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.
