Hillary Clinton Campaign Manager Admits 2008 Birther Link

Patti Solis Doyle, who was Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager in 2008 until the Iowa caucuses, admitted on Friday that a Clinton campaign staffer had, in fact, circulated the Birther conspiracy theory that Barack Obama was born outside the U.S. and therefore potentially ineligible to serve in the presidency.

Doyle made the admission on Twitter, as she responded to former George W. Bush spokesman Ari Fleischer. Fleischer said that Clinton’s staff had spread the rumor. Doyle said that was a “lie” — but admitted, in the same tweet, that she had fired the “rogue” staffer who had used email to spread the Birther conspiracy theory.

Doyle appeared about an hour later on CNN with Wolf Blitzer to address the issue once again. She denied that Hillary Clinton had started the Birther theory — then admitted that someone in the Clinton campaign had, in fact, been involved. Here is part their exchange:

Hear that silence? That's the sound of Hillary's campaign engine with the switch in the 'off' position.

So of course Trump tells the truth again. Come on people wake up. Vote Trump 2016

Trump Iand everyone) was saying it back then.
We all knew he was ineligible to be POTUS.
Trump knew it. Sheriff Apaio knew it. Hillary knew it.
But the bankers had their way.
And now, the bankers have told Barry to help get Hillary elected.
It is all theatre.

Hundreds of articles over the past 8 years on a subject that was merely rumors started by a member of the democrat party to get Hillary elected instead of Obama. This is a perfect example of the far right running rampant with a news item of rumors - never being able to prove to me what they keep stirred up. If it is true FOX's investigative reporting will prove it. IMO it is a waste to use the far right as your place to to go to find truth.

6:06 - Ok there big shot. So you think it is just the right running rampant? If we have learned anything during this election cycle it is clearly the democrats and all the MSM media who would not know the truth if it infected them with pneumonia. The republicans and Trump look like saints next to your clowns.

6:06-Clinton's staff back then claimed it was "a small group of hardcore Clinton supporters" who started it. I guess you still believe Benghazi was the "spontaneous reaction to a video" too? And Clinton used a private server so she would only have to carry one device? Turns out she used 13. The list of her lies are endless. ENDLESS.
If you haven't figured out yet to take anything out of her mouth with a grain of salt then you are nothing but a fool. Either a fool or someone who is void of any morals and any decency and can excuse and overlook a liar.
