Deadly Opiate Fentanyl Found in Deceased DNC Lawsuit Server Shawn Lucas

Forcing law enforcement to release a cause of death for "You Got Served!" process server Shawn Lucas, the website Heavy reports that the Office of Chief Medical Examiner in Washington D.C. has responded to its queries by stating that Lucas died of an overdose of the powerful and deadly opiate fentanyl.

On July 1, 2016, Lucas served papers on the Democratic National Committee in a lawsuit alleging election-rigging against Bernie Sanders. One month later he was found dead, with no cause of death determination released for months.

With no known history of hard-drug usage or problems with prescription drugs, the DC examiner nevertheless ruled the death of the apparently healthy 38-year old Lucas as an "accident." According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, fentanyl is 50 to 100 times more potent than morphine. Between 2000 and 2017 there have been thousands of known deaths from fentanyl overdose. The synthetic drug is particularly dangerous as a result of a property it possesses of tending to slow down and even completely stop breathing.

Lucas, who is an official civil process server in the state of Florida, filmed himself with the help of a cameraman serving the papers on the DNC. Lucas then posted the visit to DNC headquarters on Youtube, which immediately went viral. Lucas said to his Youtube audience: "That was probably the most satisfying thing I've ever done."

The lawsuit named DNC Chairman and Clinton ally Debbie Wasserman-Schultz and other DNC officials, and was filed on behalf of 121 plaintiffs who had donated to the DNC. The plaintiffs alleged that the committee perpetrated fraud by scheming to ensure the nomination of Hillary Clinton over Bernie Sanders. DNC emails made public by Wikileaks later confirmed the suspicions of donors. The complaint alleges:

"Despite there being every indication that the 2016 Democratic primary would be contested by multiple candidates, including Sanders, the DNC Memo makes no mention of any Democratic candidate except Clinton, and builds the DNC’s election strategy on the assumption that Clinton will be the nominee, with no doubts attached."

Clinton won the Democratic nomination but went on to lose the general election. Head-to-head polls between Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump taken before the general election consistently showed Sanders better equipped to beat Trump, with double-digit leads in poll after poll while Trump closed the gap with Clinton to neck-and-neck.

You Got Served!

Lucas's death was but one in a summer of deaths surrounded by intrigue and suspicion. In August the whistleblower organization Wikileaks posted a $20,000 reward for the killer or killers of Seth Rich, a computer database expert working for the DNC who was murdered in Washington DC, just before the Democratic Convention. Wikileaks had just published a trove of emails belonging to Clinton campaign manager John Podesta and high officials of the DNC, which placed the DNC and Podesta in an extraordinarily embarrassing light. Wikileaks' unprecedented interest in an unsolved Washington, DC street crime has prompted strong speculation that Rich was the source of the summer email leaks, a speculation which Wikileaks has done nothing to discourage..

According to public police reports, Shawn Lucas's girlfriend found him unconscious on the floor of the bathroom at her home in Washington, DC. First responders found no sign of life upon their arrival. In the video of the service process on the DNC, Luca's demeanor is cheerful and happy, and he calls himself "excited" and "thrilled" at his small part in the large-scale class action lawsuit against the DNC. If an autopsy including toxicology had been performed in the days or weeks after his death, authorities sat on the results and findings of Fentanyl until a week before the general election.

      Collateral Justice 

      2 years ago

      Assassination by poison is 100% effective as a warning to not mess with SNC vote rigging and the Clinton connection.

      His name is Seth Rich, one of the continuing Clinton bodies.

      Why follow the money? Just follow the stench of rotting flesh from the Clinton hit list. Thank you FBI, could not be done with out your help!
