Abby Martin Exposes John Podesta & Friends

In the months leading up to the presidential election, corporate media worked in hyper drive to sell Hillary Clinton to America. Party loyalists on both sides became frantic that the candidate they helped create could take the empire’s throne, with unpredictable consequences. Amidst a curtain of unquestioning sycophantic media coverage, a bombshell was dropped by Wikileaks weeks before the election, exposing the inner workings of the Clinton clique. An ongoing series of thousands of emails from John Podesta, the Chairman of Hillary’s presidential campaign. While John Podesta is treated as just a well meaning Clinton supporter who had his privacy unjustly exposed, he’s actually one of the most powerful people in Washington operating mostly behind the scenes, until now.

John Podesta is a columnist and former chairman of the 2016 Hillary Clinton presidential campaign. He previously served as chief of staff to President Bill Clinton and Counselor to President Barack Obama. He is the former president, and now Chair and Counselor, of the Center for American Progress (CAP), a liberal think tank in Washington, D.C., as well as a Visiting Professor of Law at the Georgetown University Law Center. Additionally, he was a co-chairman of the Obama-Biden Transition Project.
