Does anyone else find the circumstances and timing in which Jon Ashe died a little too convenient?
Conspiracy theory or not, it’s understandable to see how people would start connecting the dots that were left in the wake of this whole situation and it’s possible connection to Hillary Clinton.
As has been widely reported, former head of the U.N. General Assembly John Ashe died Wednesday afternoon at his home in the village of Dobbs Ferry in Westchester County, New York.
According to The NY Post:
The death by barbell of disgraced UN official John Ashe could become a bigger obsession for conspiracy theorists than Vince Foster’s 1993 suicide.
Ashe — who was facing trial for tax fraud — died Wednesday afternoon in his house in Westchester County. The UN said he’d had a heart attack. But the local Dobbs Ferry police said Thursday that his throat had been crushed, presumably by a barbell he dropped while pumping iron.
Ashe was due in court Monday with his Chinese businessman co-defendant Ng Lap Seng, who is charged with smuggling $4.5 million into the US since 2013 and lying that it was to buy art and casino chips.
Ng was identified in a 1998 Senate report as the source of hundreds of thousands of dollars illegally funneled through an Arkansas restaurant owner, Charlie Trie, to the Democratic National Committee during the Clinton administration. (Ng was not charged with any crime.)
Ng and Trie had visited the White House several times for Democratic fund-raising events and were photographed with then-President Bill Clinton and First Lady Hillary Clinton.
One source told me, “During the trial, the prosecutors would have linked Ashe to the Clinton bagman Ng. It would have been very embarrassing. His death was conveniently timed.”
Ashe’s lawyer Jeremy Schneider told me he is sure Ashe’s death was an accident. “There is not one iota of evidence that it was homicide. This is nothing at all like Vince Foster.”
Police in Dobbs Ferry village are keeping the investigation open pending an autopsy by the Westchester medical examiner.
Although some may dismiss this as conspiracy theory fodder, one should question why so much “drama” constantly seems to surround Hillary Clinton.
What we do know, and this can’t be written off as “conspiracy theory,” is that four Americans died on her watch in Benghazi in 2012 when she was secretary of state and that she still won’t cooperate fully by releasing all her emails. I don’t put anything past her.
Does this sound like someone who should be trusted in the White House?
