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, 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.Yeah, and I'm sure Bill has that purple face of anger and ready to wag that finger that he's been famous for, like to this San Francisco TV reporter.
“The Obamas are behind the e-mail story, and they’re spreading rumors that I’ve been with women, that Hillary promoted people at the State Department who’d done favors for our foundation, that John Kerry had to clean up diplomatic messes Hillary left behind.”
...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.
And she vowed payback.
...After the Democrats took a shellacking in the midterms, the White House scheduled a meeting with Hillary Clinton. When she showed up in the Oval Office, she was greeted by three people — the president, Jarrett and Michelle Obama.
With his wife and Jarrett looking on, Obama made it clear that he intended to stay neutral in the presidential primary process — a clear signal that he wouldn’t mind if someone challenged Hillary for the nomination.
“Obama and Valerie Jarrett will go to any lengths to prevent Hillary from becoming president,” a source close to the White House told me. “They believe that Hillary, like her husband, is left of center, not a true-blue liberal.”
If she gets into the White House, they believe she will compromise with the Republicans in Congress and undo Obama’s legacy.
“With Obama’s approval,” this source continued, “Valerie has been holding secret meetings with Martin O’Malley [the former Democratic governor of Maryland] and [Massachusetts Sen.] Elizabeth Warren. She’s promised O’Malley and Warren the full support of the White House if they will challenge Hillary for the presidential nomination.”That's pretty telling. O'Malley has a legacy (like Obama) of ruining the place he was entrusted to govern, the state of Maryland, with the most radical anti-gun laws and schemes like a "rain tax," after inheirting a budget surplus from Gov. Bob Erlich, that Republicans were able to defeat O'Malley's handpicked successor this past November. Like Obama, Elizabeth "Fauxahontas" Warren has risen to the US Senate and is now seen as a Presidential contender, just on star power alone.
Some of Edward Klein's allegations have been sketchy, but this one makes too much sense. It is telling because when the Hillary e-mail story broke, Mark Levin was the first out nationally to say that he suspected this was "an inside job."
The question is, if Hillary is torpedoed and taken out (I've long suspected she won't run in 2016), will she and Bill put party loyalty aside and secretly torpedo whomever Jarrett and Obama anoint as nominee?
