The world was stunned on Saturday when Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia suddenly died while staying at a ranch in Texas. Though the authorities were quick to claim he died of natural causes, a statement Scalia made six years ago now has many wondering if he was actually murdered.
The statement was made in a July 2012 interview with Fox News host Chris Wallace, who asked Scalia if he felt any pressure from President Obama to not overturn the Affordable Care Act.
“No,” Scalia replied, according to Conservative Tribune. “What can he do to me? Or to any of us? We have life tenure and we have it precisely so that we will not be influenced by politics, by threats from anybody.”
“Look, the most important role we play and the reason we have life tenure is precisely because now and then, we have to tell the majority, the people that they can’t do what they want to do,” he continued. “That what they want to do is unconstitutional and therefore go away.”

Though the idea that Obama had Scalia murdered four years after this seems a bit farfetched, we wouldn’t put anything past the president. At the very least, the circumstances around Scalia’s death suggests that there is definitely something the government is not telling us.
