In recent weeks, the Washington soap opera has read more like a Tom Clancy espionage novel, complete with hacking, insider leaks, and even assassination.
For many readers, the assumption that an assassination occurred may come as a surprise. Surely, an action of this magnitude would come complete with enormous bouts of media coverage and outrage, right? We would we marching in the streets if a whistleblower was gunned down in D.C., right?
Unfortunately, no. The murder in question was committed against Seth Rich, a DNC insider and purported leaker of democratic secrets that gained worldwide attention after being divulged by Wikileaks. As with many, many people who undermine the likes of Hillary Clinton, Rich found himself deceased shortly after his American duty was fulfilled.
The mainstream media, due to their overwhelming liberal bias, has been stubbornly avoiding the Seth Rich story, hoping that they can abstain long enough to push the entire debacle into the fringes of reportable news, thereby delegitimizing Rich’s murder. Unfortunately for them, the story is spreading, and now appearing on major news networks thanks to Americans such as Newt Gingrich.
“This morning Newt Gingrich dropped a bomb on FOX and Friends on the Seth Rich story.
“Newt Gingrch: ‘People talk about was their influence from Russia? Does this mean they are going to look at the $500,000 paid to Bill Clinton? Does that mean they are going to look at the uranium deal that gave Russia 20% of the uranium while Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State? …At the same time we have this very strange story now. This young man who worked for the Democratic National Committee who apparently was assassinated at 4 in the morning after having giving Wikileaks something like 53,000 emails and 17,000 attachments. Nobody’s investigating that. And what does that tell you about what is going on?'”
Seth Rich’s murder was officially labeled as a mugging gone wrong by police, however, Rich’s watch, wallet, and other personal effects were untouched by the assailant, leading many to believe that his demise was purely due to his involvement in the take down of Hillary Clinton.
For what it’s worth, Hillary Clinton can be linked to a growing list of dead political opponents, making Seth Rich’s murder unfortunately old hat for those paying attention.
