Former Special Counsel Ken Starr reportedly left out a shocking finding that Hillary Clinton “triggered” the suicide of Vince Foster in his final FBI report.
Foster was President Bill Clinton’s deputy White House counsel.
Writing in the Daily Mail, author Ronald Kessler revealed that Starr made the admission to him in person at the 2019 Annapolis Book Festival last weekend.
“At a reception for authors participating in the 2019 Annapolis Book Festival last weekend, I asked Starr why he omitted the damaging FBI finding,” Kessler writes. “At first, he beat around the bush, citing well-established facts indicating that Foster was already depressed before Hillary lashed into him at the White House meeting.”
He continues: “But when pressed, Starr admitted he 'did not want to inflict further pain' on Hillary by revealing that her humiliation of Foster a week before he took his own life pushed him over the edge.”
In his book, “The First Family Detail,” Kessler also spoke to FBI agents who actually worked the case.
The alleged “final straw” for Foster came during a meeting in which Hillary Clinton allegedly berated and humiliated him in front of an entire room of colleagues.
“Hillary put him down really, really bad in a pretty good-size meeting,” Coy Copeland, Starr’s senior investigator, said. “She told him he didn't get the picture, and he would always be a little hick town lawyer who was obviously not ready for the big time.”
FBI supervisory agent Jim Clemente also told Kessler that Foster was very depressed, but “Hillary lambasting him was the final straw because she publicly embarrassed him in front of others.”
“Hillary blamed him for failed nominations, claimed he had not vetted them properly, and said in front of his White House colleagues, ‘You're not protecting us’ and ‘You have failed us,’” Clemente added. “That was the final blow.”
Hillary Clinton has not commented on the report.
