A Texas congressman said President Bill Clinton intimidated the government’s lead lawyer into not seeking an indictment of Hillary Clinton by telling her, "We killed Vince Foster." [snip]
That's what Rep. Pete Olson said in a June 9, 2017, interview on the Houston-based Sam Malone Show. [snip]
"I guarantee you," Olson said, "they had the conversation where he basically said, ‘Mrs. Lynch, call your attack dog off. We’ve killed people. We killed Vince Foster. We destroyed Webb Hubbell. We will destroy you.’ And then what happens to things?," Olson said. "All of a sudden--well, she did it, yeah, it was all terrible, don’t know who got the information, very classified. But no indictment."This is a United States Congressman from the 22nd District in Tex-ass spreading the most vile lies, lies that stoke the anger and fears of pea- brained mouthbreathers who need very little triggering to pull off an act of violence (see Comet Ping Pong).
Unfortunately, Olson is emblematic of many Republicans in office today, people who 50 years ago might have been shunned by polite society, but are now, despite (or more likely because of) their crackpottery, officeholders. This loon happens to be a 4- term elected Representative, and is well within the mainstream of an ultra- radical Republican Party. What a disgrace.
(P.S., we don't give a hot damn if he later "walked back" his statement.)
