(PatriotWise.com)- The FBI just released records relating to Seth Rich, the Democratic National Committee staffer who was murdered in front of his home in Washington, D.C. in 2016. It’s a particularly interesting move given that the agency had previously claimed that the files…didn’t exist.
The documents were released over the weekend, and appear to show that an unnamed entity, whether that is an individual or organization, paid or intended to pay a substantial amount of money to kill the young man.
Seth Rich’s death prompted a lot of concerns among Republicans that the murder might have been a political hit job from someone in or connected to the DNC, but Democrats repeatedly dismissed Republicans who expressed that opinion as conspiracy theorists. However, the latest files show that top officials from the Department of Justice actually met in 2018 to discuss the murder, and found that Rich engaged in no suspicious behavior just before he died.
So who would want to kill him?
Most media outlets, Democrats, and commentators simply dismissed the Seth Rich case as a robbery that went wrong, but that theory has never made much sense as none of Rich’s valuable items were stolen from him – when they easily could have been,
According to the new FBI documents, which total 68 pages, none of the witnesses who were interviewed by federal agents during the investigation reported any suspicious or odd behavior from Rich during the days, weeks, and months before he was killed.
Documents show how one witness saw somebody walking away from where Rich was killed, but believed that Rich was simply intoxicated with alcohol and so didn’t alert the authorities. The witness said that they only realized something was wrong when they saw blood on the ground in the same place the next day, as well as police officers on the scene.
One person, whose name was redacted in the documents, said that they took Rich’s personal laptop to his house, and that federal agents are unaware of whether anything on the laptop was changed or deleted.
Another page of the documents said, “given [redacted] it is conceivable that an individual or group would want to pay for his death.”
How about that, huh?
The documents were only released because a federal judge ordered them to be produced by April 23. Out of 576 documents identified by the FBI as relevant, however, only 68 were made available to Brian Huddleston, the plaintiff in a lawsuit filed with the express purpose of finding out what happened to Seth Rich.
Look what can happen from a simple Freedom of Information Act request…we now know that the FBI believes somebody would have feasibly wanted to kill Seth Rich!
