DNC staffer Seth Rich contacted Wikileaks before he was murdered #VinceFoster


The despotic Democrats are killing people, literally, while waging a relentless campaign of disinformation and false accusations against President Trump — throwing up every roadblock to stop him from enacting policies he campaigned on, and the American people elected him for. Imagine if we had done this to that traitor Obama. The Democrats would have waged a bloody civil war just as they did against freeing the slaves. And they are waging the same kind of civil war now (also a war against freedom). This, too, will get bloody. How long are we going to put up with this?

We thought it would be better under Trump. On the contrary, the left, complacent about the right under Obama, has sprung into action. Facebook and Twitter, the arena of open ideas and organic communication, has been shut down to us. Our content blocked, our timelines shadow-banned. Universities are in leftist lockdown. Trump supporters are ridiculed, demonized even attacked.

Whoever President picks to head up the FBI, the murder of Seth Rich must be a priority. The party of destruction and murder must be put down.

Seth Rich, slain DNC staffer, had contact with WikiLeaks, say multiple sources

Fox News, May 15, 2017:

The Democratic National Committee staffer who was gunned down on July 10 on a Washington, D.C., street just steps from his home had leaked thousands of internal emails to WikiLeaks, investigative sources told Fox News.

A federal investigator who reviewed an FBI forensic report — generated within 96 hours after DNC staffer Seth Rich’s murder — detailing the contents Rich’s computer said he made contact with WikiLeaks through Gavin MacFadyen, a now-deceased American investigative reporter, documentary filmmaker, and director of WikiLeaks who was living in London at the time.

“My investigation up to this point shows there was some degree of email exchange between Seth Rich and WikiLeaks.”

– Rod Wheeler, former DC homicide investigator

“I have seen and read the emails between Seth Rich and WikiLeaks,” the federal investigator told Fox News, confirming the MacFadyen connection. He said the emails are in possession of the FBI, while the stalled case is in the hands of the Washington Police Department.

The revelation is consistent with the findings of Rod Wheeler, a former DC homicide detective and Fox News contributor and whose private investigation firm was hired by a third party on behalf of Rich’s family to probe the case. Rich was shot from behind in the wee hours, but was not robbed.

“My investigation up to this point shows there was some degree of email exchange between Seth Rich and WikiLeaks,” Wheeler said. “I do believe that the answers to who murdered Seth Rich sits on his computer on a shelf at the DC police or FBI headquarters.”

The federal investigator, who requested anonymity, said 44,053 emails and 17,761 attachments between Democratic National Committee leaders, spanning from January 2015 through late May 2016, were transferred from Rich to MacFadyen before May 21.

On July 22, just 12 days after Rich was killed, WikiLeaks published internal DNC emails that appeared to show top party officials conspired to stop Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont from becoming the party’s presidential nominee. That controversy resulted in Debbie Wasserman Schultz resigning as DNC chairperson. A number of Sanders supporters refused to back party nominee Hillary Clinton, and some subsequently formed groups to work against Clinton and the party.

WikiLeaks leader Julian Assange has stopped short of identifying Rich as the source of the emails, but has taken a keen interest in the case, and has not denied working with Rich.

“WikiLeaks has decided to issue a US$20k reward for information leading to conviction for the murder of DNC staffer Seth Rich,” the organization announced.

Washington’s Metropolitan Police Department has no suspects and no substantial leads as to who the killer or killers may be, sources close to the investigation said. Metropolitan Police, including the police chief, have refused to discuss the case, despite requests from Fox News dating back 10 months.

The department released a statement on the case saying it remains an active investigation and that detectives are working with Rich’s family.

“If there are any individuals who feel they have information, we urge them to call us at (202) 727-9099 or text us at 50411,” read the statement. “The department is offering a reward of up to $25,000 for information on this case that leads to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible.”

The FBI’s national office declined to comment, but sources said the bureau provided cyber expertise to examine Rich’s computer.

Wheeler believes powerful forces are preventing the case from a thorough investigation.

“My investigation shows someone within the D.C. government, Democratic National Committee or Clinton team is blocking the murder investigation from going forward,” Wheeler told Fox News. “That is unfortunate. Seth Rich’s murder is unsolved as a result of that.”

A spokesman for the Rich family said Wheeler was not authorized to speak for the family and called assertions Seth Rich sent emails to WikiLeaks “unsubstantiated.” Brad Bauman said even if purported emails were to surface, it would not necessarily mean Rich had helped WikiLeaks.

“Even if tomorrow, an email was found, it is not a high enough bar of evidence to prove any interactions as emails can be altered and we’ve seen that those interested in pushing conspiracies will stop at nothing to do so,” Bauman said. “We are a family who is committed to facts, not fake evidence that surfaces every few months to fill the void and distract law enforcement and the general public from finding Seth’s murderers.”

Whatever Rich’s possible activities prior to his murder, the case remains a mystery.

Two assailants caught on a grainy video tape from a camera posted outside a grocery mart, shot Rich twice in his back, but did not take his wallet, cell phone, keys, watch or necklace worth about $2,000.

Police should consider all angles, Wheeler said, especially in light of Assange’s statements to a Dutch television reporter who asked about Rich.

“I am suggesting,” Assange told the Dutch reporter, “that our sources take risks, and they, they become concerned to see things occurring like that.”

On Twitter, WikiLeaks announced the reward but said Assange’s statement “should not be taken to imply that Seth Rich was a source for WikiLeaks or to imply that his murder is connected to our publications” because WikiLeaks has a policy not to release the names of its sources, even after their death.

In subsequent appearances on Fox News Channel, Assange confirmed, “We’re interested in anything that might be a threat to alleged WikiLeaks sources.”

Assange has not returned a series of recent emails from Fox News about Rich. MacFadyen, who was considered a mentor by Assange, died of lung cancer on Oct. 22 at age 76.

D.C. police have announced a $25,000 reward for information leading to the conviction of Rich’s killer. Republican lobbyist Jack Burkman has offered a separate $130,000 reward.

Rich had been at Lou’s City Bar a couple of miles from his home until about 1:15 a.m. He walked home, calling several people along the way. He called his father, Joel Rich, who he missed because he had gone to sleep. He talked with a fraternity brother and his girlfriend, Kelsey Mulka.

Around 4:17 a.m., Rich was about a block from his home when Mulka, still on the phone with him, heard voices in the background. Rich reassured her that he was steps away from being at his front door and hung up.

Two minutes later, Rich was shot twice. Police were on the scene within three minutes. Rich sustained bruising on his hands and face. He remained conscious, but died at a nearby hospital less than two hours later.

Police detectives will not say whether Rich provided them with any clues about the identity of his attackers or their motivation, Wheeler said. However, Wheeler believes Rich could have provided information prior to his death of who was responsible for carrying out his murder.

Police also have refused to release security footage from a market on the corner of the crosswalk where Rich was killed. The footage, sources told Fox News, shows two people following Rich across the tiny crosswalk just moments before he was attacked. The camera captured grainy footage of the assailants’ legs and Rich as he fell backward into the street after being shot.

    The hardcore left is a clear and present danger to this republic.

    People, this article brings to light just a small part of the problems this country is facing from those within “the swamp” who will do anything to retain and promote their power. The conduct of these very dangerous power mongers can be seen in the universities, among the leadership of the Democratic party, in the groups calling themselves “black lives matter,” and other ultra-liberal groups who cannot recognize that they are overwhelmed by their political correctness and Islamophobia to disable them from dealing with the reality of our times, in the leaks of anything that will enable the bias press to accuse the POTUS of treasonous conduct, all of which is being channeled to impeach our President and replace him with someone they think they can better control. They have already succeeded in shutting down Bill O’Reilly, and General Flynn, and the saga continues. I am so mortified with the conduct of these participants in this “espionage” that I now have no place to turn too to get the truth. To me, the reason for these problems can be traced to the fact that those who now live within the swamp are entrenched, and long ago should have been swept away. Being a politician as a full time and permanent job was never the expectation when it came to participating in government. It was always recognized that staying in any elected office too long was an avenue to despotic behavior. That has become the rule, not the exception. We need to support the “Convention of the States” which will enable the people to limit the terms of those elected to public office, and take such other actions to amend our Constitution that will strengthen the people’s control of the government, and reinforce that those elected are in office to serve the people, not themselves. The youth and future generations will be best be served if we can remove those who infest the swamp, and I implore all those out there who agree to actively do what they can to clean out the swamp ASAP.

    Murdering people for having other opinions than the approved party line, is very democrat, communist and muslim. There is going to be major trouble if the legal industry, police and courts, do not start enforceing the law, to everyone, including high ranking democrats.

  • Drifter12

    It is better under Trump. The people who care are more aware now and the America hating left & their establishment Republican go-along minions are are right out in the open, where they can be easily seen…and identified. The swamp is still waiting.

  • Crystal Waters

    The unsolved murder of Seth Rich should have been a huge mainstream media story. I was shocked that no one appeared interested. Thats when I knew that the swamp was bigly.

  • Midnattsol

    If it was anyone else who murdered him would be all over the news.

  • Robinske2

    I’ve suspected for some time that the DNC is an organization similar to what was portrayed on the movie The Devil’s Advocate. Over 40 associates of the Clinton’s met an eerie and early demise. Also, there was another Democrat whistleblower who had is neck crushed in a “Weight room accident” last summer as well. One email that didn’t get much traction from last summer’s wickileaks dump was one from Podesta’s brother about an upcoming Satanic ritual. The leader’s of the Democrat party are doing Satan’s bidding in our nation- the DNC booed God and are in total unison in opposing anything that is in the Christian Bible. They do however seem to love Islam- the religion likely the false religion practiced by the coming Anti-Christ.

    • Bronish

      Robinske2….how very insightful of you. You know, I keep forgetting about the Satanic links that the Left has forged. But, of course! That’s why so much outright lawlessness and free-wheeling murder. The Left has their agenda, and death to those who dare to step in their way.
      The Swamp Critters, the Clinton’s, the Obama’s all dovetail nicely with the murderous and deceptive cult of Islam.
      It does make sense. Very evil and immoral, but it makes sense.

      One of the Clinton Foundation’s victims shot himself in the back. Another shot himself twice in the head.

  • AlgorithmicAnalyst

    “Who will rid me of this meddlesome priest” :)

    Simplest explanation is a professional hit. People at the top don’t have to give explicit orders, just say “this guy is a problem”, and their thugs several layers removed take the hint, giving the people at the top plausible deniability.

    • Drew the Infidel

      Agreed, but what is puzzling is the secretive nature surrounding the family members. They have publicly stated former DC homicide detective Rod Wheeler, who is conducting an independent investigation, is not authorized to speak on their behalf. Why? Have they been bribed or threatened? If someone made such an overture to me after my relative was murdered, I would shoot them regardless and let the chips fall.

    • marlene

      Exactly. My comment, above: John Podesta, the pedophile, ordered the hit. In his Feb 2015 Wikileaks email to Robby Mook, he wrote: “I’m definitely for making an example of a suspected leaker whether or not we have any real basis for it.” Mook responded: “I agree…And I would love an example being made.”

      Zero…and counting.

  • Dave Mc

    Waiting for snopes to edit their page on Seth. To this point they’ve brushed off any association between Wikileaks and Seth. Because that would be a motive for his murder, and point in a particular direction.

  • santashandler

    Someone bumped off to keep him quiet. Nothing new.

  • Tonya Parnell

    Seth Rich still had all his jewelry on him, including billfold with cash/cards and laptop; however, 2 bullets in the back, police says robbery. IT WAS MURDER

  • WHO KILLED JOHN F. KENNEDY? Guest: Dr. Jerome Corsi

  • Drew the Infidel

    If you check the record you will find that anyone who allowed Hillary to get too close to them or to get her hooks into them wound up dead. In addition to Rich, there is Vince Foster, four unfortunate souls at Benghazi, Qaddafi, and countless others whose careers she has ruined. The b*tch is pure evil. No wonder her husband is a serial philanderer.

  • Beverly

    Hmm. Reminds me of the death of Andrew Breitbart who died of a “heart attack”.

  • Merchantseamen

    No doubt it was a hit. Wikileaks should release any and all info given to them from Seth Rich. There are so many cover ups at so many levels. We are slowly drowning in the muck of the swamp. “A giant sucking sound.” You young people do you do you remember who said that? I do.

    • marlene

      Wikileaks did release emails incriminating John Podesta, the brutal pedophile, in the death of a “leaker.” See Feb 2015 Wikileaks email from John Podesta to Robby Mook. And there are more.
