The Hillary Clinton campaign is going – well, as expected—miserably, a throwback to the 2008 Democratic primaries. The former Secretary of State is facing a Congressional investigation over her mishandling of the Benghazi scandal that left U.S. service personnel and U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens dead. If that weren’t enough, allegations surfaced that Hillary used her private email server at her State Department post. Without the security of an official server, Hillary may have compromised sensitive intel, undermining the operations of the entire U.S. intelligence and potentially even endangering national security.
Now The Washington Post has reported that Hillary’s gal pal, confidante and advisor, Cheryl Mills, dabbled in personal business pursuits and held a private job negotiating with Abu Dhabi while working as Hillary’s chief of staff at the State Department. “During her first four months at the State Department, Mills also held another high-profile job: She worked part time at New York University, negotiating with officials in Abu Dhabi to build a campus in that Persian Gulf city,” noted the Post.
In yet another imbroglio, Hillary finds herself trapped by corruption. This is not the first time the Hillary camp has engaged in side-dealings. The abuse of authority is the launching pad for Hillary Clinton’s ascendency. The Post explained, “Another key Clinton aide, Huma Abedin, spent her last six months as Clinton’s deputy chief of staff in 2012 simultaneously employed by the Clinton Foundation, the family’s global charity, and a consulting company with close Clinton connections.” The Abedin affair exemplifies the problematic nature of the Clinton Foundation.
“Mills’ situation raises questions about how one of the State Department’s top employees set boundaries between her public role and a private job that involved work on a project funded by a foreign government.”

Sidney Blumenthal, the Bill Clinton advisor that launched a crusade against Monica Lewinsky, leaking libelous claims to the press and slut-shaming the young intern into submission, was, unsurprisingly, in the middle of another tryst. The man is the human-equivalent of the semen-soaked dress, according to Reason Magazine. As a long-time Clinton attack hound, Blumenthal exploited Hillary’s top-post at the State Department for his own personal and monetary gain.
A Congressional investigation led by Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) revealed Blumenthal and Sec. Clinton exchanged thousands of personal correspondences via the private email server. At the time, Blumenthal was working for the Clinton Foundation and urged the Sec. of State to provide privileged information on the economic and political climate of Libya.
“The emails, provided by Sidney Blumenthal, a close adviser to Mrs. Clinton, include information about weapons that were circulating in Libya and about the security situation in Benghazi in the year and a half before the attacks,” reported the The New York Times, “In the emails he gave to the committee, there are several references to weapons in Libya. One describes how a Libyan opposition leader feared that the United States did not want to provide weapons to opposition groups because the arms could fall into the hands of Al Qaeda or other radical Islamist groups. Another email included a list of weapons said to be possessed by the government of Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi.” Blumenthal now stands accused of exploiting this State Department-provided intelligence for his own business dealings.
This sounds awfully familiar and similar to the facts surrounding the new Mills’ case. "The arrangement, which Mills discussed for the first time publicly in an interview with The Washington Post, is another example of how Clinton as Secretary of State allowed close aides to conduct their public work even as they performed jobs benefiting private interests,” asserted the Post, adding, “Mills’ situation raises questions about how one of the State Department’s top employees set boundaries between her public role and a private job that involved work on a project funded by a foreign government.”
