As the nation grows ever more tired of the phony allegations of collusion between Donald Trump and the Russians, one of the left’s most prolific characters is facing similar assertions.
From the moment that Donald Trump stunned rival Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election, the democrats have been frantically and pathetically searching for some boogeyman to pin their loss on. It seems that owning up to Clinton’s corruption and its effect on the psyche of the American voter is just not an option. Their favorite of these evil-doers? Russia.
Now, in one of the most spectacular examples of karma to blossom from 2016’s bizarre election, it looks as though the right hand man of the former First Lady will himself be facing serious allegations of improper relationships with the gang over in the Kremlin.
“Despite his attempts to downplay his working relationships with Russian-owned companies, John Podesta — former presidential campaign chairman for Hillary Clinton and former White House chief of staff for her husband’s administration — could soon be the subject of a Congressional investigation.
“According to a report in The Daily Caller Tuesday, Rep. Louie Gohmert, (R-Texas) wants to initiate a congressional investigation into Podesta’s dealings with a state-run company founded by Russian President Vladimir Putin, called Rusnano.
“As vice chair of the House Judiciary Committee’s subcommittee on crime, terrorism and homeland security, Gohmert told the DCNF, ‘This certainly needs to be reviewed to see if there really is something nefarious going on.’
“Podesta has reportedly been working with the Russian firm since 2011, taking seats on the boards and executive committees of its high-tech renewable energy enterprises.”
While Podesta’s Russian connections are absolutely known, it will take a thorough investigation by congress to determine the appropriateness of the relationship, and what connection these ties could have to Hillary Clinton and her campaign staff.
