Judge Orders Vince Foster Exhumed in Clinton Murder Investigation-Fiction!

Summary of eRumor:
A federal judge has approved GOP Congressman Trey Gowdy’s request to exhume the body of Vince Foster to determine if Bill and Hillary Clinton were involved in his death 23 years ago.
The Truth:
A federal judge has not ordered that Vince Foster’s remains to help determine if Bill and Clinton were behind his death.
Conspiracy theories the Bill and Hillary Clinton had Arkansas attorney and deputy White House counsel Vince Foster murdered in 1993 because he knew explosive information that would jeopardize the political careers of the Clintons and other world leaders. In 1994, Foster’s death was officially ruled a suicide by special counsel Robert Fiske Jr., the Washington Post reported at the time:

Special counsel Robert B. Fiske Jr. concluded that Foster’s death in Fort Marcy Park last July was a suicide. The Fiske investigation involved four lawyers, five physicians, seven FBI agents, approximately 125 witnesses; also DNA tests, microscopes and lasers. All that effort resolved many of the lingering mysteries surrounding Foster’s death. But the largest mystery remained:

Why did the stings of Washington life, endured by so many, prove fatal for Vincent W. Foster Jr.?

Fiske’s report tells the story of a man stretched until he broke. As simple – and as mysterious – as that. In the months since Foster’s body was found resting on a slope beside a Civil War cannon, the airwaves and printing presses have been filled with theories of conspiracy and intrigue. Rumors about his death shook the stock market and dogged the president. Foster came to be seen by many as the key to a vault of dark secrets about some of the most powerful people in the world.

Vince Foster, a childhood friend of President Clinton, reportedly suffered from depression and anxiety in his role as deputy White House counsel before his death in 1993. Friske’s report concluded that Foster “blamed himself’ for scrutiny the Clinton transition team faced, including accusations of elitism, corner cutting and incompetent screening. The report said that Foster considered retiring from the position in January 1993 but could not bare to face the embarrassment of returning to Arkansas a “failure.”
The FBI vault contains extensive documentation on the investigation into Vince Foster’s suicide. The bureau even appears to address specific questions that have fueled conspiracy theories, like the position of Foster’s body, the location of the gun in his hand, the lack of reports of gunfire, just to name a few. Those details have only seemed to fuel conspiracy theories that the Clintons murdered Vince Foster over the years — culminating in the most recent one that a federal judge has ordered the exhumation of Foster’s body to re-examine his cause and manner of death.
That report first appeared at The Last Line of Defense, a website that clearly states “all articles should be considered satirical,” and that it cites facts that “don’t necessarily exist.” The Vince Foster exhumation report, which appeared under the headline. “BREAKING: Trey Gowdy Just Had A Federal Judge Issue An Order To Exhume A Body,” definitely meets that criteria:

For the first time in history, a US Congressman has asked that a body be exhumed in connection with an investigation by a House intelligence committee. Judge Harmon Watson agreed to issue the order for a work crew in Fairfax, Virginia to exhume the body of Vince Foster for autopsy.

The order came just minutes after evidence turned up in the case of a murdered reporter who had an “if anything ever happens to me” letter delivered to his publication that implicated Hillary Clinton in a 23-year-old crime, which put it right around the time of Foster’s supposed “suicide.”

Foster’s body has already been removed from the ground and is currently being transferred to the Naval Hospital in Norfolk to undergo an autopsy to look for a very specific cause of death. That information is being kept a closely guarded secret for now by Gowdy and the other federal prosecutors, since only the killer would know.

The false report that Vince Foster’s body has been exhumed was quickly shared on social media more than 20,000 times. Many who read and shared the report didn’t realize that it came from a “satire” website that does not publish factual stories. There are no new developments into Vince Foster’s death — but that likely won’t stop new conspiracy theories.
