Best-selling author Ed Klein is out with a new book that levels a blockbuster charge against Barack Obama: The then-presidential candidate tried to bribe the Rev. Jeremiah Wright to buy his silence during Obama’s 2008 campaign.
Discussing his book “The Amateur: Barack Obama in the White House” during a Wednesday appearance on Sean Hannity’s Fox News show, Klein said the bribery allegation came during a 2011 interview with the controversial Wright that Klein conducted and videotaped.
In that interview Wright “was throwing Barack Obama down the stairs,” Hannity observed. “I am going to play this first tape here, where basically he is offered money through a third party to basically shut up and not speak until the November election.”
On the tape, Wright says: “He offered me money not to preach at all between the explosion of the media in the first week in March and [the] November election.”
Hannity said: “In other words, is it an offer for an in-kind donation to buy the silence of somebody that could hurt his campaign? . . . And why is he saying it now? Why is he suggesting that they tried to buy his silence in 2008?”
Klein: “Because he feels that he has been turned by the Obama campaign into a pariah.”
In another portion of the taped interview, Wright states that Obama himself asked the pastor not to do any more public speaking until the election.
Klein told Hannity, as he writes in his book, that Obama asked for a private meeting with Wright about a week after Obama’s speech on race in Philadelphia in March 2008. At that meeting, Klein recalls, Obama says “the trouble with you, Reverend, is that you have to tell the truth. And the Reverend Wright says to him, 'That’s not bad trouble to have, Mr. Obama.'”
