Oh, I meant the Clinton campaign:

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-03-09/russias-largest-bank-confirms-hiring-podesta-group-lobby-ending-sanctions

Quote
Russia's largest bank, Sberbank, has confirmed that it hired the consultancy of Tony Podesta, the elder brother of John Podesta who chaired Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign, for lobbying its interests in the United States and proactively seeking the removal of various Obama-era sanctions, the press service of the Russian institution told TASS on Thursday.

"The New York office of Sberbank CIB indeed hired Podesta Group. Engagement of external consultants is part of standard business practices for us," Sberbank said.

As the Caller puts it, "the discovery of high-profile Democrats like Podesta being paid lucrative fees for lobbying to lift U.S. sanctions on Russia contrasts with charges from Democrats that President Donald Trump and his key aides are soft on Russia while the Obama administration was tough on Moscow."

Podesta is one of the Democrat’s highest profile lobbyists who enjoys close personal and business connections to former Presidents Obama and Bill Clinton. John Podesta was chief of staff in Clinton’s White House and special counselor in the Obama White House.

Quote
Some more details on the meeting: joining the Podesta lobbying campaign was David Adams, who describes himself on the Podesta Group website as a “trusted adviser” to Hillary Clinton, serving as her as assistant secretary of state for congressional affairs. Another Podesta lobbyist was Stephen Rademaker, a former Department of State official in the George W. Bush administration. The Podesta Group represented Sberbank and its subsidiaries, Troika Dialog Group in the Cayman Islands, SBGB Cyprus Ltd in Nicosia, Cyprus, and SB International in Luxembourg. Troika Dialog also was related to Klein, Ltd., a Cayman Island organization that once funneled tens of millions of dollars to environmental groups to oppose low-cost fracking in the U.S., which was hurting the Russian oil industry.

Regular readers will recall that the Sberbank-Podesta relationship goes back many years. Sberbank was the lead financial institution in the Russian deal to purchase Uranium One, owned by one of Bill Clinton’s closest friends, Frank Giustra. Giustra and Bill Clinton lead the Clinton-Giustra Enterprise Partnership, an integral part of the Clinton Foundation. Giustra has additionally donated $25 million to the Clinton Foundation.

Podesta is pure scum and pure communist!

I second that.  I had forgotten all about that and that is a very important key element of the Clinton connection.

Not too sure I would agree with you on that one.  I'm fed up with hearing how crooked the Clintons have been and nothing ever being done about it.  I'm good with having them fade into the sunset, never having to see or hear from them ever again...Obama too.

Oh - what fun is that. We've had to wallow in their dung for many, many years. Now that they're no longer in the stratosphere, maybe their vulnerable to being subjected to the same laws the rest of us keep. I sure hope HilLIARy no longer has a clearance - that's a simple decision. Then there's the other crimes they've committed that beg attention. Maybe they can live in their own shit for awhile. Ten years would about do it.

Oh, I would love nothing more than to see the Bammy's and Clintons fade away, but defnitely not the case.  Hillary continues to open her yap about losing and she's not done yet and Bammy has been busy expanding his shadow government.

They both need to be held responsible, I know it's never going to happen, but one can always hope.
