Did Hillary Clinton Have Seth Rich Murdered?

Share

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange seemed to imply in an interview that a murdered Democratic National Committee staffer was the source of a trove of damaging emails the rogue website posted just days before the party's convention.

The offer from the clearinghouse for hacked and leaked documents was made Tuesday on Twitter, but it came after Roger Stone, a onetime adviser to Republican nominee Donald Trump, alleged on Twitter that Hillary Clinton was responsible for Seth Rich's death.

According to local media reports, Rich was shot and killed on July 10 as he was walking home in the early morning hours.

Word on the Internet was the young staffer with the Democratic National Committee was killed because he handed WikiLeaks the 20,000 e-mailes that embarrassed the DNC and forced the ouster of its chairwoman. The group had recently published thousands of leaked DNC emails which showed that party officials had undermined presidential candidate Bernie Sanders' campaign.

Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz was ousted from her role as chair of the DNC in the wake of the embarrassing email leak. "Our sources take risks".

"Because we have to understand how high the stakes are in the United States", Assange said.

Reporter: That was just a robbery, I believe. Wikileaks and Assange have in recent days repeatedly attacked Clinton and the DNC. But then he said, "I hope the additional money helps find out who did this". Assange also ruled out a robbery scenario. "We think it is a concerning situation", Assange continued.

A police spokesman in Washington said there was "no information at this time" to suggest a link between his death and any other investigation.

When Assange was asked directly if Rich was one of his sources, the Wikieaks founder dodged the question.

"That said, some are attempting to politicize this disgusting tragedy, and in their attempts to do so, are actually causing more harm than good and impeding on the ability for law enforcement to properly do their job", the statement continued.

The interviewer asked Assange if Rich was a contributor, but Assange refused to confirm or deny it: "We don't comment on who our sources are".

Rich was shot twice in the back as he walked to his townhouse about 4:20 a.m.

Rich's father, Joel Rich, referred to the suggestion of his son's involvement as "bizarre", adding Tuesday the WikiLeaks reward legitimized the online speculation.
