A new book from one of his former Secret Service officers claims that Bill Clinton often snuck away from his wife and out of the White House to cozy up with “well-known and lesser-known mistresses,” and that a Secret Service officer in the motorcade was nearly killed in a crash during one secret escape.
Gary J. Byrne, a former Uniform Division officer at the center of the Monica Lewinsky scandal, writes in his latest book, Secrets of the Secret Service: The History and Uncertain Future of the U.S. Secret Service, that Clinton demanded a tiny motorcade to secretly dash around Washington unnoticed, ordering that the cars try to obey laws like stopped lights.
And in one of those motorcades, an unnamed Uniform Division officer trying to keep up ran a red light and was T-boned in an intersection, suffering a traumatic brain injury.
Identified only as “Reverend,” Byrne wrote that the driver and two others were injured and that the rest of Clinton’s motorcade drove on, leaving D.C. Police to clean up the mess. At the time, the police did not know that Clinton was being chauffeured around Washington incognito.
