I am just beginning to investigate this story and report on it because I feel that Seth Rich had his life taken for sinister purposes. I aim to learn more about the circumstantial evidence of his death, however, that will require some in-depth research.
Please share if you think his death needs further investigation and that there are too many key points of evidence to ignore or dismiss this story.
Recent developments in the Seth Rich case have revealed that Seth Rich was murdered on Sunday, July 10 of 2016. Several sources indicate that high-level officials within the Democratic party were involved. Dismissed as a “conspiracy theory”, as these stories often are, some mainstream media outlets are ignoring what could potentially be key evidence in the outcome of the 2016 election.
According to Fox43, “Rich worked as a voter expansion data director for the DNC since 2014, CNN confirmed with the DNC. He was a 2011 graduate of Creighton University and his resume was filled with various jobs in Democratic politics and political consulting.”
Rich had a bright future ahead of him and as noted by Daily Mail UK, Rich’s father said his 27- year old son “was excited to move to Brooklyn and work for the Hillary Clinton campaign. Multiple reports indicate Rich believed he could “change the DNC “from the inside out. “
This is an echo of familiarity to those writers and broadcasters who have been harassed, threatened, and ridiculed by HRC supporters for not believing that one can change the moral dynamics of an organization, necessarily, within the existing organization.
WikiLeaks, an award-winning government transparency organization, whose motto is “We open governments” have been tweeting about this subject for a while now. Evidence of this can be found on the Wikileaks Twitter page” Several independent social media reporters and journalists are speaking out about the case and it has captured the attention of many. Rich’s death leaves the American people with so many questions and little answers. The mainstream media and officials involved in this case want the American public to go back to sleep and fight over partisan ideologies and embrace the “newly reformed” Democratic party consisting of the same structure just with different faces.
So, while the corporate controlled Democrats and Republicans go around holding anti-Trump rallies and inciting a new “Red Scare”, independent journalists will be searching for answers. So many people are affected by this including Bernie voters, Bernie promoters, DNC lawsuit members and their legal representatives, Jared H. Beck and Elizabeth Beck, the people’s legal team, people who contributed to the Sanders campaign and many others.
The Washington Post, a large well-financed organization, which hosts Clinton’s former campaign manager as a contributor, states that a DNC spokesman for Rich’s family say “People need to stop politicizing our son’s death.” Many who contributed money, time, and effort online and in person feel that it is their right to know the truth.
Many also feel that a further investigation is warranted and maybe the public will find some answers to why this young man died right before he was to begin a career with the Hillary Clinton campaign.
Perhaps the DNC hopes this story will just disappear like so many others, however, people who have been traumatized by this election will keep fighting for answers. Until the public gets answers, writers will continue searching for clues regarding his alleged communications with Kimdotcom and WikiLeaks, regardless of the public shame, ridicule, and media suppression.
