Hillary Clinton foundation charities refiling at least five annual tax returns, April 23, 2015, Errors in how they reported donations from foreign governments

 

 

From Reuters April 23, 2015.

“Exclusive: Clinton charities will refile tax returns, audit for other errors

Hillary Clinton’s family’s charities are refiling at least five annual tax returns after a Reuters review found errors in how they reported donations from governments, and said they may audit other Clinton Foundation returns in case of other errors.

The foundation and its list of donors have been under intense scrutiny in recent weeks. Republican critics say the foundation makes Clinton, who is seeking the Democratic presidential nomination in 2016, vulnerable to undue influence. Her campaign team calls these claims “absurd conspiracy theories.”

The charities’ errors generally take the form of under-reporting or over-reporting, by millions of dollars, donations from foreign governments, or in other instances omitting to break out government donations entirely when reporting revenue, the charities confirmed to Reuters.

The errors, which have not been previously reported, appear on the form 990s that all non-profit organizations must file annually with the Internal Revenue Service to maintain their tax-exempt status. A charity must show copies of the forms to anyone who wants to see them to understand how the charity raises and spends money.”

“For three years in a row beginning in 2010, the Clinton Foundation reported to the IRS that it received zero in funds from foreign and U.S. governments, a dramatic fall-off from the tens of millions of dollars in foreign government contributions reported in preceding years.

Those entries were errors, according to the foundation: several foreign governments continued to give tens of millions of dollars toward the foundation’s work on climate change and economic development through this three-year period. Those governments were identified on the foundation’s annually updated donor list, along with broad indications of how much each had cumulatively given since they began donating.”

If you make a deal with Hillary Clinton or the Clinton Foundation you likely are making a deal with the devil.

Christopher Ruddy, who wrote many hard hittings articles about the Clintons and Vincent Foster death, became friends with the Clintons in 2007.

The NewsMax business that Ruddy created, has no archives before 2007 despite many articles for many years about the Clintons.

Coincidence?

Here is some background.

From Citizen News April 17, 2015.

“Let’s review the history of NewsMax.

From ConWebWatch May 30, 2002.

“NewsMax has lost a lot of money. Nearly $11 million, in fact, since the site’s launch in 1998. NewsMax lost roughly $8.4 million of that in 2000 and 2001.”

“Richard Mellon Scaife has a stake in NewsMax. According to the prospectus, Scaife owns about 7.2 percent of NewsMax Media”

From Politico August 2, 2014.

“Ruddy and the late former New York City Mayor Ed Koch helped broker a July 2007 meeting with Scaife and the former president in the Clinton Foundation’s Harlem office, and Scaife donated more than $100,000 to the foundation. Still, Scaife raised eyebrows by praising Hillary Clinton during her 2008 campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination, and his Tribune-Review later endorsed her over Barack Obama ahead of the Pennsylvania primary.”

From Joseph Farah of WND March 27, 2012.

“Newsmax’s Chris Ruddy was once a very good friend of mine.

I thought I knew him well.”

“He began to write a series of penetrating articles about the mysterious death of Vincent Foster and was, in a matter of weeks, let go. Why? Because Murdoch had important business with the Clinton administration and didn’t need the headaches Ruddy was presenting him with.

For the next year or so, I did everything in my power to help Ruddy pursue that story and others involving the Clinton scandals. When the New York Times Magazine did a story about “The Clinton Haters,” Ruddy and I were in the middle of it. When Hillary Clinton talked about “the vast right-wing media conspiracy,” we were in the middle of it – along with a guy named Dick Scaife.

Unlike Ruddy and me, Scaife had money – lots of it. He soon hired Ruddy to pursue the Clinton scandals at his newspaper, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.

I warned Ruddy about Scaife. I never trusted him. I told Ruddy he would compromise his values if he went to work for Scaife. He didn’t listen.

Today, Dick Scaife and Chris Ruddy own Newsmax – some would suggest my competition.”

“The point is simple. There are many people today who are profiting from their allegedly “conservative” credentials. But some of them – like my old friend Chris Ruddy – have become part of the problem. They haven’t just “compromised,” they’ve gone over to the dark side. In fact, some of them are playing both sides against the middle in an indecent grasp to be part of the establishment.

I just thought you should know.”

Follow the money.

Sadly, moneyed interests control most of the “information” that used to be called journalism.

And the Clintons control lots of money and moneyed interests.”

“New York Times Left-Winger: Shun Corrupt Clinton

Bob Herbert, identified today by Fox News Channel as the most liberal columnist at the New York Times, is belatedly joining in on the anti-Clinton bandwagon. But his vehemence is making up for his tardiness.

Herbert writes today that the Democratic Party made “the equivalent of a pact with the devil” in supporting Clinton and “in the process it lost its bearings and maybe even its soul.”

“Now, with the stench of yet another scandal polluting the political atmosphere, some of Mr. Clinton’s closest associates and supporters are acknowledging what his enemies have argued for years – the man is so thoroughly corrupt it’s frightening.

From NewsWeek April 20, 2015.

“Hillary Clinton’s Big Benefactor Has Trade Links with Iran”

“Enemies of Hillary Clinton waiting to discredit her bid for the White House are likely to seize on news that one of the biggest benefactors to the Clinton Foundation has been trading with Iran and may be in breach of US sanctions imposed on the country.

Ukrainian oligarch Victor Pinchuk, 54, has courted the Clintons for at least nine years – in the United States, the Alps and Ukraine.

Earlier this year, he was confirmed as the largest individual contributor to the Clinton Foundation, whose aims include the creation of “economic opportunity and growth”. He also has links to the Tony Blair Foundation and represented its biggest single donor in 2013.

The fourth richest man in Ukraine, Pinchuk owns Interpipe Group, a Cyprus-incorporated manufacturer of seamless pipes used in oil and gas sectors.
Newsweek has seen declarations and documents from Ukraine that show a series of shipments from Interpipe to Iran in 2011 and 2012, including railway parts and products commonly used in the oil and gas sectors.

Among a number of high-value invoices for products related to rail or oil and gas, one shipment for $1.8m (1.7m) in May 2012 was for “seamless hot-worked steel pipes for pipelines” and destined for a city near the Caspian Sea.

Both the rail and oil and gas sectors are sanctioned by the US, which specifically prohibits any single invoice to the Iranian petrochemical industry worth more than $1m.

However, US sanctions laws are complex and, in certain areas, ill-defined. Interpipe may qualify for penalties due to the mere presence on American soil of North American Interpipe Inc, its United States subsidiary.

The US authorities can also penalise non-American companies with no base in the US at all which it judges to be working counter to its foreign policy, as happened to Zhuhai Zhenrong, a Chinese oil company, in 2012.

Being denied access to US markets and the US banking system could prove catastrophic to Interpipe, given that accountancy giant Ernst & Young has raised questions over its viability.

The person in charge of this list of non-US companies is the Secretary of State, who between 2009 to 2013 – the period during which Pinchuk’s company was trading with Iran – was Hillary Clinton.”

“New Book, ‘Clinton Cash,’ Questions Foreign Donations to Foundation”

“The book does not hit shelves until May 5, but already the Republican Rand Paul has called its findings “big news” that will “shock people” and make voters “question” the candidacy of Hillary Rodham Clinton.

“Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich,” by Peter Schweizer — a 186-page investigation of donations made to the Clinton Foundation by foreign entities — is proving the most anticipated and feared book of a presidential cycle still in its infancy.

The book, a copy of which was obtained by The New York Times, asserts that foreign entities who made payments to the Clinton Foundation and to Mr. Clinton through high speaking fees received favors from Mrs. Clinton’s State Department in return.

“We will see a pattern of financial transactions involving the Clintons that occurred contemporaneous with favorable U.S. policy decisions benefiting those providing the funds,” Mr. Schweizer writes.

We will probably never find out the truth about how Vincent Foster died in the first year of the Clinton Administration in 1993.

But we can find and reveal much of the truth about the Clintons.

We can stop Hillary Clinton from taking the White House again.

From WND July 15, 2005.

“For years, major media had painted Starr as a ruthless Republican partisan, a Christian fanatic consumed with moral outrage against the Clintons. Why, then, would Starr tell an influential Democrat operative that he wanted to socialize with the Clintons? And what was he doing chumming around with Democrat operatives in the first place?

The story revealed a side of Starr which mass media had carefully concealed during the five years he served as independent counsel. It gave us a glimpse of the real Ken Starr.”

“Rodriguez blew the whistle on Ken Starr in March 1995. But no one listened.

Starr hired Rodriguez in September 1994 to lead the grand jury investigation of Vincent Foster’s death. A Harvard Law School graduate with a keen interest in civil-rights cases, Rodriguez was, as NewsMax.com founder Christopher Ruddy wrote in “The Strange Death of Vincent Foster,” “a bohemian among law enforcement types – the only federal prosecutor who wore a pony-tail.”

“He had no ideological investment in the matter,” writes British journalist Ambrose Evans-Pritchard in “The Secret Life of Bill Clinton.” “Indeed, when he arrived from California with his ponytail, his earring, and his leather jackets, there were comments among the hard-liners that Kenneth Starr had gone too far in his efforts to recruit Democrats, liberals and ethnic minorities to his team.”

The hard-liners were wrong. Rodriguez turned out to be an unusually honest and courageous public servant. He resigned in protest after less than six months on the job, calling the Foster probe a sham. Major media refused to run his story. His career stopped dead. Rodriguez returned to his old job of assistant U.S. attorney in Sacramento, where he remains to this day.”

“Ken Starr hired Miquel Rodriguez as lead prosecutor for the Vincent Foster investigation in September 1994. Soon after, Rodriguez was told that he was expected to back up the conclusion of the earlier Fiske report – that Foster had committed suicide. Rodriguez refused. He insisted on conducting a real investigation. But the harder he tried, the more resistance he got from Starr’s team.”

“I was told what the result [of the Starr investigation] was going to be from the get-go,” Rodriguez later said in a taped conversation, posted to the Internet. “This is all so much nonsense – I knew the result before the investigation began, that’s why I left. I don’t do investigations to justify a result.”

“On July 15, 1997, Ken Starr reached his inevitable conclusion. He issued a statement saying, “Mr. Foster committed suicide by gunshot in Fort Marcy Park, Va., on July 20, 1993.””

“Hillary Clinton likewise displayed an obsession with Foster’s death, for reasons which have never been satisfactorily explained. The obstruction of any and all serious efforts to probe Foster’s death remained the highest priority of Hillary’s Shadow Team for years.”

As you may know, I have been resurrecting articles by Christopher Ruddy of Newsmax about the Vince Foster death and investigations.

Here is another.

From NewsMax July 1, 1999 via Mail-Archive.com.

Kenneth Starr – The Clintons’ Accomplice

Christopher Ruddy
July 1, 1999
NewsMax.com

The Independent Counsel law lapsed last night at midnight.
And Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr said the law should not
be re-authorized.

Obviously, Starr believes that, because his own investigation
was a waste of tens of millions of dollars, the Independent
Counsel law should be trashed.

The truth is that the Independent Counsel law is a good law.
When corruption has been rooted out in places like France and
Italy, it has usually been the result of an independent
magistrate — their version of our Independent Counsel.

We also know that when Independent Counsels like Donald
Schmalz and Daniel Pearson did their jobs, the Clintons were
in a high state of panic and used every possible means to
stop them. We know that Bill Clinton has been fearful of
another Independent Counsel being assigned to investigate
Chinagate, allegations that he took Chinese campaign cash
and gave away nuclear secrets.

The law should stay. It’s Ken Starr who must go. A weak,
pathetic character, he has more responsibility than any other
man in American history for the woe the Clintons have, and
will wreak, on America.
The Hubbell Deal

Just how pitiful Starr’s “prosecution” has been was
demonstrated this week when Webster Hubbell admitted to
committing a felony by misleading federal investigators,
and a misdemeanor by failing to pay taxes.

Any normal citizen would have been jailed and fined for such
crimes. Not Webster Hubbell. Under Starr’s plea agreement,
Hubbell will be on parole and serve no jail time. He won’t
even pay any fine or restitution.

Worse, Webb Hubbell still doesn’t have to cooperate with
Starr in his investigation of the Clintons. Hubbell
continues to insist, “… I have no knowledge of any
wrongdoing on behalf of the president or Mrs. Clinton.”

Starr’s failure to seek Hubbell’s cooperation — a basic
condition of granting a plea agreement — violates the most
fundamental procedures followed by federal prosecutors.
But flouting procedure is nothing new for Starr.

In December of 1994, when Hubbell admitted to having bilked
his clients at the Rose Law Firm and evading taxes, Starr
purposefully botched the plea agreement by not demanding
Hubbell’s cooperation. Starr’s actions so infuriated Starr’s
own trial attorney, Russell Hardin, that Hardin resigned.

Hardin was incensed that Starr planned on signing a plea
agreement without debriefing Hubbell as to what he knew and
how he would cooperate — a mandatory procedure for any plea
bargain.

This time around, Starr simply made no pretense he would seek
Hubbell’s cooperation.

Just two weeks ago, the New York Times reported that Kenneth
Starr had decided not to seek indictments against Bill and
Hillary Clinton for crimes they had committed related to
Whitewater or related scandals. It’s hard to get indictments
if no one will talk. It’s nearly impossible to get people
to talk, if the prosecutor doesn’t pressure them.

As any honest prosecutor on Starr’s staff will admit, Starr
had long ago decided not to indict the Clintons, or for
that matter, any White House official. Some believe Starr
actually cut a deal with the Clintons soon after coming
aboard.
Pet Worm

Ken Starr is Bill Clinton’s pet worm. Starr has played out a
role in the greatest Mutt and Jeff, Good Cop/Bad Cop routine
ever perpetrated on the American public.

Even good folks, who realize how bad the Clintons are, have
fallen victim to Starr’s charade, taken in by the propaganda
that Starr is the “tough, mean prosecutor” out to get the
President, just like James Carville says.

That’s simply a mirage, cooked up by the White House spin
machine.
What Nolanda Hill Told Me

Is it really possible that Bible-toting Ken Starr — arch
Republican, shirt-sleeve Christian, and Monica prosecutor
— is on the Clintons’ side?

Let me answer by relating this story:

As the long-time lover and business partner of Clinton
confidant Ron Brown, Nolanda Hill had intimate knowledge
of the inner workings of the Clinton White House.

As a result of Congressional complaints, Janet Reno was
forced to appoint an Independent Counsel to investigate
Brown, his business dealings with Nolanda Hill, Brown’s
son Michael, and several other people.

The Independent Counsel in this case was Daniel Pearson from
Miami. Unlike Starr, Pearson and his deputy were no one’s
patsies. Instead of using Starr’s delaying tactics, Pearson
had, within months, built a strong case against Brown,
Brown’s son, and Hill. Nolanda Hill told me they were going
to be indicted.

Then Brown made a desperate bid to save himself. Just weeks
before his death on April 6, 1996 Brown met with Clinton at
the White House and made it clear he was not going to take
the fall for an administration rampant with corruption.
Brown wanted Clinton to handle Pearson the same way the
White House had handled Starr.

Handled Starr?

Hill explained. Starr was appointed Independent Counsel
in August of 1994, after the three-judge panel decided not
to appoint Robert Fiske. The Clinton White House publicly
expressed outrage that Starr, a “partisan” Republican, had
been selected as Independent Counsel.

That’s the way the Clintons wanted the world to see it.

In fact, Hill told me, “when Starr was appointed, they were
opening champagne bottles in the White House, they were
celebrating.” According to Hill, Starr has actually been
on Janet Reno’s short list for the post of Special Counsel
at the time she picked Robert Fiske.

“They would never had put him on the short list if they were
worried about him,” she said.

In his meeting with Clinton, Brown knew that Starr was under
the White House’s thumb. He pleaded with Clinton to do the
same with Pearson by having Reno interfere in Pearson’s
probe, and by ordering Justice Department attorneys on
Pearson’s staff to back off.

Brown also asked Clinton to have the FBI obstruct the Pearson
probe by withholding critical information. Brown, Hill said,
was well aware that FBI agents were not working for Ken Starr
in his Whitewater probe but for Reno and the White House,
giving the Clinton Administration de facto control over
the Starr investigations

According to Hill, Clinton told Brown not to worry.
“I’ll take care of it,” Clinton said.

Just weeks later, Brown’s plane mysteriously crashed into
the side of a mountain in Yugoslavia and the Pearson probe
was closed.
Starr Betrayed the Country

Starr’s inquiry has continued. This August will mark Starr’s
fifth anniversary as Independent Counsel. During his five
years on the job, the public has received more than enough
information to evaluate his performance.

There are dozens of examples of how Starr has betrayed the
American people and his oath as an independent counsel.
To cite a few:

— During the time Starr was investigating the Clintons,
Starr was working for a company wholly owned by China’s
Peoples Liberation Army and notorious arms dealer
Wang Jun.

— Starr hired Mark Tuohey as his Washington deputy. Tuohey
is a liberal Democrat close to the Clinton White House who
even threw a party at his home for Janet Reno. (It came
as no surprise that when Tuohey left Starr’s office, he
joined Vinson & Elkins, the law firm representing the
Rose Law Firm before Starr’s office.)

— Starr trashed a fundamental principle of American
jurisprudence: equality before the law. Starr created
a new and bizarre standard for deciding when to issue
indictments. Under Starr’s new formulation, ordinary
citizens and lower-level officials needed little evidence
of wrongdoing to warrant an indictment. But Starr raised
the bar absurdly high for White House officials. Thus
Starr’s office could indict a banker in Arkansas, but
Hillary Clinton would not be indicted for the exact same
offenses. This is nothing less than a grant of titles
and nobility for government officials, which is expressly
prohibited by the Constitution and a major reason why we
fought the Revolutionary War.

— Miquel Rodriguez, Starr’s lead prosecutor in the case of
Vincent Foster, resigned rather than be part of a
cover-up. Starr’s out-and-out cover-up of Vince Foster’s
death began with his wholehearted acceptance of the report
issued by Robert Fiske. Key witnesses, such as several
Arkansas troopers who said they knew of Foster’s death
hours before the White House did, were never put before
a grand jury.

— Starr’s prosecution of the Lewinsky case was a wild
goose chase. He had no original jurisdiction to
investigate this matter, and only did so at Janet Reno’s
request. Starr waited nearly eight months to sign a
plea agreement with Monica. In essence, she never really
cooperated against the Clintons at all, claiming to this
day that Clinton “never told me to lie; no one offered me
a job …”

Still, some Starr fanatics argue that Starr did pursue the
Lewinsky matter and seek Clinton’s impeachment. I ask:
So what?

When the Lewinsky scandal broke, I accurately illustrated,
in the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, what would happen. Starr
would delay his scathing report on Lewinsky, which would be
so damaging to Clinton that it might even call for his
impeachment.

And Starr’s report was delayed and issued at the end of the
year, pushing the impeachment vote until after the elections
and saving Clinton again. Throughout the Lewinsky matter
it became clear that Starr was creating a diversion for
Clinton’s real crimes; Clinton would never be removed from
office over a sex scandal.

Most egregious of all was Starr’s mishandling of key
Whitewater witnesses David Hale and Jim McDougal. Hale
spent some 18 months in prison and was punished with huge
restitution demands — even though he was the chief
cooperating witness.

McDougal, who also cooperated, was sent to federal prison and
was apparently murdered when prison officials purposefully
withheld life-sustaining medications.

But convicted criminals like Webb Hubbell and former Arkansas
Governor Jim Guy Tucker, who both stubbornly refused to
cooperate, got off easy. Tucker never served one day in
prison.

If the guilty and unrepentant get off easy, what type of
prosecution is this. It’s not time to blame the Independent
Counsel Law; blame the prosecutor who wouldn’t do his job.
Because of Kenneth W. Starr’s complicity, the most corrupt
administration in the history of the country continues with
no end in sight. God save us all.”

Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.”…George Orwell, “1984”

 

 

From the Greensboro News Record April 18, 2015.

“Another poll has ranked the Greensboro-High Point metropolitan area as among the hungriest in the country.

Only this time, the Gallup poll commissioned by the Food Research and Action Center in 2014 ranks the area No. 1 for people who had difficulties securing food, based on a percentage of the total population.

North Carolina placed eighth overall, with Mississippi at the top of the rankings. Louisiana was second, followed by West Virginia.”

“Most of the area’s problems can be traced to 2007 when textile companies, furniture manufacturers and call centers began eliminating jobs. It’s a list that’s as daunting as it is distinguished and includes such companies as Cone Denim, American Express and Thomas Built Buses.”

“The poll asked a single question: Have there been times in the past 12 months when you did not have enough money to buy food that you or your family needed?

It was posed to hundreds of thousands of households across the country as part of the Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index.

The result: Americans in every community and state struggle to put food on the table.

Across the country, 17.2 percent of respondents reported food hardship — an indicator of hunger. It’s the lowest rate since Gallup began collecting this data in early 2008.

“The immediate response I had was, ‘Here’s our opportunity to take our biggest challenge and turn it into our biggest opportunity for innovation,’ ” said Marianne LeGreco, a communication studies professor at UNC-Greensboro who specializes in food policy and public health communication.

According to the Gallup poll, Greensboro-High Point is also the only metro area in the top 10 with more than 25 percent saying they had a food hardship.”

Hillary Clinton Vince Foster murder/suicide coverup, The strange death of Vincent Foster, Christopher Ruddy investigation, NewsMax articles resurrected by Citizen Wells, Scathing Foster investigation articles, Clintons’ reach extends?

 

I have been digging into the details of the Vincent Foster death in 1993  and subsequent coverups and botched investigations.

The amount of information on the internet is amazing and once again I am encountering important, damning articles that are no longer found at their origin.

I have resurrected 2 and they are presented below.

Also, in the true spirit of citizen journalism, one of the dedicated commenters here, oldsoldier79 recently presented a Cspan II video of a presentation of jounalist and author Christopher Ruddy who investigated the death of Vince Foster and subsequent inquiries. Ruddy then wrote “The Strange death of Vincent Foster.”

Christopher Ruddy founded NewsMax Media in 1998.

“‘Vince Foster’s Gun’ Serial Number Searched Before Death

When Vince Foster was found dead from an apparent gunshot wound to the head in 1993, the government was quick to write off the death as a suicide.

That sat well with Bill Clinton and Vince’s closest confidante, Hillary Rodham Clinton.

For years, detail after detail emerged questioning the official ruling.

Significant questions were raised about the unusual gun – a .38 Colt revolver made from the parts of three guns with two serial numbers – found conveniently in Vince’s hand.

The Park Police said one of the serial numbers indicated the gun was vintage 1913 – and had no pedigree.

Foster family members insisted neither Foster nor his father ever owned the old revolver.

Recently, a NewsMax.com reader named Craig Brinkley contacted us.

Curious about the gun, Brinkley had filed a Freedom of Information Act request with the FBI, asking details of requests on the gun’s serial numbers with the NCIC – the National Crime Information Center.

The NCIC keeps records of all law enforcment inquiries of serial numbers.

On March 23, 2001, the FBI responded to Brinkley’s request.

Serial number 356555, one of the numbers on the gun, was never searched, not by the FBI, the Park Police or by that “investigation” by Ken Starr.

Serial number 355055 was found on the frame of the gun. Brinkley believes that was the gun’s real nnumber.

That number was indeed searched by the Park Police, on the evening of Foster’s death, more exactly at 22:45 EDT on July 20, 1993.

Interestingly, searches were conducted on the same serial number no fewer than three times earlier that year, before Foster’s death, on March 3, March 7 and April 29.

Was someone checking to see that this gun had a “clean” predigree and was untraceable?

We called Marilyn Walton at the FBI’s Access Integrity Unit. She told us that the government does not disclose which law enforcement agencies requested a trace on the serial number. She said it could have been made by local or federal agencies who have access to the NCIC computer.

She noted that serial numbers are often duplicated, and usually when a request is made, it includes additional information, such as the gun’s make and model.

In all four cases no such information was entered, just the number. Walton added that many guns share similar serial numbers.

Is it a coincidence that in the year of Foster’s death, four searches were conducted on the serial number found on the old gun – none ever before or after?”

“Vince Foster: What the Media Won’t Tell You”

“Major media outlets reported Wednesday on the Supreme Court hearing of California lawyer Allan Favish’s case that government photographs of Vincent Foster’s death scene be released for public viewing. The media report that no fewer than five investigations have found that Foster committed suicide because he was depressed. But despite 10 years of denial by the major media, the Foster case has not “closed” – as the Supreme Court hearing Wednesday demonstrated.
The case won’t close because of the failure of authorities to make full disclosure – and to conduct a full investigation into the case, including a complete autopsy.

Vince Foster was not only deputy White House counsel but also the personal attorney to Bill and Hillary Clinton.

On the night of Foster’s death, top Clinton aides made a frantic effort to enter and remove documents from his West Wing office. In the days that followed, federal investigators were stymied in their investigation of Foster’s office and strange death.

Since Foster’s July 1993 death, the facts of his death have been obfuscated by friends of Bill and Hillary in the major media, but here’s the undeniable truth:

There weren’t “five” investigations into Foster’s death, as the media report. The Park Police, best known for their meter and horse patrols around Washington, were put in charge of the initial death inquiry of the most important federal official to die suspiciously since President Kennedy. The Park Police, contradicting standard procedure, declared the death a suicide before launching their inquiry.

The FBI never officially investigated the case but simply signed off on the Park Police “probe.” The bureau had little choice. The day before Foster’s death, Bill Clinton hurriedly fired the director of the FBI, William Sessions. Sessions later charged that Clinton had “politicized” the bureau.

Later, Robert Fiske, selected by Clinton’s counsel Bernie Nussbaum and Janet Reno, quickly confirmed the Park Police probe as a suicide.

But when Ken Starr entered the investigation, he reopened the case. His chief prosecutor in the case, Miquel Rodriguez, later quit the Starr investigation, claiming that Starr’s staff was engaging in a cover-up of Foster’s death.

Rodriguez, a Harvard-educated federal prosecutor, argued that one of the Polaroid photos taken of Foster at the crime scene indicated an additional wound on Foster’s neck – never noted on the autopsy report. Favish’s suit before the Supreme Court is seeking to release this photo, among others.

No fewer than three of the paramedics on the scene indicated in reports or testimony that the crime scene was consistent with a murder scene, not a suicide.

A careful FBI microscopic investigation of Foster’s shoes found not a trace of soil or grass stains on them, though he supposedly walked several hundred yards through wooded Fort Marcy Park to where his body was found. [Years later, Starr’s investigation found plenty of soil and grass stains. Rodriguez charged that the shoes were tampered with to produce such “evidence.”]

Foster was found with little blood around his body – and despite claims that he fired the gun into his mouth, practically no blood was found on the front of his shirt.

Foster was found with a 1913 revolver no one in his family could claim, with two serial numbers, made from the parts of three or more guns. None of Foster’s fingerprints were found on the gun.

The bullet that supposedly killed Foster was never found, despite intensive searches.

Despite claims to the contrary, no one who knew Foster, including Hillary, Web Hubbell and his own wife, saw signs of depression.

A so-called suicide note was found in an office briefcase that had been searched and found to be empty after Foster’s death. The note was torn into 27 pieces. Yet an FBI examination found no trace of Foster’s fingerprints on the note and a top Oxford handwriting expert found the note to be an “obvious” forgery.

Despite the enormity of the case, Foster’s autopsy lasted an astounding 45 minutes. The coroner in the case had previously been overruled in other cases he declared “suicides” that were later found to be murders.

All of the X-rays taken during the autopsy are missing.

Complete crime scene photos don’t exist. The Park Police said all the photos were “accidentally” overexposed. A series of close-up Polaroids, which Favish is suing for, remain. This is just a brief summary of the dozens of inconsistencies in the case. Two New York homicide investigators who looked into the case concluded that Foster’s body had been moved to the crime scene and that murder could not be ruled out.

Despite overwhelming evidence of a cover-up, the media won’t question the official ruling.

Ken Starr, who could find no criminal wrongdoing on the part of the Clintons during his “intensive” probe, confirmed a ruling of suicide. Starr even hired O.J. Simpson’s defense expert to prove his case.

If ever there were a case for public disclosure of government records and photos, it’s the Vince Foster case. The high court should decide in Allan Favish’s favor.”

It appears that NewsMax’ archives only go back to 2007.

Is that the reason that these 2 articles can’t be found there?

Who made the decision for a news site to only keep articles from 2007 on?

Why?

Is there another reason?

More to come
