Court Docs May Confirm Slain DNC Staffer Seth Rich’s Contact w/ Wikileaks

'I have seen and read the emails between Seth Rich and WikiLeaks...'

New documents may reveal that Seth Rich, the Democratic National Committee staffer murdered under suspicious circumstances in 2016, had been in contact with Wikileaks in the lead-up to his death.

According to the Gateway Pundit, the documents confirm prior reporting that a federal investigator who viewed the forensics report on Rich had acknowledged the WikiLeaks correspondence.

The original reporting came from London-based investigative documentary producer Gavin MacFayden, who died of lung cancer in October 2016.

In a piece for Fox News that was later scrubbed, an investigator in the case told MacFayden, “I have seen and read the emails between Seth Rich and WikiLeaks.”

He said the FBI was in possession of the emails but that Washington, DC, police were overseeing the murder investigation.

The matter resurfaced last week as Rich’s family proceeded to wage a lawsuit in the United Kingdom against Fox News for implicating Rich in the leaks.

Rich, who had been a Bernie Sanders supporter, was shot in front of his northwest DC apartment on July 10, 2016. No personal effects of his were taken in the supposed robbery.

Wikileaks first published emails hacked from the DNC server on July 22 of that year.

The DNC leaks revealed, among many other shocking details, that high-level operatives at the committee had colluded with the Hillary Clinton campaign to undermine Sanders, her only viable primary opponent.

But the FBI, led by biased agents including Peter Strzok, deferred its forensic analysis to the left-wing firm CrowdStrike, contracted by the DNC, which concluded that Russians were responsible for the hack.

That, in turn, resulted in the series of events that triggered allegations that the Trump campaign had colluded with Russia, allowing the FBI to open its “Crossfire Hurricane” sting operation, which ultimately warped into Robert Mueller‘s two-year special counsel investigation.

Meanwhile, both the deep-state intelligence community and the leftist media embarked upon a concerted effort to suppress the growing reportage on Rich’s ties to Wikileaks, which fed into longstanding rumors about the Clintons’ tendency to dispense with those who crossed them politically.

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange helped fuel speculation, later telling a Dutch reporter, “I am suggesting that our sources take risks and they—they become concerned to see things occurring like that.”

Assange’s mother made the connection more explicit in a now-deleted tweet from August 2018:

Its the duty of media to inform citizens about corruption

A #DNC#Bernie supporter disgruntled with rigging leaked docs proving corruption

What should Wikileaks should have done?

Hold on to them till after the election to advantage #Hillary?

You are shooting the messenger!
