Many Americans will not explore the details of the Whitewater scandal, the distress of Vince Foster, multiple allegations against Bill Clinton of coerced carnal activity, events in Syria, the death of the U.S. Ambassador and other Americans in Benghazi followed by an alleged cover-up, allegations of failure to properly secure Secretary Clinton’s email server thus exposing sensitive information related to national security, the sordid financial details of the Clinton Foundation, and more. But most Americans will grasp the following on an emotional level.
Hillary Clinton reportedly battered a sitting President of the United States, the elected representative of the American people. She gave him a black eye. I would not have believed it, except this information comes from author Gary J Byrne, a man who served on their Secret Service detail.
That’s the definition of a dysfunctional relationship not to mention the troubling reality of striking a sitting president.
But is it a crisis of character?
Women of good character do not hit men, except to defend themselves, because men are not in a position to hit first, or hit back, except in the gravest extreme. Even then, a man might not be believed; he’s viewed as a lethal weapon. For this reason, in a court of law, a woman who uses lethal force to defend herself usually wins. It is a traditional common sense code of mutual chivalry, not just because it makes for a better society, but because of usual differences in physical strength and the basic idea of honor and fairness.
Adults, no matter the emotional turmoil, learn self-control and multiple methods of coping that do not include proactive violence, much less proactive violence against the President of the United States.
So yes, Hillary Clinton has a crisis of character.
Note: This information is based on the “Look inside this book” feature on Amazon for Gary Byrne’s upcoming book about his service in the Clinton White House, Crisis of Character: A White House Secret Service Officer Discloses His Firsthand Experience with Hillary, Bill, and How they Operate. The preview is enough to make the case for the book’s title. I look forward to reading the entire book as soon as it is released.

Many books have been written about the chaos inside the Clinton White House.
The latest insight is by a member of the Secret Service who protected the Clintons. And his new book is making waves in the presidential race.
As a uniformed officer in the Secret Service, Gary Byrne stood guard outside the Oval Office while the Clintons served inside.
Gary Byrne talks about what he witnessed about the Clintons on The 700 Club, Friday.
It was his dream job, but Byrne witnessed things that led him to speak out in his new book, Crisis of Character: A White House Secret Service Officer Discloses His Firsthand Experience with Hillary, Bill, and How They Operate.
He details how Hillary Clinton belittled Secret Service officers on her detail, even throwing a Bible at one agent and hitting him on the head.
In front of cameras, the former First Lady was warm and friendly, he said. But outside the public eye he says she was cold, emotional and even dangerous.
Byrne also reveals he tried to keep Monica Lewinsky away from President Clinton. He said he concealed other affairs the president had inside the White House,
including one with Eleanor Mondale, daughter of former Vice President Walter Mondale.
Before she died in 2011 from brain cancer, Mondale suggested she and the president were just friends.
Clinton allies are also fighting back, saying Byrne didn’t have the access to know the details that he claims in his book.
But as Hillary Clinton now seeks the White House, Byrne writes that from the bottom of his soul he knows she lacks the integrity and temperament to serve as president.

However, I would like to share a bit related to the chapter entitled “The Vase.” One morning in 1995, the White House staff was treated to a reverberating verbal battle between the Clintons. The row then evolved into something more physical. After a resounding crash, the Secret Service agents were obliged to investigate the source of the sound.
Byrne discovered the shattered remains of a historic vase packed away in the curator’s office. He also noted that Bill Clinton came in the next day with a big black eye not well hidden by makeup. When Byrne commented about Clinton’s bruise to the president’s personal secretary Bettie Curie, she dismissed it as a coffee allergy.
So, the Secret Service officers had to figure out what to do when the President’s wife posed a physical threat to the President.
Here are three mental exercises I would propose that Legal Insurrection readers put to those they know who are voting for Hillary Clinton:
• How would you suggest Secret Service officers handle a President who is a physical threat to those around her?
• If this is how Clinton treats her husband, how will she treat the rest of us? If this is the regard she shows the historic treasures of our nation as First Lady, why should we trust her as President?
• How would the mainstream media be covering this episode, if the story involved Donald Trump throwing a vase and striking Melania?
