Murdered Democratic Party Staffer Seth Rich sent DNC emails to WikiLeaks

UPDATE: Fox News has now retracted and deleted the original report which calls into question the information from the federal investigator and Rod Wheeler contained in their article.

DNC staffer killed in Washington, D.C. last July reportedly sent tens of thousands of internal Democratic party emails to Wikileaks just before his murder according to a Fox News (now deleted) report.

The report refutes Democrat politicians’ claims that it was Russia that hacked into DNC computers and released the emails. Instead, an unnamed federal investigator told Fox News that Democrat staffer Seth Rich sent the cache of internal emails to Gavin MacFayden, a London-based WikiLeaks director. WikiLeaks published the highly-damaging emails that detailed DNC leadership’s favoritism of Clinton over Sanders just 12 days after Rich’s death.

A federal investigator who reviewed an FBI forensic report — generated within 96 hours after DNC staffer Seth Rich’s murder — detailing the contents Rich’s computer said he made contact with WikiLeaks through Gavin MacFadyen, a now-deceased American investigative reporter, documentary filmmaker, and director of WikiLeaks who was living in London at the time.

“I have seen and read the emails between Seth Rich and WikiLeaks,” the federal investigator told Fox News, confirming the MacFadyen connection. He said the emails are in possession of the FBI, while the stalled case is in the hands of the Washington Police Department.

Seth Rich died under suspicious circumstances. He was shot in the back twice but not robbed. His cell phone, jewelry, and wallet were on him when he died leading most to suspect foul play.

Just after Rich’s death, WikiLeaks offered a huge reward for information leading to the conviction of Seth’s killer and Republican lobbyist Jack Burkman has offered a separate $130,000 reward. The murder has not yet been solved.

A private investigator and former D.C. homicide detective was hired by Rich’s family, confirmed the information in the Fox News story.

“My investigation up to this point shows there was some degree of email exchange between Seth Rich and WikiLeaks,” Rod Wheeler said. “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.”

Also, Wheeler believes that someone in the government, the Democratic Party, or Hillary Clinton’s camp is blocking attempts to find the truth. Police have refused to release security footage from a market on the corner of the crosswalk where Rich was killed.

  1. Did you mean he died under ‘suspicious’ circumstances? Not ‘conspicuous’.

  2. This is SUCH bullshit and Weasel Wheeler has already retracted his weirdo, nasty conspiracy theory. Really. This and Pizzagate show how far off the reservation you whacks have gone

  3. Why do those on the side of the political elite class care so much about shutting down conspiracy theories concerning the Seth Rich murder? Those at DNC headquarters knew that Hillary was a horrible candidate, but they loved her power and were willing to stand by her to get more for themselves.. Staffers are quiet because they will be the next one to mysteriously die should DNC elites suspect disloyalty. Who at the DNC had A LOT to lose if Hillary or they were exposed as fixing the Democratic Primary ? Curious that Debbie Wasserman Shultz was immediately hired by Hillary after she was exposed as being a primary figure in the rigging of the primary in Hillary’s favor. Where was the outrage by honest Democrats? No criminal charges. Why? Who would be in charge of making that happen? Hmmm . What would happen to the person who dug deeply into THAT ? If there was a thorough investigation, instead of the sham investigation that occurred, WhatsAppReminder are the names of the people who’s careers would be ruined. Maybe someone should make a list. Why don’t people like the above JULIA ( as in ‘life of Julia’) care about at least honestly attempting to find the truth? Perhaps they already know that they would be in the circle of those implicated.To comment that it is “bullsh*t” to do so is ludicrous. Rich Mitchell is very brave keep the door open when so many people who’s voices threaten the Clinton power structure end up just like Seth Rich. Like Rush Limbaugh has said many times, Its The CLINTON CRIME FAMILY. It is actually a syndicated criminal organization operating in plain site. There is example after example of the Clintons breaking the law without the serious consequence that anyone else would suffer for doing the same. Thise who come against them ending up mysteriously dying. That this crime organization is allowed to continually operate is unbelievable. And that is what it is – A global sydicated criminal organization that deals in the buying and selling of American material and intellectual assets of high value for profit. A serious investigation of the Clinton Foundation would bring down the entire DNC and half of Washington DC. The Clintons are the king and queen of the swamp. They are more powerful than James Comey or Loretta Lynch or Donald Trump. They are ruthless and will have you killed . And for that reason the head of the FBI let Hillary off the hook. He most likely will soon die of a ‘heart attack ” or ” suicide” or” car accident at high speed”- some of the Clintons mercenary’s favorite methods. God Bless Rich Mitchell Note: The above statements are all false and based only on fake news

    1. I agree with you whole heartedly Ann. I’ve been writing here and elsewhere informing people about the Clinton death list and have an article on here about it also. As far as Debbie Wasserman Schultz being subpoenaed,lawyer Shawn Lucas did just that on behalf of a class action lawsuit against her rigging the primaries. He was found dead the next day in his apartment face was branded a “heart attack”even though his girlfriend said he was in perfect health.

  4. Somebody is working very very hard to make this story go away. We absolutely must keep digging!

  5. Even Fox News has retracted this story. Why is this paranoid raving even still up on this website?

  6. The man,Mr. Rich, was murdered in a robbery attempt. His family has made repeated requests that the death of their son not be used to falsify some false conspiracy theory. It’s sad and shameful that Sean Hannity said he’d continue trying to spin the man’s unfortunate death to craft a #FakeNews story, and one clearly transparently intended to deflect attention and the media’s eye away from the Russian scandal. The parents of this young man pleaded, crying, for the death of their son to stop being used for petty partisan offense, and yet, here again, the need to scoop-up the mud the bottom-feeder “news” writers here, are trying to spark some smoke, to then shout ‘fire’ over. Please consider showing a shred of more ethics and morals than trump, and let the man’s family grieve and mourn while you try to steal his life to kill his memory.
