Podesta, Schultz May Be Questioned by Congressional Investigators After Denying Knowledge of Payments to Firm Behind Russia Dossier

Hillary Clinton and her inner circle of rats are all denying they knew the DNC and her campaign paid for the Russian dossier.

In an interesting twist, both John Podesta (Hillary’s former campaign chairman) and Debbie Wasserman Schultz (former chairwoman of the DNC) denied having knowledge of who paid Fusion GPS for the Russia dossier to Congressional investigators in private interviews prior to WaPo’s bombshell report.

Now that it has been disclosed the DNC and Hillary’s campaign paid for the salacious document, Congressional investigators may call Podesta and Schultz back in for questioning. It is against the law to lie to Congress.

Via CNN:

Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta and former Democratic National Committee chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz both privately denied to congressional Russia investigators that they had any knowledge about an arrangement to pay for opposition research on President Donald Trump, three sources familiar with the matter told CNN.

The interviews happened before this week’s disclosure that the Clinton campaign and DNC paid for the research. Senate investigators may seek to further question the two top Democrats and dig deeper on the origins of the so-called Trump dossier, one of the sources briefed on the matter said.
Their remarks to congressional investigators raises the stakes in their assertion that they knew nothing about the funding because it’s against the law to make false statements to Congress.
CNN also reported Podesta was asked in his September interview if Clinton’s camp had any contractual agreement with Fusion GPS, and he said he was not aware of one.
Podesta’s lawyer Marc Elias was sitting next to him during this September interview, according to CNN. Marc Elias works for Perkins Coie, the law firm that retained Fusion GPS to represent Hillary Clinton’s campaign.
So nobody in Clinton’s camp, including Hillary knew millions of campaign dollars were going towards this oppo research/fake dossier but Hillary and these incompetent Dems think they were qualified to run a country. Got it.
