FBI Document Shocker: Hillary “Contemptuous” Towards Her Security Detail

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 8:30 am



I say “shocker” ironically, of course, because this is anything but shocking. Andrew Stiles at Heat Street dug up a nugget from yesterday’s FBI document dump, and it is not very flattering to Hillary Clinton:

Hillary Clinton was so abusive toward her diplomatic security staff that many quit or sought reassignment during her tenure as secretary of state, a former agent told FBI investigators, according to documents released Monday.

Clinton’s treatment of the diplomatic security agents assigned to protect her “was so contemptuous that many of them sought reassignment or employment elsewhere,” according to an FBI summary of its interview with the unnamed former security official.

The former agent described how protecting the secretary of state had long been viewed as “an honor and privilege reserved for senior agents,” according to the FBI summary, but that changed during Clinton tenure.

The agent told FBI investigators that by the end of Clinton’s time at the state department, the secretary’s security detail was “staffed largely with new agents because it was difficult to find senior agents willing to work for her.”

Here is a screenshot of the document:

The document is page 45 of the document dump, if you’d like to see it in context.

Hillary Clinton: arrogant and contemptuous? That comes as a surprise to . . . precisely nobody.

  1. yes yes she’s a filthy snotty pig

  2. Omigosh! Patterico has done a 180 and gone totally pro-Trump! Look for this “Vote for Trump” banner at the top of the site any minute now.

  3. She’s a real piece of work, isn’t she? Do we think it’s even remotely possible that the GOP candidate and his campaign might take a moment off from self-immolation to actually raise this as a legitimate character issue (and no, midnight Tweets do not count)?

  4. I’m sure he’ll mention it on the rally, but the entire party has to get involved, and they’ve been reasonably good imitations of basenghis,

  6. it’s still mostly samizdat, judicial watch and wikileaks provide 2/3 of actual information out there, the rest are self serving press releases,

  7. 21 Under three things the earth quakes,
    And under four, it cannot bear up:

    22 Under a slave when he becomes king,
    And a fool when he is satisfied with food,

    23 Under an unloved woman when she gets a husband,
    And a maidservant when she supplants her mistress.

  8. narciso:

    … the entire party has to get involved …

    If Trump is so weak that he can’t get anything done without complete and total support, 24/7, from every single Republican and conservative … how can he accomplish anything as President?

  11. It’s a bit surprising that they catch her when the falls.

  12. And again, I wish that the GOP voters had worried more about beating Clinton — which should have been easy, she carries more dead weight than Jacob Marley — but no, they had to have their tantrum instead.

  15. I hate to say it, but I’m pretty sure Los Angeles is a Mexican name. It’s all part of the Solar conspiracy to deny the Cubs the championship.

  17. They say the game is scheduled for 7:08 p.m. Chicago time, but I know they’ll play at 5:08 p.m. in Los Angeles. We won’t see it until it’s over. Don’t tell me that’s not rigged.

  20. I missed that movie first time around

    too bad we can’t get it re-released

    Maybe somebody could do a “Hitler finds out ‘Tess’ was about Hillary Clinton” and put it on YouTube, I bet it would go viral

  21. Somebody should really do it, and link to a story about the released FBI docs, as well as the movie.

  22. Just make sure you have a lawyer handy come tax season.
    Unfortunately, not a joke.

  23. Page 52 of this is interesting:

    Particularly the part about a group that reviewed the Benghazi related emails before they were turned over to the House Oversight Committee–that wasn’t the normal group. These “reviewers” used POC (points of contact) at the DOJ–instead of the FBI,and POCs at the WHC instead of the NSC, which the normal reviewers used. It’s being described as a “rookie mistake” but looks like an attempt at something else.

  24. Thus practice [of turning over security to the secret service at times] was unknown to the DS orior to CLINTON’s tenure

    Well, of course. No previous Secretary of state was entitled to Secret Service protection.

    But let’s figure out what’s going on here.

    My guess would be that she didn’t want the security people seeing things that she didn’t want non-loyal [to the Clintons, that is] people to see. She couldn’t prevent them from knowing she was carrying a cell phone, albeit a Blackberry, into secure zone, but there other things she could prevent them maybe from finding out, like who her guests were, and who she talked to.

    The Secret Service agents at Chappaqau were probably tamed, and were there because they wanted to be and Bill Clinton made things easy for them if they looked the other way if anything unusual happened.

    In the paper it was reported like the big thing is she din’t want to be stopped from visiting places that American reporters felt perfectly safe in going to.

    Leaving women to die in your Delta 88 used to count. Now it’s old, boring news.

  26. why are we surprised from aldrich, to patterson to byrne, the message has been quite clear about both borgia’s contempt for military and security personnel, only hacks like wesley clark and joe sestak need apply,
