How about this? Does this pass the smell test:
The Clinton Foundation paid Sidney Blumenthal, an unofficial adviser to Hillary Clinton who emailed her reports on the situation in Libya, a monthly salary of about $10,000, according to Politico.
Blumenthal, a longtime Clinton confidant, joined the foundation’s payroll in 2009 and was switched to a similar contract without benefits in 2013. That contracted ended in March of that year.
The foundation hired Blumenthal after former President Clinton requested it, and the move was scrutinized by some foundation employees, according to Politico.
Emails from Hillary Clinton’s private server released last week by the State Department showed that Blumenthal sent about 25 memos to Clinton about Libya, including one that initially blamed the 2012 Benghazi attacks on a “sacrilegious internet video.” A follow-up email attributed it to a terrorist attack.
Clinton regularly forwarded those memos to her aides, sometimes asking for them to be printed. But on at least one occasion, she questioned Blumenthal’s information, emailing aides to say that memo “strains credulity.”
Blumenthal has agreed to testify in front of the House Select Committee on Benghazi by June 3.
“From time to time, as a private citizen and friend, I provided Secretary Clinton with material on a variety of topics that I thought she might find interesting or helpful,” Blumenthal said in a statement provided by his attorney after he agreed to the deposition.
If I was really being a conspiracy theorist, I’d venture that after his DUI in November, 2008, he was looking for work, but since he got nuked as a possible employee at the White House because he
was IS such an asshole during the campaign that none of the Obama loyalists NO ONE IN THEIR RIGHT MIND wanted anything to do with him, Hillary kind of had to find something for him because he knows where the bodies are and is a vicious snake who needs to be handled gently. And so he collected a cool 10k a month from the Clinton Foundation for 25 memos. Nice work if you can get it.
Your move, Hillbots. On a scale of trolling to serious, I’d put this post at about dead center, maybe to a little to the troll side, FYI.
