Russian Embassy Implicates Hillary In Tweet Asking: "Who Killed Seth Rich?"

Tyler Durden's picture

Earlier this week, Fox News dropped a bombshell report officially confirming, via anonymous FBI sources, what many had suspected for quite some time, that murdered DNC staffer Seth Rich was the WikiLeaks source for leaks which proved that the DNC was intentially undermining the campaign of Bernie Sanders. In addition to exposing the utter corruption of the DNC, the leaks cost Debbie Wasserman Shcultz her job as Chairwoman.

At the time, we mockingly wondered why the mainstream media seemingly overlooked a huge new development in a highly suspicious unsolved murder case.

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.

Turns out we weren't alone, as the Russian Embassy in the U.K. just sent out the following tweet:

"#WikiLeaks informer Seth Rich murdered in US but MSM was so busy accusing Russian hackers to take notice."

 

We're currently waiting for Wapo to confirm that Trump actually insisted the Russians send this tweet.

* * *

For those who missed it, here is our note from earlier this week.

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.

The botched robbery is the GZOG. The only tribe that doesn't have a stake in keeping the ponzi running is Russia. And that's the way it is Friday, May 19th 2017.

Now that the "I just fired the nutjob" (FAKE) news story broke, this will 100% have no chance of being picked up by ANY news source.....

I put nothing past the Clinton Crime Family who hired pedophiles and sex offenders into their inner circle.  They gathered money for Haiti and then gave Hillary's brother a gold mine on that island.  The Clinton Crime Family involved in murder?  I can beleive it.

Hey ZH, Call the kettle black will you? Half your lead stories are coming from the New York Times, Washington Post, and CNN.

Case in point:

"Trump Told Russians Firing "Nut Job Comey" Eased Pressure From Invetigation"

Besides which, the comments here are either spam or completely stupid.

Im about done with this place.

Everyone knows who killed Seth Rich. It was Two Step Tony from the Good Fellas... they call him Two Step Tony because he likes to dance the two step after he double taps someone in the head.

 

Now who gave Two Step Tony the contract to kill Seth Rich?

 

*all the above is made up, except the killing of Seth Rich

I would bet that it was Debbie Wazzerman Shultz who arranged the hit.

If true the question becomes who was Seth Rich working for? The Russians, Deep State or Trump/RNC associates (da mob)

blahzay's picture

Seth Rich was repulsed by the crooked Hitlery dems who snuffed the Bern and wanted the corruption to be brought to light; thus, he was working for the American ideals the Democrat party used to stand for.

One of the things that makes me suspect the Jewish community, is that they have their Hasbara army on this trying to discredit the idea that Seth Rich was murdered by the Democrats. In fact it makes it look like Rich was murdered by a Jew.

Has to be Wazzerman Schultz.

Perhaps the Russians have some evidence and this is their way of telling Hillary to shut up or else...

Here's a link to a Twitter account of someone who claims to be a 4th year surgery resident at Washington Hospital Center with first-hand knowledge regarding Seth Rich (and his murder in the hospital after being shot, brought in, and stabilized):

Apparently, the assasin (or assasins) were not very good shots.

I'm hedging towards Podesta calling for the kill (Hitlery's mind and body are WAY too far gone to have independent thoughts or actions now).

I wish is were true,, but at least for now, the Fox story was Bulls__t. The so called private investigator walked it back. He basically made it up.  

Mroex's picture

Where the fuck is Sessions?? Come on Julien Assange told the world by his actions that Rich was the source. People are shot and robbed everyday in DC but Assange puts up 130K USD for information on this one person's murder??? Then say's sources take these kind of risks. 

Tell me there is not Probable Cause here for the DOJ to start an investigation

1) He was an IT professional at DNC

2) DNC e-mails are hacked

3) 12 days later Rich is shot and dies in a robbery where the "robbers" left thousands of dollars of valuables.

4) Julien Assange decides to put up a 130K USD reward for information on this one particular murder in DC

 

Those 4 things sure as fuck add up to probable cause to investigate Rich's death as a contract murder and it is obvious as to who has means, MOTIVE and oppurtunity

I think Hillary has a lot of connections still in DC.  Trump doesn't.  Bringing up this Seth Rich murder brought out Comey with the memo to distract Congress.  However, there is a portion of the population that is gullible and will fall for this Russian interference crap.  The big problem for Trump is that Hillary's friends are on both sides of the aisle.  It's tough.

 

If Trump is impeached, this stock market is falling faster than a meteorite.

Wait, Seth's girlfriend was his fraternity brother?  LOL  Might consider re-wording that sentence... ;-)

Obviously a political assassination, another case of "Arkancide".

VWAndy's picture

 So when can we expect o see the complete set of files Seth sent to wiki. It would also be nice if the Russians were a bit more open about this. Being that most of us were not in DC at the time we can prolly handle the truth.

  Thats an aspect that should bother everyone by now. We get all manner of he said this or that. What we dont get is the actuall e mails. Like with memos from the FBI. Its an artist rendering and not a clear picture. Same stunt they pulled with Snowden.

 After all Russia is not bound by US national security rules or any of our courts either. What gives?

"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."

I don't care if the police/FBI find 2 pistols in a closet at the Clintons' home; that the rifling of the bullets matches perfectly with the barrels' rifling; and the the fingerprints of Bill and Hillary Clinton are all over the weapons, NO CLINTON will ever be indicted, tried or go to prison !!!!

What truly AMAZES me is that someone would be murdered over already-leaked documents.

When a young teenager I used to think, "It is only an election."  Later I learned it is about power, money, control, psychopathy, narcissism - even for elections at the STATE and LOCAL levels !!!!   Anyone who wants power that much should NEVER be elected !!!!

Why has the FBI been so silent about Seth Rich's case? . . . also, the Media, White House and Congress ignoring the story and yet the story that Russia  hacked and compromised the election continues to be the main issue.
