Investigator: Murdered DNC Staffer Seth Rich Was In Contact With Wikileaks

Seth Rich, a DNC staffer, was killed on July 10 in Washington, D.C.

Seth Rich, a DNC staffer, was killed on July 10 in Washington, D.C.

It’s been close to a year since Seth Rich, the 27-year-old computer expert who worked for the DNC, was murdered – shot twice in the back without anything of value taken from him.  Rich was found alive and in shock, before he bled out – his death ruled nothing more than a botched robbery.

Many believe Rich was a victim retaliation for being the source who provided Wikileaks with a trove of DNC emails. Rumors were fueled by the odd circumstances surrounding his death, the sudden retirement of D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier five weeks after the murder and an email John Podesta sent to Hillary’s inner circle about making an example of a suspected leaker.

In the aftermath of the shooting, the Rich family hired a private investigator – Rich Wheeler, a former D.C. homicide detective who says evidence on Seth Rich’s laptop suggests he was in contact with WikiLeaks prior to his death. Of note, Wheeler does not have possession of the laptop in question – however, he said specific information which will be released on Tuesday (5/16).

Furthermore, Wheeler believes there has been a cover-up:

“The police department nor the FBI have been forthcoming,” said Wheeler. “They haven’t been cooperating at all. I believe that the answer to solving his death lies on that computer, which I believe is either at the police department or either at the FBI. I have been told both.”

When we asked Wheeler if his sources have told him there is information that links Rich to Wikileaks, he said, “Absolutely. Yeah. That’s confirmed.”

“I have a source inside the police department that has looked at me straight in the eye and said, ‘Rod, we were told to stand down on this case and I can’t share any information with you.’ –Fox5

So a former D.C. homicide detective, hired by the Rich family, claims he was told directly by a source within D.C. police that they were told to stand down.

Furthermore, Wheeler said there’s more to come:

I don’t think it comes from the chief’s office, but I do believe there is a correlation between the mayor’s office and the DNC and that is the information that will come out [Tuesday].

Let’s not forget Julian Assange heavily implied that Seth Rich was a source, and Wikileaks offered a $130,000 reward for information leading to the murderer:

Right before the election Dr. Steve Pieczenik – ex deputy Sec. of State under Kissinger – told the world that the Wikileaks releases were part of a ‘counter-coup’ in which elements within the US Intelligence community decided Hillary Clinton and the globalist interests she represented couldn’t be allowed to reach the Oval Office. In response, US citizens – not Russia, gave the DNC / Podesta / Hillary emails to Wikileaks for a timed release schedule during the 2016 Presidential race.

 

How Wikileaks changed the course of history

When the Wikileaks were released, there was no table of contents or any other guide. Instead, these were raw – DKIM verified emails, which would take nothing short of a massive crowd-sourced effort to process and decipher. Within days, however, dots were rapidly being connected across various message boards – mostly 4chan and Reddit’s “The_Donald”. New discoveries reached massive audiences through digital megaphones provided by social media giants Twitter and Facebook and eventually made it into the mainstream.

The results of the online efforts were staggering, as the world witnessed revelations of “Pay for Play” by Clinton Foundation donors who funded ISIS, the DNC cheating against Bernie Sanders, MSM collusion with the Clinton campaign, Hillary’s dreams of open borders, “unaware and compliant” citizens, #SpiritCooking, Wet Works, and evidence of Aliens and Zero Point Energy – (either that or a completely insane Edgar Mitchell (15052)).

If Seth Rich was, in fact, one of Wikileaks’ sources, it’s far less of a stretch to conclude that he was murdered. Moreover, what’s left of the Russian hacking narrative is now – in my opinion, moot. More to come Tuesday, when this could get even more interesting.
