House Russia investigators interview John Podesta

House Russia investigators interview John Podesta

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.

During the election campaign, Podesta's email account was hacked and WikiLeaks published details of his communications in a day-by-day drip feed of information.

Stephanopoulos asked Stone about a tweet he sent on August 21, which read, "Trust me, it will soon be Podesta's time in the barrel".

Asked if the Obama administration did enough to call Russia out ahead of the election, Podesta said Tuesday, "I think the president and the entire administration were dealing with an unprecedented incidence of the weaponization of the fruits of Russian cyber activity, and I think they were trying to make the best judgments they could on behalf to the American people".

"Correct", Stone said. But, he said his tweet made no mention of Podesta's emails.

The first warning sign came in September 2015 when an agent from the FBI's Washington Field Office notified the Democratic National Committee that Russian hackers had compromised at least one DNC computer."They left a phone message at the help desk of the DNC", Podesta said.

Stone's testimony will follow a closed session the House Intelligence Committee had with Hillary Clinton adviser John Podesta on Tuesday. I may not be able to sue a member of Congress but I sure as hell can sue the fuck out of Podesta.

Stone has denied co-ordinating with Russian Federation during the 2016 election, but he has acknowledged having a Twitter exchange with "Guccifer 2.0", a hacker that US officials believe has ties to Russian Federation. "The claim that I had knowledge of the hacking of his email by WikiLeaks in advance is a demonstrable lie", Stone added.

Buschel told Politico that Stone has been "cooperating" with House and Senate committees in their respective Moscow probes. According to that same statement, Stone is reportedly looking forward to making his testimony to the committee.
