According to a recent article on lifezette.com, the Government Accountability Institute(GAI) , a non-partisan organization, has just released a “bombshell” report stating that Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, John Podesta, had developed “relationships with a Putin-connected Russian government fund.”
Mr. Podesta has in the past served as a board member for a company called Joule Unlimited, an energy company, a job at which he received $35 million from an “entity” connected to the highest levels of the Russian government.
Joule Unlimited was actually a part off a “Russian reset” program, which then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton helped initiate.” The program was meant to lead to the construction of an innovative city to be named Skolkovo, which would be “the equivalent” of the U.S’s Silicon Valley.
Opponents of this “initiative”, including the FBI, said that the Russian government would “use Skolkovo to gain access to technology and information that would help build up their military.”
The Government Accountability Institute’s(GAI) report also stated ”
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.
In Russia, Rusnano is basically a “government owned joint stock company” that Putin created back in 2007.
However, the GAI report was not able to tell just “how much money Podesta made from the deal”, since he was on the company’s executive board with three others, but only “listed two of them on his government disclosure findings.”
We don’t know why Mr. Podesta didn’t “disclose the membership on the board of one of the Joule entities”, even though it was “required by law.” The fact that Podesta had such a close relationship with the Russian government just goes to show that the Clinton Campaign is untrustworthy as can be.
Considering the recent DNC email hack, which likely originated from Russian hackers, Clinton’s campaign looks more and more like a front for the Russian government here in the U.S.
