About the book

Daniel Halper provides a meticulously researched account of the calculations, secret deals, and backstabbing that led to the Clintons’ return to political prominence, and to Hillary’s position as 2016 frontrunner.

The Bill and Hillary Clinton who left the White House in January 2001 almost seem like two different people from the ones the country now reveres. Back then they were a disgraced couple, weighed down by a decade of scandal, controversial pardons of financial supporters, and the pedestrian pilfering of furniture from the White House.

A dozen years later, as they prepare for a second White House run, the Clintons are in a completely different orbit. Not only have they gone from virtually penniless to multi-millionaires, they are arguably the two most popular politicians in America-respected and feared by Republicans and Democrats alike. Even their daughter Chelsea, raised in the White House as her father was impeached, is considering a go at politics. The Clintons will be around for some time to come.

Investigative reporter Daniel Halper of the conservative Weekly Standard uses a wealth of research and detailed interviews with friends, allies, and enemies of the Clintons to reveal the strategy they used and the deals they made to turn around their political fortunes-deals with their political allies, their political enemies, and even each other.

The Clintons reside at the peak of the American power elite. Daniel Halper explains, in riveting detail, how they got there and how they stay there. But Halper hasn't just produced a must-read about Clinton, Inc. He's also opened an important--and disturbing--window into the current state of American politics and society.

It's hard to imagine there's much more to learn about the Clintons, who are perhaps the most widely covered family in the world. But in Clinton, Inc., Daniel Halper provides readers with fresh and compelling reporting on this American power couple -- who they are, what they've done, and, perhaps most important, what comes next.

If you think you know all there is to know about the Clintons, Daniel Halper proves you wrong. Read this highly informative, appropriately excoriating book about the once and perhaps-future First Couple--and consider yourself warned.

Daniel Halper is a such a good reporter, I've tried to hire him three times. Few people in Washington have better sources or a sharper eye for detail. Halper gets the story every time and, trust me, there's a story here.

Halper’s study is juicy and gossipy, yet scrupulously researched, drawing on numerous on-the-record conversations (as well as many not-for-attribution interviews) with prominent Democrats and Clinton insiders, past and present.
