Podesta’s Kremlin-linked Company Loses Millions, Forced to Close When Hillary Lost Election

More evidence that Russia favored Hillary in the last election has come to light.  Joule, a mysterious energy company that received $35 million from Putin and the Kremlin, made a huge bet that Hillary Clinton would be elected president and that she and John Podesta would be in a position to boost the company and make them a small fortune.  But after Hillary lost, the company went belly up.

John Podesta was given 75,000 shares of Joule and was placed on the board of directors in order to ingratiate itself to Hillary Clinton, the candidate the Kremlin made a huge bet on winning the presidency.  They felt that she would continue the energy policies of Barack Obama and that Podesta would grease the wheels in order to enrich Joule and subsequently himself.  Without that support from the White House, the company could not stay afloat.

From The Daily Caller

Joule Unlimited, a secretive green energy company that appears to have placed a big bet hiring Democratic insider John Podesta to its board, appears to have been doomed when former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton lost the 2016 election.

When the 2016 presidential election ended, senior company executives admitted the prospects for their renewable energy “biofuels” company evaporated. “We had a lot of prospects last year,” former Joule CEO Brian Baynes told BioFuels Digest in a rare interview in July. “But those new investor prospects walked away, particularly post-election.”

Dmitry Akhanov, the president and CEO of Rusnano USA Inc., a Kremlin-ownedventure capital firm nicknamed “Putin’s child,” oversaw the Russian government’s investment in Joule and sat on its board along with two other Russians with ties to the Kremlin.  Akhavov agreed that Clinton’s loss doomed the company.

“We lined up investors who were willing to buy the bonds, but after the elections, with some statements from the new administration regarding potential uncertainty, the future support of biofuels was stopped,” he told The Daily Caller News Foundation in an interview. “The company was not able to do the deal and it was one of the reasons why the company was closed.” 

So, why would the Kremlin and Putin support Trump with all the money they invested in buying Clinton and Podesta?  They wouldn’t, naturally.  At worst, they would have waited until after the election before pouring $35 million into the company.

Every day, the Democrat narrative that Russia interfered in the election to defeat Hillary is falling apart.  News media outlets who were quick to publish the most outlandish lies in an attempt to damage President Trump are curiously silent on all of the money that made its way into the pockets of Hillary Clinton and her cronies.

Joule was excited about adding Podesta to their company and shortly thereafter Steven Chu of the Obama administration visited Joule with the encouragement of Podesta.

From the very beginning, Joule executives knew Podesta’s value. Bill Sims, one of Joule’s CEOs, was excited about landing Podesta and talked about “leveraging his insights” when he announced the board appointment.

“We look forward to leveraging his insights as we progress toward international deployment,” he declared.

As one of the biggest power players in Washington, Podesta could open doors for Joule. Obama’s first secretary of energy, Steven Chu, visited the company in November 2011, according to WikiLeaks.

Podesta told Chu’s chief of staff, Brandon Hurlbut, he was delighted with the upcoming Chu visit. “The gang is excited. I think he’ll be impressed,” he wrote in a Nov. 28, 2011, email released by WikiLeaks.

“I felt fortunate to be able to engage with a leading expert like John to get feedback, as I did with many other experts,” Hurlbut told McClatchy News for a 2016 article titled, “WikiLeaks emails show how Clinton’s campaign chief once opened doors for energy firm.”

Now, liberals, explain to me who the Kremlin wanted to win the 2016 presidential election.
