File this under “things that make you go ‘hmmmm…'” On Sunday, an article at the New York Post said the untimely death of disgraced UN official John Ashe was “conveniently timed.”
According to the Post:
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.
The “death by barbell” scenario is interesting enough, but there’s more — much more:
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.)
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.”
Those who want to say this could be another “Vince Foster” situation, however, may be disappointed.
“There is not one iota of evidence that it was homicide. This is nothing at all like Vince Foster,” Ashe’s lawyer Jeremy Schneider told Richard Johnson.
Still, it’ll be enough to keep some people wondering…
After all, people connected to the Clintons have a funny way of dying…
