I have begun to think that he was part of the Dark Illuminati and took a large part in the downfall and slander of Marie Antoinette.

I don't know that Jefferson was in to all that the way some others were, but he did slander Marie Antoinette, making some quite ugly statements about her. It was uncalled for, since she received him and his daughter very graciously. Besides, the king did a lot to help the American cause; it was ungrateful of Jefferson to speak ill of Louis' wife. But Jefferson was close friends with Lafayette, with whom Marie-Antoinette did not get on too well.
