Former Secret Service Officer Gary Byrne: Hillary Clinton Is ‘the Ultimate Jekyll and Hyde’

Former Secret Service officer Gary Byrne told Sirius XM host Stephen K. Bannon on Tuesday’s Breitbart News Daily that he wrote his controversial new book Crisis of Character, about his time working in Bill Clinton’s West Wing, in part because he thought it was important to give American voters a clear look at Hillary Clinton’s character before the 2016 presidential election.

“I realize that people in the Secret Service, uniformed division officers like myself, aren’t supposed to talk about these things. But somewhere across the threshold, it’s important for the people to know what the truth is. And Mrs. Clinton is not a leader,” he declared. “My experiences in that White House, they went from comical to almost fear, because of the way she behaved. There’s no way she’s going to function as Commander-in-Chief. She couldn’t function as the First Lady, normally. Anybody that has that dangerous behavior where she irrationally yells at people over the simplest things — she’s not a nice person. She’s not a leader. At best, she’s a dictator, and she’s a poor one.”

Byrne is well aware that he has broken the “code of silence” assumed to exist between the Secret Service and their protectees. He said it was an action he did not take lightly.

“What I saw in the Nineties, during President Clinton’s administration, what I saw of his wife — if the American public saw it, there’s no way that she would even have been chosen as the Secretary of State, and she never would have ran the first time. It’s time that people find out the truth,” he said.

“I’m not talking about little things,” Byrne stressed. “I’m talking about flaws in character. This is an important thing. People don’t understand what being the President of the United States is. I’m telling you, even President George Herbert Walker Bush, who was Vice-President for eight years, had no idea what it was, when he stepped into Ronald Reagan’s shoes. And even though Bill Clinton was President, and she was pseudo-president or chief of staff, I’m telling you, the things that go on in a day, in a four hour period in the morning, for the President of the United States, is overwhelming. And if you don’t have the type of character where you can deal with these things, and have the mentality where you can fix the problem, and not get wrapped around the axle with the anger of what happened, you’re not a leader. And that’s what I saw from her.”

“Clearly, I feel strong enough about what I saw that it is time to come forward,” he said. “If I don’t say something, none of these other guys will.”

When Bannon mentioned an incident recounted in the book, where Hillary Clinton put her arm around Byrne and said he was her “favorite guy,” Byrne said he knew it wasn’t true when she said it.

“She doesn’t see anybody as her ‘favorite guy,’” he said. The incident in question involved a women’s group from Arkansas taking a tour of the White House. Hillary Clinton wanted them to wait in the Oval Office until she could meet with them, but Byrne said that was a violation of security protocol. Clinton brushed off his attempt to show her the relevant rules in the “Green Monster” handbook, berated him for not being “user friendly,” and declared the uniformed division of the Secret Service was “a bunch of a-holes.”

Under this pressure, Byrne devised a compromise where Clinton’s guests could safely wait in the Roosevelt Room. After he gave them the White House tour, Hillary Clinton reappeared for what he thought would be another dressing-down, but instead she praising him as “one of our favorite people here at the White House” and a “great tour officer” to the visitors.

“She can just turn it on, and turn it off,” Byrne said. “She’s like the ultimate Jekyll and Hyde. She has no respect for us. My impression of the Clintons, especially Mrs. Clinton, is that she can’t stand law enforcement, and especially she can’t stand the military.”
