CAP, on my green corruption radar since 2010, is closely aligned with the White House, and John Podesta (CAP founder and former president) was the co-chairman of the Obama-Biden transition team. Tony Podesta, on the other hand, is a principal at the Podesta Group, which he started with his brother John, another large green entity, as Marita Noon (Townhall.com columnist) and I pointed out when covering their connection to the $737 million SolarReserve DOE loan, via our Special Seven Series, which we concluded last month.
Obviously, CAP and the Podesta bothers are heavily implicated here, as they have much to gain from renewable energy investments and anti-oil policies. Both Tony Podesta and his wife Heather, a Washington power couple, are frequent White House visitors who enjoy high rank in lobbying power, and Democrat bundling as well.
So the next time President Obama pledges to end corporate welfare for oil companies or any other industry for that matter, he may consider checking his party's suppliers and program lineup first; in other words, his back pocket.
