Watch John Podesta Try to Explain How the Russians Outsmarted Hillary

(Zero Hedge) Former Clinton campaign manager and ardent foodie, John Podesta, was caught flat-footed during a heated exchange on CBS's "Face the Nation" Sunday after being asked about the campaign's failure to campaign in so-called "purple states" in 2016.

In a discussion of 13 Russian nationals indicted by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, host Nancy Cordes noted that Russian operatives who meddled in the election somehow realized the importance of focusing on those highly contested swing states.




“How is it that these Russian operatives knew to focus on purple states like Michigan and Wisconsin and your campaign didn’t?” Nancy Cordes, the host of “Face the Nation,” asked Podesta.

A defensive Podesta responded “Of course we spent a lot of time and energy and effort in all those states."

Cordes pushed back, something Podesta wasn't prepared for. “Hillary Clinton did not spend much time" in said "purple" states. A flustered Podesta then stammered his way through a series of talking points, noting “We had Tim Kaine was there, Barack Obama and she spent enormous time in Pennsylvania and Michigan.”

You have nothing saved, and owe on your house, car, and credit card. This was no accident.


Lynn de Rothschild had some thoughts on the matter:
Podesta was caught off guard by the same MSM which was literally eating out of his home during propaganda huddles "off-the-record" dinners (no clue what was served over what) - with one of the goals of "Framing the HRC message and framing the race."
Alas for Podesta, it appears he may not enjoy the same support from the media he once had. Recall a similar heated exchange with Fox's Maria Bartiromo in June 2017 in which she grilled Podesta over his ties to a Kremlin-backed company.
“Don’t you find it odd that there’s been so much attention on the Trump Campaign and the Trump associates and potential collusion with the Russians when in fact it’s really the Democrats who have deeper and stronger ties to Russia,” Bartiromo said. 
“I mean John I have to ask your own situation..”
Bartiromo then goes on to break down how Podesta joined the board of the board of a small energy company in 2011 which later received $35 million from a Kremlin-funded entity. Other members of the board of Joule Unlimited included senior Russian official Anatoly Chubais and oligarch Reuben Vardanyan - a Putin appointee to the Russian economic modernization council. Podesta jettisoned his shares before the 2016 election, transferring them to his daughter via a shell corporation.
