    Election 2016: At the recent Democratic National Convention, the
    party of the donkey worked overtime at remaking Hillary
    Clinton's image from one of an ethically challenged political
    operator to one of a caring champion of children and families.
    But as new revelations about her shady dealings with Russia
    emerge, it may all be for nought.

    New revelations from Peter Schweizer, the author of the
    meticulously documented book "Clinton Cash," and Stephen K.
    Bannon, executive chairman of Breitbart, show that Hillary's
    campaign Chairman John Podesta "sat on the board of a small
    energy company alongside Russian officials that received $35
    million from a Putin-connected Russian government fund."

    Making things worse, Podesta never fully disclosed the
    relationship, as the law requires. But of greater concern than
    Podesta is what it says about Clinton's strange and mutually
    beneficial relationship with Russia that led to Clinton lending
    a hand in helping Vladimir Putin build Skolkovo, a high-tech
    community meant to be "the Russian equivalent of America's
    Silicon Valley."

    This is not some sort of free-enterprise experiment. As the
    authors detail in a study published by the Government
    Accountability Institute, some 30,000 workers toiled in the
    state-of-the-art tech hub "under strict governmental control."
    While Clinton was in charge at the State Department, the U.S.
    recruited a bunch of U.S. high-tech powerhouses -- including
    Google, Cisco and Intel -- to take part in the project. Of the
    28 companies from the U.S., Europe and Russia that took part, 17
    were donors to the Clinton Foundation or paid for Bill Clinton
    to give speeches.

    It's yet another stunning example of the Clinton Foundation's
    growing list of conflicts of interest, suggesting that Hillary
    used the State Department's offices to line her family's pockets
    through the Clinton Foundation. Don't forget that, with her
    email carelessness on her home-brew server during her tenure as
    secretary of state, Hillary has already exposed the United
    States' most secret information to the Russian government. As
    radio talk show host and law professor Hugh Hewitt noted Monday:
    "Hillary is already a Putin pawn."

    This was no accident. Nor was it innocent. FBI Assistant Special
    Agent Lucia Ziobro in 2014 sent a letter to several U.S.
    corporate participants in the project warning: "The (Skolkovo)
    foundation may be a means for the Russian government to access
    our nation's sensitive or classified research development
    facilities and dual-use technologies with military and
    commercial application."

    Ziobro continued, "The FBI believes the true motives of the
    Russian partners, who are often funded by the government, is to
    gain access to classified, sensitive, and emerging technology
    from the companies."

    Which brings us back to Podesta. He sat on the board of a tiny
    energy company named Joule Unlimited, write Bannon and
    Schweizer. A mere two months after he joined the board, Rusnano,
    founded by Vladimir Putin in 2007, invested $35 million in the
    company. Podesta sat on three separate boards of Joule-
    affiliated corporate entities, but only reported two.

    Moreover, Podesta's own leftist think tank, the Center for
    American Progress, got $5.25 million from a group called the Sea
    Change Foundation in the four years ending in 2013. Sea Change,
    in return, had received what the authors call "a large infusion
    of funds from a mysterious Bermuda-based entity called 'Klein
    Ltd.,' " which appears to have Russian ties.

    This puts Clinton's actions while in office under deep suspicion
    -- including her enabling a "reset" with Russia that seems to
    have led to a resurgent Russia expanding its military,
    diplomatic and economic power in Eastern Europe and the Mideast.

    In a wide-ranging interview with Chris Wallace on Fox News
    Sunday, Hillary suggested that Donald Trump "has shown a very
    troubling willingness to back up Putin, to support Putin,
    whether it's saying that NATO wouldn't come to the rescue of
    allies if they were invaded, talking about removing sanctions
    from Russian officials after they were imposed by the United
    States and Europe together, because of Russia's aggressiveness
    in Crimea and Ukraine, his praise for Putin which is I think
    quite remarkable."

    Extraordinary chutzpah.

    Last May, Clinton told MSNBC's Closing Bell that she had been
    the "most transparent public official in modern times." If you
    simply replaced "most" with "least" that statement would be
    true. What's sad is the mainstream media will once again do
    their best to cover up and ignore this latest scandal, which
    reeks of illicit payola. In other words, just another day in the
    ethically challenged campaign of Hillary Rodham Clinton.
