One of the Hillary Clinton’s Podesta emails, in which a term allegedly refers to an assassination, was sent to a lobbyist days before Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia’s mysterious death.
This particular email appeared in a set of documents released by WikiLeaks on Wednesday. In the email, correspondence was exchanged between John Podesta and D.C. lobbyist Steve Elmendorf.
John Podesta wrote about “wet works” in the February 9 email with the subject line “Thanks.”
“Didn’t think wet works meant pool parties at the Vineyard,” Podesta wrote, according to the email.
DC lobbyist and Hillary Clinton delegate Steve Elmendorf replied to the email with: “I’m all in. Sounds like it will be a bad nite, we all need to buckle up and double down.”
According to My San Antonio, three days after the email correspondence took place between Podesta and Elmendorf, Justice Scalia was later found dead in a hotel room in Texas on the night of February 12.
People became suspicious over the mysterious death, considering that a pillow was discovered over Justice Scalia’s head.
Most interestingly, in the high trove of documents leaked by WikiLeaks, emails were found sent during Hillary Clinton campaign on the day Scalia’s death was announced. These particular emails show that the campaign argued on whether or not the address should be issued.
According to Truth Feed, the term “wetwork” particularly means a murder or assassination. It was stated by a former NSA analyst who pointed out it was usually spelled one word.
The incident eventually grew more mysterious when Presidio County Judge Cinderela Guevara pronounced that Scalia died due to natural causes even without seeing the body, nor without ordering an autopsy. However, it is allowed under Texas law.
