The latest batch of documents from the State Department during Hillary Clinton's tenure as secretary of state shows that "there was a lot of paranoid stuff going on through these emails," best-selling conservative author Edward Klein told Newsmax TV
"She was in constant touch, for instance, with Sidney Blumenthal — who is so toxic that the White House refused to let her hire Sidney Blumenthal in the State Department," Klein told "Newsmax Prime" host J.D. Hayworth. "Instead, he got $10,000 a month to work for the Clinton Foundation.
"Blumenthal and she were constantly, according to these new emails that we've seen, were in touch with each other cooking up all kinds of conspiracy theories," Klein said. "This is just one of many kind of curious stuff that was going on in her State Department."

Klein is the author of the book, "Blood Feud: The Clintons vs. The Obamas."
He said he agreed with former Vice President Dick Cheney that Clinton was "sloppy and unprofessional, but it was illegal as well. She knew as a former first lady how important it was to be totally open and transparent.
"When she was first lady she made sure that the telephone system in the White House was changed so that her phone calls and Bill's phone calls did not go through the switchboard," Klein added. "This is a pattern of behavior that she's been following for many years."
Turning to the fierce war of words between Republican candidates Donald Trump and Jeb Bush, Klein told Hayworth that "what Jeb is doing is he's hitting Donald in the most sensitive part of his presentation, which is that Donald essentially has no policies.
"What he is is a personality. That's what he's selling.
"If you attack Donald Trump, he will come back at you 10 times stronger," Klein said. "That's why Donald is hitting Jeb as hard as he possibly can, because he feels that he's under assault from Jeb Bush."
