According to a report by Fox News, Seth Rich, a young staffer with the DNC, sent more than 44,000 emails to WikiLeaks, making him the source of the DNC revelations last summer, not Russia, which has been the position of Julian Assange all along.
From Fox News:
A federal investigator who reviewed an FBI forensic report — generated within 96 hours after DNC staffer Seth Rich’s murder — detailing the contents Rich’s computer said 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.
“I have seen and read the emails between Seth Rich and WikiLeaks,” the federal investigator told Fox News, confirming the MacFadyen connection. He said the emails are in possession of the FBI, while the stalled case is in the hands of the Washington Police Department.
The revelation is consistent with the findings of Rod Wheeler, a former DC homicide detective and Fox News contributor and whose private investigation firm was hired by a third party on behalf of Rich’s family to probe the case.
“My investigation up to this point shows there was some degree of email exchange between Seth Rich and WikiLeaks,” Wheeler said. “I do believe that the answers to who murdered Seth Rich sits on his computer on a shelf at the DC police or FBI headquarters.”
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.
Around 1 am on July 10, 2016, in the heat of the presidential election campaign, Seth Rich was gunned down in Washington, DC just feet from his front door. According to police, the assailant or assailants did not take “his wallet, cell phone, keys, watch or necklace worth about $2,000.” Police have “no suspects and no substantial leads as to who the killer or killers may be.”
Twelve days later, WikiLeaks began releasing the emails that exposed the DNC.
Of course one is free to draw one’s own conclusions but consider the choices we have: What is more likely, that this tragedy was nothing more than a strange of coincidence, indeed one of the strangest in American political history, or that this is exactly what it looks like – a political assassination?
I’m putting my money on the latter!
