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.

Not one thing is being done to solve this case by either the DC police or Comey's FBI.   And Joe Lieberman isn't about to do any better.   Trump needs to appoint an Interim Director of the FBI which would not require congressional approval.  The guy ought to be a barracuda who will stop at nothing until these cases are solved and the guilty tossed into prison.

There was no alternative media when Vince Foster was killed. 


We will eventually find out a Clinton paid assassin killed Seth Rich because he exposed collusion against Bernie Sanders and all the MSM CEOs doing everything they can to help Hillary.

Actually, we have always had alternative media. Finding it in a 100% hard copy information environment took some digging.

I think Lavrov has been doing an outstanding job of trolling the US MSM.

First with his smack down on behavior of Andrea Mitchell at a press conference, and this week his comment about "are you going to share any secrets with me". Hysterical, because you know they have their own evidence.

I think we're all basically the same, just tell us the truth and provide evidence. We are tired of all the "secrecy, classification etc". We've reached the point of just letting the chips fall where they may and let the guilty be charged. Shine the light on the corruption already.

The DNC machine kills off a leaker, Soros plays financial markets while at the same time sewing political discontent to crater the dollar for profit and the corporate media front page is about Russian interference in the election process and Trump's coming impeachment. Exactly what part do you not understand?

Research shows a correlation between sociopaths/psychopaths and "dead eyes." Hillary Clinton always struck me as painfully laboring to appear as if she was "normal."

Case in point:

ogretown's picture

Not entirely sure of the pyschopath, but when it comes to the successful sociopath the use of the eye thing is a powerful tool.  Those of us who are born with the gift of sociopathy understand how to use our eyes in an expert manner. We are able to pump just the right amount of emotion into our usually cold and analytical eyes to convey a myriad of emotion - and as stated, just the *right* amount of emotion.  Just because we do not actually feel the emotion is moot, because we certainly understand the pull of the various emotions on non-gifted humans.   The successful psychopath can also make this work...but that is the rub when talking about Corrupt Clinton.  She is NOT a successful pyschopath. She cannot mask her coldness, her lack of caring. She lets the ungifted crawl under her skin and she acts out accordingly.  She would have been as unsuccessful in leading the country as she was in controlling her own life.

By the way, anyone seen 'ole Billy Jeff these days...?   Wonder how he's holding up lately (Weekend at Bernie's...)

Now that you mention it...No!  He has been somewhat vacant in the media these days?  Last time I saw him, he was poking at all the pretty balloons falling from the ceiling at the DNC any old standard retard in the playground at Chucky Cheese?


There have been unsubstantiated reports that he was seen gobbling up piss biscuits out of the truck stop urinals on the Pennsylvania turnpike...One of his caretakers told him they were giant Sweet Tarts I suppose....

Herdee's picture

It means that the Clinton's have disappeared a lot of people, Seth Rich was just the latest. You have to understand who you are dealing with. Rapists, drug traffickers, petophiles, murderers, stock market and dollar destroyers, globalist pigs that want to finsh off the American middleclass, that's just the start. The Clinton's and Hussein Obama and his tranny Michael are scumbags that need to be locked up tight. The American public has been hoodwinked by con artists. Trump is a patriot and defender of America, if you are the same, you are now considered to be the enemy of globalists. They've already tried to destroy America with endless war and $20 trillion of government debt.

I think it is safe to say that at the end of the was the Benghazi Butcher who okayed the hit on Seth Rich.

Wheeler: "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."


Yeahbut Mr Wheeler, only two days ago that upright honest citizen and Director of the FBI James Comey (awfully wrongly and bigly sacked by Donald Trump) stated under oath that to his knowledge there has never been any political interference in FBI cases or attempts to trash or block an investigation. Surely he could not have been lying? The idea that James Comey lied is unbelievable, well almost.

Is it not far more likely that someone in the FBI simply mislaid the papers? And when they're found the FBI will investigate Seth Rich's murder?

"4th year surgery resident here who rotated at WHC (Washington Hospital Center) last year, it won't be hard to identify me but I feel that I shouldn't stay silent.

Seth Rich was shot twice, with 3 total gunshot wounds (entry and exit, and entry). He was taken to the OR emergently where we performed an exlap and found a small injury to segment 3 of the liver which was packed and several small bowel injuries (pretty common for gunshots to the back exiting the abdomen) which we resected ~12cm of bowel and left him in discontinuity (didn't hook everything back up) with the intent of performing a washout in the morning. He did not have any major vascular injuries otherwise. I've seen dozens of worse cases than this which survived and nothing about his injuries suggested to me that he'd sustained a fatal wound.

In the meantime he was transferred to the ICU and transfused 2 units of blood when his post-surgery crit came back ~20. He was stable and not on any pressors, and it seemed pretty routine. About 8 hours after he arrived we were swarmed by LEOs and pretty much everyone except the attending and a few nurses was kicked out of the ICU (disallowing visiting hours -normally every odd hour, eg 1am, 3am, etc- is not something we do routinely). It was weird as hell. At turnover that morning we were instructed not to round on the VIP that came in last night (that's exactly what the attending said, and no one except for me and another resident had any idea who he was talking about).

No one here was allowed to see Seth except for my attending when he died. No code was called. I rounded on patients literally next door but was physically blocked from checking in on him. I've never seen anything like it before, and while I can't say 100% that he was allowed to die, I don't understand why he was treated like that. Take it how you may, /pol/, I'm just one low level doc. Something's fishy though, that's for sure."

44k of emails will reveal collusion between MSM and DNC and Soros and Media Matters and maybe the Russians. It will debunk the russian collusion with Trump.. Why is the FBI not pursuing this route to get the truth. The entire DEMS story will break down so fast. AG has to pursue this story. Why is he not doing it?

FoggyWorld's picture

I think the emails were published under the heading of "Podesta emails."   You can go to Wikileaks and get them and read them.  You will never look at politics the same way after that experience.

besnook's picture

there is a story out there by a 4th year doctor resident who worked on rich who claims seth had been treated for survivable wounds but was allowed to die because follow up treatment was prevented by unknown sources who used leos to enforce the order.

If the hospital has video, we could identify those LEOs who colluded in his murder.

The deep state has a small army of these humans, some haven't seen the light of day. Some are brainwashed to believe us above grounders are dangerous. Some are just insane from the drugs and inhumane treatment. This is something I read in a novel so I know it's true.

I would inquire why Comey (FBI director) did not investigate the Clintons regarding the Seth Rich murder based on they had most to gain and lose from the leaks. Just confirms Comey's compliance with the corrupt establishment and government.

That really is a question fot former Attorney General, Loretta Lynch.  The FBI director is supposed to defer to the AG. This is why Comey was fired.  Comey failed to follow the chain of command when he single-handedly pardoned Hillary.  Comey should have left that on Lynch's plate but instead decided to be the fall guy. 

Why?  Comey hates Trump, prefers Clinton, and wanted AG Lynch to be let off the hook for her own inaction on this. And remember that the Tarmac shenanigans with Bill Clinton made it impossible for Lynch to take point on exonerating Hillary so someone who appeared unsullied like Comey had to do the dirty deed. 

What we have in Comey is at worst a man subject to blackmail and at best a man with such a massive ego and disregard for the Republic that he thinks he has a right to be King-Maker and King-Breaker.

Add this to this week's appalling statements by DNC Lawyers in their financial fraud case brought by Bernie Donors and it is GAME OVER for the Democrat Party.  They don't represent their constituency and claim that they have no allegiance to a democratic and even handed primary process = Donors are not going to participate anymore in funding the Democrat machine. 

Paracelsus's picture

  The hit could not stop what had been leaked so it has to be seen as:

a) payback and b) example to others how easy it is to get a hit put on

in the DC area. This came from the DNC mob, There is no other point.

When someone is charged by the Police, the cops look for:

Motive,Method and Opportunity.

So who had motive? Or in Italian "Qui Bono?" (Who benefits?)

If this happened in Rome the Italian press would've  been all over this...

DC Media very quiet over this and inquiring minds want to know why.

The real story here is how well Sanders was steamrollerin' along

and that they percieved him as a threat (fundraising).

The Clintons play hardball and always have.

Someday one of the Clintons' hitters will be offered a deal to spill his guts,

or a deathbed confession.

But of course everyone will be "too old to prosecute" by then.

I have read the list of people killed or "suicided" by the Clinton clan

and it reads like something out of the Borgias.

Lawyers. Shakespeare was right about them all along...

In one of the WL Podesta emails, Podesta wrote that he wanted someone - guilty or not of leaking - to be made an example of so that the rest of the employees would take heed.

I always thought it was suspicious that the FBI didn't didn't have their own tech people do the "The Russians Hacked the Election" investigation. Instead, the FBI contracted it out to CrowdStrike, whose CTO (Chief Technical Officer) is Dmitri Alperovitch. Alperovitch and his wife are deeply involved in the Clintons and Dem politics. Alperovitch is a Senior Fellow on the Atlantic Council (Wikipedia). My take is the FBI hired CrowdStrike 1) to implicate the Russians and Trump 2) to establish deniability if they got caught in a huge lie. They can say, "CrowdStrike said this, not the FBI". The other 16 "intelligence agencies" merely mouthed what the FBI and CrowdStrike reported. But now with Seth Rich emerging as possible leaker, that narrative is breaking down. Buttholes are puckering all over.

LA_Goldbug's picture

"Instead, the FBI contracted it out to CrowdStrike, "
Is this a "fact" or "guess" ?

FoggyWorld's picture

While I don't know the name of the company, when the FBI went to the DNC to get the data they were told they couldn't have it because the DNC was using it's own private company.   It was outrageous to think that the FBI would take that sort of answer from anyone but a player in what more and more looks like Comey's cover up role.   There have to be very compromised FBI agents who did these chores for Comey and it's time we heard about that.

Where is Sessions?

It's a fact. But the MSM doesn't want you to know this. Thus it is not mentioned.

Hey ASSHOLES, a niger killed Seth Rich.

Have any of you assholes ever been near DC?  You drive 1 mile away from the White House and its crawling with niggers.  You take a little arrogan white asshole like that, and put him in a black neighborhood filled with brothers, and he's likely to get shot.  Thats all there is to this.


No boogy man, no "DEEP STATE", no Clinton Hit man.  You assholes always come up with STUPID PARANOID conspiracy theories!  It was just one of the millions of violent blacks roaming around Washinton DC.
