Hillary linked to The “Panama Papers” Players
by John Falkenberg
Clinton is corrupt — and we’ve all known it for a long time. However, with the revelation of the Panama Papers,
A Russian bank and a billionaire that were outed in the soon-to-be-historical publication both have connections to the Democrat front-runner. One is through a lobbying firm connected to the Clintons, and another through Sidney Blumenthal, her longtime friend and adviser.
Clinton is also tied to the Podesta Group, a lobbying firm founded by a Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta and his brother. That group has links to Sberbank, which happends to be Russia’s largest bank.
The Panama Papers document offshore bank accounts set up by a law firm in Panama and allegedly reveal connections between Russian President Vladimir Putin and his inner circle with other international figures using the offshore tax havens. The governments of at least four nations have vowed investigations into possible tax evasion.
The Washington Free Beacon first reported the connection and that Sberbank registered with the Podesta Group last month to lobby against economic sanctions against Russia and those in the U.S. who would trade in their stocks and bonds.
Former Georgian Prime Minister and current billionaire Bidzina Ivanishvili has also been denounced as a result of the document leak. If that name sounds familiar to you, it may be so because he showed up in the Hillary Clinton email dump. That email also connected — surprise, Sidney Blumenthal.
According to The Daily Caller, Blumenthal played middle man between Clinton and Ivanishvili, who ousted the former prime minister and U.S. ally Mikheil Saakashvili.
Hillary Clinton is not directly named in the Panama Papers; however, her connections to these two crucial players are turning people’s heads — and should.
