NY Post: It’s Time to Investigate John Podesta’s Russia Ties
Peter Schweizer, author of the best-selling book Clinton Cashand president of the Government Accountability Institute writing at the New York Post, asserts that during an appearance on Fox Business, former Hillary Clinton campaign manager John Podesta made a series of questionable comments that warrant further investigation into his ties with a company that received millions of dollars from the Russian government.
Lawmakers failed to seize on an alarming development in the Russia collusion story last week, one that should spark serious and immediate congressional inquiry.
But it didn’t involve President Trump or his administration.
During a heated Fox Business interview with Maria Bartiromo, Hillary Clinton’s former campaign chief John Podesta made a series of misleading statements when questioned about his involvement in a company that received $35 million from the Russian government while Hillary served as secretary of state
On Jan. 18, 2011, a small green-energy company named Joule Unlimited announced Podesta’s appointment to its board. Months later, Rusnano, a Kremlin-backed investment fund founded by Vladimir Putin, pumped $35 million into Joule. Serving alongside Podesta on Joule’s board were senior Russian official Anatoly Chubais and oligarch Ruben Vardanyan, who has been appointed by Putin to a Russian economic-modernization council.
