Life in American politics is officially getting dangerous. Moreso than even when Allen Dulles was fired as the head of the CIA, but still ran the place.
On July 10, the American political establishment – elected officials, hangers on and the media – were stunned when a young man by the name of Seth Rich was murdered in his Washington, D.C., neighborhood in the wee hours of the morning. Seth Rich just happened to be the voter expansion data director for the Democratic National Committee. Rich was shot twice in the back in what DC police have speculated was a robbery gone bad…except he still had his cell phone, watch and wallet. (Hmm…)
In the succeeding days, right before the DNC Convention in the not so aptly named City of Brotherly Love, Philadelphia, Julian Assange’s Wikileaks released a whole lot of DNC emails that proved the Democrats submarined Bernie Sanders’ candidacy, were in cahoots with all sorts of mainstream media types, and basically forced out Debbie Wasserman-Schultz as chairman/woman/person.
On Tuesday August 9, the plot thickened. Wikileaks is offering a $20,000 reward for information on the murder of Seth Rich.
The journalist organization, which specializes in releasing classified or secret information, offered a $20,000 reward Tuesday to anyone with information on the murder of DNC staffer Seth Rich. His murder is the subject of multiple conspiracy theories, including one which alleges his death was retribution from the DNC for helping Wikileaks obtain party emails showing evidence of favoritism during the Democratic primary between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders.
“WikiLeaks has decided to issue a [$20,000] reward for information leading to conviction for the murder of DNC staffer Seth Rich,” read a tweet from the organization.
The announcement was made via Twitter and once again opened the lines for conspiracy theorists – and the Clinton Body Count – to question if Rich indeed was the leak. (One of the Clinton Body Count sources speculates that Rich was on his way to talk to the FBI when he was murdered.) If that wasn’t enough, on Tuesday, Julian Assange himself, the founder of Wikileaks appeared on Dutch television hmming and hawing around the question of Rich being the leak. Watch:

As uncomfortable as this video is, it should give all Americans pause. Wikileaks sources take tremendous risks to get information out to the public. We know that. Seth Rich was obviously murdered for some reason other than robbery. Assange all but says Seth Rich was a source, and he died for it. Wikileaks had to get those emails from someplace. This could very well be the case.
