    The word inside the beltway is that a longtime adviser to Hillary Rodham Clinton is urging her to hire outside legal counsel and look into cutting a deal with the Feds over the e-Mail scandal currently dogging her presidential campaign, it was reported Tuesday. According to the report Mrs. Clinton was told she needs to act quickly because, contrary to reports that the FBI probe into her use of a private e-Mail server may drag on for months, the investigation may actually wrap up by year’s end. The NY-T’s is reporting that Mrs. Clinton received Top-Secret e-Mails on her unsecured,...

    We can believe Ed Klein’s sources claiming Valerie Jarrett is the White House point woman for the destruction of Hillary Clinton.  Evidence: It was the New York Times which broke the story. The Democratic press does not eat its own, ever.  Yet here was the Gray Lady, setting the headlines for Drudge. People asked how Hillary could have been so stupid.  The answer is that in the normal course of mainstream reporting, there is no Democrat crime too large for the press to cover up.  She knew she was perfectly safe.  Bill Clinton raping women?  That story had no...
  • Valerie Jarrett fingered as the source of leak on Hillary's email server

    According to Ed Klein, writing in the New York Post, President Valerie Jarrett was the source of the information published by the New York Ties on Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server for all her official correspondence as secretary of state. Befitting her status as a behind-the-scenes puppeteer, Jarrett alleged used cut-outs to feed the information to the media, keeping her fingerprints off the dirty Dem-on-Dem deed. Echoing a joke I made five days ago, Klein calls it a “vast left wing conspiracy.”

    Veteran journalist Ed Klein said on Saturday that the Obama administration "is up to its eyebrows in efforts to stop" Hillary Clinton from running for the White House — including six investigations launched by longtime presidential adviser Valerie Jarrett involving Clinton's years as Secretary of State. "This administration, the Obama administration, will do virtually anything to prevent Hillary from becoming president," Klein told renowned economist Larry Kudlow on his WABC radio show. Kudlow is also a Newsmax columnist and works for NBC's business channel, CNBC. "It's their view that if she does become president — like her husband, Bill —...

    Obama adviser behind leak of Hillary Clinton’s email scandal By Edward Klein It’s the vast left-wing conspiracy. Obama senior adviser Valerie Jarrett leaked to the press details of Hillary Clinton’s use of a private e-mail address during her time as secretary of state, sources tell me. But she did so through people outside the ­administration, so the story couldn’t be traced to her or the White House. 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,...

Appearing on Fox and Friends Wednesday morning, Klein said he’s not the only one who buys into that explanation, and that Bill Clinton also believes it. According to Klein’s sources, the White House is leaking information to their “friends in the mainstream media” about Hillary’s actions as Secretary of State.

    Blood Feud, Ed Klein’s new book on the Clintons and the Obamas currently rocketing to the top of the Amazon best seller list even before its official publication day, is a lurid, irresponsible work of yellow journalism filled with suppositions, inaccuracies, myriad anonymous sources, made-up dialogue and (often extreme) bias. In other words, it is essentially like your average front page story in the New York Times. But unlike the Times, Klein gets it essentially right about his subject — the Clintons and the Obamas despise each other. And unlike the Times, Blood Feud is a compulsive read. I dare...

A wall of burly Secret Service agents jumped out and surrounded the man who emerged from the lead vehicle. It was mid-summer 2013, and Bill Clinton looked shrunken...

Mr. Klein seemed disgusted by the notion that Mr Obama is considered to be the "last Kennedy brother" by MSNBC anchor Chris Matthews. : AUDIO STEVE MALZBERG: This relationship between Obama and Ted Kennedy led Chris Matthews, wacko of all wackos in my view, to say that he's now the next, he's the last brother. Obama's the last brother. ED KLEIN: Yeah,...

    This isn't an accusation from Ted Kennedy's political opponents, but a nostalgic remembrance by one of his friends. Ed Klein, former Newsweek editor, tells the Diane Rehm Show: "I dont know if you know this or not, but one of his favorite topics of humor was indeed Chappaquiddick itself. And he would ask people, have you heard any new jokes about Chappaquiddick? That is just the most amazing thing. Its not that he didnt feel remorse about the death of Mary Jo Kopechne, but that he still always saw the other side of everything and the ridiculous side of things,...

    Ed Klein, former editor for Newsweek and New York Times Magazine, was a close personal friend of Ted Kennedy and decided to share some memories of the late Senator on The Diane Rehm Show.

    Veteran journalist Ed Klein, a former editor of the New York Times Sunday Magazine, caught a lot of mainstream media grief last summer when he unleashed The Truth About Hillary, his blunt and deliberately one-sided trashing of the politics and personality of Hillary Clinton. Despite the bad press it got from the liberal media -- including 13 stories on Klein in the New York Times -- the book sold more than 250,000 copies. Klein says he wasn't sued by anyone and stands by everything he wrote. Now out in paperback, the book contains a new introduction that explains how conservative...

    Clicking through the radio dial on a drive through Virginia the other day, I had the occasion to listen to Bill O'Reilly posturing as a political independent who takes on the left and right. He said he had come under attack by a "right-wing" website because he wouldn't interview Ed Klein, the author of The Truth About Hillary. I presume he's referring to Accuracy in Media. We have done extensive reporting on the coverage of the Klein book and have found it strange that O'Reilly has joined with the liberal media in suppressing discussion of the serious charges in the...

    Little is more annoying and transparent than conservative pundits putting on an air of elitist dignity and taking the high-minded road, adopting the posture of their "objective" liberal counterparts—at the expense of someone or something that deserves better, in this case Ed Klein's book "The Truth About Hillary." This invaluable contribution to the national dialogue in prelude to the scariest presidential race in history has been used by conservatives from Joe Scarborough and Sean Hannity to Peggy Noonan and John Podhoretz as a point of fleeting, brown-nosey, cushy convergence with their ideological adversaries, whom they mimic in shunning the book....

    Longtime Hillary Clinton attack dog Sidney Blumenthal "led the charge" in the campaign to suppress the bestselling biography "The Truth About Hillary," author Ed Klein charged on Tuesday. "I've been totally 'blackouted' by the mainstream broadcast media, ABC, CBS and NBC," Klein said on a national radio show yesterday. "They all scheduled me on their shows and then, when Mrs. Clinton and her attack dogs got wind of it, they called up these TV networks and, in essence, threatened them that if they had me on, she would become less available to them." Asked if he "knew for sure that...

    TEN years ago, Kevin Costner's career took a turn for the worse when he made a hugely expensive film called ''Waterworld.'' Since then, the film has become synonymous with megalomania, hubris and all the other fancy words that journalists like to use when things fall apart and the center will not hold. But unlike his other movies ''Wyatt Earp'' and ''The Postman,'' which are really bad, ''Waterworld'' is simply a dumb, expensive dud, not an epic, studio-imploding disaster on the order of ''Heaven's Gate'' or ''Battlefield Earth.'' If you are in the market for a truly horrendous movie, one of...

    "Turning Hillary Clinton into a victim by publishing outrageous claims could backfire and strengthen her candidacy in 2008. This would be ironic given all the horrible things that Bill and Hillary have done over the years to the women who got in the way, including threats, smears, and intimidation. Hillary has shown that she'll stop at nothing to protect her political power—her real deeds are far more disturbing than the tawdry speculation Klein is spreading." One of the "outrageous claims" is said to be that "Chelsea Clinton was conceived when Bill raped Hillary." Other alleged "outrageous claims" are said to...
