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.

Comey lost his career protecting Hillary...I wonder if he now thinks it was worth it.

Loanman26's picture

Seth Rich's parents certainly did an about face on this.

I think right about the time the envelope was delivered.

Brad Baumann? Really?

Comey didnt want to go on the hit list. He took the account in the Caymins.

I have no doubt that he was well compensated via bribes in one fashion or another routed through the Clinton Foundation slush fund.

LyLo's picture

I donno: I think they all thought she'd be president right now, and a lot of this they really didn't plan well for.  I have a sneaking suspicion that she is just about ripe for the road. 

Bear in mind: the DNC is not The Powers That Be, even if they really wish they were.  In fact, I would think TPTB hedge their bets with all political movements as much as possible.  Really, it's the Democrat's move here.  They HAVE to keep the bullets from hitting any real power brokers, or they probably risk individual destruction. 

Honestly, if I was an elite, my move would soon be completely wiping the whole DNC as they are proving nothing but a liability... unless they are able to clear out and hush up the Clinton mess as it really is undermining all their hard-fought propaganda gains.  (And no, screaming "the Russians are coming" just isn't cutting it, regardless of how many fifty year old xanaxed out soccer moms are now tuning in to MSNBC.)

IF (great big, whopping if) anyone else picks this up AT ALL...  Well, it's a good sign I'm reading it right.

It's quite clear to those of us with brains that the kid was murdered by someone involved with Hillary's campaign. Now that Comey is gone maybe a real investigation will take place. Trump better be pushing this one hard.

To Hell In A Handbasket's picture

lol. Like they will also investigate the death of Monica Peterson? In a fair and just world? Maybe, but not the one we all currently inhabit. It's wickedness and evil all around. There is no Karma for bastards like the Clintons.

No Karma maybe, but plenty of rope to go around.

This is why Comey is punching back with the charge that Trump tried to get comey to lay off Flynn, it's a last ditch effort to derail Trump.

This is your Russian hacker with IC, FBI, obama, Clinton, lynch cover up in all probability. Certainly they knew he was leaking to Wiki.

I'm willing to bet my ballsack that Clinton ordered his murder too.

I'd bet mine too but the house said they don't take bets that small.  Bada Boom. (A little self depreciating humor is good for the soul.)

And the US Feral Bureau of Weasels are protecting Seth Rich's murderer.  But, then that's their job as political police, the enforcers for the status quo morons.  That is why former-FBI Director James "Hillary's Bitch" Comey is so proud of his tenure as FBI Director.  He is a proud member of the Klinton Krime Klan Pedophiles 'R Us kabal.

I did not have that man murdered.

Come'on hilldog, I know you got your fingers crossed behind your back.

So you're saying you did him yourself?

Which man?

And please clarify your definition of "I".

No, she HAD him murdered. There is a difference.

"I did not have that man murdered".

Little more complicated than that.  Accessory before or after the fact.  Conspiracy to commit....  etc. etc. 


Emails have a funny way of linking things together, but then you know that.


*edit add- And at some point this will become a race to see who seeks immunity protection first (assuming the DOJ / FBI changes their stance on this case).  Not saying who, just that there are likely enough players involved to create a classic dilemna for all. Wait for it.

I did not have that man, Mr. Rich, murdered.

The crazy thing is... it's true. The murder... the coverup. All of it.

It's pretty clear who had this guy whacked, isn't it? Can we please end the "Russians did it" narrative now?

PrivetHedge's picture

Not just Seth, they whacked his contact Gavin too.

The articles I read said Gavin MacFadyen died of lung cancer. 

(Admittedly, those articles didn't say whether his lungs were full of Po 84.)

So weird: all of my life, death has always been INconvenient.  You know?  I don't know of a single time that someone died that it was a "good time" in any way.  Even if there is inheritance, the death happens at the bottom of the market so you either are forced to hold and possibly lose it all or just eat it knowing that it would have been a million a year before.  Or it's a good friend that's only thirty and you hadn't even called him in a few months, figuring you'd just see him soon...  You know, how the real world always seems to work for everyone I've ever known.

Honestly, massive probable cause in my view.  Just the fact that not one, not two, but dozens of 'convenient' deaths happened to one family is incredibly fucking telling.

chubbar's picture

Not only that, how many people did you know personally that were murdered? I'm approaching 60 and I only knew briefly one person and not very well. The Clintons knew 73 people and many of them VERY well. That just isn't statistically possible without them being involved.

Step 1 : get a new Director of the FBI sworn in
Step 2: Get new said director to blow this wide open! 

Mr.BlingBling's picture

Time's a wastin' so I suggest adding another step:

Step 0.1:  Install Steve Bannon as interim FBI director.

Better yet, appoint Ron Paul and help him shatter al-CIAduh into a gazillion pieces...

What happened to Seth Rich has happened repeatedly throughout history. Assassination of political enemies is nothing new, as the wealthy and powerful have more tools at their disposal for both committing the murder and for exonerating themselves from any accountability after the fact.

Historically, poison has been the preferred method of political assassination.

Would you like some lemon in your tea?

Miss Expectations's picture

Unlike Breitbart, Seth refused the last call drink,  so Plan B.

Mossad would've shot him in the head.  Was he shot in the head?

The Washington D.C. Medical Examiner’s office told Heavy that Rich died from gunshot wound to the torso and the manner of death was homicide. The office did not say how many times Rich was shot and said that autopsy reports are not publicly released to the news media in D.C.

The Washington Post says at least one of Rich’s multiple gunshot wounds was in the back. The shooting occurred in northwest Washington D.C.’s Bloomingdale neighborhood, said WUSA9.Rich was taken to the hospital, where he died, said WUSA9.

Judicial Watch needs to take an interest in this case.

Like to see that examiners report.

So far no coverage of this story on the "TRUMP RUSSIA" channel otherwise known as CNN.  


Oh gee, I wonder why?

Bill and Hillary Murder Inc exposed. Dare we hope?

Just once I'd like to give the win to truth and justice ... it's been some long lean years in that regard.

So will there be an investigation on this?

Here's to hoping the Clinton machine murdered one too many people. We ALL know now what they've done. 

May they suffocate slowly as they hang.
