Trump Escalates Clinton Attack, Calls Vince Foster Suicide "Very Fishy"

Tyler Durden's picture

Just hours after Donald Trump released a clip in which the presumptive Republican presidential candidate hinted at Bill Clinton's sexual transgressions which featured audio of two women - Kathleen Willey and Juanita Broaddrick - who have made rape accusations against Bill Clinton, Trump escalated his attack on Hillary and Bill Clinton in an interview with WaPo in which Trump called the circumstances of Vincent Foster’s death "very fishy."

"He had intimate knowledge of what was going on," Trump said of Foster’s relationship with the Clintons. "He knew everything that was going on and then all of a sudden he committed suicide."

As a reminder, Vince Foster, a longtime friend of the Clintons, was deputy White House counsel in the first few months of Clinton’s presidency.  He was found dead from a gunshot wound to the mouth in July 1993. The three official investigations into Foster’s death concluded he committed suicide as he suffered from depression, however unproven theories have constantly swirled that the Clintons were involved in Foster’s death.

 

The Washington Post was not pleased, saying that "Trump is reviving some of the ugliest political chapters of the 1990s with escalating personal attacks on Bill Clinton’s character, part of a concerted effort to smother Hillary Clinton’s campaign message with the weight of decades of controversy."

The WaPo does correctly note that in many ways the race already appears to be "teed up as a referendum on the two candidates’ pasts - both of whom carry enough baggage to fill many books - rather than their visions for the country’s future."

"Clinton has increasingly directed fire at Trump’s long history of derogatory statements about women, his bankruptcies and other controversies to argue he is unfit for office."

 

Trump, meanwhile, has sought to brand the former secretary of state as “Crooked Hillary,” pointing to such issues as the Whitewater real estate controversy in the 1990s and foreign donations to her family’s philanthropic organization over the past decade. Trump also regularly accuses the Clintons of hypocrisy on women’s issues and argues that Hillary Clinton has been an “enabler” of her husband’s actions and attempting to discredit the women in question.

That is how the topic of Vince Foster emerged: according to the WaPo, "Trump said another topic of potential concern is the suicide of former White House aide Vincent Foster, which remains the focus of intense and far-fetched conspiracy theories on the Internet."

Conspiracy theory or not, the issue of Foster's death may just hit a live nerve in the Clinton campaign, something that is the ultimate goal of Trump. 

One issue on Trump’s radar is the 1993 death of Foster, which has been ruled a suicide by law enforcement officials and a subsequent federal investigation. But some voices on the far right have long argued that the Clintons may have been involved in a conspiracy that led to Foster’s death.

 

He called theories of possible foul play “very serious” and the circumstances of Foster’s death “very fishy.”

 

"He had intimate knowledge of what was going on,” Trump said, speaking of Foster’s relationship with the Clintons at the time. "He knew everything that was going on, and then all of a sudden he committed suicide."

 

He added, "I don’t bring [Foster’s death] up because I don’t know enough to really discuss it. I will say there are people who continue to bring it up because they think it was absolutely a murder. I don’t do that because I don’t think it’s fair."

He has now, and we can only expect the topic of Clinton's alleged rape as well as the Clintons' involvement in Vince Foster' death to become an increasingly prevalent, if circuitous, theme of future Trump attack campaigns, even if as he says he "doesn't bring it up", because the purpose is simple: to throw Hillary and her campaign off balance.

Finally, since as the WaPo puts it, the presidential race is a "referendum on the candidates' past", the one candidate who comes up with the most shocking - and thus most memorable, remarkable and entertaining - skeletons in the closet will likely win. For now Trump appears to be holding the advantage, especially since nothing Hillary has come up with has managed to penetrate Teflon Trump's thick skin so far.

David Duke as VP. Reduces the chance of the jews assassinating President Trump.

Or increases the chances of doing both at the same time.

Ron is too old and wouldn't take it on principle. Rand has demonstrated a willingness to try to work within the GOP instead of trying to burn it down like Ron did. Where Rand and Ron differ I tend to favor Ron, but really, either one would not only be a fine VEEP but would make Trump essentially bulletproof.

Ima anal sphincter's picture

You've got to kidding.

Do you actually think that POS Rand hasn't already sold out.

YOU DO NOT REACH THAT LEVEL OF POWER BY BEING A GOOD BOY "FOR" THE PEOPLE.

Yes, that's caps and bold because I can't scream at you.

Kentuckians are not people, my friend. 

New Yorkers, Californians, Miamians, and all the other Rothschild/Vatican foot-soldiers are people, my friend.

Uh, okay. Fact is, Ron Paul was intent upon sweeping the established order right the fuck out the door.

I, for one, CHEERED HIM ON IN WANTING TO DO SO.

I said months ago that Hillarnazi doesn't want to run against Trump because NOTHING IS OFF LIMITS with Trump, and this bitch has more skeletons in her closet than a gravekeeper.  Wait until he goes after her sell plutonium to the Soviets, her Chinese ties, the email scandals, Benghazi, her lesbian past, Chelsea isn't Bill's daughter, etc.   These are going to be some seriously bad times for Hillarnazi.

Trump and Hillary are both horrible representatives of America. Love my country, but sure dislike the ugly Americans representing the 99% of decent folks to the rest of the world. We're better than that, but few good people willingly sell their souls just to work in D.C.

THIS is blowback for pushing political-correctness and false-flag-memes down the throats of decent, law-abiding Americans. THE TRIBE pulls-off the worst shit known to humanity (see Jeffrey Epstein best friend of Bill). Polite WASPs are LONGGGG gone. American's are ALL in your face mud-slinging jews.

Even if Trump's managers were half-wits (which I doubt), he's already got a 2 ft. high stack of dripping prime rib Clinton on a silver platter, cooked to perfection and waiting for the dinner bell.

But, you can be sure that the very dirty Team Clinton has their stack of stuff on Trump too.

crossroaddemon's picture

The fact that it hasn't been pulled out speaks volumes. I'm increasingly convinced that this is scripted and Trump will win because he has been setup to win.

Prophet of Rage's picture

Exactly. IF there were a "stack of stuff" on Trump, don't you think Little Marco or Low Energy Jeb! or Lyin Ted would have pulled it out??

I don't think they have any dirt on him. This is why they are going after stupid things like his company's bankruptsies, his tax returns, nude pics of his wife, his hair, that business about him acting as his own publicist and trolling that reporter.

This is all they have to attack Trump with.

crossroaddemon's picture

That's not what I was suggesting. I'm guessing there's plenty of dirt on trump, but it's not getting pulled out because he has been selected to win.

NidStyles's picture

The guy doesn't even use profanity. I doubt they have anything of worth on him. If he's truly been planning to run since the early 90's, that means he's been playing this one close lipped, and has been making sure that there was nothing they could hold against him.

 

Say what you want about the guy, but he's not an idiot.

crossroaddemon's picture

Sigghhh... he doesn't use profanity in public. How does he talk in a more private setting? You don't know.  All you know about him is what has been divulged in the press. Look, nobody gets to where he is and stays clean. Nobody. If they're not bringing out dirt it's because they don't want to. Face it, Trump will not be elected. He has been CHOSEN.

Remember a few months ago, when Hillary tried to go after Trump by playing the misogynist card? Trump tweeted ONCE about Bill's record on the subject. The bitch hasn't had the guts to go near the subject again.

BorisTheBlade's picture

He doesn't drink or smoke and never have. Now, that's a tough case unlike most politicians who have plenty of dirt on them and are totally controllable.

Prophet of Rage's picture

You may be right about that one. I'm not convinced that the whole thing isn't fixed. BUT it seems to me like it was originally fixed to be Jeb vs. Hillary. Then after nobody bought that sack of bullshit, they tried to push little marco as "being the guy". After that didn't work it was then Ryan and the contested convention. Well, that didn't work either. It just seems like thier orignal plan didn't work and Trump was the one who fucked it up.

But going back to what I mentioned earlier, If that was the case, they would have pulled out thier "dirt" on Trump back when Jeb! was the guy...

 

crossroaddemon's picture

Unless they are more subtle than you think and Trump has been chosen from day 1.

I fucking love it. That sociopathic bitch has to be so hot, maybe we ll get some of that spontaneous human combustion.

all part of the Trump plan - get her soooooo worked up emotionally into a rage fit, it will distract her focus and she'll unknowingly show her true face & colors.

Wonder if Trump will also bring up the fair bit of evidence that Chelsea is actually the child of Webb Hubbell...

I have read that before.  I also read that she could be the love child of Hilary and Janet Reno. Chelsea is that fucking ugly, may be something to it!

You get bad service more than once at a restaurant and it's not fixed you can either never eat there again or you can try talking to ownership.

Everyone is arguing over the managers but we really need to talk to the owners about this stuff.
