Hillary: The Untamed Shrew?

A book written by former Secret Service agent Gary Byrne, who protected Bill Clinton, appears to corroborate other violent incidents from Hillary toward Bill Clinton  from various books written in the past, including an event described by a former FBI agent who served in the the Clinton White House, the Daily Caller website reports. According to the website, former FBI agent Gary Aldrich wrote in his 1990s book titled, “Unlimited Access: An FBI Agent Inside the Clinton White House,” a telling incident that apparently happened at the start of Bill Clinton’s first term in the Oval Office. Aldrich writes in chapter 1 what happened in 1993, the day the Clintons moved into the White House on inauguration day: “After taking the oath, Bill and Hillary Clinton were taken to a holding room in the Capitol building. Minutes passed while everyone waited for Bill and Hillary to emerge to commence the inaugural festivities. A Capitol Hill police officer was ordered to inform the Clintons that everyone was ready and waiting.

"The policeman knocked and opened the door of the holding room. He immediately shut it, beating a hasty retreat. Hillary Clinton was screaming at her husband in what was described as ‘uncontrolled and unbridled fury.’ Apparently, the matter of office space was not settled."

Democrats are disputing the accuracy of the account in the latest book, "Crisis of Character: A White House Secret Service Officer Discloses His Firsthand Experience with Hillary, Bill, and How They Operate," by Gary J. Byrne. The book is scheduled for release on June 28 -- just in time for the Democratic convention.

Byrne, who was stationed at the White House during Bill Clinton's presidency, "exposes what he saw of the real Hillary Clinton," according to the book's description released by its publisher, Hachette Book Group. It refers to a presidency beset by "personal and political dysfunction" and a First Family engaged in constant "political and personal machinations."
Portions of the text obtained by the Rupert Murdoch-owned New York Post and available on as a preview lay out some of the details. "Hillary Clinton is now poised to become the Democratic nominee for President of the United States, but she simply lacks the integrity and temperament to serve in the office," Byrne wrote, according to the New York Post. "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." Clinton campaign spokesman Nick Merrill told the Post Byrne's book is the latest of many attempts by authors to cash in on the election with "nonsense." "It should be put in the fantasy section of the book store," Merrill said. Clinton has faced criticism by former Secret Service officers before, according to WTVC-TV in Washington, D.C. In Ron Kessler's "The First Family Detail," former officers described protecting Hillary Clinton in the 1990s as one of the worst assignments and claimed she was rude to them, the TV station reported. Dan Emmett, who served under Clinton and both Bushes, wrote in "Within Arm's Length: A Secret Service Agent's Definitive Inside Account of Protecting the President" that Hillary treated officers like "hired help." Byrne goes considerably further in his account, at one point inferring that Hillary gave Bill a "real, live, put-a-steak-on-it black eye" during a fight, according to the New York Post. He also describes disposing of towels stained with lipstick and bodily fluids to eliminate evidence of Bill Clinton's affairs. "Crisis of Character" is currently number one on Amazon's best-seller list, but the "Secret Service agents vs Clinton" tell-all is just one sub-genre of the bustling anti-Clinton book industry.
