When Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia passed away in February 2016 at the Cibolo Creek Ranch in Texas, the circumstances surrounding his death were overwhelmingly suspicious. For one, he was a noted conservative, and Barack Obama was nearing the end of his presidential term and, thus, the span of time when he would have legally been able to appoint a more liberal justice to the bench. Now, two years later, with questions regarding his demise still looming, Justice Scalia has sent President Donald Trump a message from beyond the grave.
It’s no wonder the circumstances surrounding Justice Scalia’s death led to many internet conspiracy theories. He was found dead in Shafter, Texas, at the Cibolo Creek Ranch, which is owned by a Democratic Party donor and Obama award winner. Additionally, Presidio County Judge Cinderela Guevara, another Democrat, pronounced him dead over the phone, without ever seeing his body, which was found with a pillow covering his face, according to The Gateway Pundit.
As speculations continue to circulate regarding what, if any, foul play might have taken place to contribute to Scalia’s death, a new book is being released by the late justice’s friend Bryan Garner. Prior to Scalia’s death, he had revealed his thoughts on then-presidential hopeful Donald Trump to Garner. In his new book, the author explains what his close friend thought of Trump.
“Justice Scalia thought it was most refreshing to have a candidate who was pretty much unfiltered and utterly frank,” said Garner, a legal dictionary editor who spent two weeks in 2016 traveling with Justice Scalia through several Asian countries.
In an interview with The Wall Street Journal prior to the release of his book “Nino and Me,” Garner added that Scalia “was fascinated by the fact that Trump was so outspoken in an unfiltered way, and therefore we were seeing something a little more genuine than a candidate whose every utterance is airbrushed.”
