Seth Rich was a DNC Staffer
Seth Rich was employed by the Democratic National Committee. In the early morning hours of July 10, 2016, Rich was shot twice in the back a block from his home in Bloomingdale, Washington D.C. Rich was rushed to the hospital where he later died from his wounds. Police stated that Seth Rich may have been killed as the result of an attempted armed robbery, as robberies had recently plagued the area. There were signs of a struggle, His hands, knees, and face were bruised, and the strap on his watch was torn. Homicides in Washington D.C. are a fairly common occurrence with 134 in 2016. The Seth Rich murder, while tragic, was just a footnote during a crazy campaign season.
What raised some eyebrows with this murder, is just 12 days later, on July 22nd, Wikileaks released their first batch of hacked DNC emails. It was by no means a smoking gone, but the fact that Rich was a DNC staffer was definitely a connection.
Was Seth Rich a DNC Whistleblower?
For me, this is where the story gets interesting. Not because Seth Rich worked at the DNC. But because there have been a lot of big stories in the News recently. An Anonymous source tells the Washington Post President Trump leaked classified information to the Russians during a meeting in the Oval Office. The Post runs the story without even speaking with anyone who was physically there (all of whom denied anything inappropriate occurred). A few days later another anonymous source claims to have notes from former FBI Director James Comey regarding a meeting with the President during which the President attempted to obstruct justice by asking Comey to back off the investigation of General Flynn. The New York times never sees these “notes”, never questions why Comey did not immediately come forward with this “crime” as he was legally obligated to do. The Times just ran the story.
Seth Rich and Wikileaks
Now compare that to the mainstream medias response to a private investigator, working on the Seth Rich murder who claims to have an FBI source who claims there are confirmed connections between Seth Rich and Wikileaks. Julian Assange has always denied any connections to Russia. Assange has all but named Seth Rich as his source, but this story is just a “conspiracy theory” by far Right loons.
The same media whom devote 90% of their airtime with any crazy story they can find that is negative about President Trump, finds any story that could reflect poorly on the Democrat Party, to be a “conspiracy theory”. A tactic made famous by Hillary Clinton when she referred to “the vast right wing conspiracy” trying to take down her husband Bill with that crazy Monica story. Well we all know now, that story was true, not a conspiracy. The story of the DNC rigging the primary for Hillary against Bernie was a conspiracy too, until it was proven to be true with the same leaked emails we a talking about now.
Of course, President Trump colluding with Russians, that is a factual claim even though after 10 months of investigating there has been 0 evidence to support that claim. So, yeah, I am a little interested in this Seth Rich story. This is not the first death to happen that has a connection to Hillary Clinton. Of course all the others are “conspiracies” as well.
One last thing that peaked my interest in the Seth Rich murder. The claim of a connection to Wikileaks has renewed interest in this unsolved murder, and now most of the media is highlighting stories of how the family of Seth Rich thinks those connection stories are lies and are even threatening to sue one news agency if they do not retract their story about it.
How many times have you seen the parents of the victim of an unsolved murder, out there publicly trying to persuade the news to stop looking into it and reporting on it. Even if there is no connection to Wikileaks, would not the parents want any attention they could get to keep people interested in their sons unsolved murder? I find that part of this story incredibly odd.
The implications if this is not just a “Conspiracy”.
Think about it. If Seth Rich was the one who provided those emails to Wikileaks. Remember those first emails were about the DNC rigging the primary against Bernie Sanders. Maybe Rich was feeling the Bern and felt as a loyal Democrat he had to do something. It really is not that far fetched. If it really was him, that means Assange was telling the truth and the whole story about the Russian interference into our election was a lie from the very beginning. That would be a monster size scandal and recently, karma has not been good to the Democrats.
