Recently it was revealed that Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta has connections to Russian government owned investment firm. To make matters worse it was also shown that Podesta has been trying to hide this link from the United States government.

Podesta was elected to the U.S.-based solar energy startup Joule Unlimited's board of directors five years ago, with the idea that they would be able build international relationships necessary for long-term success, reports The Wall Street Journal.

Podesta did just exactly that as soon as he was elected to the board. Only a few months after he was elected to the board the Russian firm Rusnano revealed their plan to invest nearly $35 million in the solar company. Only a few months after that Joule invited Rusnano’s chairman Anatoly Chubais to be on the board of directors.

At right around the same time Podesta joined then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s Foreign Affairs Policy Board, without any concern of a potential conflict of interests. Of course the idea seemed to change when he decided to take the position of counselor to President Barack Obama.

WikiLeaks published the hacked emails from 2014 last week showing Podesta asking for his shares in Joule be transferred to a newly created entity called Leonidio Holdings, LLC.

The Clinton campaign confirmed this claim on Wednesday when they spoke to reporters. They did however claim that Podesta's children owned the entity and that the purpose of this was to recuse "himself from all matters pertaining to Joule for the duration of his time at the White House."

The main issue with all of this is that Podesta paid the bill for Leonidio’s incorporation in Delaware as revealed by paid for a number of legal work performed for Joule in 2005 by a law firm hired by Leonidio.

To make matters even worse, the legal work had to do with appointing another Rusnano official to Joule’s board of directors. Peter Schweizer, author of the best seller "Clinton Cash," says that this is part of a conspiracy.

He calls out Podesta for the formation of Leonidio Holdings, LLC, saying that this was just a facade so that Podesta could still be active with Joule.

Now due to the contemporary disclosure laws this facade has been revealed for what it really is.

Please share this story on Facebook and show Podesta's connections that he tried so desperately to hide.
