Julian Assange stated in a tweet on May 9th that now that the obstructionist James Comey is no longer in power at the FBI he was expecting a “Niagara” of leaks to be forthcoming. The information regarding Seth Rich may be the first in that flood.
Rich was shot in the back and murdered on July 10th of last year under strange circumstances as he walked home from a bar near his home at approximately 4:18 am. Despite his wallet and watch not being taken and there being no evidence to indicate it was an attempted robbery, it has been classified as such by the DC police. That theory has been dismissed by many who believe the fact that Rich worked for Hillary Clinton and the Democrats at a time when WikiLeaks was publishing their internal documents is more relevant.
Now information indicating there may be a direct link to the Clinton campaign has come in the form of a statement by Rod Wheeler, a retired DC homicide detective and Fox News contributor who has been investigating the case on behalf of Rich’s family. He stated, “My investigation up to this point shows there was some degree of email exchange between Seth Rich and WikiLeaks.”
According to Malia Zimmerman, a Fox News reporter, an FBI forensic report of Rich’s computer was generated within 96 hours of his Rich’s murder, showing that he had, in fact, been in contact with WikiLeaks through Julian Assange’s mentor, Gavin MacFadyen, the director of WikiLeaks, who was living in London at the time and has since passed away due to lung cancer.
A federal investigator corroborated what Wheeler told Fox News, speaking on the condition of anonymity, saying, “I have seen and read the emails between Seth Rich and WikiLeaks.” He stated that the emails are in the possession of the FBI, as the stalled case remains open but at a supposed dead end.
Once again, a case that any lay person can tell has DNC and Clintonfingerprints all over it sits idle and unprosecuted, the dots unconnected, and not followed despite smoking gun evidence of a crime. The FBI has the computer evidence in their possession, on a shelf somewhere, but James Comey and others have halted the investigation. Obstruction and protection of Democrat criminals was Comey’s job at the FBI, not prosecuting them.
Wheeler said, “My investigation up to this point shows there was some degree of email exchange between Seth Rich and WikiLeaks. 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 said there are a total of 44,053 emails and 17,761 attachments, correspondence between Democratic National Committee leaders, which were transferred from Rich to MacFadyen before May 21st, 2016. They spanned a period covering January of 2015 thru May of 2016.
While refusing to identify Rich as their source, Julian Assange strongly hinted that was the case at a time when the publisher posted a US $20k reward for information leading to the conviction of his killer.
Oddly, Brad Bauman, a Rich Family spokesman, said Tuesday that Wheeler was not authorized to speak for the family and called assertions Seth Rich sent emails to WikiLeaks “unsubstantiated.” Rich’s father also made similar claims.
Bauman said, “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. We are a family who is committed to facts, not fake evidence that surfaces every few months to fill the void and distract law enforcement and the general public from finding Seth’s murderers.” That’s one email, Bauman, how about 44K and 17K attachments? Were they all altered as well?
Bauman sounds like someone who may be a Clinton loyalist, inserted close to the family to run interference and spread disinformation. His comments are similar to those made by John Podesta during the campaign, attempting to dispute the veracity of the emails as they first became known. Bauman is paid by an unnamed third party. The Rich family has a signed contract with Wheeler’s Capitol Investigations.
The FBI’s national office declined to comment, but sources said the bureau did provide cyber expertise to examine Rich’s computer.
If President Trump hadn’t fired James Comey this information might not be coming out. A May 9th tweet from Julian Assange stated that the “FBI will now start leaking, leaking like Niagara.” Maybe this is the first of the upcoming flood of information that is free to come out with the dam of James Comey now breached.
