This week, a British tabloid claimed to be in possession of evidence that an MI6 spy found dead six years ago inside a carryall bag in his bathtub had just before his death obtained confidential information regarding former U.S. President Bill Clinton.
Gareth Williams had obtained a guest list for an event Clinton was due to attend, and did so while working with the United States’ National Security Agency in a joint operation, the article asserted.
“The Clinton diary hack came at a time when Williams’ work with America was of the most sensitive nature,” an undisclosed source told The Sun. “It was a diplomatic nightmare for Sire John Sawyers, the new director of MI6 at the time.”
The tabloid paper also stated that voicemail messages Williams left for his friends and family members were deleted immediately afterward. His apartment was ransacked by someone who seemed intent on destroying evidence. It was also steam cleaned.
The mysterious nature of the death has brewed conspiracy theories for some time now, but with this new information, many believe the Clintons were somehow involved.
Perhaps the most bizarre thing about the case is that the Metropolitan Police ruled the death as an “accident” despite an initial investigation concluding it was “unnatural and likely to have been criminally mediated.”
What do you think of this new revelation?
