Seth Rich may have been the source of the DNC email leaks according to Julian Assange of Wikileaks. In an interview with a Dutch television crew, Assange references Seth when speaking about the safety of whistle-blowers and informants.
In an interview with a Dutch media outlet known as Nieuwsuur on Tuesday, Assange practically admitted that Seth Rich, a staffer in the voter data department of the Democratic National Committee, was Wikileak’s source within the organization. The leak resulted in a torrent of information to have been released causing grave damage to the integrity of the DNC and to Hillary Clinton’s campaign.
The email leak that contained memos, voicemails and file attachments led to the resignation of four top DNC officials, including Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz. CEO Amy Dacey, communications director Luis Miranda and chief financial officer Brad Marshall have also left the organization.
Seth Rich was 27 years old when they found him murdered a few blocks from his home in Washington, DC. The Washington Post writes that the police “have no suspects, witnesses or motive, though they are looking at whether Rich could have been slain in an attempted robbery.”
While the case remains open, a $25,000 reward has previously been offerred, but Wikileaks has offered another $20,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for Rich’s death.

Assange, neglected to confirm Rich as the source of the leak in the interview with Nieuwsuur, but his response to the questions are convincing enough. He appears to be shocked by the assocation of Rich to the DNC emails and the guilt of how to respond washes over his face.
I am not surprised that Rich was the source as I claimed this almost a week ago. I received this information as a tip along with other claims of hidden camera recordings of Hillary Clinton admitting to treasonous crimes while naming others involved. These videos have not been confirmed, but there are many people anxiously awaiting their arrival.
