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.

LBJ  killed JFK and got sworn in as pres.

Why not Clinton?

I do not believe, that one dead body can stop her.

iAmerican's picture

LBJ was just a sex pervert errand boy on the Senate Intelligence Cmte fully under the control of the Knight of Malta, Roman Catholic CIA. When the news came back to the Capitol from Dallas the Congressional committee drawing up his impeachment as VP for the TFX/F111 scandal adjourned...permanently.

The order for the hit came from Rothschilds and Rockefeller to restore the FedScam JFK had ended and to return our troops sent to Guam back "in country" as papal catspaw for the five percent Roman Catholic colonial ruling false-elite which owned 95% of Vietnam's wealth.

The field supervisors for the adjudicated CIA hit were GHW Bush and R. Nixon.

I remember seeing movies of EL-BJ driving around his TX ranch in a convertible in the late 60s or early 70s w/a shot gun on the seat and his hair as long as the hippies he derrided earlier in his career.  He was broken man who had lost the power he so craved, driven from office in part by the constant chants outside the WH, "Hey, hey EL-BJ, how many boys did you kill today?"  Never underestimate the power of the persistent drumbeat of criticism.

The cunt murdered those four Americans in Benghazi - obviously not the first time the cunt has done this.


Good on Trump to call out the cunt and the pedophile as to other murders these two have ordered.



Take that Hillary you fucking cunt!!!!

Remember too that Stevens was apparently sodomized w/an inanimate object prior to being was Khadaffi (sp?) at the hands of a mob.  

For the former, Hitlery was indifferent ("what difference does it make?").  For the latter she was jubilant, hysterically laughing, "we came, we saw, he died."  Khadaffi was no saint to be sure, but it is unseemly in the extreme to have a Secretary of State laughing at the demise of another.  A true psycho.

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

So he thinks he can get some traction by bringing up Foster's murder and the investigation by the park service ... but still hasn't brought up WTC7 collapse and investigation by NIST?

This rat is really getting stinky!

Patience is a virtue until you come to realize your enemy's most effective weapon is stalling and delay.

Who killed JFK? "That was a long time ago ... who cares?" you say? Yet the Holohoax becomes religion ... less they forget what we "told" them happened.

Mr. Ant. ISIS (the Mossad/CIA) tool is still working at tearing down Rome (now the Syrian part), even though it's long dead. They evidently see it as forensic evidence. They went after the museums in Baghdad first thing. Why did they do that?

Patience? Water getting pretty hot Mr. Frog?

Banbait #55

Protocols 1:6 "Political freedom is an idea but not a fact. This idea one must know how to apply whenever it appears necessary with this bait of an idea to attract the masses of the people to one's party for the purpose of crushing another who is in authority. This task is rendered easier if the opponent has himself been infected with the idea of freedom, SO-CALLED LIBERALISM, and, for the sake of an idea, is willing to yield some of his power. It is precisely here that the triumph of our theory appears; the slackened reins of government are immediately, by the law of life, caught up and gathered together by a new hand, because the blind might of the nation cannot for one single day exist without guidance, and the new authority merely fits into the place of the old already weakened by liberalism."

Protocols 4:1 "...but to unseen and secretly hidden, yet nevertheless sensibly felt despotism in the hands of some secret organization or other, whose acts are the more unscrupulous inasmuch as it works behind a screen, behind the backs of all sorts of agents, the changing of whom not only does not injuriously affect but actually aids the secret force by saving it, thanks to continual changes, from the necessity of expanding its resources on the rewarding of long services."

If you took a picture of what the Democratic party supposedly stood for...the Clinton's would be the negative of that picture.  Yet here we are, Dems rolling out Cankles as their Presidential nominee and they call Trump 'Teflon Don'.  In order to get the nickname Teflon, I guess somebody in the media has to be throwing things at you.  Wonder why Hillary doesn't have a nickname?

Vince Foster huh?  And Trump hasn't even touched Mena and Barry Seals murder in Baton Rouge yet.  Don Henry and Kevin Ives who were found dead on the the railroad tracks outside of Mena.  The trail of bodies tied to Bill and Hill, is staggering.

According to Chip Tatum it was Jeb Bush who arranged for the Colombian hit team to whack Barry Seals.

Barry Seals was said to have video of Jeb and GW picking up a kilo at Tamiami Airport in Florida. They were inadvertantly caught on tape during a DEA sting.

Seals apparently kept all the evidence in the trunk of his Cadillac. All the contents of the trunk went conveniently missing after the FBI took over the investigation.

So "Donald"...

If you're willing to take the kind of risks you're taking with the CIA and the rest of the Jewish Mafia that probably killed Vince... Then perhaps you're willing to go after the "biggest fish" that helped finish off the U.S. economy for good on September 11, 2001?!...

If only to reasonably point out where we've been... what we've done and what we are capable of continuing to do... And why it won't stop until those inside the walls of the White House and Congress wear prison stripes or swing from the end of rope in order to ensure that it never happens in at least or lifetime... Ever again!

Sure wish ZH would publish the latest from "Insane" McCain making an announcement this week that he wants new legislation to protect whistleblowers... "Yes"... You heard this correctly!!!

You ask how this could come from the lowest form of life the Senate has?....

Well the rats are very restless in D.C. per the utterance(s) of candidate like "The Donald", and they are pondering the serious nature of America's appetite for a conventional war with the likes of Russia and China that include nuclear exchange a la mode not looking like a possibility with the real potential of a war crimes tribunal somewhere in their future as the stock needles continue to go green without a future!!!

Personally, I like Trump and without a doubt, considering who the other "contender" is, he has the potential to "make America Great Again". But that is not what this whole "Presidential Election" is about, for me. It's not about getting a better captain at the helm of the Titanic. I don't see how the great Liner America can recover, the "millenials" will make sure of that. But at least, historically speaking, what is taking place is that all those who have aligned themselves with the Dark Side are finally getting exposed. The Dark House of Cards is beginning to come down. Trump just happens to have circumvented their "Mind-Fields" with his exposure on prime time TV. He's now got the attention of the masses and the Zionist Media and he's going to methodically do something that no person has ever been able to do in the history of this country. He's going to show us how the proverbial Satanists run the show. One doesn't have to be a bible thumper to see what's going on here.


Heck, Trump might not even really care about becoming president. He's got June, July, August, September, October then November, that's a lot of days on TV, and a lot of corrupt people who have consciously tried to fuck the masses over will have the opportunity to go under his knife. If Trump survives, there's going to be a lot of gnashing of teeth in the political and corporate world. To me this will simply be a form of reality entertainment that will be about as real as real can get.


I'd Love to see him go after the Mulatto in Chief.

Seer's picture

Everyone believes that Their side is right.

That anyone can even pretend to know what Trump is going to do is nothing more than self-projection.

Most people have no capacity to understand simple concepts like growth.  Like what happens when you try to force the exponential function to perpetually operate on a finite planet.  It's about the parabola, about how ALL things rise and then fall.  ALL empires collapse:  And, sorry to break the news to the religious fanatics and technology fanatics, both believing that THEY have THE "solution," no set of beliefs, no "leader," and no "system" has ever managed to keep a civilization from collapse.  The odds of it happening are more than remote.

Ah,  but the righteous will always claim that THEY are the exception.  Never has a people or a nation not stated otherwise.  Human hubris.  Humans are deceptive.  So, all the down-voters that I shall attract with this post can offer up their hubristic and deceptive talk as rebuttal to what are already known to be fact (fact trumps "truth").

Rabbit hole...

Imagine digging into this and pulling out skeletons that bring back Reagan!  Oh, my!  I so loved that era of Colonel North!  And if we could pop off the cover on this one then maybe JFK's murder?  Fuck, in short order we'd have Area 51 peeled!

Seriously, I'm mostly serious about this.  I would LOVE to know all this.  But given that TPTB are precisely TPTB because they have had their hands in controlling all of this I highly doubt that anything relating to FACTS s going to be uncovered/revealed.

This is all back to the good old days (as far back as the 1800s) when mudslinging (aided and abetted by the newspapers) was the rule of political campaigns.  We're back to the "good old days," making "America great again!"

Trump is dominating the news cycles with a shotgun approach so the Clinton's can't use the media to attack. The MSM is playing wack-a-mole.

Trump found a way to use the liberal MSM against themselves. If they try defending the Clintons the MSM just gives the scandals more legs and a longer news cycle.

And the MSM doesn't have credibility to challenge Trump on the scandals because they were the ones covering up the scandals for the last 25 years.
