Several E-Mails that mentioned “Benghazi” were not turned over to the Benghazi Committee suggesting other missing Hillary Clinton E-mails, Correspondence and Documents
BENGHAZI-related E-Mails were a focus of many questions directed at Sidney Blumenthal during his deposition on Tuesday — But source identifies the initiator of the private Libyan intelligence sent to Hillary Clinton as Ex- CIA hand Tyler Drumheller
POLITICO’S REPORT ABOUT SPECIFIC BENGHAZI E-MAILS NOT TURNED OVER BY HILLARY CLINTON OR U.S. STATE DEPARTMENTIn a Wednesday night article posted by Politico, reporter Rachel Bade states that “The State Department or Hillary Clinton withheld emails from the House Benghazi committee that explicitly mentioned Democratic messaging following the 2012 terrorist attack, even though the panel had specifically asked for those kinds of correspondence to be turned over, POLITICO has learned.... The House Select Committee on Benghazi has in its possession an email exchange — dated just a few weeks after the U.S. diplomatic compound in Libya was overrun and four Americans were killed — in which Sidney Blumenthal forwarded the Democratic presidential front-runner links to blog posts blasting the GOP for politicizing the attacks, a congressional source tells POLITICO....” ( See “Hillary Clinton emails mentioning Benghazi kept from panel: by Rachael Bade, 6/17/15, Politico [http://www.politico.com/story/2015/06/clinton-emails-mentioning-benghazi-kept-from-panel-119140.html]).
The Politico article goes on to say a congressional source indicated that some of the new E-Mails are clearly linked to Benghazi. That source says it would suggest other E–mails correspondence, and documents about Benghazi might also have fallen through the cracks.
According to the Politico article, on October 10th 2012, Sidney Blumenthal wrote, “Got all this done,” in an E-Mail to Hillary Clinton, that included this: “Complete refutation on Libya smear. Philippe can circulate these links. Sid...” The Politico reporter then explained, “[Mr.] Blumenthal was referring to four posts by Media Matters — a left-leaning, pro-Clinton group — that blasted the Benghazi responses from then-GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney and other Republicans, which he pasted in the body of the email. Blumenthal, a Clinton ally, is close to the group’s founder David Brock, another Clinton confidant — and has advised the organization, and others like it, on and off over the past few years.... ‘Philippe’ likely refers to Clinton’s top spokesperson, Philippe Reines....”
ABC REPORTED PRIVATE BENGHAZI E-MAILS WERE FROM EX-CIA GUY, TYLER DRUMHELLERAccording to a text report on the ABC News blog, “Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had access to the world’s top intelligence agencies and their resources, but at the most turbulent moment of her tenure as the nation’s top diplomat, she received a stream of intelligence on Libya and the Benghazi attack by a former CIA official working outside the government....” (See “Tyler Drumheller Was the Man Behind Hillary Clinton's Private Libya Intel, Sources Say”

The internet article authored by ABC’s Benjamin Siegel and John Parkinson also noted that “.... Sidney Blumenthal, a confidant who was paid by the Clinton Foundation, told the Select Committee on Benghazi Tuesday that the information he supplied the sitting Secretary of State came from a ‘respected former high-ranking CIA official.’...” And in addition, that “.... Sources close to the Benghazi investigation identified the official as Tyler Drumheller, a 25-year veteran of the CIA who retired from the agency in 2005 and has since worked in private consulting.... In 2011 and 2012, sources say Drumheller wrote two dozen memos regarding Libya and the Benghazi attack, mainly about the civil war.... [Hillary] Clinton often sent Drumheller’s memos to aides with instructions to print, or ‘distribute as you determine,’ according to emails released by the State Department. While some featured approving commentary ( ‘very interesting,’ she wrote on an August 2012 memo on Libya’s new president), others were met with more skepticism ( ‘This one strains credulity,’ she wrote of a March 2012 memo claiming France and the United Kingdom engineered Libya’s civil war.)...”
