Months after Lake Forest businessman Peter W. Smith’s suicide in a Minnesota hotel, both the U.S. Senate and House intelligence committees are examining his self-described efforts to contact Russian hackers and find thousands of Hillary Clinton’s deleted emails, sources close to both investigations tell the Tribune.
An attorney for the Republican donor and operative’s estate said this week that some of Smith’s documents have been turned over to the Senate Intelligence Committee. The panel is investigating topics including whether President Donald Trump’s campaign colluded with Russians during last year’s presidential campaign. ABC News first reported the committee received documents from Smith’s estate.
According to attorney Elizabeth Lee Beck: "At 4:54 p.m. today [June 1], an individual called our law office from '305-936-5724.'" That number is the contact phone number for Wasserman Schultz's Aventura office in Florida.
"My secretary stated that it sounded like the caller was using a voice changer, because the voice sounded robotic and genderless — along the lines of the voice changers used when television show interviews are kept anonymous," Beck continued. "The caller concluded with 'Okey dokey,' after my secretary gave the caller public information about the case. After the call ended, a simple Google search of the phone number '305-936-5724' shows that it is the phone number for Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz' Aventura office ... What just occurred is highly irregular and we will be filing the instant e-mail with the court forthwith."
Beck also included a screen shot of the caller ID information.
This article reveals that his death was actually a "suicide", not as originally reported as an accident.
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.
Police said that because they did not suspect foul play, they had not viewed any security video from the Walmart store to confirm that Smith bought the tanks himself.

There is no blood trail. Just stupid conspiracy theories. I don't see this story disappearing any time soon. Just add his name to the ridiculous list you guys think they're responsible for murdering.
And people wonder at my feelings of superiority here. Shakes head. This is one reason.
