Peter W. Smith, a top Republican donor, operative, and opposition researcher from Chicago who attempted to retrieve Hillary Clinton’s missing emails from Russian hackers ‘killed himself’ in a Minnesota hotel room.
After Smith talked to the Wall Street Journal about how he was trying to get Hillary Clinton’s missing emails from Russia hackers, he was found dead just 10 days later, on May 14. The stories were published in late June. The reporter said at the time that he believed Smith died of natural causes and wasn’t killed.
Oddly enough the mainstream media ran a fake version of the story claiming he died of an assisted suicide at the Mayo Clinic for several weeks without as much as even checking the official death record following the alleged ‘suicide’.
The Chicago Tribune was the first media outlet to investigate the official story they’d been given.
However, the Chicago Tribune obtained a Minnesota state death record filed in Olmsted County that says Smith committed suicide in a hotel near the Mayo Clinic at 1:17 p.m. on Sunday, May 14. He was found with a bag over his head with a source of helium attached. A medical examiner’s report gives the same account, without specifying the time, and a report from Rochester police further details his suicide.
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.”
