Here is a smack down that one doesn’t get to witness very often. Marie sank her teeth into Podesta and like a good bull-dog, didn’t let up. Finally someone looks at the Clinton crime cabal. Example:
“You joined the board of a small energy company in 2011,” Bartiromo said. “Two months later a Russian entity directly funded by the Kremlin invested $35 million in the company. You were given 75,000 shares in a Russian company which you failed to disclose when you became an Obama associate.”
“Maria, that is not true. I fully disclosed and I was completely compliant,” Podesta responded.
“You are picking through my emails that were stolen from the Russians and released by WikiLeaks and creating a story that is not true,” he added.
Bartiromo continued to say he had shares in a “Russian company.”
“Go back and get your facts straight, Maria,” Podesta said.
“That’s not true, John. We know you owned 75,000 shares,” Bartiromo responded.
John Podesta, the chairman for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign, was a target of WikiLeaks during the election, but Wednesday he battled with Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo over his own links to Russia.
Podesta blamed the Russians when his hacked emails were published by WikiLeaks during the 2016 campaign, asserting that Moscow was working to elect now-President Donald Trump. The U.S. intelligence community has said the hack was part of a broader Russian effort to interfere in the election.
But the longtime Clinton ally, who met with the House Intelligence Committee behind closed doors on Tuesday to discuss Russian meddling, has also faced allegations that he owned shares in a Kremlin-backed energy company, Joule Unlimited.
Bartiromo pushed Podesta on his association with the company, which she said was “widely reported” to be Kremlin-backed. Podesta served on the company’s board for multiple years starting in 2011. Read More:Free Beacon
