The ghost of Vince Foster rises once again. The very investigation that Trump was critical of years ago. Yet we hear that Judge Kavanaugh is one of the leading picks. Why would Trump anyway want to go to the D.C. court for a pick? Here we go:
Judge Brett Kavanaugh sits on the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. Several news articles, including those here, here, and here, mention him as a leading contender to be nominated by President Donald Trump to replace retiring justice Anthony Kennedy on the United States Supreme Court.
The nomination of Kavanaugh would be ironic, given candidate Trump’s disparaging comment about a death investigation in which Kavanaugh played a major role. On July 20, 1993, Hillary Clinton’s former law partner, and then deputy White House counsel for President Bill Clinton, Vincent Foster, was found dead in Virginia’s Fort Marcy Park.
The official U.S. government conclusion is that Foster committed suicide in the park. In May of 2016, candidate Trump stated that the circumstances of the death were “very fishy.” At the 2004 confirmation hearing for Kavanaugh, Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) stated: “Mr. Kavanaugh served in the Office of Independent Counsel under Judge Starr, where he conducted the office’s investigation into the death of former Deputy White House Counsel Vincent W. Foster, Jr.” A 1998 New York Times article also states that Kavanaugh “led the investigation into the death of the deputy White House counsel Vincent W. Foster Jr.”
After my lawsuit ended, documents were discovered in the National Archives that were written by Rodriguez, including a 31-page memorandum to his fellow prosecutors in the OIC dated December 9-29, 1994 on the subject of “November 29, 1994 Meeting Concerning Foster Death Matter And Supplemental Investigation Prior to Grand Jury.” The memorandum explains why the evidence does not support a conclusion of suicide in the park and states in its first paragraph that Kavanaugh was at the meeting. At pages 18-20 of the memorandum, Rodriguez states that he has seen two photographs of Foster’s neck that show a wound on the neck. The government’s official conclusion was that there was no wound on the neck. Rodriguez states that one of the photos was an autopsy photo, and the other was taken when Foster was in the park. As I stated in my AT article, Rodriguez’s memorandum:
… states that one of the Polaroid photos “clearly depicts a dark, burnt appearing, blood area on VF’s neck.” The memorandum states that Rodriguez was “confident” that this was caused by a stun-gun or Taser. The memorandum states that an autopsy photograph (not a Polaroid taken in the park) shows two puncture wounds on the right side of Foster’s neck, and that the District of Columbia Medical Examiner “observed the appearance of crater-like indentations on the right side of the neck.”
An article by Turley at Accuracy in Media cites an article at Turley’s website, which includes a link to an audio recording of the late Reed Irvine, founder of AIM, speaking with Kavanaugh about the Foster case. In the conversation, Kavanaugh does a poor job defending the OIC’s Foster investigation.
