John Ashe Death Is Latest Anti-Clinton Conspiracy Theory (PHOTOS)

The death of United Nations official John Ashe is providing material for a new anti-Hillary Clinton conspiracy theory.

John Ashe was the former president of the United Nations General Assembly in 2013 and 2014.

John Ashe Death

The Westchester, New York medical examiner’s office said Ash died of injuries he suffered while lifting a barbell at his home. He died of “traumatic asphyxia” and suffered laryngeal fractures.

Initially U.N. spokesman Dan Thomas had told CNN that Ashe died of a heart attack, but he had erroneously based that information on a newspaper report from Antiqua and a statement from a former colleague.

An autopsy report will not be made available until 16 weeks after the death, according a June 22, 2016 report.

John Ashe Criminal Allegations

Ashe was indicted in October 2015 in a bribery scandal involving Chinese businessmen and bribes reportedly over $1 million.

Preet Bharara, U.S. attorney for Manhattan, said Ashe “sold himself and the global institution he led.” Bharara alleged that Ashe took more than $1 million in bribes and went on a luxury spending spree

Ashe reportedly used the money to buy Rolex watches, suits, a BMW, family vacation, and a private basketball court.

Prosecutors said Ashe committed tax fraud by under-reporting his income by over $1.2 million. Chinese businessman Ng Lap Seng, is accused of paying more than $500,000 in bribes to Ashe.

Prosecutors also allege that Ashe took over $800,000 in tribes from Chinese businessmen for business deals in Antigua. Then they say he shared that money with a former prime minister of Antigua.

An envoy from the Dominican Republic, Francis Lorenzo, was accused in the conspiracy. He pleaded guilty to bribery, conspiracy to commit bribery, money laundering, tax fraud and possessing illegal bank accounts.

Phony, Made Up Clinton Connection

Conspiracy theory sites alleged that Ashe was going to testify against Hillary Clinton the day he passed away. But that claim comes from someone named “Sorcha Faal,” who has regularly posted fake news online.

The same person behind the John Ashe story also made up the fake stories that President Obama was going to nuke the city of Charleston, and that an admiral was fired because he found out Obama bought a mansion in Dubai.

Clinton Death List Conspiracies

The story is the latest entry in a conspiracy theory from the 1990s often described as the “Clinton Body Count,” in which Bill and Hillary Clinton have been accused of killing their political rivals and enemies. The list has no basis in fact, and the deaths and their supposed connection to Clinton are at best incidental, and usually non-existent.

    Fortunately nobody trusts the utterly corrupt shills in the establishment media like this liar and know that Bill and Hillary Clinton are both lying criminals.
    Notice this lying turd says nothing about how Ng is a well known major donor to the Clintons. This shill just writes what he’s told to write. Any mention of significant facts like Ngs connection to the Clintons and the mysterious death by barbells of John Ashe before he was set to testify in a major case INVOLVING Ng would result in his loss of employment. Of course regtedsive, statist shills like these cretin are all too happy to write articles on behalf of Hillary Clinton calling anything related to her criminality a “conspiracy theory.”
