Seth Rich Leaked DNC Emails to WikiLeaks, Journalist Confirms
The unsolved murder of Democratic National Committee (DNC) staffer Seth Rich bounced back in news and Rich’s name trended on the social media site Twitter/X as an independent journalist reported on confirmation of a long-suspected link between Rich’s murder and the Democratic Party.
Seth Rich, the 27-year-old DNC staffer, was shot dead in Washington D.C. on the night of July 10, 2016. His killing came at a time when Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign was at its peak and had just secured the nomination over Bernie Sanders for the Democratic presidential candidate for 2016. The murder raised much speculation, particularly when WikiLeaks published internal emails from within the DNC suggesting that the Democrat primary was rigged in favor of Hillary Clinton.
In the wake of the WikiLeaks revelation, Seth Rich’s killing was suspected to be the work of pro-Hillary Democrats or the Clintons themselves for blowing the whistle. Critics of the Clinton campaign suspected that Rich was executed for leaking the truth. The Democrats and mainstream media called it a conspiracy theory and instead blamed Russia for spreading, what they called, disinformation to help Trump in the election.
Now independent journalist Lindsay Jones, popularly known as Texas Lindsay, has provided an update on the case to confirm the speculation that Rich indeed leaked the DNC emails to WikiLeaks. Lindsay shared a clip of her interview with fellow independent journalist Emerald Robinson, who previously worked at conservative news channels Newsmax and One America News (ONN). Lindsay said she was in contact with someone who directly works with Julian Assange’s team. She said:
“They confided in me that it was Seth Rich that leaked the DNC information which completely contradicts the Mueller Report which said it was a Russian hacker leak.”
Like Lindsay said in her interview, the murder of Seth Rich was never conclusively solved. A lot of suspicion about foul play involved in the killing revolves around the role of the FBI in the investigation of the crime. As capitulated in an NTD story last December, FBI officials initially denied having any records on Rich while a Texan filed for the said records under a Freedom of Information (FOI) request.
In 2020, however, the FBI admitted to having files from Rich’s computer and released some of the files to the Texas resident who had filed the FOI request. The story wrote:
Some of those files were then released to Huddleston and made public, including documents that appear to suggest that someone could have paid for his death.
But things became more suspicious when the FBI acknowledged to having images from a second computer belonging to Seth Rich and a federal judge ordered the agency to release them to the person requesting the Rich files. Without acknowledging the possession of the second laptop itself, the bureau has reportedly battled the release of those images, fueling the suspicions of political motives behind the agency’s handling of the investigation.
Last month, Judge Amos L. Mazzant ordered the FBI to turn over Rich’s laptop that is in the bureau’s possession. Reporting the development, Newsweek repeated the Mueller Report’s claim that Rich was “proven to not be the source of any email leaks.”
