Now we might have a link to some American exposures from the famous Panama Papers.

Its possible somebody high up in the Clinton Campaign might be remotely connected.

John Podesta is the Chairman of the 2016 Hillary Clinton presidential campaign.

Looks like his brother Tony Podesta, is somehow involved with a lobby firm that might be involved with Russian banks !!

Tony Podesta is also a known Clinton bundler.


‘Panama Papers’ Implicate Client of Clinton-Linked Lobbying Firm


Podesta Group registered to lobby for bank subsidiary weeks before tax haven leak

A firm with ties to senior members of the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign registered to lobby on behalf of a major Russian bank just weeks before a massive leak exposed the bank’s role in a web of secret financial dealings that have enriched members of Russian president Vladimir Putin’s inner circle.

The “Panama Papers” are being called “the Wikileaks of the mega-rich.” Corporate documents leaked from the law firm Mossack Fonseca show how world leaders have used offshore tax havens to hide their involvement in lucrative companies and business deals around the world.

Among those companies is the Russian Sberbank, whose U.S. investment banking branch recently enlisted the services of the Podesta Group. According to its lobbying registration form, the firm will work on banking, trade, and foreign relations issues.


This could break wide open

Well this answers my question in your other thread. But we all know nothing will come of this. The media may act with shock and awe and there may be demand for some punishment, and perhaps there will be a punishment, but do any of us believe the punishment will be lasting or even carried out?

The Clinton's found to be even more corrupt?

And the brother of John, just two steps removed,
always plausible deniability...Slick Willie and all.

Well the problem is none of this is actually illegal.

It's all perfectly legal and permissible because we all live in countries that allow it.

So nobody is going to be arrested, nobody is going to jail. The only person who has broken the law is the person who leaked it all in the first place.

Which is... yeah. It's the problem.

No. The "elite" could never do such a thing, as to punish themselves. This is murica!

Well there you go. Even if they were "punished" they would simply be gifted something in return..

True but they might resign. "Iceland's prime minister to resign amid Panama Papers controversy"

Or have a harder time being re elected.
Too bad any relation won't stand with Hillary or we'll see if it does.

The finger is pointing at Soros, who funds the ICIJ via the Open Society Foundations as well as the Ford Foundation and other groups. Maybe it's a way of blackmailing world leaders or stopping others from gaining too much money and power.

Soros could be targeting Russia's "interests"

He has always wanted to get his claws into the Russian oil and gas companies.

Very clever way to make his move I would say.

I find it interesting that many (most) of those who looked for tax shelters are from socialist countries.
