His name was Peter Smith

At this point, the Clinton emails have a more extensive body count than The Ring. It's like watching a political horror movie in real time:
GOP operative who sought Clinton's emails committed suicide

A Republican Party operative who said he tried to obtain Hillary Clinton’s emails from Russian hackers committed suicide days after speaking to The Wall Street Journal, records acquired by the Chicago Tribune show.

Peter W. Smith, an 81-year-old GOP donor from Chicago, was found dead in a Rochester, Minnesota hotel room on May 14. The Tribune obtained a state death record stating Smith committed suicide in the hotel on the date.

The Journal reported that Smith, a longtime opposition researcher for the GOP, “mounted an independent campaign to obtain emails he believed were stolen by Hillary Clinton’s private server, likely by Russian hackers” and implied he was working with Gen. Michael Flynn, then a senior adviser to then-candidate Donald Trump.

Smith said he had created a team to find the emails that might have been stolen by hackers during Clinton’s tenure as U.S. Secretary of State, although the Journal reported Smith was focused on obtaining the 30,000 emails Clinton claimed she deleted because they were personal.
That doesn't sound suspicious at all. I'm only surprised that it wasn't found that he committed suicide by shooting himself three times in the back of the head before being run over by a train on an abandoned railroad track.

'His death, which a police chief called “unusual,” had been recorded as “asphyxiation due to displacement of oxygen in a confined space with helium.” Smith was found with a bag over his head and a helium source attached.'

Helium. Huh.

I can already predict how this story will end: with crickets chirping. Every news outlet will report that a man in his 80s went to another state and killed himself in a hotel room. If it even gets reported at all.

It'll be put in the memory hole and right wingers will bring it up every so often to prove once and for all how evil the Liberals are.

I honestly hope Trump takes action on stuff like this and all the other blatant corruption. He can start with Hillary, her emails, her server, and her Foundation.

Stories like this are why I stopped paying attention to mainstream news on a daily basis. I haven't watched Foxnews in 3 years.

What's the point ? I already know how every story ends: Democrats win.

For twenty years, I paid close attention to all the political scandals, starting in the Clinton years. I furiously posted on the message boards, read the articles, the columns, read every reply, etc. All for naught. Nothing ever happened. Nobody ever went to jail.

These days I'm much more interested in the big picture and the macro trends. Hence why I started paying much more attention to Vox the past 2 years.

Let me know when somebody gets arrested. I may start paying attention again.

Signs of a struggle? Putting a bag over somebody's head doesn't knock them out instantly, let alone kill them instantly. You couldn't kill him that way if he was conscious, without a struggle.
Otherwise he could have been killed another way (how?) first and then the bag put over to make it look like a suicide.

Anonymous Ulick McGee July 14, 2017 5:41 AM  

Helium is a relatively painless way to commit suicide and easily obtainable. Last year I attended a talk in the Foreign Correspondents Club in Hong Kong whereby a local Professor urged the attending journalists not to mention the suicide method used in their reporting.

Apparently, as each new method enters public consciousness it leads to a spike in suicides. For example, bathrooms in Hong Kong are tiny so burning charcoal in the loo is an effective way to kill yourself here. Some degenerate singer topped himself many years back, making the public aware of this relatively easy method of suicide (compared to jumping off a building or in front of a train) while simultaneously making it cool.

Helium is even easier: clean, no smell, euphoria. The prof was worried it would lead to a big jump in successful attempts if a sufficiently popular degenerate did themselves in that way.

What shocked me was the eagerness of the cunty female journos to lie for the prof. It was all: "tell us what to write, oh wise one, for we are lightworkers and shall transform the world".

It being HK, the prof was having none of it. Just don't mention the method, he frequently repeated.

Blogger Benjamin Kraft July 14, 2017 5:52 AM  

@11. SirGroggy, you're missing the point. If someone is asleep, you can settle a bag over their head (literally over, not under, no reason to give them any sensation to wake up from), fill it with helium (which will stay up in the bag because it's "lighter than air") and they suffocate.

For bonus points, your body is incapable of sensing lack of oxygen, the only thing your body senses is a buildup of carbon dioxide, which also won't happen because the helium will displace it downward as you breathe it out. You go to sleep and don't wake up and you never feel a thing, or in his case you stay asleep.

Blogger Benjamin Kraft July 14, 2017 5:56 AM  

If they're a quite light sleeper and wake up anyway... well, that's when you put them back to sleep gently under a pillow, or with a bullet to the back of the head if they happen to be stronger than you.

Blogger Cail Corishev July 14, 2017 6:05 AM  

For twenty years, I paid close attention to all the political scandals, starting in the Clinton years.

I know what you mean. People have been dying around the Clintons at a ridiculous rate since the 1980s. Paradoxically, the more people who die, the harder it is to get anyone to look at it. If it were just one or two people, maybe. But when it's dozens or hundreds of suspicious deaths, that indicates a level of corruption that normies aren't willing to imagine could exist in the good old USA, outside of movies.

I take some hope from the surge of pedophiles and pedo rings being busted all over the place. Something's going on, though I'm not sure what, or what's driving it. If there's anything that could provide leads to the ugliest corners of the swamp, while producing evidence of crimes bad enough to shock Americans out of their complacency, that might be it.

commit an elaborate suicide in a hotel room with a bag and helium.

I don't care if he was 110 and passed peacefully while humming Amazing Grace surrounded by loved ones. If the Clintons are involved even tangentially, it should be investigated.

This may be a legit suicide. Inert gas asphyxiation should be a painless way to murder yourself.

However he could have been lured to the location by someone promising to deliver evidence. Then slipped a sedative to make sure they slept deeply. Administering the helium coup de grâce, would have been simple.

@30 ZhukovG

Agreed. This isn't someone stuffing themselves in a duffel bag. (Yes, that one happened.)

As for the "Clintons", I realized not long after the election that we think about the Clintons are Kingpins. They aren't. They're conduits for other interests. That's why D.C. went harder for Hillary than Obama. (Think about that statement.)

It's why the Clinton Body Count is *very* real, but if Bill or Hillary has ordered more tahn 1 or 2 hits the entire time, I'd be surprised. (Vince Foster were clearly Hillary wanting him dead.) It's the major network around the Clintons that works to protect itself. This goes back to the CIA drug running through Mena, AR. Bill was AG then 3-term Governor of the State during that time frame. Bush 41 was CIA director when the drug running was approved.

That drug running funded the CIA's black programs and other "State within a State" activities they've been up to, but they, mostly, eventually shut the program down. They shifted to a "look the other way" approach for a lot of that stuff. However, they had to run "clean up" operations. This is the chain of events that caused Ruby Ridge (forcing a guy to be an informant), Waco (had information?) and the Oklahoma City bombing (reprisal operation). Bush 41 running drugs in the 70s got children killed in OKC in 1995. That's mostly what keeping Clinton World defended is about. Plus plenty of other petty corruption. Lots and lots of it, in fact.

There are compounds that break down quickly in the body and don't leave anything behind. Providing a medical examiner with an obivous method of death usually steers them in that direction. Or just make sure a corrupt and/or incompetent ME gets hired in that county. The bad ME method can be used for years at a time as long as everything is kept in that county.

@ 30 Right on.
Something I've been wondering about for awhile, is a pattern in the method(s). This guy is old, if this is a hit, the hitman probably has some foreknowledge of who he's dealing with. Young, old, strong, weak, lush, etc. So there won't be the same exact method in each case. From the little I've looked into it, some of the deaths have occurred in the bathroom. Not sure of the details, but be it in the shower, or on the can, a sudden entry would make the average person feel vulnerable due to the shocking loss of privacy; less inclined in that split second to fight back.
For the sake of safety, a discussion of this, or a link to a relevant discussion would be beneficial.

Second, The info he did likely have was background on his interactions with the Trump team.

Why would the Clinton team be concerned at all that this guy had info on the Trump team interacting with him?

Yeah. But here's what we know. Everyone in the Trump campaign that said they had no contact with Russians is turning out to be liars. Why would they lie about these things. It appears that the "Fake News" agencies are finding out the facts.

Now, all this is going to go much, much deeper. You know why? Because as we speak, Mueller is has forensic accountants looking at the past 10 years of Trump's and Trump Co's tax returns. Look very, very closely at the expertise of those who Mueller has hired.

"This is moving the goalposts pretty far... "Trump is a Russian agent" -> "Trump colluded with Russia" -> "Trump's son met a Russian woman for 10 minutes once!"

There are no goal posts. There is only the facts on the ground.

"No one met with Russians"
Fact: Just about everyone did

"The meeting was about adoptions"
In Fact, it was about taking aid from Russia to beat Hillary

"Manifort and Kushner didn't know anything about the subject of the meeting"
They were informed of the intent to look at damaging Hillary info.

A day after the meeting, Trump announces big speech on Hillary Dirt (never happened).

The question isn't did they collude with a foreign power to influence the election, but rather to what extent.

In the end, what we will find is that the collusion was pretty extensive, including the Trump campaign and associates providing Russia with help in their effort to use Fake news to influence very specific constituencies.

Now, combine all this, with the coming revelation that Trump is far more indebted to Russian government-linked banks, along with his inability to 1) pass healthcare, 2) Pass tax reform, 3) get the wall built and you end up with something that many have know for some time: Corruption and incompetence.

I don't know what he based his plots and characters on, except I've heard tell he was inspired by Shakespeare's Richard III. Having been Chief of Staff of his party and a member of the peerage, no doubt he was privy to a lot of secrets. Maybe not Eyes Wide Shut stuff, but stuff to keep us entertained.

The U.S. series never goes behind the curtain, so to speak. They have corruption isolated to a tiny group of very important persons. (I'm talking discreet crimes like murder, not generalized Money in Politics stuff.)

@28-I should add in the British version the Prime Minister's wife barely registers as a character. The U.S. version makes her the second most important character, and in a lot of ways she comes off as Hillary with sex appeal.

She ignores her husband's affair, for instance. (While having her own.) Tries to jump into politics at the highest level on his coattails, with public backlash when she fails. But then, unlike Clinton, she starts succeeding wildly and ends up as president.

Not by being elected, however. If I recall correctly, the House votes her into the Vice Presidency after the Electoral College fails to pick a clear winner, then her husband-president resigns.

"He needed to suicide" is evidently a valid conclusion to an inquest in Idaho. Good on 'em.

And now another coincidence ...

"Yeah. But here's what we know. Everyone in the Trump campaign that said they had no contact with Russians is turning out to be liars. Why would they lie about these things. It appears that the "Fake News" agencies are finding out the facts."

Exactly. You tell 'em! Now if the evil right wing media would only stop covering up the role of the notorious KGB double agent and Putin minion, Dmitri Alperovitch in this dastardly plot, we could blow the whole Russian conspiracy wide open! I'm with you, comrade!

Sometimes I'm not sure if promoting the Russian conspiracy theory so fantically is such a good idea, after all, though. I mean, think about it-- you and I, and all the other fine, upstanding, loyal members of the Far Left, are claiming that it's inappropriate for anyone attached to an American political campaign to speak with a foreign national who has any kind of connection to a foreign government, no matter how tenuous. Isn't that, well, anti-semitic? Could be very problematic, you know.

When I see how people like the Clintons constantly get away with shit like this without even as much as a wristie-slap, it's at time like these I'm actually glad the fires of Hell are not temporary but eternal. These evil bastards can laugh and revel in their wickedness all the way to their deathbeds if that's the way they wanna play it (and they most likely will) but they can't escape punishment in the next life. They can escape it in this life but not in the next.
