On July 10, 2016, amidst the Hillary Clinton campaign and DNC being roiled by Wikileaks publications of DNC emails and Podesta emails, Seth Rich, a DNC data analyst, was shot two times in the back, murdered. At the time, Wikileaks had made it abundantly clear that despite reports claiming the DNC and the Clinton campaign had been hacked, the information given to them came from a “leak,” not a hack. After the murder, Wikileaks first offered a $20,000 reward and second, Wikileaks founder Julian Assange was interviewed, spoke directly about the “risks” that leakers faced, then used Seth Rich’s murder as an example of those risks.
While Wikileaks doesn’t openly reveal sources, Assange and Wikileaks are doing everything but drawing a map with huge arrow going from Wikileaks to Seth Rich.
Present Day – A Third party, dissatisfied with the “official” explanation that Rich was the victim of a random “robbery” attempt, especially since nothing was taken from him after being murdered, hired a private investigator, Rod Wheeler, who just happened to be a former DC police homicide detective, has uncovered “tangible evidence on Rich’s laptop that confirms he was communicating with WikiLeaks prior to his death,” as reported by Fox5 News.
Wheeler also told us, “I have a source inside the police department that has looked at me straight in the eye and said, ‘Rod, we were told to stand down on this case and I can’t share any information with you.’ Now, that is highly unusual for a murder investigation, especially from a police department. Again, I don’t think it comes from the chief’s office, but I do believe there is a correlation between the mayor’s office and the DNC and that is the information that will come out [Tuesday].
Below is the Fox News report on this “breathtaking breaking development” as it is described at the beginning of the segment.
WASHINGTON POST, MSM TRY TO BURY THE BOMBSHELL REVELATION
It is noteworthy that the only high profile reports on this bombshell revelation coming out of the MSM, is the Fox News report above. Searching for this, we find a number of Independent Media sites discussing this breaking and developing news, which seemingly confirms the “conspiracy theories” that have run rampant since Rich’s murder and the Wikileaks reward offer and Assange’s interview, but no other MSM outlet is reporting on this.
Is it a coincidence that just as the Seth Rich story was getting ready to break, the Washington Post once again publishes a story dealing with Trump and Russia, that has all the other MSM jumping on it, with claims from “unnamed” sources saying President Trump revealed “highly classified” information to the Russians during his White House meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, about terrorism threats?
We’ll discuss the “coincidental” timing a little further below, but first lets take a look at the non-story that the MSM is dedicating a stupid amount of ink on.
1st: The only named source the Wapo tale uses, is President Trump’s National security adviser H.R. McMaster, who was present in the meeting between President Trump and Lavrov, and calls the story “false.”
I have a brief statement for the record. There is nothing that the president takes more seriously than the security of the American people. The story that came out tonight as reported is false. The president and the foreign minister reviewed a range of common threats to our two countries, including threats to civil aviation.
At no time, at no time, where intelligent sources or methods discussed. And the president did not disclose any military operations that were not already publicly known. Two other senior officials who were present, including the Secretary of the State, remember the meeting the same way and have said so. Their on the record accounts should outweigh anonymous sources. I was in the room. It didn’t happen.
2nd: Even if elements of the story were true, the President of the United States has the constitutional authority to declassify information at will, as even Trump critics acknowledge.
Given both those points, where exactly is the “bombshell” in the Washington Post report, other than the Post admitting that anonymous Deep State sources, who do not have the authority to declassify information, revealed classified information to the Post?
Perhaps the bigger questions are 1) Is any of the Washington Post story true, given their recent history of “fake news” stories, corrections and denials; 2) What about this non-story justifies the Post and other MSM news outlets to completely ignore the murder of a DNC staffer with a connection to Wikileaks, at a time when massive DNC and Clinton campaign emails were leaked to Wikileaks?; 3) Did the Washington Post and other MSM outlets deliberately time this story to bury the Seth Rich revelation?
We will address all three of those questions below. …
