March 14, 2013: Guccifer accesses the email account of Clinton confidant Sid Blumenthal.

This is one of four Clinton-Blumenthal emails that Guccifer makes public in full, all printed in pink and with a large "G" for "Guccifer" added. Because it was sent on February 16, 2013, two weeks after Clinton's term as secretary of state ended, it has not been released elsewhere. It describes intelligence that prominent Saudis helped fund the 2012 Benghazi terrorist attack.

Guccifer, an unemployed Romanian whose real name is Marcel-Lehel Lazar, breaks into the AmericaOnline (AOL) email account of Blumenthal. Guccifer does not have typical hacking skills but instead attempts to guess passwords and answers security questions. In recent months, he broke into the accounts of famous people, or the friends and family of famous people, including those of former secretary of state Colin Powell and former US president George W. Bush.

He takes screenshots of the text of emails of Clinton and Blumenthal discussing sensitive foreign policy issues during her time as secretary of state. He also takes a screenshot of Blumenthal’s inbox showing a list of the latest emails sent from Clinton.

In the next few days, the screenshots are made public, and for the first time, Clinton’s private email address hdr22@clintonemail.com is revealed to the world. (USA Today, 3/22/2013) (The Smoking Gun, 3/3/2015)
