As the memo’s fly this week and the plot thickens as to who knew what and when, the name of a particularly scurrilous figure resurfaced. Recently, on Martha McCallum’s Fox News show, “The Story,” Republican Representative Trey Gowdy suggested that Hillary Clinton confidant Sidney Blumenthal is one of the domestic sources who fed salacious and false information to Russians and dossier author Christopher Steele.
If true, it directly ties Hillary Clinton and the DNC to yet another attempt to illegally conspire to interfere in the 2016 election, insure her victory, dupe the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) courts, and involve friends in the FBI. We are already certain that the Clintons and the DNC directly funded Steele in the development of the fake dossier. Not only were the Clintons paying Steele to create a series of false accusations, through Blumenthal, they actually wrote it!
So, who is Blumenthal? Unfortunately, when I served President Bill Clinton as his Air Force Aide and carried the “nuclear football,” Blumenthal and I crossed paths. In short, he is a snake, capable of any and everything the Clintons desire, legal or illegal, true or false, moral or immoral. In the halls of the White House he was known as “Sid Viscious.” In short, he is the dirty trickster, the attack dog, the keeper of the closet skeletons, the slime master. Hillary has referred to him as “an old friend who emailed her from time to time.” In actuality, he is much, much more. He’s a sycophant who knows no depths to which he will not stoop as long as the Clinton’s are calling the shots.
Blumenthal was a senior advisor to President Bill Clinton from 1997 to 2001, the years most noted for scandal, after scandal, after scandal. He was one of the key witnesses in the grand jury testimonies born in the Monica Lewinsky affair and Clinton’s lying under oath. He leaked information to the media regarding an extramarital affair that House Judiciary Committee Chairman Henry Hyde had been involved with during the 1960s prompting him to step down. At one point, even Rahm Emmanuel, not one none either for integrity or honesty and who served both Clinton and Barack Obama, banned him from the White House.
When the Clintons left the White House, they immediately hired Blumenthal to a $10,000 a month position at the Clinton Foundation. Later, when Hillary was Secretary of State, she employed to spread lies in the aftermath of the Benghazi debacle providing her cover from her failure to protect our diplomats and save the lives of fellow American citizens. In short, whatever Hillary wants, Sid Vicious supplies.
Columnist Jonah Goldberg put it this way: “Sidney Blumenthal did what he did and said what he said because that is the kind of man he is. He likes saying bad things about people. If you snapped him open like a peapod, nothing but bilious black ooze would come out.”
In the days ahead, as more and more evidence is revealed tying the “Russian Collusion” claim completely to the Clintons, and exonerating President Trump, expect to become intimately familiar with Blumenthal. My advice, take a shower afterwards.
