Robert Gehl reports that the (now) outspoken liberal Donna Brazile has a bizarre theory on the death of Seth Rich.
The employee of the Democratic National Committee – who was one of Brazile’s underlings when she headed the DNC – was mysteriously murdered in the Bloomingdale neighborhood of Washington, D.C. in July 2016. The shooting is still under investigation and has spawned many conspiracies about his death.
You can add Brazile to the list of conspiracy theorists too. From her new book “Hacks:”
I felt some responsibility for Seth Rich’s death. I didn’t bring him into the DNC, but I helped keep him there working on voting rights. With all I knew now about the Russians’ hacking, I could not help but wonder if they had played some part in his unsolved murder. Besides that, racial tensions were high that summer and I worried that he was murdered for being white on the wrong side of town. [My friend] Elaine expressed her doubts about that, and I heard her. The FBI said that they did not see any Russian fingerprints there.
In the book, Brazile repeatedly mentions that she was haunted by Seth Rich’s murder, despite the fact that Democrats have attacked anyone who suggest the murder was anything other than a random robbery gone wrong, despite the fact that he was killed days before Wikileaks began publishing emails from the DNC and Rich’s valuables were not taken off his body.
Brazile insists she has a “spook” within the intelligence community who insisted after the murder that she needed to get protection for herself, which she did.
Her concern was so great, she used here only phone call with Hillary Clinton after the election loss to bring up Seth Rich’s murder. She asked Clinton to use some of her millions to set up a reward to find his murderer.
Hillary’s response: “I really have to go.”
I knew the campaign had over $3 million set aside in a legal fund. Could she help me get this lawsuit started? And don’t forget the murder of Seth Rich, I told her. Did she want to contribute to Seth’s reward fund? We still hadn’t found the person responsible for the tragic murder of this bright young DNC staffer.
You’re right, she said. We’re going to get to that. But she really had to go. She had made the call and checked it off her list, and I accepted after we said our good-byes that I might never heard from her again.
The reward is there, over $500,000, but Hillary Clinton’s campaign hasn’t donated to it.
While they do not believe Seth Rich was killed by a hired assassin, a group of graduate students investigating the murder concluded that Rich’s murder was not a random homicide or a robbery gone bad.
They believe he was killed by a serial murderer, that there is additional footage of the crime and that Rich’s killer “most likely remains free within the community.”
We may never know who killed Seth Rich.
