The murder of DNC staffer Seth Rich appears to be part of a real conspiracy.
A private investigator named Rod Wheeler hired by the family of murdered Democrat National Committee staffer Seth Rich has said that Rich was in contact with Wikileaks. He has also said that there is an ongoing police cover-up in the murder investigation.
Many believe that Rich was the source of the DNC e-mail leaks that Wikileaks published last year. The leaks exposed the DNC as a corrupt political organization that slanted their nomination process to favor Hillary Clinton.
Clinton blames the leaks – which the entire establishment claims was a “hack” – for her loss in November.
Seth Rich, a Democratic National Committee staffer, was murdered in DC on July 10, 2016. He was shot and killed as he walked home in the Bloomingdale neighborhood, in what DC police have suggested was a botched robbery, but online conspiracy theories have tied the murder to Rich’s work at the DNC.
Rich worked as a data analyst for the Democratic National Committee. He was walking home from a bar, talking to his girlfriend on the phone, when he was shot. As the investigation progressed, police revealed nothing had been taken from Rich during the shooting, and apparently he fought with his assailants.
In a report published Tuesday, Fox News reports Rich sent over 44,000 internal DNC emails to WikiLeaks before he died. The report cites information from a federal investigator who requested to remain anonymous, and Rod Wheeler, a private investigator hired by the Rich family and paid by a third party, who is also a paid Fox News contributor.
Rich’s family, the FBI and the DC police have all denied Wheeler’s claims. The fake news media is also claiming that he is lying. Wheeler is a colored gentleman so maybe these people are just a bunch of horrible racists.
By the way, as Assange has pointed out, the Rich family is being managed by a Democratic party operative group.
Seth Rich's new "family spokesman" is Brad Bauman a professional Democrat crisis PR consultant with the Pastorum Group.

It would make sense if Rich was the source of the leaks, and was then murdered because of it. DC police claimed that his death was due to a botched robbery even though his wallet and cell phone were not stolen. A dubious claim to say the least.
For ethical reasons, Julian Assange will never name the source of his leaks. However, last year he did pretty strongly suggest that it was Rich.
Here’s the transcript:
Assange: “Whistleblowers go to significant efforts to get us material, often very significant risks. There’s a 27-year-old that works for the DNC who was shot in the back, murdered, just two weeks ago, for unknown reasons as he was walking down the street in Washington. So…”
Anchor: “That was just a robbery, I believe, wasn’t it?”
Assange: “No, there’s no finding. So, ah – “
Anchor: “What are you suggesting? What are you suggesting?”
Assange: “I am suggesting that our sources, ah, take risks and they, they become concerned to see things occurring like that.”
Anchor: “But was he one of your sources then, I mean?”
Assange: “We don’t comment on who our sources are.”
Anchor: “But why make the suggestion about a young guy being shot in the streets of Washington?”
Assange: “Because we have to understand how high the stakes are in the United States. Our sources, ah, our sources face serious risks, that’s why they come to us so we can protect, ah, their anonymity.”
Anchor: “But it’s quite something to suggest a murder. That’s basically what you are doing.”
Assange: “Well, others have suggested that. We investigated to understand what happened in that situation, with Seth Rich. I think it is a concerning situation. There is not a conclusion yet. We wouldn’t be willing to say a conclusion yet, but we are concerned about it. More importantly, a variety of WikiLeaks sources are concerned when that kind of thing happens.”
A bounty was also issued by Wikileaks.
ANNOUNCE: WikiLeaks has decided to issue a US$20k reward for information leading to conviction for the murder of DNC staffer Seth Rich.

Assange later upped that to $130,000.
The fake news media and the government have been claiming with no proof – literally, nothing, other than a claim by CrowdStrike, a security firm hired by the DNC, that there was “evidence of malware linked to the FSB” on the server – that Russia hacked the DNC and gave these e-mails to Wikileaks. The FBI never looked at the server themselves, as Comey admitted, claiming that the DNC refused to give it to them.
This is the core of their false narrative. And that narrative represents the main weapon being used to destroy Donald Trump’s presidency.
If it were to be proved the DNC files were leaked instead of hacked, the entire Schiff/Comey/Clapper/Schumer/McCain/Graham kookspiracy about Trump being a Russian agent would collapse in on itself. That’s why there’s been a full court press to debunk Wheeler’s claims – while much of the MSM is simply ignoring the story entirely, instead continuing to be a 24/7 sources of rumors about Russia.
Meanwhile, in the American media…
Although there isn’t any “proof,” there’s much more circumstantial evidence supporting the theory that Rich was killed as part of a conspiracy than there is for any of this Russia nonsense.
- Rich was a dissenter in the DNC, a supporter of Donald Trump
- He was shot twice in the back and nothing was stolen, which doesn’t make sense if it was a “botched robbery”
- Julian Assange, who would know, has basically said outright that he was the leaker
- A private investigator says he’s dug up evidence linking Rich to Wikileaks
The fact that the media is not investigating this with any real seriousness shows exactly why they continue to get called out as fake news.
We need to see the full evidence Wheeler has showing a Rich-Wikileaks connection quickly – before he ends up dead in a “robbery gone wrong.”
Wheeler has now backtracked on his claims, saying he didn’t tell Fox this, Fox told him this.
But Tuesday afternoon, Wheeler told CNN he had no evidence to suggest Rich had contacted Wikileaks before his death.
Wheeler instead said he only learned about the possible existence of such evidence through the reporter he spoke to for the FoxNews.com story. He explained that the comments he made to WTTG-TV were intended to simply preview Fox News’ Tuesday story. The WTTG-TV news director did not respond to multiple requests for comment.
“I only got that [information] from the reporter at Fox News,” Wheeler told CNN.
Asked about a quote attributed to him in the Fox News story in which he said his “investigation up to this point shows there was some degree of email exchange between Seth Rich and Wikileaks,” Wheeler said he was referring to information that had already been reported in the media.
That… doesn’t make any sense.
You can go read the full CNN story if you want, and try to make sense of it. If you want.
But I’m pretty sure you’ll reach the same conclusion.
“I didn’t tell the reporter that… the reporter told me that…”
This statement is basically just more evidence for the theory that Rich did it. He sounds like he’s been threatened.
