A close friend, advisor and confidant of presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was allegedly interviewed by the FBI in connection with the controversial dossier that was used in part as evidence by the bureau to obtain a warrant to investigate members of President Trumps campaign team, according to several sources who spoke to this reporter.
Sidney Blumenthal, a former journalist and a close friend of Clinton, was interviewed by the FBI in 2016 regarding the dossier that alleged Trump colluded with Russia, the sources stated. Department of Justice officials, however, declined to comment on Blumenthal or the dossier.
FBI officials declined to comment.
Blumenthal did not return a phone call seeking comment.
Blumenthal worked as a White House aide for Bill Clinton, and later worked with the Clinton Foundation after being denied a role by Obama Administration officials with then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, according to reports. According to Politico he was being paid $10,000 a month by the Clinton Foundation.
In 2015, emails released by the State Department showed the extensive and ongoing working relationship between Clinton and Blumenthal. The emails revealed that then Secretary of State Clinton would seek Blumenthals advice on foreign policy issues and his role appeared to be more of an advisor than friend, according to the emails. Blumenthal regularly sent Hillary Clinton vaguely sourced intelligence cable style briefings while she was Secretary of State.
Earlier this month, members of the House Intelligence Committee went to the Justice Department to review the FBI and DOJ documents requested last August by Chairman Devin Nunes, as reported earlier.

Was it recorded? Did the FBI take notes?
What a crock of crooked crap this whole thing is.
Good...investigate her! If nothing else, it keeps her trap shut. She was so full of herself, writing a book, etc., and now she’s hiding away and keeping a low profile. I read somewhere she cannot leave the country, but didn’t give it much credence at the time, altho’ I notice she hasn’t been out of the U.S. for some time. Anyone know if she had to surrender her passport?
I think Blumenthal was in her emails but I don’t remember the gist of previous stories about him.
Good old Sid.
Tracking down Qadaffis gold for Soros, Hillary and Obama.
And Hillary, peace loving soul that she is, when asked about her dealings as Secretary of State with the leader of Libya replied,
We came. We saw. He died! (cackle, cackle, cackle)
Hillary paid thugs to shove a bayonet up Qadaffis rear end.
Hillary.....shes the kind of girl youd like to take home to meet your Mom....if your Mom is a hangman.
I think the gist of it was that they were talking about classified info which he should not have been privy to.
Why would Blumenthal be interviewed about the dossier?
By Andrew McCabe, or one of his protege’s. Who checked the box, interview complete.
Im having a hard time following this too....why would Blumenthal be interviewed about the dossier?
and when in 2016?
Think Obama is mysterious? Take a gander at Blumenthal.
ITEM--Sid was banned from govt employment by Obama, but at the same time Blumenthal was pushing Secy of State Clinton to all-out war in Libya, suck-up Sid was privately pushing his business interests WRT contracts with the "new" Libyan government a government that would exist only after US military intervention in Libya that deposed Qaddafi.
ITEM--Blumenthal was engaged in massive conflicts of interest since he was simultaneously (a) being paid by The Clinton Foundation, (b) paid by Hillary's 2016 PAC organizers, and, (3) paid by businesses w/ interests in Libya.
If Secy Clinton knew all that, then her actions in circulating memos composed by Blumenthal were egregious. If she did not know, her recklessness is subject to US laws.
ITEM---to its donors---and to the world beyond---the Clinton Foundation hired Sid Blumenthal to..... (wait for it)..... "promote Bill's presidential legacy." That's what Sid was supposed to be doing for his hefty $325,000 foundation salary.
ITEM---so if the Clinton Foundation Board of Trustees signed off on the Blumenthal hire without being appraised of the full scope of his duties....that would violate state laws and place the trustees in legal jeopardy.
REFERENCES--- The implications of these Blumenthal revelations are huge, as the Washington Free Beacon points out:
<><> Among the newly revealed Benghazi e-mails were a pair of messages from July 2011 in which Blumenthal described efforts to secure Libyan government contracts for Osprey Global Solutions, a company in which Blumenthal has admitted to having a financial interest.
<><>Blumenthal warned Clinton that French companies were looking to scoop up security contracts from the Transitional National Council, the revolutionary government of the Libyan resistance, and plugged Ospreys ability to be an American counterweight.
<><> It puts Americans in a central role without being direct battle combatants, Blumenthal wrote of Ospreys TNC contract. He described his efforts in putting this arrangement together through a series of connections, linking the Libyans to Osprey and keeping it moving.
<><> Clinton forwarded that message to Jake Sullivan, her deputy chief of staff, and asked to discuss it later.
SHOCKER Clinton Foundation employee Sid Blumenthal (banned from govt employ) had inside govt info and was constantly in touch w/ Secy Hillary.
<><> For public consumption, Sid was beng touted as a Clinton Foundation hire---the factotum hired to preserve Bill's pesidential legacy (cue laugh machine).
<><> Shockingly, Sid's emails show he had classified State Dept info almost verbatim (as confirmed by the NSA).
<><> How did classified info get into Sid's possession? Did he pass it on to anyone else? Did he sell it to anyone else?
Blumenthal kept urging Hillary to bomb Libya b/c he had profit-making business interests predicated on a post-Khadaffi Libyan govt.
<><> Sid cunningly used scare tactics----telling Hillary that Obama would lose reelection if the US didn't bomb Libya.
Amazingly, the obedient Hillary passed on this information to Obama.....did O know it came from a person he banned from govt employment?
Sara was on Hannity the other night and Sean said he was giving a Name ...a corrupt person in the Clinton camp....then Sara basically confirmed it and said this means the Fisa court was lied too.....
2,159 results - That’s Sid in Hillary and John Podesta’s emails.
Blumenthal was ambidextrous---emailing Libya foreign policy messages w/ one hand....his other hand firmly in the State Dept cookie jar.
In one (leaked) confidential e-mail to Clinton, Blumenthal was clearly colluding w/ onetime Amb Joe Wilson (Valerie's husband) to score a bundle of tax dollars.
GAME ON Amb Wilson pumped himself as a 'director' of Symbion Power---an outfit seeking millions of dollars in contracts from an obscure government agency chaired by Hillary....the Millennium Challenge Corp (MCC)....a notorious slush fund.
In September 2010, Hillary ordered MCC to award Symbion $47 million tax dollars for (cough) 'power projects in Tanzania.'
......how much of the $47 million tax dollars got to Tanzania after the players divvied it up among Blumenthal, Wilson, the Clintons, Obama?.........
FREEPER ACTION PROJECT--DO THIS NOW: demand the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) books be opened. We demand to know the financial details and the scope and dimension of individuals connected to these outrageous State Dept giveaways.........govt parasites like Blumenthal, Plame and her husband pocketing zillions at taxayers' expense.

Milliam Challenege is also the govt agency Obama took 100 million tax dollars to give to Michelle to give to Morocco "to teach Muslim girls." The 100 million is to be held by the Obama Foundation and doled out "when needed."
(waiting for hysterical laughter to die down)
Blumenthal was the bag man in Lybia for the Benghazi weapons and money laundering operation. Sid is as evil and arrogant as cell division can deliver.
Sid “Vicious” Blew-them-all neck deep in this mess...color me stunned. /sarc
Let me guess..he said “I do not recall” about 50 times and was let go with a pat on the head
