Podesta-Connected Company Got $35M From Russia, Raising New Collusion Concerns

John Podesta’s shady dealing were once considered nothing more than fodder for conspiracy theorists. Not so much, these days.

The political “swamp” that President Donald Trump promised to drain may be deeper than we ever imagined, as evidenced by the latest news from Hillary Clinton’s inner circle.

During the waning days of the 2016 US Presidential election, a peculiar and daring thing occurred:  A vast number of emails from inside the Hillary Clinton campaign were leaked to the public via Wikileaks.  The emails, emanating from the desk of Clinton Campaign Manager John Podesta, contained a litany of damning and damaging information that utterly shocked Americans.

Certain subjects in the emails were so controversial as to even spur censorship on websites such as Reddit.

The emails revealed the depths of depravity that our current political population will sink to in order to win.

Now, even more has been revealed about the shady behavior of John Podesta, and this time there are Kremlin-connection concerns.

Podesta, the former chief of staff to President Bill Clinton, served on the board of Joule Unlimited, a now defunct alternative energy company, from January 2011 to January 2014. He resigned from the company’s board to accept the powerful job of Counselor to President Barack Obama.

During Podesta’s tenure on the board of Joule Unlimited, a significant investment in the company by a firm owned by the Russian government escaped review and scrutiny by the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS).

And here is where it gets ever more ludicrous.

In September 2011, eight months after Podesta joined the board of Joule Unlimited, Rusnano, a venture capital fund wholly owned by the Russian government, announced it was investing one billion Russian rubles, $35 million, in the company, which accounted for 46 percent of the $75 million invested in it up to that time from its launch in 2007. Founders Afeyan Noubar and Dr. David Berry invested an estimated $10 million in the 2007 first round. The venture firm Noubar heads, Flagship Ventures – now known as Flagship Pioneering – led a second round investment of  $30 million in 2010, as the Boston Globe reported.

Curiously, the CFIUS failed to initiate a review of the transaction despite statutory and administrative guidelines that any such transaction in which a foreign country or foreign company obtained more than a ten percent interest in an American company was reviewable.

The reality of John Podesta’s unscrupulous dealings was once considered merely fodder for conspiracy theorists and anti-Hillary obsessives.

Now, as it turns out, these maneuvers are far more serious than even the most off-the-rails, Alex Jones-wannabe could have ever dreamt.

Bill Barr Confirms This Was ‘First Time In History’ A ‘Presidential Campaign’ Was Spied On

People need to know the truth, once and for all…

It happened and it was egregious. There is no doubt about it, whatsoever. The 2016 Trump campaign was spied on. That much is 100% certain. And it is historic. Here’s what’s up, straight from the lips of Bill Barr – from Daily Wire: Attorney General William Barr slammed the FBI during an interview with NBC News on Tuesday, saying that the campaign was “clearly spied upon” and that it was the “first time in history” that something like that had ever happened to a presidential candidate. NBC News Pete Williams asked Barr, “Based on what you know so far, do you still stand by your statement that the campaign was spied upon?” Barr noted, “Oh, it was clearly spied upon. I mean, that’s what electronic surveillance is. I think wiring people up to go in and talk to people and make recordings of their conversations is spying. I think going through people’s emails which they did as a result of the FISA warrant. They went through everything, you know, from Page’s life.” WATCH: AG Bill Bar maintains the Trump campaign was very “clearly spied upon…” as a result of the sham FISA warrant, which Barr says was used to get emails, texts from the campaign. https://twitter.com/jasonrantz/status/1204531998485647361?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1204531998485647361&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fbarr-bombshell-trump-campaign-clearly-spied-upon-first-time-in-history-to-happen-to-presidential-campaign WATCH: AG Bill Barr on the Democrats: “they rallied around an explicit strategy of using every tool & maneuver available to sabotage the functioning of [the Trump admin]… they essentially see themselves as engaged in a war to cripple, by any means necessary, a duly elected government” https://twitter.com/RealSaavedra/status/1195862925749043200?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1195862925749043200&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fobama-appears-to-rip-ocasio-cortez-in-warning-to-democrat-presidential-candidates It’s no wonder Democrats are so uninformed.

Barack Obama Was Better President Than George Washington, Says Most Democrat Voters

Holy moly! WOW!

Published

903 adults were polled. 838 of those people were registered voters. At the end of the day, the majority of Democrat voters said something absolutely unconscionable. Why? Because Barack Obama is the greatest human being to ever walk the planet – obviously. You’d think even the most partisan Democrat voters would pick George Washington over Obama as America’s greatest president, but no. That’s how unbelievably how far left they’ve gone. They’re out of bounds. The line is a dot to them. See for yourself… From Breitbart: Most Democratic voters say that they believe former President Barack Obama was a better president than founding father and first U.S. president George Washington, according to a recent poll. The Monmouth University poll found that 63 percent of Democrats thought that Obama was a better president than Washington. Only 29 percent of those polled thought that Washington was better than the 44th president. Democrats need to stop with their praise of Barack. He literally did nothing good for eight solid years, outside of presiding over the killing of Osama bin Laden. Heck, even 2020 Democrat candidates bashed 44’s record like it was their job at the second debate. Longtime Obama aide Valerie Jarrett just doesn’t get it, though.
