The New York Times has published two articles on the relationship between former Secretary of State and 2016 Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton and longtime confidant Sidney Blumenthal. It has been known for some time that Blumenthal, barred by the Obama White House from working at State, nevertheless ran "a secret, private intelligence network" for Mrs. Clinton's benefit, "apart from the State Department’s own Bureau of Intelligence and Research."
According To Emails Released By The New York Times, Hillary Clinton Used The Account firstname.lastname@example.org While Secretary Of State. ("Selected Libya-Related Messages From Hillary Clinton's Personal Email Account," The New York Times , 5/18/15)
NOTE: On April 8, 2011, Clinton Messaged Jake Sullivan Using The Account "email@example.com."
NOTE: On January 5, 2012, Clinton Messaged Jake Sullivan Using The Account "firstname.lastname@example.org."
NOTE: On August 28, 2012, Clinton Messaged Jake Sullivan Using The Account "email@example.com."
NOTE: Hillary Clinton Served As Secretary Of State From January 21, 2009 To February 1, 2013.
... In A Letter To Rep. Trey Gowdy, Clinton's Attorney, David Kendall, Stated That "firstname.lastname@example.org " Was "Not An Address That Existed During Secretary Clinton's Tenure As Secretary Of State." (David E. Kendall, Letter To Rep. Trey Gowdy, 3/27/15)
... NOTE: In A Footnote To His Letter To Rep. Gowdy, Kendall States "Secretary Clinton Used One Email Account When Corresponding With Anyone, From Department Officials To Friends To Family." (David E. Kendall, Letter To Rep. Trey Gowdy , 3/27/15)
... In A Statement Circulated By Hillary Clinton's Office, Clinton Specifically States She Only Used One E-mail During Her Tenure As Secretary Of State. ("Statement From The Office Of Former Secretary Clinton," Office Of Hillary Rodham Clinton, 3/10/15)
Mrs. Clinton and her attorney clearly have not told the truth about the number of active email accounts she had during her tenure at State. Also, as seen at the GOP post, her attorney also falsely claimed that the "hrod17" account didn't come into existence until March of 2013.
In a story which as of 11:15 p.m. this evening had already moved more than halfway down the home page at the paper's web site ("What Sidney Blumenthal’s Memos to Hillary Clinton Said, and How They Were Handled"), Times reporter Michael S. Schmidt told readers that "Hillary Rodham Clinton received at least 25 memos about Libya from Sidney Blumenthal, a friend and confidant who at the time was employed by the Clinton Foundation."
A related story ("Clinton Friend’s Memos on Libya Draw Scrutiny to Politics and Business") by Schmidt and Nicholas Confessore set to appear in Tuesday's print edition on Page A17 (!) reports that Mrs. Clinton "took Mr. Blumenthal’s advice seriously, forwarding his memos to senior diplomatic officials in Libya and Washington and at times asking them to respond."
Neither of those stories noted the plainly seen existence of the email@example.com address in three of the emails at the related exhibit.
So what's the billing address at the Times for the invoice the Republican Party should send for journalistic services rendered?
