Alleged Pedo Pimp John Podesta Facing Jail for Lying About Holding 75,000 Russian Bank Shares (Video)

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


(N.Morgan) In a stunning discovery it has been uncovered that Former Clinton campaign manager and possible Pedo Pimp, John Podesta, may be facing jail time for breaking federal law by covering up the fact he owned tens of thousands of shares in a Russian bank.

By neglecting to declare the 75,000 Kremlin-backed stock shares before joining Obama’s White House as a special counsellor, Podesta broke federal law.

His fate is now in the hands of AG Jeff Sessions.

Title 5 of the U.S. Code stipulates the Attorney General can file a civil action, “against any individual who knowingly and willfully falsifies or who knowingly and willfully fails to file or report any information that such individual is required to report.”

As reported by the Daily Caller: Joule Unlimited Technologies — financed in part by a Russian firm — originally awarded Podesta 100,000 shares of stock options when in 2010 he joined that board along with its Dutch-based entities: Joule Global Holdings, BV and the Stichting Joule Global Foundation.

When Podesta announced his departure from the Joule board in January 2014 to become President Obama’s special counsellor, the company officially issued him 75,000 common shares of stock.

The Schedule B section of the federal government’s form 278 — which requires financial disclosures for government officials — required Podesta to “report any purchase, sale or exchange by you, your spouse, or dependent children…of any property, stocks, bonds, commodity futures and other securities when the amount of the transaction exceeded $1,000.”

Podesta’s form 278 Schedule B is blank regarding his receipt of any stock from any company.

Liberals and conservatives alike agree that Podesta should have disclosed the stock.

“Well Podesta should certainly have been more upfront in filling this out.  Clearly, it should have been fully disclosed,” said Craig Holman, a lobbyist for the liberal group Public Citizen which was founded by Ralph Nader.

“That’s the point of the personal financial disclosure forms, especially for anyone entering the White House,” he told The DCNF in an interview.

“If the transfer of stock took place, it had to be disclosed,” added former U.S. Attorney Joseph DiGenova in an interview. “If he didn’t, clearly it’s a violation.”

The same year Podesta joined Joule, the company agreed to accept 1-Billion-Rubles — or $35 million — from Rusnano, a state-run and financed Russian company with close ties to President Vladimir Putin.

Anatoly Chubais, the company CEO and two other top Russian banking executives all worked together with Podesta on the Joule boards. The board met six times a year.

Ron Hosko, a former FBI assistant director said because of the Kremlin backing, it was essential Podesta disclose the financial benefits he received from the company.

“I think in this case where you’re talking about foreign interests and foreign involvement, the collateral interest with these disclosure forms is put in the forefront of full disclosure of any foreign interest that you may have,” he told TheDCNF in an interview.

He added that Russian money was a continuing concern because it could “become a counterintelligence concern for America.”

“It’s a troubling question if you deliberately omit this information on the form,” Hosko, a 30-year veteran of the FBI told The DCNF. “Were you completely truthful on this form that you filled out, yes or no?”

Podesta took possession of the stock in January 2014, the same month he entered the White House, according to WikiLeaks.

The existence of the 75,000 shares of Joule stock was first revealed by the Government Accountability Institute report issued last year.

      jdp…Congress should put Podesta in jail for his non disclosure of Russian stocks and stop blaming Trump. Its always been the DEMS having ties to Russia Clinton’s uranium deal and more.

    • The Troubles

      The world must purge this parasite from the face of the earth. Father has his number. and its UP.The word floating around on the Dark Web is this: Podesta the Baby Eater will not survive more than 24 hours in Jail.. The inmates destroy Child Molesters. Period. End of Story. Good riddance you pile of human crap. Your old man should have pulled out. :mrgreen:

      Hello Angle#3,

      Charlie here. We know this about liberals. They always accuse you what THEY are. They always accuse you of what THEY do. Should we be surprised? No. But they give you big hints. :lol: :lol:

      So not surprised the WEASEL-FACED mongrel has done this. But that picture of the three stooges in the video? Hillaryous and Puk’n should be replaced with Wiener and Juncker. These three all look like brothers and have the same remarkable WEASEL FACES.

      Scary huh? You really do look like what you become. :twisted: :twisted:


      Charlie (Did I tell you Elton John sang my favorite song for my birthday? Lucy in the sky with doughnuts!) :lol: :lol:

    • Truthblaster

      Put this Child molesting scum bag in prison. Do your Job Sessions!!!

    • unidentified

      the pedo files, secret black book prostitutes and underground slavery might be fake stories to divert attention away from the secret global money laundering business, no one has been arrested/killed for pizza gate criminal activities or money laundering schemes

    • Josie

      I hope they are not going to prosecute Podesta for lying about bank shares and not prosecute the pervert for pizza gate crimes. Hope their not making deals! They already let Lolita Islands Epstein walk. He should never seen the light of day. Still a lot of crooked judges out there and until they are gone we won’t see justice…


      of course… the old switcheroo is being attempted here…

      Let’s get him for crap over there, to avoid getting him for being a PEDO, I believe.

      NOT going to work.. We The People have had enough, and We The People EXPECT PUBLIC ARRESTS of Politicians and High Profile People, YESTERDAY.. or We The People are gonna start telling our Sheriff’s to resign, because they are not doing their jobs. It’s very simple.. We are fed up, and We are sick of the DC 2 step. DO YOUR FUCKING JOBS or RESIGN. Those are your choices.

    • sarah

      Just like a Democrat.

      Accuse others of what they themselves are doing to hide and distract from their own crimes.

      Seems so far the ones in political and financial collusion with the Russians are likely Podesta, Hillary, and Obama.

      Imagine that.
