Ed Klein: Bill Clinton Urging Hillary to Release Benghazi Documents That Would Exonerate Her, Destroy Obamas Re-Election Hopes
Posted on October 24, 2012 at 10:48pm by Jason Howerton
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton ordered additional security for the U.S. mission in Benghazi ahead of the terrorist attack but the orders were never carried out, according to legal counsel to Clinton who spoke to best-selling author Ed Klein.
Those same sources also say former President Bill Clinton has been urging his wife to release official State Department documents that prove she called for additional security at the compound in Libya, which would almost certainly result in President Obama losing the election.
Appearing on TheBlazeTVs Wilkow! on Wednesday night, Klein told host Andrew Wilkow that Bill and Hillary Clinton have been having big fights for two or three weeks about the issue, according to his two sources on Clintons legal counsel.
While Bill Clinton wishes his wife would exonerate herself by releasing the documents that show she wasnt at fault for the tragic security failure in Libya, the secretary of state refuses to do so because she doesnt want to be viewed as a traitor to the Democratic party.
On Glenn Becks radio show earlier on Wednesday, Klein said his information comes from two very good sources.
Wilkow pointed out the obvious, that the Obamas and the Clintons have a very behind the scenes, tense relationship to put it lightly.
I said to you last night, and I think I stand corrected, that it seemed like Obama out-Clintoned the Clintons, Wilkow said. But Clinton seems to have gone along with all of this because he knew that Hillary would be exonerated in the end.
He then asked Klein whether he thought Clinton would resign over the Libya scandal and expose the truth.
No, the author said immediately. I cant imagine that she would resign. It would bring down the entire administration. [Obama] would lose the election and she would be essentially blamed by the left-wing base of the party.
She will not be tarred with the blame for bringing down this administration, Klein added.
In an exclusive interview with TheBlaze, Klein confirmed that Bill and Hillary Clinton have been engaging in heated discussions where the former president has urged his wife to release the documents that would exonerate her.
He reiterated that Clinton has refused to do so because she fears she would look like a Judas, or a traitor, in the administration and it might hurt her chances for a presidential nomination in 2016.
If the claims turn out to be true and Clinton did suggest more security be sent to Benghazi, it is appropriate to ask: why didnt it happen?
Klein said Clintons request for beefed up security would have to go through CIA special ops and or the Pentagon.
But none of that would happen with the National Security advisor to the president of the United States Tom Donnellan going to the president and saying, We want to send reinforcements to Libya because our ambassador is in jeopardy, Klein explained.
Ultimately, he indicated the ultimate authority would have been President Obama.
Wilkow and Klein also discussed what role Obamas closest advisor, Valerie Jarrett, played in the Benghazi cover-up.
By Obamas own admission, Klein said, the president never makes a big decision without first consulting with Jarrett.
We have to assume that Valerie Jarrett, who is also by the way hooked into the Chicago campaign that she was part of this cover-up in the White House.
He continued: The CIA got cables, the Department of Defense got cables, the NSA got cables during the attack on Benghazi, in addition to the emails that have since been made public. We know that there are cables that we havent seen yet, confirming the State Department cables that this was an al-Qaeda linked attack.
These new revelations, following Tuesday nights explosive report that 300 to 400 national security officials received emails detailing the Benghazi terrorist attack as it was happening, raise fresh questions about the truth behind the Benghazi attack.
The emails revealed that the Libyan radical Islamic group Ansar al-Sharia claimed responsibility for the attack just two hours after it began. White House officials told CBS News that an unmanned Predator drone was sent over the U.S. mission in Libya, providing Washington with a live feed to the chaos that unfolded.
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is in a powerful position to make a break and do the right thing. Do the right thing now, Hillary. Just do it.
These people are narcisistic as Obama and only think of themselves and their power and won’t do a thing.
Hillary already sold out to Obama in exchange for him retiring her 2008 campaign debt and it is doubtful she would cross him at this point.
Just remember, when your @$$ is on the line, don’t bother calling Uncle Sam. At least while the Obama regime is running things.
I wish she would out him. Bill my think it’ll improve her prospects to be president, but I think he’s wrong. A sitting president (Romney in the case of 2016) almost never gets beat. And if Romney does what he says he’ll do, she won’t be able to unseat him.
Besides, we deserve to know what really happened.
Out him, hildabeast, out him.
Um, he never paid up.
Just like Springfield and other cities. They never got the check. USPS’s fault don’t ya know.
O C T O B E R S U R P R I S E
They are all trying to figure out how to extricate themselves from this mess and cover their a**es.
They have so many versions of what happened that anything else they come up with is immediately suspect.
Outright lies and contradictions and parsing and nuancing and finger pointing.
The whole fiasco resembles the Keystone Cops, except that 4 died, while this bunch of Keystone Cops sat by and just watched.
Issa should drop a subpoena tomorrow.
Nothing can exonerate Hillary because she has already participated in the coverup.
People that support infanticide are simply NOT capable of doing the right thing on anything. Hillary Clinton shares the exact same values as Obama, both are anti Christian.
Anything she did do would be with her selfish interests at heart...Ya I hope she turns on her fellow scumbag, would be great
This charlatan is incapable of doing the right thing. She railroaded Billy Dale in the Travel Office and tried to ruin his life, she systematically looted Madison Guaranty in Little Rock, she ordered the FBI files of political opposition, and now we are surprised that she participated in a cover-up of her criminal negiligence that resulted in the death of one of her ambassadors with a concocted story that conveniently blamed an American rather than jihadists that she claimed were already defeated?
Resign now, or jail the bitch.
“Hillary already sold out to Obama in exchange for him retiring her 2008 campaign debt and it is doubtful she would cross him at this point.”
You know, I was almost willing to give her some credit for (misplaced) loyalty until reading this.
People bitch about Romney being “rich”. Generally, rich (enough) people can’t be bought. The Clintons were probably among the “poorest” occupants of the WH.
Asking a snake to do the right thing will only get you bitten.
Snakes do not know the difference between right and wrong.
Snakes are snakes.
Right, and they're probably in the same place her Rose Law Firm billing records are.
Even if she did order extra security, the fact that she didn't follow through to make sure it was done still makes her culpable.
Sorry, but I have a hard time believing anything that comes out of a Clinton's mouth, and think this is a bunch of crap.
I agree. Lost in all these lies by Klinton, the State Department and political
Manuevering are the deaths of 4 Americans and the first US Ambassador
Murdered since 1979.
In addition, I don’t believe a word that comes out of the beasts mouth.
It’s all about power for these hacks, 4 dead Americans be damned.
Don’t lose sight of something besides Hillary’s own ambitions - the Chelsea factor. Only Hillary knows whether she really is up for a run in 2016, but Chelsea is 32, and everyone knows that parents will do extraordinary things for their children. It’s easy to say “oh, they’re monsters” but they are real people who have emotions and react like anyone else, and Hillary’s strongest allegiance is never going to be to BHO. I think a major factor is going to be her perception of which action taken now will leave the strongest legacy for herself and perhaps Chelsea down the road. She will never willingly take a bullet for someone else.
“Nothing can exonerate Hillary because she has already participated in the coverup.”
Good luck with that.
