A former Secret Service agent commented on what he called a lie by Hillary Clinton, saying he feels compelled to expose the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee.
Former agent Gary Byrne said Clinton’s 2008 claim in a speech that she was under sniper fire during a 1996 mission to Bosnia was “a flat-out lie.”
“Anybody that worked around them (Clintons) in the Secret Service, when they saw that they started laughing their faces off because they knew that was a flat-out lie,” Byrne said on Fox News’ “Hannity” on Monday.
Clinton’s claim of dodging enemy fire was later exposed as video footage showed a completely different scene of a friendly greeting from the landing at Tuzla Air Force Base. Clinton said she “misspoke” when confronted with the evidence, coming under fire by military veterans for her comments.
According to Byrne, the only thing that the military had the Clintons do was to sit on their flak vest as they got closer to the landing zone, a standard procedure, he told host Sean Hannity.
Byrne, who is the author of “Crisis of Character,” noted that he was “not comfortable” with the subject but “feels so strongly that people need to know the real Hillary Clinton and how dangerous she is in her behavior.”
“She is not a leader,” he said. “She doesn’t have the temperament. She didn’t have the temperament to handle the social office when she was first lady.”
Byrne further noted that Clinton is “dishonest” and “habitually lies.”
He admitted that if the presumptive Democratic nominee “did become the president without me speaking the truth, I’m not sure I could deal with that.”
“People need to know this is serious and her behavior is appalling,” he said, “and she’s two different people.”
