The unexpected death of a chef who worked for President Barack Obama has drawn attention to the posthumous investigation of another chef, formerly employed by Hillary Clinton, who also died in a drowning accident during a hiking trip back in 2015.

Certain details concerning Campbell’s untimely passing don’t add up.

DC_Draino presented a list of crucial questions that investigators should address, assuming they are planning to investigate. The American public deserves to know the answers.

Who else was with him?

A 2nd paddleboarder was reported Was there any foul play? Pushing? Shoving?

Was he provided a life vest? If not, why not?

Is there video footage? I imagine Obama’s house has extensive surveillance footage

Was he under the influence? If so, who served him and allowed him to paddleboard while drunk?

How long did people wait to call 911 after he was submerged?

Were any Secret Service present? If so, did they assist?

Jordan Schachtel, publisher of The Dossier, pointed out an Instagram post from 2017 that seemed to imply Campbell was unable to swim.

“Found an IG post from 2017 in which Tafari Campbell, Obama’s chef, notes that he can’t swim,” Schachtel writes.

“He drowned last night in Martha’s Vineyard while reportedly out paddle boarding with an unnamed person. Unclear why they couldn’t help him out in 8 feet of water,” he added.

Breaking Digest reported that, in a surprising twist, cyber sleuths discovered a 2019 video showing Campbell taking swimming lessons.

“Update: The Obama chef who reportedly drowned later became a proficient swimmer,” Schachtel wrote in an updated post.

“More from his IG feed. This is very weird,” he added.

Take a look:

He shared statistics from his swimming sessions, showcasing significant improvement over time. One post revealed Campbell’s accomplishments, as he completed a combination of 25 yards of backstroke, 100 yards of freestyle, and 200 yards of backstroke in just 34 minutes. On a separate occasion, he achieved a breaststroke of 25 yards, backstroke of 100 yards, and freestyle of 175 yards in a commendable 37 minutes.

Campbell reportedly drowned in eight-foot-deep water approximately 100 feet away from the shore.

Yet, footage from his Instagram shows that he was at least a decent swimmer.


Curiously, Campbell is not the only former White House chef who died in a drowning incident.

According to reports, 61-year-old Walter Scheib, a chef who served during the Bill Clinton and George W. Bush administrations at the White House, tragically drowned in 2015.

Reuters reported:

A former White House chef who went missing after setting off alone on a hike near Taos, New Mexico, died of accidental drowning in a mountain stream, state police said on Tuesday.

The corpse of Walter Scheib, 61, hidden by dense vegetation and down a steep slope about 25 yards off a hiking trail, was discovered with the help of a search dog.

“Responding officers did not observe any indication of suspicious circumstances or foul play,” police said in a statement, adding that no items or provisions belonging to Scheib had been found in the area.

Scheib’s body was submerged, the statement said, and an autopsy determined the cause and nature of his death.

Authorities have said that the chef recently moved to the area, and that on June 13 he embarked alone on the Yerba Canyon trail, which reaches altitudes above 12,000 feet.

His car was found parked at the trailhead a week ago, and his body was found on Sunday evening.

Scheib served as White House executive chef under Bill Clinton and George W. Bush from 1994 until 2005.
