Obama Administration Looking to Stop Hillary’s WH Bid.
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 — she will govern from the left of center and not be a true liberal,” Klein said, “and will, therefore, compromise with Republicans like Bill did when he was in office, and will undo a lot of the Obama legacy.
“They are determined to stop her — and, of course, it’s not going to be easy,” he said.Klein, who worked as the editor of The New York Times Magazine from 1977 to 1987 and as an editor for Newsweek, has written several books critical of Bill and Hillary Clinton and President Barack ObamaHis most recent book, “Blood Feud,” was released last year and detailed the longstanding rift between the Obamas and the Clintons. It topped No. 1 on the Times’ best-seller list.
He told Kudlow that Jarrett, who is a close Obama family friend, began six investigations of Clinton’s years at the State Department — and that his reporting had discovered that the White House was behind the leak of Clinton’s use of emails to The Times, though he is not sure of Jarrett’s role in the leak.
The inquiries surrounded “the use of her expense account,” Klein said, “the disbursement of funds, her contact with foreign leaders, her possible collusion with the Clinton Foundation — and of course, first and foremost — her use of emails.”
