The "efits" circulated by police depicted one man, not two; the images were of a person of interest or witness, not a possible kidnapper.
John Podesta was 67 in December 2016, indicating he was between 58 and 59 at the time of McCann's disappearance; the man depicted was described as being between the ages of 20 and 40. While only 18 years separate 40 and 58, it would be incredibly difficult to mistake a 60-year-old man for a 20-year-old.
Claims that the Podesta brothers appeared in the sketches and provided a match for the "suspects" was an example of an extremely common conspiracy theory trope. Virtually identical claims were trotted out weeks after the Sandy Hook mass shooting, when conspiracists claimed that the victims appeared in photographs alongside President Obama.
Honest truth is, I didn´t know police sketch artists were that good. The match on Tony may only be 85 or 90 percent but the match for John Podesta is absolute dead bang, a camera could not have done a better job.
¨Now, where have I seen THOSE two assholes before??¨
Certainly the UK will be plesed when the then-US-president becomes the head of the English and Welsh police forces.
