In a royal battle disguised as a TV interview, Maria Bartiromo fires at John Podesta and he gives back as good as he gets!
The amazing thing about the way Maria Bartiromo fires accusations at John Podesta is that it is the first time he looks like it is possible he is telling the truth. He’s probably not, but Democrats, if they have a case to make about anything, will only come across as credible (if that is possible) when facing a hostile media instead of their own PR agents posturing as journalists.
The fact that Democrats don’t want such bracing exchanges is half the reason they seem so guilty. Why do they need a compliant media to help them out?
The Washington Free Beacon reports, “Podesta Clashes With Bartiromo Over Russia Ties: ‘Go Back and Get Your Facts Straight’”
Bartiromo pushed Podesta on his association with the company, which she said was “widely reported” to be Kremlin-backed. Podesta served on the company’s board for multiple years starting in 2011.
“You joined the board of a small energy company in 2011,” Bartiromo said. “Two months later a Russian entity directly funded by the Kremlin invested $35 million in the company. You were given 75,000 shares in a Russian company which you failed to disclose when you became an Obama associate.”
“Maria, that is not true. I fully disclosed and I was completely compliant,” Podesta responded.
“You are picking through my emails that were stolen from the Russians and released by WikiLeaks and creating a story that is not true,” he added.
Bartiromo continued to say he had shares in a “Russian company.”
“Go back and get your facts straight, Maria,” Podesta said.
“That’s not true, John. We know you owned 75,000 shares,” Bartiromo responded.
Podesta insisted that it was not a Russian company, but she responded that “it’s backed by the Kremlin.”
“The Russian company had a small investment in that company,” Podesta said, before attacking her sources.
