2 Govt. Thugs Killed Seth Rich?

Seth Rich was murdered on the streets of Washington DC under mysterious circumstances. Rich’s death brought forth theories ranging from random robbery gone bad to Rich was assassinated under the belief he released sensitive DNC emails that the Dems still claim was the result of a Russian hack. The latter adds fuel to the oft discredited but all too plausible Clinton Body Count theory (SEE ALSO HERE).

 

Today a news conference took place under the auspices of a private investigation in which a witness is revealed that two suspects were involved in the murder. You could have watched the presser live on Youtube. Here is an hour and 40-minute version of that presser.

 

You can watch a shorter six and half minute video reporting on the press release subject matter:

Report: Witness Prepared to Identify Two Killers of Seth Rich

 

By Alicia Powe

July 9, 2018

Gateway Pundit

 

Disclaimer: This shocking information was given to The Gateway Pundit this weekend. We decided to report this news and will post an update following Tuesday’s press conference. [Blog Editor: as of typing this post Gateway Pundit hasn’t posted an update.]

 

 

Seth Rich

 

The Washington, D.C. lobbyist who has been on the hunt for Seth Rich’s killer found a “credible” witness who will identify the two men he believes murdered the DNC staffer.

 

Jack Burkman, a Washington-based attorney and lobbyist who has worked with a private investigative team to solve the Seth Rich murder mystery, told The Gateway Pundit that the witness has conclusive evidence that will bring Rich’s killers to justice within a month.

 

“We believe that we have reached the beginning of the end of the Seth Rich murder investigation,” Burkman told The Gateway Pundit in an exclusive interview Sunday.  “After two long hard years of work, we have a witness who is prepared to identify the two killers of Seth Rich. One is reportedly a current DEA (Drug Enforcement Administration) agent, the other is reportedly a current ATF (Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives) agent”

 

The witness, who “fears for his life,” will be accompanied by armed guards and disguise his identity as he details how two employees of the United States government killed Seth in a press conference slated for Tuesday.

 

 

Frank Whalen, a retired NYPD Detective Sergeant NYPD who served as the head of NYPD Homicide for 23 years, found the witness, Burkman explained.

 

“We found him through working with a retired New York City detective, who found him and brought him to us. We have thoroughly vetted this witness and we believe in this witness,” he said. “He has evidence that substantiates his claims but it will be revealed slowly. This witness is in great fear of his life – that’s why we are going with disguising him, disguising his voice and everything about him.”

 

Burkman, who has viewed surveillance footage from the night Rich was killed, says the witness’ testimony confirms two men involved in the shooting.

 

“What the witness says matches what the police say and matches what we know from the surveillance videos,” he said. “The police let me see the video. The police said the video clearly identifies the pant legs of two men. So, there were two men involved in the killing that night. I now believe that in the next 3 to 4 weeks the entire matter will be resolved. It’s the beginning of the end.”

Rich, 27, was a DNC voter expansion data director for two years and had accepted a position with Hillary Clinton’s campaign. He was murdered in Washington, D.C., on July 10, 2016, near his apartment in an affluent neighborhood. Rich was shot twice in the back with a handgun, and his wallet, credit cards, watch and phone were left in his possession. The Metropolitan Police Department has described it as a “botched robbery.”

 

Private investigators have claimed there is evidence Rich was the source who provided WikiLeaks with thousands of bombshell emails that rocked the Democratic National Committee in the summer of 2016 just ahead of its convention and the 2016 election. WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has also insinuated Rich was the source WikiLeaks used to obtain the emails.

The emails indicated the Democrat Party was manipulating the primary race in favor of Hillary Clinton and sabotaged the Bernie Sanders campaign, led to the resignation of then-DNC chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz. On July 22, just 12 days after Rich’s death and days before the Democratic Party Convention in Philadelphia, WikiLeaks released 20,000 emails from DNC officials.

 

As Gateway Pundit reported, Burkman was shot at and run over by the former U.S. Marine Kevin Doherty on March 13 who he hired to help him get to the bottom of the case. Doherty – who claims he worked as a special agent and criminal investigator in the intelligence community – was subsequently arrested by Arlington County police on charges of malicious wounding and use of a firearm in commission of a felony.

 

 

The witness informed Burkman that Doherty was well acquainted with the two government employees that killed Rich, but he was unaware Doherty worked as Burkman’s lead investigator and tried to kill him earlier in the year.

 

“The witness himself didn’t know that I had been shot by Kevin Doherty. Before we even told him that, he told us that Doherty was friends and palled around with the ATF agent and the DEA agent who shot Seth. That’s why we think the witness is credible,” he said. “There wasn’t much coverage of my shooting. The witness didn’t see the coverage and didn’t know. We didn’t tell him, he told us before we told him.”

“We believe that Kevin Doherty may have been a plant in my organization, to kill me and stop my investigation,” he added. “He was carefully playing the role.”

 

Despite nearly getting killed while investigating the Rich case, Burkman says he doesn’t “live in fear” and neither should the witness.

 

“I now have armed guards all the time. And we will have even more armed guards at the press conference the place will be surrounded with private armed security,” he said. “But once we start living in fear we might as well have Adolph Hitler in power. Once you live in fear, there’s no reason to have won World War II.”

 

Following the press conference, Burkman will hold a candlelight march to the spot where Rich was killed.

 

“I promised the Rich family that I would find their son’s murderer. Their son was a great patriot and a great young man and it is for that reason that I want to solve this murder,” Burkman said. “His heart was in the right place and I want to honor him. We are one big political fraternity. This could have happened to any of the young people who work for me, Republican or Democrat, I employ both. This could happen to anyone of those young people.”

 

Burkman has created, paid for and erected billboards in the neighborhood where Rich lived and died; built the website WhoKilledSeth.com  and canvassed the neighborhood with Seth Rich’s parents. Last year, he sued the Democratic National Committee for the release of the hacked DNC server he claimed will reveal key information in solving the murder of DNC staffer Seth Rich.

 

The DC-based attorney has also offered a $130,000 reward of his personal money for information leading to the arrest of Rich’s killer. WikiLeaks is offering $20,000, One America News Network $100,000, the D.C. Metropolitan Police Department $25,000 and Businessman and investor Martin Shkreli $100,000.

 

The DNC has yet to offer a reward for information leading to the arrest of the murderer of its own young staffer. The DNC honored its murdered employee by dedicating a bike rack outside its headquarters to Rich’s memory.

 

The press conference will be held at the Holiday Inn Rosslyn @ Key Bridge Hotel in Virginia at 1:00PM est. Attendees of the candlelight march will meet in the lobby of the hotel at 6pm est.

BOMBSHELL: HUNT FOR SETH RICH’S MURDERER TURNS UP ‘WITNESS’

‘Prepared to identify the 2 killers’

The convoluted case of the murder in Washington, D.C., of Democratic operative Seth Rich has taken another turn, with a lobbyist who has been investigating the case claiming a “credible” witness has been found.

 

Jack Burkman, a Washington-based lawyer and lobbyist, told the Gateway Pundit blog: “We believe that we have reached the beginning of the end of the Seth Rich murder investigation. After two long hard years of work, we have a witness who is prepared to identify the two killers of Seth Rich.”

 

Burkman told the blog in an exclusive interview on Sunday that one of the culprits identified by the witness is an agent for the Drug Enforcement Administration and the other is an agent for the ATF, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

Burkman said the witness has conclusive evidence that will bring the killers to justice.

 

As WND has reported, Rich, 27, the DNC’s voter expansion data director, had accepted a position with Democratic Party nominee Hillary Clinton’s campaign just before his death.

 

On July 10, 2016, he was fatally shot in the back in Washington, D.C., near his apartment in an affluent neighborhood. Rich had been working for the DNC at a time when emails from the organization were provided to WikiLeaks for publication.

 

The Metropolitan Police Department and Washington Mayor Muriel Bowers insist Rich was randomly killed during a “botched robbery.” But others are doubtful because he was found with his wallet, credit cards and other valuables.

 

The new Gateway Pundit report said the witness fears for his life, and plans to have armed guards and a disguise to protect him.

 

Burkman told the blog Frank Whalen, a retired NYPD detective sergeant, found the witness.

 

“We found him through working with a retired New York City detective, who found him and brought him to us. We have thoroughly vetted this witness and we believe in this witness,” Burkman said. “He has evidence that substantiates his claims but it will be revealed slowly. This witness is in great fear of his life – that’s why we are going with disguising him, disguising his voice and everything about him.”

 

WND has reported on the case since its outset, reporting just weeks ago the Department of Justice was refusing to release any records related to the murder, according to a lawyer who has been investigating the unsolved case.

 

The lawyer, Ty Clevenger, reported on LawFlog he received the news from the Executive Office for U.S. Attorneys.

 

“Actually, they have refused to release any records about Seth Rich at all, e.g., whether he had a security clearance or a background check.”

 

But he pointed out the “same office originally refused to even search for records related to Seth Rich, but it was overruled on October 2, 2017, after I appealed to DOJ’s Office of Information Policy.’

 

WND is serious about investigating the Seth Rich case through its conclusion. You can help us through our new GoFundMe page today!

 

WND reported last fall when Clevenger started his hunt for the Rich records.

 

After his FOIA request for records or correspondence about the murder or its investigation was rejected, the DOJ at that time told the U.S. Attorney’s Office for Washington, D.C., to hunt for records.

 

The U.S. Attorney’s Office originally put off Clevenger’s FOIA request, demanding he submit a death certificate to prove that Rich was dead.

 

“Since you have not furnished a release, death certificate, or public justification for release, the release of records concerning a third party would result in an unwarranted invasion of personal privacy and would be in violation of the Privacy Act, 5 U.S.C.§ 552a,” the office said.

 

But Clevenger appealed. And Sean R. O’Neil, the chief of administrative appeals at DOJ’s Office of Information Policy, directed the executive office for U.S. attorneys to search for and produce any records covered in Clevenger’s FOIA request.

 

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has hinted that Rich, and not Russian agents, may have been the source of the Democratic National Committee emails he published online.

 

The case has caused considerable distress for Democrats. WND reported last year when former DNC Chairwoman Donna Brazile appeared incoherent and agitated when WND approached her at a book signing to ask her questions about murdered DNC staffer Seth Rich.

 

Brazile said in her new book, which is dedicated to Rich, that she was deeply concerned about Rich’s mysterious murder and had discussed it in a phone call with Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton after Clinton’s election loss.

 

She wrote that she asked Clinton to contribute to a reward fund to help find the slain DNC staffer’s murderer, but Clinton ended the phone call.

 

The following is an excerpt from Brazile’s book “Hacks: The Inside Story of the Break-ins and Breakdowns That Put Donald Trump in the White House”:

 

I knew the campaign had over $3 million set aside in a legal fund. Could she help me get this lawsuit started? And don’t forget the murder of Seth Rich, I told her. Did she want to contribute to Seth’s reward fund? We still hadn’t found the person responsible for the tragic murder of this bright young DNC staffer.

 

You’re right, she said. We’re going to get to that. But she really had to go. She had made the call and checked it off her list, and I accepted after we said our good-byes that I might never hear from her again.

 

WND attended Brazile’s Dec. 12 book signing at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., and asked her why she believes Clinton seemed unconcerned about Rich’s murder and unwilling to allocate campaign money as a reward to find Rich’s killers.

 

But Brazile contradicted statements in her book, flat-out denying she even made them.

 

“You say in your book that you urged Hillary Clinton to use campaign funds as reward to find Rich’s murderer(s). And Clinton briefly responded by saying she really had to go,” WND stated, before Brazile interjected.

 

“I – I never read – I never wrote that. No,” she said.

 

“We discussed – on Dec. 1 we offered – Jim Roosevelt [co-chair of the DNC rules and bylaws committee] proposed that the DNC raise money to help with the reward fund, and we urged members to provide resources. But at no time did I tell Hillary – in the book, I said, ‘Don’t forget Seth Rich.’ That’s what I said in the book,” she claimed.

 

[WND video Donna Brazille – no embed – go to article]

 

WND also pressed Brazile on why the DNC has offered no reward money to help find Rich’s killers.

 

The former DNC chairwoman and CNN contributor then became visibly angry and accused WND of trying to “smear” Rich and his family for mere “sensationalism.”

 

“Once again, I would like to go on the record as saying that the attempt to smear Seth Rich has caused enormous harm to his family,” she charged. “Joel and Mary (Rich’s parents) deserve better than that kind of salacious, sensational type of journalism.”

 

At some points, she appeared lost for words and made bizarre and rambling statements:

 

[WND video Alicia Poe/Donna Brazille – no embed – go to article]

 

There’s no evidence whatsoever that Seth Rich computer, or any of his personal electronic gadgets was penetrated or infiltrated by any of those malware spyware. We had every computer, every cell phone, everything at the DNC reviewed on multiple occasions because of the nature of the attack.

 

In the entirety of the book, I mention, I dedicate the book to Seth Rich because Seth Rich belonged to, ah well, let me just say this. Seth Rich was a member of the voting rights department. I was the vice chair for civic engagement and voter participation. And when I wrote in the first instance about Seth Rich, when I heard about his death, I talked about July 10th, when I got the news that Seth was murdered. Some of you might remember during that period of time, it was following the shooting at Baton Rouge. And the shooting, the incident in Dallas. And when I first received this information that Seth was killed, the first thought in my head was, ‘Oh my god, Seth was in the wrong neighborhood at the wrong time.’

 

We live in Washington, D.C., and it bothered me. It bothered me that Seth was murdered, of course, because he was, you know, he belonged to the DNC. He was my kid, and I loved him. But it also bothered me that, uh, when I heard about what happened. I just thought that this might have been a racial incident. This was a period of heightened racial tension, not just in D.C. but across the country. Black Lives Matter and the police department, all of the protests across the country. That’s number one. So the context of me saying that was the context of what was happening on July 10, 2016, and what happened to Seth.

 

The context of who could have murdered Seth Rich, I don’t know. But what I do know is that his murderer is still some – or the people that murdered him – they have not been brought to justice. There’s a big reward for Seth, to capture and to bring – to find information – to bring it to justice. I know that Mayor [Muriel] Bowser and others are still concerned about what happened to Seth Rich, and I hope that we can finally bring to justice what happened.

 

Now, I know some people don’t understand anything about cyber security and hacking and harassment. Has anybody here as a part of OPM been harassed by the Chinese? Through the stealing of personnel files through the Office of Personnel Management? And do you recall at that time you receive a notice from OPM saying that you will have your information protected? And every year, I know every month, every month, I get a protect my ID status, OK.

 

Well, when this happened to us at the DNC, the first thing, because I had my information hacked through that illegal cyber-attack through OPM. That experience is one where, you know, you try to go and get a car, you try to go out and take out a loan, you know what that hacking caused you and the discomfort and I hope you continue to protect your individual identity and status. But when the Russian attack happened, this was one that no one provided us with any kind of protection. And so it was the responsibility of the Democratic National Committee – heh, who was broke – to provide protection. Similar to what OPM was providing me with the Chinese hacking, I had to provide that to the DNC, to the staff, to the donors and to others who had their personal information. And this just wasn’t just a normal threat, “Hey Geoff, you’re an X, hey Donna you’re a Y.” This was, this went beyond the name-calling. This went to our physical infrastructure. This went to our personhood. And I didn’t like it one bit; that’s why I changed our entire physical landscape at the DNC.

 

We put cameras everywhere. We began to protect ourselves because of the intrusion. Because of the way in which it came after our lives individually and personally and institutionally. They wanted to send a message. And for whatever reason why [Russian President Vladimir] Putin decided that he wanted to destroy the – I kept saying to myself – I used to scream out at night, “The Clinton campaign is – they, they got money – just leave us alone!” But this harassment continued and continued, up until Oct. 21.

 

And so no, I don’t allude in my book. I don’t practice the conspiracy theories that people have used to scar Seth’s memory, to hurt his family. I have been to Omaha. I have been to his synagogue. I have cried because of him. I love that boy. He was my child. I have dedicated a bike rack. I have gone out to raise money to help his family. Seth Rich, Seth Rich was a patriot. He was a great American, and he does not deserve to be, in anyway, he does not deserve the kind of outrageous conspiracy theories. And, yes, I told that to Sean Hannity. I’ll tell it to anyone else.

 

Seth was a patriot. He was a good patriot. He was a good person. He worked very hard. His colleagues at the DNC miss him. His family, Joel and Mary, they miss him. They are going through yet another Hanukkah without their son tonight. And I loved him, and he was my child. And I will always say good things about him. I get emotional about Seth. I love Seth. I love all my kids at the DNC.

Dem Canova Champions Truth about Rich Murder


John R. Houk

© June 29, 2017

 

It is my belief that Seth Rich’s murder is significant enough to keep following. Rich’s murder suspiciously occurred after he was suspected as being the secret whistleblower that released DNC emails to Wikileaks (NOT the Russia Fake News) that demonstrated inherent Democratic Party corruption ensuring Crooked Hillary won the Dem nomination over Bernie Sanders.

Some insights about Seth Rich. He was a Bernie supporter which means he was probably even more Marxist in ideology than Crooked Hillary. That which makes Rich’s murder significant is the reputation of the Clintons in destroying lives that threaten the Clinton image personally and legally.

 

Hence, when I run into a story about Seth Rich that adds more narrative to the young man’s murder is something I run with. Alicia Powe writing for WND is going with a story about Tim Canova running against Debbie Wasserman Schultz within the Dem Party for her District nomination for Congress.

 

The significance of the Canova-dethrone run against Schultz is that she was exposed as being front and center in rigging the Crooked Hillary nomination. AND Canova is focusing on the lack of a proper police investigation by the Washington D.C. Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) of Seth Rich’s murder.

 

If you primarily read, listen or watch Mainstream Media (MSM); you may not be aware the MPD is pushing the theory that Rich met his demise in a botched street robbery that had no witnesses and nothing – as in no available valuables whatsoever – was taken. AND Seth Rich was taken alive to a hospital reportedly on the road to recovery yet died mysteriously in the hospital bed.

 

Does this sound like a botched robbery to you?

 

In full disclosure, Canova like murder victim Seth Rich was a Bernie Sanders supporter. Meaning again he is another Dem that will lean way to the Left of Crooked Hillary or Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz. Ergo, if Canova overcomes the Leftist Dem Establishment and defeats Schultz, it will still not be good for America for another Marxist-Socialist to beat out the Republican nominee in the same Florida District.

 

NEVERTHELESS, any focus on exposing the truth behind Seth Rich’s murder will be a good thing.

DEBBIE WASSERMAN SCHULTZ CHALLENGER: PROBE SETH RICH MURDER

‘I know millions of people … just want to know what happened in this investigation’

 

By ALICIA POWE

WND

 

Murdered DNC staffer Seth Rich

 

WASHINGTON – Any American who cares about the rule of law should be demanding the truth about the mysterious murder of DNC staffer Seth Rich, says Tim Canova, a Democratic law professor who is challenging former DNC chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz for her congressional seat in 2018.

 

Canova has been slammed by left-leaning media outlets for calling attention to the unusual circumstances surrounding the July 10, 2016, murder of Rich, the DNC voter-expansion data director who is rumored to have leaked DNC emails to WikiLeaks.

 

“There should be a thorough investigation of what happened,” Canova told WND. “I know millions of people are asking the same question – they just want to know what happened in this investigation. That’s really all I am guilty of, making that plea for a thorough transparent investigation.”

 

He continued: “Whether we are talking about Seth Rich or anyone else, if you believe in the rule of law, you should want to apprehend people who commit these types of crimes, and I say that without speculating about who did it. I am grateful [WND] is looking into it.”

Canova’s 2018 opponent, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., served as DNC chairwoman until emails were made public by WikiLeaks revealing that under her leadership the DNC collaborated to undermine Bernie Sanders’ campaign.

Unsolved murder of Seth Rich

 

As WND has reported, Rich, 27, had accepted a position with Hillary Clinton’s campaign just before his death. He was murdered in Washington, D.C., near his apartment in an affluent neighborhood. Rich was shot twice in the back with a handgun, and his wallet, credit cards, watch and phone were left in his possession. The Metropolitan Police Department has described the murder as a “botched robbery.”

 

Private investigators have claimed there is evidence Rich was the source WikiLeaks used to obtain thousands of Democratic National Committee emails released on the eve of the party’s presidential nominating convention last July. The emails, indicating the party was manipulating the primary race in favor of Hillary Clinton, led to the resignation of Wasserman Schultz. On July 22, just 12 days after Rich’s death and days before the Democratic Party Convention in Philadelphia, WikiLeaks released 20,000 emails from DNC officials.

 

WND has launched a GoFundMe campaign to get to the bottom of the Seth Rich murder. Help us find out what really happened to the DNC staffer!

 

Former detective Rod Wheeler

 

Also as WND has reported, former detective Rod Wheeler was initially hired by Rich’s parents through a third party to find their son’s killer. Wheeler alleges former interim DNC chairwoman Donna Brazille contacted the Metropolitan Police Department demanding to know why he was “snooping” after Wheeler began investigating Rich’s murder. As a result, he said, law-enforcement authorities are now refusing to provide him with more details about the case.

 

Wheeler and another source also told WND that the family’s spokesman, Brad Bauman – a Democratic political crisis consultant – was “assigned” to the family by the DNC. Bauman denies the DNC hired him to represent the Rich family, calling the claim “patently 100 percent false.”

 

As WND reported, the total reward for solving Rich’s murder currently stands at approximately a half-million dollars. However, the DNC has offered no reward for information leading to the arrest of the murderer of its own young staffer. Instead, the DNC honored its murdered employee by dedicating a bike rack outside its headquarters to Rich’s memory.

WND reporter, Alicia Powe, interviews D.C. locals about the Seth Rich murder investigation. To learn more on this story, read the article: http://www.wnd.com/2017/06/seth-richs-neighbors-sound-off-on-murder-mystery/

Media, critics pounce with ‘conspiracy’ label

 

Establishment media have ignored recent revelations concerning Rich’s case. The little coverage of the investigation has been devoted to dismissing speculation surrounding Rich’s murder as “conspiracy.” And Canova has been ridiculed for speaking out about the unsolved crime.

 

In a DailyKos article headlined, “Democrat pushing hateful Seth Rich conspiracy theory to run against Wasserman Schultz again,” Jeff Singer wrote, “Rich’s parents have repeatedly begged people to stop dragging their son through the mud to advance their own agenda, and we can only hope that Canova will listen and stop spreading these lies.”

 

After weighing in on social media about the Seth Rich murder mystery, Canova quickly became the target of widespread criticism.

 

 

 

“I Facebook live-streamed walking past his murder scene. I happened to be in Washington at the time,” Canova told WND. “People objected. They thought I was trying to use his murder for political reasons, that I was disregarding the feelings of Seth Rich’s family. So I took down the video. It’s others, my opponents, who want to politicize the Seth Rich murder.”

 

He continued: “I think the criminal justice system has to be able to work without political interference. I cross my fingers and hope that the Seth Rich family and others are pushing for a complete investigation.”

Why do mainstream and left-leaning media outlets continue to berate those who suspect Rich’s murder wasn’t robbery related, labeling them as “conspiracy theorists”?

 

“The mainstream media, they are looking to divide the progressive left,” Canova said. “They are looking to demonize and discredit. They try to discredit, and they engage in their own conspiracy theorizing. I’m very unconcerned with what the mainstream media are saying on any given day at this point. I am reaching the voters, where the voters live and where the voters work, and we are talking to the about real issues, the issues they care about.

 

“Ordinary people,” he continued, “don’t really give a damn about what the mainstream media are saying. There is a reason why the media are so low in digits in approval ratings. They are lower than Congress at this point.”

 

WND has launched a GoFundMe campaign to get to the bottom of the Seth Rich murder. You can personally help us get to the truth of what really happened.

 

‘My politics were very aligned with Sanders’

 

Canova told WND he has been a longtime supporter of Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt.

 

“In 2011, I was appointed by Sen. Bernie Sanders to a select advisory committee on reforming the Federal Reserve, so for years I had been doing a lot of work on the Federal Reserve and other financial institutions like the International Monetary Fund,” he said. “My politics were very aligned with Sanders.”

 

Sanders, then a presidential candidate, endorsed Canova, stating in May 2016 that “[Canova’s] views are much closer to mine than to Wasserman Schultz’s.”

 

Democratic presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., debate in 2016

 

After Canova became outspoken about Seth Rich’s unsolved murder, Sanders declined to endorse the law professor in his second Democratic bid for the Florida seat.

 

Sanders told the Miami Herald: “I have no idea about Tim Canova, I honestly don’t. I know nothing about Tim Canova.”

 

Leading conservatives, including Fox News host Sean Hannity and best-selling author Ann Coulter, argue that Democrats’ ongoing probe of the Trump administration’s alleged collusion with Russia, supposedly to rig the election by hacking DNC emails, will be derailed completely if Rich is proven to have leaked the DNC emails.

 

Canova concurs with that assessment, arguing that Democrats are hurting themselves by focusing on Russia.

 

“I am not one to think that the Russian focus is a productive one. I think it a very counterproductive one for the Democratic Party,” he said. “A lot of folks want to see more hard evidence if that’s what happened. Even taking their narrative as the truth, if the Russians can hack into our election systems, anyone can hack into our election system. And we need to focus a lot on election integrity.”

 

He continued: “I don’t have the time to focus on any of this Russia stuff. I am running for office, and I am focused on constituents, who are every day [working to] making ends meet, and worried out of their minds about their job prospects, the job prospects of their children, the health care for their aging parents. These are real issues that real people care about.”

 

DNC and Wasserman Schultz sued for election ‘rigging’

 

As WND reported, the DNC and Wasserman Schultz are currently facing a class-action lawsuit filed by attorneys Elizabeth and Jared Beck on behalf of Bernie Sanders supporters who claim they sought to rig the election.

 

On June 13, lawyers and plaintiffs suing the DNC told the U.S. District Court in Florida that they’re being harassed with threatening messages and “freaky” encounters and they fear for their safety – particularly in the wake of the mysterious and unsolved murder of Rich – but the court denied their request for protection.

 

On June 1, the Becks filed a motion in court claiming they received a voice-modulated phone call from a number matching Debbie Wasserman Schultz’ office.

 

Elizabeth Beck told WND someone called her office using a voice-changing device and inquiring about the DNC lawsuit. She said this phone number, belonging to Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s Aventura, Florida, office, popped up on the phone’s caller ID (Photo: Beck)

 

One of the plaintiffs, Angela Monson, claimed in an affidavit to have awakened to her porch door open. She said both of her computers had been moved and showed evidence of tampering.

 

Similarly, Canova, who lost his 2016 Democratic primary bid against Wasserman Schultz, alleged June 17 in a now-deleted tweet that his computer was hacked and an electrical surge had fried both of his computers, after he announced an official rematch against her.

 

Canova Tweet: Tonight I announced my 2018 candidacy

 

“Announced last night 8 p.m. run vs. @DWSTweets again,” Canova wrote, implying the disgraced former DNC chair may have been linked to the alleged attack. “At 2 a.m. my computer was attacked & surge protector fried. Same happened last campaign.”

 

Wasserman Schultz ‘put finger on the scale … to clear field for Hillary

 

As a longtime Sanders supporter and an outspoken advocate of election integrity, Canova told WND he was infuriated by the foul play that took place within the Democratic Party during its primary.

 

“It became increasingly clear that as chair of the DNC, [Wasserman Schultz] was putting her fingers on the scale to try to undermine the Sanders campaign and to clear the field for Hillary Clinton,” he said. “That aggravated me. I had already been a Bernie Sanders supporter from early on when he got in the race. As it became increasingly clear that Wasserman Schultz wasn’t just [failing to represent] her constituents but was really doing an atrocious job as DNC chair, undermining democracy within the Democratic Party, it made the urgency of challenging her that much more acute.”

 

Canova said Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s record of taking hundreds of thousands of dollars from corporations, while doing nothing to help her constituents, compelled his candidacy.

 

“During the course of her career, she had taken millions of dollars from big Wall Street banks, fossil fuels and other big corporate interests.

 

“She took money from private prison corporations, and was pushing for a private prison in our district. Their district has a lot of problems, especially economic problems. Low income, out of work, under employed – and it’s never been on her agenda. It’s been a very corporate agenda,” he explained. “So we started to look around for someone who would challenge her. No one else would, and I did. I am continuing to for those reasons. I think our district needs representation.”

 

Canova said he’s disappointed not only in Wasserman Schultz, but in the entire Democratic establishment.

 

“When I ran against Wasserman Schultz, I was running against the entire establishment, the entire time,” he said. “My beef is not just a personal one with Wasserman Schultz. My campaign is not just about replacing a single congresswoman but the party’s politics. [I’m] hoping it’s … not too late to reform this party.”

 

Canova said he believes he has a better chance of winning the primary in 2018 now that Hillary Clinton is not running as the party’s nominee for president.

 

To ensure Democratic Party establishment doesn’t rig the election against him, as it’s accused of doing to Sanders, Canova said he plans to pay for a recount, “no matter the election outcome.”

 

“Certainly, millions of Americans have concerns about the fairness of elections and the way the ballots are counted,” he said. “Election integrity is an enormous issue for my campaign. Really, it should be an enormous issue nationwide right now.”

 

Canova argued that Wasserman Schultz is viewed as a liability, even among party insiders, after being forced to resign as DNC chair.

 

“This time, I am in early,” he said. “This time, she is not going to be in a Clinton White House or cabinet. And I am not so sure she can count on the same level of support even from the establishment. Nobody wants to be seen standing next to her and campaigning for her. It’s a different race.”

TV NEWS NETWORK BOOSTS SETH RICH REWARD


I am stunned that the Leftist MSM has ignored the OBVIOUS discrepancies in the reports of the D.C. Police (officially the Metropolitan Police Department or MPD) and FBI on the murder of DNC staffer Seth Rich! The police are officially calling Rich’s murder a robbery gone wrong. AND YET Rich’s wad of cash, expensive watch, wallet and credit cards were ALL found on him. Oh yeah, has anyone mention that even though it is reported Rich was shot twice in the back he did not die on the scene. Rather Rich was rushed to the hospital by ambulance quite alive with quite survivable gunshot wounds. AND YET Seth Rich died mysteriously in the hospital.

 

WND has the details below which incorporates the reporting of One America News Network (OANN). (I find it suspicious that my browser cannot access ANYTHING to do with OANN. I don’t know if the website is down or if my Chrome browser is blocking access or if my Internet Provider (Cox Communications) is blocking access. The only reason I could think of for Cox blocking access is OANN actually has a news channel on Cox’s competitor Direct TV. Or is it something even more nefarious? Could Obama-Friendly Government Intelligent services be involved in blocking OANN? I don’t know, the could be as simple as the website is down. I simply have a huge mistrust with anything to do with the American Left and truthfulness these days.)

TV NEWS NETWORK BOOSTS SETH RICH REWARD

Murdered DNC staffer Seth Rich

 

WASHINGTON – A budding independent TV news company is jumping into the Seth Rich murder case with both feet today – boosting the reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the slain Democratic National Committee employee’s killer or killers by an additional $100,000 and issuing a step-by-step report on why the mysterious death is more than a “conspiracy theory.”

 

With the additional reward money, the total amount from various sources has reached $245,000.

 

“We want to stress that our only agenda is finding the truth and that everything we report here is revealing the facts that we’ve uncovered in our investigation,” said Pearson Sharp in a new One America News broadcast on the case. OANN is on DirectTV and carried by many cable providers across the nation.

 

“Facts,” he emphasized, “and not opinions. And from an objective standpoint they simply don’t add up.”

 

While the report covers many of the details uncovered and published by WND.com in a sweeping story two weeks agoit also raises some new issues.

 

Watch the OANN report on the Seth Rich murder case:

 

[Blog Editor: I can’t find the embed from WND of their version of the OANN report. I am choosing to not figure out how to find the WND embed. BUT I have found the exact same video on Youtube courtesy of the  Yankee Apocalypse Channel. Rather than posting the video at this article location as WND, I am posting it at the end of the WND cross post in order to place the entirety of the description comment from Yankee Apocalypse.]

 

More on the Seth Rich case:

See the latest from Judicial Watch on the Seth Rich case

 

One of the first responding police officers the morning Rich was shot was Robert Wingate Robinson. OANN reports he was a student at Georgetown University when John Podesta, Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager, was a professor there. His sister, Nandy, the network reports, worked for the Clinton campaign as a research assistant in 2016. Since then she’s worked for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee as a researcher.

 

The network reminds viewers that Rich was alive and talking to police and EMTs before being hospitalized, raising questions about what he may have been able to tell them. If he told them it was a botched robbery, that evidence has certainly not been made public.

 

The report also cites an anonymous Internet post by a person claiming to be a fourth-year resident at the hospital who confirmed Rich was not only alive when he arrived, but that his injuries were not life-threatening. Though the anonymous report cannot be confirmed, the resident said he was ordered not to visit Rich on his rounds because he was surrounded by law-enforcement officers and would only be seen by his attending physician.

 

That physician, OANN reports, was Dr. Jack Sava, a donor to Hillary Clinton’s campaign, who visited the White House six times before the day of Seth Rich’s murder. His wife reportedly visited the White House 23 times during that same time period. They both reportedly visited the East Wing, reserved for then-first lady Michelle Obama and her staff.

 

In addition, the network reports, the manager of Lou’s City Bar [Blog Editor: Interesting info on the manager identity], the establishment Rich left early the morning he was shot, had also visited the White House July 6 – days before Rich was killed.

 

What about political connections at the police department that have been alleged?

 

OANN cites Heather Podesta’s seat on the board of the Washington Police Foundation where she served with former Washington Police Chief Kathy Lanier.

 

OANN’s report stated no evidence has been produced to date suggesting the WikiLeaks emails of Podesta and Hillary Clinton were the results of a Russian hack. The Democrat National Committee did not ask the FBI to investigate the source of the leaks. Instead, as WND has reported, the investigation was conducted by the DNC’s chosen private firm, CrowdStrike, which, interestingly, was founded by the Moscow-born Dmitri Alperovitch, a nonresident senior fellow at the globalist Atlantic Council, which has ties to Hillary Clinton.

 

“I’m glad to see another independent news organization jumping into the investigation of Seth Rich’s death,” said Joseph Farah, founder and editor of WND.com. “We welcome the help. And we certainly welcome impartial official investigations with full subpoena power – something journalists don’t have.”

 

Rich’s murder is one of 65 unsolved cases in D.C. from 2016His was the only murder last year in the quiet, well-to-d0 Bloomingdale neighborhood. There have been a total of five homicides in Bloomingdale since 2012, according to the Twitter feed DCHomicideCount.

VIDEO: OAN Report on the murder of Seth Rich

 

Posted by Yankee Apocalypse

Published on May 29, 2017

 

(Zero Hedge) May 26, 2017 – Via Disobedient Media – The San Diego based One American News Network has released a new report highlighting key elements of the mystery surrounding the murder of DNC staffer Seth Rich. OANN cites a number of inconsistencies and lingering questions in the case, while also noting that Rich’s murder occurred in close proximity to the similarly strange death of UN official John Ashe. Ashe was found dead just days before he was set to testify against Clinton in relation to matters pertaining to a corruption case where Chinese billionaire Charlie Trie helped launder $1.2 million dollars as part of Chinese government efforts to influence Bill Clinton’s 1996 presidential election. Ashe’s death was originally reported as a heart attack, but the story changed after it emerged that the cause was in fact a crushed windpipe in what was labeled a “workout accident.” The full report can be viewed here:

On May 25th, one day before OANN’s report, a representative of the media company made a post on the online messageboard 4chan appealing for help locating information regarding the doctor who treated Seth Rich for gunshot injuries he sustained during the incident. Within minutes of the post, OANN’s website was taken offline in a Distributed Denial of Service (DDOS) attack.

The findings of the report offer fresh insights what is appearing to be a story of complex political corruption and Democratic National Committee (DNC) attempts to downplay the scandal. Disobedient Media has previously reported on the extensive ties that key players in the Seth Rich case have to the DNC, the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) and the Rose Law Firm, the law firm which was at the center of the 1990’s Whitewater Controversy.

(Gateway Pundit) May, 28, 2017 – On July 8, 2016, 27 year-old Democratic staffer Seth Conrad Rich was murdered in Washington DC. The killer or killers took nothing from their victim, leaving behind his wallet, watch and phone.

Shortly after the killing, Redditors and social media users were pursuing a “lead” saying that Rich was en route to the FBI the morning of his murder, apparently intending to speak to special agents about an “ongoing court case” possibly involving the Clinton family.

Seth Rich’s father Joel told reporters, “If it was a robbery — it failed because he still has his watch, he still has his money — he still has his credit cards, still had his phone so it was a wasted effort except we lost a life.”

In August Wikileaks offered a $20,000 reward for information on the murder of DNC staffer Seth rich. Julian Assange also suggested in August that Seth Rich was a Wikileaks informant.

On Friday American businessman Martin Shkreli offered $100,000 reward for information on Seth Rich’s murder.

Now this. OAN offered $100,000 reward for information on Seth Rich’s murder (This report says OAN offered $250,000 but it cannot be verified).

That brings the total up to at $245,000 in cash reward for information on Seth Rich’s murder.
