Hillary Clinton and Vincent Foster were friends and business associates at the Rose Law Firm in Arkansas, and Foster followed the Clintons to the White House soon after Bill Clinton’s election as president.
The manner in which his life was ended was ruled to be taken by his own hand– by two independent counsels, Robert Fiske and Kenneth Starr, along with the U.S. Park Police. Congress also looked into the mystery. But critics say these four independent investigations all had one common denominator – the involvement of the FBI – and, therefore, were not really so independent after all.
There have been suggestions that Foster and Clinton had been involved in an affair, while others say Foster may have been involved in shady dealings, but nothing has ever been proven.
One thing that is certain, however, is that Hillary Clinton’s name pops up often in official documents of the Starr Report released by the National Archives, many of them obtained by WND but never reported on by the media.
James “Skip” Rutherford had lunch with Hillary at her mother’s home in Little Rock the morning after Foster’s casualty, and he said Mrs. Clinton “was in complete shock and disbelief at the thought of Foster taking his own life.”
More than two weeks later, she remained incredulous about the ruling.
“Of a thousand people who might self destruct, I would never pick Vince,” Hillary Clinton told the New Yorker in an Aug. 9, 1993, article by Sidney Blumenthal.
Since Hillary seemed not to believe it, it would be reasonable to ask: What changed her mind? Why would she trust the word of Kenneth Starr, the supposed enemy of the Clintons, when there was ample evidence to suggest her friend was assassinated?
Marsha Scott, deputy assistant to the president, had a long closed-door meeting with Foster on Monday, the day before his life was ended. She reportedly asked him about “the weekend.” Scott was also one of the White House core group who came from Arkansas with the Clintons along with Webster Hubbell and Foster. In her deposition, she told investigators she couldn’t remember what they talked about for over an hour, other than her asking Foster how the weekend went. She said she had dealt with the tragedy by blocking it from her memory.
