Wikileaks' Assange Hints Murdered DNC Staffer Was Email-Leaker, Offers $20k Reward For Info

Tyler Durden's picture

The mysterious circumstances surrounding the death of 27-year-old Democratic-staffer Seth Rich (shot multiple times, and not robbed, at 420am near his home in Washington D.C., where no homicides have been reported within 1500 feet) have stirred Wikileaks founder Julian Assange to offer a $20,000 reward for information leading to a conviction. But it is Assange's comments during a Dutch TV interview that are most disturbing as he hinted that Rich - who was in charge of DNC voter expansion data - was the email-leaker and his death was a politically-motivated assassination.

As The Hill notes, Police in Washington have been tight-lipped about the Rich investigation but have suggested they believed the crime was a robbery.

Just last week, D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier said it was possible that Rich was killed in an attempted robbery. She spoke at an event with Rich’s mother, and both made a plea for tips that might help solve the case.


There have been 77 homicides in Washington in 2016, though Rich’s death is the only one recorded in the last year within 1,500 feet of where he was killed.

And so , Julian Assange has offered a reward...

But it was his comments during a recent Ducth TV interview that are more disturbing as conspiracy theory morphs into conspiracy fact one again... (via

Within hours of the event alternative media reporters began to suspect something was amiss, as police had no witnesses, no suspects and no motive. This led to theories that Rich, who was in charge of voter expansion data at the DNC, may have been killed to cover something up. Subsequent reports even suggested Rich may have been on his way to speak with special agents at the Federal Bureau of Investigation regarding an “ongoing court case.”

Though the reports were initially dismissed as conspiracy theory, perhaps the one person who could confirm that Rich was in fact a whistle blower may have just done so. None other than Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, in an interview with Nieuwsurr, said that his organization is investigating the death of Seth Rich and, somewhat cryptically, tied Rich to Wikileaks. And though Assange wouldn’t directly admit Rich was the source, perhaps because he himself didn’t know the true identify of his source until material stopped flowing or contact was lost, he implies that Seth Rich’s murder may have been a politically-motivated assassination:

Assange: Whistleblowers go to significant efforts to get us material and often significant risks. There was a 27-year old that works for the DNC who was shot in the back… murdered.. for unknown reasons as he was walking down the street in Washington.


Host: That was just a robbery wasn’t it?


Assange: No. There’s no finding.


Host: What are you suggesting?


Assange: I am suggesting that our sources take risks and they become concerned to see things occurring like that.


Host: But was he one of your sources, then?


Assange: We don’t comment on who our sources are.


Host: But why make the suggestion?


Assange: Because we have to understand how high the stakes are in the United States and that our sources face serious risks… that’s why they come to us so we can protect their anonymity.


Host: But it’s quite something to suggest a murder… that’s basically what you’re doing.

Watch the entire exchange:

Finally we note that Joel Rich, Seth’s father, ruled out robbery in an interview with local affiliate KMTV.

“If it was a robbery, it failed, because he still had his watch, he still had his money, he still had his credit cards, still had his phone, so it was a wasted effort except we lost a life.”

As we detailed previously, the Clinton related body count so far this election cycle:  Five in just under six weeks - four convenient deaths plus one suicide...

1) Shawn Lucas, Sanders supporter who served papers to DNC on the Fraud Case (DOD August 2, 2016)


2) Victor Thorn, Clinton author (and Holocaust denier, probably the least credible on this list) shot himself in an apparent suicide. Conspiracy theorists at Mystery Writers of America said some guys will do anything to sell books. (DOD August, 2016)


3) Seth Conrad Rich, Democratic staffer, aged 27, apparently on his way to speak to the FBI about a case possibly involving the Clintons. The D.C. murder was not a robbery. (DOD July 8, 2016)


4) John Ashe, UN official who allegedly crushed his own throat while lifting weights, because he watched too many James Bond films and wanted to try the move where the bad guy tries to…oh, never mind. “He was scheduled to testify against the Clintons and the Democrat Party.” (DOD June 22, 2016)


5) Mike Flynn, the Big Government Editor for Breitbart News. Mike Flynn’s final article was published the day he died, “Clinton Cash: Bill, Hillary Created Their Own Chinese Foundation in 2014.” (DOD June 23, 2016)

It must be coincidence, right?

Hillary Clinton has basically admitted she is a criminal out of ignorance, so is any of these "incidents" shocking as she is in the running?

Thorn was perhaps the most credible victim on the list. But, because he questioned the Holocaust myth, he's demoted to least credible. So typical, yet telling.

If they get close to the assassin they will find the assassin has committed suicide and the trail will end there.  The Clintons are experts at elimination - as good or better than the CIA.


Herd Redirection Committee's picture

The Clintons and Bushes signed an alliance back in 1990, if not earlier.

The Bushes (esp. 'Poppy' Bush) have more say, or did, over the years, in the CIA than any other royal family.  Uuh, I mean nobility.  Shit... Political dynasty?

So that explains the Clinton's adeptness at CIA tactics.  Hell, they might even just be outsourcing the work to 'em!

Yo! Dipshit! Shot in the back IS a murder weather Assange “suggests” it or not.

The Clintons were working for Bushes back in Arkansas. Mena, anyone?

Come on already.

"Signed an alliance." LOL

Tell me about Barry Seal, Iran-Contra, Mena, Freeway Rick, Gary Webb, Arkansas Development Finance Authority, Whitewater, Rose, Webster, etc.

Bill has been a company man for a LONG  time as have the Bushes and Obola.  They are all NeoCons.  The bUshes aka Mormon Hinckleys/Romneys troied to kill off Reagan and almost succeeded. Hinckleys?  Ran mormon church and See EYe AAA front World Vision which is also connected to the Clinton Foundation. 

The rumor was Bill's real dad was a minor Arkansas Rockefeller.

The See Eye AAAye was propbaby created by the Rockefellers as Mi6 is Rothschild creation.   David R was an OSS agent during WW2.  Don't forget the Rockefellers donated the land for the UN Bldg.

The Saint:

What this shows is that the US government is running assasination squads through the FBI. Remember the friend of the Boston Bombers that was being interviewed in his living room by two MA State Troopers, and an FBI agent?

The two troopers decided to go into the guy's kitchen together. That's the giveaway about what is really going on.

LEOs NEVER leave a LEO one-on-one with a interviewee. First, you want a witness to what the interviewee said, but second and way more important, you want extra muscle there in case the interviewee attacks the interviewing LEO.

According to the FBI assasin, who put five bullets into the Bombers' friend, the friend attacked him with a knife and he murdered the friend in self-defense. The troopers were in the kitchen, so only the surviving assasin is a witness to the murder.

The only problem is that the dumb-ass FBI murderer forgot to bring a knife to plant on the murder victim. So within hours, the official story changed to the friend attacked the FBI hit-man with his bare hands. So, of course, the only chance the FBI murderer had to survive was to plant five bullets in the friend!

Now it never came up that the assasin could have yelled for help from the troopers - no, they testified in Round Two of giving statements, that they heard a scuffle, but for some reason didn't react to that sound. No, they just chilled out while they listened to five shots go off, at which time they thought they had better see what was happening.

Yeah, that's the lackidasical way LEOs always protect each others' backs . . .

So, it's a short trip from Boston to DC, however, it's mure likely that the FBI has a fair sized squad or even a batallion-sized unit to carry outmurders whenever Loretta decides to authorize it.

Of course, that's not the real world scary part of all this; the scary part is finally coming to accept that the US is now on the same level as Russia, China, and a long-list of other countries where political assasination is a regular occurance.

Deal with it: Five murders in six weeeks of individuals all related by their involvment with putting the Clintons in jail is not a coincidence. It is a message that the Clintons and the Bushs are not just above the law - they are the Law.

Onama got behind Hillary because he knows life is cheap for the Clintons, and they will kill him if he doesn't obey. He also knows there is no one he can trust to protect him - not the Secret Service, and certainly not the FBI, which we now know that along with the DOJ, is run by the Clintons. Bill wasn't talking grandchildren to Loretta - he was talking about whether she wanted to live or die, based on Hillary being indicted.

Loretta got the idea, let Comey know she is in-line, since we all know Comey has a long history of getting the Clintons out of trouble . . . and you didn't actually think they were going to let some Black woman actually have all that power, did you?

With this FBI assasination, the America you learned about, and lived, died along with Seth Rich. This isn't America, the light upon the hill; this is America, a murderous collection of criminally insane psychopaths eliminating anyone who gets in the way. And they know there is no one in any law enforcement agency in the country that they don't run - and therefore they know no one is going to stop them.

Everyone just got the message: Crazy Hillary will kill you. That's the ony message you can take away from five murders in six weeks, all involving indiviuals preparing to put the Clintons in jail.

Our female Hitler is calling the shots . . . literally.

So was Obama.

So was Bush, Jr.

So was Clinton.

So was Bush, Sr.

So was Carter.

So was Reagan.

So was Ford.

So was Nixon.

So was Johnson.

The last President that was actually elected, and actually protected the interests of US sovereigns was JFK.

Freddie's picture

Correct about JFK.  I am not sure about Reagan. The Bushes, Mormon Hinckleys and their all mutual friends Romneys tred to kill Reagan. Hinckleys ran the Mormon Cjhurch and run Wold Vision aka a See Eye AaA front that is connected to hit teams and also the Clinton Foundation.

Puppy Bush tried to get Reagan moved to Bethesda where a lot of people end up dead like Sen Joe McCarthy and Sec Forresstal.  Bethesda was JFK's head wounds were reworked.

Dr. Joseph Giordano, head of surgery at Geo Washington Hospital refused to have Reagan moved to Bethesda probably saving Reagan's life a second time.

THe two that kiled him were likely lower life forms, expendables they were tasked

to find any computer device/thumb drive whatever they could and absent that killed him.

too dumb to make it look like a robbery or whatever.

If it makes sense, it's probably true.  When it doesn't make sense, you are being lied to, the info is spun, or you have only half the information.

Well more to like 42 degrees as the bodies are refrigerated at the morgue. But that is quite a chilling effect.

GadExp's picture

Do a tiny bit of research.  People who believe the holocaust narrative are in the same camp as those who believe the official 9/11 narrative.  


I don't know of a single person who has put forth a diligent effort to study the holocaust (or 9/11) who still believes the official narrative.


All you are saying is, "I haven't studied the topic yet.  But I am so obtuse that I have to condemn others who have."

Jumping in a little late here...  Please state the "official narrative" of the holocaust in two paragraphs or less (simplify it if need be).  I want to see this false, official, narrative so that I can decide for myself.

GadExp's picture

The Official Narrative is the same thing that we all learned in grade school - Hilter rounded up the Jews into concentration camps and murdered 6 million of them through starvation, abuse, shootings, gasing, experimentation, and torture.  One of Hitler's primary goals was to exterminate the Jewish race.


Basically everyone from the WWII generations forward were raised on this narrative.  Not a single bit of it is true.  Not one bit.


Someone can show you a picture of a buring building and tell you that an arson caused the fire.  But you can't logically state that you KNOW that an arson caused the fire unless you confirm the facts yourself.  The truth about WWII events in Germany have been intentionally distorted.  Unfortunately, the masses so infrequently work to verify information that the false narrative was easily created...and is even more easily perpetuated today.


The truth is not difficult to find.  But you have to first comprehend these two facts: 1.  There are people in the world who are highly motivated to decieve the public, and 2. These people have the resources and means necessary to accomplish the deception.  


Arguing the truth of these two facts may be the easiest debate I have ever participated in.

LowerSlowerDelaware_LSD's picture
LowerSlowerDelaware_LSD (not verified) GadExp Aug 10, 2016 4:09 PM

Interesting take on things.  I'll have to look into it some more.  Having been to Dachau and have seen the ovens, pictures, and documentation I have to wonder why Germany would allow all of the false/fake documentation and concentration camp to stand.  Are the Jews forcing Germany to keep shaming themselves over something that didn't happen?  Did the Jews generate all of the fake pictures and documentation about the camp and war?

GadExp's picture

Right.  The ovens, pictures, and documents are not what they are presented to be.  Google "CIVIL WAR typhus victim" images


Germany has paid almost $100 Billion in compensation to Jews since WWII - tons of cash floating around on this topic.  


When Germany was defeated they were almost completely exterminated.  THIS is where the real massacres of the 1940's occured!  We're talking about terrible human rights violations - intentional mass starvations, mass displacement of families, mass slave labor, women getting raped hundreds of times then nailed to the barn doors... - all by the allied armies! (But nobody hears this part.)


Personal interviews with concentration camp survivors.



For a couple of videos that present some basic facts, consider these two clips. (The presentation isn’t my favorite, but they give a good flavor of some of the lies.)  (Don’t mind the voice on the second clip – it’s a computerized voice that sounds kind of weird.) 


Communism exterminated almost100 million people in the 1900's...and yet the US was allied with the USSR!!!  For background about how Communism was created by US support, consider this interview of Dr. Antony Sutton, one of the top three authorities on the subject. 

For an interesting perspective from a prominent Catholic bishop, consider this interview,
