The author of a book detailing the bitter feud between the Clintons and the Obamas offered a new spin on the Hillary Clinton email scandal, pinning the blame blame for Hillary Clinton’s current troubles on a plot hatched in the White House itself.
And emails aren’t the only areas the plot is targeting Clinton.
On “Fox & Friends” Wednesday, “Blood Feud” author Ed Klein said the controversy was sparked by President Obama and his top advisor Valerie Jarrett “leaking information to the mainstream media.”
Obama and Jarrett are determined to deny Clinton a shot at the White House, Klein said.
What’s more, he said former President Bill Clinton backs him up on this theory.
Klein claimed that his White House sources — unnamed — told him that Clinton is now the target of “not one but six different investigations prompted by the White House.”
According to Klein’s State Department sources — also unnamed, “tons of documents [are] being wheeled through the corridors from Clinton’s old offices, and they’re going through these looking for problems on her expense account, on her dealings with foreign leaders,” Klein told Clayton Morris.
“All of this, I’m told, is prompted by Valerie Jarrett and the president, who do not want to see Hillary Clinton president of the United States.” Klein said, because the White House feels Clinton is too “centrist” to carry on the Obama legacy.
Klein didn’t say what that legacy was.
Klein also didn’t address the real issue — that Clinton not only broke White House rules, but also held herself above her own rules with respect to the use of private emails to conduct official business.
And her news briefing on the issue did little to quiet the waters.
Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., told Greta Van Susteren Tuesday that she actually created more questions that she answered.
The Associated Press took it even further. It fact-checked her statements and found that she told at least five whoppers during her brief appearance.
Now Klein may be correct in saying that the White House sicced the mainstream media on Clinton — possibly even the AP.
But a lie is still a lie, and a wrong is still a wrong, and all the explanation in the world won’t change that.
