Gary Byrne served during the Clinton administration, and in the beginning of his book “Crisis of Character: A White House Secret Service Officer Discloses his Firsthand Experience with Hillary, Bill, and How They Operate,” he alleges that Hillary was “erratic, uncontrollable and occasionally violent.”

[dcquiz] “Hillary Clinton is now poised to become the Democratic nominee for president of the United States, but she simply lacks the integrity and temperament to serve in the office,” Byrne writes. (RELATED: Former White House Staffer Spills The Beans On The ‘Paranoid’ Clintons)

“From the bottom of my soul I know this to be true. And with Hillary’s latest rise, I realize that her own leadership style 000 volcanic, impulsive, enabled by sycophants, and disdainful of the rules set for everyone else —=000 hasn’t changed a bit.”

Byrne said he regularly witnessed her scream obscenities at her husband, Secret Service personnel and White House staffers.

He said he once showed up for work and found out that the Clintons had gotten into a physical altercation the night before. There was a vase that was “smashed to bits” and Bill had a “real, live, put-a-steak-on-it black eye.”

A spokesman for the Clinton camp disputed Byrne’s claims.

“Gary Byrne joins the ranks of Ed Klein and other ‘authors’ in this latest in a long line of books attempting to cash in on the election cycle with their nonsense,” Nick Merrill told Page Six. “It should be put in the fantasy section of the book store.” (RELATED: FBI Investigators: Hillary Humiliated Former WH Aide Vince Foster, Drove Him To Suicide)
