Fox News reporter Maria Bartiromo, interviewed John Podesta where she went on the attack over his Russian business ties.
Putting Podesta on the defensive, Bartiromo didn’t hold back as she pummeled him with questions while he vigorously denied any wrong doing.
Bartiromo said, “Do you find it odd that there’s been so much attention on the Trump campaign and the Trump associates and potential collusion with Russians, when in fact it’s really the Democrats who have deeper and stronger ties to Russia?”
“I have got to ask you about your own situation, your own ties to Russia entities,” she said. “You joined the board of a small energy company in 2011. Two months later, a Russia entity, directly funded by the Kremlin, invested $35 million in the company. You were given 75,000 shares in a Russian company, which you failed to disclose when you became an Obama associate.”
Podesta said Bartiromo’s her claims were incorrect and that he divested his stake in the company and was completely “transparent” with the Obama administration about his business dealings.
“But where did you divest it, John? A lot of people feel like you divested it to your adult children,” Bartiromo hit back.
“I divested it consistent with the advice I was given by the White House counsel’s office,” Podesta responded, later adding, “Get your facts straight!”
Podesta claimed he didn’t receive 75,000 shares from a “Russian” company because the actual company he was affiliated with was American-based.
“It’s backed by the Kremlin,” Bartiromo said.
