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.



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.

@ Socratic,

Perhaps, I also viewed the same post yesterday regarding the attending surgeon on a different link.

Well, that's pretty flattering, to you and also to the Hedge commentators in general. A single comment (yours) is copied/pasted as a blog entry, it became an article. Congratulations, I guess.

And we keep getting trolls talking about how fucking dumb we are here. Maybe not.

Warthog777's picture

And why, if your robbing somebody, do you shoot them in the back?

1. To stop them so you can rob them? and then you don't take the money, watch, cell phone etc?

2. Because they ran and you want to punish them? Then you still don't steal the stuff, and risk a murder charge for nothing?

Where are the police reports? Autopsy? Interviews with paramedics, hospital staff? Why is the DNC not screaming for the release of information to clear their name? Offering reward to find the perps? Justice for one of their own?

Why is this case under wraps? Unanswered questions breed conspiracy theories.

Who informed the DNC that Seth Rich was leaking the emails so he could be killed before they were released?

That is, unless I misunderstood the timeline above.

I used to think Russia Today was a propoganda joke news network unlike our "news."

Yes, and now due to our MSM totally debasing themselves, RT has 'risen' right to the top level of credible news sources.


I would really welcome someone organizing a national grss roots movement to boycott any product or company advertising on CNN, or in the WaPoo, or NYT....and others.

It would be easy to finance such an organization through some crowd funding. Then using that war chest, run ads on FOX asking folks to boycott the companies. Maybe there is a younger energetic person at the NRA who would take this on? Or someone now with Judicial Watch?


Cutting off ad dollars to the lousy MSM would put them out of action and it could be done in perhaps as little as 6 months.

Hey Julian, keep the $130K, it was most likely the same people that killed Foster!

Comey is clearly tied into the Clintons. He was director of HSBC, the poster child for criminal money laundering by TBTF banks, and the bank,of course, of choice for the Clinton's. In a prior White Water investigation, he made sure the Clinton's were protected from the consequences of their criminal activity. He has other Clinton tie ins related to a law firm and to Lockheed - Martin and a bif win they had while Hillary was running the state department.


It amazes me that even on FOX they have people on who simply state that Comey is a good guy....a staright shooter, etc. Tucker or Lou or Hannity ought to check the actual facts on Comey....he is not a straight shooter and anyone claiming he is is also suspect. They should do a major segment on him and can start with White Water up to the current time.

shovelhead's picture

And here's the thing.

Comey could very well be a straight shooter and an honorable man...

Until he's pressured to not be one to retain his career, or worse, the welfare of somebody close or any number of reasons. The only way he could be accurately judged is to know those reasons.

I believe as someone charged with the public trust and his apparent breech of same, I feel we, as his employers, are entitled to know what those reasons were.

I'm always confounded by otherwise intelligent people who insist the world is black or white, good or evil when dealing with human beings when there's more than abundant evidence that it's almost never the case.

The latter is pretty much the basis for literature since the written word first pressed a clay tablet.

Ajax-1's picture

Comey is NOT a straight shooter nor is he intellectually or professionally honest. He is a partisan hack and a law enforcement poser.

you_are_cleared_hot's picture

Can you just imagine the meltdown the MSM will have WHEN the new FBI director finds "new evidence" or "previously overlooked evidence" in the Seth Rich case...a white-hot phosphorous meltdown comes to mind. Oh God, please make it so!

Ajax-1's picture

Just for good measure, someone needs to subpoena the Chief of the DC Metro Police as well as the Detective and ask them who demanded that they not actually conduct an honest investigation.

"Look at the red background behind the picture of Seth Rich. See anyTHING you know?"

Fixed that for you.

To be fair, that creature probably never held anything more potentially a weapon in its miserable existance than a lamp. It'd be laughable to see it try to manage a firearm of any size.  And no way would it have directly ordered the hit, especially as sloppy as this one was.

And yes, that sounds cruel. That creature and its allies are worshippers of cruel.

He looked like a good kid. The circumstantial evidence pointing to the Clinton campaign is overwhelming.

Of course Hillary and podesta had the punk killed.  Who else would want to knock him off that badly at that particular time ????  The Clinton Criminal foundation continues un-molested and un-touched.  Clearly they had to bribe Sanders too in order to keep him 'quiet.' 

Its not Trump's job to root out all of this evil on the left, but he does happen to be in a very unique position to deal with it, his way.  No regular lying filthy politician would touch this stuff.  HRC had to desperately win the election to become President so this stuff could be buried, and justice obstructed forever more.  

Doubt Trump will not seek justice, on HRC, Obama, Podesta, and everyone attached to the CCF. In fact, they are laying their very own tomb, by continuing to interfere in his administration. Just give this more time, as these fools dig their own graves, deeper and deeper and deeper. 

DaveyJones's picture

they either bribed Sanders or, more likely, threatened Sanders

I hate ALL the politicans but it amazes me how quickly the "system" has made most forget the overwhelming evidence that the democratic party (read Clintons+) stole the process from their own members and, as a result, helped produce the current guy in office given that Bernie, like or hate him, always had an entirely different set of data in the polls than Criminal Hillary. The MSN not only buried that issue instantly but flipped it WITHOUT ANY evidence (or commons sense) to the claim that the Russians produced Trump. Of couse, as that evidence broke, it drove even more people away from her despite WHATEVER the voters thought of Trump. I only hope that despite whatever these disgusting, corrupt parties and press try, their validity continues to drop and people realize how criminal, deceptive, theiving and murderous their "government" and corporate media truly is.

Then why no real investigation into it?  Seems odd that this would then not be apart of the whole 'Russian' thing if this was true.  Media would be all over it, no?  And yet none are.


Rumor is that it was contracted out by the mossad (badly, as it was a sloppy hit).


The mossad likely runs the blackmail rings in DC and elsewhere.  Hence the media muzzle.  It looks like the Wikileaks emails exposed a major mossad / CIA (intel agencies work together on domestic issues which are both illegal and too risky for home based government entities) blackmail operation that controls many political players.  


But someone had to raise the flag within the DNC and elsewhere that there was an insider leaking info.  My guess is that this is in the emails that they have not 'found' yet due to the fact that there has been no real investigation.


Now it becomes obvious why the DNC was literally obstructing justice by denying the servers to investigators.  


Anyone can connect the dots. So why no investigation?

Russia is denying their involvment in the leaked emails, which would point the finger of blame in the direction of Seth Rich, which would give further weight to the idea that he was assassinated for his actions, which implicates the DNC and then Shillary.

jeff montanye's picture

what implicates hillary clinton in the murder of seth rich is that the fbi didn't investigate his murder as part of their search for the "truth" about how the dnc emails ended up at wikileaks, preferably (from their point of view) implicating the russians and the trump campaign.  seth rich could have been a russian spy or a trump mole for all the fbi knew.  their lack of interest really makes it look like the killing was an inside job.

Metaphorically speaking.

But it's a fair question, why would the Candidate have to answer for 100% of what thousands of people do? Easy: current self serving standard promoted by the "MSM".

Nobody convicting Mrs. Bill C. ... "implicates".

This is what FBI Anon said about Seth Rich:


Q: What about Seth Rich and his murder?

A:  Expect a flood of new info regarding this. It was a sloppy hit, and can lead directly to 3 senators, and John Brennan calling in a favor from some of his Mossad buddies. This I have heard from more than one source. There is a leaker within the DC police, and fireworks will come soon enough. Seth Rich passed on over 44k emails to Wikileaks. Why do you think the CIA is calling for JA’s head? Because they must silence any investigation into Rich’s  execution. Start with Schumer and McCain and see where the breadcrumbs lead.
