Guilty as Charged (DUH)


John Podesta and Maria Bartiromo Epic Fight Over Russia Ties: ‘Get Your Facts Straight!’

John Podesta is not just the former chairman of the Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, but also a central figure in the ongoing narrative of Russian meddling in the US election of 2016. His hacked emails were at the heart of what some have called a coordinated news campaign led by Wikileaks, and so he met with the House Intelligence panel yesterday behind closed doors.

This morning he appeared on Fox Business to discuss the Russian interference, allegations of collusion with Trump campaign and more with host Maria Bartiromo in what became a testy debate that perfectly exemplifies the divided positions that so many Americans hold right now.

Bartiromo, a long-time New York financial news figure has had something of a close relationship with Donald Trump for years, so it’s not a surprise that she consistently showed skepticism over the Russia claims in a defensive posture. And there may be no other individual (without the Clinton surname) that best embodies the Clinton’s web of influence — for good and bad — than Mr. Podesta.

Bartiromo aggressively attacked Podesta and Democrats for what she said were deeper ties with Russia, specifically asking about Podesta’s investment portfolio.

“Get your facts straight,” the former Clinton campaign chair shot back, before dismissing the FBN hosts claims as coming from a dubious source “like InfoWars.”

It went downhill from there.

Podesta gave as good has he got, successfully pivoting to a specific charge that Trump has appeared to follow the foreign policies of Vladimir Putin in a manner that one doesn’t typically see on a Fox News/Business channel.

It was a fascinating and fiery debate that will likely serve to reaffirm pre-existing political opinions for viewers going in. If you believe Podesta is full of beans, you will see that here. If you believe that Bartiromo is a shill for the Trump administration, there’s that too!

First, this disclosure:   Podesta is my  number one  suspect as the person who engineered the assassination of Seth Rich .

I stumbled upon this Fox Business shootout between  Money Honey and Podesta.  It's worth watching, if for no other reason than establishing a baseline
demeanor of Podesta lying.  I went scrambling for source information, with scant success, so I went to my number one source: Free Republic

"The 75,000 shares were in jueles energy, iirc. Which is domiciled in either belgium or netherlands"
And, there is, of course,  Wiki Leaks

I have never been a big fan of Maria's and I've never gotten the
whole "money honey bit" but having said that. . . I have to hand
it to her on that interview, she never backed down and kept
hammering him. Amazing how he knew "so much" about a Russian
company that only held 5% stock in something he was invested in.

Worse yet, is how this little puke, commie bastard get to testify
behind closed doors and then go out and profess everything he
didn't testify about and then spew more demoCrap talking points
about Russian involvement in the election.

There should be a conga line of these commie dem operatives lined
up before a "real committee" and grilled about their involvement in
back door corrupt dealings.

We need now, more than ever the return of the "Committee on
UnAmerican Activities". A Joe McCarthy wouldn't hurt either.
