Just when you thought Trump had issues with Russian ties to Putin, now comes Peter Schweizer, author of Breitbart’s Clinton Cash, the crappy docudrama short on specifics and high on buzzwords, telling readers in the Wall Street Journal no less, that Hillary Clinton has deep ties to Russia as well. So ignore those Trump Putin issues and focus if you will on Hillary Clinton and her Russian ties instead.
The Kremlin committed $5 billion over three years to fund Skolkovo. Mrs. Clinton’s State Department worked aggressively to attract U.S. investment partners and helped the Russian State Investment Fund, Rusnano, identify American tech companies worthy of Russian investment. Rusnano, which a scientific adviser to President Vladimir Putincalled “Putin’s child,” was created in 2007 and relies entirely on Russian state funding.
Russians tied to Skolkovo also flowed funds to the Clinton Foundation. Andrey Vavilov,the chairman of SuperOx, which is part of Skolkovo’s nuclear-research cluster, donated between $10,000 and $25,000 (donations are reported in ranges, not exact amounts) to the Clinton’s family charity. Skolkovo Foundation chief and billionaire Putin confidant Viktor Vekselberg also gave to the Clinton Foundation through his company, Renova Group.
Amid all the sloshing of Russia rubles and American dollars, however, the state-of-the-art technological research coming out of Skolkovo raised alarms among U.S. military experts and federal law-enforcement officials. Research conducted in 2012 on Skolkovo by the U.S. Army Foreign Military Studies Program at Fort Leavenworth declared that the purpose of Skolkovo was to serve as a “vehicle for world-wide technology transfer to Russia in the areas of information technology, biomedicine, energy, satellite and space technology, and nuclear technology.”
Moreover, the report said: “the Skolkovo Foundation has, in fact, been involved in defense-related activities since December 2011, when it approved the first weapons-related project—the development of a hypersonic cruise missile engine. . . . Not all of the center’s efforts are civilian in nature.”
Most of this lunacy is featured in the Clinton Cash documentary, so this is only surprising in that a guy from Breitbart can get an article published in the Wall Street Journal. As for Peter Schweizer, well this is pretty much all one needs to know about him below, from his wiki page:
As a political communications expert, Schweizer’s notable clients have included Sarah Palin, and he advised her on foreign policy
Oh, so is he the one who told her to say she could see Russia from her house? Oh, Ok, well, if he advised her on foreign policy, which she never figured out, then you can pretty much believe he doesn’t know jack about jill..
