Podesta and the Clintons up to their eyeballs in Russian money

(Before It's News)

Now that John Podesta has become center stage in the latest drops from wiki Leaks, knowing what we now know about him, I thought I would give you a repeat of an earlier post. While the Clinton machine keeps spinning that Trump is in bed with the Russians rather it it they who are up to their eyeballs. Including one John Podesta. Here it is:

What is becoming apparent is that there are few connected with the Clinton money machine who are not enjoying the fruits of the Clintons. This story tells us how John Podesta made out collecting big bucks with Russia while no doubt selling our technology down the drain. But the Clintons are well-known for a penchant for selling out technology. Bill loved to do deals with China, looks like Hillary and her cohorts look toward Russia. First this, and then on to Podesta. We have this gem:

A Moscow-based technology initiative funded in part by the Russian government funneled tens of millions of dollars into the Clinton Foundation while Hillary Clinton was serving as secretary of state, according to a new report released Monday.

As President Obama’s top diplomat, Clinton oversaw and facilitated the State Department’s failed five-year project to “reset” U.S.-Russia relations, which spurred the creation of Skolkovo, a research facility known as Russia’s version of Silicon Valley,Clinton Cash author Peter Schweizer wrote in a new report, titled “From Russia with Money.”

But I digressed:

A bombshell report released Sunday by the non-partisan Government Accountability Institute (GAI) revealed that John Podesta, Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, developed undisclosed relationships with a Putin-connected Russian government fund.

Podesta served on the executive board of an energy company called Joule Unlimited, which received $35 million from a Kremlin-connected entity.

Podesta was on the executive board of an energy company which received $35 million from a Kremlin-connected entity.

The energy company was part of a “Russian reset” program, which then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton helped initiate. The program was designed to build an “innovation city” called Skolkovo, a Russian equivalent to the U.S.’s Silicon Valley. Critics of the initiative, including the FBI, warned that the Russian government would use Skolkovo to gain access to technology and information that would help build up their military.

The GAI report says “Two months after Podesta joined the board, Vladimir Putin’s Rusnano announced that it would invest up to 1 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.”

Rusnano is a government-owned joint-stock company that was founded by Vladimir Putin in 2007.

It is unclear why Podesta failed to disclose reveal his membership on the board of one of the Joule entities, even though it was required by law. The revelation of Podesta’s secret relationship with Kremlin-connected entities, however, only raises more questions about the transparency and trustworthiness of the Clinton campaign — and casts into doubt the Democratic effort to paint Clinton’s opponent as too cozy with Russia.

  • The bitch gave Russia 25% of American Uranium A year ago.

    • The Uranium One purchase by Russians began in 2009 and was completed in 2013. (2009-2013 are the years Clinton was Secretary of State)

      Approval of the “Committee on Foreign Investments in the United States” was required, and Clinton was both a member of that, and senior cabinet officer. She could have asked the President to block the sale and did not do so.

      Through a foundation, Ian Telfer, chairman of the Russian company (Rosatom) gave the Clinton Foundation 2.35 million dollars.

      That is the foundation that spent 6% of its income on charitable grants in 2013. Nine million dollars out of 140 million in income. (30 million was payroll, 9.2 million was conferences, 8.5 was travel…)

      And in 2010, Clinton’s husband Bill was paid 500,000 dollars by a Russian investment bank. For a speech, we’re told.

      The result of this bribery was that 20% of American uranium production is controlled by Russians.

      • Wait, there’s more! The 2.35 million “donation” from the chairman of Rosatom was one of over 1,000 that was NOT listed in the published list of Clinton Foundation donors.
