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.

If he stays alive AND becomes president that will be proof positive he is working for the establishment.

These are all appropriate issues for a general election race against Hillary.

But I don't understand why he's bringing them up now, when the Dems could still switch it up and nominate Bernie.  The superdelegates will choose the Dem nominee.  Why doesn't Trump just establish his centrist creds while Hillary's stuck on the far left fighting off Bernie, and save this material for after the Dem convention?

It seems Trump is trying to get them to nominate Sanders.  But I think Sanders would be harder to beat.

I think you answered your own question.....

He wants the dems to kill-the-hill themselves and thereby destroy themselves from the inside.


I personally think that Biden will be their nominee.


If you have to give Trump something, its thinking outside the box.



Yes We Can. But Lets Not.'s picture

I lived in DC when Foster died.  I went to Fort Marcy Park to have a look around 3 or 4 days after his death.  It is a bit creepy to be alone in the park, because it is frequented by gay men looking to hook up, as are many DC area parks.  In fact, the guy who is said to have discovered Foster's body is said to have been in the park seeking sex.  Anyways, the park is a preserved Civil War fort, that was used during the war to guard the Chain Bridge spanning the Potomac River below.  At the time of Foster's death it was reported that his body was found next to one of the artillery pieces staged in the park, where he is said to have shot himself in the head with an old gun that was a family heirloom.  I located the cannons, and kicked around each, and found zero indication there had been a suicide committed, or a body recovered.  No blood, not even any trodden down grass.

Count me among those who think Foster's death likely went down in a manner other than suggested by the Clinton White House and reported by the media.

Remarkable about the Vince Foster death is the fact that a three-judge panel of federal judges ordered special prosecutor Kenneth Starr to attach to his investigative report of Foster's death a 20-page appendix that basically showed Starr's report was a whitewash.  See


Should have given those judges the Medal of Freedom.  If only there were more federal judges like those three.

Remote Viewing the Next U.S. President


A statistical election model developed by a Political Science Professor, Helmut Norpoth, predicts that Donald Trump will easily beat the competition if he reaches the general election. Norpoth’s model concludes that Trump has a 97 percent chance of defeating Hillary Clinton and a 99 percent chance of defeating Bernie Sanders. According to the professor, the model has a near perfect accuracy rate predicting the past 100 years of American presidential elections.}


So.......we can now talk about FLAT EARTH!...



Dre4dwolf's picture

The only way Trump wont win, is if the country falls apart before he gets a chance and the elections are cancled or.... if Hillary has him assasinated....  or if one of the crazy socialist Sanders supporters assassinates him.

Trump is going to destroy Hillary in any debate.... she is just a bag of hot-air, all you need is someone around with a needle to poke her and all her dirty laundry flops out for all to see.

crossroaddemon's picture

Has it occurred to you that the vote is rigged and the debates scripted? The vote exists to give you the illusion of participation in power, nothing more. You can't seriously believe the tribe allows us to choose the president.

gabeh73's picture

Trump donated money to Clintons. Hillary is crooked. I thnak Trump for making that clear, but Trump is a walking TV show joke who is also a tool of the elite. Trump would not win if the debates were not rigged and real people could enter the debates to upset the scripted controlled debates....if it is really Hillary versus Trump then I guarantee that we lose and they win.

I really like Donald Trump.  However there are pictures and endless witnesses of him on the sex planes and fantasy island at the same time Bill Clinton was there.  Maybe he's not quite as clean as I would like.

I am not in anyway saying this was  anything but a suicide, but I don't think the unsigned "suicide note" was anything but "talking points" dictated by Hillary to Foster. He was told to take the heat on Travelgate, resign and submit a resignation letter with these lies. He could not do so and instead took his own life. Read it yourself:

I made mistakes from ignorance, inexperience and overwork

I did not knowingly violate any law or standard of conduct

No one in The White House, to my knowledge, violated any law or standard of conduct, including any action in the travel office. There was no intent to benefit any individual or specific group

The FBI lied in their report to the AG

The press is covering up the illegal benefits they received from the travel staff

The GOP has lied and misrepresented its knowledge and role and covered up a prior investigation

The Ushers Office plotted to have excessive costs incurred, taking advantage of Kaki and HRC

The public will never believe the innocence of the Clintons and their loyal staff

The WSJ editors lie without consequence

I was not meant for the job or the spotlight of public life in Washington. Here ruining people is considered sport.[31]

if one is to belive the comments made in this suicide not, that every part of the system is corrupt except the clintons, it is impossible , it goes against the laws of physics and judge judy!"If it doesnt make sense it's not true". As for the physics , action and reaction , if its sport to ruin people, how have the clintons been able to stay on the top of their game for so long? I know they play the game the best. Karma

If someone has not already pointed to a premier researcher, investigative reporter, then allow me to suggest first (or second, or tenth) that you GOOGLE DC DAVE (David Martin) and get background and in-depth analysis to this day. Vince Foster's Ghost wanders among us, seeking Justice (vengeance is mine, sayeth The Lord).

Who ever heard of someone shooting themself in a bush in the park?  Why not in his car in the parking lot?  And how about that second alleged GSW to his neck?

Exactly, if you are gona off yourself, you doit in the most spectacular way possible, jumping out of a plane without a parachute etc.. something crazy.

You just start ramping up your risky behavior.... driving motorcycles.... jumping out of planes, cave jumping, if you engage in enough risky behavior eventually the law of numbers will catch upto you, just live life recklessly.... why off yourself?

I hear you brother, it's my base nature to really enjoy the Clinton skewering more than I should.  

Howeva---- If the military-infodata-technology-industrial-wall street-complex succeeds in electing Hill to queen of the US (read: world)---- payback is going to be a bitch. She will unleash a vendetta and revenge on the citizenry with gender/racial/financial/sexual identity/gun/surveillance wars via Exec orders and demagoguery the likes of which have never been seen. Girl (dude) is really pissed, as is her psychopathic crony criminal machine that the plebes have even entertained the notion they can talk that way to the anointed or question anything they do. She will make her enemies pay. She will exact an extreme price for insubordination. She will unleash the full coercive, punitive and surveillance powers of the state upon whoever, whenever and however she wants.  She will make Obama look like Adalai Stevenson. These folks are capable of things most humans can't imagine. 

They live, thrive, operate in the dark places, and exist on the margins of depravity.

Here's to sincerely hoping the Donald's tactics continue to be effective. I don't even care who is Pres, as long as it's not Hillary/Bill. 

insanelysane's picture

MSM was wondering why Trump is firing at Clinton already.  Trump is going to places that Sanders won't go and he is trying to boost Sanders in the primaries to bring a split convention to the Dems.

President Trump is probably our last hope for seeing justice done on behalf of Vince Foster and the other poor souls murdered on the orders of Bill and Hillary Clinton over the last 35 years.

Sizzurp's picture

The Clintons have so many scandals that Trump can dominate the news cycle every day of the week from now until election eve with new accusations.  Meanwhile, Hillary's campaign is consumed with answering questions about Trump's latest jab.  It's a perfect plan that keeps Hillary on constant defense. The media knows the game, but since this stuff is coming from Trump, the presumptive republican nominee, they are forced report the story.  Now all Trump needs is for Monica to come out and re-tell the dirty dress story while smoking a cigar.

Wew, just got back from the Trump rally/protest.  I tell you what, those protesters were some of the most hateful people I've seen in a long time.  One guy was calling people into the rally Uncle Toms.  Funny thing is, they were white.  Another guy was flipping people off right in their face.  I'm surprised he didn't get belted.  Then there was the scraggly bitch calling everybody inbred.  Then they broke through one of the barriers and started fucking with the police horses.  Eventually, all of the illegals started driving around downtown Albuquerque waiving Mexican flags and doing burnouts to the point where the visibility was less than 10' all the way across the street. 


When the people inside the rally got out, they told me that Secret Service was tackling people left and right, and that's when I started seeing fights almost start breaking out.  Eventually, they started tear gassing the people near the entrance to the of the Convention center, and while I didn't even get enough to make my eyes water, I did get a taste.  Fucking tear gas and burning rubber isn't a good smell combo.  After that, I hung around and eventually the gangangbanger fucks came out, and I did watch a fight break out less than 10' from me between some big fat bean burrito eating mother fucker with his shirt off and gang tats all over and some small white guy.  The cops broke that one up quickly.  I got video, but accidentially deleted it. 


Not long after that, about 10 or 15 people started jumping up on squad cars.  My video of that sucks ass because of the glare from the cherries on the tops of the cars.  However, that's when they sent the horse cops in to push the crowd back.  It was near riot conditions.  It seemed to calm down after that, and that's when I decided to leave. 


Tyler, you had better have something on this tomorrow. 


Oh, and as a bonus, I met one of the Infowars field crews.  I don't care for Alex Jones, but when SHTF, his field crews don't stay in the staging area and go where the shit is flying the fastest.  Cool guys.
