On July 8, 2016, 27 year-old Democratic staffer Seth Conrad Rich was murdered in Washington DC. The killer or killers took nothing from their victim, leaving behind his wallet, watch and phone.
The (Rich) family hired Rod Wheeler to investigate their son’s murder. Wheeler told FOX 5 DC on Monday there is tangible evidence on Rich’s laptop that confirms he was communicating with WikiLeaks prior to his death.
A flashback to an email chain extracted from the ‘Podesta emails’ via Wikileaks in February of 2015, shows just how paranoid the Clinton campaign was about leaks to the press. John Podesta said in an email that he’s ‘definitely for making an example of a suspected leaker whether or not we have a real basis for it’ and that there are ‘stiff consequences for leaking’.
