Edward Klein has a bombshell report at The New York Post about Hillary Clinton’s email scandal. According to Klein, it was President Obama’s closest adviser Valerie Jarrett who leaked the details of her email scandal to The New York Times, but did so through sources outside of the White House so it couldn’t be traced back to her. Knowing what we do about Jarrett, this certainly seems plausible.
Oh, and that’s not all…
In addition, at Jarrett’s behest, the State Department was ordered to launch a series of investigations into Hillary’s conduct at Foggy Bottom, including the use of her expense account, the disbursement of funds, her contact with foreign leaders and her possible collusion with the Clinton Foundation.
Six separate probes into Hillary’s performance have been going on at the State Department. I’m told that the e-mail scandal was timed to come out just as Hillary was on the verge of formally announcing that she was running for president — and that there’s more to come.
Members of Bill Clinton’s camp say the former president suspects the White House is the source of the leak and is furious.
So, why the bad blood between Jarrett and Clinton?
Last fall, during the run-up to the 2014 midterm elections, Jarrett was heard to complain bitterly that the Clintons were turning congressmen, senators, governors and grass-root party members against Obama by portraying him as an unpopular president who was an albatross around the neck of the party.
Jarrett was said to be livid that most Democrats running for election refused to be seen campaigning with the president. She blamed the Clintons for marginalizing the president and for trying to wrestle control of the Democratic Party away from Obama. (Read More)
William Teach raises the point that if this is true, White House officials were aware all along of Clinton’s use of private email on a private server in violation of federal rules.
So, is Jarrett doing us all a favor, or will taking down Hillary just open things up for someone even worse?
