NEW JOHN PODESTA RUSSIAN TIES: DIDN’T DISCLOSE 75,000 STOCK SHARES FROM RUSSIAN COMPANY AFTER BECOMING OBAMA’S COUNSELOR IN 2014
Hillary Clinton’s former campaign chairman and Obama adviser, John Podesta, may have violated federal law when he failed to disclose 75,000 stock shares from a Russian-backed company in 2014. Another REAL Russian scandal fake news liberal media refused to cover is the fact Hillary Clinton sold 20% of our Uranium to Russia in exchange for $150 million to the Clinton Foundation. In the meantime, the anti-Trump media continue to insist their imaginary Trump and Russian connection really happened.
The Daily Caller reports:
Joule Unlimited Technologies — financed in part by a Russian firm — originally awarded Podesta 100,000 shares of stock options when in 2010 he joined that board along with its Dutch-based entities: Joule Global Holdings, BV and the Stichting Joule Global Foundation.
When Podesta announced his departure from the Joule board in January 2014 to become President Obama’s special counsellor, the company officially issued him 75,000 common shares of stock.
The Schedule B section of the federal government’s form 278 which — requires financial disclosures for government officials — required Podesta to “report any purchase, sale or exchange by you, your spouse, or dependent children…of any property, stocks, bonds, commodity futures and other securities when the amount of the transaction exceeded $1,000.”
Podesta’s form 278 Schedule B is blank regarding his receipt of any stock from any company.
