John Podesta, a former White House chief of staff and the chairman of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, may have violated federal law by not disclosing shares he owns in a Kremlin-funded firm, according to a report by the Gateway Pundit.
Breitbart editor and author of “Clinton Cash” Peter Schweizer appeared on FOX and Friends Tuesday to make the bombshell revelation of the Clinton camp’s links with the Putin regime.
Schweizer said that in 2011, Podesta joined the board of a small Massachusetts-based energy company called Joule Energy. Two months later he joins the board of Russian private equity firm Rusnano, which invests a billion rubles or about $35 million into Podesta’s company.
Schweizer explains that Rusnano is not a private company, but rather gets its funding directly from the Russian government. He emphasizes that the Kremlin was investing in one of Podesta’s businesses in 2011, while serving as an advisor to then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
