(National Sentinel)Â Political espionage:Â Last week we reported on the blockbuster story broken byÂ Fox News that murdered Democratic National Committee staffer Seth RichÂ hadÂ multiple contacts with officials at WikiLeaks and had leaked â€œthousands of emailsâ€ from the DNC to the whistleblower site.
â€œI have seen and read the emails between Seth Rich and Wikileaks,â€ aÂ federal investigator told Fox News.
Official Washington media pooh-poohed the revelation, as did the family of Rich.Â But now, there are new revelations to report.
Internet entrepreneur and hacker Kim Dotcom tweeted over the weekend thatÂ he and Rich were close and that the both of them worked to expose political shenanigans at the DNC by leaking stolen internal documents to WikiLeaks. And more, Dotcom is ready to provide the information to congressional investigators.
Once again,Â it wasn’t Russia, folks.
The upper echelons of the DNC are said to be in panic mode,Â The Gateway Pundit reported.
Dotcom tweeted this:

Then he tweeted this, which drew a response fromÂ Fox News host Sean Hannity:
— Kim Dotcom (@KimDotcom) May 20, 2017
I'm meeting my legal team on Monday. I will issue a statement about #SethRich on Tuesday. Please be patient. This needs to be done properly.

There’s more. Someone alleged anonymously on the 4Chan/pol subgroup, where revelationsÂ about political chicanery and intrigueÂ are regularly released, that high-ranking current and former DNC officials are terrified of anyÂ real Seth Rich investigation:
Anons, I work in D.C.
I know for certain that the Seth Rich case has scared the shit out of certain high ranking current and former Democratic Party officials.
This is the reason why they have backed away from impeachment talk. They know the smoking gun is out there, and theyâ€™re terrified you will find it, because when you do it will bring the entire DNC, along with a couple of very big name politicians.
It appears that certain DNC thugs were not thorough enough when it came time to cover their tracks. Podesta saying he wanted to â€œmake an example of the leakerâ€ is a huge smoking gun.
In a follow up post, the anonymous poster noted further:
The behavior is near open panic. To even mention this name in D.C. Circles [sic] will bring you under automatic scrutiny. To even admit that you have knowledge of this story puts you in immediate danger.
If there was no smoke there would be no fire. I have never, in my 20 years of working in D.C. Seen [sic] such a panicked reaction from anyone.
I have strong reason to believe that the smoking gun in this case is out o [sic] the hands of the conspirators, and will be discovered by anon. I know for certain that Podesta is deeply concerned. Heâ€™s been receiving anonymous calls and emails from people saying they know the truth. Same with Hillary.
Then Hannity, with a follow up:
Speaking of Podesta, right on cue the man starts dumping on President Donald J. Trump, perhaps as a means of distraction, with help, as usual, from the disgustingÂ establishment media. PerÂ Politico Magazine:
Donald Trump is â€œunfit for office,â€ a president whose actions are often â€œabsolutely crazyâ€ and whose White House has â€œa complete disregard for the truth.â€ His firing of James Comey as the FBI director was overseeing an investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 campaign and whether Trumpâ€™s advisers colluded with it amounts to â€œclose to an obstruction caseâ€ against the president.
But, says John Podestaâ€”the sharp-tongued campaign chairman for Hillary Clinton whose 60,000 hacked emails are at the heart of that FBI investigation into the team of the man who defeated themâ€”donâ€™t expect impeachment proceedings anytime soon.
Republican congressional leaders Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell have chosen to â€œVelcro their own political fateâ€ to Trumpâ€™s and wonâ€™t pursue allegations against the president of their own party unless forced to do so by a 2018 midterm election debacle or further revelations. â€œIt is clear to me that Republicans on Capitol Hill are not going to begin to turn on him at this point,â€ Podesta says.
Our first question is,Â why is this a ‘story’? Aren’tÂ Podesta and Clinton old news?Â All this story does is serve as a sour grapes platform for Podesta and his loser of a candidate, right?
True Â – to a point.
It also serves as a vehicle for the DNC to ‘explain’ why impeachment isn’t an option right now.
Hint: Given what you now know after reading our story, you know it’s not becauseÂ Republicans are “attached like Velcro” to the president, since there is nothing Trump has done that’s impeachable.
You now know it’s because of the DNC-WikiLeaks backstory.
We’ll follow this wherever it leads. Stay tuned. Meantime, read our earlier coverage regarding last week’s Seth Rich bombshell and why the Russian hack narrative doesn’t wash.
