Vanished! FBI records on Vince Foster missing, Hillary lied

Of all the scandals that plague Hillary Clinton, none is as damning as her role in the death of Vince Foster. He and Hillary had been close friends – and rumors say, possibly much more – before he allegedly committed suicide in 1993.

Now, compromising FBI records about Clinton’s role in Foster’s death have disappeared from the National Archives, news outlets have deleted their coverage of the story, and the so-called “Clinton body count” keeps piling up.

The newest accusation of missing documents doesn’t come from Alex Jones or the “vast right-wing conspiracy,” but from Ronald Kessler, a former investigative reporter with the Wall Street Journal and Washington Post who has written 20 books.

Kessler is respected and credible — and he says he has proof that Hillary has something to hide in the death of her longtime friend.

Kessler made two separate visits to the National Archives and Records Service in College Park, Maryland. The first time, archivist David Paynter brought him a box with FBI records that detailed Hillary Clinton’s role in Foster’s 1993 death.

When he returned, archivist James Mathis brought him the same box, with the same material – except all the condemning FBI records about Hillary Clinton had been removed.

“The reports on Hillary Clinton’s role in his death were absent,” Kessler wrote in The Daily Mail.

Foster and Clinton had a relationship that went back to the 1970s, when they worked together at the Rose Law Firm. They had lunch on an almost daily basis at a posh Little Rock eatery. Soon, they had dinner regularly, too.

People who worked with them said they had an affair that lasted all the way until after Bill Clinton was elected president, according to Bill & Hillary: So This Is That Thing Called Love, written by Darwin Porter and Danforth Prince.

What no one disputes is that Hillary Clinton publicly berated her longtime friend in front of his colleagues shortly before his death. FBI agent Coy Copeland told Kessler that Hillary blamed Foster for everything that had gone wrong in Bill Clinton’s first six months as president – the scandalous appointments, Hillary’s health care fiasco, everything.

According to Copeland, Hillary told Foster “he didn’t get the picture, and he would always be a little hick town lawyer who was obviously not ready for the big time.”

Copeland and another FBI agent, Jim Clemente, told Kessler that Hillary’s tirade was “the final straw” for Foster.

But all the proof of this has conveniently vanished from the National Archives, Kessler wrote. Federal employees won’t admit that the documents had been destroyed, only that they could be filed away somewhere else in one of the other 3,000 boxes and 7.5 million pieces of paper that Ken Starr’s investigation produced.

Not only are the documents disappearing – even articles about the documents have evaporated into thin air.

The prestigious International Business Times ran an article on August 23 by Cortney Drakeford titled, “What Really Happened to Vince Foster? FBI Files Linking Hillary Clinton To Suicide Of White House Employee Vanish.” But someone quickly pulled the piece from the IBT’s website.

In true 1984 fashion, the article and the documents are gone — poof! — right down the memory hole.

The National Archives have revealed a lot of sizzling evidence that entangles Hillary and the Clinton machine deeper in the alleged suicide.

Vince Foster died on July 20, 1993, in Fort Marcy Park, from a .38 caliber gunshot wound.

He supposedly committed suicide, but investigators also found evidence of a possible second small caliber wound in his neck, according to a 31-page memo written by Ken Starr’s lead prosecutor, Miguel Rodriguez, researchers discovered in the National Archives.

Whatever happened to the FBI files, they’re not the only documents that have gone missing under mysterious circumstances.

Former Clinton National Security Adviser Samuel “Sandy” Berger stole and destroyed three classified documents about terrorism from the National Archives in October 2003. He died last December. An external hard drive containing classified materials from the Clinton administration vanished from the National Archives in March 2009.

The newest document scandal is even more suspicious, since it comes after numerous people who have exposed other Hillary Clinton scandals have died by unusual means:

·         Seth Rich, who is rumored to have been a source of the WikiLeaks revelations that the DNC rigged the Democratic primaries for Hillary Clinton, was murdered in what police say was a botched robbery in Washington, D.C. on July 10th.

·         John Ashe, former UN General Assembly president, dropped a barbell on his own throat on June 22nd, just before he was to testify about a Chinese businessman who smuggled hundreds of thousands of dollars to the Clinton Foundation.

·         Victor Thorn, an anti-Clinton researcher who wrote four books about Hillary’s scandals, committed suicide on August 1st.

·         Jim McDougal, who had been working with Ken Starr on the Whitewater scandal, had a heart attack  in 1998 and died at age 58 in a federal prison, just months after accusing Hillary Clinton of perjury.

It’s not just documents that seemingly disappear if the Clinton family is threatened.

Former independent special counsel Ken Starr dropped a new Hillary Clinton bombshell in his new book, “Contempt: A Memoir of the Clinton Investigation,” which hit bookshelves couple months back.

Starr says Hillary lied to him hundreds of times about former White House adviser Vince Foster’s suicide — and he considered charging her with perjury.

Starr wrote that he strongly considered charging Hillary with perjury over her “preposterous” deposition when questioned over Foster’s death.

“I was upset over Mrs. Clinton’s performance, and was even considering bringing the matter before the Washington grand jury for possible indictment on perjury,” Starr wrote.

According to Starr’s account, Hillary was clearly lying under oath. Because the burden of proof was too high, though, Starr ultimately decided not to pursue charges.

“In the space of three hours, she claimed, by our count, over a hundred times that she ‘did not recall’ or ‘did not remember,’” Starr wrote. “This suggested outright mendacity. To be sure, human memory is notoriously fallible, but her strained performance struck us as preposterous.”

 “Proving that someone knowingly lied when they said ‘I don’t recall’ or ‘I don’t remember’ is extremely difficult, especially if that person is the First Lady,” Starr told Fox News’ Tucker Carlson. “What was clear was that Mrs. Clinton couldn’t be bothered to make it appear as if she were telling the truth.”

“You have to be able to prove the case. There are clear differences between what a prosecutor knows and what a prosecutor can prove,” Starr said. “We just did not have the evidence to bring those charges.”

However, the memories of Foster’s death continue to disturb Starr, he wrote in his explosive new book.

“In many ways, I was a lot like him: serious about the law, conscientious, and loyal to a fault. Foster had been needled by the media, which I knew all too well could be brutal, especially for someone not used to the public eye,” Starr wrote.

 “I was haunted by … what did Vince Foster do, as the deputy counsel to the president? He took his own life. We knew that he was depressed. We had very significant evidence that he was clinically depressed. Why was he clinically depressed? Complex question,” Starr told Carlson.

“But that’s why I was haunted. Why did this very successful, very bright lawyer take his own life within six months of the administration taking power? And that … haunts me to this day,” he said.
