One of the most prolific and insightful chroniclers of the Russia Hoax that the Obama administration, the Clinton campaign, and their allies and lackeys in the FBI and Intelligence Community perpetrated upon the United States has been Lee Smith. He’s as Senior Fellow at the Hudson Institute and has been instrumental in teasing out the various strands of this slow-motion coup. Now Lee has a book coming out next week titled The Plot Against the President: The True Story of How Congressman Devin Nunes Uncovered the Biggest Political Scandal in U.S. History. And that book has drawn the attention of long-time Clinton consigliere Sid “Sid Vicious” Blumenthal.
Clinton family associate Sidney Blumenthal has made legal threats to the publisher of a forthcoming book featuring allegations against Democrats in connection with the Russia investigation in an attempt to stop publication, Fox News has learned.
A source familiar with the matter told Fox News that Blumenthal claimed the book – “The Plot Against the President: The True Story of How Congressman Devin Nunes Uncovered the Biggest Political Scandal in U.S. History,” by Lee Smith – was defamatory.
“Blumenthal tried to stop it from being published,” the source told Fox News, saying the Hillary Clinton confidant sent threatening letters to Smith and publisher Center Street, a division of Hachette Book Group.
Defaming a public figure, particularly one as odious as Hillary Clinton, is a very difficult barrier to overcome in any legal action but I suspect that Blumenthal has an additional agenda.
Back when Hillary Clinton’s emails came out, we found that Hillary Clinton was using an off-books intelligence service rather than relying upon the Intelligence Community (note to self: why is it that no one in government seems to trust the Intelligence Community very much?). Of course, there was an uproar over the Secretary of State using some cronies to provide her with the information she used to set foreign policy–just joking, because her name wasn’t Donald Trump no one thought very much of it. The head of this off books project was non-other than Sid Blumenthal. He was partnered with a skeevy ex-CIA goon named Tyler Drumheller…who had the foresight to die in August 2015 as the email investigation was heating up. One of the emails included Top Secret information that did NOT originate at State. If this had been pursued with anything like the energy used trying to frame George Papadopoulos I think it would have made Comey’s decision to not prosecute Clinton impossible. Read these two speculative pieces:
The more attention that is drawn to Clinton by Lee’s book, the more attention that is going to be drawn to the activities of Sid Vicious, the court sycophant and fixer. The more people start looking at Blumenthal, the more interesting he’s going to become. And unlike most of the other players in this melodrama, absolutely no one in DC likes Blumenthal.
