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.

Rich

 

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.

I've been saying for over 2 years now, the collective "we" probably deserves what's coming for sticking their fingers in the ears, closing their eyes and adamantly refusing to lconsider any evidence except that which supported their previously held beliefs.

It does remove all doubt about the FBIs true role in our society, hopefully opening a few eyes and minds.

The secret police guarding the one party, the deep state, and its minions.

Its policing work is merely practice and cover for that true purpose.

Don't nominate a new head, send it to the trash can of history NOW..

I wonder who ordered the murder of Seth Rich. Was it John Podesta? Was it Hillary Clinton? Was it Debra Wasserman-Scholtz? As I side note, I wonder who double crossed and informed on Seth Rich. Was it Julian Assange or was Seth Rich careless and confided his intentions to someone that he thought he could trust? 

Winston Churchill's picture

If you want a secret kept tell no one,A secret shared is a secret no more.

DING DING DING. WE ALL SUSPECTED HIS DEATH WAS RELATED TO WIKILEAKS AND NOW WE KNOW THE DNC PER THE NEW WORLD ORDER HIRED A HITMAN AND OFFED HIM. WHY IS THE MEDIA NOT TALKING ABOUT THIS REVELATION?

In non-bizzare-o world this is news that sells papers. In bizzare-o world this is "news you can lose."

"The DNC hired a hitman"  I don't think it works like that.  I think a call is made to a deep state contact (or handler) and something is said like "We have a problem."  And the problem gets solved.  I think this relationship was built during Arkansas and the Mena airport years.

They actually are.
Fox News ran it this morning. I about shit myself. Wasn't even skewed or spun.
Something is going down with this. Someone is setting the table.

Winston Churchill's picture

The deep state double crossed Trump.

"Just bomb Syria and we will make your life easier."

He has realized his stupidity and is now coming for HRCs blood, and she is  deep state..

Thats my read.

I'd bet my balls to a barn dance the whoever those two gunmen were that were on the surveillance tape were also in the bar that night.
Bet that bar has video too.

You know the kid said something to paramedics and the ER Docs, too.

Bastiat's picture

Stop it!  You'll get them all killed.

My bet is that the gunmen are already pushing up daisies in a field somewhere.

Yes We Can. But Lets Not.'s picture

Yes - Seth Rich was talkative when police arrived.  Was not even aware he'd been shot.  In fact, the cops were surprised to learn that he didn't make it.  So what did Rich have to say before he passed?  And why did Rich wander so long that early morning, far longer than the walk home should have taken - was he trying to shake someone?  What did he tell his GF?  The frat bro he also spoke with that morn?

The machinations surrounding the Election 2016 and its aftermath could hardy have been scripted more intriguingly.  So many vile characters.

They were surprised because he died of ricin poisoning, not the gunshot wound.
Ricin is only used by one geopolitical power.
They just used a gun in this case instead of an umbrella.

Winston Churchill's picture

Ricin is used by many peeps, especially to frame Russia.

You can buy the basics at a seed store,hardly high tech.

The delivery mechanism was the same one as was used in 1973. A microscopic bullet 3 nanometers in diameter. The DNC have a 3-D printer that can do that?

Frame job, or signature to send a message?

What especially troubling is that the intelligence agencies have been talking this same bull shit narrative and they obviously all know better. This implies an even wider conspiracy than just the Clinton Crime family.

Or something much more subtle-- widespread fear.

And where was Comey? Oh yeah, having pizza with Hillary and Podestra.

Just curious about something.  Is this a murder or an assasination?  My vote is we start calling it an assasination since it was done purely for political purposes.

This explosive information was being suppressed by James Comey...FUCK the FBI!

Now let's find out that Seth initially reported this to the FBI only to be rebuffed and then he approached wikileaks. That MIGHT mean that the FBI director set up Seth for the murder by informing Hillary who the leaker was. Wouldn't that be a kick in the balls?

Does the rich area of Washington DC not have a camera on every street corner? Is it impossible for the police to get the license plates off of all of the cars in the area around the time of his murder and start narrowing in on suspects? Can the police not ping phones (and even new model cars with digital features) to find out what phones were in the area during the time he was murdered? I mean I'm not even a police officer and this stuff should be common sense to them...

DollarMenu's picture

Yes, but common sense and a pursuit of the answers is not in play here.

Cover up is.

justin423's picture

More like he found out the Russians are behind Wikileaks's and he is just the latest guy offed by the Russians.
What is he, like the 17th person to die?

j0nx's picture

Listened to the Larry o Connor show today on the way home with the PI who is investigating this. Holy shit this kid was totally murdered and the D.C. Police and FBI appear to be covering it up if you get the gist of the PI. This is some next level shit going on right now in this country with this and all this trump bashing nonsense. Scary times. Me thinks civil war 2.0 ain't far away if this keeps up. Wish I had a nice country retreat to head to when it breaks out.

How many times does this happen in USA ? Politics IS organised crime. Look at the fortunes - East Coast wealth from Opium Trade with China; Chicago/Detroit/Ohio Wealth from Bootlegging; Florida Wealth from Drugs. Even John McCain is rich through Bronfman bootlegging - Cindy Hensley of Hensley & Co - reward for her father being a fall guy

Have you notice John Kasich sticking his nose into this?

Sandmann's picture

When did Comey know ?

To Hell In A Handbasket's picture

Probably during the planning stage, so he could get ahead of the investigation if needed.

SillySalesmanQuestion's picture

They've known for a long time. Probably a day or two since his murder.
Andrew McCabe has been stonewalling for Shitlerly, Podesta and the DNC.
The lid is about to blow off...The FBI should be relieved of their duties, as far as investigating this case and ordered to turn over Seth Rich's laptop, along with, Anthony Weiner's laptop, and anything concerning Hillary.
Everything should be turned over to the DOJ, or a special prosecutor,post haste.

Ajax-1's picture

Perhaps Comey was the trigger man.

Max Cynical's picture

Sounds like he knew within 96 hours of the hit.
