A guy who would intimidate women who accused Bill Clinton of “sexual harassment” (1) and who made a hobby of impersonating US agents:
And you thought Sidney Blumenthal was shady.
Few people have heard of Cody Shearer, the unsanctioned diplomat, private eye, and Clinton flunky whose name surfaced in connection with the so-called intelligence reports Sidney Blumenthal was channeling to Hillary Clinton during her time at the State Department. But this shadowy fixture of the Clinton machine was everywhere in the 1990s — including war-torn Bosnia, where he became the subject of a State Department investigation after he represented himself as an agent of the U.S. government and took cash from a genocidal warlord.
Now evidence suggests Shearer, working with his partner Blumenthal, was up to something similar during the 2011 revolution in Libya. And like in the 1990s, the Clintons were lurking on the margins. Much of the intelligence contained in memos fed to the Clinton State Department by Blumenthal was not just self-serving — it was provided by someone with a history of misleading foreign sources, misrepresenting himself as an agent of the U.S. government, and creating trouble for both himself and the United States abroad.
So, a woman who ran her own private email server through which she conducted official government business and who ran her own off-the-books diplomatic and intelligence network now thinks she should be President of the United States… oooh-kay.
I’m telling you, a Hillary Clinton Oval Office would be a thing of beauty: a paranoid law-breaking operation that would make Nixon’s “plumbers” look like Boy Scouts.
Perhaps we should start getting the impeachment papers together now, just in case.
