Skip to comments.14 Years Later, Mystery Still Remains in the Death of Vince Foster
Posted on 07/22/2007 4:36:02 AM PDT by GFritsch
14 yers ago today, on July 20, 1993, the body of Vincent Walker Foster, Jr. was found in a Virginia park, next to a civil war cannon, with an unidentified revolver lodged in the right hand. Vincent Foster died of a small-caliber gunshot wound to his head.
Vince Foster was not only deputy White House counsel but also the personal attorney to Bill and Hillary Clinton. On the night of Fosters death, top Clinton aides made a frantic effort to enter and remove documents from his West Wing office. In the days that followed, federal investigators were stymied in their investigation of Fosters office and strange death.
The following happened within weeks of his death. Vince Foster finally files the missing Whitewater tax returns. On July 19, FBI director William Sessions is fired. Clinton personally orders him by phone to turn in his FBI property and leave headquarters.
That evening, Clinton security aide Jerry Parks' wife Jane says she overhears a heated telephone conversation with Vince Foster in which her husband says, "You can't give Hillary those files, they've got my name all over them."
On July 20, Clinton names Louis Freeh as Sessions' successor.
That same day, the FBI raids David Hale's Little Rock office and seizes documents including those relating to Capital-Management.
Just hours after the search warrant authorizing the raid is signed by a federal magistrate in Little Rock, Vince Foster apparently drives to Ft. Marcy Park.
Foster was found dead of an apparent gunshot wound to the head in Ft. Marcy Park. His unoccupied car, a 1989 Honda, was found in the park's parking lot. Several witnesses - before and after the arrival of the park police - have claimed they saw a briefcase in Foster's car.
A so-called suicide note was found in an office briefcase that had been searched and found to be empty after Fosters death. The note was torn into 27 pieces. Yet an FBI examination found no trace of Fosters fingerprints on the note and three independent handwriting experts determined that Foster's suicide note, was a forgery.
The Raid of Vince Fosters Office While the U.S. Park Police studied the body, Foster's office at the White House was being looted.
Secret Service agent Henry O' Neill watched as Hillary Clinton's chief of staff, Margaret Williams, carried boxes of papers out of Vincent Foster's office before the Park Police showed up to seal it, yet the official identification of Vincent Foster's body by Craig Livingstone did not take place until 10PM!
Another Secret Serviceman saw Craig Livingston remove items from Vincent Foster's office in violation of the official seal. Witnesses also saw Bernard Nussbaum in Foster's office as well. Three witnesses noted that Patsy Thomason, director of the White House's Office of Administration, was desperate to find the combination to Vincent Foster's safe. Ms. Thomason finally opened the safe, apparently with the help of a special "MIG" technical team signed into the White House in the late hours. Two envelopes reported to be in the safe by Foster's secretary Deborah Gorham, addressed to Janet Reno and to William Kennedy III, were never seen again. When asked the next day regarding rumors of the safe opening, Mack McLarty told reporters Foster's office did not even have a safe, a claim immediately shot down by former occupants of that office.
The next day, when the Park Police arrived for the official search of Vincent Foster's office, they were shocked to learn that Nussbaum, Thomason and Williams had entered the office. Conflicts channeled through Janet Reno's Department of Justice resulted in the Park Police merely sitting outside Foster's office while Bernard Nussbaum continued his own search of Foster's office. During this search, he opened and upended Vincent Foster's briefcase, showing it to be empty. Three days later, it would be claimed that this same briefcase was where the torn up suicide note was discovered.
The boxes of documents removed from Foster's office by Hillary Clinton's chief of staff, Margaret Williams, were taken to the private residence area of the White House! Eventually, only 54 pages emerged.
One set of billing records, under subpoena for two years, and thought to have originated in Foster's office, turned up unexpectedly in the private quarters of the White House, with Hillary's fingerprints on them.
So, who ordered the office looting?
Bill Clinton was unavailable, being on camera with Larry King. But Hillary Clinton, who had only the day before diverted her planned return to Washington D.C. to Little Rock, was on the phone from Little Rock to someone at the White House in the moments before the looting took place.
The death of Vince Foster is very unsettling. There is an amazing amount of inconsistent information surrounding his death, the investigation and the autopsy. And, of course, his close relationship with Hillary was intriguing. Many books have claimed that the two were lovers for several years.
To date, several unanswered questions still remain. What did the White House know and when did they know it? Another question: If Foster was not identified as a White House official until at least an hour and a half after police arrived, why were police officers associated with an elite federal unit on the scene within 45 minutes? Evidence suggests that White House officials were informed of Foster's death, at least an hour before they claim to have been initially notified.
The FBI never officially investigated the case but simply signed off on the Park Police "probe." The bureau had little choice.
Later, Robert Fiske, selected by Clintons counsel Bernie Nussbaum and Janet Reno, quickly confirmed the Park Police probe as a suicide. Yet, no fewer than three of the paramedics on the scene indicated in reports or testimony that the crime scene was consistent with a murder scene, not a suicide.
? A careful FBI microscopic investigation of Fosters shoes found not a trace of soil or grass stains on them, though he supposedly walked several hundred yards through wooded Fort Marcy Park to where his body was found. [Years later, Starrs investigation found plenty of soil and grass stains. Rodriguez charged that the shoes were tampered with to produce such "evidence."]
? Foster was found with little blood around his body and despite claims that he fired the gun into his mouth, practically no blood was found on the front of his shirt.
? Foster was found with a 1913 revolver no one in his family could claim, with two serial numbers, made from the parts of three or more guns. None of Fosters fingerprints were found on the gun. The bullet that supposedly killed Foster was never found, despite intensive searches.
? The first witness to find the body insisted that there had been no gun near the body. The memory in Foster's pager had been erased. Critical evidence began to vanish. Many witnesses were harassed. Others were simply ignored. There were even suggestions that the body had been moved, and a Secret Service memo surfaced which reported that Foster's body had been found in his car! The official reports were self-contradictory.
? All of the X-rays taken during the autopsy are missing. Complete crime scene photos dont exist. The Park Police said all the photos were "accidentally" overexposed. A series of close-up Polaroids, which Favish is suing for, remain.
? A briefcase in the car of Vincent Foster was removed after U.S. Park Police arrived at his death scene. The briefcase, which may have carried important documents, was never listed on official evidence reports compiled by park police who conducted the first investigation into the White House deputy counsel's death.
Hillary Clinton was trying to gain leverage over her husband, possibly in relation to future divorce proceedings. It is possible Mrs. Clinton wanted to get to the bottom of persistent rumours about her husband's philandering before subjecting herself and her daughter to the media glare of a presidential campaign. At the time, Mrs Clinton and Vince Foster were partners at the Rose Law firm.
Did Hillary Clinton have an affair with Little Rock lawyer Vincent Foster? According to retired Arkansas State Trooper Larry Patterson, "There is no doubt in my mind that there was a long, ongoing sexual relationship between Hillary Clinton and Vince Foster."
Patterson, who guarded the Clintons for more than six years, made the new disclosures on the audiotape set "More than Sex: The Secrets of Bill and Hillary Clinton Revealed"
Patterson said that on one occasion, at a birthday party for Hillary Clinton, he saw Foster touch Hillary in private areas of the body twice. Patterson said his belief about Hillary and Vince was formed after years of observation during the frequent meetings between the two, when Bill was out of town, and the stories of other troopers.
Patterson gives eyewitness details of several occasions upon which he saw Vince and Hillary in compromising situations.
On the day of Vince Fosters death, Patterson said he learned about the death before the Park Police even found Fosters body and hours before the White House said they were informed. Pattersons information, corroborated by another trooper, exposes a cover-up bigger than Watergate.
A case arose from an overall conspiracy to obstruct justice in connection with federal investigations into the death of deputy White House counsel Vincent W. Foster.
Patrick Knowlton was in Ft. Marcy Park the afternoon that Vincent Foster died. What Knowlton saw and what happened to him afterwards is one of the most disturbing stories of the whole Clinton saga. You can read the testimony here
Miguel Rodriguez was a prosecutor on the staff of Kenneth Starr. His attempts to uncover the truth in the Vincent Foster death case were repeatedly foiled, and he was the subject of planted stories undermining his credibility and implying that he was unstable. Rodriguez eventually resigned.
After learning of Fosters death, Jane Parks, the wife of Jerry Parks claims that her husband said, "I'm a dead man". Parks had collected detailed data on Clinton's sexual escapades, including pictures and dates. His wife claims federal agents subsequently removed his files and computer, and that Bill Clinton still owed him $81,000.
(Note. Two months later, Jerry Parks is found murdered gangland-style )
They were helped by communism.
I believe that Hillary (everything about her background is a bald-faced lie) and Bill are star-crossed lovers. Red Star, that is.
They were selected by the USSR to get a start in American politics, and where else but good ole Arkansas where Billy was born to a woman who had no idea who his father was.
Hillary is touted as being from an upper-middle class family, but they were a household of losers.
Where the money came from to put these two marxists through the 'best' schools is a mystery. The leftist Senator Fulbright helped Bill along, but it was at the bidding of his handlers.
Bill was positioned to become attorney general of Arkansas at a salary of about $10M/year then the voters moved him into the governor's mansion where the $16M salary would't buy much, but everything else was furnished including a nanny to tend to little Chelsea.
When the USSR started to fall apart, the Communist Chinese picked up the contract and proceeded to move into Little Rock by buying the Worthen Bank in order to be close to their two proteges.
These two are communist agents, let there be no doubt about that.
Hillary failed the bar exam in DC as well -—kept it hidden for 30 years
from The Australian June 7, 2007 Thursday
HEADLINE: Hillary blamed for some of Bill’s worst errors
“Some members of the White House staff say she uses her religiosity as a cover for her faults. Some see it as a mask in her relationship with her husband “She elevates her staying with (Clinton) to a moral level of biblical proportion”
Many were convinced that longtime friend and defence counsel Vince Foster, who later committed suicide, worshipped Hillary from the start. Those who knew them best doubted that they had had an affair. One friend wasn’t sure:
“He loved Hillary. I hoped they had an affair. I think they both deserved it. They both had complicated spouses, complicated marriages”
Hillary, said an aide, “hates the fact that Bill Clinton cheats on her, and that he doesn’t need her as much as she wants. And he’s weak. She’s a very judgmental Methodist from the Midwest. As much as they talk about loving the sinner, they actually also despise a part of the sinner. They hate the weakness. They hate the part of the person who can’t toe the puritan line.”
Hillary knew marrying Bill would mean living in Arkansas and forgoing a prestigious job in Washington or New York. At Bill’s urging, she sat the Arkansas bar exam which she passed. She also sat the DC bar exam, but she failed - a fact she kept hidden for 30 years and took as a sign to marry Bill “When I learnt that I passed in Arkansas but failed in DC, I thought maybe my test scores were telling me something”
I took care of the bags
.... he held jobs as diverse as doing public relations for a casino in Atlantic City and the film The Last Temptation of Christ,...
Where to begin?
What a tissue of lies this puff-piece is.
He did everything he was asked to do. He took care of the bags alright. His Atlantic City job was as a bouncer and it's not surprising that he did the PR for the sacreligious Last Temptation mess.
Hillary didn't know him. Bill had no idea who hired him.
Sean Hannity is supposed to air a segment tonight (Sunday) at 9:00 PM Eastern on the VF case.
Please cite evidence to support what the son said. On this thread his wife said it was his father’s hand gun.
V.F. was killed under the direct orders of either a) the scum that was president, or b) the "scum-ette" that is about to be president. It does not matter at all by whom.
However, screaming this to all those on this website, or proving it beyond a shadow of a doubt so that even the main stream media would have no choice but to believe will have little to no effect in the real world.
And the "scum-ette" (and additionally, either an accessory to the fact or a murderess) will indeed be the next president.
Wonder what that tells us about this country?
Quite the opposite. It was very apparent that he was suffering from depresion. One obvious sign of this was that he called his physician a few days earlier in order to get treatment for depression.
There is no mystery,for one reason or another he pissed hillary off.
Reference your last paragraph. Your assessment is 100% correct.
98% of all Americans are either too stupid or too complacent to know or care about what is happening.
The biggest mystery is, how many millions of dollars did the scumbag Clintons pay to Foster’s wife to keep her mouth shut?
I would add that the Ford Building archives on the Clinton scandals are available to be viewed by all Congressmen. Any Congressman could go public with whatever he saw. So far, from Republicans in Congress: (crickets)
This obstruction should disqualify her from government office.
Watch out now folks. There are people that work for Obama and maybe even Edwards that are willing to attack other liberals for their candidate. Someone might release some really signicant stuff soon.
Teddy probably now has a driver so he can get the young girls home safely
Just another nail in her coffin...
Hillary didn’t know him. Bill had no idea who hired him.
Oh yeah...did you notice that punk Stufinenvelopeslos’ comment?
This guy Livingston was specifically hired to do the BJ’s bidding. Small time and now where is he?
Didn’t his son also die a few years later? What was that about? Or am I thinking of a different Clinton scandal?
The 98% who cannot get away from their televisions, anyway. This has been a major victory for propaganda.
Want an enemy? Start with the Media.
That's who dictates "truth" to their beery little heads.
Then, remove any ability for critical thinking courtesy of the Teachers' Unions, who, coincidentally vote...How?
There is absolutely no reason to believe that this wasn’t a hit and the body was placed at Ft Marcy Park, little to no blood and no skull or brain tissue on the ground?? with a penetrating skull injury... Hillary cannot be allowed to regain power, if she does she will turn the U.S. into another Mexico ...
