John Podesta On Sid Blumenthal: ‘Shoot Me If I Ever End Up Like That’

The Free Beacon reports:
Clinton campaign chair John Podesta took a swipe at Sid Blumenthal, a longtime Clinton ally, in newly hacked emails that show no love lost between the two longtime Democratic operatives.

Podesta accused Blumenthal of lacking self-awareness during a testy private email exchange published by the hacker website WikiLeaks.

Podesta, founder of the Clinton-aligned Center for American Progress, and his colleague Neera Tanden discussed providing cover for Clinton after it was revealed that Blumenthal may have provided her with intelligence reports.

“It always amazes me that people like Sid either completely lack self awareness or self respect,” Podesta wrote in the 2015 exchange. “Maybe both. Will you promise to shoot me if I ever end up like that?”

Tanden also takes a shot at Blumenthal, writing, “Sidney sure is the gift that keeps giving!”


  1. Podesta should be careful what he asks for. With the Clintons' history, there's a pretty decent chance of them following through on that.
