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.

Apparently Vince Foster said, not long before he was killed, that he was about to reveal all he knew to law enforcement.  His body was found in Fort Marcy Park steps from the Saudi Ambassador's residence, rolled up in a rug with his arms by his sides.  No one reviewed the surveillance cameras at the Saudi residence for evidence.


Ron Brown, Clinton's Commerce Secretary and bag man, died in an apparently deliberate plane crash (a bullet was also found in his skull) after similarly telling Clinton that he would tell all if, as he expected, he were indicted.  See Jack Cashill's book "Ron Brown's Body."

Has ZH been bought out by Trump enterprises?

This is the bottom of the barrell, Trumps now spouting conspiracy theories - not really a good thing for a potential president.


The only conspiracy here is how there are so many 'trump supporters' and yet so many poor and recently poorin America.


Better to lick the boots of a rich man than walk barefoot on your own feet?

R u a communist? Got some sort of rich people envy? I don't care anything about Donald one way or the other, EXCEPT the hope he will fuck over this nations top ranking crooks, starting with cankles.Besides if donald is one of them how does that change anything thats already in the pipeline? I say go for the 1% chance that he's not one of them and lets see what happens.

Well done. Well done.

Note: 10000000000000000000X Prior to this year, HealthSouth is clean


and Scrushy is clean and for the most part Enron is clean and Tyco is clean.


Tyco starts its buying spree from here forward.


Tyco is becoming a war profiteer while they are cooking the books and



buying terror war companies with money they didn?t have.



I think Tyco is making a killing on terror war commodities.

READ ABOUT IT..... Vince Foster did NOT kill himself, period!

He could have been drunk and playing with the gun and accidentally shot himself in the mouth.  He might have been lucky.  He might have shot himself twice in the groin.

It's just possiable Vince Foster shot himself (but I doubt even that) It's certain he didn't do it in Fort Marcy Park. If it's not possiable to prove where a man died it sure as hell is not possiable to prove how a man died.

re Vince Foster Suicide "Very Fishy"

Likewise the mysterious JFK Jnr plane-crash (with no less than a "replacemnent" mechanic that fateful day,]) - right before he was considering running for the NY Senate seat vacated by Daniel Patrick Moynihan.

JFK Jnr - needless to say - would have won in a landslide - and buried Hillary once and for all. And THe Bride Of Beelzeebub knew it.

IndyPat's picture

Good one.

Forgot all about that.

NuYawkFrankie's picture

I ran in to JFK Jnr a couple of times - once with Darryl Hannah (who he was dating at the time) - and I've gotta say, he was by far the best-looking guy I;ve ever seen - woulda made George Clooney, in comparison, look like a recovering meth-head who'd just walked into a lampost

So EVERY female - less the usual dildo-dykes - woulda been in his pocket as well as all the guys

iAmerican's picture

No "mystery" remains attached to the murder of JFK, Jr.: a bomb explosion eye and ear witnessed by a dozed credible residents of MV blew the never recovered tail from the plane, and the co-pilot's seat was unbolted and removed from its frame with the body of the flight instructor named on the flight manifest still strapped to it.

100% spot on.
I'd forgotten those "little" details - especially the unbolted seat.

Sick 'em Trump!  He may be trying to drive her out of the race.  He must be figuring that if he hits her hard now, that may prompt the white house to go ahead and prosecute her and get her out....paving the way for Biden-Warren which would be a train wreck for the convention with the Bernie supporters.

I don't think so... I think Trump has been groomed and selected. He's being carefully set up to look like an anti-establishment hero so that he can go in with an overwhelming mandate and get away with fucking anything for at least a year before teh people start to realize they've been had.
