So, this is interesting. A Dem Super Lobbyist?

http://dailycaller.com/2017/03/06/exclusive-dem-super-lobbyist-podesta-g...

Oh My.

Democrat super-lobbyist Tony Podesta was paid $170,000 over a six-month period last year to represent Sberbank, Russia’s largest bank, seeking to end one of the Obama administration’s economic sanctions against that country, The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group has learned.

Podesta? Podesta? Where have I heard that name before?

Podesta, founder and chairman of the Podesta Group, is listed as a key lobbyist on behalf of Sberbank, according to Senate lobbying disclosure forms. His firm received more than $24 million in fees in 2016, much of it coming from foreign governments, according to the nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics.

Podesta is the brother of John Podesta, who was the national campaign chairman for former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s losing 2016 campaign for the presidency. Former President Barack Obama imposed the sanctions following the Russian seizure of the Crimean region of Ukraine in 2014.

Please do not tell me about the Clinton Foundation or Global Initiative. Pure as the driven snow because they told me so.

They're all corrupt. Don't care D or R. So today we learn that the CIA can run false flag cyber attacks pretending they're Russia or China or NK or who the fuck ever.

Guess when the brothers get together we know who picks up the check.

We are in dangerous waters...

Who's to know if 'evidence' is genuine, or has an added electronic 'fingerprint' to distract/shift blame?

@Bollox Ref I trust nothing coming from the US government... most especially the known liars in the security community... without it being independently verifiable. So in order to convince me of something they will need to release way more information than they would ever be willing to do.

In the mean time, I assume they are lying about everything.

A lot of wanderers in the U.S. political desert recognize that all the duopoly has to offer is a choice of mirages. Come, let us trudge towards empty expanse of sand #1, littered with the bleached bones of Deaniacs and Hope and Changers.

The Sberbank-Podesta relationship goes back many years. Sberbank was the lead financial institution in the Russian deal to purchase Uranium One, owned by one of Bill Clinton’s closest friends, Frank Giustra.

Giustra and Bill Clinton lead the Clinton-Giustra Enterprise Partnership, an integral part of the Clinton Foundation. Giustra has additionally donated $25 million to the Clinton Foundation.

Giustra sought to sell his stake in uranium reserves that included ore deposits in the Western United States, and Hillary Clinton, who as secretary of state, approved the sale. And in one felled swoop, 20 percent of America’s uranium ore was sold to the Russian state atomic agency.

During the pending sale, the Podesta Group represented Giustra’s company and tried to advance the transaction.

Why aren't they in jail?

Economic: -9.13, Social: -7.28,

so it could later pretend it had been Russia all along and thus remove Trump as president? Because this was a lot easier than just stopping Trump from winning in the first place?

What?

And Wikileaks's revelations said the CIA could hack somebody and make it look like someone else had done it. Not that they could make something that wasn't a hack look like someone else had done it. That doesn't even make sense.

I really can't believe the naïveté of some of the Russia threads. The DNC is a bad guy, so their enemies must be good guys. Mm-hmmm. Look, Hillary is a crook, the neocons still want war, the DNC is a team of grifters and Donald Trump is in bed with the fucking Russians just as he has openly been for years. They are all bad actors. The entire elite has failed, not just part of it.

I think if not for the Clintons, Obama would have been a better President.

Beware the bullshit factories.

greed is as strong and inbred in that family as it is the Clintons. And I'm not singling them out, not at all. You can't move more than 2 inches in any given direction in DC without running into another rat bastid as greedy and power hungry as they are. It Is 'the nature of the beast'. Politics is a psycho-/sociopaths playground. Only those willing to stoop to anything come out on top.

As Bruce Hornsby says "That's Just the Way It Is".

@peachcreek
counts. And just as they would have gotten tax breaks up the gump stump from the Clinton creature they'll now be getting them from the orange two-legged freak show. And it doesn't matter to them one bit who/where they come from just as long as none of it goes to the Great Unwashed. So it is what it is.
