Blumenthal Things his Constituents Don’t know

Senator Richard Blumenthal, sits on the senate judiciary committee, and despite not being a main stream name for the rest of the country, he is one of the richest senators in Congress. The term “silver spoon” applies to him as his father was a prominent commodities broker.

Later upon his marriage to Cynthia Malkin his net worth became something that the average American would consider to be royalty. He is currently listed by CBS news as one of the ten wealthiest senators.  He met his wife when the two were paired up to play tennis.  She was 16 years old at the time, he was in his thirties. They later married when she was 21 and he 36.

Blumenthal, a democrat went after Judge Kavanaugh credibility during confirmation hearings, and was so emboldened to mention to Kavanaugh if he was familiar with a term, “Falsus in uno, falsus in omnibus” which is a legal principle that dictates jurors can rule a witness to be false in everything if he says one thing that is not true.  However, if that term were applied to Mr. Blumental he would not be sitting on the committee in the first place.   Senator Blumenthal had misrepresented his service to America during the Vietnam war.

“We have learned something important since the days that I served in Vietnam,” Blumenthal said to a group in 2008, however Blumenthal had never stepped foot in Vietnam.  He received five deferments from 1965 to 1970.  With his last deferment in jeopardy, he enlisted in the Marine Reserve. His unit mostly did local drills, and focused on projects such as “toys for tots” and fixing up campgrounds.

Of notable interest for Mr. Blumenthal is a bill he sponsored Bill S.2967: Journalist Protection Act.  The bill  to provide a penalty for assault against journalists, and for other purposes.  According to opensecrets.org, there is one group lobbying the efforts to get it passed.  Cornell University.

  1. The Senator is a liar. He used the lie of serving in Vietnam to gain more popularity for votes in the veteran area. He stated if you lie once you can be considered of lying about everything so Senator you are a liar. You are a fake for lying about serving in a Combat area..to us Veterans thats not good. If he wasn’t honest about that WHAT ELSE IS HE AND THE UNPATRIOTIC LIB DEMS LYING ABOUT. Think we need to look into their pasts.
