Russian Bank Documents Indicate Hillary Clinton & John Podesta Should Answer About Their Ties to Russia
With all of the barking by the media about President Donald Trump’s ties to Russia with virtually no evidence to support such claims coming forth as of yet, some damning concrete evidence, in the form of documents, indicate that Hillary Clinton and John Podesta have some explaining to do when it comes to their ties to Russia.
Remember how Hillary Clinton used a fake story about a computer server at Trump Tower, which the Obama administration asked for a FISA court permission to wiretap, to brow beat then candidate Trump? You don’t? Here’s her tweet.

Investigative reporter Jerome Corsi uncovered some documents from a Russian bank that show how a Russian billionaire with close ties to Russian President Vladimir Putin paid huge financial payments to both John Podesta and the Clinton Foundation.
Jerome Corsi reports:
The money trail hunt begins with a document Infowars has obtained from the Russian Central Bank “Registry of Significant Control,” known generally as the “RSC Registry.”
This document traces the ownership of Metcombank, a relatively small Russian-domiciled bank located in the Russian Ural Mountains, to ownership by Viktor Vekselberg, a Russian billionaire with close ties to Putin.
As we shall see this document provides evidence of the circuitous path the Russian government has been using since Hillary Clinton was secretary of state to make large financial payments to John Podesta and to the Clinton Foundation.
Here are those documents.
The money laundering used to pay the Clinton Foundation is complicated, but Corsi explains it in his article, which involves a Netherlands-listed private company, Metcombank in Russia and offshore entities in the Cayman Islands, which were uncovered in the Panama Papers.
“Metcombank appears to be the bank Vekselberg has used to make transfers to the Clinton Foundation, with the money flowing first through the Moscow branch of Metcombank, and from there into Deutsche Bank and Trust Company Americas in New York City, finally ending up in a private bank account in the Bank of America that is operated by the Clinton Foundation,” writes Corsi.
Podesta’s payments are far more complicated, but they begin as he sat on the executive board of Joule Unlimited and which is tied to major Clinton Foundation donors. Corsi elaborated:
Podesta, it turns out, has been paid an undisclosed amount, starting in 2011, for serving on the executive board of Joule Unlimited that he neglected to report to regulatory authorities in the U.S., as well consulting fees from the Wyss Foundation, a group controlled by Swiss billionaire Hansjörg Wyss, an investor in Joule Energy.
In an Aug. 2016 report entitled “From Russia with Money,” the Government Accountability Institute noted that Podesta consulted for a foundation run by one of the investors in Joule Energy, Hansjörg Wyss, who in turn was a major Clinton Foundation donor.
Podesta was evidently paid $87,000 by the Wyss Foundation in 2013, according to federal tax records.
The GAI report also documented the Wyss Charitable Foundation has given between $1 million to $5 million to the Clinton Foundation.
Joule Global Stichting was established in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, on March 14, 2011.
John Podesta joined the Joule Global Stichting’s executive board on June 25, 2011. The Joule Global Stichting is a foundation, but it’s not strictly a foundation in the charitable sense.
A foundation of this type, a Dutch stichting, is a popular means for reducing one’s tax burden, as noted on the website of the Panamanian law firm Mossack Fonseca, which is at the heart of the Panama Papers investigation into offshore banking and money-laundering operations as archived and released by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists.
The Government Accountability Institute concluded that although Podesta is listed on the corporate records, he failed to disclose his membership on the board of Joule Global Stichting in his federal financial disclosure forms when he joined the Obama White House as a senior advisor.
To complete the circle, Vekselberg, the Renova Group, the Skolkovo Foundation, and Hansjörg Wyss all have ties to the Clinton Foundation, either as substantial donors or as participants in the Clinton Global Initiative.
Joule Global Stichting and Joule Global Holdings, N.V., also figure prominently as a client of Mossack Fonseca.
All of this is in addition to the Clintons selling Uranium Ore to the Russians. I would say that FBI Director James Comey needs to first be relieved of his duty, since he is closely tied to the Clinton and made millions because of it. Second, I would suggest the Department of Justice go over this documentation and investigate this and add this to a long list of corruption that the Clintons have been involved in. President Trump, when are we going to see you bring some justice against these criminals that you called “good people,” which you promised to do?
