Murdered DNC Staffer Seth Rich Was In Contact With Wikileaks Says Former DC Homicide Detective

Submitted by ZeroPointNow

It's been close to a year since Seth Rich, the 27 year old computer expert who worked for the DNC, was murdered - shot twice in the back without anything of value taken from him.  Rich was found alive and in shock before he bled out - his death ruled nothing more than a botched robbery.

Many believe Rich was a victim retaliation for being the source who provided Wikileaks with a trove of DNC emails. Rumors were fueled by the odd circumstances surrounding his death, the sudden retirement of D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier five weeks after the murder, and an email John Podesta sent to Hillary's inner circle about making an example of a suspected leaker.

In the aftermath of the shooting, the Rich family hired a private investigator - Rich Wheeler, a former D.C. homicide detective who says evidence on Seth Rich's laptop suggests he was in contact with WikiLeaks prior to his death. Of note, Wheeler does not have possession of the laptop in question - however he said specific information will be released on Tuesday (5/16). 

Furthermore, Wheeler believes there has been a cover-up:

"The police department nor the FBI have been forthcoming,” said Wheeler. “They haven't been cooperating at all. I believe that the answer to solving his death lies on that computer, which I believe is either at the police department or either at the FBI. I have been told both.”


When we asked Wheeler if his sources have told him there is information that links Rich to Wikileaks, he said, “Absolutely. Yeah. That's confirmed."


"I have a source inside the police department that has looked at me straight in the eye and said, ‘Rod, we were told to stand down on this case and I can’t share any information with you.’ -Fox5

So a former D.C. homicide detective, hired by the Rich family, claims he was told directly by a source within D.C. police that they were told to stand down.

It also casts doubt on the Russian hacking narrative...

Furthermore, Wheeler said there's more to come:

I don’t think it comes from the chief’s office, but I do believe there is a correlation between the mayor's office and the DNC and that is the information that will come out [Tuesday].


Let's not forget Julian Assange heavily implied that Seth Rich was a source, and Wikileaks offered a $130,000 reward for information leading to the murderer:

Tying together with Dr. Pie's narrative

Right before the election Dr. Steve Pieczenik - ex deputy Sec. of State under Kissinger - told the world that the Wikileaks releases were part of a 'counter-coup' in which elements within the US Intelligence community decided Hillary Clinton and the globalist interests she represented couldn't be allowed to reach the Oval Office. In response, US citizens - not Russia, gave the DNC / Podesta / Hillary emails to Wikileaks for a timed release schedule during the 2016 Presidential race.


How Wikileaks changed the course of history

When the Wikileaks were released, there was no table of contents or any other guide. Instead, these were raw – DKIM verified emails, which would take nothing short of a massive crowd-sourced effort to process and decipher. Within days however, dots were rapidly being connected across various message boards – mostly 4chan and Reddit’s “The_Donald”. New discoveries reached massive audiences through digital megaphones provided by social media giants Twitter and Facebook, and eventually made it into the mainstream. 

The results of the online efforts were staggering, as the world witnessed revelations of “Pay for Play” by Clinton Foundation donors who funded ISIS, the DNC cheating against Bernie Sanders, MSM collusion with the Clinton campaign, Hillary’s dreams of open borders, “unaware and compliant” citizens, #SpiritCooking, Wet Works, and evidence of Aliens and Zero Point Energy – (either that or a completely insane Edgar Mitchell (15052)).

Back to detective Wheeler and Seth Rich

If Seth Rich was in fact one of Wikileaks' sources, it's far less of a stretch to conclude that he was murdered. Moreover, what's left of the Russian hacking narrative is now - in my opinion, moot. More to come Tuesday, when this could get even more interesting.

Didn't even matter in the end, Hillary still won. Just the version that won has bad hair and a real dick opposed to a strap-on.

Justice Scalia believed Supreme Court was being spied-on by Obama! Judge Napolitano says Obama could be subpoenaed if he viewed the intel!

Wouldn't you love to see Anderson Cooper say this on CNN news?

"Recent investigation have shown that a DNC staffer was responsible for the leaks and not Russia. Russia has been cleared of any interference in the election. Hillary Clinton and John Podesta were aware that the DNC staffer, and not Russia, was responsible for the leak, and hired assassins to shoot the DNC leaker in the back of the head. Both Hillary and Podesta have been arrested for murder and are expected to face the death penalty. In other news..."

In his last night as President, Obozo stated that it was not Russia behind the leaks but a DemocRat insider.. Seth Rich was the IT Administatrator for the DNC


Here is President Obama in his final press conference yesterday (vid @8:31):

First of all, I haven't commented on WikiLeaks, generally. The conclusions of the intelligence community with respect to the Russian hacking were not conclusive as to whether Wikileaks was witting or not in being the conduit through which we heard about the DNC emails that were leaked.

Everybodys All American's picture

So more than likely the intelliegence agencies at the highest levels of our government are in on the coverup. Hence the whole stupid Russian narrative.

To Hell In A Handbasket's picture

I've long given up caring, who lives and who dies. It's all a fucking game to crooks like the Clintons and their alleged Nemesis, involved in the counter coup. JUST RELEASE THE FUCKING EMAILS! ALL OF THEM INCLUDING THOSE BELONGING TO THE PAEDOPHILE ANTHONY WEINER! Alas as is fucking obvious, somebody is always protecting somebody else, even if they are a hardcore criminal, a molester of children, or just outright corrupt.

Who are the 1100 donors in the corrupt scam of pay-to-play with Clinton Foundation and thus the generous return on their original investment? That's the only answer worth knowing. These cunts knew what they were doing and the perks involved. BRING DOWN THE WHOLE FUCKING THING ON TOP OF THEIR HEADS!  Seth Rich died for nothing, because Comey & Co, looked the other way and those with the emails won't release them and neither am I waiting for the "perfect moment to release them" bullshit, because even if they are released, such is the level of corruption, nothing will happen to the accused anyway.

Our 'learned helplessness' is their goal. Don't give in.

Just wait until it sinks in to the poor, naive Snowflakes that not only is the "the Russians!! The Russians!! The Russians!! took down Hillary" narrative a complete made up hoax brought to them via the Liberal media they worship at the feet of, but that the real source of the leaks is a fresh-faced, handsome, idealistic Bernie supporting fellow Millennial. Who was murdered. And all roads lead back to the Hillary loving DNC.

Oh, hells bells kiddies.....Trump just lobbed one of those infamous MOABs right into the heart of D.C.!! Get that popcorn popping and gather up some marshmallow for toasting. This is going to be good.

It never sinks in for the simple reason that the truth just doesn't matter to them. All that matters is to obstruct and derail Trump and try to bring back the lefty Road to Hell Tour.

Annnnndddd the true source of the Podesta emails come to light. Hint: I wasn't a Ruskie, twas a deep mole who got fingered then shot twice in the back. I guess he got "wiped, like with a cloth" Clinton style.

Yes I remember once I spit on the sidewalk and the 5 cops assigned to my case were told to stand down because they knew I humped 8 year old boys.

Dude.  Put the crack pipe down and step back from the keyboard.

Or, just go fuck yourself, dipshit.

Spoken like a true DUMBFUCK cop. You should have stayed at WalMart for a promotion they always promote the dumbest tards first, just like the cops. If you don't understand what I said here's something you might understand, derrrrrrrr ummmmmmmm Donuts. Retard.

hangemhigh77's picture

And which cop "investigating" this case is the "good" cop? We need these cops to keep us safe. Cops are here working for the citizen helping us. No cops aren't just agents of a corrupt state enforcing illegitimate and unconstitutional "laws" created by liars thieves and pedophiles. We need to spend TRILLIONS on all these "necessary" public servants. Ahahahahahaha

hangemhigh77's picture

A cop saved my life the other day, he wrote me a $150 seat belt ticket. I thanked him for saving my life. Cops help 16 year old kids by arresting them for smoking pot and throwing them in prison for ten years. Yes we need to respect police "officers" these ex-WalMart greeters are highly trained concerned public servants. Hey, it's hard to find a guy that will shoot his neighbors kid in the head for $5 and then go eat lunch.

Hitting the crack pipe a little early today, are you??

I guess you're right everything I said is so delusional. Oh wait, you're the one who's delusional. Go piss on someone else's leg lady. You're a cop worshipping dumbass.

Yes-our cops are truly faithful, dedicated servants of the police state/NWO. We owe them a great deal of grattitude for protecting Big Brother and keeping us all happy, safe and secure within the comfort and safety of the matrix.

The truth will eventually come out, and we will find out Podesta and the Clinton's had Seth Rich killed to silence him regarding screwing over Bernie Sanders!

Surprise, surprise surprise....

Now why they hell is Trump not releasing all the unmasking evidence?  The commies are right here at home, and they HATE Russia for abandoning communism.

General Titus's picture

Obozo in his last speech as president stated that it was not "Russian Hacking" but a DemocRat insider who leaked and exposed the liying, spirit cooking Podestas, and the rest of the US Bolshevick sickos that have taken over the DemocRat party and even stole the primary from Sanders.  This is a Clinton MO that has been ongoing since the Clinton's were in Arkansas and he was governor where they were involved with Cocaine for weapons swapping out of Mena

Clinton body count.

The sole job of the US Feral Bureau of Weasels is protecting the status quo.  They protect the Intellectual Yet Idiot classes ruling morons by jailing and/or eliminating opposition.  Just ask Randy Weaver or David Koresh.  Oops!  My mistake.  David Koresh was murdered by the FBI.  But, you can still get Randy Weaver's opinion.  I am sure that he has a good opinion about the FBI.  After all they murdered his wife.

Virulent Roman Catholic and West Point grad Lon Horuichi got a twofer - the killshot got their baby in her arms, too...and Mr. "Duty, Honor, Country" saw through his scope precisely what he was doing, and continues on the Long Green at taxpayers' expense...and out of jail.

Imagine being Lon. The People would do him a favor bringing to justice those who had him do that, and him for being nothing but a Godless killer. Same at Waco: murdering innocents on the FBI's dime. Little wonder Thug Pompeo was top of his class.

To kill without moral authority is satanic.

Satan's "team," the Anti-Christ's Fifth Column Beast of (((Gog))) and Babylon now on Our Land, attacking our "nation of unwalled villages" as foretold of "Zion" by Ezekiel, must be excised as the cancer we all know they who killed John and Martin to restore their FedScam and send us as papal catspaw to Vietnam; and did 9/11, are.

I thought I already knew this.

Nunyadambizness's picture

Grab some popcorn, this is going to be interesting...  

IF he was the leaker, and I'm pretty sure he is, AND his murder can be tied back to the DNC and/or Podesta or Clinton, THEN we'll see exactly how corrupt our FBI and Department of Justice really are...  ONLY if they prosecute to the fullest degree and punish ALL involved (including the Mayor of DC), will we know we've started to truly drain the swamp.  I'm not holding my breath...

hangemhigh77's picture

Corruption? What's that? Hopefully you hold your breath until you're out of breath. You're a troll cop asshole. Podesta is your hero. Give the 8 year old sitting next to you a donut.

Who the fuck are you?  Fucking keyboard commando, please get out of your mommies basement and go fuck yourself with a .44 to the head.

Whatever you say cop. Go write some tickets and shoot a few dogs keeping everyone "safe" you FUCKING MORON.

Seth Rich must be a Russian hacker!

Snort. Has anyone informed Alex Jones?

Snort. According to the rules of modern journalism, that's all one needs for rockin' headline is rumor, innuendo, or delusional wishful thinking. If there is even ONE piece of credible evidence supporting this story the entire house of cards known as the Washington Establishment crumbles.

Stay tuned. And I would stock up on popcorn and marshmallows.

darteaus's picture

That's all one needs - when the smear is directed toward those who believe in the traditional way of life in America.  When the target is bent of the destruction of that way of life - facts, no matter how damning, don't matter.

It's all about the destruction of the traditional of American values, what follows (Zimbabwe, Venezuela, etc) doesn't matter.

hangemhigh77's picture

I would bet you look like you eat lots of popcorn and marshmallows. You should stock up on diet pills too maybe you can lose 100 lbs. and stop eating donuts. Cops, worship them.

shovelhead's picture

Jeez, just because they busted up your trailer park meth lab...

Get over it already. Go make some bath salts.

I'm making the shit for you. What's wrong the recipe isn't strong enough to numb your pea brain? Eat a donut cop.

Seriously dude.....there IS help out there. Go find it.

hangemhigh77's picture

Whatever you say Mustangdyke. Though it's more fun just insulting your dolt fat ass. Get a job. Go lick some cop's boot.

darteaus's picture

So, now it's clear why the "Trump - Russia" story is being hyped by the Dhimmicrats and their willing accomplices in the MSM - it's the fig leaf they're hiding the truth behind.

When the NYT/WAPO/PMSNBC/etc. completely ignore this story that will be its confirmation.

Surely the tRump admin has now has some ammo to go at the corporate neoliberal democrats and republican neocons, politically and maybe even "individual" wise.

I'm no trumptard, but I am rooting for him on this one.

Homer E. Rectus's picture

Most likely Comey did what he was forced to do.  I think that it's too late to hope for justice. It doesn't matter who the FBI director or the AG or the president or the supreme court justices are. Hillary and her ilk are above the law. The only thing that will change that is a revolution.

hangemhigh77's picture

There are a lot of cop-tards trolling this blog. I'd like to address all the loser dumbfuck cops trolling this blog, EAT A DONUT. AND, you all have pea brains. That is all please continue scratching your asses.

mtanimal's picture

And if his death wasn't suspicious enough to warrant a REAL investigation, now we have a (for the time) living witness who says there is a smoking gun.

Another opportunity for the new administration to prove they are not 'of the swamp', but ... we'll see.

We all knew this from the start!...well, minus the trolls. I'm sure they are here today with this story finally out now.
