(National Sentinel)Â Political intrigue:Â As official Washington hyperventilates over whether or not President Donald J. Trump revealed highly classified information to Russian diplomats during a high-level meeting in the Oval Office last week, the reallyÂ big news is of course being ignored – again – by the pathetic establishment media.
Fox News‘Â Malia Zimmerman is reporting a bombshell – murdered Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich hadÂ multiple contacts with officials at WikiLeaks and had leaked “thousands of emails” from the DNC to the whistleblower site:
A federal investigator who reviewed an FBI forensic report detailing the contents of DNC staffer Seth Richâ€™s computer generated within 96 hours after his murder, said Rich 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.
â€œI have seen and read the emails between Seth Rich and Wikileaks,â€ 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 Richâ€™s family to probe the case. Rich was shot from behind in the wee hours, but was not robbed.
â€œMy investigation up to this point shows there was some degree of email exchange between Seth Rich and Wikileaks,â€ Wheeler said. â€œI do believe that the answers to who murdered Seth Rich sits on his computer on a shelf at the DC police or FBI headquarters.â€
The federal investigator, who requested anonymity, said 44,053 emails and 17,761 attachments between Democratic National Committee leaders, spanning from January 2015 through late May 2016, were transferred from Rich to MacFadyen before May 21.
You may recall that just 12 days after Rich was gunned down – withÂ nothing taken – WikiLeaks published internal DNC emails that implicated top party officials conspiring to ensure that Hillary Clinton received the Democratic presidential nomination at any cost, and to stop Sen. Bernie Sanders’ rising popularity. The controversy resulted in Debbie Wasserman Schultz having to resign as head of the DNC.
Also, several Sanders supporters refused to back Clinton and instead formed groups to work against herÂ and the Democratic Party.
Though WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has not come out and publicly said he was working with Rich, he did offer $20,000 to anyone who had information regarding Rich’s murder.
Washington Metropolitan Police have no leads in the case and don’t appear to be willing to generate any.Â Fox News has repeatedly attempted to discuss the case with the department but no one is talking.
The FBI also would not comment on the story but other sources told the network that the bureau provided cyber expertise toÂ let outside investigators look at Rich’s computer.
For his part, Wheeler smells a cover-up of the highest order – and, of course, it involvesÂ Hillary Clinton and the Democrats.
â€œMy investigation shows someone within the D.C. government, Democratic National Committee or Clinton team is blocking the murder investigation from going forward,â€ Wheeler told Fox News. â€œThat is unfortunate. Seth Richâ€™s murder is unsolved as a result of that.â€
There is additionalÂ significance to this case thatÂ Fox NewsÂ did not report, and it has to do with this bogus Democrat and establishment media-generated Russia-Trump-election hoax.
As we noted back in January, Assange has repeatedly said that RussiaÂ was not the source of the DNC emails he obtained, and that the entire Russia theory was nothing but an effort to undermine incoming President Donald J. Trump and his administration. Former Trump campaign official Roger Stone confirmed this just last week.
â€œTheyâ€™re trying to delegitimize the Trump administration as it goes into the White House,â€ Assange said during an interview with Fox Newsâ€™s Sean Hannity.
â€œThey are trying to say that President-elect Trump is not a legitimate president,â€ Assange said.
The Russians, though? WereÂ they the source of the leaked documents and emails?
â€œOur source is not a state party, so the answer for our interactions is no,â€ he said.
AÂ month before our report, Natural News, citing theÂ UK’sÂ Daily Mail, reported that the emails obtained by WikiLeaks from the DNC came from a disgruntled insider and Sanders supporter -Â not the Russians:
After days of witnessing the left-wing media hyperventilate over completely fabricated claims that â€œthe Russiansâ€ hacked the DNC emails and turned them over to Wikileaks, it turns out the emails were actually leaked by a DNC insider who was angry about the orchestrated elimination of Bernie Sanders by Clinton operatives.
The UK Daily Mail is now reporting that Craig Murray, the former British ambassador to Uzbekistan, personally met the email leaker who handed him the emails files later released by Wikileaks. The email leaker, a Bernie Sanders insider, was reportedly motivated by â€œdisgust at the corruption of the Clinton Foundation and the tilting of the primary election playing field against Bernie Sanders,â€ reports the Daily Mail.
The hand-off took place in Washington D.C. in a wooded area near American University, Murray explained.
â€œAs Julian Assange has made crystal clear, the leaks did not come from the Russians,â€ writes Murray on his website. â€œAs I have explained countless times, they are not hacks, they are insider leaks â€“ there is a major difference between the two. And it should be said again and again, that if Hillary Clinton had not connived with the DNC to fix the primary schedule to disadvantage Bernie, if she had not received advance notice of live debate questions to use against Bernie, if she had not accepted massive donations to the Clinton foundation and family members in return for foreign policy influence, if she had not failed to distance herself from some very weird and troubling people, then none of this would have happened. The continued ability of the mainstream media to claim the leaks lost Clinton the election because of â€˜Russiaâ€™, while still never acknowledging the truths the leaks reveal, is Kafkaesque.â€
Two things are now crystal clear following this bombshellÂ Fox News report: A) The Russians did NOTÂ hack the DNC (and if that isÂ still being refuted by Democrats, then they need to explain whyÂ the party never allowed the FBI to examine the DNC systems that were allegedly “hacked”); and B) Any continued suggestion by the discredited establishment media and its Democratic sycophants that Russia is guilty and they are not,Â is completely bogus.
We are not suggesting that Moscow is a friend of the United States by any measure, only that blame for this massive cover-up and conspiracy be placed where it belongs – the criminal enterprise known as the Democratic Party.
Update: 17 May – Some sources are recanting parts of their storyÂ regarding what evidence they did and did not see, as the Washington Examiner is reporting. However, as our story indicates, the Fox News reportÂ echoes in large part the earlier reporting by the Daily Mail, the basis of which is that Russia was not the supplier of hacked DNC emails – that they came from a disgruntled DNC insider upset about the party’s treatment of Sen. Bernie Sanders. While parts of the Fox News report may or may not be true, we stand by the overall premise ofÂ our story, and point out that the facts of the earlier Daily Mail story have not been recanted or revised, to our knowledge.
