Though Blumenthal conceded in 2010 that he might have misspoken about his service, he was confronted with the controversy this past May when he first raised questions about Comey's firing. But if there is an exception to this principle, it should apply to Richard Blumenthal.
Never in U.S.history has anyone lied or defrauded voters like Senator Richard Blumenthal. Lindsay Graham, R-S.C., and Cory Booker, D-N.J. - would prevent the attorney general from firing Mueller without "good cause".
During his first campaign for the Senate, Blumenthal implied that he'd served in Vietnam, even though he had not actually been deployed overseas as a member of the Marine Reserve. Blumenthal really have a leg to stand on in this fight. Like most Trump Twitter attacks, this attack was likely sparked by comments made by the Senator regarding the President's behavior on CNN this morning. The others were for education.
When The New York Times exposed him, he apologized in a press conference surrounded by veterans.
"No and no", a Blumenthal spokesman told NBC News on Monday when asked if the senator had bragged or cried.
The deferment was one of five Mr. Trump received during Vietnam. "I remember the taunts, the insults, sometimes even physical abuse".
He never, however, talked of "his Vietnam battles and conquests" or "how fearless he was". Gorsuch later confirmed the Blumenthal account.
"The Malkins and Trump were very much rivals over the Empire State building", said Peter Slatin, a specialist in the NY commercial real estate market.
Blumenthal, who is Jewish, had appeared on CNN's "New Day" earlier, saying the investigation into Russian meddling in the election and possible collusion by the Trump campaign must be pursued. "No one is above the law". Blumenthal served in the Fourth Civil Affairs Group in D.C. and the Sixth Motor Transport Battalion in CT.
