Murdered DNC Staffer Seth Rich Shared 44,053 Democrat Emails With WikiLeaks: Report

Tyler Durden's picture

For the past several months, Democrats have based their "Resist 45" movement on unsubstantiated assertions that the Trump campaign coordinated with Russian intelligence officials to undermine the 2016 Presidential Election thereby 'stealing' the White House from Hillary Clinton.  Day after day we've all suffered through one anonymously sourced, "shock" story after another from the New York Times and/or The Washington Post with new allegations of the 'wrongdoing'.

But, new evidence surfacing in the Seth Rich murder investigation may just quash the "Russian hacking" conspiracy theory.  According to a new report from Fox News, it was former DNC staffer Seth Rich who supplied 44,000 DNC emails to WikiLeaks and not some random Russian cyber terrorist, as we've all been led to believe. 

According to Fox News, though admittedly via yet another anonymous FBI source, Rich made contact with WikiLeaks through Gavin MacFadyen, an American investigative reporter and director of WikiLeaks who was living in London at the time.  According to Fox News sources, federal law enforcement investigators found 44,053 emails and 17,761 attachments sent between DNC leaders from January 2015 to May 2016 that Rich shared with WikiLeaks before he was gunned down on July 10, 2016. 

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, law enforcement sources told Fox News.


A federal investigator who reviewed an FBI forensic report detailing the contents of DNC staffer Seth Rich’s computer generated within 96 hours after his murder, said Rich 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.


“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.

Then, on July 22, just 12 days after Rich was killed, WikiLeaks published internal DNC emails that appeared to show top party officials conspiring to stop Bernie Sanders  from becoming the party’s presidential nominee. As we've noted before, the DNC's efforts to block Sanders resulted in Debbie Wasserman Schultz resigning as DNC chairperson.



These new revelations seem to be consistent with the findings of Rod Wheeler, a former DC homicide detective and Fox News contributor, whose private investigation firm was hired by Rich’s family to probe the case.

"My investigation up to this point shows there was some degree of email exchange between Seth Rich and WikiLeaks," Wheeler told Fox News. "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."


“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.”


The botched robbery theory, which police have pursued for nearly a year, isn’t panning out, Wheeler said. 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.

As you'll recall, Rich's death has been shrouded in mystery from the start as he was reportedly shot from behind in the wee hours of the morning but was not robbed of the nearly $2,000 worth of cash and jewelry on his body at the time. 

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.

Shortly thereafter, Julian Assange implied that Seth Rich was, in fact, a source for WikiLeaks and offered a $130,000 reward for information leading to his killer.


Per the Washington Examiner, Rich's family issued the following statement, via a 'spokesman', regarding the recent Fox News reports saying they have seen no evidence of the alleged emails between Seth Rich and WikiLeaks:

"As we've seen through the past year of unsubstantiated claims, we see no facts, we have seen no evidence, we have been approached with no emails and only learned about this when contacted by the press," the statement said. "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 interest in pushing conspiracies will stop at nothing to do so."


"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. The services of the private investigator who spoke to the press was offered to the Rich family and paid for by a third party, and contractually was barred from speaking to press or anyone outside of law enforcement or the family unless explicitly authorized by the family."

But, as WikiLeaks noted, the family's "spokesman" is none other than Democrat crisis PR consultant Brad Bauman.


Seems that not everyone within the FBI is on board with the "Russian hacking" narrative and are finally starting to come forward.

Finally, we find it 'shocking' that while the New York Times, Washington Post, CNN, etc are all too eager to regurgitate each others anonymously sourced stories that are critical of Trump, not a single one of them had a single reference of this Fox News bombshell on their website at the time this article was published.

So the DNC is 100% behind the murder of their own. Nice civilized society we all live in.

The DNC is a criminal organization, and MUST BE CHARGED UNDER RICO. Until this happens, there is no rule of law in the United States.

So you are cool to defend murderers?


You are a sociopath, there is a switch turned off inside you. You are not connected to the rest of us, there is a cold dead space instead. I am very sorry for you. I also know it is pointless to tell you. You don't care. I get it.

Sadly Ms. the USA is full of them.

Mass sociopathy exists, they used to call it jingoism. It crosses party lines.Its a suicidal death cult

with nukes.

Bastiat's picture

There's a difference between jingoism and sociopathy - the jingoists are involved in tribal hysteria, they dreaming; the sociopath is independent and wide-awake but lacking something essentially human: empathy.  The first are hot-blooded lynch-mob killers, the second are cold-blooded.

Podesta Killed him. Anyone who thinks otherwise is a fucking moron.

The "wet work" on Scalia . . . maybe the idea was to get him off the Court in case the election was contested.

Not "maybe"......most definitely.

Clear as day both were murdered for political reasons.

These rotten psychos and freaks like HRC, Podesta, Rice, Abedin, Wasserman Schultz, Brazille are treasonous scum who deserve nothing less than life in prison and maybe even the death penalty.

tmosley's picture

They definitely DESERVE the death penalty, but people don't always get what they deserve.

I would be happy to see them die in prison, or kill themselves ahead of their prosecutions.

tmosley's picture

You know, it's funny. I thought I would go to and see what the opposition take on all this was. Nothing on the front page. Figured they'd keep it quiet. Do a search for "Seth Rich" and what do you know? Apparently they have NEVER published ANYTHING about him, or his name has been completely scrubbed from their site.

This is complicity. I would highly suggest that when the RICO case gets rolling that the various media organizations that helped to cover up DNC crimes should also be prosecuted.

9-11 too, and that's the tell.

were seth rich a russian spy allied with the trump campaign we would have heard about it, in detail, long ago, when he was taken alive for trial.

were the cover story of 9-11 true, the evidence would be here not melted in china, the investigation would have cost a billion dollars not fifteen million (monica's splooged dress and clinton's lies cost 80 million dollars), we would have all the data on the black boxes instead of none of it and all the cameras at the pentagon's pictures instead of one bad one.  

and on and on and on.

Well duhh.

It stinked of cover up from a mile away. I don't know how come it took conservatives so long to bring it forward. GOP and Fox must hate Trump also.

Try Google with this "Seth Rich"

hawaiian waverider's picture

I checked CNN, Wapo and NYT as I doubted they would have nothing on this. Sure enough, not one word.  Nor, not a word about Rand Paul getting unmasked, that is a major deal as well.

Wapo had every headline with Trump in it.  Amazing their ability to project their beliefs publicly as they do and stilll have the balls to think they are "journalists".

Antifaschistische's picture

all this is just one more (unnecessary) piece of evidence that the DNC has compromised almost every form of Law Enforcement in America.   As goofy as Trump can be...I know that if HRC had a bed in the White House, it would have been all over.  Law Enforcement would be completely compromised...and the Supreme Court would have been completely compromised, and the death of America would have been accelerated.   As for now...since the whole world can't figure out Trump, I'm happy that he decelerated the demise....not stopped of course, just decelerated.

Oldwood's picture

One thing for sure. You would have never heard anything from the media except condemnation of conservatives for speaking out against her agenda, much less crimes.

Damn right - aiding and abettng. I made the same search and got the same result.

> This is complicity.

This is an (((op))). Does anyone have any proof that this 'Seth Rich' is dead - or is even a real person to begin with?

Yeah, yeah ... I know. Lots of downhaters. BFD. Does anyone have PROOF? 'cause this whole shitshow smells bad to me.

Spooks, all the way down.

steve golf's picture

easy way to check.  did the DNC acknowledge his death?  If yes, then he was real.


This is a big story but even Fox is backing off.

PrayingMantis's picture


... how important does a person have to be before they are considered assassinated instead of just murdered?


tmosley's picture

One way to find out. Suggest using the DNC, media, and Deep State as a test bed.

steve golf's picture

not very important, but political

DeepFriedLizards's picture

They are killing themselves TMosley.  I've seen two of my former highschool classmates die in the last two months.  One had a heart attack while the other disentagrated on pain killers.

Both were outspoken liberals who shilled for Clinton and then shrieked in despair when she lost the election.  They were consumed by the hatred and lying vitrol instilled by the likes of CNN, MSNBC, Wapo and the NYT.  It saddens me to watch the death of those who buy into the lies of fake media to the point of self destructive obsession.

Ain't no maybe about it, friend.  It was plan b for the election, and then her majesty could appoint a liberal, and then the maryland assault wepons case would hit the now-liberal SC.
SWRichmond's picture

Let's connect some dots, shall we?

Establishment catches wind that explosive information regarding their darling Hillary (and ultimately her involvement in the murder of Seth Rich), and completely destroying their narrative about Russian Hacking of DNC, is about to be released.

Establishment, as always, drives the news cycle with a distraction: in this case, a global hack story which they will trace back to Russia (even though SANS analysis of the malware leads elsewhere).  Interestingly, the hack uses a vulnerability first dev'd by NSA.

As the Seth Rich story begins to build, more and more malware is released, giving Wolf Blitzer and Gabby McCarpetMuncher something to talk about endlessly.

In the meantime, troops are moved about globally in preps for the real distraction.

Scalia's demise had more to do with a Right to Work case that was upcoming at the SUpreme Court. The public service unions would have been gutted beyond repair.

Tijuana Donkey Show's picture

Maybe Scalia was just a fat fuck who couldn't mouth breathe snore. If you are going to whack someone on the court, I'm sure they could have picked better, as he was gonna move on soon enough. Cough, Clarence Thomas, cough.

You must be the Donkey in the Tijuana Donkey Show.  Or maybe you're the donkey's bitch, either way, you're disgusting and worthy of getting railed by a donkey... wait... you are a libtard democrook, so you are definitely the donkey's bitch.  Thanks for clearing that up for us!

oDumbo's picture

The left's murder of Scalia is one of the greatest tragedies that has threatened our republic.  Leftist pigs fucking killed him and it was barely even reported on mainscum media, let alone investigated or even pondered by groups that would have spent years investigating had it been a libtard judge that was murdered.  This is the deep state, government tyranny we now live under.  Enjoy!

That was one little conference he should not have attended.
