Hillary Clinton, now the presumptive nominee for the Democrats, is finding more opposition to her potential presidency from Secret Service agent-turned-expose writer Gary Byrne. Talk of her FBI investigation has mysteriously quieted, and while millions of angry young dissenters march on to protest her coronation at the DNC, there is still no indictment and inversely no credible announcement there will not be one.
Gary Byrne offers some interesting related reading while the public waits to find out if Clinton will be prosecuted or not. Byrne tells some bizarre stories about Hillary's treatment of those around her in his tell-all book, Crisis of Character: A White House Secret Service Officer Discloses His Firsthand Experience with Hillary, Bill, and How They Operate. The book made the best sellers list on pre-orders alone, and sales are anticipated to skyrocket. Crisis of Character is currently available on Amazon.
"From the bottom of my soul I know this to be true, and with Hillary's latest rise, I realize that her own leadership style — volcanic, impulsive, enabled by sycophants, and disdainful of the rules set for everyone else — hasn't changed a bit."Hillary Clinton's recent attacks on Donald Trump's temper may say more about the former Secretary of State than they do about the Donald, according to Gary Byrne's new book. Market Watch was the first to note this striking comparison. Comparing these two remarks, one from Byrne about Clinton and the other by Clinton about Trump, they are remarkably similar.
Gary Byrne, who served as a Secret Service agent during the eight years of the Clinton administration, had some shocking stories about the former first lady's temper. He says in summary that she is uncontrollable and lacks integrity.
"[Hillary Clinton is] erratic, uncontrollable and occasionally violent" and "lacks the integrity and temperament" [to serve as president.]"
Hillary Clinton recently said this about Donald Trump.
"He's unqualified to be president" and "temperamentally unfit to be commander-in-chief."
Is Gary Byrne credible? He is a decorated veteran of the Air Force and had a 29-year career in law enforcement. He served in the Secret Service from 1991 until 1998. In 1996, he received an evaluation that was quoted by Breitbart.
"[Gary Byrne is a] Mature and dependable employee who is an exceptionally well-informed member of West Wing detail [who] consistently performs his duties in a highly efficient and conscientious manner."
Hillary Clinton is exposed in Gary Byrne's Crisis of Character. Quotes and other information were made available on Breitbart.
"[Being assigned to Hillary Clinton's detail] was a form of punishment handed down by passive-aggressive middle management."
Gary Byrne relates that Mrs. Clinton threw the book at an agent once, literally.
"She once threw a Bible at an agent on her detail, hitting him in the back of the head. He bluntly let her know it wasn't acceptable. He told me that story himself."
Hillary Clinton was routinely verbally abusive to her guards, even if they just said hello to her in a hallway, according to Byrne. In Crisis of Character, he describes an incident that led to a written apology, though tellingly, not directly from the first lady.
"One day, UD [Uniformed Division] officers met to review events at their respective post-S. A bewildered new officer arrived. 'Hey you'll never believe it, but I passed the First lady and she told me to go to hell!' A second young officer responded, 'You think that's bad? I passed her on the West Colonnade, and all I said was 'Good morning, First Lady.' She told me, 'Go f— yourself.' 'Are you serious?' 'Go f— yourself!' He imitated her, pointing a finger."
Could Hillary Clinton also be seen as prone to paranoia from the situation described in the following excerpt from Crisis of Character quoted by Breitbart? This one seems truly strange. Hillary was complaining about the Secret Service to Bill, claiming they were conspiring against Bill's administration.
"'They f—ed us, Bill!' Hillary screamed. I stifled a laugh. The president tried his best to calm her down. He couldn't. Hillary Clinton possessed no perspective. 'We need to get rid of these assholes, Bill!' She thought she was being tough—in command—but the issue commanded her. She fumed that the Secret Service's Uniformed Division, my branch, disloyal leftovers from Papa Bush, conspired against the administration. 'They've had it out for us from the beginning!' she kept yelling."
Gary Byrne dealt with Hillary's behavior first hand for eight years. He endured a lot from his post right outside the Oval Office. He saw Mrs. Clinton frequently and knew first hand how difficult she could be, as did the rest of the Secret Service staff.
"Most of us knew to brace for her inevitable eruptions. They didn't happen every day, but behind closed doors, we learned about them fast. In public, she was everyone's best friend. Privately, she was her normal self. Hillary's antics made my job interesting. She'd explode in my face without reservation or decorum..."
Hillary Clinton was quoted by CNN asking some rhetorical questions about Donald Trump's hypothetical presidency.
"Do we want him making those calls -- someone thin-skinned and quick to anger, who lashes out at the smallest criticism?" Do we want his finger anywhere near the button?"
Hilary Clinton's finger might not be safe anywhere near that button either, according to Gary Byrne.
