Whoa. GOP operative invoked Bannon and Conway - not just Flynn - as he sought hacked emails

GOP Activist Who Sought Clinton Emails Cited Trump Campaign Officials
Peter W. Smith listed Bannon, Conway and Clovis, besides Flynn, in a recruiting document; his purpose isnít clear and thereís no indication he asked for or received any coordination with them


Mr. Smithís purpose in listing the officials isnít clear. There is no indication in the document that he sought or received any coordination from the campaign officials or the campaign in general.

Mr. Smith died in mid-May at age 81, about 10 days after he spoke to the Journal. He said he operated independently of the Trump campaign.

Officials identified in the document include Steve Bannon, now chief strategist for President Donald Trump; Kellyanne Conway, former campaign manager and now White House counselor; Sam Clovis, a policy adviser to the Trump campaign and now a senior adviser at the Agriculture Department; and retired Lt. Gen. Mike Flynn, who was a campaign adviser and briefly was national security adviser in the Trump administration.

1. Too bad he isn't alive to testify on live TV...

I wonder what would have happened in Watergate had John Dean conveniently passed on before being able to testify?

2. John Dean wasn't 81 years old


The suggestion that there is anything odd about an 81 year old person dying is, itself, kind of odd.
