For almost a year, the media and the Democrats have tried to take down Donald Trump by claiming he’s tied to Russia.
Yet no evidence has emerged.
Now one report reveals shocking ties to Russia that just upended the whole story.
It turns out it was Hillary Clinton’s campaign that was financially linked to the Russians.
The Podesta Group is led by Tony Podesta, the brother of Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta.
They registered as a foreign agent for their work on behalf of a pro-Putin group in Ukraine.
It was the Podesta group that was lobbying for sanctions to be lifted stemming from Russia’s invasion of Crimea.
The Daily Caller reports:
“A lobbying firm closely allied with Hillary Clinton has registered as a foreign agent for a Ukrainian organization with ties to Russia’s president, Vladimir Putin.
Paul Manafort, the former campaign chairman for Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, also plans to register with the Justice Department for work he did for the same group, the European Centre for a Modern Ukraine.
A spokesman for Manafort made the announcement just after the Associated Press reported that the Podesta Group has registered with the Justice Department under the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA) for work done for the European Centre between 2012 and 2014.
The Podesta Group, which received $1.2 million for the work, is operated by Tony Podesta, a major Democratic donor and the brother of Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta.”
This is not the Clinton’s or the Podesta’s only shady ties to Russia.
While she was Secretary of State, Clinton headed one of nine federal agencies that could have recommended President Obama to stop a deal where an energy company connected to the Russian government purchased 20 percent of North America’s uranium stock.
The Clinton Foundation failed to disclose a contribution from the company’s CEO and it led many to wonder why they were hiding the money.
In addition, campaign chairman John Podesta was financially linked to the Russian government.
The Daily Caller reported he was the possible target of a Russian influence campaign:
“The advisor’s close associations with Russian business leaders started in 2011, when agreed to join the boards of three intertwined companies: Boston-based Joule Unlimited, Rotterdam-based Joule Global Holdings and Joule Global Stichting, the company’s controlling interest. Stichting was based in The Hague.
The nonprofit Government Accountability Institute (GAI) first exposed Podesta’s Russian links at Joule in a highly-detailed report released in 2016.
Podesta left Joule leadership in January, 2014, the same month he joined the Obama administration.
His time on the Joule board coincided with Clinton’s State Department tenure when she was pursuing the “Russian Reset” policy with Moscow…
… Later, Aram Grigorian joined Vardanian on the Joule boards. He was Troika’s managing director who engineered an historic merger of his bank with Sberbank, the country’s largest bank. Grigorian currently serves as Joule’s vice chairman.
Shortly after Podesta joined Joule, another top Russian appeared: Anatoly Chubais, CEO of a state-owned company called Rusnano. The company was established by President Vladimir Putin. Chubais also brought with him one billion rubles [worth an estimated $35 million] as investment capital to Joule.”
There is zero evidence connecting the Trump campaign to Russia.
The media is inventing a fake news story that the Russians colluded with the Trump campaign on email hacking while ignoring the documented financial dealings between the Clintons, their associates, and the Russian government that could have swung American foreign policy.
