“Didn’t think wet works meant pool parties at the Vineyard.”
This term is commonly used to refer to an assassination and it was used by Hillary Clinton’s chief aide John Podesta in an email sent to a lobbyist only days before Antonin Scalia, a Supreme Court Justice was found mysteriously dead.
The email was sent to Steve Elmendorf, a DC lobbyist.
“Didn’t think wet works meant pool parties at the Vineyard,” Podesta says in the February 9 email under the subject line “Thanks”.
“I’m all in,” gay lobbyist and Hillary delegate Steve Elmendorf replies. “Sounds like it will be a bad nite, we all need to buckle up and double down.”
Three days after this conversation, Scalia was found dead in a Texas hotel room. There was a pillow found over his head and has been deemed suspicious. There were emails that went through on the day of the discovery talking about whether they should talk about the death or not.
Without any more context, it is hard to know what was meant by the term “wet work.”
This has simply fueled speculation.
