Army Private Bradley Edward Manning, now known as Chelsea Elizabeth Manning, was released from the U.S. Disciplinary Barracks in Leavenworth, Kansas on May 17 after serving only seven years of a 35-year sentence for releasing approximately 750,000 classified documents to Wikileaks. His sentence was commuted by President Barack Obama three days before he left office.
In April 2015 – while in prison – Manning started receiving hormone therapy to satisfy his desire to appear as a woman. This therapy was bought and paid for by the American taxpayer. A month earlier, the U.S. Army Court of Criminal Appeals ruled that Manning be referred to in either a gender neutral term or a feminine one going forward.
True Pundit personnel, who have served in varying intelligence capacities and agencies for the United States, were floored this morning when combing the Wikileaks database of John Podesta emails.
Podesta, Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, in a Feb. 9, 2016 email makes reference to an assassination. Using the term “wet work,” Podesta sent a cryptic email to Democratic strategist and heavyweight consultant Steve Elmendorf. The term “wet work” is an intelligence slang term with Russian roots. Defined it means to assassinate a public figure, diplomat or someone of political note.
Elmendorf replied to Podesta’s mysterious reference:
“I am all in Sounds like it will be a bad nite , we all need to buckle up and double down”
We do not want to go down the conspiracy rabbit hole here based on one or two comments. However, Podesta’s email was sent on a Tuesday. By Friday, Associate Justice of the Supreme Court Antonin Scalia was found dead at a remote Texas resort. To say Scalia’s death was suspicious is putting it mildly.
No medical examiner on site to decipher cause of death
No U.S. Marshal protection detail accompanying Scalia
No functioning CCTV cameras on day of death
Scalia found clothed on bed with pillow over face
Scalia’s body mysteriously cremated before it could be examined
Resort owner large Obama contributor
And the list goes on and on
We are not alleging Podesta or Elmendorf played a role in Scalia’s death. That is a large leap and making such a leap is how news sites get a reputation for spreading conspiracy theories. But neither are doing themselves any favors by discussing the topic via email either. And the timing cannot be ignored, even by partisan detectives. Simply put: The optics look very bad.
When public officials and Beltway insiders, especially those working for Hillary Clinton, start and correspond to an assassination-themed email thread, they open themselves up wide for criticisms. Likewise this is the definition of poor judgment by both parties, discussing anything related, jokingly or not, to assassination. Podesta, after all, is running a campaign for the presidency of the United States and therefore his communications are held to a higher standard. And in a functioning Republic where law and order prevail, the FBI would want some answers too to the questions were are posing here. Any competent investigator would, based on the troubling timing alone. But, not Director James Comey’s FBI. Not this FBI.
