FBI Agent David Raynor Murdered Ahead of Clinton Testimony-Reported as Fiction!
Summary of eRumor:
FBI Agent David Raynor was murdered with his own service weapon days before he was scheduled to testify against Hillary Clinton.
FBI Special Agent David Raynor died in March 2018 in what the FBI calls a murder-suicide. Raynor’s death wasn’t related to his work with the bureau, and he was not scheduled to testify against Hillary Clinton.
That rumor appears to have started with NeonNettle.com. The website, which states that its content is presented “as is” and “with all faults,” doesn’t have a high level of credibility. Appearing under the headline, “FBI Agent Who Exposed Hillary Clinton Cover-up Found Dead,” this particular story reported that Raynor was scheduled to testify about the extent of Hillary Clinton and President Obama’s cover-up of the Fast and Furious scandal.
Neon Nettle deleted the story within days of publication, but not before the Wayback Machine captured a screen grab of it. The report has since been repeated in the echo chamber of fringe, conspiracy-minded websites But, again, there’s been no indication that it’s true.
Police told ABC News that FBI Special Agent Raynor and his estranged wife were found dead in a murder-suicide in Crownsville, Maryland, in March 2018. Officers responded to the scene after a woman reported being threatened by her estranged husband, Anne Arundel County Police said:
Upon arrival, police found David Raynor, 52, with multiple stab wounds and an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound. Donna Fisher, 54, was found with apparent stab wounds. Both were pronounced dead at the scene.
Raynor joined the FBI in 1996 and had worked at the bureau’s Baltimore field office since 2003, law enforcement officials familiar with the investigation tell CBS News. These officials say this was a domestic situation, and not related to any case Raynor was working on.
There’s no indication that Raynor investigated or worked on any case related to the Clintons, or Fast and Furious. This story is part of the long-running Clinton Body Count conspiracy theory that the Clintons have systematically murdered political opponents and foes over the years. Any death of FBI agents that appear in the news are swept up in the conspiracy theory at this point.
