Former Attorney General Dies Just One Day Before Presidential Election – Please Pray!

November 9, 2016 in News by Slad

Janet Reno was the first woman to serve as the United States Attorney General. Just a day before this historic presidential election, she has died at 78.

According to media reports, she died due to complications caused by Parkinson’s disease.

Her time in President Bill Clinton’s administration was surrounded by controversy and high-profile cases. Infamously, she ordered federal agents to raid the Branch Davidian compound in Waco, Texas where 80 cult members were killed.

In addition, she ordered the raid on Elian Gonzales, a 6-year old Cuban immigrant, who was captured in Miami and returned to his father in Cuba.

As the USA Today reported:

Reno’s tenure also was marked by political furor, similar to the controversy that now shadows the Justice Department’s management of the Hillary Clinton email inquiry.

Sixteen years ago, Reno rejected a recommendation to appoint a special counsel to investigate the vice president’s campaign fundraising activities, a decision that infuriated Republicans and shadowed the general election campaign to its historically disputed end.

According to media reports at the time, Hillary Clinton may have privately given Reno the order to call the deadly order to invade the Waco compound:

Hillary Clinton pressured the late Vince Foster to resolve the 1993 Waco standoff in a move that led to the deaths of more than 80 men, women and children, former White House aide Linda Tripp charged in an interview Friday night.

Tripp also alleged that Monica Lewinsky was more of a victim of Bill Clinton’s sexual predations than the former White House intern has publicly acknowledged.

Appearing on CNN’s “Larry King Live,” Tripp suggested that Foster, at Mrs. Clinton’s direction, transmitted the order to move on the Branch Davidian’s Waco compound, which culminated in a military-style tear gas attack on the wooden structure.

The compound burst into flames hours later as federal troops used a U.S. Army tank to ram the building and insert flammable gas.

Tripp described Foster’s demeanor as “dignified, decent, caring, smart” during his early days at the White House. But when Waco happened, she said, “that’s when I first knew that Vince was falling apart.”

Foster was found shot to death in a Virginia park three months later.

Tripp said she was with the former deputy White House counsel when the news of the Waco assault broke on television.
