From documents obtained by Jesse Trentadue, it’s clear that Clinton Administration Deputy Attorney General Eric Holder and his DOJ team had conspired to squelch any investigation into the August, 1995 murder of Trentadue’s brother Kenneth. (1)
But the obvious question is WHY? And why kill Kenneth Trentadue at all? He was no more than a face in the crowd, hardly distinguished or distinguishable from tens of millions of others throughout the United States. What would move the Deputy Attorney General to animate resources of the United States Justice Department to make certain there would be no hearing, no investigation, no grand jury indictment, not the least question raised about his death?
Four months prior to Kenneth Trentadue’s murder the Oklahoma City bombing had taken place. Tim McVeigh and Terry Nichols were found guilty of the 168 deaths which occurred that day and McVeigh was eventually executed while Nichols was sentenced to life without parole.
Were the Department of Justice–and principally the FBI—to have had its way, these events would have put an end to the story of the Oklahoma City bombing.
But the wrongful death lawsuit which eventually yielded proof of Eric Holder’s role in the DOJ cover up of his brother’s death and years of Freedom of Information Act requests which wrenched documents from a tenacious and unwilling Department of Justice have finally led Jesse Trentadue to an unimaginable tale of government corruption, conspiracy and intrigue. (2)
And it all centers around the Oklahoma City bombing and the roles played by the FBI and Department of Justice in allowing it to go forward. McVeigh and Nichols had NOT acted alone as the federal government has insisted for 16 years. The pair had the help of a group of serial bank robbers and nazi-racists calling itself the Aryan Republican Army. And that group, along with countless other dangerous, neo Nazi organizations in the US had been infiltrated by informants reporting to the FBI.
Tragically for Kenneth Trentadue, he dramatically resembled a member of that group, right down to the dragon tattoo on his left forearm. And Jesse Trentadue is convinced his brother was killed that night in the Oklahoma City Federal Transfer Center because he had been mistaken for that man, Richard Lee Guthrie. In fact, Guthrie was ALSO found hanged in a Kentucky, county jail cell in 1996, apparently another case of “government assisted suicide!” (3)
And why did all of this have to be covered up at the highest levels of the United States government? Because a number of former members of the ARA might have possessed far too much information about the Oklahoma City bombing and the role of FBI informants in its execution.
In short, the FBI KNEW of the plan to blow up a federal building. It’s informants had stood by and watched the criminal ARA acquisition of funds used for the project. And now a young man had been killed in his jail cell, joining the hundreds of dead and injured in the Murrah building blast.
And prior Department of Justice knowledge of the events and plans leading up to this disaster could NOT be revealed to the American public.
Call it an FBI sting gone horribly wrong, dress it up any way you want, the fact remains law enforcement officials and bureaus of the federal government knew of this deadly scheme and did nothing to stop its execution! No amount of spin would set the Clinton Administration free of blame for such a deadly, inexcusable blunder.
So it had to be buried, right along with the victims of the explosion itself. And right along with Kenneth Trentadue, no doubt dead because he had been beaten in order to extract information about how much he knew–information known only to the man he so tragically resembled.
And the Clinton hired gun in charge of making sure none of this saw the light of day by covering up the fragile lynchpin of the Trentadue murder was Eric Holder.
