Was Hillary Clinton’s Top Confidant Spreading Birther Rumors in ’08? (Video)

Mainstream media was quick to brand Donald Trump’s claim about Hillary Clinton’s involvement in the birther movement an outright lie. But former McClatchy D.C. Bureau Chief James Asher’s tweets have cast doubt on that claim.

In 2008, Asher wrote that long-time Clinton confidant Sidney Blumenthal had encouraged him to investigate the rumor that Obama was not born in America, according to Fox News.

Radio host Richard Fowler dismissed the tweets on The Kelly File, saying he doesn’t know who Asher is and his tweets need to be fact-checked.

Fowler acknowledged that the birther conspiracy could have roots in the Democratic anti-Obama PAC, People United Means Action (PUMA), but said “there’s no connection to the Hillary Clinton campaign.”

Megyn Kelly countered Fowler’s last assertion, pointing out that Sid Blumenthal is closely connected to Clinton.

“That’s her top aide, that’s her guy, that’s her right-hand man!”

Once again, Hillary is caught in a blatant lie and mainstream media is continuing to blame Donald Trump for the birther movement and of course, liberals and Democrats refuse to believe the truth.
