The Russian trail leads to Democrat Lobbyists The Podesta Group


 

“After the election I will have more flexibility.”

It’s obscene to think that the Podestas will get immunity. There is no one more Russia Russia Russia than the Podesta group. The Clintons will be protected once more. I had intended for my Saturday Flashback post to be:

Bill Clinton’s Multi-Million Dollar Communist Uranium Deal – Circa 2008

which shows there is no one more treasonous than one Bill Clinton with the seed of the present Russian collusion motif beginning there. Check it out. But what do you know, when reading it, the post circles us around back to K Street, lobbyists, the Podesta Group. So let’s do this from Forbes:

The media’s focus on Trump’s Russian connections ignores the much more extensive and lucrative business relationships of top Democrats with Kremlin-associated oligarchs and companies.

Thanks to the Panama Papers, we know that the Podesta Group (founded by John Podesta’s brother, Tony) lobbied for Russia’s largest bank, Sberbank. “Sberbank is the Kremlin, they don’t do anything major without Putin’s go-ahead, and they don’t tell him ‘no’ either,” explained a retired senior U.S. intelligence official.

According to a Reuters report, Tony Podesta was “among the high-profile lobbyists registered to represent organizations backing Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich.” Among these was the European Center, which paid Podesta $900,000 for his lobbying.

That’s not all: The busy Podesta Group also represented Uranium One, a uranium company acquired by the Russian government which received approval from Hillary Clinton’s State Department to mine for uranium in the U.S. and gave Russia twenty percent control of US uranium. The New York Times reported Uranium One’s chairman, Frank Guistra, made significant donations to the Clinton Foundation, and Bill Clinton was paid $500,000 for one speech from a Russian investment bank that has “links to the Kremlin that was promoting Uranium One stock.”

Let’s not leave out fugitive Ukrainian oligarch, Dymtro Firtash. He is represented by Democratic heavyweight lawyer, Lanny Davis, who accused Trump of “inviting Putin to commit espionage” (Trump’s quip: If Putin has Hillary’s emails, release them) but denies all wrongdoing by Hillary.

In his February 16 press conference, President Trump declared in response to the intensifying media drumbeat on his Russian connections: “I haven’t done anything for Russia.” K-Street lobbyists, on the other hand, have done a lot to help Russia.

They greased the skids for a strategic deal (that required the Secretary of State’s approval) that multiplied the Kremlin’s command of world uranium supplies. They likely prevented the shipment of strategic weapons needed by Ukraine to repulse well-armed pro-Russian forces. A fugitive billionaire who robbed the Ukrainian people of billions is represented by one of the establishment’s most connected lawyers. More at Forbes

    The one thing we have learned through all of this is how dirty the Democratic party (the Clinton’s especially) are. We always knew it but this reaffirms it and yet the focus remains on Trump and I have to believe it is to make him or somebody in his group the fall guy for what the Democrats have been doing all these years. Mueller’s task is to deflect the blame.

        This week brought a new low….It is getting to the point that one doesn’t/can’t pay attention to what is happening. After all, everyone is tuning out….but that’s the point of this isn’t it?

      I wonder how many “Republicans” are inside Podesta’s pockets … this sort of thing doesn’t happen in a vacuum. It’s the old Potomac Two-Step …

        That’s my biggest fear….I doubt too Republicans are exactly in Podesta’s pockets because he’d find a way to expose them the minute they weren’t helpful anymore, but I do think that when we start dividing, something the Left RARELY DOES, we’re done, and might as well march like sheep to the liberal slaughter.
        What I learned listening to yesterday’s video of him and Maria Barturomo was “THAT GUY IS SHARP” REALLY smart, and really able to talk himself right out of the obvious. Beware.

        Its the same recycled deep state operatives over and over again. As much as I wished for Hillary and her merry band of thieves to face justice, my new bulls eye is on one Jeff Sessions who was given the chance to make one big dent in the swamp and instead became part of it….. That is the one who should pay the price for this unholy mess.
