Earlier this month, Republican Sugar Land U.S. Representative Pete Olson had to do some serious backpedalling after a number comments he made about the Clintons on public radio came back to bite him.

On June 9, Olson speculated on the air that former President Bill Clinton was involved in the death of White House aide Vincent Foster back in 1993, and threatened former Attorney General Loretta Lynch.

Conspiracy theories have swirled around Foster’s death for years, but every governmental department ruled the death a suicide, according to the Texas Tribune.

The threat to Lynch concerned the more recent investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email servers.

There is no evidence to prove the former president threatened Lynch in any way, or he was involved with Foster’s death.

When the Tribune asked him if he had any new evidence concerning the matter, Olson admitted in a statement he “took the accusations a step too far” and he “regret[s] my choice of words.”

The tone of the statement was unapologetic, however, further accusing the Clintons of causing “personal wreckage” during their tenure in office.
