Hillary Clinton took questions from the media in Iowa on Tuesday for the first time in four weeks. When asked about her relationship with longtime Clinton operative Sidney Blumenthal, who was personally advising the State Department while he was employed by the Clinton Foundation and perusing business interests in Libya, the former secretary of state told reporters: “I’m going to keep talking to my old friends, whoever they are.” Talking regularly with Blumenthal, she argued, was a way for her to escape the “bubble” of insider politics.

Longtime Clinton confidante Sid Blumenthal advised Hillary Clinton’s State Department during the conflict in Libya, the New York Times reports.
