesta has been serving on the board of a Russian firm since 2011, where he remained throughout Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state. Worse yet, he completely failed to report his position to the government, thus raising serious conflict of interest questions.
More from the Daily Caller:
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 — best known as 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.
Podesta has attempted to downplay his relationship with Joule and Rusnano, but it could come to haunt him.
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.
After Podesta began working at the White House, his lawyer indicated in a Jan. 6, 2014 email that he had not yet finished the legal work on the private transfer of the stock to a family-owned entity called Leonido Holdings, LLC.
According to a report from True Pundit, Podesta, along with Hillary Clinton and her Clinton Foundation, helped the Russian military advance its technology all while collecting millions in “donations” to her charity. This all happened through Rusnano, and it all occurred while Hillary was serving as secretary, yet there’s no FBI investigation and mainstream media is of course silent.
Something isn’t quite right here.

While Democratic lawmakers put on a Russian dog and pony show today on Capitol Hill, complete with fabrications from US Intel chiefs, a confidential report has surfaced illustrating how Hillary Clinton, John Podesta and the Clinton Foundation reaped untold millions from selling favors to Russia while Hillary was secretary of state.
Unlike the nonsensical partisan hearings on The Hill where there is NO proof of President Donald Trump-Russia connections, this report describes in chilling detail how the Clinton cartel traded US resources and political payoffs in exchange for possible hundreds of millions of dollars.
While Democrats and mainstream media continue their unwarranted assault against President Trump, it appears that Hillary and her associates are the ones with ties to Russia that should be under full investigation.
