This week in a White House briefing, Sean Spicer made it clear that Hillary Clinton has more connections with Russia than Donald Trump ever has.
And now we have confirmation. In addition to the speaking fees, the nuclear deals and other goodies from Russia, Hillary’s chief adviser John Podesta received a huge payout.
After joining the board of an oil company connected with Russia, Podesta immediately received a payment via his company of a billion rubles, which equates to 35 million U.S.
Those funds came directly from a firm owned by the Russian government.
Where there’s smoke there’s fire.
Here’s more from Gateway Pundit…
The Putin Government gave John Podesta 35 millions dollars (1 billion rubles) while he advised Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.
Investigative reporter and author Peter Schweizer went on FOX and Friends to discuss Kremlin influence on US politics — and how the Clinton camp was in bed with the Putin regime.
Peter Schweizer: In 2011 John Podesta joined the board of this very small energy company called Joule Energy based out of Massachusetts. About two months after he joins the board a Russian entity called RUSNANO puts a billion rubles, which is about $35 million, into John Podesta’s company. Now, what is RUSNANO? RUSNANO is not a private company, Steve. It is a fund directly funded by the Kremlin. In fact the Russian finance minister called RUSNANO “Putin’s Child.” So you have the Russian government investing in one of John Podesta’s business in 2011 while he is an adviser to Hillary Clinton at the State Department.
Steve Doocy: OK. Does anybody in the Trump circle rise to the level that there is this kind of money involved?
Peter Schweizer: No.
