Was Seth Rich, DNC Staffer Murder Victim, the Wikileaks DNC Contact?
Julian Assange tried to tell us back in 2016 that something wasn’t right about the death of Seth Rich. He even posted an additional $20,000 reward for information leading to his murderer. Although he stopped short of saying that Rich was the actual leaker.
ANNOUNCE: WikiLeaks has decided to issue a US$20k reward for information leading to conviction for the murder of DNC staffer Seth Rich.

Strangely, no one has come forward to collect any rewards, which combined with Metro police $25,000 and GOP lobbyist Jack Burkman for $130,000 are now at $175,000. ‘Evidence’ on Rich’s laptop reportedly reveals communication with Wikileaks.

Conspiracy or fact?
Rod Wheeler is a retired DC Homicide Detective hired by a third party to get to the bottom of the case. But his information is being blasted by the family.

The family says it’s all a “conspiracy theory.” They don’t believe emails to Wikileaks prove that Seth Rich was the leaker. But as far back as the day he died, this murder has had the air of something other than what it seemed.
Police called his death a robbery attempt at first, and are now working on several theories, yet the investigation has “stalled.” Nothing was stolen. Seth Rich was shot in the back, although authorities did not release the autopsy results to report the number of times. Rich did “voter expansion data” for the DNC and was killed just a block from his home just after 4 a.m. on July 10, 2016.
Update: the link to Fox News no longer exists. A reader sent us this link to replace it from an archive.
“An FBI forensic report of Rich’s computer — generated within 96 hours after Rich’s murder — showed he made contact with WikiLeaks through Gavin MacFadyen, a now-deceased American investigative reporter, documentary filmmaker, and director of WikiLeaks who was living in London at the time, the federal source told Fox News…
The federal investigator, who requested anonymity, said 44,053 emails and 17,761 attachments between Democratic National Committee leaders, spanning from January 2015 through late May 2016, were transferred from Rich to MacFadyen before May 21.
On July 22, just 12 days after Rich was killed, WikiLeaks published internal DNC emails that appeared to show top party officials conspired to stop Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont from becoming the party’s presidential nominee. That controversy resulted in Debbie Wasserman Schultz resigning as DNC chairperson.”
So why the secrecy? Why is that laptop sitting on a shelf somewhere? We know….the Russians did it.
