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.

No difference to the victims to be sure.  But a distinction with a great deal of difference (and importance) if you ever find yourself dealing with a sociopath.

I deal with sociopaths every day.I have 7 multibillionaires in my stable of clients, some with other

complaints superimposed on their sociopathy.

SWRichmond's picture

yes, extremely rich people are all dangerously nuts.  This is why the power of government is supposed to be limited.

Winston Churchill's picture

The multi billionaires are completely different from say guys with a couple of hundred million.

I have both.The mere multi millionaires are happy with their money.The multi billlionaires are in it for

the power that money brings. Not all but 5/7 of mine.

sociopath means exactly the same as psychopath

it's just meant to be more PC

the next step on the scale are Narcissists - the only diffference between them and psychos is that they actually care about being liked. Psychos definitely don't care at all, althought they usually learn to act well (depending on the context of their plots/victims). 

they will 'be' anything you want them to be - caring, 'just like you!'...whatever - i.e. Hitlery during her campaign

Give Me Some Truth's picture

And they all tend to somehow migrate into the same type professions/fields. Self-selection.

Alfred's picture

No... They are not the same.


A psychopath is not capable of an emotional response, a sociopath just doesn't give a fuck about your emotional response. Very different, albeit very dangerous creatures...

Killdo's picture

according to this woman from Harvard (I reccomend this book it's a great itro  - based on real life events  - from her experience with working with victims of psychos) - the 2 terms mean the same:

I read anotehr 2 books by the guy who invented teh Psychopath Test (I think his name is Richard Hare) - he said the same thing. 

emersonreturn's picture

the difference between a sociopath & psychopath is the psychoptath plans, thinks long & hard about what they want to do & how they will gain what they want.  sociopath is spontaneous, reacts, plunders, makes a mess.  neither care a fig about others, neither have a conscience, both study how to affect one.  both are very good actors, generally totally believed.

here is a real life story involving psychos (and part of it happened in my garden in venice Beach) -

Bastiat, excellent points.

I have to ask everyone... is anyone *really** surprised a bunch of Luciferian conmpletely innocent child sacrificers would put out a "hit" on someone who was working agains their agenda?

Body Language: Dutch Whistleblower

Ultimate Red Pill: Ronald Bernard Whistle Blower Testimony [English Voice Over]

Seriously people, time to grow up and put "big boy" pants on these.

The Debt-Money Monopolists murder 30 million people a year or more through their debt-money system of fraud that they pay people like Krugman to cover up...

Krugman to Lietaer: "Never touch the money system!"

Homework - they run the major drug cartels, they launder the major drug cartel money, they use the military to protect their drug plantations, they run the white slavery, they cover for the white slavery, they finance and whip up terrorism, they've systematically impoverish billions of people...  and on and on and on...

And you don't even want to know how they duped you into not comprehending how the mineral and vitamin content of your body activate the energy glands and optiomize the enzymes.  You probably don't even know that enzymes are involved in the creation of every single hormone in your body and every single neurotransmitter in your body.  You probably don't even know the most important mineral in glycolysis, the Kreb's cycle, and electron transport chain...

And by "you" I mean Rockefeller Medicine Men (and Women)...  the actual doctors who stand guard over the illness maintenance and profit maximization systems that pose as "health care" systems.

Ah, who cares about something trivial like the energy generation system in every single live cell in the body.  That's got to be a "conspiracy theory" and can't possibly be science.  Errr, psyence.  Cells don't need no stinkin' energy, so the minerals and vitamins that make it happen aren't even worth discussing.  Or the impact of stress on those minerals.  Don't know that, either, do ya?  Your not supposed to, Mr., Mrs., and Ms. Rockefeller Medicine Agent.

'Government ' and 'nation' have been used as cover to hide behind by psychopaths for thousands of years. It is the way the few get the many to do their bidding and their dirty work.- - The American people have been in a fog regarding the true nature of 'their government' for many generations. It reached a particularly bad level during the Civil War and has gotten only worse since then. Some, but not all, the American founders sought to limit the power and scope of those acting in the name of 'government '. Unlike the current public 'schooled' generation, those men knew something about history.

Seth's parents seem to care more about party image than who killed their son. 

FlKeysFisherman's picture

They might have woken up next to a horse's head and decided they want to live.

Oquities's picture

perhaps a hacker will find out who paid for Seth's funeral expenses and if his parent's are receiving any kind of financial assistance otherwise from DNC..

RiverRoad's picture

Like Hinkley's parents?

Yes, there is something wrong with their response, and why would they be tentative and hesitant to have a private investigator look deeper into their son's murder?

Because the Hush-Money check cleared...that or they got a pic of their dead son with a "you could be next" comment on it...

Makes me sad and ill to think how desperately the majority reaches for the kool-aid. The enabling of truly dark agents by the complacent public when viewed through a spiritual lense, is repugnant. Thousands of years in practice or not, such frustration comes of realizing that  the shining of light and mass revelation to this wickedness; would largely aid in defeating it. Instead, it is tacitly accepted as 'the way it is,' through vehicles of ignorance and rationalization. Even worse is to watch people actually cheer for those keeping the curtain down. While conciously they are deceived, I can't help but revile the implicit spirtual cowardice.

Killdo's picture

lots of parents do - I know a few whose (dead) children were proud atheists - parents did not care and had their funeral/service performed in a church. 

Parents normally care more about their own image

In my expereince most brave , rebellious kids have parents who are the oposite

"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."


So basically ~ 'Homeschooling' is a decent idea on paper and has benefits, but then, there are the inevitable dots on the "x" & "y" axis that just make you want to question everything. & naturally, you should question everything, but sadly the eager button pushers (as, for example, the users of the REPORT click function right here on this site), outnumber the 'question everything'-ers.

Homeschooling has nothing the fuck to do with sociopathy, you degenerate fuckwad.

The only thing they care about is getting their free shit. Work is not in their vocabulary, and they don't know what a blister from working is, unless its from jacking their master off.

If Seth Rich provided the emails to Wikileaks AND was killed by his own people, the Democratic Party is done.  This is fucking YUGE!  In one fell swoop it would prove the conspiricy to blame the Russians and defame Trump and trying to cover up their own faiures with murder.  Wow, who is at the tip of this spear....some devious Machevellian motherfucker for sure.  

This is why the Dems were so scared of Trump being elected..and COmey being fired...the dirt is finally starting to come out.  It's till early, but I only hope this is true and not a distraction from the lame stream clickbait press daily Trump bullshit.

LOL. not if it ain't reported, they aren't. guess what? IT WON'T BE REPORTED. and despite all the sound & fury at ZH and the blogosphere, I'd bet not 2 people in 100 are even aware of this story; much less Pizzagate

so maybe d. john t. could put something on twitter.  no, scratch that.

let's empanel a grand jury with an actual member of the trump administration (as opposed to "the resistance") as prosecuting attorney.

You are watching a third party in it's genesis.  That is what the Deep State will reap for their efforts.

The buck doesn't stop with the DNC.  Look at the cover up that's going on all around you.  The DNC can't do that.

tmosley's picture

They most assuredly can. They are in deep with the Deep State, just like the Bush faction of the GOP was.

Thought Processor's picture



It's an informal network.  It owes allegience to neither the DNC or the GOP.

Pretty much. It is a second government, not one of laws, but of men.

It must be dismantled.

"It is a second government, not one of laws, but of men."

Perhaps the best summation I've heard.  Nice.  I would imagine the founding fathers were well aware of all these factors.  

How far we've strayed.
