Donald Trump appears intent on dredging up every last bit of every Clinton controversy, including the 1993 death of the Clintons’ close personal friend, White House deputy counsel Vincent W. Foster Jr.
Foster “had intimate knowledge of what was going on,” Trump told The Washington Post. “He knew everything that was going on, and then all of a sudden he committed suicide.” The presumptive GOP presidential nominee said, “I don’t know enough to really discuss it” but “I will say there are people who continue to bring it up because they think it was absolutely a murder.”
Yes, there is a fringe minority of people who will believe in just about every conspiracy theory. There are hacks who believe that Foster died in the White House and that his body was moved. There was even a member of Congress who fired bullets into a cantaloupe (or was it a watermelon?) in an effort to prove that Foster was killed.
But there were also five official investigations into Foster’s death, conducted by professional investigators, forensic experts, psychologists, doctors and independent prosecutors with unlimited resources.
The idea that Trump would bring up this moldy old Right Wing conspiracy theory is laughable on its face, unless of course you have a familial connection to the deceased.
Courtesy of The Hill:
Sheila Foster Anthony, the sister of a onetime top aide to President Bill Clinton, wrote an opinion piece published Thursday in The Washington Post titled, "Vince Foster was my brother. Donald Trump should be ashamed."
Anthony said insinuating that Hillary Clinton played a role in her brother's death was "wrong" and "irresponsible."
"This is scurrilous enough coming from right-wing political operatives who have peddled conspiracy theories about Vince’s death for more than two decades," Anthony wrote.
"How could this be coming from the presumptive Republican nominee for president?"
She said the suggestions that her brother was murdered have caused her family "untold pain." But she has never spoken publicly about the incident to maintain their privacy, she wrote.
"For Trump to raise these theories again for political advantage is wrong," she wrote.
"I cannot let such craven behavior pass without a response."
There is no longer a queston as to how low Donald Trump can go.
Essentially for Trump there is no bottom.
