Gary Byrne, of Springfield, Pa., worked as a uniform Secret Service office in the Clinton White House. His book Crisis of Character describes his experience with the Clinton machine.
When the book became a best seller, David Brock and his Democrat-establishment smear group Media Matters of America attacked. They said, among other things, he was “not in close proximity to President William Jefferson Clinton.”
Bryne’s lawyers have notified Brock and Media Matters of America to keep all records associated with Bryne including “any communication(s) between David Brock and The Honorable Hillary Rodham Clinton.”
They have also demanded that Brock immediately and publicly retract “any statement or inference” that Bryne had not been fully truthful.
The lawyers note they may call George Stephanopoulos, John Podesta, Leon Panetta, Bruce Lindsey, Hillary Rodham Clinton and Bill Clinton as witnesses.
Byrne has threatened similar legal action against Jan Gilhooly, president of the Association of Former Agents of the United States Secret Service.
