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.

Seth Rich downloaded and handed off the thumb drive to someone who worked with WikiLeakes. His murder may or may not be related actually. He wasn't killed by Clinton, but Podesta was going to have him killed. Other street forces in Seth's bad part of town intervened.

Full doc: Clinton-DNC secret agreement dated August 26, 2015

"HFA's obligations under this agreement, and the release of the Base Amounts each month are conditioned on the following:

  1. With respect to the hiring of a DNC Communications Director, the DNC agrees that no later than September 11, 2015 it will hire one of two candidates previously identified as acceptable to HFA.
  2. With respect to the hiring of future DNC senior staff in the communications, technology, and research departments, in the case of vacancy, the DNC will maintain the authority to make the final decision as between candidates acceptable to HFA.
  3. Agreement by the DNC that HFA personnel will be consulted and have joint authority over strategic decisions over the staffing, budget, expenditures, and general election related communications, data, technology, analytics, and research. The DNC will provide HFA advance opportunity to review on-line or mass email, communications that features a particular Democratic primary candidate. This does not include any communications related to primary debates – which will be exclusively controlled by the DNC. The DNC will alert HFA in advance of mailing any direct mail communications that features a particular Democratic primary candidate or his or her signature.
  4. If asked by a State Party, the DNC will encourage the State Party to become a participant in the Victory Fund.
  5. "Once HFA has raised the first $1,200,000 and it has been distributed to the DNC, HFA will be granted complete and seamless access to all research work product and tools (not including any research or tracking the DNC may engage in relating to other Democratic candidates).

    "The parties also agree that they will enter into an agreed upon voter file licensing agreement. As consideration for that agreement, HFA will raise an additional $250,000 into the Victory Fund that will be distributed to the DNC no later than March 31, 2016.

"In addition, HFA will also raise funds for the Victory Fund that will distributed to the DNC in excess of the $1,200,000 monthly base amount (Excess Amount). The Excess Amount raised by HFA that is distributed to the DNC will be spent on the DNC's data, technology, analytics, research, and communications operations as directed by HFA (Special Projects). Although the DNC will remain responsible for the day to day execution of those Special Projects, HFA will determine (in consultation with the DNC) the Special Project's scope, strategy, staffing, budget, and manner of execution.

"Finally, HFA agrees that on a monthly basis the Victory Fund will provide the DNC a list of receipts and disbursements from the Victory Fund. The DNC agrees to provide monthly financial reports to HFA as it relates to the use of the funds distributed by the Victory Fund to the DNC.

"In the event that there is a disagreement in the operation of this agreement or the use of the Base Amount, the DNC department head and their HFA counterpart will meet and confer to resolve the matter. If that fails to resolve the disagreement, then you and I will resolve it. If there is still no resolution the DNC Chair and the HFA Chair will resolve.

"Nothing in this agreement shall be construed to violate the DNC's obligation of impartiality and neutrality through the Nominating process. All activities performed under this agreement will be focused exclusively on preparations for the General Election and not the Democratic Primary. Further we understand you may enter into similar agreements with other candidates.

"The attached Joint Fundraising Agreement will be entered into by HFA and the DNC (as well as by State Parties).

"This agreement will be reviewed on March 31, 2016 and either party may terminate any prospective obligation at that time.

"If this memorandum correctly summarizes our agreement, please reply by email with the text – 'Agreed by DNC'."

I'm starting to think that "Russians" was a Hillary Campaign term for Socialist Democrats that were opposing her candidacy and that everyone that wasn't in on the code thought Russians meant Russians from Russia.  It would make sense because the Russian Russians were anti-Trump and the Social Democrat Russians were anti-Hillary.

See walnut sauce.

 Rebranding the party as we watch folks. Foist it all onto the evil Hillery stick a catchy new face on it and viola. Socialist party.

Seith Rich was never prperly investigated and a lot of questions, a mugger out at 5 AM???? doubt it?? Lots of unanswered questions and even the investigators spoke up then were silenced??? changed their tune?? Don't forget Wikileaks offered a $25000 reward? WHY suspect Seith was working for Wikileaks and was the source. Suspect Donna is confirming this as well.

Jeff Sessions you need to appoint a Specia Prosecuter to look into the Clintons and there are a lot of scandals and serious questions.

There needs to be a White House Petition to fire Attorney Gerbil Jeff Sessions and replace him with somebody who is awake and aware enough to appoint Special Prosecutors to investigate Hitlery and her KKK (Klinton Krime Klan) and the DNC and DW-S, etc.

Seymour Hersch said he has an FBI source who read their investigation file and they think it's entirely possible Seth Rich actually was shot in an attempted robbery. He lived in a shit part of DC and there had been like 10 other late night robberies or attempted robberies where they shot the attempted victim and ran in the weeks before Seth Richs death.

He had scrapes on his knuckles and was shot twice in the back with a 22 from some distance since no powder burns, so he was probably running away after they pulled the gun, but he was alive and coherent when the police got there, he didn't die until he got to Medstar. 

Lots of people survive being shot by a 22, but Seth Rich was killed at the hospital. None of the leaked files were hacked over the internet, they were all locally copied, which is probably why Seth Rich was killed, since he found out how Hillary and her strongarm victim DNC were robbing Bernie all along.

Some states have laws against people profiting  with book and movie deals stemming from their notorious crimes. Somebody better prosecute this wildebeest before the movie deal comes.

Seth Rich's murder scared her?  What does she know about who that she is not saying?

Richard Whitney's picture

Was she in cahoots with Seth Rich in the hack? Is that what motivated this? Did Loretta Lynch clue in WJC on the tarmac that it was Seth Rich, AND possibly others?

Then you could see all this self-serving revelation as a life insurance policy.

I still want to know when the 9/11 arrests start happening.......

We will never forget. Remember?

She should still feel fearful. That other bitch it's still out there

All mainstream media is ignoring every statement Donna has made..... Far too many people still don't know. Spread the word. Write your elected representatives and put pressure on them to take action. The deep state does not feel the heat yet. Nothing will happen until they do....

Mmm yeah, I think it’s a safe bet that it wasn’t the Russians.

If the Russians did that, The Buffalo can rest assured Weinstein "came" to the rescue ...

 I like how they implied she was cool when Hillery was loosing her shit. You just know in reality everyone in the room was scared shitless.

Remember Seth Rich, the DNC whistleblower that was murdered for showing America the truth.

Not a hack, a local copy released by an employee upset with how the corrupt DNC was run.

Excellent point. Nobody paying attention learned anything new.

 So the rebranding is going to be a BS multi cultural kinda thing. Run by the same bankster scum of course. With Madea here leading the way.

"While she doesn’t elaborate on her reasons for suspecting that Rich’s death may have been a homicide..." Hell Donna, he was shot twice in the back! Start there!

Rewriting history.
The WaPo covered it so that they could spin it their way.

How and when do we think Donna will die?
Or has she done enough (mentioning Seth) to ensure that she stays alive?

rockstone's picture

What's she so worried about? Doesn't she know it was a robbery?

Stan522's picture

We all know Seth was killed because they discovered he was the one who gave information to WikiLeaks and now Donna knows it that way too, so why is the DC Police and the FBI still stupified over it......? At the very least, investigate it, not just close the door on it and ignore it.....?

Some thought for food kiddies.

The FBI investigated Brad Pitt for child abuse.

The FBI did not investigate Vince Foster's death even though he was Deputy White House Counsel.  The left it up to the Park Police.

The FBI did not investigate Seth Rich's murder even though they were investigating Russians meddling with the DNC.  They left it to the local police.

We can't find something if we don't look.

p.s. See Anthony Weiner and Huma Abedin's home computer.

She wasn't afraid of the Russians.  What a stupid lie.  Anybody that actually is that stupid need to get the hell away from our political structure.  Being afraid of the forces that killed Seth Rich, now that makes sense.  She is either stupid or a snake.  I am going with snake because it's washington.

"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."

Exactly.  If she can't figure that out from a supervisory position then she needs to find different work.  I don't trust her either.

Hello Ms. I thought the same thing and actually used "snakes" in my post before reading yours:)
