Breaking: ‘Complete Panic’ at Highest Levels of DNC Over Kim DotCom’s Seth Rich Announcement
Saturday, an anonymous person who works in Washington DC, alleged on 4Chan’s /pol/ subgroup that high-ranking current and former Democratic Party officials are terrified of the Seth Rich murder investigation.
Is it because Seth Rich, murdered in DC on July 11th of 2016, was possibly involved? DC police concluded the killing was due to a failed robbery though apparently no property was taken from the completely unarmed Rich, who was shot in the back twice.
This comes after internet entrepreneur and hacker, Kim DotCom, admitted on Saturday that he was part of an operation along with Seth Rich to get stolen DNC emails to Wikileaks.
Wait. Didn’t Julian Assange tell us, last year, that the Russians were not involved in bringing the hacked emails to Wikileaks? From the January 3rd, 2017 DailyUKMail.com:
Assange says he is ‘1,000% confident’ that Russia was NOT the source for hacked Democratic emails which were published by WikiLeaks
by Thomas Burrows
Julian Assange claimed Barack Obama is ‘trying to delegitimize Donald Trump’
Reiterated his claims Russia was not behind hacks during presidential election
Emails stolen from DNC and Clinton’s campaign chairman were published online
But Assange said ‘source is not Russian government and it is not a state party’
WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has said Barack Obama is ‘trying to delegitimize the Trump administration’ by claiming the Russian government hacked Democrats’ emails during the bitter presidential election.
Assange, whose interview with Sean Hannity will air on Fox News tonight, also reiterated his claims that Russia was not the source of the hacks.
He told Hannity ‘with a thousand per cent’ confidence that the Russian government was not responsible for emails stolen from the Democratic National Committee and John Podesta, Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman.
Private investigator Rod Wheeler, a former DC Homicide detective himself, revealed last week that evidence suggests Seth Rich had contact with Wikileaks prior to his murder, to the tune of 44,000 emails.
I know for certain that the Seth Rich case has scared the shit out of certain high ranking current and former Democratic Party officials.
This is the reason why they have backed away from impeachment talk. They know the smoking gun is out there, and they’re terrified you will find it, because when you do it will bring the entire DNC, along with a couple of very big name politicians.
It appears that certain DNC thugs were not thorough enough when it came time to cover their tracks. Podesta saying he wanted to “make an example of the leaker” is a huge smoking gun.”
Backed away from impeachment talk? Yes, there is some evidence of that. Then this post as well.
“The behavior is near open panic. To even mention this name in D.C. Circles [sic] will bring you under automatic scrutiny. To even admit that you have knowledge of this story puts you in immediate danger.
If there was no smoke there would be no fire. I have never, in my 20 years of working in D.C. Seen [sic] such a panicked reaction from anyone.
I have strong reason to believe that the smoking gun in this case is out o [sic] the hands of the conspirators, and will be discovered by anon. I know for certain that Podesta is deeply concerned. He’s been receiving anonymous calls and emails from people saying they know the truth. Same with Hillary.”
You decide for yourself. But I’m not ignoring the story.
Kim Dotcom Offers Congress Evidence to Prove Seth Rich Was WikiLeaks Source
by Cassandra Fairbanks
Megaupload founder and friend of Julian Assange has offered to provide Congress with written testimony and proof that murdered Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich was WikiLeaks’ source — if they will include his murder in their Russia investigation.
Kim Dotcom has also now claimed that he was involved in the leak — and that he personally knew Rich.
“Curiouser and curiouser,” it is.
“If Congress includes #SethRich case into their Russia probe I’ll give written testimony with evidence that Seth Rich was @Wikileaks source,” Dotcom tweeted on Friday.
Dotcom also accused the DNC of withholding their servers from the FBI because “Seth Rich ain’t Russia!”
Even more curious is this.
In a bizarre and aggressive statement following Wheeler’s report, Brad Bauman, the spokesman for the Rich family, who just so happens to be a Democratic Party crisis PR consultant, claims that even if an email [to WikiLeaks] was found, it would not be evidence of foul play.
Right. Because Rich sending DNC emails to Wikileaks would, overall, tend to greatly please the DNC and Demorats of all stripes. What. The. Hell.
“Even if tomorrow, an email was found, it is not a high enough bar of evidence to prove any interactions as emails can be altered and we’ve seen that those interested in pushing conspiracies will stop at nothing to do so,” Bauman said in a statement.
Seven words for the Rich family: let’s just see how this plays out. My guess is that you are Demorats and you don’t wish this to be true in any fashion whatsoever. Understandable. I Grok your wishes. But they may be wrong.
Police Never Asked For Surveillance Video From Bar Seth Rich Was Last Spotted Hours Before His Murder
by Cristina Laila
On July 8, 2016, 27 year-old Democratic staffer Seth Conrad Rich was murdered in Washington DC. The killer or killers took nothing from their victim, leaving behind his wallet, watch and phone.
TGP recently reported that according to Public Incident Report CCN #16113797 dated July 10, 2016 by the Washington D.C. Metropolitan Police Department, former DNC employee and the leaker of emails to WikiLeaks, Seth Rich was alive when the police found him on that date. He died later that morning. The report also notes that Rich was conscious and breathing with gunshot wounds to his back when the police found him. The report also notes that at least three of the police at the scene wore body cameras that night.
FOIA request for the cam footage. Except:
The video from the body cameras has gone missing.
Curious, eh wot?
A manager of the Washington, D.C., bar where Democratic National Committee worker Seth Rich was last spotted hours before he was shot and killed last summer told WND that D.C. police officers never interviewed the bar’s staff or requested any evidence from the bar, including the bar’s surveillance video from that night, as part of an investigation into Rich’s murder.
The revelation backs up a claim made by a private investigator who worked on the case who said D.C. police were told to “stand down” on the investigation.
Why wouldn’t police investigate the last public place Seth Rich was seen before he was murdered? Surveillance footage could give a lot of clues such as was Seth Rich followed out of the bar? Was he in a heated exchange with anyone there? Was he on his phone? Was he wearing the same clothes he was later found in?
Those are all logical questions that any competent homicide detective would be asking. Of note for this post in terms of future revelations:
On Thursday, Dotcom provided a list of surveillance cameras that were near the Rich crime scene, which should have been able to offer at least a rough glance at the perpetrator.
If more is unearthed and the murder of Seth Rich somehow points back to the DNC or the Demorats?
