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.

Nothing happens here. Democrats cover it up as the GOP shamelessly uses this for political points. 

I feel bad for Seth Rich's parents and girlfriend who heard him die. 

This is the new USSR.

Yep. I got $100 that says no one goes to jail. The Clintons die of old age, or whatever the hell is eating Bill from the inside out.

I pray there is a heaven and hell. If not, they got away with everything. Unless we start to "John Ross" them all.

Nothing happens unless we DEMAND it happen. We need to get out into the streets and demand an investigation of Seth Rich's murder, and the coverup that has followed.

His fuckhead democrat parents are covering up the truth to protect their Queen...fuck them

This I haven't heard.  Links? 

If this is the case, the ideological brainwashing of the Left is much more advanced than I thought.  

Its one thing to sacrifice your own life for something you believe in, its a completely different thing to sacrifice your kids lives for something you believe in. 

If this is the case, this is some real Johanna Goebbels shit right here.

Hiring a PI kinda disqualifies you from trying to keep it secret. He and the family are both brave as noone knows to what length these people will go to protect themselves.

Bastiat's picture

Yeah maybe the family is just pretending to protect the DNC so they don't get murdered too.

tmosley's picture

What are you talking about? They hired a PI to investigate, who has released much of his findings publicly, implicating that Rich was a wikileaks source, implying strongly that he was murdered to shut him up.

you_are_cleared_hot's picture

No, I believe last July Seth's parents were in shock and denial. Then, they went and hired out their own PI to figure out what this has come out tells me that Seth's parents have come to a realization and are now sharpening their knives for those responsible...the fact that they (those responsible) are Democrats really does not mean anything to his poor parents at this point. For the rest of us...this is pure political porn.

SoilMyselfRotten's picture

Does make me wonder if this latest Trump news cycle exploit, isn't to make sure this story never gets legs. They are after all opposing sides of the story so wouldn't surprise me if they went on the offensive to keep the pressure on the Russia/Trump side of it

That the FBI could not connect the dots and properly investigate the murder shows that they were complicit in the crime. What a disgrace. And the media will do it's best to sweep this under the rug as conspiracy theory nonsense. 

A simple phone call to the DNC would have confirmed if Seth Rich had access to the data released by Wikileaks. Julian Assange offers reward for information on the Rich murder highly suggesting that Rich was the leaker. Neither the FBI nor the DC Police would investigate his laptop for more information before closing the case as a failed robbery? Comey did deserve to be fired. Someone should be questioning the D.C Metro Chief.

The laptop is destroyed.

 They are in on the same team as the Clinton crime syndicate. Remember Chukwuemeka Ekwonna,

,David Abbot, Marc Washington, Wendel Palmer, Darrel Best, Linwood Barnhill, Micheal Malloy, and Detective William Weeks of the Youth Investigations Division. The only way to question them is to put them in handcuffs first.

It has always been the USSR. Just with a better PR department- the MSM and Hollywood to muddy the waters.

You imbeciles would insist that the sky was green if being blue meant that the DNC was guilty of something.


Try this one then shit head.

Um, logic dictates that the the GOP only scores points when the hitmen and who hired them (you know who) do the perpwalk.

You don't gain yards on a fumble.

I have no objection to your statement as written and have felt that way myself many times.

However, I think you meant "pus," not "puss," dammit and -1 for such an disturbing error.

If it's Clinton...

Excercise machines are just as good. Ask Harry Reid. The reason good always prevails is that evil always, ALWAYS turns on itself.

I crawled on my hands and knees on that corner just like Seth did. I looked up at the camera on the convenience story catacorner. I looked across the lake to the hospital on my right. I went to the convenience store and asked for the surveillance tape from the Chinese gal running the place. They dropped of the Hells Angel guy who intimidated the shit out of the Chinese gal one minute after I went in the store. They propofoled him at 2AM, he gave up everything under drugs, and they rolled him out of the car at 4:15AM. He went to the hospital at 4:20AM, and he talked with his parents and brother. He was sitting up and talking with them, but he was still a bit groggy from the propofol. Then the nurse anesthetist took him out at 5:59AM after his family left the hospital.? - Geoge Webb

I now officially declare myself a believer in ARKANCIDE. I've always believed the Clinton's conspired to enrich themselves. I've strongly suspected pedophilia was part of their broad sexual behaviors. But I wasn't totally on board with the innumerable murder allegations. Well, now I am. They really do appear to be a political crime syndicate who have pulled the wool over vast swaths of the American public for decades.

The libtards would sell their mom for a buck, let alone kill for an extra vote.

We can only hope enough libtards stop believing their daily brainwash from mainstream media and focus on the car chases happening just outside their government housing complex.

You can ask Vince Foster all about that one.

Who signed Rich's death warrant, Hillary or Bill?  Was Nancy Pelosi in the loop?  Murder Inc. at the highest levels of the government, with the FBI's Comey and the District of Columbia police chief providing interference to block the investigation.  And that hit squad is still on call.  As Trump well knows, which is why he is staying away from Trump Tower.

Podesta was the one that ordered "retaliation". It was in one of the wikileak's emails, though I don't seem to be able to find it at the moment. Pure coincidence, I'm sure.

i would sugest that the computer as evidence is been wiped clean, OR the info contained on it was planted by the ce eye ah, wink wink, node...
