EX-SECRET SERVICE AGENT: CLINTON WHITE HOUSE TELL ALL

In a shocking breach of national security a former SECRET SERVICE agent spills his guts in a book about the CLINTON presidency.

A former U.S. Secret Service agent Dan Emmett has self-published a book “Whithin Arm’s Length” reputedly savaging the Clinton White House staff as arrogant and rude.  He also claims former first lady Hillary Clinton was aloof and Emmett charges that President  Bill Clinton endangered not only himself  but agents for a “totally pointless photo op” on the South Korea-North Korea border.

Writing in the book, the rogue agent revealed that Clinton’s young staff had “fundamental traits of rudeness and arrogance” that teetered on being dangerous.

 “Most of these youngsters were from wealthy families, and many viewed Secret Services agents as the hired help,” he writes.

In the book, he writes that an unnamed Clinton staffer challenged a KGB agent during a 1993 presidential visit to Russia “as if he were dealing with a Wackenhut security officer in Toledo.”

Emmett also describes Hillary Clinton as aloof -- who didn’t say “thank you” to agents while the president and former first daughter Chelsea typically did.

“She was not as out-going or cordial,” he told The Washington Examiner.

Emmett, who also worked the White House Secret Service detail during both the George H.W. Bush and Clinton administration claims he’s not dishing any state secrets, although the Secret Service are urged not to write about the people they protect.

Emmett says he claimed he told the agency about the book.  The Secret Service said they didn’t get a copy of the memoir.

“We do stress to all our employees the importance of not sharing anecdotes about the personal, private moments of the protectees,” Secret Service spokesman Ed Donovan said. “It causes concern because we don’t want to erode the trust that we have with our protectees.”
