Numerous reports have surfaced over the years which indicate Hillary Clinton is despised by the security community, but new information from an FBI investigation shows that things were so bad during her stint at the State Department, they had trouble finding agents who would even work with her.
It’s not a sign that bodes well for a woman who wishes to be commander-in-chief.
Documents released by the FBI show a former agent claiming Clinton was “so contemptuous” towards the people protecting her life that “many of them sought reassignment or employment elsewhere.”
Turnover was high for the security agents “because it was difficult to find senior agents willing to work for her.”
Via the Daily Caller:
During her interview, the agent said Clinton treated agents rudely and with contempt, and was so unpleasant that senior agents typically avoided being on her security detail.
“[Redacted] explained that CLINTON’s treatment of DS agents on her protective detail was so contemptuous that many of them sought reassignment or employment elsewhere,” the interview summary says. “Prior to CLINTON’s tenure, being an agent on the Secretary of State’s protective detail was seen as an honor and privilege reserved for senior agents. However, by the end of CLINTON’s tenure, it was staffed largely with new agents because it was difficult to find senior agents willing to work for her.”
The agent added that she had spoken to several Secret Service agents who reported similar poor treatment from Clinton.
Readers of The Political Insider will likely nod their heads in agreement. It was just this past summer that a military K9 expert posted a viral story in which he was assigned to guard the former Secretary of State in Turkey with his dog, Suli.
Having worked detail for former President Bush and President Obama, both of whom were friendly, Eric Bonner relayed a story about his first interaction with Hillary.
“Get that f***ing dog away from me,” she said.
Then she turns to her Security Detail and berates them up and down about why that animal was in her quarters. For the next 20 minutes while I sit there waiting to be released she lays into her detail, slamming the door in their faces when she’s done. The Detail lead walks over apologizes and releases me. I apologize to him for getting him in trouble. His words “Happens every day, Brother”
Hard to imagine why anybody would want to work with her.
