RPT: Valerie Jarrett Leaked Story on Hillary Clinton's Emails
Ed Klein reported this weekend in the New York Post that President Barack Obama’s senior adviser Valerie Jarrett leaked details of Hillary Clinton’s private email use to the press.
Klein alleged that Jarrett leaked the story using people outside of the administration so that the blame couldn’t be pointed at the White House.
Read some of the New York Post report below:
Members of Bill Clinton’s camp say the former president suspects the White House is the source of the leak and is furious.
“My contacts and friends in newspapers and TV tell me that they’ve been contacted by the White House and offered all kinds of negative stories about us,” one of Bill’s friends quotes him as saying. “The Obamas are behind the email 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.”
Then, according to this source, Bill added: “The Obamas are out to get us any way they can.”
The sabotage is part of an ongoing feud between the two Democrat powerhouses.
Fox News’ James Rosen asked White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest about the report, which Earnest dismissed as “utter baloney.”
“When you draw blood as I did, you expect one of these responses,” Klein told Hannity. “I’ve been called worse than baloney.”
Klein told Sean Hannity tonight that he normally has two sources, but in this story, he used three – a source at the White House, a source at the State Department, and someone inside the Clinton camp. He said that none of the sources know each other.
Democratic pollster Doug Schoen also weighed in on Klein’s report tonight.
“I think it’s entirely plausible,” he said. “I mean one thing that’s been made entirely clear is that the Obama team, up to and including the president, would like anybody other than Hillary to be president.”
