- The Benghazi guy is taking over, so that’s not necessarily something that Democrats will appreciate that much.”
( Daily Caller ) While discussing House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes’ recusal from the Russia probe on MSNBC Thursday, Zerlina Maxwell cast doubt over Trey Gowdy’s ability to conduct the investigation in a “completely transparent,” bipartisan fashion.
Gowdy, along with Mike Conaway and Thomas Rooney, were announced Thursday morning as the three committee members now heading the probe, to which guest Kristin Tate said she was “happy to hear.”
“The Benghazi guy,” Maxwell, who previously served as Hillary Clinton’s director of progressive media, incredulously responded to Tate. “The Benghazi guy is taking over, so that’s not necessarily something that Democrats will appreciate that much.”
TRUMP ATTACKS SLEEPY EYES CHUCK TODD FOR CALLING OBAMA WIRETAPPING AS NONSENSE WHILE PUSHING FAKE RUSSIA STORY
Russia is the FAKE NEWS the Democrats and the liberal media are using to cover up the REAL NEWS of Obama surveillance scandal. When sleepy-eyes liberal hack like MSNBC Chuck Todd calls Obama wiretapping scandal as ‘nonsense’, then definitely it’s not. Trump is doing the right thing. Don’t expect the liberal media to stop their bias and fake news. He has to keep on fighting the unhinged haters in the media whose daily job is to follow the marching orders of creating the latest hit piece against Trump.
” You have a presidency right now that I think is, it’s beyond saying it’s in crisis mode, it’s, you know, it’s on the brink, the question is on the brink of what?’ Todd said on MSNBC’s ‘Andrea Mitchell Reports’.
‘Is it on the brink of collapse? Is it on the brink of becoming a temporary lame duck presidency? Maybe it feels lame-duckish temporarily right now.’
Todd then pointed out how Trump had alienated his fellow Republicans with the latest developments.
‘You’ve got a stalled agenda. Republicans who have no fear of this president right now. They don’t think there’s a political penalty to buck him,’ he said.
‘Obviously, the Russia cloud darkens all of the time, and all of these problems right now that they’re dealing with front and center are self-inflicted by one person, the president of the United States who could not help himself but to tweet on this wiretapping nonsense, which of course has essentially helped unravel 10 days of all things Russia in their part of this story.’
UPDATE! This story needs to be confirmed.
John Podesta is asking for immunity from DOJ and FBI. Very interesting. Wonder if he knows something that we don’t. Hmmmmm.
Is this about pizzagate or his link to Russia? Let’s see.
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.
Russia threatens to reveal secrets they have made with Obama! When asked about the current state of U.S.-Russia relations, Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Maria Zakharova Russia may “publish leaks” about “secrets” the Obama administration asked the Russian government to keep private.
As per mid.ru:
Question: How do you see the future of Russian-US diplomatic relations in the context of the current atmosphere in Washington? Can you confirm that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson will come to Moscow in April?
Also, I would like to say that if the practice of leaking information that concerns not just the United States but also Russia, which has become a tradition in Washington in the past few years, continues, there will come a day when the media will publish leaks about the things that Washington asked us to keep secret, for example, things that happened during President Obama’s terms in office. Believe me, this could be very interesting information.
Our American colleagues must decide if they respect the diplomatic procedure, if they keep their word on the arrangements made between us, primarily arrangements made at their own request, or we create a few very nice surprises for each other.
TRUMP: INVESTIGATE HILLARY CLINTON-RUSSIA URANIUM DEAL, WHICH GAVE RUSSIA 20% CONTROL OF U.S. URANIUM AND $145 MILLION TO CLINTON FOUNDATION
Finally! Donald Trump is calling for investigation of Hillary Clinton for selling uranium to Russian company Uranium One, which was also owned by Russian government, giving them 20% control of U.S. uranium. In return, the Clintons got $145 million donations – did not disclose it – for their pay-for-play Clinton foundation. Hillary’s campaign director, John Podesta, not only lobbied for Uranium One but “Russia’s biggest bank uses The Podesta Group as its lobbyist in Washington, D.C.”
“In addition to certain ties with one of Russia’s largest banks, the Podesta Group is also linked to the Uranium One sale of U.S. uranium. Yes, the Clinton Campaign’s chairman is linked to a firm that lobbied the U.S. government on behalf of a corporation that eventually sold 20% of U.S. uranium to the Russian government.
Podesta’s lobbying firm worked for Uranium One after half the company was owned by the Russian government. By 2010, Russia’s state-owned Rosatom controlled a 51% stake in Uranium One.” – https://www.google.com/amp/m.huffpost.com/us/entry/us_580dbb26e4b099c4343198ff/amp …
From LIBERAL Huffington Post: Hillary Clinton Is Blaming Russia for WikiLeaks To Conceal John Podesta’s Russian Lobbying Ties
The fear mongering of associating WikiLeaks with a Russian plot to elect Donald Trump ignores the reality that John Podesta’s former lobbying firm worked to further the interests of a Russian-owned corporation and bank. Few people know that Open Podesta Group as once having a $60,000 lobbying deal with Uranium One. In addition to lobbying on behalf of a corporation that was mostly owned by the Russian government, the Podesta Group’s ties to a Russian bank is well-documented.lists the
As stated by John R. Schindler in a 2016 Observer article, the Panama Papers revealed that “Russia’s biggest bank uses The Podesta Group as its lobbyist in Washington, D.C.” If you don’t believe this claim, just look at the Podesta Group’s Senate Lobbying Registration. As for other foreign ties to John Podesta, Ben Norton of Salon writes “A key gear in the Clinton machine that has sucked in hundreds of thousands of dollars lobbying on behalf of the Saudi absolute monarchy has also worked for Russia’s biggest bank.”
In addition to certain ties with one of Russia’s largest banks, the Podesta Group is also linked to the Uranium One sale of U.S. uranium. Yes, the Clinton Campaign’s chairman is linked to a firm that lobbied the U.S. government on behalf of a corporation that eventually sold 20% of U.S. uranium to the Russian government.
…The notion that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and John Podesta didn’t know Uranium One would eventually sell 20% of U.S. uranium to the Russian government ignores an inconvenient timeline. First, Podesta’s lobbying firm worked for Uranium One after half the company was owned by the Russian government. By 2010, Russia’s state-owned Rosatom controlled a 51% stake in Uranium One.
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.
