The Clintons have raised eyebrows for how many people who might have ‘dirt’ on them happen to die untimely deaths.
Cynics just added two more names to that list.
It is possible that they are nothing more than what is claimed: two unfortunate souls who decided to end their lives.
On the other hand, what went with them to their graves will (naturally) fuel a certain amount of speculation, especially among those who think the Clintons capable of great evil.
To the point: Two men were recently found dead. It was called suicide in both instances. Both had (or claimed to have) information potentially damaging to the Clintons. And they have both carried any secrets they may have had to the grave.
The two men in question are Klaus Eberwein and Peter W. Smith.
The former was a Haitian official, scheduled to testify concerning Fraud and Corruption in the Haiti Earthquake relief.
The latter claimed knowledge about the missing Clinton emails, and who was ‘really’ responsible for the Russian hacking — NOT the Russian government.
Both have been found dead.
Klaus was found dead in a Miami hotel.
Klaus Eberwein, a former Haitian government official who was expected to expose the extent of Clinton Foundation corruption and malpractice next week, has been found dead in Miami. He was 50.
Eberwein was due to appear next Tuesday before the Haitian Senate Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission where he was widely expected to testify that the Clinton Foundation misappropriated Haiti earthquake donations from international donors.– Read More
If you’re new to the Clinton-Haiti controversy, this will get you up to speed.
According to Miami-Dade’s medical examiner records supervisor, the official cause of death is “gunshot to the head“. Eberwein’s death has been registered as “suicide.”
The Miami Herald also referenced both his death by gunshot in a Hotel and his scheduled testimony next week.
The second death also ruled ‘by suicide’ has provoked wild theories on BOTH sides of the political spectrum.
Peter W. Smith was from Chicago, 81 years old, and a Republican partisan.
He had a history of digging up dirt on political opponents, the Clintons included.
Originally his death was chalked up to old age, or natural causes, including a lead reporter for the case, stating on a podcast that he had no reason to suspect foul play, and that it was likely natural causes. (Hold that thought.)
He was part of an effort to expose the real culprits behind the hacking everyone is talking about, and implicated a company called Crowdstrike, and it’s Russian founder Dmitri Alperovitch.
(Is anyone else wondering why a Russian tech firm was handling US electronics security and is ‘crawling with’ former US Intelligence agents?)
Specifically, it was the first to publish evidence of the Russian government interfering in the U.S. election by hacking into and subsequently releasing emails for the Democratic National Committee.–TechCrunch
One of his tweets gives an idea of what he thought was really going on with Russia:

— Peter W. Smith (@PTRSIH) January 16, 2017
[Smith Was 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 Clinic patients 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.
Days earlier, the financier from suburban Lake Forest gave an interview to the Journal about his quest, and it began publishing stories about his efforts in late June. The Journal also reported it had seen emails written by Smith showing his team considered retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, then a top adviser to Republican Donald Trump’s campaign, an ally. — Chicago Tribune
And then things really get weird.
Like the detail on his suicide note stating (in all caps) ‘NO FOUL PLAY WHATSOEVER’.
Ok, did he not realize that even if it IS true, writing that still seems sketchy?
Smith was found with a bag tied over his head, attached to a helium source. A funeral home employee said they saw a helium tank in his room. The employee told The Chicago Tribune that it was about the size of a propane tank.
Even people on the Left who are assuming this a Russian conspiracy think this situation looks sketchy.
(And really, what ISN’T a Russian conspiracy these days? Spicer’s Russian Dressing quip looks more relevant every day.)
They point to tweets about people who knew him and didn’t think he was depressed or suicidal. Others point to emails he wrote just days before his death, still convinced of his cause.
Smith told the Journal he believed the missing emails might have been obtained by Russian hackers. He also said he thought the correspondence related to Clinton’s official duties. He told the Journal he worked independently and was not part of the Trump campaign. He also told the Journal he and his team found five groups of hackers — two of them Russian groups — that claimed to have Clinton’s missing emails.
Smith had a history of doing opposition research, the formal term for unflattering information that political operatives dig up about rival candidates.
For years, former Democratic President Bill Clinton was Smith’s target. The wealthy businessman had a hand in exposing the “Troopergate” allegations about Bill Clinton’s sex life. And he discussed financing a probe of a 1969 trip Bill Clinton took while in college to the Soviet Union, according to Salon magazine. –Heavy
Even the method of his death has a hint of mystery behind it: (emphasis added)
An employee with Rochester Cremation Services, the funeral home that responded to the hotel, said he helped remove Smith’s body from his room and recalled seeing a tank.
The employee, who spoke on condition he not be identified because of the sensitive nature of Smith’s death, described the tank as being similar in size to a propane tank on a gas grill. He did not recall seeing a bag that Smith would have placed over his head. He said the coroner and police were there and that he “didn’t do a lot of looking around.”
“When I got there and saw the tank, I thought, ‘I’ve seen this before,’ and was able to put two and two together,” the employee said. –Chicago Tribune
Again, innocent explanations are possible. But the number of unanswered questions is enough that it isn’t open-and-shut.
Both of these suspicious suicides happened when they were (at least theoretically) in a position to do some harm to the Clintons.
And if there is a common denominator in all the other mysterious deaths surrounding the Clintons, it was that: The potential to disclose information that would be damaging to the Clintons. In fact, Smith actually HAD, in the past, released harmful information against Bill (Troopergate). Opposition Research (muck-racking) was actually his job.
And now that they’re both dead, however plausible their reasons for suicide may have seemed, this puts a different light on it… at least for the Cynics.
