New Book Drops Explosive Claims About The Dealings Of The Clinton White House

In the world of books related to topics of a political nature, it takes an awful lot to raise eyebrows and move the needle. That’s because it’s all been said and done by this point in time. Our nation’s political figures - both past and present - are far from perfect, and there have been plenty of skeletons in the closet that have already been exposed for all to see. This is all pretty common knowledge for those that have even a passing interest in the world of politics, and there’s just not a whole lot left that will really give people pause.

However, this new book from New York Times best-selling author Gary Byrne just might do the trick. The book is entitled ‘Secrets of the Secret Service: The History and Uncertain Future of the US Secret Service,’ and it paints a picture of an agency that just may have seen better days. In fact, Byrne seems to suggest that the agency as a whole is in crisis, and that could lead to problems down the road for President Donald Trump.

As the Daily Mail shares, the book is chock full of interesting tidbits, as it spans through a number of different presidential administrations and their interactions with the Secret Service. Special attention is given to the timeframe when former President Bill Clinton was in office, and one line in particular is rather telling as Byrne describes the overall mood of agents that were assigned to protect the Clintons.

“The view from the front lines, however, was that something, somehow, was bound to ensnare them. It was simply a matter of the right scandal,” he wrote.

There have always been a ton of rumblings that things weren’t always on the up and up when it came to Bill and Hillary Clinton. While there have been some investigations here and there, there has never been what can be described as concrete evidence that the couple's hands are dirty because of those scandals. For some observers, that’s because there’s nothing to see here. Other observers aren’t so sure, and they’re downright stunned that the Clintons can seemingly get away with whatever they want.

So where does the actual truth lay? We have no idea, but we’ll fashion a guess that it’s somewhere in the neighborhood of where other truths are found: right smack dab in the middle. If the Clintons were completely guilt-free, the dust would’ve settled a long time ago. If they were as nefarious as some folks are suggesting, we would also like to assume that it would’ve caught up to them by now. It certainly hasn’t if that’s the case, and some claims made by Byrne just may well open up even more speculation.

Byrne writes that members of the Secret Service “knowingly allowed Chinese generals, disguised in civilian clothing, to meet administration personnel at the White House and logged them as 'business guests' at the administration's request so as to avoid transparency.”

Hmmm. So what were they doing there? Byrne claims that they would arrive with strange brown paper bags, and that agents 'willfully ignored the contents of the generals' paper bags brought to those meetings.’

Maybe the generals decided to bring their own lunch? Probably not, but we’re trying really hard to convince ourselves that there can’t possibly be anything to see here.
