WATCH: When Ed Klein, Author Of Clinton And Obama Smear Books, Met Joe Conason And Al Franken

The inventive and indefatigable Edward Klein, author of many works of purported non-fiction, is back in bookstores with Blood Feud: The Clintons vs. the Obamas.

In his latest work, the former Newsweek journalist recounts supposedly verbatim conversations between Bill and Hillary Clinton about Benghazi, and between Bill Clinton and his “friends” reviling President Obama. He also quotes, at length, a bitter argument over dinner in the White House between the former president and the current president. And he claims to prove that Hillary Clinton is concealing secrets about her own severe ill health and that she considered resigning in protest against the Benghazi “coverup.”

But Klein’s incredible scoops, faithfully promoted by various Murdoch outlets, deserve to be considered in light of his past record – which indicates a high likelihood of fraud. In 2005, he published The Truth About Hillary, an error-filled volume that claimed Chelsea Clinton was conceived when Bill Clinton “raped” Hillary, who Klein says is actually a secret lesbian. That book was bad enough to offend Sean Hannity.

For a sense of Klein’s commitment to accuracy and fairness, The National Memo is pleased to present a three-part interview with Klein by Al Franken and Joe Conason on Air America Radio’s Al Franken Show when The Truth About Hillary was published (hat tip to Newshounds for the transcript), which was also simulcast on TV’s Sundance Channel.

Merrick Garland

Attorney General Merrick Garland

Attorney General Merrick Garland did not mince words on Thursday, calling Donald Trump’s claims of President Joe Biden authorizing the use of “deadly force” during a search for classified materials at his Mar-a-Lago resort in August 2022 “false” and “extremely dangerous.”
