The Wikileaks information dumps have been devastating to Hillary Clinton and her campaign, and it doesn’t seem to be getting any better for her.
The latest round of emails, given the hashtag #PodestaEmails14 on Twitter, reveals a connection to Russian President Vladimir Putin – the very person that Hillary and the Democrats have been blaming for the leaked information.
According to Breitbart News, the daughter of Hillary’s campaign chair, John Podesta, received a notable amount shares in a Putin-linked energy company in Russia. Yikes.
Breitbart has more:
An email uncovered in the Wikileaks hacks reveals that Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta’s “75,000 common shares” — obtained from his membership on the executive board of an energy company, Joule Unlimited, which received millions from a Putin-connected Russian government fund — were transferred to his daughter, Megan Rouse.
“Full transfer request, with Megan’s signature attached,” Podesta’s assistant Eryn Sepp wrote to him.
A January 3, 2014 letter revealed that Podesta designated his daughter’s Dublin, California residence as the address for Leonidio Holdings LLC, the Delaware-based holding company that Podesta used to transfer his shares in Russian-related Joule Global Holdings.
Rouse is listed as “managing member” of Leonidio Holdings LLC, according to financial documents.
Podesta’s membership on the board of directors of Joule Unlimited was first revealed in research from Breitbart News Senior Editor-at-Large and Government Accountability Institute (GAI) President Peter Schweizer.
The GAI report, tilted, “From Russia with Money: Hillary Clinton, the Russian Reset, and Cronyism,” reported that Podesta joined the Joule Unlimited board in June 2011.
Well, that’s not good. Here these people have been slamming Trump for alleged ties to Russian, meanwhile the daughter of the brains behind Hillary’s entire operation is really the on with such ties.
Odds are, Hillary knows this happened, and odds are, if she’s asked about it she “won’t be able to recall” whether or not she knew. Regardless, if there’s one thing we’ve learned throughout this election, it’s that whatever Team Hillary is accusing Trump of, you can rest assured it’s something they’re doing themselves.
