Donna Brazile Says She "Feared For Her Life" After Seth Rich Was Killed

Tyler Durden's picture

Perhaps the most shocking revelation contained in the excerpts from former DNC Chairwoman Donna Brazile’s book was, unsurprisingly, buried in a Washington Post overview of the various allegations (and frankly, we’re surprised the Post, given its status as a protector of the Washington establishment, deigned to publish it).

In the aftermath of Wikileaks’ decision to publish a cache of emails stolen from the DNC’s servers, Donna Brazile says she became increasingly paranoid about both possible Russian efforts to sway the election. Surprisingly, she says top Democrats initially instructed her not to discuss her concerns with others.

But even more than the Russians, Brazile says she feared possible retribution from shadowy elements within the campaign and the Democratic Party who might blame her for the leak. Her fears only intensified, she says, after the mysterious shooting of former campaign staffer Seth Rich, who the authorities said was killed during a robbery, though many so-called conspiracy theorists have speculated about a possible Democratic plot to kill Rich for his role in leaking the stash of DNC emails to Wikileaks. Brazile's anxiety eventually spiraled out of control, to the point where she feared for her own life while serving as interim chairwoman of the DNC.

Brazile describes her mounting anxiety about Russia’s theft of emails and other data from DNC servers, the slow process of discovering the full extent of the cyberattacks and the personal fallout. She likens the feeling to having rats in your basement: “You take measures to get rid of them, but knowing they are there, or have been there, means you never feel truly at peace.”


Brazile writes that she was haunted by the still-unsolved murder of DNC data staffer Seth Rich and feared for her own life, shutting the blinds to her office window so snipers could not see her and installing surveillance cameras at her home. She wonders whether Russians had placed a listening device in plants in the DNC executive suite.


At first, Brazile writes of the hacking, top Democratic officials were “encouraging us not to talk about it.” But she says a wake-up moment came when she visited the White House in August 2016, for President Obama’s 55th birthday party. National security adviser Susan E. Rice and former attorney general Eric Holder separately pulled her aside quietly to urge her to take the Russian hacking seriously, which she did, she writes.

While she doesn’t elaborate on her reasons for suspecting that Rich’s death may have been a homicide, just the fact that Brazile says she, too, suspected that something nefarious might’ve been afoot is reason enough to take a second look at Rich’s death. Of course, if it’s true that Rich was killed as punishment for leaking the emails, then that would of course invalidata most of the evidence supporting the Russia interference narrative that has been propagated by the Democrats and their partners in the intelligence community.

Jeff Sessions has prosecutorial jurisdiction in local and federal courts in DC. Donna must have more powerful friends.

I suspect that this is all Brazile knows.  The Clintons always thought she was a useful idiot and trusted her with no meaningful secrets whatsoever.  Otherwise, she would be dead already.

The New Feudalism's picture

She’s not dead already because she’s cut from the same cloth as the Clintons. She’s just smart enough to know to get out in front of the story.

 I doubt it. She is a go along to get along democrap. Doing what she was told to do.

Donna has been a stalwart swamp denizen for decades. The difference between her and HRC was opportunity, and now hubris. Could be Donna is given the first swipe in Hillary’s take down at least in part because of Hillary’s notorious racism.

[Hillary was] screaming at her staff, “you f – – – ing idiots, you were supposed to have this thing set up for me and you’ve screwed it up!   If that f – – – ing bastard wins we all hang from nooses!   Lauer’s finished…and if I lose it’s all on you ass – – – – s for screwing this up.”

It begins.  The Matron Mother of the Drow is not pleased.  Insolent Males and other Slaves will suffer her wrath.

Dilluminati's picture

It's a hard way to go, but she has to go..  but quote: "It's a really hard way to go" but that of course is what Hillary should have expected.

Her screaming at Donna?  After she tossed her career into the shitter for a debate question?   

I might buy Brazille's book myself!

No wonder she was frightened, everybody who crosses the Clinton Crime family ends up dead.

The clinton body count, still growing.. maybe by shining the light on the Clinton's they won't kill Donna now?

Donna seems hoping it's not DC cops shining flashlight on her.

Much, with lawyers Donna likely has secreted, hmmm....

Interim DNC chairman Donna Brazile, the first black woman to hold the position, was singled out by Hillary during the rant.   She screamed at Donna, “I’m so sick of your face.   You stare at the wall like a brain dead buffalo, while letting that f – – – ing Lauer get away with this.   What are you good for, really?   Get the f – – – to work  janitoring this mess – do I make myself clear?” 

A female NBC executive said that Donna Brazile looked at Mrs. Clinton and never flinched, which seemed to enrage Hillary all the more.

.....and people wonder why shes throwing Hillary under the bus?

".....and people wonder why shes throwing Hillary under the bus?"

I wonder what information Donna Brazile has that ISN'T in the book. You know, the ace in the hole protection.

Donna Brazile: You go girl. You are the woman Hillary should not have verbally abused. More power to you. Revenge is sweet.

One day, a statue of Donna Brazile will be erected.

Lock Brazile up in a cell adjoining Hillary's cell in the graybar hotel the Bureau of Prisons operates in Florence, Colorado.

Come on. If she walks, and Hillary was wearing an orange pantsuit for a long, long, time, you know you would be fine with that.

the cuts are coming faster and faster, as well as closer and closer.

what will be the response?   a few unfortunate nail-gun accidents, or a sudden trip to a non-extraditable country?

One step closer to hanging Killary.

Even this humanoid knows his name was Seth Rich.

Sessions has recused himself from all violent crimes, so it's ok to write about now.

I dunno,seems incredible,but could the seemingly invincible Clinton Crime family be getting too high-maintenance even for the swamp?

All politicians should be in constant fear for their life. That's the nature of political power. Maintaining a unethical and illegitimate monopoly on violence ain't easy.
