With the emergence of recent reports indicating the Democratic National Committee (DNC) staffer, Seth Rich, was a source for WikiLeaks prior to his murder, it seems we are now faced more questions than answers in regards to the case.
The initial claim from law enforcement following Rich’s death was that it was likely the DNC staffer was shot during a robbery gone wrong. However, what doesn’t make sense about that claim is the fact that Rich was found to still be in possession of all of his personal items, including wallet, watch, and mobile phone.
“There had been a struggle. His hands were bruised, his knees are bruised, his face is bruised, and yet he had two shots to his back, and yet they never took anything,” said Rich’s girlfriend to NBC News. “They didn’t finish robbing him, they just took his life.”
So, was this really a robbery gone wrong?
Also, many groups, organizations, and individuals have offered a reward for information related to Rich’s murder, but not the DNC.
But what did the DNC do? They memorialized his death with a bike rack and plaque.
What’s up with that?
While the murder of Seth Rich has certainly been a hot topic among conservative, libertarian, and alternative news outlets, that has not been the case with the left-wing and mainstream media.
Instead, the limited coverage it has received from those outlets seems to detract from the investigation and/or label it as nothing more than a conspiracy theory.
- Washington Post – “Trump allies, WikiLeaks and Russia are pushing a nonsensical conspiracy theory about the DNC hacks”
- The Huffington Post – “Donald Trump Has A History Of Linking His Political Opponents To People’s Deaths…He once implied that President Barack Obama was connected to the death of the Hawaii official who had verified his birth certificate.”
- The Huffington Post – “Conspiracy Theorists Won’t Stop Accusing The Clintons Of Murder.”
The majority of left-wing sites have also completely ignored the recent reports that Rich was the source of “thousands of internal emails” leaked to WikiLeaks before his death, despite the fact that they worked consistently to refute these claims beforehand.
When will they stop detracting and/or straight up ignoring the case?
Mainstream media refuses to cover it, and the DNC refuses to step up to make a real effort to investigate it.
Sounds fishy to me.
