John Podesta Told Senate He Doesn’t Know Who Paid For Russia Dossier – It Was His Lawyer

Is there anyone connected to Hillary Clinton and the Democrat Party who isn’t a massive liar? Before all the recent revelations about the Russian Dossier, Hillary’s campaign chair told the Senate he didn’t know who paid for it.

It was his lawyer, who was sitting right next to him.

The Daily Caller reports:

John Podesta, Whose Lawyer Paid For Dossier, Told Senate He Didn’t Know Who Funded It

Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, John Podesta, recently denied to Senate Intelligence Committee investigators that he knew who had funded the infamous Steele dossier on Donald Trump.

But when he issued that denial, Podesta happened to be sitting next to the man who did pay for the salacious document: Marc Elias, the general counsel for the Clinton campaign and Democratic National Committee.

Elias was in the Senate meeting in his capacity as Podesta’s personal attorney, CNN reported on Thursday. But the lawyer, a partner at the firm Perkins Coie, apparently did not reveal during the interview that he was involved in the dossier, which was commissioned by opposition research firm Fusion GPS and written by former British spy Christopher Steele.

The Senate interview with Podesta was conducted before it was revealed that the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee jointly funded the dossier. The Washington Post reported that Elias, a longtime Democratic party “fixer,” paid Fusion GPS through Perkins Coie.

These people are completely crooked and deserve jail. Every last one of them.
