Russia Invesigators Quiz Democrat John Podesta Over Election Meddling Claims

Ex-Clinton campaign chair Podesta meets with lawmakers investigating Russia

Hillary Clinton's 2016 campaign chairman, John Podesta, went to Capitol Hill on Tuesday for a closed-door hearing with the House Intelligence Committee investigating Russian interference in the election. Podesta stopped and commented briefly.

While President Donald Trump has previously declined to name Russian Federation as responsible for election meddling, in recent days he has referred to Russian Federation in criticizing the Obama administration's response to the hack.

News of Stone's forthcoming testimony came on the same day that Podesta testified before the House Intelligence Committee.

The Pakistani Border Action Team (BAT) members were armed with "headband cameras" to record the attack on the Indian Army patrol. Balku, were killed in the attack, while two members of the Pakistani Border Action Team (BAT) were killed in retaliatory action.

His personal email account was breached by hackers and the contents released in batches on the anti-secrecy platform WikiLeaks in the lead-up to the November 8 election, a steady drip-drip-drip of minor revelations that were politically damaging to Clinton.

"Roger Stone has been maligned by innuendo and misinformation regarding all of the events surrounding this investigation, " Buschel wrote in the statement on Tuesday.

Asked about the Obama administration's response to the Russian efforts to influence the election, Podesta said the administration was "dealing with unprecedented weaponization of fruits of Russian cyberactivity". It could be that what the Obama administration told the Clinton campaign about the hacking differed from what it told the Trump campaign. In a January 6 report, USA intelligence agencies said they believed that Russian Federation was behind the hacking of the emails.

The lower bound of the projections shows a still-enormous majority, with 415 seats, ensuring a strong hand for the new President. His party fielded newcomers in around 200 constituencies, some of whom felled long-sitting former ministers at the first round.

Stone has been mad at the former Clinton campaign chairman since Podesta accused him of having prior knowledge of the DNC leaks well before WikiLeaks began serving up Podesta's pizza orders and risotto recipe.

After reports by The Washington Post, Democrats have criticized former President Barack Obama for not doing more about the Russian attempt to influence the presidential campaign.

Russian Federation has repeatedly denied accusations of attempts to influence the elections in the United States.

Podesta spoke to members of the House intelligence committee, which is leading one of several investigations into alleged connections between Moscow and members of President Trump's campaign.
