Podesta pirouettes

John Podesta holds the position of chairman of the Clinton presidential campaign. He appeared this morning on CNN’s State of the Union for an interview by Jake Tapper regarding James Comey’s announcement that the FBI has obtained additional emails bearing on the Clinton email investigation (video below). CNN reports on the interview here.

Podesta talks like he can run out the clock with his gums flapping until November 8. Summarizing the actions of the players that have returned this matter to currency, Tapper euphemistically observes that “Weiner was doing what he was doing.” What should Comey have done, Tapper asks. All in all, the interview provides a powerful preview of coming attractions in a second Clinton presidency.
