There was recently a point in American society where you could not invoke the name “Seth Rich” without being laughed off of your conspiracy theory message board.
Rich, a former member of the DNC staff during the 2016 election, was believed to be involved in the leaking of John Podesta’s campaign emails to Wikileaks; an event that revealed an enormous closet full of skeletons for then-candidate Hillary Clinton, sinking her hopes of becoming the first female President of the United States. Before this could be confirmed, however, Seth Rich was gunned down in the streets of Washington D.C.
Police purported that Rich was killed in a “botched robbery” in which a “random” assailant murdered the DNC staffer, but did not take his wallet, phone, or expensive watch.
Of course, this left many with the idea that Rich was politically assassinated for his role in the disclosures that Wikileaks was making.
That theory was posited about quite a bit in the early days after his death, only to be shouted down by the mainstream media, Rich’s parents, and a great many politicians, who shamed amateur investigators to no end when it came to Seth’s story. Even Sean Hannity was forced to abandon his own journalistic efforts in the case by unseen forces.
Now, interim DNC Chief Donna Brazile, who was exposed by Wikileaks for assisting Hillary Clinton with early access to CNN debate questions, has raised Seth’s specter once again by dedicating her latest book to him.
“A new book by Donna Brazile, the former interim chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee (DNC), has been making headlines for its controversial claims about the 2016 presidential election and the Hillary Clinton campaign. But the provocative points start even before the first chapter, as Brazile reportedly dedicated the book in part to Seth Rich, the DNC staffer whose murder launched a conspiracy theory.
“Axios reported on Sunday that the book’s dedication reads, ‘In loving memory of my father, Lionel Brazile Sr.; my beloved sister, Sheila Brazioutlanle; my fearless uncles Nat, Floyd, and Douglas; Harlem’s finest, my aunt Lucille; my friend and mentor, David Kaufmann; my DNC colleague and patriot, Seth Rich; and my beloved Pomeranian, Chip Joshua Marvin Brazile (Booty Wipes). I miss y’all.’
“Brazile talked about Rich on ABC News’s This Week with George Stephanopouloson Sunday. She told the host about her critics: ‘They don’t know what it was like to be over the DNC during this hacking. They don’t know what it’s like to bury a child. I did: Seth Rich.’”
If Rich truly was the email leaker, then his unbelievable murder mystery deserves solving. His role as a patriot in a den of thieves should be lauded, but it will take real justice to confirm that circumstance.
Brazile calling more attention to the Seth Rich saga, particularly at a time in which Hillary Clinton and others are under mass scrutiny for their abhorrent ties to Russian political meddling through the Obama-era Uranium One deal, gives us a glimpse into what the interim DNC head believes the future of the democratic party will look like. Brazile is coming out swinging solidly in the direction of Hillary Clinton, a dangerous opponent if there ever was one, and by calling on Seth Rich, The Patron Saint of Democratic Assassinations, perhaps the former Clinton confidante is looking for a bit of insulation against her former boss.
