Clinton Political Advisor Sydney Blumenthal Has Been Paid by the Clinton Foundation for Years;
"Advised" Hillary on Libya at Same Time He Was Seeking Business Opportunities There

I keep calling the Clinton Foundation the "Foundation for Clintons" because that's clearly what it is.

Not only does the Foundation pay for the Clintons' travel, not only does it create shopportunities for foreign governments to pay the Clintons $500,000 a speech for Administrative action, but the Foundation for Clintons also serves to keep the Clintons' key political people paid between Clinton presidencies.

Otherwise these people would have to find real jobs besides plumping Hillary for President.

Well, Sydney Blumenthal turns out to be an employee of this fraudulent charity. Blumenthal's previous charitable works consist of spreading the slander that Monica Lewinsky was a delusional stalker to the press.

What the hell is this slimy monster doing working for a "charity"?

Supposedly he's guiding them on "messaging." That is a Political concept, not a charitable one.

The Foundation for Clintons is NOT a charity. It is a criminal political enterprise that does some charity as window dressing to conceal the grubby, selfish motives of the organization.*

And we're finally seeing some news breaking on that.

[A]s Hillary Rodham Clinton embarks on her second presidential bid, Mr. Blumenthalís service to the Clintons is once again under the spotlight. Representative Trey Gowdy of South Carolina, a Republican who is leading the congressional committee investigating the 2012 attacks in Benghazi, Libya, plans to subpoena Mr. Blumenthal, 66, for a private transcribed interview.

Mr. Gowdy's chief interest, according to people briefed on the inquiry, is a series of memos that Mr. Blumenthal -- who was not an employee of the State Department -- wrote to Mrs. Clinton about events unfolding in Libya before and after the death of Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi. According to emails obtained by The New York Times, Mrs. Clinton, who was secretary of state at the time, took Mr. Blumenthal's advice seriously, forwarding his memos to senior diplomatic officials in Libya and Washington and at times asking them to respond. Mrs. Clinton continued to pass around his memos even after other senior diplomats concluded that Mr. Blumenthal's assessments were often unreliable.

But an examination by The New York Times suggests that Mr. Blumenthal's involvement was more wide-ranging and more complicated than previously known, embodying the blurry lines between business, politics and philanthropy that have enriched and vexed the Clintons and their inner circle for years.

While advising Mrs. Clinton on Libya, Mr. Blumenthal, who had been barred from a State Department job by aides to President Obama, was also employed by her familyís philanthropy, the Clinton Foundation, to help with research, "message guidance" and planning of commemorative events, according to foundation officials. During the same period, he also worked on and off as a paid consultant to Media Matters and American Bridge, organizations that helped lay the groundwork for Mrs. Clinton's 2016 campaign.

Much of the Libya intelligence that Mr. Blumenthal passed on to Mrs. Clinton appears to have come from a group of business associates he was advising as they sought to win contracts from the Libyan transitional government. The venture, which was ultimately unsuccessful, involved other Clinton friends, a private military contractor and one former C.I.A. spy seeking to get in on the ground floor of the new Libyan economy.

Among the friends was that Drumheller guy, a former spy who was the head of the Haggard Queen's private intelligence service.

See AllahPundit's update for yet another Hillary lie exposed. Hillary has claimed that she only used her "hr22" email address for State Department business. When another email address surfaced -- "hrod17" -- she claimed she had only begun using that after she left State.

Guess what the newest disclosures indicate, vis-a-vis the truthfulness of a Hillary Clinton statement?

Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton is offering -- well, I should say her people are offering, as she won't speak to the press -- spin on her refusal to answer media questions.

It's nothing short of astonishing.

She says -- I mean, Those Who Speak On Behalf of Her Atrociousness say -- that Hillary has answered 20 questions from "Real Americans" -- you know, those hand-selected Democratic plants who ask gauzy questions like what she will do to put the "heart" back in education, whatever that means.

[The Queen's memo] lists every one of those questions -- from "Give me a sense of your experience with that?" (Iowa) to "Do you want to share your story?" (Nevada).

And The Queen's Guard further says that Hillary has asked these "Everyday Americans" 117 questions.

That is, during those scripted events, she asked the plants 117 questions. She wants credit for being a Different Kind of Leader, one who doesn't answer questions, but instead answers them.

Has she ever asked those Plants what the hell Sydney Blumenthal was doing advising her to go to war in Libya while he was sniffing out business ventures for a post-Ghadaffi Libya?

* I am frequently reminded that SPECTRE hid behind a charitable front group -- specifically, one seeking to aid displaced persons (refugees, etc.)

SPECRE had its own private intelligence service, too.
