There’s an email from the recent Wikileaks drops that is causing a big stir on the internet.
The email refers to his death and the “bad night” that will likely proceed.
Where it turns interesting is when one of the emailers uses the term “wet works” when discussing his actual death.
“Wet Works” is a euphemism for murder or assassination, alluding to spilling blood.
The expression “wet work“, as well as the similar “wet job”, “wet affair”, or “wet operation”, are all calques of the euphemism used by the KGB.

US Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia dies, aged 79. Scalia died in his sleep at age 79 on the night of February 12 or the morning of February 13, 2016, following an afternoon of quail hunting and dining at the Cibolo Creek Ranch in Shafter, Texas. Conspiracy theorists suspected foul play.
“We discovered the judge in bed, a pillow over his head. His bed clothes were unwrinkled,” John Poindexter, the ranch owner told the San Antonio Express-News, adding that Scalia “was lying very restfully. It looked like he had not quite awakened from a nap.”
