Vince Foster Scandal
Vince Foster, a childhood friend of Bill Clinton who worked closely with Hillary in the 70’s, joined the Clinton administration as deputy White House counsel. In July of 1993, he was found dead in his Virginia Park home from a single gunshot wound, with official reports labeling it a suicide. However, many close to Foster cited the Travelgate controversy as a trigger for Foster’s worsening depression. Staffers also recall another incident, a week before Foster’s death, in which Hillary openly ridiculed Foster in a White House meeting. Others speculate that Foster simply ‘knew too much’ about the Clinton’s operations, as he wrote in a suicide note: “The public will never believe the innocence of the Clintons and their loyal staff… [I]n Washington… ruining people is considered sport.”
Just a few months after Bill Clinton entered the White House, the well-known Travelgate scandal ensued. In the spring of 1993, seven White House employees were fired for questionable accounting practices. Apparently Hillary knew all about the firings way before they actually occurred, and may well have played a part in them. It’s alleged that the firings were meant to cover up questionable resource allocation and other ‘favors’ from within the White House Travel Office, with which Hillary was directly involved.
