Top Dems Broke the Law and LIED to Congress About Dirty Dealings and Payouts for Fake Russian Dossier

But don't expect them to be held to the same level of accountability as Trump and associates. That only happens to Republicans!

Things are really starting to get interesting.  Soon we will have the potential bombshell of an eyewitness to Russian bribery of U.S. officials from the Obama Administration. And possibly also, the bank records from the discredited Democrat firm which supplied the phony Russian dossier. Did they pay Russians in Putin's power for that malarkey?  Who else did they pay with Hillary's money?

We should soon know. But for now, we have the sorry fact that Dems LIED to congressional investigators and even CNN is having trouble covering up for them. Take this report from Manu Raju and Jeremy Herb:

Exclusive: In Hill interviews, top Dems denied knowledge of payments to firm behind Trump dossier

(CNN)Hillary Clinton's campaign chairman John Podesta and former Democratic National Committee chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz both privately denied to congressional Russia investigators that they had any knowledge about an arrangement to pay for opposition research on President Donald Trump, three sources familiar with the matter told CNN.
The interviews happened before this week's disclosure that the Clinton campaign and DNC paid for the research. Senate investigators may seek to further question the two top Democrats and dig deeper on the origins of the so-called Trump dossier, one of the sources briefed on the matter said.
Their remarks to congressional investigators raise the stakes in their assertion that they knew nothing about the funding because it's against the law to make false statements to Congress.

Podesta was asked in his September interview whether the Clinton campaign had a contractual agreement with Fusion GPS, and he said he was not aware of one, according to one of the sources.
Sitting next to Podesta during the interview: his attorney Marc Elias, who worked for the law firm that hired Fusion GPS to continue research on Trump on behalf of the Clinton campaign and DNC, multiple sources said. Elias was only there in his capacity as Podesta's attorney and not as a witness.
On Tuesday, that law firm, Perkins Coie, wrote in a letter that it had retained Fusion GPS as part of its representation of the Clinton campaign and the DNC. The disclosure of the Democratic funding source for Fusion GPS is raising new questions for the congressional Russian investigators. The Perkins Coie letter suggested its clients -- the Clinton campaign and the DNC -- did not learn about the matter until recently.
Senate intelligence Chairman Richard Burr told CNN Wednesday that the disclosure that Fusion GPS had been paid by the Clinton campaign and the DNC opens up a new line of inquiry for the panel to pursue as part of its investigation.
"This provides us the ability to connect some dots that we couldn't do before this," Burr said. "And any investigation when you have a revelation this big, it begins to clarify some pictures that you were already trying to understand. This ... will require us to dig a lot deeper in some areas that maybe a week ago we weren't planning to."
Why is it so easy for Democrats to lie?

Things are starting to get messy for Democrats VERY quickly. After a year of pointing the finger at Trump we're now finding out how Democrats may potentially be guilty of far worse. Is it time yet to appoint a Special Prosecutor to look into this with the same thoroughness as the investigation of Trump?
