On July 8, 2016, 27 year-old Democratic staffer Seth Conrad Rich was murdered in Washington DC. The killer or killers took nothing from their victim, leaving behind his wallet, watch and phone. Rich was en route to the FBI the morning of his murder, to discuss matters unknown.
Julian Assange, founder of Wikilieaks, has now said that Seth Rich was the source for the Wikileaks-exposed DNC emails.
On Tuesday Wikileaks offered a $20,000 reward for information on the murder of DNC staffer Seth rich.
Terrible for this man’s family. A couple thoughts:
This does require some speculation. Assange was only intimating that he was the source.
Assange does come off as a real scumbag. The reward money doesn’t necessarily mean he was the source, as breaking the news of who ordered the killing would be another huge story in itself.
@FlatsFarmer has a point in that this poor guy’s family will not know who to trust with the investigation. If this IS some type of Washington or DNC corruption in play they will have to tread lightly with local officials.
Britain’s top human rights lawyer who
represented Julian Assange dies in apparent suicide
ONE of Britain’s top human rights lawyers who represented Julian Assange and
war criminals has died in an apparent suicide. Married dad of two John Jones QC, 48, who worked alongside Hollywood actor George Clooney’s wife Amal, passed away on Monday.
He acted for Wikileaks founder Assange, 44, holed-up for four years in the Ecuador Embassy in London, when the Swedish government initially tried to extradite him for questioning on rape charges.
Mr Jones and Amal, colleagues at renowned civil rights legal firm Doughty Street in central London, were currently trying to save the lives of Colonel Gaddafi’s son Saif and Libyan spy chief Abdullah al-Senussi. They had been ordered before a firing squad in Tripoli – but the lawyers were trying to divert their case to the war crimes tribunal in The Hague, Holland, which does not have the death penalty.
A spokesman for British Transport Police said it was called to West Hampstead rail station in north London at 7.07am on Monday after a man was struck by a train. A spokesman added: “He was pronounced dead at the scene. The man’s death is not being treated as suspicious. A file will be prepared for the coroner.”
He won’t. There’s no way, nobody would trust wikileaks anymore if they revealed the source. Yes, it would be easy to prove he was, but he’s not going to sacrifice his empire for it. He hinted pretty hard he was a source. A source of what I don’t know.
The road to the white house is paved in corpses it seems. This wasn’t a senseless street crime. Something here stinks badly.
Do you mean to tell me that you don’t take as gospel a wild conspiracy theory supported by literally no evidence other than innuendo from a shady, mendacious, feverishly anti-American creep who’s spent the last half decade avoiding sexual assault charges¤ by sitting in a dark room in his underwear, slowly becoming a far-left / alt-right Internet troll / Russia Today blogger?
¤ Aside: a legal consultant for a big news outlet once told me that Assange creeped hard on (as in, basically propositioned) one of his associates’ 13 year old daughter.
But maybe Assange should reveal the source in this case? Whose trust do they betray if they reveal a source that is deceased?
The goal of wikileaks is increasing transparency of what our governments are doing, to reduce corruption. Their whole mission compels them to reveal that governments are covertly murdering whistleblowers, if in fact that is what happened. Can’t do that without revealing the source
I think Assange will do a full reveal if anyone takes him up on the $20K reward and points out the killer
