In newly released communications from August 2010, then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her longtime ally Sidney Blumenthal joked about a “vast right wing conspiracy.”

The conversation was in reference to a New Yorker article about the Koch brothers that had been sent to her titled, “The billionaire brothers who are waging a war against Obama.”

The subject line of the email from Blumenthal said, “H: Yes there is a vast right wing conspiracy. Sid.”

It went on to say that the article is “a must read piece that looks at the Koch brothers' control and funding of the tea party and right wing.”

The message was one of more than 3,869 Clinton email messages released Wednesday by the State Department.

Clinton famously made the original comment about a “vast right-wing conspiracy” in 1998 after the allegations first surfaced that then-President Bill Clinton had had an affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky. Blumenthal was involved in the matter and was among those who testified during the president's Senate impeachment trial.
