Judicial Watch: John Podesta Needs To Be Investigated About His Russia Connections [Watch]

Michael W. Chapman, CNS News

John Podesta, the former chairman of the 2016 Hillary Clinton presidential campaign, served on the board of a company that received at least $35 million from a Russian investment group that was created and funded by the Kremlin and, given the current standard for investigating the Trump administration, Podesta’s Russia connections certainly merit investigation, said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.  

Earlier this week on Fox’s The Intelligence Report, host Trish Regan asked Fitton, “I want to know about John Podesta and what you think there. Does he need to be investigated?”

Fitton said,  “Well, if the standard is if you’re talking to the Russians and doing business with the Russians you need to be investigated, [then] John Podesta fits the bill to a T.”

“He served on a board with Russian government officials,” said Fitton. “His board, his company took $35 million out of $110 million raised from a Russia-centered organization, or state organization.”

“So, by all standards, he ought to be subject to an investigation on Russia collusion – if that’s the standard they’re using to investigate the Trump team,” said Fitton.

As investigator and author Peter Schweizer explained to the New York Post, Podesta was appointed to the board of the green energy firm Joule Unlimited, in Massachusetts, in January 2011.

Several months later, Rusnano, “a Kremlin-backed investment fund founded by Vladimir Putin, pumped $35 million into Joule,” reportedly more than 30% of Joule’s $110 million in outside financing.

When America Was Truly The Land Of Opportunity

For [early immigrants] America was truly the land of opportunity. For the first time in their lives, many were truly free to pursue their own objectives. That freedom released the human energies which created the United States. There were few government programs to turn to and nobody expected them. But also there were few rules and regulations. There were no licenses, no permits, no red tape to restrict them. They found, in fact, a free market, and most of them thrived on it.
