Dan Moldea is an investigative reporter and author who is currently working for Larry Flynt. Moldea seems to have good sources in the intelligence community, which is always problematic. Let's just say that in such relationships both sides generally benefit.

Joseph Cannon recently had this to say about Moldea:

I know from a first-hand source -- whom I will name, if legally pressed -- that Dan Moldea had privately complained that the major publishers had "blackballed" him after he wrote a book called Interference: How Organized Crime Influences Professional Football. The blackballing stopped the moment he agreed to write a book about the Robert F. Kennedy assassination pushing the "lone nut" hypothesis.

For more on that work, read Jim DiEugenio's brief review here.
Moldea maintains that he set out to do a pro-conspiracy book but became convinced that Sirhan Sirhan acted alone.

Recently Dan Moldea had this to say:

A few months ago, Moldea says, he learned from an "impeccable'' source that "an unnamed group of former intelligence officers have done an opposition research campaign against Bill Clinton, which is tantamount to a smear campaign, which concentrates on his activities since he left the White House. This is coming out, and that's when I said, 'We've got to get back to work.'''

"Who knows when they are going to pull the trigger on this, but we're going to unleash hell when that happens,'' he says.
Moldea told the Washington Post:

"I have it on very, very good authority that major opposition research has already been conducted on Bill Clinton, and it's going to be a massive smear campaign against him," he says. A group of former intelligence officers, he says, is "going to try to cripple Hillary through Bill."
Moldea knows a thing or two about the "Clinton scandals". In the same article he tells how he was asked by Regnery, a conservative publisherto do a book about the death of Vince Foster.

Many in the conservative media saw foul play, but Moldea found "instead of the Clintons being involved in some grand conspiracy to either murder Vince Foster or cover up the circumstances of his death, that in fact it was a conspiracy among certain right-wing journalists to make it look that way.''

I think Moldea will need to re-evaluate this "smear" campaign he warns of. Seems our Ms. Hillary is allies with Rupert Murdoch, takes contributions from him, and if you think any msm sources are going to be "smearing" a Murdoch ally in print of video, or radio, you need to think again. The fix is in: Hillary is the Chosen Democratic candidate. Take that to the bank.
