(MSNBC) Vince Foster’s sister on Thursday condemned Donald Trump for bringing up a discredited conspiracy theory regarding her brother’s suicide, calling the GOP nominee’s remarks “beyond contempt.”
Trump in a recent interview with The Washington Post referenced the widely debunked theory that Foster, a former White House aide to President Bill Clinton, was actually murdered. Trump called circumstances of Foster’s 1993 death “very fishy.”
“In this interview, Trump cynically, crassly and recklessly insinuated that my brother, Vincent W. Foster Jr., may have been murdered because ‘he had intimate knowledge of what was going on’ and that Hillary Clinton may have somehow played a role in Vince’s death,” Foster’s sister, Sheila Foster Anthony, said in an op-ed published in The Post Thursday.
