The Clintons have been in full panic mode after a former Secret Service agent who served on their detail exposed some of their darkest secrets by writting a memoar.
According to The Daily Caller, in his book “Secrets of the Secret Service: The History and Uncertain Future of the U.S. Secret Service,”, Gary J. Byrne wrote that Bill Clinton’s allegedly obsessive out-of-marriage relationships put the lives of Secret Service officers in danger and wonders whether his “sordid personal affairs worth and officer’s life” as the president was often attempting to visit his “well-known and lesser-known mistresses”.
He claimed that during one of Bill’s sexual trysts, an agent almost lost his life in a motorcycle accident – Bill would order a small motorcade to follow his car around Washington from time to time. During one of these times, an officer identified as “Reverend” went through a red light and was struck by an approaching car, which left him with a serious head injury.
Allegedly, Bill and other drivers fled the scene, and the Washington police was left to deal further with the accident. Then, “Reverend” had to seek legal remediation so that he can secure any compensation for his injuries. Byrne says that this ordeal was a good test of the morale of the Secret Service staff – take a look:
“What had happened to Reverend spread like wildfire – any UD officer could have been in his place. Many would take a bullet for the president, but what was the risk for? How can Clinton’s sordid personal affairs be worth an officer’s life? That is certainly not the duty we had signed up for and spend so much time away from our families.”
According to Byrne, the Clinton presidency was a trying experience for the force from the beginning when their boss first eschewed Secret Service protection in favor of the good old boys from the Arkansas State Police who happened to be well acquainted with the president’s habits. This did not work and Bill wanted the Secret Service to do their jobs in a similar fashion to the state police — even though that is something they were never completely willing to do.
