House intel panel interviews Podesta in Russian Federation probe

House intel panel interviews Podesta in Russian Federation probe House intel panel interviews Podesta in Russian Federation probe

Stone said that he specifically wanted to counter Podesta in his testimony.

Hillary Clinton's 2016 campaign chairman met with the House Intelligence Committee in a behind-closed-doors meeting on June 27 amid breaking news that Democrats and the Obama administration knew well before the election of Russia's attempted meddling. Committee members declined to comment on the discussion to reporters as they left the panel's secure hearing room.

In a statement to the Associated Press, Buschel said the political operative has been "much-maligned by innuendo and misinformation" regarding the investigations into possible collusion between Trump's campaign and Russian Federation.

Stone split with Trump's campaign back in 2015, but warned the public about an October surprise about Hillary Clinton before Podesta's emails were leaked, suggesting he had forewarning. He accused Obama of having "colluded or obstructed", without providing evidence.

His personal email account was breached by hackers and the contents released in batches on the anti-secrecy platform WikiLeaks in the lead-up to the November 8 election, a steady drip-drip-drip of minor revelations that were politically damaging to Clinton.

You don't have to be a conspiracy-monger to believe that there is more to the Obama administration's lack of response to Russian hacking than has been revealed to date. In a January 6 report, USA intelligence agencies said they believed that Russian Federation was behind the hacking of the emails.

Podesta also defended the Obama administration's response, saying that they were "dealing with an unprecedented. weaponization of the fruits of Russian cyber activity, and I think they were trying to make the best judgments they could on behalf of the American people".

The Post reported that intelligence agencies told the then-president in July 2016 that Russian President Vladimir Putin had personally ordered the officials to attempt to influence the election to aid Trump's victory.

The Democratic National Committee (DNC) and Podesta were among several Democratic Party groups and individuals targeted in a hacking campaign that U.S. intelligence and political leaders have blamed on Russian Federation.
