Jason Chaffetz (R. Ut) has spent the last several years of his Congressional career leading the charge in investigating Hillary Clinton over her role in the Benghazi Scandal and her usage of a private email server while Secretary of State. Interesting then, that he has no interest in investigating our current President, who is apparently a Russian operative.
Wonder why Chaffetz would hold such a position, other than party loyalty? Perhaps it’s because his biggest political donor, which is an illegal pyramid scheme in the first place, has deep business ties to Russia, according to a new report.
According to the Palmer Report:
It’s long been documented that Nu Skin Enterprises has been funding the election and reelection campaigns of Jason Chaffetz so thoroughly and for so long that the company all but officially owns him (source: Open Secrets).
On the surface it makes logical sense: Nu Skin is a Utah based company, and Chaffetz is a Utah based politician. But it turns out there’s much more to it. Although you may have heard of the Nu Skin brand, the company itself is little more than a pyramid scheme. In fact it’s been busted by the federal government for being a pyramid scheme, to the tune of tens of millions of dollars in penalties. But that’s just the beginning of the problem.
Not only is Nu Skin a pyramid scheme, it’s an international one. For instance, in addition to being busted the the U.S. government for being a stateside pyramid scheme, it’s also been busted by the U.S. for corrupt business practices in China (source:Reverb Press). But here’s the kicker: Palmer Report has discovered that Nu Skin also runs its pyramid scheme in Russia and Ukraine.
We know this because Nu Skin has a verified Facebook page (note the blue check mark) which is titled “Nu Skin Russia and Ukraine” and is specifically dedicated to expanding into those two nations.
It can be argued that the reason Chaffetz does want to use his House Oversight Chair position investigate Trump’s financial ties to Russia is because it could expose NuSkin’s scheme and drag his name right into the middle of it. NuSkin basically owns Jason Chaffetz
So a prominent GOP member of Congress is in cahoots with companies that do major business in Russia? Say it ain’t so!
This Russia rabbit hole continues to get deeper by the day, folks.
