Forget about Seth Rich; nothing to see here!

Oh!  The Daily Mail says it was nothing!  We should just go back to claiming Trump’s DC is a “scandal fest” and not worry about any unsolved murders which are totally NOT tied to Wikileaks.

According to the Daily Mail:

  1. The family is threatening to sue the PI for blabbing
  2. The PI recanted his story about Wikileaks
  3. Julian Assange said Rich wasn’t the leak
  4. The timeline of the murder “cut against” any conspiracy theories
  5. Russia did it

Wait, what?

However GOP lobbyist and DC lawyer Jack Burkman formally appealed to Congress to investigate the death after claiming he had evidence that Russia may be behind Rich’s murder.

‘Nothing was taken from Seth – not his wallet, gold chain, credit cards or a sizeable amount of cash,’ He told DailyMail.com in February. ‘So you know there’s no robbery gone awry.’

He said he was contacted by a man in his 60s, claiming to be a former US intelligence officer, who claimed ‘it [the murder] was arranged by the Russian government at a very high level’.

Burkman went on to say: ‘He just said he had knowledge it was arranged by the Russian government and stressed that it was at a high level.

‘I’ve met this person and he seems very credible. We’re now investigating the allegations he has made.’

You have got to be f’ing kidding me.  Why would high level Russian government officials want to kill a nobody staffer for the DNC? As for the other points:

  1. The family “spokesman” is a PR guy who works for the DNC.  Why is he acting in such a capacity?
  2. Strange that I didn’t see any headlines on DM when the recanting happened.  You’d think they’d like to rub that in.
  3. Can’t find where Julian supposedly “clarified” that Rich wasn’t the source
  4. The timeline is: he got drunk, left the bar, was shot, oh and we can’t actually account for all the time after he left the bar.  That sure is airtight, clears everything up.

Now, let’s say that PI was wrong, let’s say that Assange did come out and say “it’s not Seth Rich.”  Why is it that when ever his name gets brought up, the paid trolls and shills come out of the woodwork and start spewing everywhere?  Any pro-Rich conspiracy posts instantly get brigaded.  What is about Seth Rich that makes someone out there want no one to talk about him?

His name was Seth Rich and there will be justice.

His Name Was Seth Rich

And he wasn’t a Russian hacker.

Family’s private investigator: There is evidence Seth Rich had contact with WikiLeaks prior to death

Rich was shot and killed last July in Northwest D.C and police have suggested the killing in the District’s Bloomingdale neighborhood was a botched robbery. However, online conspiracy theories have tied the murder to Rich’s work at the DNC.

Just two months shy of the one-year anniversary of Rich’s death, FOX 5 has learned there is new information that could prove these theorists right.

Rod Wheeler, a private investigator hired by the Rich family, suggests there is tangible evidence on Rich’s laptop that confirms he was communicating with WikiLeaks prior to his death.

Now, questions have been raised on why D.C. police, the lead agency on this murder investigation for the past ten months, have insisted this was a robbery gone bad when there appears to be no evidence to suggest that.

Wheeler, a former D.C. police homicide detective, is running a parallel investigation into Rich’s murder. He said he believes there is a cover-up and the police department has been told to back down from the investigation.

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].

Of course there was nothing prior to this suggesting that Rich had anything to do with Wikileaks, ‘cept for last August Julian Assange just randomly out of the goodness of his heart offering a $20,000 reward for information about the murder:

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange implied in an interview that a murdered Democratic National Committee staffer was the source of a trove of damaging emails the rogue website posted just days before the party’s convention.

Speaking to Dutch television program Nieuswsuur Tuesday after earlier announcing a $20,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of Seth Rich’s killer, Assange said the July 10 murder of Rich in Northwest Washington was an example of the risk leakers undertake.

“Whistle-blowers go to significant efforts to get us material and often very significant risks,” Assange said. “As a 27-year-old, works for the DNC, was shot in the back, murdered just a few weeks ago for unknown reasons as he was walking down the street in Washington.”

The only way the media will take this seriously is if it turns out Rich’s real name was Dimitri.

In honor of Earth Day

Earth Day Co-Founder Killed, Composted Girlfriend

Ira Einhorn was on stage hosting the first Earth Day event at the Fairmount Park in Philadelphia on April 22, 1970. Seven years later, police raided his closet and found the “composted” body of his ex-girlfriend inside a trunk.

A self-proclaimed environmental activist, Einhorn made a name for himself among ecological groups during the 1960s and ’70s by taking on the role of a tie-dye-wearing ecological guru and Philadelphia’s head hippie…. He also claimed to have helped found Earth Day.

But the charismatic spokesman who helped bring awareness to environmental issues and preached against the Vietnam War — and any violence — had a secret dark side. When his girlfriend of five years, Helen “Holly” Maddux, moved to New York and broke up with him, Einhorn threatened that he would throw her left-behind personal belongings onto the street if she didn’t come back to pick them up.

And so on Sept. 9, 1977, Maddux went back to the apartment that she and Einhorn had shared in Philadelphia to collect her things, and was never seen again. When Philadelphia police questioned Einhorn about her mysterious disappearance several weeks later, he claimed that she had gone out to the neighborhood co-op to buy some tofu and sprouts and never returned.

It wasn’t until 18 months later that investigators searched Einhorn’s apartment after one of his neighbors complained that a reddish-brown, foul-smelling liquid was leaking from the ceiling directly below Einhorn’s bedroom closet. Inside the closet, police found Maddux’s beaten and partially mummified body stuffed into a trunk that had also been packed with Styrofoam, air fresheners and newspapers.

So not only was he a murderer, but he had no idea how to compost a body.  What a loser.

(Of interest, however, is the media’s insistence of framing everything in the most scandalous way possible.  The Earth Day people say Einhorn isn’t actually a co-founder.  Maybe he was, maybe he wasn’t.  It’s hard to say.  But “Earth Day Co-Founder” makes a better headline than “Random Hippie.”)
