Shock Claim From Inside DNC: Seth Rich Leaked Emails To Moscow Lawyer One Month Before His Murder

ZeroPointNow's picture

Content originally published at

With the 'Russian hacking' conspiracy theory hanging by a gossamer thread, a new claim from a prominent Seth Rich investigator casts further doubt that the DNC servers were breached by a foreign actor - yet maintains the charge of Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. election: Seth Rich leaked the DNC emails to the same Moscow attorney who met with Trump Jr. in June 2016. 

According to Radar Online, an anonymous staffer currently employed by the DNC contacted prominent attorney, GOP lobbyist, and Seth Rich investigator Jack Burkman with the claim that Rich met with Natalia Veselnitskaya one month before his murder - giving her a cache of DNC emails later released by WikiLeaks.

“They claimed the Russian lawyer had met with Rich about a month before his death, four to six weeks, and Seth provided her with emails that were, apparently, leaked later on WikiLeaks." -Jack Burkman

Of note, Veselnitskaya - who doesn't speak English, would have needed an interpreter to meet with Rich unless he spoke Russian.

Jack Burkman represents the family of Seth Rich, and has been pushing the Seth Rich - Russia connection for months, calling for an investigation into links to the murder. In January, he told Infowars Rich was murdered by Russia after uncovering evidence that they hacked the DNC.

In addition to creating the website, Burkman is staging a reenactment of Rich's murder next Tuesday.

'Russian Hacker' narrative in it's death throes...

After serious doubt was cast on Crowdstrike, the firm which produced the evidence of Russian hacking - and recent forensic analysis revealed at least the Guccifer 2.0 portion of the leaked emails could have only been accessed locally, the Russian hacking narrative is on incredibly thin ice. Seth Rich leaking to the Russians would breathe new life into that narrative - however it would also suggest Rich was a traitor. 

One has to wonder why Seth Rich would leak to Veselnitskaya instead of going straight to WikiLeaks? Rich was an incredibly patriotic American who loved Democracy and pandas. Why would he meet with a shadowy Russian lawyer who doesn't speak English to hand over a trove of DNC emails?


Is it possible that Burkman was fed disinformation by the DNC in order to maintain the Russian interference narrative? Was Seth Rich one of the hundreds of people unmasked by the Obama admin?

I'm just going to leave this here...

Updated to specify that only the Guccifer 2.0 files have been implicated in the local access claim.

So you got Radar Online is owned by American Media.

American Media also owns National Enquirer which has been in the tank for Trump since forever.

Billionaire Ron Burkle owns a major stake in American Media. 

Burkle's a bit of an enigma, even for a billionaire.

He paid Bill Clinton $15million to travel the world together but didn't support Hillary. He raised money for Kasich. While Burkle definitely leans left, it seems more out of a desire to ingratiate himself in the Hollywood lifestyle than passion. Well, a passion for hot chicks rather than a passion for politics.

Burkle seems like an average guy who's had phenomenal success and wants to parlay that success into access to hot chicks.

When Clinton and Burkle flew around the world on Burkle's 757, the plane was referred to as Air Fuck One.

The deep state wants its thermonuclear World war III with Russia so no lie is too big to pass on to the public. Seth Rich should it be disclosed that he released the information and NOT Russia needs to be discredited. So what lie do they tell us now? That HE gave it to the Russians. LoL LoL

Fuck the deep state!!! 

ableman28's picture

This story is absolute bullshit and its finally worth the time to start calling it on crap like this that leads people to win the Edgar Welch award for swallowing this kind of stupidity.

Rich's parents have repeatedly disavowed, since that tape, any relationship with Burkman PRECISELY because he came up on his own with this crazy conspiracy stuff.

Russia doesn't have to introduce this kind of crap into public dialog but doing so works really well with gullible idiots here.  My guess is that we are doing it to ourselves.

Now, contrails, yep them are real.  I don't see why people don't understand that chemicals are being introduced into our atmosphere that are making mens sperm count go down and causing limp dick commentaries like this to be written by men who couldn't get it up for a 20 year old.  Why aren't we talking more about that?

Seth Rich leaking to the Russians would breathe new life into that narrative - however it would also suggest Rich was a traitor. 

Um, might even suggest he was murdered by those who considered him so

The closer the Swamp Creatures get to a noose... the more bizaare narratives and efforts to get rid of Trump will ramp up.  The stakes here for the Swamp Critters are MASSIVE

Beyond smelly, the deep state is desperate and has no idea how to get the cat back in the bag. in fact numerous cats are out of the bag and fighting amongst themselves now ! Very fun to watch and well past time.

Publicus_Reanimated's picture

The article is absolute total BS.  Any author who identifies Burkman as "representing the family of Seth Rich" and leaves it there is either stupid or evil.  The man works for Hillary Clinton.

Stinkytofu's picture

any reason he can't work for both?

ZeroPointNow's picture

Please provide a link to Jack Burkman working for Hillary Clinton and I'll be happy to update the article. The only person saying he isn't representing the Rich family AFAIK is financial advisor Ed Butowsky. 

On the other hand, here's a press conference from Nov. 2016 where Burkman is literally standing with Joel and Mary Rich, clearly stating that he represents them (full video). The claim is repeated in several publications. 

If Burkman is no longer representing or working with the family, I'll gladly issue a correction. 

goober's picture

It all depends on what you may define as representing the family ? Are many illusions created to distort many matters ? This would not be the first time you may have gotten it wrong or were misled ? Just saying probably time to go further down the rabbit holes for any actual truth of many matters before us. So aff the only person I have seen who seems to be telling the entire truth is the detective Rod Wheeler, the black guy from DC. This entire story is full of distortions, not your article, lies and manipulations from the get go. There is a connection between the Seth Rich murder and the DEMs deep state cabal. Maybe it will be exposed finally like so mamy other deceptions and lies we all live under here in USA today. We all know none of it is anything new, but it has finally become time to do something about all of it and let the chips fall where they may ! 

ZeroPointNow's picture

It seems as though the distraught Rich family accepted help from several people; detective Rod Wheeler, Attorney Jack Burkman, Financier Ed Butowski, Attorney Joseph Ingrisano of Katuk Rock, LLP, and Brad Bauman - a Democratic political consultant that was "assigned" to the family by the DNC. 

Wheeler seemed legit, though the Rich family disavowed his statments linking Rich to the Wikileaks release, and he backpedaled on his statements. 

Jack Burkman seems like controlled opposition considering that neither he nor the Radar article consider that the DNC could have been feeding him disinformation, if that even happened. 

I agree, more digging needs to be done. 

digitalrevolution's picture

Opportunistic attorneys crawl all over these "newsworthy victims." I've seen it happen in person a few times. It's a confusing mess when several get involved.

short screwed's picture

To me it seems obvious that dnc know the truth will come out that Rich was the leaker. Rather than admit he was an angry Bernie supporter who saw his candidate was being screwed by HRC, Podesta, Wasserman, CNN, NY Times and WaPo, they want to control the narrative by dragging his name through the mud. By labeling him a traitor, they can keep the Russia narrative going (while still having no evidence Russia was involved).

Antivenom's picture

Awans handed the emails to Seth, Seth turned over to Wikileaks. It is that simple.

fishpoem's picture

Excellent logic. And almost certainly correct. Lession #1: never underestimate the power, scope, and evil intent of the Clintons. Aided and abetted by deep pockets cronies like Soros and Giustra, no one who crosses them is safe anywhere on this planet. Or so it would appear...

The story sounds, like a lunatic's dream. Distraction.

Burkman is a Deep State plant, and Veselovskaya was peaking very good English in a recent RT interview I saw.

This is a BS piece.

opport.knocks's picture

She speaks no English and it appears she believes was just used as part a larger vendetta by one of the usual suspects, Bill Browder.


ZeroPointNow's picture

Then she lied to the court...

And I guess she didn't need that former State department interpreter present at the Trump Jr. meeting. 

Is this the interveiw you saw from 11 days ago? 

Stinkytofu's picture

having an interpreter present does not necessarily indicated no, or even limited, english ability.


putin often has an english interpreter available.

and i'd rate putin's english as pretty gosh darn good, even better'n "W".....

oncemore's picture

she did not .

even if she speaks english, SHE MUST NOT.

She may request a translation and she knows why. I would do the same, as foreigner  and I advise you to do the same abroad.

Radar online is a cheap nasty hollywood gossip mag, and Erin Humphrey is one of its biggest air heads, treat this shit with the contempt it deserves. And seriously zeroPointNow, what the heck are you doing polluting this site with this stinking fake news

ZeroPointNow's picture

I'm not supporting Burkman's claims, which I thought I made clear throughout the article. If he's a psyop and this is the latest angle the deep state is going with as the Russian hacking story dies, people should know. If he's not a psyop and the DNC is feeding him disinfo, people should also know.

This is no different than reporting on the Fusion GPS 'dossier' which was 100% bullshit leaked by cancerous Buzzfeed, yet was used to justify a FISA warrant. 

TeaClipper's picture

The smell of complete and utter bullshit is strong on this one. "Anonymous staffer" "Russia" big false flag.

Mzhen's picture

Burkman is a self-promoter and not someone to be trusted.  And Seth Rich's family would be surprised to find out that Burkman represents them.  More controlled oppo.

DEMIZEN's picture

even if that was true how is this russian fault? to me this is just another piece of evidence showing that set rich got executed by paid cankles tools

opport.knocks's picture

The "Seth Rich survived and is in protective custody" (in Israel not USA) theory is far more compelling than this one. It explains the missing laptop, no coroner's death sertificate, no active murder investigation and bizarre family reactions all at once.

George Webb is likely Mossad and Israel much preferred Trump to Clinton, see "Trump is the Swamp" (they start naming names at 9:20 ). So there is clear motive there.

Plus Trump's financial and personal ties to the US J-Mafia (starting with Roy Cohn) are well known.

So they got Rich to leak info damaging to the DNC and Clinton to Wikileaks, did the perfect fake murder cover up, and used their "owned" consultants and media to blame Russia. Brilliant

HoyeruNew's picture

nope. Too complicated. doesn't pass the Occam's razor test, sorry.

Did Seth Rich leak the DNC e-mails to the Russians?   

("Rich met with Natalia Veselnitskaya one month before his murder - giving her a cache of DNC emails later released by WikiLeaks.")




Did Seth Rich discover that the Russians hacked the DNC server?   

("In January, he told Infowars Rich was murdered by Russia after uncovering evidence that they hacked the DNC.")


Can't be both.

Bullshit detector is redlining.

trailer park boys's picture

The Russians did it, dammit! You pick the scenario.

JailBanksters's picture

So I if understand American Law then ....

Seth should be executed as a Traitor for leaking the Criminal Activities of People in Government and their associated agencies while the people that committed the Criminal Actions are free to go. Oh wait, he was executed ... but wait there's more.

And the Sanctions are still going ahead because Russia hacked them even though this Traitor to the Criminals in Power gave them the same Information.


It just makes so much more sense when you write it down.




SmallerGovNow2's picture

Of course it was the Russians!  How else could the senate and house pass the sanctions bill with only a hand full of dissenters?  And a "republican" president has vowed to sign it and GIVE AWAY some of his executive powers!  IT MUST BE THE RUSSIANS DAMN IT!!!
