Twenty-five years ago today, Vincent Foster was found dead in a park. The man who wrote a government report about the death that is so riddled with inaccuracy and deception it would get any of us fired if we wrote it, is about to be put on the U.S. Supreme Court by Republicans, including the "non-establishment" Republican President Donald Trump.
In addition, when Brett Kavanaugh wrote the report, he had the benefit of an accurate analysis of the evidence because Hugh Sprunt delivered copies of his Citizen's Independent Report to Starr's Office of Independent Counsel before the Starr/Kavanaugh report was released in October of 1997. Also, before the Starr/Kavanaugh report was released, the Patrick Knowlton/John Clarke response to the Starr/Kavanaugh report was presented to the OIC, which offered a critical analysis of the Starr/Kavanaugh report. Starr asked the Federal Appellate Court judges who oversaw his office to suppress the Knowlton/Clark analysis, but the judges ordered it to be made public as an appendix to the Starr/Kavanaugh report. Moreover, during the next few years, the OIC saw Sprunt's analysis, including Sprunt's analysis of the Starr/Kavanaugh report, and additional analysis, used to dispute the Starr/Kavanaugh report in the federal courts in the context of my Freedom of Information Act lawsuit.
No changes were ever made to the original Starr/Kavanaugh report, and no corrections issued, despite all of the inaccuracy and deception it contains, as discussed in the documents cited above.
