The plot thickens yet again. Seth Rich was the 27-year-old Democratic National Committee staffer who was shot to death in his D.C. neighborhood a few weeks ago. No suspects have been located, and the media had billed it as just an unfortunate local story. It was a “robbery gone bad.”
It had gone so bad that the alleged robbers didn’t take anything of value off of Mr. Rich. He still had his wallet, his watch, and his phone. So whoever was planning to rob him, shot and killed him, but they didn’t want to go so far as to steal anything from him.
Others had speculated that after the robbers shot him, they thought the police or anyone else would have heard the gunshot, and so they fled.
The questionable circumstances were weird enough, but now it’s gotten a little weirder.
WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange was on a Dutch television program Nieuwsuur where he insinuated that one of his sources was Seth Rich. At the same time, he said, “We don’t comment on who our sources are.” Here’s what he said:
“Whistleblowers go to significant efforts to get us material and often very significant risks. As a 27 year-old, works for the DNC, was shot in the back, murdered just a few weeks ago for unknown reasons as he was walking down the street in Washington.”
Take a look:
That seems to be pretty darn close to saying that Mr. Rich was one of his sources, without actually coming out and saying it. And if he was a source, he was most likely the one who leaked the DNC emails to WikiLeaks. And now it appears he was murdered over it.
This revelation follows news that a Bernie Sanders supporter who had filed a fraud lawsuit against the DNC and Debbie Wasserman Schultz was found dead in his bathroom by his girlfriend. According to his girlfriend, up until that point, he was in good health.
