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.

My response: Probably one more HRC assassination contract!! This would make a really good episode on the UNTOUCHABLES or NYPD Blue! 


Nice Try Lao Che's picture

If my reading of history is correct, the last time "inscriptions [were] carved into the very living rock by God Himself...", well, what happened.


1. They were broken into pieces by Moses because the Hebrews, after only a short time of freedom, decided to worship a golden calf God.

2. But then, they collected those pieces all up and put them in an Ark

3. Which, by (((their))) own accounts, could create mammon and lay waste to entire armies.

4. But then, lo & behold, they somehow lost this all powerful thing and became conquered, TWICE

5. The 2nd time was by the Romans, who, with (((their))) help, crucified Jesus of Nazereth

6. The aforementioned ARK was never seen again, except, to make a cameo appearance to melt the face off off evil Nazis in a (((Spielberg))) flick.

7. The last anyone heard, it was being stored in an underground warehouse by ~ wait for it ~ wait for it ~ TOP MEN


Holy crap humans are retards!

Did you mean:

"The DNC is a terrorist organization, and MUST BE CHARGED UNDER THE PATRIOT ACT."


Arrest them and throw the killers into Solitary with no access to a lawyer for 6 months. Dems should love it since Obama is the one who passed it during his administration and made it even tougher on the accussed.

another addition to the Clinton body count. Sounds like an episode of "House of Cards', which is Hillary's favorite show BTW.

And what if it turns out that Rich was the one who provided Wikileaks with the emails?  Will you be objective and civilized, or will you be a raging faggot?  I think you'll be a raging faggot.  The regressive left is being so irrational that I'm seeing that becoming rational and uncivilized as a means of self preservation in the future.  You won't like the uncivilized me.

Assassination is obvious. Thank goodness the Weasel was fired and will hopefully be replaced by a law enforcment person instead of a DNC shill.

You guys are talking about a shill account. It's used to spread misinfo, divide, and dreail. It isnt a regular user. You can't reason with it. Just ignore it.

True. But comparing them to other outlets is like comparing lack of hand washing to eating out of a porto-potty.

It is pretty clear this was the crucial piece of evidence that has been known since last July but has finally "surfaced" by whatever means.

Clinton's & Co. may want to "silently leave the mainland" they can shut the DC Cops and even the FBI up for only so long.

Well if this is true.......   its one of the biggest WWE reverse body slams in history.  i.e., end of the Russian collusion narrative, and start of the CF - DNC corruption expose.

JethroBodien's picture

What do you think the purpose of the Russian narrative was??.  Of course if was to direct everyone's attention away from what was going on at the DNC, Clinton campaign and allegations of pedophilia.


Freedom Lover's picture

That was only a small part of the reason. The main reason was to prevent at all costs the Trump administration from collaborating with the Russians on defeating ISIS in Syria and bringing an end to the crisis in Ukraine. You seem to forget that HRC is an operative for the Globalist new World order which includes Wall Street, The City of London, Brussels and the US Military Industrial complex (Deep state). Trump was and is a mortal threat to their plans. I am sure there are a great many establishment Republicans that are not too happy to see the Russia conspiricy  narrative go away

The shameless sycophants just have to bend the narrative to make this poor guy connected to ... well, anyone and everyone, as convenient.

IndyPat's picture

Exactly nmewn.
That Sam.Spade guy here took me to the mat over this last week, him saying it was a hack. He's trying to sell his book, though and spams the hell out of any post that even hints at hacking.
Wikileaks always maintained that this was A LEAK.

Spade said it wasn't that simple and questioned motive.

If you were on team Bernie you had plenty of motive. If you know how slimey that Hillary witch is, you have plenty of motive. If you own a functioning conscrience (and are too young to have fully developed a sense of self preservation) you have major motive.
It's not all about money. Payback is a mover.

TheReplacement's picture

Larger question: How did the Clintons/DNC find out that Rich was the leak?

Theory: Either Wikileaks has a leak or this involves the NSA/CIA working at a proactive level beyond anything they do to thwart terrorism.

DaveyJones's picture

what if a hack takes a leak?

azusgm's picture

To be even more specific to this case: a thumb drive loaded up with communication data and handed over to Craig Murray in a wooded park area near American University is not a hack.

Only f'n ignorant morons (aka Congress) thought for a moment Podesta’s “PASSWORD” was phished and tens of thousands of emails downloaded.

Clinton operatives at Google could have told you that did not happen in a heartbeat.


azusgm's picture

John Podesta's gmail account was a separate matter from the DNC download although he had starring roles in both.

The Wikileaks Podesta page gives us an oblique hint at the reason for the Russia meme -- the Uranium One deal. People should be linking Hillary with Russia with Uranium One. Instead, the public, the wonks, and elected officials hear the term "Russia" and immediately start barking about Trump and elections and lack of fitness for office.

As Secretary of State, Hillary was instrumental in Uranium One being allowed to sell 20% of the Uranium resources in the United States of America to Russia. That would be akin to locking up a large portion of the world's raw hydrocarbons or control of the internet and handing them over to another entity that could dispense those resources to nations or actors that celebrate holidays such as "Death to America Day".

DNC getting sloppy, they should have removed wallet at least , Hillary will be furious

Thom Paine's picture

They wanted to leave a message other potential leakers, especially those heavily behind Sanders.

They knew there would be no investigation, and yet get away with another murder - Wet Works 

Blankenstein's picture

Don't forget Shawn Lucas, who served the DNC and that hideous troll Debbie Wasserman Schultz with a fraud class action suit, who ended up dead a week later.


BTW, what happened with this lawsuit?

Yog Soggoth's picture

Getting sloppy? Boy howdy is that an understatement! Hey Bernie, they killed your boy, and your communist dream, so what are you gonna do about it? Oh, your gonna roll over and piss on yourself like the filthy mongrel you are? I thought so.

Bernie has Stockholm Syndrome. He now identifies with his abusers.

Bernie is the Patty Hearst of politics. His calling for a Trump investigation is his bank picture with AK moment.

I think you are giving Bernie too much credit.

He is a plain old opportunist, always on the prowl for himself first.

Maybe Seth Rich was really in contact with the FBI reporting about DNC/Clinton crimes? And FBI swept it under the carpet? Coincidence that FBI reveals the source of the leak now after Comey was fired? Coincidence that FBI investigated Trump/Russia and not DNC/Clinton, before Comey was fired?

"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."

Now think about this for a second. WHEN is the LAST TIME the FBI charged anyone under RICO?

Yeah, I don't remember either.
