Skip to comments.O'Reilly: I'd Grill Hillary on Foster

Fox News Channel rising star Bill O'Reilly says he doesn't think he'll ever get a chance to interview New York Senator Hillary Clinton.
But just in case, he's got a list of questions all ready to go - a full half of which deal with Mrs. Clinton's late confidant and one-time Whitewater lawyer, Vince Foster, who was found shot to death in a Virginia park in 1993.
"Forty-five minutes after the suicide of your friend, White House counsel Vince Foster, you called your assistant Maggie Williams and sent her to Foster's office. Why?" O'Reilly asks in an imaginary grilling of Hillary in his best-selling new book, "The No Spin Zone."
"Another White House counsel, Bernie Nussbaum, removed files from Foster's office and refused to hand them over to investigators, citing attorney-client privilege. Did you ever talk about those files?" he asks the former first lady.
The Fox News star also wonders about Mrs. Clinton's billing records, which were finally discovered with Foster's handwriting all over the margins.
"They mysteriously turned up inside the White House living quarters with your finderprints on them. How did that happen?" O'Reilly asks Mrs. Clinton.
In his book, Hillary's answers are all left blank.
O'Reilly is one of the few journalists who will acknowledge publicly what most will only say in private: that the apparent cover-up of the circumstances of Foster's death will continue to be a legitimate area of inquiry for as long as the Clintons are in public life.
In December 1999, the Fox host had this extraordinary exchange with independent counsel Ken Starr, who closed out Foster's death as a suicide in 1997.
O'REILLY: Now, some of your investigators have told us off the record that they believe Vince Foster did not commit suicide and that your office was not aggressive enough in investigating the Vince Foster situation. How do you reply?
STARR: Bill, you didn't get that from my investigators. I don't know who you got it from.
O'REILLY: I did.
STARR: Oh, I ...
O'REILLY: I did.
STARR: They - they did not think that ...
O'REILLY: I got it from one of your investigators, I have to tell you. I would never say an untruth on this program.
STARR: All right. OK. All right. Let me just say this.
O'REILLY: Go ahead.
STARR: We looked at every aspect of that invest - of that death, and we came unanimously - those of us involved in it, so I will look forward to finding out who this person was ...

Other topics O'Reilly said he would like to pursue with Mrs. Clinton include questions about her suspect commodities trading and her use of air force jets in her campaign to become senator from New York.
The problem is that there is no way to find the truth from mouths of these human trash. It should be done by a thorough investigation of ALL their activities from day one in the office.
Beyond that, Bill needs to construct something analogous to the two airmen about to testify in "A Few Good Men," as the fictitious Colonel Jessup spilled the beans during an arrogant, "You can't handle the truth!" type of response.
I hope O'Reilly has a favorite "thinking bat."
He was very angry at Drudge for suggesting that he was taking advantage of Rush's hearing loss.
And Mr Foster cries out for vindication and help. Someone needs to take up the cry and ram the cover-up, big time.
A life was lost, a life despondent over Waco-this we know from witnesses to his mental state. His wife has failed to do the right thing. Probably out of hurt and anger over hillary's usurption of her husband.
If Foster was hillary's private attorney-what were we as taxpayers doing paying for his office in the WH? It still stinks-with reason. And no amount of Hillary's snide mocking of those who want answers should stop a full blown investigation. Recently she said, in referring to people who hate her guts, "my goodness, there are people out there who think I killed Vince Foster".
This is one thing she has right.
Smart people who are so sick of the clintons and their tresonous and citizen crushing behavior (when it benefits them) that they are willing to assume the worst. This happens after a filthy track record has been woven time and again. Hillary is going to have to live with this type of suspicion and dislike, call it hatred if you will, for the rest of her days on earth.
And I must say, she has MORE than earned this response.
Am I the first to remark on the incongruity of a computer using, web surfing AmishDude.
<weary sigh> No. No, you are not.</weary sigh>
get 'em nice and loopy, then question them. 'Course, the human rights issue would come up.. but that only applies to humans, right?
Think: Hamster's wheel. Why do you think we have so many children?
