As is the case when any young person passes on too soon, Seth Rich’s death is, above all else, a terrible tragedy. While the mystery as to who murdered Mr. Rich is still open – with no leads – new evidence has become available that clarifies the exact role the slain staffer played in the DNC Wikileaks leak. There is one minor snag: Congress won’t allow the evidence to be released.
Internet entrepreneur Kim Dotcom has come forward with a request to reveal evidence linking Mr. Rich with the Clinton leak in front of the U.S. Congress. Dotcom, the Megaupload founder and friend of Julian Assange, has already consulted with his legal team and is reportedly ready to testify under oath.
“If Congress includes #SethRich case into their Russia probe I’ll give written testimony with evidence that Seth Rich was @Wikileaks source,” Dotcom tweeted on Friday.
Despite what the media and politicians like to repeat, the Rich/Wikileakes connection has nothing to do with a far-right conspiracy to accuse Hillary Clinton of Murder.
Quite simply, if Mr. Rich were the leaker, the entire Russia narrative blows up in the face of all those who blindly howled about it since November. The mainstream media have devoted thousands of hours to the Russiagate conspiracy theory, and it now appears unwilling to cover this breaking story for a single moment.
This should not be a partisan issue. Mr. Rich was a ferocious supporter of Bernie Sanders, in fact. For all those demanding more investigation into President Trump, can we get one afternoon to listen to a credible billionaire who is willing to testify under oath, at risk of perjury? Regardless of party, if you would like to get to the bottom of the Rich/Wikileaks connection, share this article and contact your congressman.
