Sid Blumenthal Unloaded on Tea Party in ‘Confidential’ Three-Page Memo to Hillary Clinton
Sid Blumenthal unloaded on the Tea Party in a formerly confidential three-page memo to Hillary Clinton.
The August 2010 memo from the trusted Clinton adviser, revealed Monday night after the State Department released a new batch of Clinton emails, provided the then-secretary of state with “some language on extremism and the Republican Party.”
“The Republican Party today is a captive party. It is captive to the swamp fevers of the extreme right,” Blumenthal wrote at the outset of the memo. “It is captive to its out-of-power desperation for political power—willing to do and say anything to grab it—willing to use extremists to help climb back to power—willing to give the extremists power. No one is speaking up for responsible conservatism within the Republican Party.”
