Usually John Podesta is cool, calm, and collected, but he was the complete opposite when speaking to CNN’s Jake Tapper about Hillary Clinton’s lated Email Probe by FBI Director James Comey. He used a lot of uh’s, breathed audibly, had a higher pitched voice, and lots of lip licking.
First and foremost, Podesta constantly peppered almost every utterance peppered with numerous “uh”‘s. That is a clear indication that he is nervous and anxious about what he is saying.
We also hear a lot of audible breathing which indicates there are respiratory changes and that his autonomic nervous system is kicking in. That too indicates that his body is going into overdrive in dealing with his anxiety over the Hillary email issue.
Next, the pitch of his voice is higher than usual, indicating that there is a lot of tension in his vocal muscles- something that often occurs when someone is tense and nervous. When he yelled out to Jake , “Do you know that? Do you know that?” his voice was extremely high and there was a pitch break in his voice ,which further illustrated vocal tension as Jake let it be known that the evidence is known based on the report by the CNN Justice correspondent.
As you can see in the photo above the muscle tension is also in Podesta’s lower jaw area which indicated anxiety and nervousness.
His lip licking was prevalent throughout the interview, which is further indication that his autonomic nervous system was kicking in. His dry mouth or cotton mouth was due to his saliva drying up as he spoke, and hence his constant lip licking. This further illustrates his nervousness.
His mouth was so dry that his lips seemed to be stuck to the inner mucosa of his mouth, further indicating that his autonomic nervous system was in overdrive.
And finally we saw a lot more eye blinking than usual, which is also a signal of anxiety and tension as he was grilled by Tapper.
His breathing then became more shallow and his speaking less fluid and more choppy as he spoke and attempted to defend his position.And finally he continues to stammer and stumbles over words use a lot of uh’s, which to not add to his credibility when he speaks on the subject.
The conclusion is that Podesta who usually appears as being non-flappable and in control when he is interviewed by the media http://www.cnn.com/videos/politics/2016/09/08/five-minutes-with-john-podesta.cnn
was the complete opposite in this interview.http://dailycaller.com/2016/10/30/tapper-sends-john-podesta-into-full-on-nosedive-do-you-know-that-jake-you-dont-know-anything-video/ Here he is clearly very nervous and anxiety ridden over the new probe into Hillarry’s emails by the FBI where 650,000 emails are now being examined.
