Ed Klein: Bill Clinton Urging Hillary to Release Benghazi Documents

Ed Klein: Bill Clinton ‘Urging’ Hillary to Release Benghazi Documents That Would ‘Exonerate’ Her, Destroy Obama’s 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 TheBlazeTV’s “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 Clinton’s legal counsel.

While Bill Clinton wishes his wife would “exonerate” herself by releasing the documents that show she wasn’t at fault for the tragic security failure in Libya, the secretary of state refuses to do so because she doesn’t want to be viewed as a traitor to the Democratic party.

On Glenn Beck’s 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 can’t 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 didn’t it happen?

Klein said Clinton’s 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 Obama’s closest advisor, Valerie Jarrett, played in the Benghazi cover-up.

By Obama’s 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 haven’t seen yet, confirming the State Department cables that this was an al-Qaeda linked attack.”

These new revelations, following Tuesday night’s 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.

I wouldn’t count on Hillary, the devil’s assistant, to do the “right thing”.

Thanks, I listened to Bettina Viviano video early this morning.

My gosh! What will it take to wake Hillary up? They could have exposed this THREAT in 2008, they have Security Guards.

I believe that same threat is being used against her today. Maybe that is why Chelsea left the country for a spell.

Just goes to show that when you lay down with DOGs, wake up with fleas. The Clintons have been out Clintoned.

You’re absolutely correct, she should speak up. She should put her aspirations and party loyalty aside for the good of her country, but she won’t do the right thing because she doesn’t share our values. The Clintons always test public opinion before acting. So I support your effort to convince her.

She wanted the presidency in 2008. It was within her grasp. She folded a winning hand because she didn’t want to be responsible for dividing the party. In her eyes, this is the same situation regardless of 4 dead Americans (one of them her friend). If she outs Obama, she loses the party’s support and any chance in 2016.

As far as bashing Hillary over Obama, nawww...they are all equally despicable and they are dangerous.

I agree but my hate for Obama is 100 fold.

Hillary really doesn’t have to worry, we will never elect her to anything in this country, and the more she covers up, the less likely it woudl ever happen anyway.

Can anyone say “pardon.”

Keep your mouth shut and if Obama wins, hillary gets pardoned. If Romney wins, it is irrelevant.

Her only hope of salvaging her political career is to come clean. Obama will destroy her if she doesn’t make the first move.

Hillary probably realizes that her best hope of winning in 2016 is for Obama to lose now.

Bill realizes that if she gets out in front of this now it will be a distant memory in four years.

But the biggest thing to remember is that the Clintons HATE Obama and they've been waiting a long time for a chance like this to destroy him.

Interesting about the early colony - I didn’t know that. Friends will like that.

I was very lucky in 7th grade. I had a social studies teacher. He was funny, but other than that unremarkable. 6 foot black hair big nose Jewish body builder, perfect V - twigs for calves, huuuuge up top. Mr. Levine. I remember only one thing he ever said, nothing else. We were studying other forms governments (he wasn’t especially pro American ... it just was what it was and we’d covered the boring memorization of how many in the Senate, House, Branches (evidently Rick Perry missed class that day)), and he introduced Communism, was explaining its founding in Marxism.

Here is what he said, and because of this, I never needed any experience with it, never questioned that it might work - I got it immediately.

He said “Marxism is the best form of government. ... ... ...
... ... ... On paper.” ... and then described the USSR.

Which naturally led to the Winston Churchill characterization - although he didn’t say it - that democracy (and here Winston meant representative, not pure tyranny of the majority) ... that democracy was the worst form of government on the face of the earth, except for all the others.

If we could only get across to the Utopians, that in life there will always be pain, there will always be unfairness, sometimes you’ll win unfairly, sometimes lose unfairly, mostly win fairly, mostly lose fairly. Oh and you might get hit by a car when your 2 1/2.

... and ... the pain utopians cause is just part of that pain.

But there is no state of man that will ever be fully acceptable. Once you get that, you can just get on with what works best - and that’s pretty good. Capitalism is a freaking mess. But its the least worst, and its only because mankind himself, his nature ... is a mess. It’s not a flaw in the theory. You can’t theorize away the fact that man, life, is a mess.

You can’t turn worm soup into an angel food cake. But if you’re worm soup, trying to act like an angel food cake, you only bring suffering on yourself and others.

Imagine a colony of worm soup trying to be a society of angel food cakes. You’d have to kill everyone for looking like and behaving like worm soup ... that is, for being what they already are ... you outlaw it and then everyone is an outlaw but they won’t quit so you impose a death penalty and so then you kill everyone. No more worm soup.

Which corresponds nicely with the record of mankind trying to improve his situation and his experience through mass murder.

Re your reply to my questions re Clinton v. Obama (how different, and who is more dangerous?)


Thanks,Hannibal, for your views about the major differences you see between BO and Clinton — very astute and made tons of sense.

Really appreciate the time you took to lay all that out. Excellent work!

The longer Secretary of Statements Hilly takes to “get to the bottom of this,” the more obvious it is that the Benghazi Cover Up was designed to hide a VERY BIG US SECRET TOPIC.

My guess is that the CIA had discovered that some of the 20,000 Libyan Missiles were found in the possession of Ansar al-Sharia, and Obama knew it.

Can Hilly and Billy keep this a secret until after November 6, 2012?

Keep it a secret until after the November 6th election ?

If people already know that 20,000 Libyan Missiles were in possession of Ansar al-Sharia and Obama knew it.. then it's not a secret anymore.

” - - - My guess is that the CIA had discovered that some of the 20,000 Libyan Missiles were found in the possession of Ansar al-Sharia, and Obama knew it.”

This is just my guess, and the key word is “some.”

Perhaps ? Hillary resigns the Wednesday before the election and says that she can’t endure the pressures that this administration is putting on her to cover up this scandal.

You’re missing the point. This article is outing Obama and exhonerating Hillary...without actually outing Obama ang exhonerating Hillary. They both must know the poop is gonna hit at some point. In anycase, Bill is releasing the information by not releasing the information. We’re all reading it, aren’t we?

The Obama campaign is just about ready to crumble.....this is like a big leak from a dike with many leaks in it already.

Eat or be eaten? Would Obama throw Hillary under the bus before or after the election?

This is a woman who chose, while a law student, to volunteer her time defending the Black Panthers. From torturing a member to death with boiling water. She is just as much of a monster as Obama is.
