Retired Secret Service officer Gary Byrne’s explosive tell-all on Hillary Rodham Clinton and former President Bill Clinton from his days inside the White House has topped the New York Times bestseller list for the end of June, despite a Clinton-created media blackout.
“I am very grateful to the tens of thousands of Americans who have bought my book and listened to my message,” Byrne said in a statement obtained exclusively by Breitbart News ahead of its public release. “But I would welcome the opportunity to reach a larger audience. Today I urge the mainstream media networks who so far have declined to give a voice to my message and the serious allegations I have raised to reconsider their positions, both in the interest of fairness and out of a sense of obligation to the American public.”
Byrne’s tell-all book, Crisis of Character, has also been the number one nonfiction book on Amazon for about a month as well. In addition, sources say, Byrne’s book was the bestselling nonfiction book at Barnes and Noble last week. In it, Byrne—who stood guard outside Bill Clinton’s oval office for three years in the 1990s—exposes, among other things, never-before-reported details on how Hillary Clinton, then the First Lady, regularly lost control of herself engaging in rage fits laden with expletives she shouted at Secret Service officers.
Because of the fact that Byrne—despite a glowing history ringing with praise from even Bill Clinton’s appointees and his senior staff—exposes so much about the Clintons, the mainstream media has blacked him out. But coverage from new media like The Drudge Report and Breitbart News among others has skyrocketed Byrne’s book to the top of sales across America. Donald Trump, the presumptive 2016 GOP presidential nominee, has also hyped the book as proof that Hillary Clinton—unlike her husband—does not have the temperament to be president of the United States.
What’s worse is despite the intense popularity and interest from Americans—as evidenced by the fact the book is selling at the top of almost all charts amid an intense election year—the entire mainstream media and all the major networks have barred their reporters and anchors from covering the book because Hillary Clinton doesn’t like what Gary Byrne exposes.
The Drudge Report, in a recent rare and high profile exclusive, reported that “Hillary’s campaign has won assurances that he will not be invited to spread ‘lies’ on any of the nation’s broadcast networks.”
One Hillary Clinton campaign official, according to The Drudge Report exclusive, even warned a television network producer that Byrne’s book is “trash for cash.”
Byrne’s agents, in the press release announcing The New York Times number one bestseller position, despite the media blackout, which was provided to Breitbart News ahead of its public release, detailed how the book reached the top of the prestigious list for the week of June 27.
“In CRISIS OF CHARACTER, Byrne, an Air Force veteran with a nearly 30-year federal law enforcement career, gives a front-row, eyewitness account of the scandal and turmoil that characterized the first Clinton White House, embroiled the nation in a historic impeachment crisis, and which he believes will re-emerge if the Clintons return to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue,” the release reads. “Byrne’s book takes direct aim at the ‘dangerous’ temperament of presumptive Democratic Party nominee Hillary Clinton.”
The release also notes that every mainstream media outlet in America has ignored or “shunned” the book.
“The author has bemoaned that the book, despite its direct relevance to the 2016 campaign, has been shunned by every mainstream media outlet,” the release reads. “News outlets across the board including ABC, CBS, NBC and CNN have so far declined to welcome the author onto their programs for a chance to share his views.”
