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 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, which includes 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 published stories about his efforts beginning 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, as an ally. Flynn briefly was President Trump's national security adviser and resigned after it was determined he had failed to disclose contacts with Russia.

Secret to a long life: if you know stuff do not tell ANYONE you know stuff. Get everything in triplicate, all types of devices.

Peter was obviously murdered.

No doubt Hillary Clinton and the Deep State are the suspects.

I wish Attorney General Jeff Sessions viewed Hillary Clinton and the Deep State as a bigger threat to our Republic’s survival than MS13.

This certainly needs to be investigated.
