Former Secret Service agent Gary Byrnes filed a civil suit last week against Bill and Hillary Clinton, The Clinton Foundation, George Soros, John Podesta, as well as a slew of other individuals and organizations.
Byrnes is the author of “Crisis of Character,” a tell-all book about his days protecting President Clinton. The book hit number one on the New York Times and Amazon bestseller lists. Now, he is suing his former boss and others, alleging defamation, a conspiracy to commit racketeering, fraud, and even espionage.
The suit, which was filed in Federal Court, makes spectacular claims, including “kickbacks, money laundering, and extortion” in relation to the Uranium One deal that allowed twenty percent of U.S. uranium mines to be sold to a Russian entity.
Byrne, through his lawyer Mark R. Heilbrun, claims the group of defendants conspired to smear his name after the release of his book in 2016. He also alleges then-FBI Director James Comey and Attorney General Loretta Lynch were actually surrogates of the Clinton Giustra Enterprise Partnership, a non-profit foundation headed by former President Bill Clinton and Frank Giustra.
The lawsuit, which reads like a convoluted novel, covers a wide range of topics, including cocaine use by high level officials, collusion with Russian intelligence officers, and “sexual encounters President Clinton had with White House personnel and other paramours.” Byrne says he was placed on a “hit list” for his role in the 1998 impeachment of Clinton.
Judge Paul L. Friedman, a Clinton appointee, is scheduled to preside over the case.
