(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) Looking for cover on another potentially nefarious transgression, the Federal Bureau of Investigation has filed a request that a United States court reverse its order to release the contents of Seth Rich’s laptop to the general public, the Epoch Times reported.
If the court refuses, the FBI would like to retain the information in private for 66 years on the grounds that withholding the information would protect Rich’s family.
Rich, a Democratic National Committee staffer, was killed outside of his DC apartment in Washington in mid-2016. Although Washington, DC, police declared it a robbery, none of his property was taken.
The timing of Rich’s death also corresponded with Wikileaks release of hacked DNC emails that painted the Democrat political machine in a negative light, revealing its collusion with media and other partisan operatives to ensure Hillary Clinton received the nomination.
It was in response to the DNC hacking that the Clinton campaign devised a plan to smear her GOP opponent, Donald Trump, by attempting to link him with Russian collusion, even though evidence may have pointed to an inside job.
There has never been an arrest made in response to his killing.
Many have speculated that Rich was likely working with Julian Assange, and may have been responsible for the 2016 “hacking” of the Democratic National Committee servers, being part of the leaking of sensitive documents related to Hillary Clinton‘s presidential campaign.
At the time the Democrats had conspired against Bernie Sanders–who they had deemed as too radical to defeat Donald Trump–to secure Hillary Clinton as their 2016 presidential candidate. Of course, crossing the Clinton’s rarely ends well for people.
The FBI has routinely denied that anything nefarious happened to Rich, which calls into question their plea for his laptop to remain sealed for at least 66 years.
