Democrat super-lobbyist Tony Podesta, brother of Clinton operative and Center for American Progress head John 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.
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 from foreign governments.
So, we may or may not have legitimate business dealings between the Trump Organization and private sector Russian companies and the Progressive Left is off the rails about a shady relationship between the Russians and Donald Trump.
But we have rock-solid evidence that the brother of Hillary Clinton's campaign manager took money to lobby our government on behalf of a foreign financial entity (mouth-piecing for a foreign government) for the lifting economic sanctions; the altering of foreign policy.
It is beyond clear that Progressives have taken control of the narrative machine (read: corporate media) and are deeply rooted in the Deep State (read: Fifth Column). Anyone still consuming news at face value is a blithering idiot, and their opinion on such issues should be disregarded.
