Hillary Clinton campaign manager John Podesta is not a fan of her “old friend” Sidney Blumenthal, according to emails published by WikiLeaks.

“Sid is lost in his own web of conspiracies,” Podesta wrote in response to a January 2016 email from left-wing columnist Brent Budowsky. “I pay zero attention to what he says.”


Budowsky had told Podesta he thought it was “disquieting that when HRC was secretary of state she spent a good [amount] of time doing gossip emails with Sid Blumenthal about various matters.”

Emails released by the State Department revealed that Hillary Clinton engaged in extensive correspondence with Blumenthal during her tenure as secretary of state. Blumenthal, who got a six-figure gig at the Clinton Foundation after the Obama administration vetoed Hillary’s attempt to hire him at the state department, appears to have been running a rogue intelligence operation.

John Podesta is a UFO Truther, but he still thinks Blumenthal is too conspiracy-minded to take seriously.
