Russians Gave $35 Million to Company with Podesta on Board

Russians Gave $35 Million to Company with Podesta on Board

April 4, 2019

John Podesta, Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign manager and former chief of staff to President Bill Clinton, may have been involved in a real Russian collusion scandal.

Breitbart reports that Podesta served on the board of Joule Unlimited, a now-defunct alternative energy company, from January 2011 to January 2014, when he resigned to become Counselor to President Barack Obama. Eight months after Podesta joined the board, Rusnano, a venture capital fund wholly owned by the Russian government, announced it was investing one billion Russian rubles, $35 million, in the company. Curiously, the infusion escaped review by the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States.
