And this business about his advice being unsolicited doesn't pass the smell test:
“Are you still awake?” she wrote in an email to Blumenthal sent on Oct. 8, 2009, at 10:35 P.M. that does not provide details on the issue prompting the message. “I will call if you are.”
And it took a while for her to get the hang of being in the loop:
Although, even as she lacked info on regime goings-on, the regime knew something that's now very noteworthy about her:
New Hillary Clinton e-mails released late Tuesday night by the State Department reveal that, despite denials to the contrary, top Obama-administration officials were aware, within the first nine months of President Obama’s first term, of then–secretary of state Hillary Clinton’s use of a private e-mail server to conduct government business. The White House has not said when President Obama and his lieutenants first learned of Clinton’s use of a private e-mail server, noting only that they became aware in August 2014, after Republican lawmakers got hold of the information, that it could become a political problem. But e-mails from 2009 show that chief of staff Rahm Emanuel and senior adviser David Axelrod understood at the time that Clinton used a private e-mail account and server for official business. Indeed, top officials were forced to explicitly ask Clinton aides for her e-mail address.Fast forward to two weeks ago and watch David Axelrod blatantly lie about this to the hosts of MSNBC's Morning Joe. And try to evade the whole subject with that tried and true weasel tactic "We should be focusing on what the people care about."
John Podesta and Rahm Emanuel knew, too.
This is some rotten stuff.
