Julian Assange Suggests Murdered DNC Staffer Seth Rich, Was Source for WikiLeaks

As Hillary Clinton’s campaign progresses, so does the trail of bodies left in her wake. And now, according to WikiLeaks, we are finding out that a murder last month of DNC staffer, Seth Rich is also tied to Hillary Clinton.
The murder of Seth Rich happened at 4 a.m. as he walked home. Dubiously enough, his death was written off as a robbery — in spite of the fact that the alleged robbers took nothing from him.
After his murder, Rich’s father Joel told reporters, “If it was a robbery — it failed because he still has his watch, he still has his money — he still has his credit cards, still had his phone so it was a wasted effort except we lost a life.”
When WikiLeaks published thousands of DNC emails shortly before the Democratic Convention, which ultimately forced the resignation of four top officials, the Clinton campaign immediately blamed the Russians and proceeded to smear WikiLeaks as a Kremlin operation.
However, on Tuesday, WikiLeaks’ Julian Assange dropped a bombshell and suggested Rich was the WikiLeaks source.
Coincidentally, as reported by the Underground Reporter, Seth Rich was also slated to testify in a Clinton investigation. According to the Washington Post, prior to his death Rich was looking into several instances of DNC electoral fraud and voter suppression, and was to give testimony in the case regarding Clinton’s email server — the very scandal kicked off by the Wikileaks data dump.
After announcing that WikiLeaks would pay $20,000 for information leading to the conviction of Rich’s murderer, Assange went on an interview with Nieuwsurr. During the interview, Assange implied that Rich was his source.
Assange: Whistleblowers go to significant efforts to get us material and often significant risks. There was a 27-year old that works for the DNC who was shot in the back… murdered.. for unknown reasons as he was walking down the street in Washington.
Host: That was just a robbery wasn’t it?
Assange: No. There’s no finding.
Host: What are you suggesting?
Assange: I am suggesting that our sources take risks and they become concerned to see things occurring like that.
Host: But was he one of your sources, then?
Assange: We don’t comment on who our sources are.
Host: But why make the suggestion?
Assange: Because we have to understand how high the stakes are in the United States and that our sources face serious risks… that’s why they come to us so we can protect their anonymity.
Host: But it’s quite something to suggest a murder… that’s basically what you’re doing.
Rich’s death is one of five deaths in the last six weeks of individuals who’ve been destructive to the Clinton campaign. Just this month, for instance, two prominent anti-Clinton activists were found dead within two days.
Renowned anti-Clinton researcher and writer for American Free Press (AFP), Victor Thorn, whose birth name was Scott Robert Makufka, was found dead from a gunshot wound near his home on August 1.
The very next day, Shawn Lucas, who was recently featured in a viral video serving the Democratic National Committee and its now-ousted head, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, with a class-action lawsuit alleging a massive voter fraud scheme for rigging the Democratic primary for Hillary Clinton — was found lifeless by his girlfriend on the bathroom floor.
While Clinton’s control over the mainstream press keeps these ominous details from the public, the suspicious deaths are undeniable. What they show us is that is indeed dangerous to portray Clinton in a negative light.
