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.

'Tonight the FBI officially became the enemy of the people!!!' Rep. Ronny Jackson of Texas tweeted.

House and Senate Republicans are irate over the raid by FBI agents on Monday at former President Donald Trump's Florida estate and have vowed to defund the agency and seek retribution against it should the GOP regain control of Congress in November.

The promise to take funding from the Federal Bureau of Investigation and launch probes into the agency's search of Trump's Mar-a-Lago residence came in a flood of tweets after Trump himself confirmed that federal law enforcement officers had carried out the raid. Media reports said the FBI was searching for possible boxes of classified materials that Trump might have improperly removed from the White House when he left office.

America’s right-wing extremists have been hankering for a civil war for a long time now, and in particular have been eager to start using their guns in defense of Donald Trump ever since he came onto the political scene. They tried to start a civil war on Trump’s behalf after he lost on January 6, 2021.

So to no one’s great surprise, they’re currently flooding social media and right-wing media bandwidth with vows to begin a civil war on Trump’s behalf after the FBI executed a search warrant at the ex-president’s Florida waterfront estate, Mar-a-Lago, and seized evidence in a yet-unspecified investigation. The rhetoric is mostly a mixture of over-the-top hysteria and dark threats, and it’s being wielded by everyone from congressional Republicans to anonymous militiamen.
