Donald Trump Jr. drew the ire of Clinton supporters on Saturday when he hinted at an old conspiracy theory involving the death of a former staffer to former President Bill Clinton.
Trump Jr. retweeted a tweet from conservative author Dinesh D’Souza in which he pointed out that former Democrat National Committee chair Donna Brazile said in her new book that she was afraid for her life after DNC staffer Seth Rich was murdered.
“Donna Brazile feared for her life for crossing the Clintons you know you are dealing with an unscrupulous gang of thugs,” he wrote.

“I assume she was very fearful of involuntary suicide???” Trump Jr. replied.

The tweet is a veiled reference to the death for Vince Foster, who police said killed himself in 1993. A finding that was corroborated by a federal investigation into his death.
Conspiracy theorists believe that Foster was killed by the Clintons in order to silence him because he knew too much about them.
The tweet was not appreciated by supporters of the former president and his wife, Hillary Clinton.
When the president’s son implying that his father’s former opponent is a murderer is, like, the ninth-worst thing to happen today… https://t.co/B8WCJOi58n

The GOP conspiracy-industrial-complex has hit it’s g-spot.
They’re accusing Hillary Clinton of having people killed. https://t.co/jClNHSW4zl

You are just a horrible hateful person for saying something like that. Perpetuating vicious lies. https://t.co/Z604knf9Yy

So she didn’t buy the armed robbery of Seth Rich either? Hum?

I truly believe we all need to pray for Donna Brazile’s safety. Too many people who crossed the Clinton’s over the years were found dead.
