Skip to comments.Yeah, I Wrote the Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy Memo

I stand by every word of it. And its even worse today.
Of the thousands of Clinton presidential records released to the public last week, one among them has received of the bulk of attention: a 332-page memo from 1995. The memo, which offers an in-depth analysis of the right-wing media, describes how conservative conspiracy theories about the Clintons passed from the fringes to the mainstream.
Lets go all the way back to the summer of 1995.
At the time, my then colleague (and current business partner) Mark Fabiani and I were working at the White House as lawyers in the counsels office and began to receive calls from mainstream media outlets asking us to respond to various bizarre items related to the late Vince Foster, a fellow White House lawyer who had tragically taken his own life in the summer of 1993. At first, we ignored the calls, as there was nothing to the story beyond the terrible loss of one of the president and first ladys friends. However, as the calls continued without letup, and the nature of the questions became even more bizarreto the point where we were asked to comment on alleged eyewitness sightings of Fosterwe knew we had to get to the heart of the matter and began asking the reporters the basis for their questions. All roads led to a mysterious sourcethe newly exploding Internet.

We Freepers are proud members of the VRWC.
Ping to the Class of 97/98.
Impressive. Your typical Harvard left winger who slurps from the politics of division.
Could they be more obvious in their intent? Really?
Right, because there was nothing mysterious about Vince Foster’s death. Unbelievable.
It’s always a sad thing to watch a dumb creature like Mr. Lehane suffer from bovine spongiform encephalopathy.
May his descent into cognitive dissolution go quickly, for everyone else’s sake.
Chris Le Heinous. Marching to the beat of the Liberace drum for years....
,,,the other funny thing that Le Heinous doesn’t realize is that he is basically admitting Hitlery cannot think for herself, but that she had to have a limpy college kid write that line for her to use on the Today show....
I didn’t go anywhere. I’m looking forward to see Moanica Lewinsky’s ex-boyfriend’s so-called wife run.
I wondered whatever happened to the Arkansas State Trooper and driver that had to wait about 50 yards away from the limousine while Hillary and Vince were having their affair. Is he still alive and why hasn’t anyone mentioned it?
On a scale of 0 to 10, when someone on the Left accuses us of something with a magnitude of 3 or 4, it’s because they are doing the same thing only much worse, like an 8 or 9 or 10. They have media cover, and they use their accusations as a distraction for their own much more sinister deeds.
Taken his OWN life...?!

He’s so proud of his lie! The VRWC turned out to be non-existent and Clinton’s groping, harassing and likely raping Democrat women turned out to be true. Yet, the women must have been all lying, right? At least that’s what the DEMe has always stuck with.
Yep, Monica Lewinsky was a vast right-wing conspiracy.
9. Body moved
10. Ectopic blood pooling indicates post-mortem body move (Lazarus..?)
11. Threats to chief investigator
12. Death note written strangely, then torn up, no Foster prints on death note
But, being a Democrat,you had no business-savvy and you didn't go.
Chris Lehane...the original Rat enabling sleazebag.
This isn’t news. It was known in 1995.
BTW, Lehane is every bit the assclown that Jonathan Chait or Dana Milbank is.
Very impressive, Chris. For a Democrat political consultant creating an enduring lie is like painting the Mona Lisa. That’s an awfully pathetic legacy for honest people, though.
I’m a bit confused. The Internet killed him?
I was certain the Clintons had something to do with it.
We should ban the internet. There out a be a law! Write your congressman.
Seriously how many people got their news from the internet in 1993? How many people were even ON the internet in 1993?
And the EVIL Fox News didn't start until 1995, and even then was very hard to find outside of a select few markets.
Many cable companies refused to even "allow" it.
“...as there was nothing to the story beyond the terrible loss of one of the president and first ladys friends.”
This guy is dissembling and revising history from the get go in this article.
Foster was in the administration, not just some friend.
Hell man, don’t stop him...he’s on a roll! ;)
It was the AlGore invented internet. The one that existed in Al’s mind. Chrissy got his info there. So likely all his work is invented as well. Facts are such mutable things...
The doormat Shillary has nothing to complain about. The Klintoon legacy is a stained blue dress.
Ah, those were the days.
There was a theory advanced on FR at the time (I forget who came up with it) that the lead came from the FBI files. The FBI files on George Herbert Walker Bush would have had information about FBI interviews with his family, so that's where they could have learned about his son's arrest, and then gone to the court house to get the records. It was such an old story that just going there on a general fishing expedition might have turned up nothing unless they knew exactly what to ask for.
No you didn’t Chris. Hillary knew Clinton corruption was being documented on the internet, and so, being Hillary, she had the grand, tired, dead-horse idea of “flipping it around!.” SO you and others were tasked with coming up with a spin that started with calling the documented corruption a vast right-wing conspiracy of wild-eyed theories, and then tracking them through the internet. That way you could openly track the net reporting of Clinton conspiracies, while claiming you were tracking lies.
Wow, what a sophisitcated plan. Just like all of Hillary’s sophisticated plans. So sophisticated that now, over a decade later, you have to spin it again to try to prevent it from being seen as what it was - reporting on Clinton corruption.
Oh, I’m sorry. Did I forget to call you a pig?
You’re a pig.
The death of a high government official, personal friends with the first lady and President and his death is investigated by the park police...
Remember back in the 1990s when Patrick Knowlton took some FReepers on tour(s) of Ft Marcy Park?
Bulls Ear, Catnip!
Oh how those days were interesting!
You can click, but you can't hide!
trying to whitewash Hillary’s gaffe. Next will come th media pile-on, newly revealed document dump and character assassination campaign so that Matt Laurer can say with a straight face “Wow, Hillary warned us and was prophetic with the VRWC talk.” The Democrats have all of the machinery in place to craft any “truth” they can imagine.
Chris Lehane should study Alamo Girl’s compilation and refute it if he can. I don’t think he would come close.
I’ve had my VRWC certificate framed since 1998. It still sits on top of my desk.
Even the DOPIEST investigator would want to know exactly who went into his office, what they took out, and why.
IF Foster committed suicide in his office that would raise innumerable questions.
If his body was found in Ft. Marcy park, that would raise even MORE questions.
And he was WH counsel. That's "kind of a big deal".
They should have completely sealed off Foster's office, and let NO ONE in until the investigation was complete.
Jeez people, does anyone think that if it were a republican administration that the press would not only not "laugh" at questions, but DEMAND answers.
Could Nixon, Reagan or Bush have gotten away with this? I think not.
18 erased minutes of tapes is child's play.
Missing documents related DIRECTLY to the president and his wife?
I can only imagine the screaming from the press.
So let me get this straight. A libtard starts a conspiracy talking point about a "vast rightwing conspiracy" and he isn't laughed out of town along with Bubba's corrupt wife as some kind of conspiracy nut?
The "VWRC" meme was a partisan witchhunt.
It served the Clintons to use federal agencies to harass "the opposition".
If there was a "conspiracy" then the "VRWC" groups were an inside Clinton job.
You get the information you want and rarely have to hear a dissenting voice.. . . unless of course you have been indoctrinated to think that news is a neutral category of information. It is not neutral because:
Superficial negativity is cynicism, and liberalism is cynicism about the people who make America work.
- the news is superficial - Theres nothing more worthless than yesterdays newspaper.
- the news is negative - No news is good news because good news isnt news. The news is also negative because of the preference for Man Bites Dog over Dog Bites Man stories. In a country in which progress has been taken for granted, bad news is less usual than good - but never reported, for that very reason.
