The Democrats keep repeating the lie that President-elect Trump has ties to the Kremlin in hopes that in doing so enough times it will become the truth.
However, they have yet to show any proof whatsoever that Trump and Russia worked together to influence the outcome of the election. Yet this doesn’t seem to be stopping them from sounding the alarm and begging the Electoral College to completely ignore the will of the people.
But amid all the hysteria about Trump’s alleged ties to Russia, a report has surfaced documenting Hillary Clinton’s actual ties to the nation. From the Uranium One deal to her campaign chair’s business dealings, Hillary was much further in bed with our Soviet adversaries than Trump could ever dream.
Imagine that, Democrats projecting their own behavior onto their opposition.
From IJ Review:
A Wall Street Journal commentary article from October made some concerning points about John Podesta, a wily political operative who also founded the Center for American Progress and has ties to the Clinton Foundation. As the WSJ article points out:
The story begins in 2011 when the solar energy startup Joule Unlimited announced that Mr. Podesta had been elected to its board of directors. In a company press release, Joule’s CEO at the time lauded Mr. Podesta’s “extensive experience within the US government and internationally as well.” No one claimed Mr. Podesta was a scientific expert, but the company’s founder expressed the hope that their new associate “can help Joule build the lasting relationships needed for long-term success.”
A former White House chief of staff for President Bill Clinton, Mr. Podesta at the time was running the Center for American Progress, which supported the Obama administration’s “Russian reset.” Mr. Podesta personally lauded the effort to “build a more constructive relationship” with Russia at a 2009 event hosted by his think tank.
WikiLeaks emails showed that Podesta made a financial disclosure to the White House, and part of this disclosure is that he transferred shares to a newly formed entity Leonidio Holdings, LLC., which was based at the same address as his daughter Megan Rouse.
In 2014, Podesta issued a statement that he had “transferred the entirety of his holdings to his adult children” and then “recused himself from all matters pertaining to Joule for the duration of his time at the White House.”
But the untold story behind that story is one that involves not just the Russian president, but also a former American president and a woman who would like to be the next one. […]
As the Russians gradually assumed control of Uranium One in three separate transactions from 2009 to 2013, Canadian records show, a flow of cash made its way to the Clinton Foundation. Uranium One’s chairman used his family foundation to make four donations totaling $2.35 million. Those contributions were not publicly disclosed by the Clintons, despite an agreement Mrs. Clinton had struck with the Obama White House to publicly identify all donors. Other people with ties to the company made donations as well.
And shortly after the Russians announced their intention to acquire a majority stake in Uranium One, Mr. Clinton received $500,000 for a Moscow speech from a Russian investment bank with links to the Kremlin that was promoting Uranium One stock.
Then there is the matter of a Russian government initiative outright giving millions of dollars to the Clinton Foundation. As the Washington Free Beacon reported in August:
A Moscow-based technology initiative funded in part by the Russian government funneled tens of millions of dollars into the Clinton Foundation while Hillary Clinton was serving as secretary of state, according to a new report released Monday.
As President Obama’s top diplomat, Clinton oversaw and facilitated the State Department’s failed five-year project to “reset” U.S.-Russia relations, which spurred the creation of Skolkovo, a research facility known as Russia’s version of Silicon Valley, Clinton Cash author Peter Schweizer wrote in a new report, titled “From Russia with Money.”
Yeah. So maybe it’s time for them to stop with the Russian hysteria, since it’s evident Russia had a much greater interest in Hillary than they do Trump.
