Report Accuses Hillary Adviser Who Ran Intel Service of Illegally Lobbying for Vladimir Putin Ally

If it was any mystery as to what side loyalties of the Clinton clan lyes on, this should help make it clear.


The Hillary Clinton confidant who was caught running a clandestine intelligence service for her may have also illegally lobbied for Russian President Vladimir Putin’s ally in the nation of Georgia.

According to a Gawker report, Sidney Blumenthal, the top Clinton confidant, and “another former official from Bill Clinton’s administration were secretly lobbying the secretary of state on behalf of a billionaire in the former Soviet state of Georgia who was seeking closer ties with Putin’s Russia—seemingly in violation of a federal law designed to prevent foreign powers from covertly wielding influence within the United States.”

Blumenthal “passed along a note from John Kornblum, an international lawyer who had served as ambassador to Germany under Bill Clinton,” to Clinton that lobbied on behalf of Oligarch Bidzina Ivanishvili, a Georgian billionaire who “led the opposition Georgian Dream party, which called for closer relations with Russia.” At the time, Ivanishvili “was opposing the incumbent President Mikheil Saakashvili, who had enjoyed U.S. support.” Two years ago, a hacker named Guccifer released some of Blumenthal’s emails, which Gawker has been reviewing.

The memo makes clear that Kornblum was “working with the political party in Georgia opposing Saakashvili”and, according to Gawker, “was a full-throated plea for Clinton to warn Saakashvili not to crack down on Georgian Dream before the elections.” Kornblum also reportedly “passed along a personal letter to Clinton from Ivanishvili himself, in which Ivanishvili accused Saakashvili of undemocratically attacking his party and asking for Clinton’s support: ‘The Georgian people are waiting for a clear signal that America understands and supports their dreams for democracy.’”
