On Tuesday, Donald Trump sent waves through the political community when he made the decision to fire FBI director James Comey. While the media went on to compare Trump to Richard Nixon over the incident, and #Nixonian was trending Tuesday night, Nixon never fired his FBI director. In fact, only one president in the history of the US has done this before and that was Bill Clinton.

In 1993, President Clinton ousted William Sessions as FBI director after Sessions refused to voluntarily step down amid ethical concerns. Sessions, who was appointed by Ronald Reagan, had been under investigation over an alleged tax scheme.

When asked to resign by Clinton, Sessions refused and so Clinton fired him.

In 1993, the LA Times wrote: “The Justice Department report found, among other things, that Sessions had engaged in a sham transaction to avoid paying taxes on his use of an FBI limousine to take him to and from work, that he had billed the government for a security fence around his home that provided no security and that he had arranged business trips to places where he could meet with relatives.”

Sessions was never found guilty of a crime.


What makes Clinton’s firing of Sessions particularly interesting is the fact that Vince Foster was found dead the very next day. While it was most likely a coincidence, its significance proved to be quite the advantage for the Clintons.

Foster committed suicide on July 20, 1993, in Ft. Marcy Park along the Potomac River by placing a .38 caliber revolver in his mouth and pulling the trigger.

Although the suspicious deaths surrounding the Clintons over the years have been largely dismissed as conspiracy theory, many of them, at the very least, deserve scrutiny rather than eye rolls. Vince Foster is one those cases.

Ronald Kessler, formerly an investigative reporter with the Wall Street Journal and the Washington Post, and the author of “The First Family Detail: Secret Service Agents Reveal the Hidden Lives of the Presidents and The Secrets of the FBI,” came out last year with a damning claim.

According to Kessler, “FBI agents investigating the death of Bill Clinton’s Deputy White House Counsel found that Hillary Clinton ‘triggered’ his suicide when she attacked and humiliated her mentor from their former Rose Law Firm in front of other White House aides a week before he took his own life.”

What’s more, according to Kessler, when he went back last year to retrieve the documents describing Hillary Clinton’s role in the death of Foster — they vanished.

According to Kessler’s account, which albeit remains unverified, a box of documents provided upon his second visit to the Archives contained all relevant information from the FBI and other investigators — but was absent “reports on Hillary Clinton’s role” in the suicide of Vince Foster.

A Freedom of Information Act request filed by Kessler produced no results, despite a more thorough search performed by a senior archivist — including files not released through previous FOIA requests. National Archives public liaison, Martha Murphy, explained in an email to the journalist,

“He examined all eight boxes but found no interviews by any investigator that detail any meeting between Hillary Clinton and Vince Foster or the effects of a meeting between Hillary Clinton and Vince Foster on Vince Foster’s state of mind.

“We did not limit ourselves to interviews made by the two individuals [FBI agents] you mention.”

As Claire Bernish pointed out last year, because no documentation was made available by Kessler or the Daily Mail, verifying the accuracy of his FOIA request pursuant to obtaining the documents in question is impossible. However, no plausible reason to doubt his account exists, either — and Kessler has been investigating the Foster suicide for some time, writing several articles about pertinent open questions relating to the Clintons’ role before and after the death.

After then-FBI director Sessions had been fired, Kenneth Star was named as head of the investigation of Foster’s death.

Starr conducted an exhaustive probe into the circumstances surrounding Foster’s suicide — but, as Kessler notes, inexplicably chose to omit from his 38,000-word report the information about Hillary’s public berating and humiliation of the longtime Clinton associate.

Amazingly enough, after being the cause for Clinton’s impeachment after finding that that Clinton had committed perjury in sworn testimony denying having had “sexual relations” with Ms. Lewinsky, Starr now praises the family.

Last year, while speaking at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia, Starr went on a rant essentially exonerating the man who decades prior he tried to bury.

He called Mr. Clinton “the most gifted politician of the baby boomer generation.”

“His genuine empathy for human beings is absolutely clear,” Mr. Starr said. “It is powerful, it is palpable, and the folks of Arkansas really understood that about him — that he genuinely cared. The ‘I feel your pain’ is absolutely genuine.”

Nonetheless, the arbitrary disappearance — or the significant misplacement — of documents directly concerning the suicide of Vincent Foster should certainly raise the eyebrows of anyone following the trail of bodies behind the Clintons. And, although the firing of Sessions is most likely a coincidence, it most certainly had an impact on the investigation of Foster’s death.

    Let’s face it, Comey failed America, because Hillary made sure he was compromised.

    1) Comey’s brother, Peter, works as attorney for Hillary and/or the Clinton foundation– That’s a major conflict of interest. There’s a payment of $6 MILLION to Peter Comey floating around, which needs to be explained.

    2) In light of that, why has Comey refused to investigate Hillary Clinton’s Uranium One Deal, whereby $145 MILLION in stock was paid to the Clinton Foundation, from the RUSSIAN company Rostatom, in exchange for 20 PERCENT of U.S Uranium off FEDERAL LANDS. Those lands belong to every American citizen and our Grand Children for all of the future. Whether it’s a Russian company or not, it is CERTIFIABLY ILLEGAL for any public official, including SECRETARY OF STATE Hillary Clinton to get paid royalties from mineral production off those lands.

    3) So Comey’s brother works for Hillary, and Comey refused to prosecute her for blatant “pay to play” cash donations to the Clinton Foundation??

    4) Meanwhile, Comey has been passively feeding attacks on President Trump for alleged collusion with Russia, despite 10 months without a shred of evidence?? Moreover that Christopher Steele “dossier” is so ugly & sleazy & flagrantly dishonest. Any CIA Asset who presented such poorly investigated findings would be out on the street looking for a job.

    5) So Comey ignored a MOUNTAIN of evidence against his brother Peter Comey’s legal client, Hillary Clinton — and HER profiteering off federal lands, but he attacks the President of the United States WITH NO EVIDENCE AT ALL???

    6) Oh yes, and how’s that criminal investigation of Seth Rich’s murder coming along?? It’s now confirmed he’s the HERO WHISTLEBLOWER who delivered the DNC emails to WIKILEAKS. He was returning from an FBI meeting when he was shot. Funny how those robbers took NO CASH, NO WALLET, NO WATCH, NO CELL PHONE. Seth Rich deserves the full weight of the law as to who took his life!

    Those are 6 Exccellent reasons why Comey deserved to be fired. The time has come to appoint a Special Prosecutor alright. A Special Prosecutor against Hillary Clinton.

      I’d like to copy and paste this in every ridiculous comment on every message board. However, it no longer matters. It is all about feeding the narrative. Sad.

      • David Daisy May Boldock

        Everything is changing. People are taking their comedians seriously and the politicians as a joke.

        • Steve

          David, Yes. That has been changing for 20 years now. And… it is their own fault.

          • David Daisy May Boldock

            Politics is supposed to be the second-oldest profession. I have come to realise that it bears a very close resemblance to the first.

      • Susan Lindauer

        by the way, there’s a mountain of evidence against Rep. Adam Schiff, who benefited from a major campaign fundraiser hosted by a UKRAINIAN ARMS DEALER. All around Democrats are screaming about the Republicans to avoid exposure of their own crimes.

        • Brian Rieben

          Both sides do it Susan. It is a broken system. If you think one side is squeaky clean then you are naive. Both sides are corrupt AF.

    • David Daisy May Boldock

      Bad politicians are sent to Washington by good people who don’t vote.

      • Brian Rieben

        Its sad that this country has so many people who don’t care…

        • David Daisy May Boldock

          I concur Brian. The greatest obstacle to those is complacency.

    • Greg Kaz

      Crooked Hillary is crooked but she is not the president. Russian accusations aside, Trump has his own glaring conflicts of interest. I’m not defending Clinton at all but if you are going to battle corruption, it cannot be a partisan attack. The people on both the left and the right need to realize that we have no power when we play those games, we must remove the D and the R in front of their names and call b.s. what it is whenever we see it, not just when the other team does it.

      • Susan Lindauer

        There’s no evidence that Trump’s corrupt. Ten months of investigation has not produced a SHRED OF EVIDENCE against Trump. Zero. Nada. There’s a whole TRASH HEAP of evidence that top DEMOCRATS are corrupt & work together as a group to execute that corruption.

        Democrats are furious they got busted by WIKILEAKS. Are they apologizing to us?
        Hell No, they’re not ashamed of their corruption. They’re enraged that voters discovered it, and aren’t stupid enough to allow them to continue it. Democrats demand voters apologize to them!

        Hell will freeze over first!

        • Brian Rieben

          You play the game of politics and advance high int he rankings…then somewhere along the way there is corruption or bribes being taken. There is too much money and temptation that floats around. Both parties are terrible with it. The end goal for these politicians is how can I make more money. Hopefully there was no Russian interference. However there is plenty more why Trump and the likes of him need to be removed from Washington.

      • bartleyc

        Another loony left trying to start a rumor, Hillary should be in jail. if you have something on Trump, spit it out. If you say anything about Hillary the Cock Roaches will run out and lie to cover her corrupt ass

        • Greg Kaz

          Ok sure, call me whatever names you want…

          But are you so enthralled with your hatred of Hillary that you cannot even focus on other issues?

          The ex-soviet “flight money” connected to the financing of many of Trump’s properties, the sale of a Florida mansion for much more than the appraised value, the deutsche bank connection. Do you really just not care or does it only matter if it’s the other side?

        • Greg Kaz

          And that’s not even touching on the fact that he is blatantly using the office to profit for himself and his family.

    Most of the people in the highest offices of the land are wanton criminals protected by their powerful positions in which they serve the interests of leaders of such institutions as the Council on Foreign Relations and the American Enterprise Institute. After they are through playing politics on behalf of their patrons they are paid off as lobbyists or “book authors” or “speech givers” like the Clinton who have been paid $150,000,000 for their wise words. For details of the Clinton’s crimes, read the books, “Compromised” by Terry Reed and “The Boys on the Tracks” by Mara Leveritt. As for Vince Foster…

    Vince Foster was murdered by or on behalf of the Clinton Administration because he was the Clintons’ private attorney, because they were dirty as mud on Whitewater, Madison Guaranty, and Capital Management Services; and because he had a genuine conscience that would spell trouble for the Clintons. Days before his murder Foster was busy trying to find another attorney to take over as their private attorney. The evidence strongly suggests that the murder was done with the knowledge and participation of Bill Clinton, who fired FBI Chief William Sessions July 19, 1993, the day before the murder so that the FBI was decapitated and put under the control of Sessions’ nemesis, Clinton-toady Floyd I Clarke, then denied jurisdiction over the case, which went to the U.S. Park Police which the White House controlled completely. The White House lied to the media that Sessions was fired because he refused to resign; Sessions was perfectly willing to resign provided he could stay on until another permanent appointment was made, but Clinton wanted to demobilize the FBI, and did so.

    As shown by Christopher Ruddy’s book, “The Strange Death of Vincent Foster,” Foster almost certainly poisoned or killed by injection, then shot in the head with a 1917 “throw-away” Colt revolver made from parts of several guns. His body was wrapped in a carpet, then driven in a car to Ft. Marcy Park where it was dumped in front of the first of two cannons, then later moved to the other cannon to foul forensic analysis. The powder
    burns on Foster’s hands were incompatible with suicide; there was no significant bleeding from his mouth, also incompatible with suicide because the heart continues pumping 30+ seconds after a gunshot to the brain; his shoes bore no grass or gravel/dirt marks from the path to where he was found, an impossibility but for being dumped there. Eyewitnesses were bulled, ignored, threatened or cajoled into supporting the Official Story. Both the initial Fiske Report and that by Kenneth Starr were blatant political cover-ups designed to conceal how Clinton staff lied about when they learned of the death and when they illegally entered Foster’s office and stripped it of evidence. They were such a fraud that U.S. Attorney Miquel Rodriguez resigned from the task force because, “As an ethical person, I don’t believe I could be involved with what they were doing.” (p.216).

    Perhaps most intriguing for newcomers to Federal State Crimes and Cover-up is Chris Ruddy’s first-hand eyewitness account to how the inconvenient witness Patrick Knowlton had a dozen or more federal agents besiege him in public by walking toward him in a furious threatening manner and then abruptly turning aside at the last moment—done both to intimidate him and make him look like a nutcase were he to report this at his grand jury testimony the following day.

    Our political system is badly, probably incorrigibly, broken. It is a thinly disguised Banana Republic.

    Hillary Clinton is a criminal why is she not in jail?
