If you didn’t see Maria Bartiromo completely unnerve Podesta over Russia ties, you’re missing out

He was all ready to claim Kremlin interference in the 2016 presidential campaign, but got all uppity when confronted with his own alleged financial ties to the Russian republic.

Former Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta left the lions’ den of Fox Business Network’s Maria Bartiromo Thursday still alive — but just barely.

Bartiromo set the stage for the segment by asking Podesta what happened to the 75,000 shares of Joule Energy stock he was given but failed to disclose when he joined the Obama administration as counselor to the president.

“It’s not a Russian company,” Podesta claimed.

“It’s backed by the Kremlin,” Bartiromo retorted.

“I did not have any stock in any Russian company, so go back and get your facts straight, Maria,” Podesta fired back, clearly irritated by the questioning.

“I was on the board of an American company that did business here and only here,” Podesta said, before admitting, “The Russian company had a small investment in that company.”

The exchange took place two days after Podesta testified on Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election in a closed hearing before the House Intelligence Committee. Wikileaks released tens of thousands of Podesta’s emails, which allegedly came from a Russian hacker.

Another Russian connection involved Hillary Clinton directly. She authorized a Russian company to acquire 20 percent of the U.S.’ uranium capacity while she served as secretary of state and received $100 million from Uranium One, the Russian company that benefitted from the transaction.

On the other hand, although Democrats and the press have been claiming collusion between the Donald Trump presidential campaign and the Kremlin, no proof has been presented.

“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.”
