Everyone knows what happens to people if they cross Hillary Clinton. They usually wind up six feet under the ground. The most recent suspected victim is Peter W. Smith. Eighty-one-year-old Smith was a Republican operative who was attempting to obtain the secret-Hillary emails from her private server. During the investigation, he apparently committed suicide and left a note explaining the reason for his death. The timing was incredibly suspicious.
Days before his death Smith gave an interview to The Wall Street Journal about his attempts to obtain the emails and his relationship to former Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn. Smith denied to the Journal that he was working with the Trump campaign. But in one recruitment document obtained by the Journal, Smith claimed links to Flynn, along with then-Trump campaign staff Steve Bannon, Kellyanne Conway, and Sam Clovis.
After the death of Smith, rumors began flying about the Clintons connection to his suspicious death. It was not the first time someone who got close to Hillary wound up dead. Last year a DNC staffer Seth Rich was gunned down in front of his D.C. home after allegedly leaking DNC documents proving the primaries were rigged for Clinton to win.
Martin Shkreli is the latest to try to expose Clinton and her notorious email scandal. Recently, Shkreli posted some bizarre claims that he possessed Hillary’s emails and her DNA. Shortly after, he posted a cryptic comment claiming his life was in very real danger.
Shkreli is a controversial pharmaceutical executive. He is notorious for his provocative behavior. He posted a picture to his Facebook page on Wednesday claiming that he had obtained a sample of Hillary Clinton’s DNA. After that he posted a photo of him holding a chip claiming it contained the lost Hillary emails.
“How about this chip? 10 million deleted HRC emails? Oh well,” he wrote.
The comment appeared to be in reference to the reported 33,000 emails that Clinton had wiped from a private server during her time as secretary of state.
After posting both pictures, Shkreli posted a cryptic comment that appeared to insinuate that his life may be in danger.
“I am not under any emotional duress. I am of clear mind and rational action. I have seen friends and family recently and I am under no psychological frustration or pressure of any kind. I have stored various files where friends can retrieve them in the event of an emergency. I do not own or ever have owned a gun. I do not leave my house in the middle of the night or travel to a dangerous neighborhood by myself.”
Shkreli then posted a series of characters that many interpreted as a “dead man’s switch,” set to automatically post in the event that something should happen to him.
Martin Shkreli’s comments made waves among conspiracy theorists and were shared across social media, though there was sharp disagreement over whether he was posting sincerely. Shkreli has gained a reputation for being a provocateur, seeming to revel in the notoriety he gained after increasing the price on the AIDS drug Daraprim to $750 per pill from $13.50 per pill.
He has since gained a reputation as a so-called “troll,” and even registered domains in the names of journalists who covered him and then using those sites to mock them. As Mashable noted, Shkreli has been in trouble before for his online harassment of critics and was even kicked off Twitter after violating the platform’s harassment policy in an attack on Teen Vogue editor Lauren Duca.
hey! this is a pretty messed up thing to do to harass and intimidate reporters like me. https://t.co/pYcOyVfT13

Shkreli was also recently convicted of securities fraud for lying to hedge-fund investors about a pharmaceutical drug.
Martin Shkreli has also been known to push conspiracy theories, including those connected to Hillary Clinton. Earlier this summer he offered $100,000 for information that led to the arrest of the killer of Seth Rich, a staff member of the Democratic National Committee shot to death in 2016. Conspiracy theorists have claimed that Rich was the person who leaked the DNC emails to WikiLeaks, claiming that he may have been killed by the DNC in retaliation.
Shkreli may or may not have damning information on Hillary Clinton, but he will likely never be allowed to present it to the world. If he is a threat to the Clinton’s and they believe him to be so, then his life is very much in danger. There are plenty of people that mysteriously die when they mess with the Clinton’s, and Shkreli will be no different if he is not careful.
