GOP Rep. Boebert skewered for resurrecting “Clinton Crime Syndicate” conspiracy theory

Congresswoman Lauren Boebert (R-CO) seems to have never met a conspiracy theory that is too far removed from reality to suggest to her Twitter followers.

The gun-loving owner of the Rifle, Colorado Shooters Grill, Rep. Boebert reached back into the past to dig up her latest unlikely insinuation involving the death of an Alabama reporter best known for the scoop that former President Bill Clinton met with former Attorney General Loretta Lynch on the tarmac of an airport back in 2016.

Christopher Sign, the 45-year-old journalist whose story about the unseemly meeting of the former president with the Attorney General who was overseeing the investigation of his wife, then-presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was found dead in his home by Hoover, Alabama police on Saturday in an incident currently being investigated as an apparent suicide.

Congresswoman Boebert, however, was not content with accepting the reasoned judgment of local authorities on the scene and instead decided that Sign’s death fit the phony narrative that anyone crossing the Clintons gets put on a hit list and soon is found suspiciously dead.

It is a narrative that right-wing propaganda mongers have been peddling since 1993 when Deputy White House Counsel Vincent Foster was found dead in the midst of a controversy over the firing of employees in the White House travel office.

Multiple investigations confirmed that Foster’s death was a suicide, but the false trope continued to live on as a zombie lie in a right-wing media intent on attacking the Clintons at every opportunity.

Representative Boebert tapped into that aging line of attack with a tweet that speculated that Christopher Sign’s death was somehow engineered by the Clintons rather than being the suicide that police suspected.

The people who commented on Boebert’s post had a field day responding to her latest off-the-wall conspiracy theory.

This short sampling of many similar responses seems to suggest that Boebert may be purposefully posting these ludicrous and unproven accusations simply to “own the libs” and boost her own reputation among the GOP rabble who trade in these types of outlandish conspiracy theories on a daily basis.

Whatever her motivation, Congresswoman Boebert’s dissemination of such false partisan attacks should at the very least elicit a censure motion from her congressional colleagues.

It’s obvious that the people of her Colorado district deserve better than this. Let’s hope that they don’t make the same mistake twice.
