Video: Fed Chair Jerome Powell was seriously fooled into thinking he was talking to President Zelensky by a couple of internet pranksters
· Apr 28, 2023 ·

Here's the video of the head of the Federal Reserve being tricked by a couple of Russian pranksters called Vovan and Lexus into thinking he's having a conversation with Ukrainian President Zelensky.

He discussed a possible recession, raising interest, and other plans within the Federal Reserve all while thinking he was talking to the real Zelensky.

This is the man in charge of world central banking and ALL of your money. And he was completely duped by a couple of Russian knuckleheads.

He could have just spouted out secret and confidential information on this call (he did reveal some new info that hadn't yet been reported!). Not for a second did he even question its validity.

And NO ONE in his organization seemed to either.

How the heck did they schedule this and not figure out what was up?

A Fed spokesperson acknowledged the call on Thursday morning in a statement to Bloomberg.

"Chair Powell participated in a conversation in January with someone who misrepresented himself as the Ukrainian president," they said. "It was a friendly conversation and took place in a context of our standing in support of the Ukrainian people in this challenging time. No sensitive or confidential information was discussed."

The spokesperson added that "the matter has been referred to appropriate law enforcement, and out of respect for their efforts, we won't be commenting further."

Oh, well, they did it out of their unwavering support of Ukraine. So everything is cool.

Remember when we used to have accountability in this country?

The full video released by the comedy duo is 16 minutes long and can be seen on Rumble.
