Donald Trump called the death of former Clinton White House aide Vince Foster “very fishy” and labeled theories that it was something other than a suicide “very serious,” in an interview last week with The Washington Post.

Foster served as deputy counsel to President Bill Clinton and was previously a partner and close colleague of Hillary Clinton’s at the Rose Law Firm in Little Rock, Ark. A federal investigation ruled that he took his own life in Fort Marcy Park in Northern Virginia in 1993, but some Clinton opponents have theorized that the Clintons were behind his death.

In the Post interview, Trump did not dismiss those theories but said that he will not talk about them publicly because he does not know enough about the case.

“He had intimate knowledge of what was going on,” Trump told the Post. “He knew everything that was going on, and then all of a sudden he committed suicide.” (VIDEO: Trump Posts Audio Of Bill’s Alleged Victims Online)

“I don’t bring [Foster’s death] up because I don’t know enough to really discuss it,” he said. “I will say there are people who continue to bring it up because they think it was absolutely a murder. I don’t do that because I don’t think it’s fair.”
