Hillary Clinton and John Podesta Alleged to be Involved in Money Laundering Scheme with Russia


Could it be that allegations from the left that President Trump engaged in nefarious and illegal dealings with Russia were just a cover for Democratic leaders actual criminal activities? It looks like that just might be the case.

Today Infowars investigative journalist Jerome Corsi met with former vice-head of Armed Services Committee and the House Homeland Security Committee, Curt Weldon, to discuss his committees’ deep research into the Clinton technology transfers to Russia in exchange for Clinton Foundation donations.  Weldon validated much that is presented in the following article, which is part one of a series of investigative articles coming out over the upcoming week based on intel by Weldon and other sources:

There's the Clinton Foundation, once again implicated in illegal actions. The thing is like a beacon signalling corruption. To put it simply, if you want to find evidence of corrupt and illegal activities, just look for where the Clinton Foundation is in action.

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congress may want to examine concrete evidence showing Russian President Vladimir Putin paying Hillary Clinton and John Podesta for a long time before the mainstream media goes even more overboard trying to fabricate a tie between Putin and President Donald Trump.

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.

Nothing has been proven — yet — but none of this would be a surprise here either.

The entire web is incredibly complicated and untangling it goes way beyond what we can do here. We can, however, give you a few insights should you not be prepared to wade through the voluminous original documents.

As the RSC Registry makes clear, Vekselberg has been paying Clinton and Podesta through a complicated money laundering scheme involving Metcombank in Russia, with payments tracing back to the Renova Group, a Russian-based energy and investment international conglomerate also owned by Vekselberg.

The funds rediverted to Clinton and Podesta through the Renova Group and Metcombank originate in large part from Rusnano — a state-owned investment fund owned by the Russian government. Conveniently, Vekselberg is a board member for Renova.

The entire scheme involves a Netherlands-listed private company that plays prominently into the international money laundering the Russian government has been conducting through offshore entities in the Cayman Islands, as documented by the Panama Papers.

Money laundering schemes created by professional criminals are typically complicated.  To begin understanding the RSC registry on Metcombank, note that the bottom box on the chart (second page) makes clear that Vekselberg effectively owns 100 percent of Metcombank.

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.

How Putin paid Podesta is more complicated.

John Podesta, the campaign chairman of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton during her 2016 presidential run. Podesta has deep ties to Russia despite blaming President Trump of the same.

The complication begins when we examine the RSC Registry and realize that Vekselberg owns Metcombank through a series of intermediary companies, starting with the Renova Group, a Russian corporate conglomerate with interests in oil, energy, and telecommunication that lists Vekselberg as chairman of the board.

The Renova Group owns and operates Renova Assets Ltd., a private investment company headquartered in the Bahamas for which Bloomberg lists no key executives, board members, or members of the executive committee.

Conveniently, Vekselberg also has ties to Rusnano, the Russian State Investment Fund, via his ownership and management of the Renova Group in Russia.

In 2011, Vekselberg directed Rusnano to make a $35 million investment into Joule Unlimited, a small Massachusetts-based energy company, owned by Joule Global Holdings, N.V., in the Netherlands, with Joule Global Stichting, the ultimate controlling entity.

Just look at that tangled mess, and we've only scratched the surface. We see multiple entities sloshing money around through multiple jurisdiction such as the Cayman Islands all allegedly to get money from Russian entities to Mrs. Clinton, Mr. Podesta, and the Clinton Foundation.

If you were asked to make up a scheme for money laundering from scratch just to illustrate how one might be constructed, you would likely create something like what we have here. There are that many transactions and players in this story that are so typical to criminal money-laundering schemes.

If Mrs. Clinton and Mr. Podesta were charged with money laundering, racketeering, and even treason, that would be so classic. Here they have been screaming about all the alleged misdeeds of Donald Trump while they would have been doing far worse. Ironic, but not particularly surprising if true.
