John Podesta likely to be interviewed by House Intelligence Committee next week

John Podesta likely to be interviewed by House Intelligence Committee next week”

John Podesta will answer questions next week in a closed session from the House Intelligence Committee, which is investigating the Russian meddling in last year's election, NBC News reported.

The committee will likely probe Podesta about the hack that led to thousands of his emails leaking online, and which caused the Clinton campaign embarrassment in the midst of a competitive election.

The committee will try to determine the extent of the Russian involvement in last year's campaign and whether any of President Donald Trump's associates coordinated with the Russians.

The email leak came as a result of Podesta's misunderstanding with a campaign official who told him to reset his password after receiving a "phishing" email scam. The conspiracy, as peculiar as it sounds, alleged that Clinton and Podesta were at the center of a secret child-trafficking ring being run out of a Washington DC pizzeria.

House Intelligence Committee members said Friday there was no indication that the memos from fired FBI Director James Comey would be turned over to the panel, despite a deadline imposed by the committee leaders to turn them over by day's end.

"[Comey] made a bad judgment, and I think virtually anybody who has opined on the topic ... has said it was an awful mistake of judgment", he told Heilemann.
