Somehow I don’t see the WaPo going to the ends of the earth to get to the bottom of this story ,
It is an intriguing story…certainly worth assigning a team of reporters to dig deeper into. Given the breathless reporting about allegations that RUSSIANS hacked the DNC a naive news consumer would think the matter rated blockbuster headlines. However, since it could reflect ominously on the DNC and Clinton campaign…and more importantly, tends to completely unravel the “Russian-Trump Collusion” narrative, this story is most likely to disappear without a trace within a couple of days. Excerpts follow.
C’est la vie…or, rather, ‘c’est la mort’ in Washington. (A little French just to again illustrate what a classy publication Veritaspac is)
A federal investigator who reviewed an FBI forensic report — generated within 96 hours after DNC staffer Seth Rich’s murder — detailing the contents Rich’s computer said he made contact with WikiLeaks through Gavin MacFadyen, a now-deceased American investigative reporter, documentary filmmaker, and director of WikiLeaks who was living in London at the time.
“I have seen and read the emails between Seth Rich and WikiLeaks,” the federal investigator told Fox News, confirming the MacFadyen connection. He said the emails are in possession of the FBI, while the stalled case is in the hands of the Washington Police Department.
The revelation is consistent with the findings of Rod Wheeler, a former DC homicide detective and Fox News contributor and whose private investigation firm was hired by Rich’s family to probe the case. Rich was shot from behind in the wee hours, but was not robbed.
“My investigation up to this point shows there was some degree of email exchange between Seth Rich and WikiLeaks,” Wheeler said. “I do believe that the answers to who murdered Seth Rich sits on his computer on a shelf at the DC police or FBI headquarters.”
We note that it was reported that Rich was shot in the back and nothing was taken, which we could imagine to be a purposeful point by the assailant not to have the matter confused with a robbery, but to send another message, to DNC leakers perhaps?
