    Clinton campaign tied to Russian bank

    Russian bank Sberbank has now admitted to hiring a lobbying firm connected to the Hillary Clinton campaign to fight sanctions against the Russian government. The Podesta Group was founded by John Podesta, who served as campaign chairman for former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton during her 2016 presidential campaign.

    According to senate lobbying disclosure forms, John’s brother and current head of the firm, Tony Podesta, was paid $170,000 in 2016 to represent Sberbank to end one of the Obama administration’s economic sanctions against Russia.

    Podesta and other lobbyists worked Congress and set up meetings between the Russians and State Department officials to discuss ways to end the sanctions imposed in Executive Order 13660 in response to Russia’s annexation of Crimea. Sberbank and VTB Capital—the first and second largest banks in Russia, respectively—paid $700,000 for the lobbying work.

    1. This seems more specific than the accusations made by the other side.

    In all cases, there has been no real evidence shown the public that either the Russian government or the lobbyists and politicians contacted, or even contracted to represent them, have committed any specific crimes.

      2. Way more specific! But the Hillbots will dismiss it because "she lost and is out

      of the game”! She is no where near out of the game.

      Thanks for posting this! We need to keep watching!

      3. It sounds more realistic, too.

      Because this comes from “shadowproof”!

    4. For a long time now, people disgusted by the Clintons have

    Stated that any time they condemn someone else for an activity, they tend to have done whatever they are  charging that other individual with, long before and to a greater extent.

    It is their calling card.

    Oh and BTW, Session’s recent arrangements with Russia were brought about by Obama Admin in its final days, supposedly to help Mr Sessions get up to speed on knowing how to deal with them!
