One of the most ominous memes about the Clinton Family is the propensity of people close to them winding up dead. Unfortunately, this “meme” always seems to turn into reality.
81-year-old Peter W. Smith, a long-time Republican activist, was recently found dead in a Minnesota hotel room. His suicide note claimed that his death was the result of an expiring $5 million life insurance policy and ill health. However, Smith had just recently testified that he was involved in finding Hillary Clinton’s hacked emails, via IJR.
Smith told his confession to the Wall Street Journal just days before his suicide.
Mr. Smith apparently believed that Clinton’s emails had been acquired by Russian hackers. His role, he claimed, was to track down these emails, via Chicago Tribune.
Many on the Internet are not buying this explanation, especially since news outlets have uncovered the fact that the Russian lawyer at the heart of the scandal involving Donald Trump, Jr. is a long-time Democrat operative, via Independent.
Also furthering suspicions is the long history of dead bodies piling up around the Clintons.
In 1993, Vince Foster, a Deputy White House Counsel during the Clinton administration, committed suicide. The official theory is that Foster killed himself due to fears of false accusations. Others claim that the Clintons had Foster killed because he knew too much about the Whitewater scandal, via Washington Post.
Whitewater suspect James McDougal died of a suspicious heart attack in 1998 during the height of the Monica Lewinsky scandal, via New York Times.
In 1992, Victor Raiser, the chief financial aid to Bill Clinton’s presidential campaign, died in a strange airplane crash with his son, via New York Times.
More recently, in 2016, corrupt UN leader John Ashe died in a very bizarre weight lifting accident before he could give potentially damaging testimony involving the Clinton Foundation, via The Guardian.
Of course, many still maintain that DNC staffer and Bernie Sanders supporter Seth Rich was murdered by Clinton associates because he leaked the DNC emails to WikiLeaks.
All of these deaths could be coincidental. However, by viewing them all together, it is beyond eyebrow-raising that so many people with corrupt connections to the Clintons have a habit of dying young or in bizarre circumstances.
Mr. Smith could be just another victim of depression and ill health. Or, conversely, he could be another corpse linked to the Clinton Crime Family of Arkansas and Washington, D.C.
