Alan Krueger, top economic adviser to President Bill Clinton and President Barack Obama, has died at the age of 58.

Krueger was found dead on Saturday at his home in Princeton, New Jersey. His family said in a statement released by Princeton University, where he taught since 1987, that the cause of death was suicide.

“It is with tremendous sadness we share that Professor Alan B. Krueger, beloved husband, father, son, brother, and Princeton professor of economics, took his own life over the weekend.

“The family requests the time and space to grieve and remember him. In lieu of flowers, we encourage those wishing to honor Alan to make a contribution to the charity of their choice.”

Princeton had not provided a cause of death. The university said in its statement: “In addition to his scholarship, Alan’s life exemplified a commitment to public service. He was married with two children.

Krueger was the chief economist for the U.S. Department of Labor in 1994 and 1995 under Clinton and was an assistant secretary of the Treasury from 2009 to 2010 and the chair of the White House Council of Economic Advisers from 2011 to 2013 under Obama.

A distinguished labor economist, Krueger was perhaps most famous for empirical research finding that increases in the minimum wage did not cause the large job losses that were expected. That original finding led to a broader reconsideration of the minimum wage within academic economists.

Most recently, Krueger had written a book on inequality, due in June, titled “Rockonomics: A Backstage Tour of What the Music Industry Can Teach Us about Economics and Life.”

In a statement, Obama called Krueger “a fundamentally good and decent man.”

“Alan was someone who was deeper than numbers on a screen and charts on a page,” Obama said. “He saw economic policy not as a matter of abstract theories, but as a way to make people’s lives better.”

Krueger received numerous awards, including the Kershaw Prize by the Association for Public Policy and Management in 1997 for distinguished contributions to public policy analysis by someone under the age of 40.

He is survived by his wife, Lisa, and two children.

      Will they ever take the CLinton’s down for good ?

      Does anyone really believe suicide when the Clinton’s are involved?

    Did he shoot himself in the back of his head by any chance?

    • Allen Miller

      March 22, 2019 at 6:53 pm

      Actually he did, twice…the routine double tap suicide in the Clinton murder book.

        You and LST beat me to it. This is exactly what I was going to post.

      Probably so! That’s how most of the Clinton ‘suicides’ happened!

    • FAST EDDIE

      March 22, 2019 at 8:10 pm

      Probably twice

    • neo

      March 22, 2019 at 11:34 pm

      Twice with two different caliber weapons

    • E G MUSK

      Yes, twice.

    • Mark Terzano

      March 23, 2019 at 9:56 am

      No. He was hanging upside down from a beam, with his hands tied behind his back and a bullet in the back of his head. Now that is suicide.

    He’s dead, he knew too much.

    • wilmot mather

      March 22, 2019 at 7:21 pm

      Sadly another statistic to the growing list of the Clinton murders– now around 215 or around. Its a travesty of justice that this serial killer continues to evade justice. Guess its vigilante justice that will prevent further killings.

      Exactly

    How many people do you know that commit suicide? It seems like Clinton knows a whole bunch. Or they die in a car or-plane crash.

    • Bird

      March 22, 2019 at 10:41 pm

      I’m 72 years old and I know of only ONE person who has committed suicide… make that two. I realize that Clintons have a lot more contacts, thus, the possibilities for more deaths, but REALLY?! The numbers are astoundingly unbelievable!

        I’m 76 and only know 2 suicides of people in my town. Both within a year of returning from Viet Nam.

    It is sad when anyone commits suicide suicide is a permanent end to a temporary problem and as such never a good thing.

  6. Barbara

    March 22, 2019 at 6:53 pm

    Committed suicide???? I doubt it more like another Hitlery killing!

  7. Shelba J Holmes

    No great loss in my opinion.

    Hillary got another notch on her gun!!!

  9. Roberta Brown

    Hmmm…wonder what he knew about Obama and the Clintons that got him murdered.

    • Al

      March 23, 2019 at 12:13 am

      I believe that’s the main mystery. He knew too much. Bet it was Obama and Hillary’s involvement in the Mule-face case.

      No doubt about it

    • Armymike

      March 26, 2019 at 11:47 pm

      He was probably getting ready to blow the whistle on the Clintons that he had proof that the fake dossier WAS paid for by the Clintons and Obama. Look for more suicides as time goes on and Barr starts investigating the Russian hoax!

  12. Pamela Conley

    March 22, 2019 at 7:38 pm

    Wonder what he knew???

    • Paul

      March 22, 2019 at 7:54 pm

      When I first say this, the first thing that came to my mind was what each of the prior replies stated. Clinton’s won’t stop until every witness is dead

  13. Nerak

    March 22, 2019 at 7:39 pm

    What I’m wondering is: are the Clinton’s EVER going to be held accountable for who and what they are and how many lives they have directly or indirectly ruined, defamed, or murdered?

    • Jan

      March 23, 2019 at 8:17 am

      Clinton’s and all their evil associates need not fear prosecution from anybody on earth. Their punishment will come when judgement comes from the Lord. And it will be worse than anything the law couldn’t do. Forever is a long time for a soul to burn in Hell

    Your headline specifically states “BREAKING: Former Top Obama and Clinton Adviser Found Dead — His Family Reveals Cause of Death”.

    There is no information about the cause of death and the headline is very misleading.

    • FAST EDDIE

      March 22, 2019 at 8:13 pm

      …and mysterious.

    • Ms.Jan

      March 22, 2019 at 10:20 pm

      The article explicitly says the family says the cause of death was suicide.

  16. Mitch D.

    Cause of Death – “Being a former advisor to Obama and Clinton.”

    • Marta

      Cause of death “colluded with Clinton’s/ obama

    ‪Under President Trump, best economy in decades, lowest unemployment numbers for Blacks and Hispanics EVER (women in 15years) Best president ever, President Trump!‬ Under Obama/Demoncrats the country was going to hell in hand basket!

  18. B

    March 22, 2019 at 8:23 pm

    And another one bites the dust!! Wonder what he knew on Clinton and Obama?

  19. Phyllis White

    A bit suspicious!

  20. Paul Lee

    March 22, 2019 at 8:33 pm

    OMG. Are they sure it wasn’t a heart attack or car accident? I thought the Clintons gave up on the suicide thin.

  21. Polky

    March 22, 2019 at 8:36 pm

    Really?I think this should be investigated

  22. Josie

    March 22, 2019 at 9:00 pm

    Any accounting specialist can create algorithms to make it appear lives are being saved. Its still not good enough reason to increase peoples taxes. Or throw away money on boondoggle projects.

  23. Monique

    March 22, 2019 at 9:12 pm

    If over 200 people died and they all had me in common, how long do you think it’d before the cops showed up with some very uncomfortable questions!

    • ShadowWarriorsMonkey

      March 22, 2019 at 10:12 pm

      2 shots to the back of the head, rolled up in a carpet and a note stating neither Obama or Clinton had nothing to do with the decision to take my life with a book coming out soon and a really good gig as a Professor of Economics, where I’m paid quite handsomely.

  24. ca

    March 22, 2019 at 10:51 pm

    sounds like a case for bob mueller to investigate now that he has nothing to do!
    the clintons will go down in history as THE most corrupt politician/grifters to ever claw their way into DC and the white house…. their shadow still looms large in the deep state…

  25. okiedokie

    When are the Clinton’s, Obama’s and yes George Soros going to be investigated for so many murders?
    Let’s not forget George Soros is snuggled in bed with Bill, Hillary, Barack and Michelle!

  27. E G MUSK

    March 23, 2019 at 1:14 am

    He was obviously murdered. He had a book coming out.

  28. Steve Hughes

    THAT settles it. We NEED the HillaryBeast on the FRONT LINES, somewhere in the Middle East where there’s a shooting war……………………….

    March 23, 2019 at 2:03 am

    On reflection, maybe we should keep her here. She’s been doing a HELL of a job thinning out the SWAMP HERD over the last decade……

    Suicide or Hillarycide?

    Did he fall asleep on the railroad tracks? I know rail steel is so soft and cuddly..

  32. LINDA MCINTIRE

    March 23, 2019 at 7:37 am

    Maybe Special Agent Mueller should investigate this!

  33. Armasik

    March 23, 2019 at 8:11 am

    Most likely he knew where those 13 trillion of money stolen from American taxpayers during the presidency of Clinton and Obama are located.

  34. kodster

    March 23, 2019 at 8:52 am

    No, we’re not adding to the Clinton Body Count. This one starts a WHOLE NEW list! Trust me.

    March 23, 2019 at 10:02 am

    Suicides are going to become epidemic for the “Mr. Lefty” supporters, deep state will provide the means and opportunity.

  36. Elinor Ann DeMendonca

    March 23, 2019 at 12:08 pm

    I would sincerely like to know, from his spouse, parents, whether he was actually suicidal or whether they have questions if he did in fact commit suicide. CNN will not report it?

  37. Frank Campo

    March 23, 2019 at 12:35 pm

    Would have been better if Odumbo and Clinton had committed suicide too.

  38. Pattie Kelly

    March 23, 2019 at 3:59 pm

    This is getting too weird. All these people are dying or getting killed that were connected to Obama and Clinton. The list is huge. We should be doing an investigation. I mean REALLY!!!!

    I believe Obama had Justice Scalia murdered. Obama was seen talking to the owner of that ranch where the Justice was visiting in Texas. Maybe Obama learned a lot more from Hillary than we thought? So another man, that loved his job and his life and family, suddenly decides to kill himself? He probably knew enough on these two crooks to hang them!
