"Nothing At All Like Vince Foster”

Somehow I missed this last month...
"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.)"
Richard Johnson reports for the New York Post on the death of former UN official John Ashe last month whose testimony, had he delivered it, may have implicated the Clintons in one or another form of criminal activity.

There are two apparently contradictory assertions as to the cause of Mr Ashe's death. According to the New York Post, the local medical examiner's office had stated that Mr Ashe died from...
"...traumatic asphyxia with laryngeal cartilage fractures while lifting barbell on bench..."
Whereas the New York Times insists that...
"United Nations officials said the cause of death was a heart attack."
Unfortunately neither the New York Post or the New York Times provide links to the sources for these claims, but it is interesting that the two claims conflict. You would think that the UN would simply have waited for the local medical officer's statement as to cause of death and then repeated that. If the unnamed officials at the UN had been asked before the local medical officer's statement had been released then you would think that they'd have said "we don't yet know". That they actually made an assertion of cause of death which differs from that of the medical officer's statement is suspicious.

That Mr Ashe's testimony may have posed yet another political problem for Hillary Clinton renders his death even more suspicious, though frankly not surprising. Der Rodham is clearly above the law and has been for decades.
