Making these claims is none other than Breitbart editor Peter Schweizer the author of Clinton Cash.
Speaking on Fox & Friends this morning, Schweizer said the following:
In 2011, John Podesta joins the board of this very small energy company called Joule Energy based out of Massachusetts. About two months after he joins the board of a Russian entity called Rusnano, puts a billion rubles which is about 35-million-dollars into John Podestas company.
Now, what is Rusnano? Its not a private company. It is directly funded by the Kremlin. In fact, the Russian science minister called Rusnano Putins child.
So, you have the Russian government investing in one John Podestas business in 2011, while he is an advisor to Hillary Clinton at the State Department.
It gets deeper.
Schweizer went on to point out that Podesta went to the White House in 2013 to be a special counselor to Barack Obama.
That requires that you have financial disclosures every year. In his financial disclosure form in 2013, [Podesta] not only fails to disclose these 75,000 shares of stock that he has in Joule Energy which is funded in part by the Russian government.
He also fails to disclose that he is on one of the three corporate boards that this entity has. Its got this very complex ownership structure.
He discloses he is on the company in Massachusetts, that he is on the board of a company in the Netherlands, but he fails to disclose that he is also on the executive order of the holding company.
Thats a clear violation of the disclosure rules that needs to be looked at.

Sitting here hoping that Trump gets to this item on his voluminous ‘to do’ list soon.
There is no reason why a Special Prosecutor cannot be appointed to look into this accusations.
“Very complex ownership structure” means “front for money laundering operation.”
Democrats make this kind of "mistake" all the time. Then they say "oops" and move on.
Until some of these people are facing real jail time, they will never in form on the Clintons or Obama. Time to squeeze a bit.
they’re democrats, it’s okay for them to break the law without any consequences, NOT! No judge has the balls to charge any democrat for any crime they commit because they and their family members all like to keep breathing. This is our USA today.
This is worth re-reading:
4. `Clinton Cash’ and Democrat, NYT, ABC tag-teaming:
Amy Chozick from the NYT called us to indicate she had obtained a copy of the book on her own and intends to file a separate story tomorrow. Her story will not unpack all of the book’s claims she will do a more process-y story about the book’s existence, the fact that the publisher has approached multiple media outlets in advance of the book’s publication to spoon-feed them some of the book’s research, Clinton spokesman Brian Fallon wrote to other Clinton advisers.
He added, We think this story, though it was not originated by us, could end up being somewhat helpful in casting the book’s author as having a conservative agenda.
When the author, Peter Schweitzer, stumbled through an awkward interview with ABCs George Stephanopoulos himself a Clinton Foundation donor the comms team took a victory lap as they sent around the transcript.
“[G]reat work everyone. this interview is perfect. he lands nothing and everything is refuted (mostly based on our work), wrote spokesman Jesse Ferguson.
This is therapeutic to watch. George is cool as a cucumber, doesn’t rush into it, but just destroys him slowly but surely over the course of the interview, chimes in Nick Merrill.”
You can buy a lot of child ‘art’ with that much money...
Megan Rouse operates Megan Rouse Financial Planning from that same address. The inference is to money laundering, perhaps tax evasion. Suggests that Megan Rouse's father, John Podesta, hid stocks connected to Russia.
NOTE: Conspiring w/ a family member to hide income, launder illicit money, and evade taxes is a known scam---uncovered by the IRS in the UBS investigation.
IRS REFERENCE Offshore Tax-Avoidance and IRS Compliance Efforts
The IRS continues to uncover abusive tax-avoidance schemes involving offshore activity pertaining to Union Bank of Switzerland (UBS) investigation.
Russia Behind Fake News about Trump Russia Collusion?
It would put a monkey wrench in his plans for a stronger America and thus play into Putin’s hand. They are behind the fake US invented AIDS story, that the moon launch was faked and that the US blew up the twin towers on 9-11. These are all stories that the left buys into heavily. Why not?
Seems Podesta got rich trading on insider info, and are paid off......gettig powerful positions, lucrative lobbying referrals........and other gifts, like valuable stock in Russian-connected energy company (verified to date).
<><> Podesta chaired Hillary Clintons 2008 presidential campaign.
<><> Podesta is 2016 Hillary Clinton's campaign Chair.
<><> Podesta was President Bill Clinton's Chief of Staff 1998-2001.
<><> Podesta owns the Podesta Group with his brother Tony, a major lobbying firm (has a website).
<><> Podesta is Chair of the Center for American Progress, a Washington DC-based think tank.
<><> Podesta headed Obamas transition team in fall 2008.
<><> Podesta once served as Counselor to Obama.
<><> Podesta once worked at Hillary's State Dept.
<><> Podesta serves as the Clinton Foundation decision-maker.
<><> Podesta has been tapped for Hillary's COS, if elected.
<><> Podesta founded Progressive Media w/ CNN, HuffPo, MediaMatters, WaPo, Dem SPACs, etc.
Podesta as Bill Clinton's COS.
Podesta as Counsellor to Obama.
Podesta as Hillary's campaign manager
Such a nasty man.
Yes, he does not need to wait for Mueller to do this, he can do it himself. I don’t think the appointment limits his ability to go after Hillary and her cronies for corruption.
That whole “financial disclosure” thing only applies to Republicans.
