FLASHBACK: Sid Blumenthal Lobbied Hillary Clinton On Behalf Of Pro-Putin Georgian Politician

In September 2012, Hillary Clinton’s longtime friend and informal adviser, Sidney Blumenthal, sent an email to the then-secretary of state’s secret email account touting a Georgian politician allied with Russia’s president Vladimir Putin.

In the email, Blumenthal wrote on behalf of John Kornblum, a former ambassador to Germany who was working as a consultant for Bidzina Ivanishvili, a Georgian billionaire who was head of the Georgian Dream political party.

Ivanishvili, a Putin ally, was running for president against Mikheil Saakashvili, an ally of the U.S.

The email has already been reported — first by Gawker and with limited pickup on other news websites — but it’s worth revisiting amid allegations that President Trump’s advisers have kept secret their meetings with Russian government officials and others linked to the Kremlin.
