(TheRedWire.com) – Former President Bill Clinton’s private investigator from 1992 died recently after a botched robbery. Jack Palladino worked for the Clinton campaign in 1992. He was hired to discredit women and squash allegations of improper relationships with then-Governor Bill Clinton. At the time of Palladino’s hiring, 19 women were ready to talk about their alleged affairs with the presidential candidate.
"Jack Palladino himself never carried a gun, which he often said would make his job too easy. His weapon of choice was a camera with a long lens, strapped around his neck — and that may have been what got him killed."

Palladino’s San Francisco law firm was in high demand in the 1990s. Described as “one of America’s most successful investigative agencies,” the firm charged clients from $200 per hour and up to $2,000 a day. In addition to Clinton, Palladino worked for Harvey Weinstein and a teen who accused Michael Jackson of inappropriate conduct with minors.
On the day of his passing, the famed PI took pictures just before two men intent on stealing his camera attacked him. Hours after being taken off life support, Palladino died from a traumatic brain injury. Images from the camera helped identify the two men, leading to their capture. They were charged with robbery and are facing murder charges.
