A new theory is circling social media that the Clinton camp had advance knowledge that Justice Antonin Scalia would be murdered based on another Podesta email buried in the thousands released by Wikileaks in recent days.
The email exchange is between Hillary’s campaign chairman and DC lobbyist Steve Elmendorf, whose clients range from Facebook to Goldman Sachs and who is a former chief of staff and senior advisor to Democratic leader Dick Gephardt for over a decade.
Under the inconspicuous subject line simply “Thanks,” Podesta writes, “Didn’t think wet works meant pool parties at the Vineyard.”
“Wetworks” or “wet works,” it has been pointed out, is a military euphemism for assassination.
Elmendorf responds with, “I am all in. Sounds like it will be a bad nite, we all need to buckle up and double down.”
The exchange is dated February 9th. Scalia died at Cibolo Creek Ranch on the 12th, just before he was set to potentially overturn Affirmative Action. Despite the suspicious circumstances surrounding his death, Scalia was immediately embalmed within 24 hours of his body being found, no autopsy.
Cibolo Creek Ranch just so happens to have a pool and is located near what some say is a vineyard.
The theory is cropping up all over social media sites like Facebook, Reddit, and 4-chan.
Others claim the whole thing is really about how they knew Bernie would beat Hillary in the New Hampshire primary on February 9th, meaning the “bad nite” is Hillary’s and not Scalia’s, “wet works” references political assassinations instead of real ones, and that the vineyard reference is just a random, coincidental reference to Martha’s Vineyard thrown in…
It’s no secret top democrats were celebrating the news of Scalia’s death. If you’ll recall, back in August Democratic Ohio Senate candidate Ted Strickland joked about Scalia’s death coming “at a good time”. Stickland received contributions from DC lobbyists and top Clinton contribution bundlers Heather and Tony Podesta (John Podesta’s brother) and from Steve Elmendorf.
