Esteemed investigative reporter Ronald Kessler, who worked in that capacity for such papers as The Washington Post and The Wall Street Journal, and who has authored several bestselling “insider” books, including The First Family Detail: Secret Service Agents Reveal the Hidden Lives of the Presidents and The Secrets of the FBI, is reporting, in an exclusive for the Daily Mail Online, that reports lodged by FBI agents as to the role Hillary Clinton’s cruel treatment of Vince Foster played in his death…are now missing.
You may recall that back when she was First Lady, Hillary Clinton was a staunch proponent of so-called “health care reform.” Well, back in July 1993, when Mrs. Clinton assembled Foster, who was deputy White House counsel at the time, and other aides for the purpose of discussing her own health care proposal, Foster cited a “legal objection” to said proposal during the meeting, which prompted Hillary to go into a tirade, according to reports. Citing information he received from former FBI agents Coy Copeland and Jim Clemente, Ronald Kessler says that Hillary “ridiculed” Foster “in front of his peers” at the meeting. At one point, according to former agent Clemente, Hillary said flatly to Foster, “You have failed us.”
A week later, Foster was found dead along the Potomac River, with a gunshot wound to the head. A .38 caliber revolver was in his hand when he was discovered.
According to his piece for the Daily Mail, Kessler traveled, on two separate occasions, to the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) in College Park, Md., for the purpose of accessing the reports of the agents who were responsible for investigating Foster’s death.
On each of his visits, Kessler was handed, by two different staff members, records that were purported to include the reports of the investigating FBI agents on the Clinton-Foster meeting at issue, but he found none of that information in the documents he was given.
Kessler followed up by filing a Freedom of Information request with the National Archives, and heard back from NARA’s public liaison, Martha Murphy, who informed Kessler, via email, that the “senior archivist” she dispatched to do a more careful and comprehensive review “examined all eight boxes but found no interviews by any investigator that detail either a 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.”
More to follow? We’ll see.
