New report drops BOMBSHELL on Hillary’s secret ties to Russia
Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s cronies have been making much ado about GOP nominee Donald Trump’s supposed connections to Russia’s Vladimir Putin.
Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta suggested Trump has a “kind of bromance” going with Russian President Vladmir Putin.
Robert Reich — former Secretary of Labor in the Clinton administration, now a professor at University of California at Berkeley — went deeper, suggesting apattern of Trump’s financial connections to Russia and Putin (citing John Marshall’s article at TPM). The points center largely on Trump’s financing through Russian banks, as well as Trump campaign team members’ previous stints advising and/or investing in Russian-connected entities.
So it will be interesting to hear what Clinton’s cronies and Podesta himself have to say about a just-released report detailing the Russian technology initiative former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton spearheaded — largely comprised of Clinton Foundation donors — as well as campaign chairman Podesta’s own position on a board, alongside Russian officials, which received $35 million from a Putin-connected Russian government fund. (Oddly, Podesta failed to fully disclose this on his federal financial disclosures as required by law.)
Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta sat on the board of a small energy company alongside Russian officials that received $35 million from a Putin-connected Russian government fund, a relationship Podesta failed to fully disclose on his federal financial disclosures as required by law.
That’s one of the many revelations from a 56-page report released late Sunday titled “From Russia with Money: Hillary Clinton, the Russian Reset, and Cronyism” by the non-partisan government watchdog group, the Government Accountability Institute (GAI). Breitbart Executive Chairman Stephen K. Bannon holds the same title in GAI and Breitbart News Senior Editor-at-Large Peter Schweizer serves as GAI’s president.
One of the reports’ major revelations is then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s leadership on a Russian technology initiative, intended to be the equivalent of Silicon Valley, called Skolkovo. According to the GAI report, Clinton’s State Dept. recruited U.S. tech giants like Google, Cisco, Intel. And, here’s a shocker: out of 28 U.S., European, and Russian companies that participated the Russian technology initiative, 17 of them were Clinton Foundation donors or paid for speeches by Bill Clinton.
As Breitbart elaborates:
However, as involvement in Skolkovo by Clinton cronies increased, so, too, did the danger for the technology coming out of the Russian tech mecca to be used for Russian military purposes.
In 2014, the FBI issued what it called “an extraordinary warning” to several technology companies involved with Skolkovo. “The [Skolkovo] foundation may be a means for the Russian government to access our nation’s sensitive or classified research development facilities and dual-use technologies with military and commercial application,” warned Lucia Ziobro, the assistant special agent at the FBI’s Boston office. She added: “The FBI believes the true motives of the Russian partners, who are often funded by the government, is to gain access to classified, sensitive, and emerging technology from the companies.”
As The Wall Street Journal says of Skolkovo, Far from enhancing American national interests, Mrs. Clinton’s efforts in this area may have substantially undermined U.S. national security.
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton undermining our nation’s national security? Sounds familiar.
Meanwhile, her campaign chairman John Podesta was sitting on the board of a small energy company called
