    Ed Klein: The Real Reason Hillary Asked for a Recount IBy Ed Klein Wednesday, 30 Nov 2016 Why did Hillary Clinton join Jill Stein, the Green Party's oddball presidential nominee, in asking for a recount of the votes in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania, when everyone knows that such a recount won't change the outcome of the 2016 election? Part of the answer is that people close to Hillary ó Huma Abedin, Chelsea Clinton, and Sidney Blumenthal ó encouraged her to ask for a recount as a way of lifting her spirits. "She is weepy, looks 10 years older and is...

    The Romanian hacker whose illegal exploits first exposed Hillary Clinton‚Äôs use of a non-governmental e-mail system is set to waive extradition later this month so he can face trial in the United States on a nine-count felony indictment. Known as ‚ÄúGuccifer,‚ÄĚ hacker Marcel Lehel Lazar, 43, is scheduled for a February 17 extradition hearing in Romania, where he has been jailed since his arrest in January 2014. Lazar is serving a four-year sentence for hacking into the e-mail accounts of several public figures in Romania, including the head of the country‚Äôs intelligence service. In a phone interview from a Bucharest...

    Itís an ancient story: An innocent idealist sets out to change the world and in the process becomes what he hates most. ďHe who fights monsters should see to it that he himself does not become a monster,Ē Friedrich Nietzsche advised. Thatís probably the best spin one can put on Sidney Blumenthal, the longtime Hillary Rodham Clinton aide and confidant. But it would be just that ó spin ó given that Blumenthal was never an idealist, never mind an innocent. He has remained the same man he was in 1976, when he co-edited Government by Gunplay: Assassination Conspiracy Theories from...

    Back in October I told you that Hillary Clinton‚Äôs email troubles were anything but over, and that the scandal over her misuse of communications while she was Secretary of State was sure to get worse. Sure enough, EmailGate continues to be a thorn in the side of Hillary‚Äôs presidential campaign and may have just entered a new, potentially explosive phase with grave ramifications, both political and legal. The latest court-ordered dump of her email, just placed online by the State Department, brings more troubles for Team Hillary. This release of over 3,000 pages includes 66 ‚ÄúUnclassified‚ÄĚ messages that the State...

  • Emails Show Hillary Met At State Department With Sidney Blumenthal

    During the fallout from her use of a personal email account, Hillary Clinton has attempted to downplay her working relationship with Sidney Blumenthal, but emails released last week show that the two met at her State Department office in 2012. Blumenthal has proved a thorn in the Democratic presidential candidate's side. The former journalist, who worked as an aide in the Bill Clinton White House, frequently emailed Clinton intelligence that he had gleaned from undisclosed sources. In many cases, Blumenthal was advancing the business interests of companies for which he was working. In other emails, Blumenthal would email Clinton political...

    Will Hillary’s hatchet man be up for White House job if she wins? I have a lot of problems with the Benghazi committee, such as the right-wing canard suggesting that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the CIA are somehow responsible for the tragic 2012 death of U.S. Ambassador to Libya J. Christopher Stevens. But I also have problems with people who dismiss the Benghazi hearings in their entirety as nothing more than a partisan witch hunt, which is the standard approach by most big media. To take one recent example, The Washington Post’s Dana Milbank, in a typically...

    Monday on MSNBC‚Äôs ‚ÄúHardball,‚ÄĚ while discussing a new pro-Sen.

    But she's still betting you don't care. If you paid attention to the substance of Hillary‚Äôs Benghazi testimony the week before last, you know she was shown beyond all doubt to have lied to the American people about the terrorist attack that killed four Americans on September 11, 2012. If you just read the dinosaur media‚Äôs analysis, of course, you think she ‚Äúwon‚ÄĚ and it was a ‚Äúdisaster for Republicans‚ÄĚ that essentially ended Benghazi as a news story forever. And Hillary‚Äôs banking on the latter narrative big time now, because she knows that as more of her e-mails are released,...

    After the media inexplicably dubbed Hillary Rodham Clinton the ‚Äúwinner‚ÄĚ of the Benghazi hearings, her apologists dismissed a line of questioning into her unofficial adviser, Sidney Blumenthal. So he was sending her e-mail offering advice on Libya and other matters of state. In the immortal words of Clinton at an earlier Benghazi hearing, ‚ÄúWhat difference does it make?‚ÄĚ

    Far from providing just "unsolicited" advice to Hillary Clinton, Sidney Blumenthal appears to have authored a draft of at least one of the Democratic presidential frontrunner's speeches during her time as secretary of state at her behest. Read more: http://dailycaller.com#ixzz3q9wWwDo2
