Rush Limbaugh claimed that "nobody ever denies" Ed Klein's credibility, despite having previously called the discredited journalist's sources into question himself.
Ed Klein dubiously suggested that White House adviser Valerie Jarrett deliberately leaked the Hillary Clinton email story to the media to "sabotage" the possible presidential ambitions of Obama's former secretary of state -- citing anonymous "members of Bill Clinton's camp" and a nameless "source close to the White House" in a March 16 column for the New York Post.
The same day, Rush Limbaugh highlighted Klein's accusation that Jarrett had leaked the story on Clinton's emails, and asserted Klein's credibility claiming that the author has penned many works on Clinton but that "nobody ever denies his stuff":
But in June 2014 when Klein's book Blood Feud was released, Limbaugh questioned the credibility of Klein's unsourced quotes. Remarking that "some of the quotes strike me as odd, in the sense that I don't know people who speak this way," Limbaugh dismissed the sources as "grade school chatter."
