Seth Rich, a now deceased member of the DNC staff during the 2016 election, was believed to be involved in the leaking of John Podesta’s campaign emails to Wikileaks; an event that revealed an enormous closet full of skeletons for then-candidate Hillary Clinton, sinking her hopes of becoming the first female President of the United States. Before this could be confirmed, however, Seth Rich was gunned down in the streets of Washington D.C.
Police purported that Rich was killed in a “botched robbery” in which a “random” assailant murdered the DNC staffer, but did not take his wallet, phone, or an expensive watch.
Of course, this left many with the idea that Rich was politically assassinated for his role in the disclosures that Wikileaks was making.
That theory was posited about quite a bit in the early days after his death, only to be shouted down by the mainstream media, Rich’s parents, and a great many politicians, who shamed amateur investigators to no end when it came to Seth’s story. Even Sean Hannity was forced to abandon his own journalistic efforts in the case by unseen forces.
Now, interim DNC Chief Donna Brazile, who was exposed by Wikileaks for assisting Hillary Clinton with early access to CNN debate questions, has raised Seth’s specter once again by dedicating her latest book to him.
“A new book by Donna Brazile, the former interim chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee (DNC), has been making headlines for its controversial claims about the 2016 presidential election and the Hillary Clinton campaign. But the provocative points start even before the first chapter, as Brazile reportedly dedicated the book in part to Seth Rich, the DNC staffer whose murder launched a conspiracy theory.
“Axios reported on Sunday that the book’s dedication reads, ‘In loving memory of my father, Lionel Brazile Sr.; my beloved sister, Sheila Brazioutlanle; my fearless uncles Nat, Floyd, and Douglas; Harlem’s finest, my aunt Lucille; my friend and mentor, David Kaufmann; my DNC colleague and patriot, Seth Rich; and my beloved Pomeranian, Chip Joshua Marvin Brazile (Booty Wipes). I miss y’all.’
“Brazile talked about Rich on ABC News’s This Week with George Stephanopouloson Sunday. She told the host about her critics: ‘They don’t know what it was like to be over the DNC during this hacking. They don’t know what it’s like to bury a child. I did: Seth Rich.’”
If Rich truly was the email leaker, then his unbelievable murder mystery deserves solving. His role as a patriot in a den of thieves should be lauded, but it will take real justice to confirm that circumstance.
From her book “Hacks“:
I felt some responsibility for Seth Rich’s death. I didn’t bring him into the DNC, but I helped keep him there working on voting rights. With all I knew now about the Russians’ hacking, I could not help but wonder if they had played some part in his unsolved murder. Besides that, racial tensions were high that summer and I worried that he was murdered for being white on the wrong side of town. [My friend] Elaine expressed her doubts about that, and I heard her. The FBI said that they did not see any Russian fingerprints there.
Brazile repeatedly returns to the subject of being haunted by Rich’s murder, even though other Democrats have pounced on anyone who suggested that the murder was anything other than a robbery gone wrong. The DNC data staffer was killed days before Wikileaks began publishing its emails, and his valuables were not taken.
Brazile was so concerned with Rich’s death that she used her brief, only phone call from Hillary Clinton after the election loss to bring him up. She asked Clinton to use some of the millions of dollars the campaign had in order to set up a reward fund to find his murderer. But Hillary said she “really had to go.”
I knew the campaign had over $3 million set aside in a legal fund. Could she help me get this lawsuit started? And don’t forget the murder of Seth Rich, I told her. Did she want to contribute to Seth’s reward fund? We still hadn’t found the person responsible for the tragic murder of this bright young DNC staffer.
You’re right, she said. We’re going to get to that. But she really had to go. She had made the call and checked it off her list, and I accepted after we said our good-byes that I might never hear from her again.
Brazile calling more attention to the Seth Rich saga, particularly at a time in which Hillary Clinton and others are under mass scrutiny for their abhorrent ties to Russian political meddling through the Obama-era Uranium One deal, gives us a glimpse into what the interim DNC head believes the future of the democratic party will look like. Brazile is coming out swinging solidly in the direction of Hillary Clinton, a dangerous opponent if there ever was one, and by calling on Seth Rich, The Patron Saint of Democratic Assassinations, perhaps the former Clinton confidante is looking for a bit of insulation against her former boss.
