Ever since Trump got elected as president, the butthurt on the left has been massive. As a way to excuse away Hillary’s embarrassing and unprecedented loss, liberals continue to push the ridiculous and baseless propaganda that Donald Trump “colluded” with the Russian government, which in the end was the only thing that got him elected president. As their narrative continues to reach epic proportions of insanity, their very own John Podesta was just busted in a HUGE scandal, proving who is truly in bed and “colluding” with the Russian government.
In a breaking report Monday morning, Sean Hannity from FOX News reveals that Hillary’s 2016 campaign chairman, John Podesta, violated federal law during the election by failing to disclose that he had purchased a startling 75,000 shares of stock from a company with close ties to the Kremlin that made him a very, very, rich man.
Podesta received the shares from Joule Unlimited Technologies while serving on the company’s board back in 2010. After announcing he was leaving the company to work at the White House in 2014, he was awarded an additional 75,000 common share stocks.
The Schedule B section of the financial disclosure forms for government officials demands that new employees “report any purchase, sale or exchange by you, your spouse, or dependent children…of any property, stocks, bonds, commodity futures and other securities when the amount of the transaction exceeded $1,000.”
Apparently, Podesta didn’t find it necessary to disclose tens of thousands of shares of stock, and left that section completely blank.
The new information was even condemned by liberals, with one lobbyist slamming Podesta over the newly-leaked info. Not only did Podesta fail to disclose his collusion with the Russian government, but was intricately involved with three top-ranking banking officials, where the company in question received a whopping $35 million from the Russian government.
“Podesta should certainly have been more upfront in filling this out. Clearly, it should have been fully disclosed,” said a lobbyist with close ties to left-leaning Public Citizen. “That’s the point of the personal financial disclosure forms, especially for anyone entering the White House.”
A former FBI official chimed in to put Podesta on blast, saying it was even more important to disclose the stocks because of their foreign affiliations.
“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,” he said.
Nice diversion tactics, huh? It’s amazing that liberals continue to get busted for the very same corruption that they keep screaming is rampant on the other side. Deep down they know that President Trump isn’t “colluding” with the Russian government. They’re simply trying to deflect the blame off of themselves.
