Former Washington D.C. mayor Marion Barry says the FBI allegedly tried to kill him over twenty years ago.
On January 18, 1990, Barry, who was serving his third term as mayor was caught smoking crack cocaine with his then girlfriend Rasheeda Moore in a hotel room. Moore purchased the cocaine from an undercover cop and was willingly cooperating with the government agency.
“The FBI had a mind to entrap me, also the FBI tried to kill me by having some substance that wasn’t proven to be crack,” Barry told reporters.
Barry added that the FBI had an EMT on the premises leading him to believe they were trying to kill him.
“Why would they have an EMT on the scene if they weren’t trying?” he said. “When we went to the lab they couldn’t say what it was,” he added.
