Sometime after his 9-hour session before the House Select Committee on Benghazi, former Clinton White House adviser Sidney Blumenthal let it be known that he has no first-hand knowledge of Benghazi, and his personal email was hacked by criminals using a Russian server. Fox News’ Chad Pergram reports:

Politico made no mention of the alleged email hacking in its report, but it did report Blumenthal’s claim that he “merely copied and pasted memos from Tyler Drumheller, a former CIA officer who was working on a Libya business venture, and sent them to [Secretary of State Hillary] Clinton.”

Blumenthal says he did not write, know the source of, or verify any of the intelligence he passed on to Clinton, nor was he compensated for doing so. Sounds about right.
