Among Wikileak’s recent dump of Hillary Clinton emails is one that appears to indicate that some sort of conversation about “wet works” was happening around Feb. 9 of this year.
The email exchange is between Clinton’s campaign manager John Podesta and (((Steve Elmendorf))), a special-interest lobbyist still working behind the scenes in politics. In addition he is a lobbyist for oil companies, big banks, the Grocery Manufacturers Association, the leading junk food industry trade group and, most recently, Monsanto.
Podesta is a long-term associate of the Clintons and was President Bill Clinton’s Chief of Staff from 1998 until 2001. Mr Podesta also owns the Podesta Group, a major lobbying firm and is the Chair of the Center for American Progress (CAP), a Washington DC-based think tank.
The following are more than curious Wikileaks emails. By inference there appears to be other e mails before these using the wet works term that have not turned up.

Didn’t think wet works meant pool parties at the Vineyard.

Sounds like it will be a bad nite, we all need to buckle up and double down
Wet work = covert murder, assassination
Pool party = booze, drugs, prostitutes
On Feb. 12, Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia died “in his sleep” at a Texas hunting lodge. As you may recall, he was found with a pillow over his head. The U.S. Marshals Service, which provides security for Supreme Court justices, said that Scalia had declined a security detail while at the ranch.
Curiously, within just two hours of the discovery of Scalia’s body and without a medical examination or autopsy, his death was determined to be of “natural causes” and was embalmed.
In addition there followed a body count of at least four others involving Clinton and DNC skulduggery.
