SEE VIDEO: John Podesta Gets Embarrassed In Mainstream Media Interview!
John Podesta appeared on an interview on CBS's "Face the Nation" where he was asked how "Russian operatives" knew to focus on purple states and the Clinton campaign did not?
Podesta had no legitimate response.
Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” fill-in host Nancy Cordes pressed 2016 Hillary Clinton presidential campaign chairman John Podesta on his campaign’s election strategy.
Cordes asked Podesta why Russian operatives that allegedly interfered in that election knew to target so-called “purple states” like Michigan and Wisconsin, while they were ignored by the Clinton campaign.
Partial transcript as follows:
CORDES: But it does beg the question, how is it that these Russian operatives knew to focus on purple states like Michigan and Wisconsin and your campaign didn’t?
PODESTA: Well, of course, we spent a lot of time and energy and effort in all those states.
CORDES: Hillary Clinton herself did not spend much time in those states.
PODESTA: We — you know, we had — Tim Kaine was there. Barack Obama was in — and she spent enormous time in Pennsylvania and Michigan.
John Podesta Left Flabbergasted When Asked About Russians
During an interview on CBS's "Face The Nation", John Podesta couldn't find the words to answer the question, "How is it that these Russian operatives knew to focus on purple states like Michigan and Wisconsin and your campaign didn't?"
From Gateway Pundit: Nancy Cordes referenced Robert Mueller’s indictment which revealed the Russians targeted swing states such as Michigan and Wisconsin for their disinformation campaign.
“But it does beg the question, how is it that these Russian operatives knew to focus on purple states like Michigan and Wisconsin and your campaign didn’t?” Nancy Cordes asked.
Podesta was visibly flustered.
“Of course we spent a lot of time and energy and effort in all those states,” Podesta said.
Cordes quickly shot back and said, “Hillary Clinton herself did not spend much time in those states.”
Podesta was stunned at the push back and stammered his way through his talking points.
“We had Tim Kaine was there, Barack Obama and she spent enormous time in Pennsylvania and Michigan,” Podesta said.

Hillary AND Podesta Are In Big Trouble!
Hillary Clinton and John Podesta are among many people targeted by the U.S. Senate over the "Trump dossier" - they have been given two weeks to respond.
GOP Congressional investigators have written six letters to individuals or entities involved or thought to be involved in the funding, creation or distribution of the salacious and unverified "Trump-Russia dossier" believed to have been inappropriately used by the FBI, DOJ and Obama Administration in an effort to undermine Donald Trump as both a candidate and President of the United States.
Senators Chuck Grassley (R-IA) and Lindsey Graham (R-SCS) wrote six Judiciary Committee letters requesting information from: John Podesta, Donna Brazille, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Robbie Mook, the DNC, and Hillary For America Chief Strategist Joel Benenson.
A brief refresher of facts and allegations:
The DNC and Hillary Clinton's PAC was revealed by The Washington Post to have paid opposition research firm Fusion GPS for the creation of a dossier that would be harmful to then-candidate Donald Trump.
Fusion commissioned former UK spy Christopher Steele to assemble the dossier - which is comprised of a series of memos relying largely on Russian government sources to make allegations against Donald Trump and his associates.
According to court filings, Fusion also worked with disgraced DOJ official Bruce Ohr, and hired his CIA-linked wife, Nellie Ohr, to assist in the smear campaign against Trump.
Bruce Ohr was demoted from his senior DOJ position after it was revealed that he met with Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson as well as Christopher Steele - then tried to cover it up.
Hillary Clinton's campaign chairman, John Podesta, denied under oath to the Senate Intelligence Committee that he knew about the dossier's funding, while Clinton's former spokesman, Brian Fallon, told CNN that Hillary likely had no idea who paid for it either.
Current and past leaders of the DNC, including Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) also denied knowledge of the document's funding.
Podesta met with Fusion co-founder Glenn Simpson the day after the Trump-Russia dossier was published by Buzzfeed News.
The Senate Judiciary Committee letters read in part:
In October 2017, the Washington Post reported that Hillary for America and the Democratic National Committee had funded, via Fusion GPS, Christopher Steele's creation of a series of memos relying largely on Russian government sources to make allegations against Donald Trump and his associates. A letter from the law firm Perkins Coie acknowledged that, " [t]o assist in its representation of the DNC and Hillary for America, Perkins Coie engaged Fusion GPS in April of2016" and that "the engagement concluded prior to the November 2016 Presidential election
the Committee has been investigating the FBI' s relationship with Christopher Steele during this time his work was funded by Hillary for America and the DNC. The scope of our review includes the extent to which the FBI may have relied on information relayed by Mr. Steele in seeking judicial authorization for surveillance of individuals associated with Mr. Trump. It also includes whether any applications that may have been made for permission for such surveillance fully and accurately disclosed:
(1) the source of Fusion GPS's and Mr. Steele's funding;
(2) the degree to which his claims were or were not verified;
(3) the motivations of Mr. Steele, his clients, and his sources; and
(4) representations about their contacts with the press.
The letter then goes on to list twelve questions - the last being a request for all communications between a list of 40 individuals or entities - including Christopher Steele, Bruce Ohr, Peter Strzok, Andrew McCabe, Glenn Simpson and former CIA Director John Brennan.
The six recipients of letters have two weeks to comply with the following requests (note; "Hillary for America" is replaced by "the DNC" depending on who the letter is addressed to):

Wikileaks Has Spilled The Beans On Podesta's Inside Knowledge!
John Podesta was allegedly briefed on the removal of the "grossly negligent" phrase from former FBI Director James Comey's exoneration of Hillary Clinton.
According to an email provided by WikiLeaks, Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman was briefed about then-FBI Director James Comey’s statement exonerating her, which included the incriminating phrase “gross negligence” before it was stricken.
The email never got much fanfare from the anti-secrecy organization, largely because it appears to be fairly mundane. But, an eagle-eyed citizen spotted the potential connection that could blow the whole email investigation wide open.
In the email from President Bill Clinton’s former chief of staff, Tina Flournoy, which was sent to Clinton 2016 campaign chairman John Podesta’s Gmail account, the former included links to two mainstream media articles concerning the FBI’s email server investigation. One of those was a legal analysis by retired D.C. power attorney Paul Mirengoff, who suggested:
It was not ordinary negligence that caused Clinton to permit highly sensitive information to be removed from its proper place and onto Clinton’s private email servers. This strikes me as gross negligence at a minimum. Clinton herself had warned others about the prospect of private emails accounts being hacked.
Nor was it ordinary negligence to deliver highly sensitive information to someone lacking a security clearance (in this case, an inveterate gossip [Sid Blumenthal]). Such imprudence, again, seems grossly negligent or worse.
