Donald Trump Jr. doesn’t care what the mainstream media thinks… and they can’t stand it.
There has been quite a mixed reaction to President Donald Trump’s firing of FBI Director James Comey, with people all across the political spectrum offering theories about it or making comparisons to other major political sackings in the past, even if there is only the slimmest of connections.
According to the Washington Examiner, one Twitter user with the handle Stock Monster tweeted, “President Clinton fired his FBI director on July 19th, 1993, The Day before Vince Foster was found dead in Marcy Park.”
That tweet was shared by Donald Trump Jr., the president’s eldest son, who has previously called Foster’s death “fishy,” then later un-shared, but not before the media were able to get in a shot at Trump Jr. regarding the post.
CNN wasted no time in reporting, “Donald Trump Jr. promoted a long-debunked, far-right conspiracy theory on Thursday by sharing a tweet that linked former President Bill Clinton’s firing of an FBI director to the death of his then-aide, Vince Foster.”
CNN proceeded to point out that “several investigations” had ruled Foster’s death a suicide, and while it is true that suicide was deemed the “official” cause of death, there have nevertheless been persistent rumors and theories suggesting that Foster knew too much about alleged misdeeds by the Clintons and was killed to prevent him from exposing them.
Of course, it is highly unlikely that anyone will ever know with total certainty all of the myriad details surrounding Foster’s untimely death, but one thing is pretty clear: There is at least as much evidence — if not more — supporting the theory that Foster was killed to prevent secrets from being exposed than there is supporting the notion that Trump colluded with the Russian government to steal the 2016 election from failed Democrat candidate Hillary Clinton.
In fact, just about everyone who has been made privy to inside intelligence and the current standing of multiple investigations into the matter — including several prominent Democrats — has stated at one point or another that there is literally no evidence supporting the allegation.
For the record, Business Insider reported that Bill Clinton fired FBI Director William Sessions in 1993 after receiving a lengthy report alleging numerous and severe ethical shortcomings on the part of Sessions.
Comey was reportedly fired by Trump for mishandling the investigation of Clinton’s email scandal and violating Justice Department procedures, among other things, making these two instances rather difficult to compare effectively.
