Leon Panetta Admits Congress Must Investigate Clinton Dossier Connection

Leon Panetta acknowledges that the appearance (at least!) that John Podesta lied about the Clinton dossier is “awkward.”

Former CIA chief and deep state Democrat politician, Leon Panetta, when confronted with the evidence could not avoid saying that Democrats should be investigated. It now appears that the Trump Russia dossier is more accurately named the Clinton dossier. Even CNN cannot bury the story completely and avoid the implications.

Courtney O’Brien writes at TownHall.com: “It’s Very Awkward’: Panetta Says Intel Committee Has to Investigate DNC-Dossier Link.

Reports this week suggested that the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee helped fund research that the firm Fusion GPS conducted into possible collusion between Donald Trump and the Kremlin during last year’s presidential election. Yet, both Clinton Campaign Chair John Podesta and former DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz claim they had no clue about the payments.

Blitzer pressed the issue, noting that the Clinton lawyer who retained Fusion GPS, Marc Elias, was sitting right next to Podesta when he spoke with the intelligence committee. Perhaps he should have briefed him?

“Well, it certainly makes the situation very awkward,” Panetta nodded.
