Remember Valerie Plame? Turns Out She’s A White Supremacist Now…
Valerie Plame, the former CIA operative made famous during a scandal of the Bush administration, shared an article on Twitter on Thursday from a white nationalist site, entitled, “America’s Jews Are Driving America’s Wars.”

She has appeared as a political commentator on MSNBC recently.
