In a recent interview with The Washington Post, Trump called the circumstances of Vincent Foster’s death “very fishy.” 

“He had intimate knowledge of what was going on,” Trump said of Foster’s relationship with the Clintons. “He knew everything that was going on and then all of a sudden he committed suicide.” 

Foster, a longtime friend of the Clintons, was deputy White House counsel in the first few months of Clinton’s presidency. 

He was found dead from a gunshot wound to the mouth in July 1993. 

The three official investigations into Foster’s death concluded he committed suicide as he suffered from depression. But right-wing conspiracy theories swirled that the Clintons were involved in Foster’s death. 

“I don’t bring [Foster] up because I don’t know enough to really discuss it,” Trump added. “I will say there are people who continue to bring it up because they think it was absolutely a murder. I don’t do that because I don’t think it’s fair.”
