Remember when the DNC servers were hacked and they refused to let the FBI investigate the crime — clearly because of all of their crimes which that hack revealed? Yeah, that’s about to bite John Podesta.
John Podesta has just been ordered to appear before the House Intelligence Committee for an interview. This means he’s going to be put under oath and at the mercy of the Committee’s questions! (via The Washington Examiner)
One of the first questions I imagine the House Intelligence Committee is going to have for him is why he didn’t allow the FBI to investigate the DNC hacking.
There is just no good answer that doesn’t implicate him in a crime. And, because Podesta’s personal emails were leaked by Wikileaks the House Intelligence Committee could delve into that closet too.
They could ask him about Seth Rich. They could ask him what he meant by “making an example” of someone. They could grill him on what he knew about Clinton’s warmongering in Yemen.
Any answer to any of these questions is also going to implicate Hillary Clinton in their crimes. John Podesta has been so close to Hillary Clinton for so long.
I’m honestly surprised that the Clinton machine hasn’t labeled Podesta as a liability yet. Although, I suppose there is still time for a horrible accident to befall him before he testifies.
At first, I was a little troubled that the House decided this meeting with Podesta would occur in private. We all want to see him taken down publicly.
But, this may be a powerful strategic move, perhaps even being suggested by Trump himself. If the interview is private, I think Podesta is a lot more likely to make it in front of the committee alive.
Second, because the whole world knows Podesta had his hands on classified information, he could have used that as an excuse to avoid the committee’s questioning.
But, because the interview will be private, any excuse about a subject or document being classified will ring false. What information could he know that the committee members won’t?
This could be the first step to dragging the whole Clinton machine into the jail cell where it belongs. I really, really hope it is.
