Hillary Clinton’s entry into the presidential race was inevitable. So too was the resurrection of all the scandals from her past.
For those old enough to remember the 1990s, it’s easy to recite the litany: Monica. Whitewater. And, of course, Vince Foster.
Foster, a former White House aide during the Bill Clinton administration, was found dead in a park in the summer of 1993. His death was ruled a suicide by two investigations, but questions and suspicions have remained.
Now, conspiracy theories that have long been confined to out of print books and the darker corners of the internet are going mainstream, thanks to Donald Trump.
According to Breitbart.com:
Presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump, in a recent interview, brought up former White House aide Vincent Foster’s suspicious death, among other scandals surrounding Bill and Hillary Clinton in the 1990s.
“It’s the one thing with her, whether it’s Whitewater or whether it’s Vince Foster or whether it’s Benghazi. It’s always a mess with Hillary,” Trump reportedly said in a recent interview, bringing up Foster’s suicide. (…)
Trump recently said the circumstances around Foster’s death seemed “fishy,” and allegations of foul play are “very serious.”
“He knew everything that was going on, and then all of a sudden he committed suicide,” Trump stated. (…)
[N]ewly discovered evidence increased belief that foul play was involved and resulted in an alleged coverup.
Should that evidence prove credible, Trump’s critics will have to stop complaining that he’s using debunked evidence to “smear” Hillary Clinton.
But the question is: Will allegations that Foster’s body had two gunshot wounds — thus ruling out suicide — be substantiated before the November election?
