Maria Bartiromo Has Early Fourth of July Cookout, Grilling John Podesta on His Own Deep Financial Ties to Russia

Succulent and juicy, and the steak turned out well too.

"Do you find it odd that there’s been so much attention on the Trump campaign and the Trump associates and potential collusion with the Russians, when it's really the Democrats who have deeper and stronger ties to Russia?" Bartiromo asked.

She then read off Podesta's various holdings and interests that were tied to Russian companies, stating that Podesta joined the board of a small energy company in 2011 which later received $35 million from a Kremlin-funded entity. According to Bartiromo, Podesta also own 75,000 shares in a Russian company and failed to disclose this to the Obama administration.


Podesta maintained that he divulged everything he was required to, "consistent with the advice I was given by the White House counsel." When he said that he divested before working at the White House, Bartiromo was quick to point out that he entrusted the company to his own family.

"But where did you divest it John? A lot of people feel that you divested it to your adult children," Bartiromo said.

Podesta said that the information Bartiromo was citing was false, and he rejected the idea that he ever owned stock in a Russian company. "I didn't have any stock in any Russian company so go back and get your facts straight Maria," he said.

"It's been widely reported that company is backed by The Kremlin," Bartiromo said....

"There's much deeper ties to Russia on the Democratic side then there are on the Republican side," said Bartiromo. "It's just a head scratcher that this is taking all the oxygen out of the room over Trump when, in fact, it’s been your team that has been in bed with the Russians."

The FRILF also asked him if the Democrat party had been "hijacked" by "extremists" like Lizzie Warren.
