John Podesta Testifies on Russia Probe

Clinton campaign chief has closed-door talk with House panel

Clinton campaign chief has closed-door talk with House panel

For his part, Stone said he wanted to testify to counter John Podesta's testimony from earlier in the day.

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. Committee members declined to comment on the discussion to reporters as they left the panel's secure hearing room.

Podesta told reporters after the meeting that he was "happy to cooperate with the committee in their investigation of Russian interference with the democratic process in the United States".

Mr. Podesta's personal email account and the Democratic National Committee servers were hacked in the final months of the 2016 campaign and messages subsequently published on WikiLeaks.

Though Jackson has not worked out for the Celtics, it was reported Wednesday that the team had received his medical information. Then, it was believed that Boston could save the night by stealing Paul George away from the Lakers.

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.

Podesta, a former chief of staff to President Bill Clinton and counselor to President Barack Obama, was caught up in the cyberattacks that took place at the end of the presidential campaign.

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.

He will testify before the same body - the House Intelligence Committee - that is investigating Trump associates' ties to Russian Federation, the country suspected of assisting WikiLeaks's email hack.

Macron's party makes big win in legislative election
The Socialists, who dominated the last Assembly, are expected to suffer a stinging defeat and win just a few dozen seats. With most first round votes counted, the National Front was on course to win about 13.5 percent of votes.

The House intelligence panel is conducting one of several investigations into Russian meddling in the election and possible collusion with members of Trump's campaign, as is Department of Justice Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

The Post reported that intelligence agencies told the then-president in July 2016 that Russian President Vladimir Putin had personally ordered the officials to attempt to influence the election to aid Trump's victory.

Podesta said the Obama administration was "trying to make the best judgment they could".
