It looks like the FBI and the Justice Department are launching an investigation into the Podesta Group. They want to see if there are any “wrongdoings” related to the “alleged” corruption that occurred in the administration with the former president of Ukraine. If it’s anything like the previous hearings or findings on Benghazi or Clinton’s private email server, please just spare us the details…we already know what the end result will be.
I mean come on folks. It’s not like the FBI doesn’t have enough evidence of corruption on Hillary Clinton, if they really wanted to put her away they could have already. Of course, as FBI Director Comey said, Hillary Clinton was just “extremely careless”. Who really cares what she did or what she does. It’s all about the money and power – and we all know she’s still got both.
The federal probe is, CNN reports, “examining the work of other firms linked to the former Ukrainian government, including that of the Podesta Group.”
The Podesta Group, run by John Podest’s brother Tony Podesta, was retained by the Russia-controlled firm UraniumOne in 2012, 2014, and 2015, to lobby Hillary Clinton’s State Department. The lobbying firm was paid a total of $180,000 according to public records.
Yanukovych took office in February 2010. He was forced to flee to Russian after a political uprising in Ukraine. Federal prosecutors are probing the work Yanukovych’s regime paid the Podesta Group to do while he was the head of the Ukrainian government.
As it was first detailed in the New York Times bestselling book Clinton Cash, Uranium One — which hired the Podesta Group — is the firm that funneled millions to the Clinton Foundation as the Russian government gained ownership of the company.
According to the New York Times, Russian President Vladimir Putin had a “goal of controlling much of the global uranium supply chain.”
This is the same old story. As Peter Schweizer author of “Clinton Cash” has explained many times over: Just follow the money. Whenever you want to know the answers, follow the money, especially when it comes to Hillary Clinton and “alleged” corruption. The storyline goes like this: A favor is needed or wanted by a foreign government or organization, a company suddenly asks Bill Clinton for a speech which he is then paid handsomely for, Hillary does a favor or extends a contract to that foreign government or organization, then a donation is made to the Clinton Foundation. That pretty much sums it up.
So, when it comes to the Ukraine, Russia and the Uranium deal – it’s the same storyline. This story also involves Frank Giustra. and Tony Podesta and Uranium One. It seems the Podesta Group was hired by Uranium One as a lobbying firm and made $180,000. The Podesta Group then funneled millions of dollars into the Clinton Foundation, which Bill and Hillary were “extremely careless” and forget to report or disclose. In fact, Uranium One’s Foundation gave at least 4 donations with a total of $2.35 million to the Clinton Foundation. This of course, was after Mr. Clinton received over $500,000 for a speech in Moscow on behalf of Uranium One. Sound familiar. What did Putin and the Russians get out of it – a nice stake of 1/5 of all the uranium production capacity in the United States. So, when you see signs of Uranium One in Wyoming, Utah and Texas, you can be sure to thank the Podesta Group and Hillary Clinton for “selling out” our uranium resources. Yes, I know what you’re thinking, how can all of this be legal?
Funny thing. Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation are setting precedent for all those scandals that follow. You see, American political campaigns like “Hillary Clinton for President 2016” are barred from accepting donations from foreign governments and foreigners, HENCE the Clinton Foundation comes in. The Clinton Foundation CAN accept ALL those marvelous donations from ALL those in foreign countries who want to influence American policy or, as John or Tony Podesta, Frank Guistra, or Ian Telfer would say suddenly “feel the need to donate to the Clinton Foundation”.
It’s all pretty clear to me. Everything in America is for sale when it comes to Hillary Clinton. Make no mistakes about it. She has the power and the money and will do ANYTHING to keep it. So as far as the American people are concerned, the FBI and the Justice Department will just “go through the motion” to appease those voters who can then say, “we did an investigation, but found nothing”. Once again, Hillary Clinton was just “extremely careless”. Thanks for nothing!
