Peter W. Smith, Gop Operative Who Sought Clinton’s Emails From Russian Hackers, Committed Suicide


A Republican donor and operative from Chicago’s North Shore who said he had tried to obtain Hillary Clinton’s missing emails from Russian hackers killed himself in a Minnesota hotel room days after talking to The Wall Street Journal about his efforts, public records show.

In mid-May, in a room at a Rochester hotel used almost exclusively by Mayo Clinicpatients and relatives, Peter W. Smith, 81, left a carefully prepared file of documents, including a statement police called a suicide note in which he said he was in ill health and a life insurance policy was expiring.

In the note recovered by police, Smith apologized to authorities and said that “NO FOUL PLAY WHATSOEVER” was involved in his death. He wrote that he was taking his own life because of a “RECENT BAD TURN IN HEALTH SINCE JANUARY, 2017” and timing related “TO LIFE INSURANCE OF $5 MILLION EXPIRING.” Read more at The Chicago Tribune.




  1. Deaths related to the Clinton crime family just keeps on growing. I guess that’s why the justice department are so petrified of investigating them. That’s why Loretta Lynch bowed down before them. That’s why the big duffus, James the lier Comey, refused to charge them with anything. That’s why the little pipsqueak, Jeff Sessions, won’t do anything to the Clintons. THE CLINTONS ARE ABOVE THE LAW!!!
