Through my extensive research, I collected clear evidence that a dishonest, money-grubbing cabal of disingenuous Clinton-haters—who shared information, covered up each others mistakes, outright fabricated evidence, and received their funding from the same source—had conspired to portray Fosters untimely suicide as a murder in a cynical effort to undermine the authority and the authenticity of the Clinton White House.It was then that I realized what the President had been up against since his first inauguration in 1993: His political enemies were prepared to do anything—and use anything—to remove him from office. . . .Essentially, Vincent Fosters death beget a series of false statements from a top law-enforcement official about Whitewater, which beget the renewed bad journalism about Whitewater, which beget the entry of the Presidents most vicious enemies into the Whitewater frenzy, which beget the appointment of Robert Fiske as the independent counsel, which beget Fiskes interim report absolving the President and Mrs. Clinton from any criminal behavior during Whitewater, which beget an investigation of Fiskes work by the Senate Banking Committee (and later the Senates Special Committee on Whitewater, as well as an assortment of U.S. House committee investigations), which beget the firing of Fiske, which beget the appointment of Kenneth Starr, which beget Starrs failure to find evidence of criminal intent during the Whitewater matter by the President, which beget a desperate effort by Starr to get the President on anything, which beget the Monica Lewinsky investigation and a national soap opera that threatened to destroy the Clinton Presidency. . . .In order to understand today’s rough-and-tumble, go-for-the-throat political atmosphere, one has to understand the investigations of the death of Vincent Foster.This is that story.
