New Evidence in DNC Staffer Seth Rich’s Death Suggests Major Murder Cover-Up

Questions and rumors have been swirling around the death of a young DNC staffer, Seth Rich, who was shot and killed on the streets of D.C in July of last year. There are new developments in the  27-year-old’s death, found by his family’s private investigator, which claim that Rich was in contact with Wikileaks. In fact, it has been reported that he sent over 40,000 emails to them, and is believed that he was killed for being an information leaker.

According to the federal investigator with whom Fox News spoke, Rich sent 44,053 DNC emails to WikiLeaks, including 17,761 attachments, to the late Gavin MacFayden, a close colleague of Assange’s and director of WikiLeaks at the time. The files were given to MacFayden prior to May 21, 2016.

Former D.C. homocide detective, Rod Wheeler, found that the local police’s story about Rich’s death being a botched robbery does not seem to be the case at all. It is a huge cover up, and although we did not know the details, we had a hunch about this all along. Especially since his death just happened to coincide with WikiLeaks’ release of DNC emails.

Breitbart reports:

Wheeler explained to Marraco the obstacles he has faced in dealing with both the local police and the FBI during his investigation and argued that Rich’s computer may offer some more details.

“[Neither] the police department nor the FBI have been forthcoming,” Wheeler said. “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 at the FBI. I have been told both.”

Wheeler went on to claim that he had a source within the police department who said the computer could link Rich to WikiLeaks. But he noted that a source within the police department told him of a “highly unusual” instruction for police to “stand down” on that murder investigation.

“Actually, 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.’ Now, that’s highly unusual for a murder investigation, especially from a police department. Again, 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’s going to come out tomorrow.”

So what now? Without the right people digging, this can still be silenced and pushed under the rug. We want the truth!
