Seth Rich Refuses to Stay Buried
American Thinker.com ^ | May 11, 2020 | Jack Cashill

“I am reliably informed that the NSA or its partners intercepted at least some of the communications between Mr. Rich and Wikileaks,” wrote attorney Ty Clevenger in a startling letter last week to Richard Grennell, Interim Director of National Intelligence.

Clevenger represents Ed Butowsky, a high-profile author and financial adviser who dared to ask questions about the late Seth Rich and was sued for his troubles.

The known facts of Rich’s still unsolved murder were largely established within hours by the local media. “A 27-year-old man who worked for the Democratic National Committee was shot and killed as he walked home early Sunday in the Bloomingdale neighborhood of Northwest Washington, D.C.,” NBC Washington reported.

The shooting occurred at 4:19 a.m. on Sunday, July 10, 2016. “There had been a struggle,” said Seth’s mother, Mary Rich. “His hands were bruised, his knees are bruised, his face is bruised, and yet he had two shots to his back, and yet they never took anything.” She added, “They took his life for literally no reason.”

In the real world, most killers have a reason. Those who fire two shots and take nothing from the victim always do. In the major newsrooms, journalists have been perversely keen on not knowing what this reason was. In the years since the shooting, they have offered little useful information beyond the account above.

Butowsky was much more curious. The woman who stirred his curiosity was Ellen Ratner, a veteran TV news analyst. On the day after the 2016 presidential election, Ratner participated in a videotaped panel discussion at Embry-Riddle University.

“I spent three hours with Julian Assange on Saturday at the Ecuadorian Embassy in London,” said Ratner with a curious lack of emphasis.

I hope, but have no faith, that this murder will be solved and several high-level DNC members will be convicted of the crime.

If this were a crime novel Hercule Poirot would have had Captain Hastings drive him home, Sherlock Holmes would be shooting up while Dr. Watson worried about him, Nero Wolfe would be eating a late diner alone while Archie danced the night away, Miss Marple would be baking a cake and Kinsie Milhouse would be dreaming of a date with Adam Dalglish who was in bed having nightmares.

There are no other credible suspects. The facts are there. They had the motive, the means and the oportunity. John Podesta and Hillary Clinton are guilty of murder. I realize calling people murderers in print is libel. All I can say is take me to court murderers. Prove me wrong.

Turn now to Fauci. Was it his advice that shut it all down? Europe stayed open. How come? Blame Trump for the real American depression ahead, or Fauci. I vote for Fauci.

It would be sweet if some of the truth about Seth Rich were to come out this week.

The country has seen that the FBI railroaded LTG Flynn with false charges. Bankrupted him. Tried to destroy him.

Now let the country see that these same people have been willing to go even farther. They’ve killed to achieve their criminal goals.

Wouldn’t it be great that the information that Grennel had in that satchel he dropped off at the DOJ contained info on Seth Rich... That would be a good opening salvo to bring accountability back to the perpetrators. It was a MS-13 hit job. Sponsored by an unknown DNC spokesperson that currently works at FOX.

Keeping fauci close is better than having him out there as the scumedias darling criticizing trump and his teams every move.I believe trump knows who he has, he has check mated the fake media befriending fauci and has given, like he has to most of his untrusting acquaintances enough rope to eventually yoke themselves in the end.

Europe stayed open? The only country that stayed open was Sweden.

It was Deep State “wet work”, and the perp(s) will never be found.

5h I've said before that I don't think Rich was murdered FOR what he did, but rather to prevent him from picking up a phone, calling Fox News and destroying the DNC's elaborate collusion hoax, say if things got too out of control and he just wanted to end all the confusion. Just my opinion.

Keep in mind that Assange and Wikileaks saved this country from Hillary Clinton and what would now be a vote by mail system of government. Seth Rich may have well played a part in that and might just be due a hero's salute. There's a great pic of Seth on the internet, leaning back in an easy chair, dressed from head to toe in the Stars and Stripes - even his cuzzi was red white and blue.

The question that remains is, following the most important "hack" in history, how could the FBI decide not to look at the DNC server to determine who did it? Obviously, Comey didn't want to know, because once the tech guys went in, the Russia Collusion Hoax would be toast. Likewise, he couldn't afford to investigate Rich's murder for what they might learn. But you have to ask, why didn't he have the FBI look at the server, and why didn't they look into the murder of a guy who worked for the organization that got hacked, costing them hundreds of billions of dollars in discretionary spending? Comey needs to be asked this question as well: Since when does the FBI allow an outside "consultant" to investigate a major crime? A consultant that had a vested interest in the answer. When, Mr. Comey? When?

We should be protecting Julian Assange with everything we've got. Are you listening, President Trump? Epstein died on your watch. Granted, NY controlled the situation, but the Feds could have taken that back. But don't let Assange die. His testimony is key to putting the final nail in the Russia Hoax coffin.

I’m thinking too that the hitter was a MS-13 or other gang member. We know from Baltimore’s mayor or from Tim Kaine’s son’s involvement in Antifa that there are DNC elements who have ties to criminal groups. It won’t be a FBI/CIA hit, not that I trust them, but just think it would leak after a while. Hiring a gang to do it provides an alibi of sorts. If he gets caught, well, he’s a criminal doing criminal things so case closed and they stop digging.

I’m for a full pardon of Assange. He just published documents that were leaked to him. If that’s the standard, then every news organization ever would be in jail.

I was leery of him during the Iraq war, but think recent events have changed a lot of minds on the right about Wikileaks.

“I am reliably informed that the NSA or its partners intercepted at least some of the communications between Mr. Rich and Wikileaks,”

Say what? When did I miss this? When did the news break that Seth had been talking to wikileaks?

There goes the story about his killing being a botched robbery/kidnapping/sexual assault - none of the three of those things happened - there was a motive and it was murder. It's like what Tony and Silvio did to the young woman, what was her name... she was Carmella's friend... who was married to Christopher, for talking to the FBI.

The murder of Seth Rich and the murder of Donald Young have similar fact patterns but no media wants to touch the 2007 Donald Young murder.

"They took Donald Young's life in 2007 literally for no reason." They did it to protect Soetoro's Life on the Down Low scheme at Wright's church.

If you go back and look at John Podestas emails that were released at the time you will find one that states,we have to find who is leaking these emails and we need to make an example of them.
There to speculate what that might mean?
