New financial disclosures have revealed that there was Russian collusion, but the good news is that it did not involve President Trump!
Instead the finger of guilt is pointing directly at the DNC.
Hardly a big surprise to anyone other than the liberal left and its MSM lackeys – the people who have been whining on for months about how the Russians (and not their candidate Crooked Hillary) lost them the Presidential election last year.
Recently released documents have revealed that the Podesta Group, owned by Crooked Hillary’s friend Tony Podesta, was attempting to influence Clinton and Biden, on behalf of Putin and the Russians, through a Ukrainian front organization.

The incriminating evidence appeared in several financial documents lodged with the Department of Justice.
They reveal ties to “a pro-Russia Ukrainian think tank.”
Experts say Podesta was attempting to influence Clinton and Biden, on behalf of Putin and the Russians.
The newly disclosed documents show “dozens of previously unreported interactions the firm made with influential government offices, including Hillary Clinton’s State Department and the office of former Vice President Joe Biden while lobbying on behalf of the center.”
In April this year, the Washington based lobbying firm admitted doing work between 2012 and 2014 for the European Centre for a Modern Ukraine that “may have principally benefited a foreign government.”
According to the law, before you can lobby or perform public relations to benefit a foreign government, you have to register as a foreign agent. The documents filed last week contain the back-dated short-form registration papers for six employees of the Podesta Group.
Also included is a document that amends the registration statement for the entire company, “that includes a list of political contributions made by relevant employees throughout 2013.”
A review of the documents shows that the State Department, with Hillary Clinton in charge at the time, and the Vice President’s office, both “received cash from Podesta Group Lobbyists.”
As always President Trump got to the heart of the issue. In a tweet back in April he asked pointedly, “Was the brother of John Podesta paid big money to get the sanctions on Russia lifted? Did Hillary know?”
trump tweet re Podestas and the RussiansThese are questions that still need to be answered.
Tony Podesta was personally named in one of the statements. He acted as a “bundler” for contributions to Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign. His brother, John Podesta, was Hillary’s campaign chairman. The two brothers founded the firm in 1988.
The belated attempt hand over their “corrected” disclosure statements to the Justice Department in April came hard on the heels of news reports screaming that Podesta “may have broken a federal law” when he failed to report 75,000 shares of stock from “a Kremlin-financed company”, called Joule Unlimited Technologies, back when he went to work for Obama in 2014.
Joule Unlimited Technologies is financed in part by a Russian firm, and they at first awarded him 100,000 shares of stock options when he joined that board in 2010 along with its Dutch-based entities: Joule Global Holdings, BV and the Stichting Joule Global Foundation.
Joule is well known to be a Russian state run and financed business with “very close ties to Putin.”
According to U.S. Attorney Joseph DiGenova, if Podesta didn’t disclose the stock transfer, “clearly it’s a violation.”
Other Russian players also have Podesta ties. Russian CEO, Anatoly Chubais along with two “top Russian banking executives,” met with Podesta and his group “six times a year.”
None of these meetings were ever talked about. Ron Hosko who is a former FBI assistant director explains, “since Kremlin money was backing this, it was vital that Podesta report the perks that he got as a result. I think in this case where you’re talking about foreign interests and foreign involvement, the collateral interest with these disclosure forms is put in the forefront of full disclosure of any foreign interest that you may have.”
Don’t hold your breath in the hope of seeing any of this reported for the next year or so on the mainstream fake news media.
