On Wednesday morning, longtime “Today” show host Matt Lauer was fired by NBC after he was hit with numerous sexual misconduct allegations. Afterwards, President Donald Trump took to Twitter to gloat about Lauer’s firing, and to drop a bomb on another top liberal media personality with a big skeleton in his closet.
“So now that Matt Lauer is gone when will the Fake News practitioners at NBC be terminating the contract of Phil Griffin? And will they terminate low ratings Joe Scarborough based on the “unsolved mystery” that took place in Florida years ago? Investigate!” Trump wrote.

Freedom Daily reported that Trump was referring to the mysterious 2001 death of 28-year-old Lori Klausutis, who was an intern for Joe Scarborough, a Republican congressman at the time. Klausutis was found dead in Scarborough’s Florida office, and while there was no proof that the current “Morning Joe” host was involved, the case went cold and accusations started to fly.
Scarborough claims that the official story was that Klausutis died after hitting her head on a desk when she fainted while alone in Scarborough’s Fort Walton Beach Florida office. However, allegations have surfaced on the internet that Scarborough was indeed involved, even though investigators found no signs of foul play.

Just a few months after Klausutis died, Scarborough suddenly resigned from Congress, never to return to politics.
It should be noted that in 2003, just two years after Klausutis’ death, Scarborough joked about it while appearing on Don Imus’ radio show.
“Don’t be afraid to be funny, because you are funny. I asked you why you aren’t in Congress. You said that you had sex with the intern, and then you had to kill her,” Imus said.
“Yeah, well, what are you gonna do?” Scarborough replied.
It seems strange that a young woman in her 20s would just die mysteriously in a congressman’s office. At the very least, investigators might want to take Trump’s advice and reopen this case to take another look at it.
