Not Trump…but Hillary's Ties to Russia

The Democrats spent all of their time during the 2016 Presidential Election accusing Trump of being in bed with Putin, and crying out that the Russians were influencing the American election.  I found that to be an odd stance, and one the American people would not buy into because common sense dictated that the Russians would prefer a Democrat in office.  After all, it is the Democrats who believe in a weaker national defense, and it was under Obama that Putin received the free gifts of invading Crimea and Ukraine without even a hint of worry of any repercussions from the United States.  The “Trump’s Ties to Russia” accusation was just a Democrat ploy to try and make Donald Trump look bad because they had no winning argument in the arena of ideas, and falsely accusing Trump of being a racist and sexist was not working as well as the Democrats had hoped.

Reality dictates that if anyone had ties to Russia, it would have been Hillary Clinton.

Were the Democrats projecting?

Wikileaks has largely focused on the emails of John Podesta, Hillary’s campaign chair, and according to Julian Assange’s releases, one leak ties Podesta directly to an energy company called “Joule Unlimited.”  The company has received millions from a Putin-connected Russian government fund, and 75,000 shares of Joule Unlimited stock has been transferred to John Podesta’s daughter, Megan Rouse.

Breitbart reported that Podesta’s assistant, Eryn Sepp, wrote to him, “Full transfer request, with Megan’s signature attached.”

Flashback now to January 3, 2014, and a letter indicating that Podesta designated his daughter’s residence in Dublin, California as the address for Leonidio Holdings LLC, the Delaware-based holding company used by Podesta to transfer his shares in Russian-related Joule Global Holdings.

Podesta’s daughter, Megan Rouse, is listed as a “managing member” of Leonidio Holdings LLC, according to financial documents.

Podesta is also a member of the board of directors of Joule Unlimited. He joined the board in June of 2011.

“Two months after Podesta joined the board, Vladimir Putin’s Rusnano announced that it would invest up to one billion rubles into Joule Unlimited, which amounts to $35 million. That represents one-fifth of the entire amount of investment dollars Joule collected from 2007 to 2013,” the GAI report concludes.

Podesta also failed to disclose fully his position on Joule Unlimited’s board of directors and to include it in his federal financial disclosures, as required by law, before he became President Barack Obama’s senior adviser in January 2014.

So, who’s in bed with Russia and Putin?

    Trump married a Russian whore, of course he has ties. Did Russia MK effects tap into the electoral college decision or not. If so he stoled the election.
