Disinfo: SVR: former High Representative of the UN died before testifying against Clinton

Summary

According to the report of Russian intelligence service SVR, former High Representative of the UN John Ash has been found dead in his house. He should have testified against Hillary Clinton.

Disproof

Conspiracy referring to a non-existent SVR report - as usual on whatdoesitmean.com. Former U.N. Diplomat John Ashe did die in a June 2016 accident, but his trial was not set to begin five days later, and he wasn't testifying against Hillary Clinton.

Ash should have stood trial because of the suspicion of tax fraud and bribery mostly at the hands of Chinese investors. He was supposed to help them arrange a UN conference center in Macau.

Ashe died in a weight-lifting accident when a barbell he was lifting from a bench dropped on his neck.
