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.

 "Rich’s death may have been a homicide"  

Ugh, it was definetely a homicide.  Motive is the question at hand.

She meant to say "it may have been an Arkencide" but the publisher's lawyers edited.

What evidence? I am waiting?

But Donna in her book sticks with that Russia, Russia, Russia hack of the DNC.

 Where was Donna that night?

 

 Jus sayin sociopathic BS does follow certain patterns?

RedbirdsCool's picture

So far, it sounds like Donna Brazile's book backs up Trump's fears and demolishes the Dems/MSM 2016 story. 

 

Why would Brazile want to replace Hillary with Biden after the 9/11/16 Hillary fall if it was only "pneumonia"?? Tells me that it was a much worse health issue. 

FoggyWorld's picture

But she had no power to do that.  Some of this is self-protection writing.

The dead are not amused.....

Seth is really pissed & he is not sure if his murderers were Clinton or Obama minions?

But “What difference does it make?” He is dead....

The revelations by Donna appear to be structured to accuse the dangerous grifters from Arkansas....

But it feels like a Chicago job....

Overall the dead don’t care......

The last few million were dispatched by Clinton/Bush/Obama but not necessarily in that order....

GeezerGeek's picture

Perhaps the dead don't care, but I'm still curious why Rich's parents don't really seem to care. Or are they simply too scared to care?

Geezer....valid question.  I've asked the same myself.  They're dirty.

Brilliant!

It fits. Attack Clinton to cover for Obama.

Donna Brazile may have feared for her own life and still be doing so because she was involved and knows too much. Remember Private Detectives said it was Donna Brazile who contacted another black Obama female, Washington Mayor Muriel Bowser and they exerted pressure not only to kill the Seth Rich investigation but to prevent police and others from revealing any information or making public statements. Wasserman Shultz was also involved in the coverup.

Ask yourself this. If Brazile is now saying she was in fear of snipers, why was she then saying the idea of Seth Rich being murdered over the DNC leaks a big lie.

She knows it wasn't a lie. She knows that if she was asked to arrange a Washington coverup, there was something to hide.

She knows she might be someone the hit squad and those who sent them out want silenced.

She's not as smart as she thinks, and not as dumb as I though. But not by much.  But now I'm starting to get worried about tomorrows headline: 'Donna Brazile hit by Meteorite in her bed last night.  Unfortunately, the house was destroy and burned to the ground so there is nothing left.'  When asked for her reaction, kankles' replys,  Oh, what a shame. She was such a lovely person. I'm going to miss her.  hmmmm

If Donna here you need to contact Assage now and gtfo.  

A fake admission would not have framed HRC in a bad light

Tak'em down Donna. Ruthless people eating their own. Love it!!! There must be a God -- and he must work in mysterious ways -- because some of this shit is too weird. Hollywood's going down, the DNC is going down ... hell, this is only the tip of the iceberg! The Great American Reset. And I hope the Bushs and Obama sink with the rest of the bilge.

"At first, Brazile writes of the hacking, top Democratic officials were 'encouraging us not to talk about it.'"

Safe to assume those are the same folks who refused to turn over the DNC server to the FBI. If Jeff Sessions weren't MIA he could ask Brazile for names.

And it's noteworthy that Brazile"s fear after Seth Rich was murdered is the highest testimony that she didn't buy into the MSM bitched robbery meme but rather felt it was an inside hit that could just as easily target her or otherwise why draw the blinds so she couldn't be seen?!

If Sessions can't stand up to the job he needs to be fired 5 4 3 2 1.

Fred123's picture

It takes time. Sessions (I hope) is waiting. The dems are imploding and turning on each other. This is the beginning of a huge flood of dems talking to save themselves. Hillary will be easy meat in a few weeks.

Donna Brazile probably saved her life by pubilicy stating this. That is why Monica Lewinsky is still alive.

Also, snipers are only used in Jason Bourne movies. The Clintons have much neater ways of disposing of people - see Ron Brown and Vince Foster.

Or John Ashe. Hopefully, Donna Brazile is wise enough not to buy a bench press.

You would think she would reach to Seth's spirit; see if she need be worried.

nsurf9's picture

I never thought it possible.  I must now admit it, I have officially forgiven Donna Brazilen for giving Hildebeast the presidential election primary campaigne questions.

Because, I darnsure believe her "feared for my live" story.  And, you gotta respect her "balls" for putting this stuff in a publication.

bardot63's picture

She's covering her ass.  She knows more than she put in any fucking book.  Probably knows who killed Seth Rich.  Certainly knew about Hill's uranium deals. Every fucking third grader knew about that.  Didn't say a word about Hill's takeover, so she's complicit.  This bitch is trying to cover her very wide ass.

The US political system can be summed up by only bread and circuses, while the real crimes are perpetrated by the elites themselves. Oh look, a Russian!

LadyAtZero's picture

I am really quite amazed she mentioned Seth Rich at all.    The "official story"  for so long has been first of all "no story,"  because "clearly he was just murdered...he lived in a lousy neighborhood, full of violence....."   and  second,   well,  no second.   The Demos  just don't talk about Seth Rich.  

May she's worried she's been set up to take the fall for his murder... It's another story she has to get in front of,  according to her lawyers.

There's no logic in the Federation's move here.

The main role of the FBI is simply to protect the corrupt dealings of the Swamp and Deep State.

Obama and the Clintons could sell all America's military secrets to Russia and China for personal profit, the FBI's role would be to make sure they got away with it.

 

You have the head of the FBI exonerating Clinton even before doing an investigation, covering up the corruption of Uranium sales to Russia for profit, the murder of Seth Rich by the DNC, protection of rampant international pedophile rings for the Establishment.

The FBI only goes into action to attack those who threaten the corruption of the Swamp.

The Clintons, Obamas, Bush's along with many others have helped destroy the credibility of the FBI and DOJ.

Wait, what?!

This bitch fears for her life because Seth Rich was ROBBED?!

GeezerGeek's picture

There have been so many lies coming out of the Democrats over this DNC snafu that they keep tripping over each other's lies. Perhaps Donna knows something that we don't, because normally I'd say she has more reason to fear for her life now, after all this Hillary-trashing, than she ever did while with the DNC itself. Is Hillary now rendered incapable of retaliation?

(And how does Bill feel about Hillary's possible removal from public life?)

MsCreant's picture

Maybe Bill is paying her to do this? Even hired the ghost writer?

Hmm..did she write the book herself or did someone make her do it as a prep for deeper disclosures?

"Brazile says she feared possible retribution from shadowy elements within the campaign and the Democratic Party..."

Shadowy elements?!  Who do you suppose she had in mind?

Hard to believe how absolutely venal the Dem Party, and its propaganda arm the MSM, are today. Obama, Rice, Podesta, the Clintons, Perez, Wasserman-Schultz, Jarrett, Axelrod......

Trump pegged it with 'drain the swamp'.
