Things got tense this week when former Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta appeared on Fox Business Network and was asked about 75,000 shares of stock he allegedly owns in a Kremlin-backed company.
Fox News reported that host Maria Bartiromo asked Podesta to explain what he did with the 75,000 shares of stock in Joule Energy he was given and failed to disclose when he joined Barack Obama’s White House as an advisor to the president.
“It’s not a Russian company,” Podesta said.
“It’s backed by the Kremlin,” Bartiromo shot back.
“I did not have any stock in any Russian company, so go back and get your facts straight, Maria,” Podesta snapped. “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.”
On Tuesday, Podesta testified on Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election before the House Intelligence Committee in a closed hearing. During the 2016 election, Wikileaks released tens of thousands of the Clinton campaign chair’s emails after Russia hacked the Democratic National Committee.
While she was Secretary of State, Clinton let a Russian company to acquire 20 percent of the U.S.’ uranium capacity. After doing this, she was awarded $100 million from the Russian company, Uranium One.
“There’s much deeper ties to Russia on the Democratic side than there are on the Republican side,” Bartiromo said. “It’s your team that has been in bed with the Russians.”
