The death by gunshot of Hillary Clinton’s lover, lawyer, and best friend in 1993 was the highest suspicious death of a government official since JFK.
Deputy White House Counsel Vince Foster handled the Clinton’s most secretive matters and hired investigators to track down and threaten dozens of women sleeping with Bill.
Hillary and Vince: a story of love, death, and cover-up details the relationship between Hillary and her deceased lover, the lies and intimidation of FBI agents from the beginning and throughout the investigations, and the corruption at the highest levels preventing the lead prosecutor from pursuing the real killers.
Among the many very questionable items in the investigation of Vince Foster’s death are the following:
• The coroner’s report says x-rays were taken, but he later testified to Senators none were taken.
• When a paramedic approached Foster’s body, he saw men running away into the woods.
• The first person to find Foster’s body guarded the entrance to the CIA.
• Hillary testified she did not see Foster for a month before his death. A staffer testified she was in his office several times.
• The FBI never ran a check on the one fingerprint found on the gun.
• Paramedic Richard Arthur explained on record why many items were left unreported: “Lt. Bianchi told me from orders higher up that I’m not allowed to talk to anybody about this if I value my job.”
• An exit wound appears in the Fiske Report thanks to the doctor at the Fairfax County morgue, Julian Orenstein … but he told a reporter he was surprised the Fiske Report implied an exit wound. “I never saw one directly,” he said.
• Detective John Rolla: “I probed his head and there was no big hole there.”
• The lead prosecutor resigned after much pressure from the Office of Independent Counsel: “They told me, to quote, this is a quote: ‘Back off.’ It was either ‘back off’ or ‘back down.’ They used both.”
The book also traces the fascinating and heroic saga of eyewitness to the crime scene Patrick Knowlton, who reluctantly called the authorities to share what he knew, only to find that no one seemed to care. Months later, the FBI called for a perfunctory interview.
When the London Telegraph called a year later, and showed Knowlton that his testimony had been altered, an angry Knowlton agreed to a front page story on the cover-up. Finally, a grand jury called him in to testify, but by that time his car had been bashed in by a man with a crowbar and 25 strange men harassed and intimidated he and his girlfriend on a walk.
Joined by two close friends, Knowlton spent the next several years determined to learn what really happened. His lawsuit went to the Supreme Court but they ruled against him. However, in a fascinating turn of events, Knowlton’s legal fight ended up beating the Establishment.
The book also traces the plight of lead prosecutor Miguel Rodriguez, whose open views on gender and his earring on the weekends convinced higher-ups they had a man they could work with. But when the prosecutor began calling ignored witnesses who could identify the real killers, his superiors intimidated him, threatened him, and threw chairs around his office. They made threats affecting his personal life, Rodriguez said.
The rest of his story is stranger than fiction.
