FBI investigators claim that verbal abuse from Hillary Clinton drove Vince Foster, a former White House aide to President Bill Clinton, to commit suicide in 1993.
“In interviews for my book The First Family Detail, the FBI agents revealed the truth about Foster’s death on July 20, 1993 when he shot himself at Fort Marcy Park along the Potomac River,” author Ronald Kessler wrote for the Daily Mail Thursday.
Kessler states that former FBI agents Coy Copeland and Jim Clemente — while contributing to “independent counsel Kenneth W. Starr’s probe of the Clintons’ investments in the Whitewater real estate development” — discovered a private meeting then-First Lady Hillary held with White House aides, one week before Foster’s suicide.
The meeting was held to discuss Hillary’s proposed health care legislation and she began verbally abusing Foster when he disagreed with her.
“Hillary put him down really, really bad in a pretty good-size meeting,” Agent Copeland told Kessler. “She told him he didn’t get the picture, and he would always be a little hick town lawyer who was obviously not ready for the big time.”
Agent Clemente also told Kessler that Hillary went so far as blaming Foster “for failed nominations, claimed he had not vetted them properly, and said in front of his White House colleagues, ‘You’re not protecting us’ and ‘You have failed us’.” (RELATED: 17 Reasons Why Hillary Shouldn’t Be Elected President)
Both agents stated Foster’s friends and family confirmed he was suffering from depression leading up to his death but believe that meeting “was the final blow.”
“Foster was profoundly depressed, but Hillary lambasting him was the final straw because she publicly embarrassed him in front of others,” said Clemente.
Additionally, Kessler notes that the meeting Copeland and Clemente described was omitted from Starr’s final, 38,000 word report.
Recently, presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump has launched attacks against Clinton’s alleged roles in several scandals, including Foster’s death. (RELATED: Trump Labels Death Of Former White House Aide Vince Foster ‘Very Fishy’)
Back in May, Trump said he doesn’t “know enough to really discuss” Foster’s “very fishy” death.
