Obama Hires Incendiary Podesta as Top Advisor

Podesta’s group also belittled government watchdogs’ calls for more Obama administration transparency regarding IRS officials targeting Tea Party groups, State Department officials failing to disclose facts regarding the Benghazi consulate attack, and Obama administration officials knowing millions of people would not be able to keep their health insurance under Obamacare in contradiction of the president’s promises.

“President Obama has signed Podesta on as White House counselor—which makes him part of the circle of three or four advisors closest to the President," said Myron Ebell, director of energy and environment studies at the Competitive Enterprise Institute.
