Sorry I wasted my time on this book but I generally like to read books that are written from a variety of perspectives. The full title (Crisis of Character: A White House Secret Service Officer Discloses His Firsthand Experience with Hillary, Bill, and How They Operate) is extremely misleading because only a small portion of this book is about the Clintons. It is really a book about his life, his lengthy career, his over-size ego, and his high opinion of his OWN character. It is obvious that the purpose for writing the book was to limit the possibility that Clinton would become President. It would be interesting to know who encouraged him to write it and how much money he received. There are few hard facts about the Clintons but many undocumented rumors, assumptions, etc. which seem to become "facts" when referred to a second or third time. I see this book as an anti-Clinton book and not a pro-Trump or pro-any other-Republican-candidate book. It is almost humorous to hear Clinton described as a habitual liar, of poor temperament, as someone who has a quick temper, responds poorly to criticism, and is "crass", etc. ... when you stop to consider how well those words actually describe the man who won the Electoral College vote and is about to be sworn in as our President!

I would not pay much mind to this audio/book, more important to focus on the fact that the Clintons constituted that Great Leap Forward for a global banking cartel: Clinton's directive to the SEC in 1993, to drop the mandatory reporting of the majority shareholders in investment firms, thus hiding ownership ||| Clinton's promoting and signing the 1994 legislation, Riegle-Neal Interstate Banking and Branching Efficiency Act - - allowing for full interstate banking ||| Clinton's signing of the REIT Modernization Act, which set the stage for the next two pieces |||his signing the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Financial Services Modernization Act, killing Glass-Steagall ||| his signing of the Commodity Futures Modernization Act, destroying oversight over credit derivatives, the ultimate financial fraud tool ||| and his signing of the Telecommunications Act of 1996, allowing for the consolidation of the corporate media, and for the reconstitution of AT&T, more powerful than ever!
And Clinton signed NAFTA, allowing for the foreign ownership of Mexican banks.
While Reagan created the Office of Privatization under OMB, it was Clinton who truly went hog wild in privatizing the government functions and agencies!
So, more Clinton anyone . . . . .
