Blumenthal Was on Clinton Foundation Payroll While Advising State Department


Monthly salary Sidney Blumenthal, a longtime confidant of Bill and Hillary Clinton, earned as a full-time employee of the Clinton Foundation while he was providing unsolicited intelligence on Libya to then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Politico reports. “Blumenthal was added to the payroll of the Clintons’ global philanthropy in 2009 — not long after advising Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign — at the behest of former president Bill Clinton, for whom he had worked in the White House, say the sources.”
