Seth Rich Was In Contact With WikiLeaks
Good Morning. I’m still reporting on the Clintons.
According to the very reliable TV station Fox Channel 5 in Washington, D.C., Seth Rich, the datacenter manager for the Democratic National Committee, was in contact with WikiLeaks prior to his murder last July 10th at 04:19 am on a Sunday morning just a block from his home.
Rich had apparently been working late in the data center at the DNC and then walked home about 2 directly north of the U.S. Capitol.
Jullian Assange, founder of WikiLeaks, has steadfastly denied that the leaks came from hackers working for the Russian government, but refused to reveal the source.
However during a live interview a month later on a Dutch TV station, known as Nieuwsuur – or NOS – Assange, who was under great pressure from the Dutch interviewer to admit that the Russian government was the source of the leaks, blurted out that the real source of the leak of thousands of Democratic National Committee emails and voicemails was 27-year-old Seth Rich.
The leak caused the resignation of top Democratic party officials, including Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz.
Assange, apparently deeply upset by the murder of Rich, even took the very unusual step of offering a $20,000 reward for anyone who could provide information leading to the arrest and conviction of the perpetrator in the case.
Police who were patrolling in the area, overheard the shots and minutes later discovered Rich had been shot in the back several times, but was still conscious and breathing in the Bloomingdale neighborhood of DC. He died an hour later in the hospital.
Police have suggested that the murder was a botched robbery, however, the killer did not take Rich’s wallet or cell phone.
The death still remains a mystery and DC police initially put up a $25,000 reward for information leading to an arrest, but later raised that to $50,000, not including the $20,000 offered by Assange.
Rich was beloved by all his colleague at the DNC and was probably the only person in a position to take the emails and forward them to Assange, because he had legal access to them. Rich had worked at the DNC for two years as the voter expansion data director.
After our first story came out, SR 1070 on Tuesday, July 26, 2016, IT professionals contacted this reporter and unanimously said that late Saturday night/Sunday morning is the most likely time for a person to breach a data system to copy material.
Last December, Ex-British ambassador, Craig Murray, admitted that he was an intermediary between Assange and the source of the DNC email leaks. In a story in the Daily Mail – a British newspaper, Murray claimed that he flew to Washington and in a clandestine meeting in a wooded area near American University in northwest Washington, D.C. took physical possession of the email trove that came from disgusted whistleblowers inside the DNC who had legal access to the data.
Murray knows he was being closely watched by U.S. intelligence because one of his attempts to enter the U.S. was blocked over the weekend of Sept. 6-7th of 2016.
Why was Murray on their watch list? Because as the British Ambassador to Uzbekistan, Murray had discovered that Muslims were being tortured in that country at the behest of the U.S. and the U.K in an old Stalinist gulag in the middle of the Kyzyl Kum desert.
He released that information and was subsequently removed from his post amid allegations of misconduct. However, he was subsequently cleared of wrongdoing, but his links to Wikileaks today are well known.
In any case, Murray did eventually get into the U.S. and met with someone in the woods near American University. He said that the person he met with was not the original person who obtained the information, but an intermediary.
Murray said that the CIA allegation that Russia was behind the DNC leaks is totally false.
“They are absolutely making it up. I know who leaked them. I’ve met the person who leaked them, and they are certainly not Russian. It’s a leak, not a hack; the two are different things,” said Murray.
Last night, Rod Wheeler, a private investigator hired by the Rich family, and a former D.C. police homicide detective, says that there is tangible evidence on Rich’s laptop that he was in contact with WikiLeaks prior to his death.
Now questions are being raised in Washington why the DC police have insisted this was a robbery when there has been absolutely no evidence suggesting that.
Wheeler believes the police have been told to back down from the investigation and there is a cover-up by the department. According to Wheeler:
“Neither the police department nor the FBI have been forthcoming. They haven’t been cooperating at all.”
Wheeler has been trying to gain access to Seth Rich’s laptop computer seized by the police. Wheeler told Fox 5:
“I have a source inside the police department that has looked at me straight in the eye and said, ‘Rod, we were told to stand down on this case and I can’t share any information with you.’
“Now, that is highly unusual for a murder investigation, especially from a police department. Again, I don’t think it comes from the chief’s office, but I do believe there is a correlation between the mayor’s office and the DNC and that is the information that will come out.”
“I believe that the answer to solving his death lies on that computer, which I believe is either at the police department or at the FBI. I have been told both.”
