The investigation into Vince Foster’s 1993 suicide is getting a fresh look.
Republicans at the time raised questions about what really happened.
And why the investigation into Foster’s death has resurfaced will shock you.
Democrats are using Judge Kavanaugh’s time on Whitewater special prosecutor Kenneth Starr’s team to try and slow down his confirmation.
The left’s goal is to kill any chance of him being confirmed by a mountain of document requests that they hope will lead to death by a thousand cuts.
It’s a long shot.
But it’s the only play Chuck Schumer has since Kavanaugh can be confirmed by a simple majority vote.
Democrats and their allies in the fake news media are now promoting that Kavanaugh is a conspiracy theorist because he once argued allegations Foster was murdered – and that his death was not a suicide – was grounds for expanding Starr’s investigation into Clinton.
Kavanaugh wrote in a 1995 memo:
“We are currently investigating Vincent Foster’s death to determine, among other things, whether he was murdered in violation of federal criminal law,” Kavanaugh wrote to Starr and six other officials in a memo offering legal justification for the probe. “[I]t necessarily follows that we must have the authority to fully investigate Foster’s death.”
Foster’s July 1993 death was the subject of much controversy.
Foster was a Deputy White House Counsel who was found dead off the George Washington Parkway in 1993 from a single gunshot wound.
Foster had been involved in the “Travelgate” scandal where the White House fired seven travel office employees and were accused of improperly replacing them with Clinton cronies from Arkansas.
Previous investigations concluded that his death was a suicide, but there were rumors of foul play and that Foster had carried on an affair with Hillary Clinton.
Kavanaugh came to believe that Foster killed himself and Starr closed this portion of his investigation in 1997.
But Democrats and the media are using Kavanaugh’s pursuit of allegations against the Clintons as evidence he is some kind of deranged lunatic.
But Kavanaugh and Starr said they had a duty to investigate Foster’s death in order to put the controversy to rest once and for all – and not because they were on some Robert Mueller like a crusade to prove the Clinton’s were culpable in murdering Foster
In a 1999 interview with CNN Kavanaugh stated there “a lot of conspiracy theories, a lot of controversy. He took the time and made the effort to turn over every stone, to find the truth.”
Starr echoed these sentiments in an interview with the Washington Post.
The Post reported:
“We cannot have — especially since I was charged with the investigation — an unsettled set of conspiracy theories that go unaddressed,” Starr said. “I viewed it as a matter of accountability, and also just for the good of the country.”
The investigation into Foster’s death was not a fishing expedition.
Kavanaugh performed a civic responsibility by putting a controversy to rest once and for all.
But now Democrats and the fake news media are trying to slime him for doing his job.
