The case of Seth Rich, a staffer with the Democratic National Committee who was murdered under mysterious circumstances last year, has reemerged as a private investigator has made public new revelations that point to a long time theory behind his death.
Seth Rich was murdered on July 10, 2016 after being shot about a block from his home at 4:20am. Police investigators determined it was a botched robbery attempt, although nothing was stolen, and Rich died from two shots in the back. The shots in the back is an important detail, as if it was a robbery you would think the robber would have said something to the effect of “give me all your money,” which would have triggered Seth Rich to at least be facing his attacker when the shots were fired.
There have been long time theories online that Seth Rich was the person behind the DNC Leaks last summer, which were released by Wikileaks and showed the DNC colluding to suppress Bernie Sanders while protecting their favored candidate Hillary Clinton. The leaks were an massive embarrassment to the Democratic Party and ultimately caused their Chairwomen, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, to step down. The event also triggered many fans of Bernie Sanders to become disillusioned and ultimately abandon Hillary Clinton during the election.
This theory was given further credence when Julian Assange of Wikileaks offered a $20,000 reward for information regarding Seth Rich’s murder. What clearer indication could you have that Seth Rich had some relationship with Wikileaks, as why would Assange offer such a reward for a random murder?
Assange also alluded to Seth Rich being the source of the DNC Leaks during an interview on Fox News.
During another interview with Sean Hannity, Assange outright stated that the Russians had nothing to do with the DNC Leaks and again alluded to an inside source.
Wikileaks founder Julian Assange denied Thursday that hacked emails from the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta were stolen and passed to his organization by Russian state actors.
“Our source is not the Russian government,” Assange told “The Sean Hannity Show.”
“So in other words, let me be clear,” Hannity asked, “Russia did not give you the Podesta documents or anything from the DNC?”
“That’s correct,” Assange responded.
Now, a private investigator who has been examining the Seth Rich murder case claims there is definitive evidence that Rich had contact with Wikileaks, and that evidence can be found on his laptop, backed up by a federal investigator.
An FBI forensic report of Rich’s computer — generated within 96 hours after Rich’s murder — showed 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, the federal source told Fox News.
“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.
The revelation is consistent with the findings of Wheeler, whose private investigation firm was hired by a third party on behalf of Rich’s family to probe the case.
“My investigation up to this point shows there was some degree of email exchange between Seth Rich and WikiLeaks,” 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.”
The federal investigator, who requested anonymity, said 44,053 emails and 17,761 attachments between Democratic National Committee leaders, spanning from January 2015 through late May 2016, were transferred from Rich to MacFadyen before May 21.
On July 22, just 12 days after Rich was killed, WikiLeaks published internal DNC emails that appeared to show top party officials conspired to stop Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont from becoming the party’s presidential nominee. That controversy resulted in Debbie Wasserman Schultz resigning as DNC chairperson.
WikiLeaks leader Julian Assange has stopped short of identifying Rich as the source of the emails, but has taken a keen interest in the case, and has not denied working with Rich.
“WikiLeaks has decided to issue a US$20k reward for information leading to conviction for the murder of DNC staffer Seth Rich,” the organization announced.
Assange has not returned a series of recent emails from Fox News about Rich. MacFadyen, who was considered a mentor by Assange, died of lung cancer on Oct. 22 at age 76.
The following is the FOX video report on Seth Rich’s laptop and their confirmation that Rich was communicating with Wikileaks. The private investigator looking into Seth Rich’s murder also stated, according to FOX, that the D.C. police have been ordered to “back down” on this investigation and to look no further into the details.
These bombshell revelations have reignited social media with the Twitter hashtag #SethRich, and among other online circles who never gave up on investigating his murder.
Another fact which substantiates the claims that Seth Rich was the DNC leaker is the fact that the FBI requested access to the DNC’s servers after the hack, but the DNC denied them access. This indicates that the leak was not the work of “Russian hackers” at all, but rather one of their own people, a theory that it seems the DNC was eager to bury.

Unsurprisingly, the typical anti-Trump media outlets such as the New York Times and Washington Post have refused to report on this story by FOX News, yet they are more than willing to cite “anonymous sources” or “officials” on a near daily basis to try an destroy America’s elected president, Donald Trump.
