Ed Klein: Bill Clinton Thinks White House Sparked Email Scandal

Clinton insider claims White House has prompted six investigations into Clinton to thwart 2016 run

Ed Klein, author of Blood Feud: The Clintons vs. The Obamas and self-styled Clinton insider, said Wednesday that he has learned from reliable sources that the White House is the one responsible for sparking the Hillary Clinton email scandal—and Bill Clinton is convinced of it, too. 

On Fox & Friends Wednesday, Klein said that, according to insider sources, the White House is leaking damning information about Hillary to the media in an attempt to thwart her 2016 hopes because Obama and Valerie Jarrett fear the "too centrist" Hillary will undermine Obama's legacy by cooperating with Republicans. 

The same sources told Klein that the White House has been working against Hillary for some time, their efforts leading to six investigations into Clinton. Klein claimed his sources have witnessed “tons of documents being wheeled through the corridors from Clinton’s old offices," in an attempt to find "problems on her expense account, on her dealings with foreign leaders." The reason: Jarrett and Obama fear Hillary will not "carry out the legacy of Barack Obama":

KLEIN: All of this, I’m told, is prompted by Valerie Jarrett, and the president who do not want to see Hillary Clinton President of the United States…they feel the Clintons are very centrist as far as the Democratic Party is concerned, that if Hillary becomes president, she won’t carry out the legacy of Barack Obama, which is much further to the left than the Clintons, that she’ll cooperate with the Republicans the way Bill Clinton did when he was in office, and dilute whatever Obama was able to accomplish.

The theory, Klein said, is not just something he believes, "Bill Clinton thinks this as well":

KLEIN: He has said, according to my sources, that the White House is leaking to their friendly — their friends in the mainstream media stories about the Clintons, not only about Hillary, but about him and about what she did while she was in the State Department. And it’s my understanding that — and this is from sources within the White House, that the Clintons know that Hillary is under not one, but six different investigations prompted by the White House.

Klein also underscored that Obama lied when he said he wasn't aware that Hillary had exclusively used a private email account during her tenure as Secretary of State. "He got a lot of emails from Hillary Clinton, all of which obviously came from her personal account," said Klein.
