Seth Rich was hired by the Democrat Party as the official “voter expansion data director.”
In 2016, while walking home late at night in the gun-free D.C. neighborhood where Rich lived, he was shot in the back several times but wasn’t robbed. He was just left to die on the sidewalk, only a short distance from his home.
Although his murder is still unsolved, one thing is clear, Rich was clearly privy to information that could potentially harm the Democrat Party and more specifically Crooked Hillary Clinton’s chances of winning the election in November.
Rich’s father told the local TV station in his hometown of Omaha that the killers took nothing from his son’s body.
“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,” Joel Rich told KMTV.
During an interview with Dutch television program Nieuwsuur, Wikileaks founder Julian Assange refused to rule out that Seth Rich was the source of the DNC leaks released by Wikileaks. Here’s an excerpt from the interview with Assange:
Julian Assange: Whistleblowers go to significant efforts to get us material and often very significant risks. As a 27-year-old, works for the DNC, was shot in the back, murdered just a few weeks ago for unknown reasons as he was walking down the street in Washington.
Reporter: That was just a robbery, I believe. Wasn’t it?
Julian Assange: No. There’s no finding. So… I’m suggesting that our sources take risks.
Now, The Gateway Pundit is reporting that a New York magistrate judge is requesting testimony from Wikileaks founder Julian Assange in the case involving slain DNC voter data director Seth Rich.
U.S. Magistrate Judge Sarah Netburn requested international assistance in order to get the testimony.
The parents of Seth Rich are suing FOX News and Judge Netburn wants Assange to testify on Seth’s role in the leaked DNC documents.
Julian Assange has repeatedly said the documents did not come from Russia. And Robert Mueller interviewed hundreds of witnesses in his anti-Trump witch hunt but never got around to questioning Julian Assange who was the source of leaked DNC documents.
On November 9, 2016, Ellen Ratner admitted publicly that she met with Julian Assange for three hours the Saturday before the 2016 election. According to Ratner, Julian Assange told her the leaks were not from the Russians, they were from an internal source from the Hillary Campaign.
The Epoch Times – Joel and Mary Rich, Seth Rich’s parents, sued Fox News in March 2018 nearly a year after the news network published and retracted an article titled “Seth Rich, slain DNC staffer, had contact with WikiLeaks, say multiple sources.” The Riches claimed the network inflicted intentional emotional distress on them by slandering their son. The case was dismissed in August 2018, but the Second Circuit Court of Appeals overturned the dismissal more than a year later.
The case has since entered the discovery phase and the judge determined that Assange’s testimony is crucial for determining the central dispute between the parties—whether the article was a “sham” as the Riches claim, or “substantially true” as maintained by Fox News.
“Mr. Assange, as founder of WikiLeaks, is exceptionally suited to provide testimony that will be highly relevant to these issues. Therefore, Fox News, by and through this letter of request issued by the District Court, is formally requesting the testimony of Mr. Assange for use at trial,” the request to the UK court states.
