"Democrats Deep Ties To Russia & Ukraine Corruption!"
The Jimmy Dore Show (October 12, 2019)
"I showed you this before, three years ago. I showed that Hillary Clintion did an internal poll before the election and they found out that her biggest vulnerability was her connection with Russia and that Uranium deal that she did with them because they got a hundred and forty two million dollars into the Clinton Foundation just like Dylan Ratigan just said. They do all these deals. They get all this money into their foundation. They got a hundred and forty-two million dollars over that Uranium One thing, and people say all that's been debunked. It hasn't been debunked, that F...-ing corruption of the highest order. A hundred and forty-two million dollars. So now [Jullian Assange] is going to tell you the same thing. Watch this: [shows video clip of Julian Assange interview]
[0:55] Julian Assnge: "Hillary Clinton has done quite well strategically to try and draw a connection between Trump and Russia, because she has so many connections of her own. Now, my analysis of Trump and Russia is that there is no substantial connection. Why do I say that? Well, becuause Trump was trying to invest in Russia before Putin in the 1990s, after Putin, in fact nearly all the way up to the present moment. And he's had no success. He did not manage to build hotels and so on in Russia. So that shows how insubstantial his contacts are. There's an extremely well documented pattern of when Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State, those people, companies, governments who wanted a decision by the Secretary of State in their favor, making large donations to the Clinton Foundation or, in some other cases, business deals with people around Hillary Clinton.
One particular instance is the approval by Secretary Clinton of selling twenty percent of the US uranium reprocessing rights to a Russian company to be exported to Russia. So at that time a large donation was made by those Russian interests to the Clinton Foundation."
[2:30] Jimmy Dore: "142 million dollars. Alright. I'll stop it there. And I just want to say, once I played a drinking game where we had to take a shot every time Wikileaks had to retract something they published. Well, we were all a hundred percent sober."
Jimmy Dore: "He's telling the truth. And so, again, they want to talk about corruption with the Ukraine and Trump and it's all over them." [shows screen shot from New York Times]:
Russia Scandal Befalls Two Brothers: John and Tony Podesta
[shows headline from Washington Post]:
Amid swirl of controversy, Democratic power lobbyist Tony Podesta steps down
The Podesta Group is not named in the newly released [Mueller] indictments, but the company is one of two indirectly referenced in the charges.
Podesta and another lobbying firm, Mercury Public Affairs, were working with Manafort and his partner Rick Gages from 20102-2014 in lobbying to improve the image of the Ukrainian government.
[3:17] Jimmy Dore: "So Hillary Clinton's campaign manager's lobbying group was working with Paul Manafort who was Trump's campaign manager. Do you see this one-party shit corruption? Do you see what's happening?" [shows screen shot of Washington Post quote]:
Tony Podesta, a Democratic power lobbyist, announced to colleagues Monday that he is stepping down amid a series of indictments that cast a shadow on work his firm had done with Paul Manafort that may have benefited a Ukrainian regime friendly with the Kremlin.
"So Hillary Clinton's campaign manager working for the Kremlin, OK?" [shows screen shot of Washington Post quote]:
The Podesta Group and Mercury claimed in lobbying disclosure reports that they represented a Brussels-based nonprofit, the European Center for a Modern Ukraine, that sought to help Ukraine improve its image in the West from 2012 to 2014.
However, behind the scenes, the lobbying work was being directed by Manafort and Gates, prosecutors allege. -- Washington Post
[4:03] Jimmy Dore: "They didn't. What they were doing, they were working for f...-ing Manafort. And who was Manafort working for?
Their real client was the government of Ukraine, the indictment says. Gates and Manafort for many years represented the Party of Regions, a Russia-friendly political organization in Ukraine that was led by Victor Yanukovych, former president of the Ukraine who fled to Moscow in 2014.
"In 2012, Manafort and Gates solicited two Washington DC firms (Company A [the Podesta Group] and Company B [Mercury]) to lobby in the U.S. on behalf of Yanukovych and the Party of Regions, and the Government of Ukraine," the indictment said.
[4:46] Jimmy Dore: "So Hillary Clinton's campaign managers founded a lobbying group that was lobbying for the Kremlin inside the United States. That is the ties that Julian Assange is talking about. Also the 142 miilion dollars. Also, you know the biggest payout Bill Clinton ever got for one speech was five hundred thousand dollars. And do you know who gave it to him? The Kremlin bank gave it to him. So that's what Julian Assange is talking about. And what do they teach you? What did Machiavelli say? Whatever your biggest weakness is, you throw it on your opponent. And That's exactly what they did. And she had the help of the intelligence community and the media which the CIA has infiltrated. They all go right along with it."
"So watch this. Here is John Podesta, Hillary Clinton's campaign manager, who works for Bill Clinton his whole time in the White House, too. And watch him get taken down by ... [someone on Live Fox News Alert]
"Do you find it odd that there has been so much attention on the Trump campaign and the Trump associates and potential collusion with Russians when in fact it's really the Democrats who have deeper and stronger ties to Russia. I mean, John, I've got to ask about your own situation, your ties to Russian entities. You join the board of a small energy company in 2011. Two months later a Russian entity directly funded by the Kremlin invested thirty-five million dollars in the company. You were given 75,000 shares in a Russian company which you failed to disclose when you became an Obama associate Marin:
[6:36] Jimmy Dore: "Now all that is true. And now watch what he says:"
[John Podesta]: "It's not true. I disclosed in this ... completely compliant with ... and by the way, I divested before I went into the White House."
Lady Interrogator: "A lot of people think that you divested into your own children."
John Podesta: "I divested it consistent with my advice that I was given about the White House Councsel's office.
Jimmy Dore: "He gave his money to a fund that his daughter ran. And that's his divestment. He didn't divest. He gave it to his daughter. Here we go:"
John Podesta: "And I was fully compliant and fully transparent about what I had done. And the fact that you're picking through my emails that were stolen by the Russians and were released by Wikileaks ..."
[7:27] Jimmy Dore: "We have your emails. That's how we know it's true, John. Or were you lying in your emails? You shit, f...-ing liar."
John Podesta: "... getting a story which is not true is ... I didn't have stock in any Russian company. So go back and get your facts straight Maria. ..."
Maria: "John, We know tht you own 75,000 shares. You're on the board of ..."
John Podesta: "... not a Russian company. They list less than five pecent ... I didn't own any shares in that company, Maria ... "
Maria: "... its backed by the Kremlin ..."
John Podesta: "I didn't have any shares in any Russian company. I was on the board of an American company that did business here and only here. The Russian company had a small investment in that company and, you know, we can go round and round the tree ..."
Maria: "It's been widely reported that that company has been backed by the Kremlin and they gave you 75,000 shares that you had to disclose ..."
John Podesta: "They didn't give me ..."
[8:37] Jimmy Dore: "Now just imagine if this was Trump. Right? They'd be like: "Oh my god! We got him! He was on that board! He took the 35 million dollars! how many thousands ever never ever never another ... but again, this is the Democrats pretending. This is not going to work, this impeachment. It's not going to work. Hang on:"
John Podesta: [repeats a lot of the same disclaimers and then]: "Maybe you're getting your "widely reported" information from Infowars. ..
[9:39] Maria: "It is not. This is Politico. The New York Times. This is the Wall Street Journal. That's what I'm looking at, John. ... Then there's Hillary Clinton, of course, who got a hundred million dollars from Russian companies after she allowed that Russian company to acquire 20% of the U.S.'s uranium. The point I'm making here John, is that there's much deeper ties to Russia on the Democratic side than there on the Republican side and instead ..."
[10:05] Jimmy Dore: "That's just a fact. Trump wanted to do business in Russia but he's such a bad business guy he couldn't do it. But guess who did? John Podesta. Guess who also did: Hunter Biden" [shows screen shots from various articles]:
"We know from Podesta's own emails that Hillary Clinton bragged about being invited to "Putin's inner sanctum." We also know that Podesta did exercise 75,000 stock options and as a result gained "75,000 common shares" as a result of being a member of the executive board of engergy company Joule Unlimited." -- Gateway Pundit
During that time, Rusnano USA, the "Kremlin-financed company," Stone refers to, invested $35 million in Joule. Overall, Joule received approximately $200 million from outside investors. The parent company of Rusnano USA is JSC RUSNANO, which if a Russian state enterprise. -- McClatchy News Service
Jimmy Dore: "So the company he was on, Joule, its parent company is a Russian state enterprise. Do you see how deep their ties are?
Before leaving Joule in December 2014 to become a special advisor for the Obama administration, Podesta received 75,000 shares of common stock from the company, which he then transferred to Leonidio Holdings, a Delaware-based corporation managed by his daughter, Megan Rouse." -- Metabunk.org
[11:31]Jimmy Dore: "That's not divesting." [shows another screen shot quotation]:
"Podesta never claimed these stocks on his disclosure forms (attached) because, according to federal law, he was a "new entrant" into federal service, even though he had served in Bill Clinton's White House from 1993 to 2001." -- Metabunk.org
[11:47] Jimmy Dore: "So he could skirt that having to disclose that money because he was a "new entrant" into the Federal government." [shows more screen shots of quotes article]
So Podesta never received $35 million dollars while he worked for Obama or Clinton. His company did when he was a board member, from another company that was controlled by the Russian government. -- Metabunk.org
So, Podesta did not violate federal law. He is part of a larger problem in our country where former, high profile officials take advantage of the revolving door between government service and the corporate sector, and help shape the law to protect it.
Unethical? Probably. But not illegal. -- Metabunk.org
[12:29] Jimmy Dore: This shit is all going to come up. This is not NOT going to come up if they try to impeach Trump. OK. And by the way [shows screen shot of headline from The Hill]:
Let's get real: Democrats were first to enlist Ukraine in US elections.
... since at least 2016, Democrats repeadtedly have exerted pressure on Ukraine, a key U.S. ally for buffering Russia, to meddle in U.S. politics and elections.
As I have reported, the presssure began at least as early as January 2016, when the Obama White House unexpectedly invited Ukraine's top prosecutors to Washington to discuss fighting corruption in the country."
The meeting, promised as training, turned out to be more of a pretext for the Obama administration to pressure Ukraine's prosecutors to drop an investigation into the Burisma Holdings gas company that employed Hunter Biden and to look for new evdidence in a then-dormant criminal case against eventual Trump campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, a GOP lobbyist. -- The Hill
[13:32 ] Jimmy Dore: "So, Obama is pressuring Ukraine to not investigate Hunter Biden, but to investigate Manafort for the exact shit they're accusing Trump of doing right fucking now.".
Valeriy Chaly, the Ukraininan ambassador to the United States at the time, confirmed to me in a statement issued by his office that, in March 2016, a contractor for the Democratic National Committee (DNC) pressed his embassy to try and find any Russian dirt on Trump and Manafort that might reside in Ukraine's intelligence files. -- The Hill
[14:01] Jimmy Dore: "They were f...-ing doing it. Yes!"
The DNC contractor also asked Chaly's team to try to persuade Ukraine's president at the time, Petro Poroshenko, to make a statement disparaging Manafort when the Ukrainian leader visited the United States during the 2016 election.
Chaly said his embassy rebuffed both requests because it recognized they were improper efforts to get a foreign government to try to influence the election against Trump and for Hillary Clinton. -- The Hill
[14:28] Jimmy Dore: "So there it is. Again. It's f...-ing the exact opposite. People think 'god created us in his own image and likeness.' No, We created god in "OUR" own f..-ing image and likeness. And that's exactly what happened here. THEY invented Russiagate because THEY'RE the f...-ing Russiagaters. They're the ones in bed with Russia, and they're the corrupt mother f...-ers doing all these deals with "energy companies"."
"And now all they can do is say 'Infowars' or say you're a conspiracy theorist. Watch this. This guy tries to say .. [shows video clip from rising (The Hill)]
[15:03] Rep. Brad Schneider: "Again, this puts at risk our national security
[voice]' 'Yes. I think we unerstand your position quite clearly. Let's make it a future event. If a Democrat wins the White House, should their Vice President have a child who serves on a foreign energy company's board with interests in the United States?"
Rep. Brad Schneider: "We can talk about what people should be allowed to invest in, what jobs they should be allowed to take ...
Jimmy Dore: "We're talking about it right now, fuck face. We are talking about it. He just asked you about it. Should that be OK? 'Well, we'll tall about it.' No. We're talking about it right now. So that's how these people are tricking him and they're thinking it's a real news show. It's not a real news show. Its just these two m.f.ers you'd like to ask real questions."
"So this is not going to work, right? This is their strategy and here he is as he calls it a conspiracy ...
"... so that the President has historically long been involved with conspiracy theories. This is yet another conspiracy. See you can't lose sight of the simple ..."
"We did in fact know that Hunter Biden earned $50,000 [per month] on this board. That's not a conspiracy theory. We know that he has little to no experience in Ukrainian energy sector, so is that unseemly. Is that the type of thing that we should be accepting from prominent Democrats?
Again. That's a separate issue.
The Democrats are more corrupted than Trump, for fuck's sake. It's unbelievable. And do you want to know about Biden's kid in China? Watch
Stuff about Hunter Biden and dealings with China ...
Stuff about George W. Bush ...
Stuff about elizabeth Warren ...
... other comedians on stage chip in ...
... Haitians protesting HRC ... "Where's the money? ...
... Nancy Pelosi's son, Paul ...
Your son got a $50,000/month gig with a Ukraine gas compnay months after you backed a coup there, and a lucrative deal in China after you flew him there on Air Force Two. I can't think of a worse person to try to challenge Trump on 'integrity' -- Aaron Mate Tweet
