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.

"... She wonders whether Russians had placed a listening device in plants in the DNC executive suite ..."

talking about being detached from reality ...

So did she bring in the FBI?  No. She kept them out. Remember who was at the top of the government? Her people of color Obama, Lynch, Rice. Corrupt like her.

Donna says in her book that she brought in CrowdStrike with its Chief Technical Officer Dmitri Alperovitch, a Dem operative and Hillary donor, to look at the DNC server.  He told them it was the Russians. Alperovitch is Ukranian, hates Russia. Then after Wikileaks published the Podesta emails, the FBI brought in the same CrowdStrike bunch. Once again, Alperovitch told them the Russians did it. Funny about that.

The Russians also "masked" WI, OH, MI, and PA in operation WOMP!

She still doesn't let a good opportunity to cry Russia, Russia, Russia! These vermin lie so often that they are unable to make sense of what comes from their own mouths.


Emails were leaked, not hacked. Russia is far better at this than we (think we), are. If they did it, we'd never know. Ever.

Lest we forget: It’s ALWAYS been ‘The BUSH/CLINTON Crime Syndicate’ - which itself is but a manifestation of a more covert, darker force.

And the take-away - and DBs revelations are only the "preface" - is that Washington is too corrupt, too far-gone, too lacking in any semblance of ‘moral authority’ – not to mention too inept, too stupid, too brain-dead - to govern.

And Trump - now apparently following the NeoCON ‘War On Humanity' script – not to mention being Wall Street's "Fluffer In Chief" - looks increasingly like he can be included in that Criminal Cabal

And THAT is why Washington HAS TO GO…. ALL OF IT... before its too late.

Notice one thing. They don't even show a picture of this dumb nigger. If they did no one would read this article nor buy her book.

Without a  doubt she did not write her book because she can't read and write.

You ratted on the Queen of Rats. NOW, you should be in fear for your life.

this virtue signalling by yet another corrupt libtard demoN-rat socialist reminds me of how religions re-qrite history to suit their own beleif system

as another poster said below - brazile is one of the rats.

she is now reqriting history - by engaging in the lying, cheating and stealing that is sympotmatic of the DC swamp.

remember, the truth is out there and is not brazile's version of it - she is simply making up stories to hide the truth.

Until now, I didn't even realize Seth was a Data Manager...or Jewish.  I mean, how obvious does all this have to be?

Donna is in CYA, plausible deniability mode.

As their house of cards fails, Donna wants to stay out of jail. Apparently, only bankers are too big to jail. Hopefully, the charges will include treason.

There has to be more to the story coming out soon. Podestas, Seth Rich, Russia collusion fairytale, Benghazi, Uranium 1. Something is making Donna play the slave/black card for protection while she spins her own fantasy of events leading to Clintons demise. These are liars and thieves, lying and theiving. What else is new.

She was quick to shut down any investigations in to Seth Rich by outside investigators.

Things are moving too fast on the story right now.

Soros has not yet sent them talking points.

Just wait. They will all respond with the same catch words and phrases, like the MSM.

shankster's picture

They are still camped out at yesterday's dud ANTIFA rallies.

RICKYBIRD's picture

They are waiting for talking points from John Molesta but he's in hiding. The Hillary people are rudderless.

8 long excruciating years of Nigger Rule is but a painful memory now.

We'll believe the FBI and CIA about King but not about JFK?   Nothing they spew out can be trusted absolutely.

I believe Hillary's words were "like a brain-dead buffalo", describing how Donna sat there speechless while Matt Lauer pasted her and she said nothing in rebuttal.

For Brazil to place herself in the same category as SETH RICH is a LIE!!!  She is simply abandoning ship!!!  Brazil is a cheat, a liar and I'm sure she stole anything possible to try and help Billary get elected.  She could have been involved in the decision making to kill SETH RICH!  Brazil, go to hell!!!

Is Jeff Sessions a real person? Has anyone actually seen him in person?

He stepped out of the woodwork to let us know he was going after the potheads.

Your first mistake is believing even one word coming from her mouth.

So ..hillary is a lying thieving clam who pretty much threw buffalo under the bus, and now buffalo is singing and you don't beleive any of it?

Jeff Sessions last seen playing shuffleboard.

If Brazile was so sure the Russians hacked the DNC and was so fearful, why did she keep the FBI out? 

Wouldn't an innocent, rational person welcome the vast investigatory powers of the FBI and the protection her buddy Obama would provide when Russians were publicly identified???

RICKYBIRD's picture

And guess who Brazile brought in to investigate the DNC server "hack"? - It was CrowdStrike, whose Chief Technical Officer and Dem donor, Ukranian Dmitri Alperovitch, hates Russia. Didn't some other organization use CrowdStrike? Oh, that's right - it was the FBI and NSA and HS and all 17 intelligence agencies in the Wikileaks Podesta emails case.

Why would you be afraid if Seth was killed in a random mugging?! /s

...a random mugging in which no valuables were taken.

If you keep telling the same lie over and over and over again, eventually it becomes Fact.  When is this Russia garbage going to end?

It's not Russia trying to destroy the US. 

BigDawgz's picture

True.  But if you keep saying Russia, Russia, Russia then it gives Sessions an excuse to recuse himself and not investigate your ass.

When you fear for your life because you know too much, it's best to put it all in a book.

Yeah, that's it!

Donna may be Fostercided, if she keeps this up.  Killary is still on the loose.
