Investigative reporter and author Peter Schweizer confirmed John Podesta received $35 million from Vladimir Putin’s company RUSNANO, a.k.a. ‘Putin’s Child’, while he was adviser to Hillary Clinton. Biggest bang for their Russian buck? Russia got 20% control of U.S. uranium thanks to John Podesta lobby firm.
Via FOX and Friends:
Peter Schweizer: In 2011 John Podesta joined the board of this very small energy company called Joule Energy based out of Massachusetts. About two months after he joins the board a Russian entity called RUSNANO puts a billion rubles, which is about $35 million, into John Podesta’s company. Now, what is RUSNANO? RUSNANO is not a private company, Steve. It is a fund directly funded by the Kremlin. In fact the Russian finance minister called RUSNANO “Putin’s Child.” So you have the Russian government investing in one of John Podesta’s business in 2011 while he is an adviser to Hillary Clinton at the State Department.
Steve Doocy: OK. Does anybody in the Trump circle rise to the level that there is this kind of money involved?
Peter Schweizer: No.
