Did Wash Post Publish Dubious Russia Story to Distract From Seth Rich Bombshell?
The Washington Post published its dubious story on President Trump leaking classified information to the Russians less than an hour after the bombshell news broke that murdered DNC staffer Seth Rich was in contact with Wikileaks and that DC Police were ordered to cover it up.
The coincidental timing has led many Trump supporters to accuse the Post of publishing their story in an attempt to distract the rest of the media from focusing on the massive new revelations in the Seth Rich case.
The Washington Post story was published around 57 minutes after the Seth Rich story broke.
Rich was murdered in an upscale area of Washington DC on July 10 last year but the killer or killers did not steal anything from the victim, rendering the police’s explanation that the incident was a robbery gone wrong doubtful.
Infowars reported on the questions surrounding Seth Rich’s murder multiple times back in August last year, including how there was around an hour and a half of “unaccounted for” time between Rich leaving a bar and being killed.
Brad Bauman, a crisis communications manager for the Democratic Party, was hired by RIch’s family to act as their spokesman.
Bauman’s first action was to insist that people stop questioning the unsolved circumstances behind Rich’s murder.
Speculation later raged as to whether Rich was trying to get in contact with the FBI to speak to agents about an “ongoing court case” involving the Clintons.
During a subsequent television interview in August, Wikileaks Julian Assange appeared to confirm that Rich was the source for the DNC leak, dismantling the claim that Russia was responsible for the leak.
Rod Wheeler, a private investigator hired by the Rich family, has now confirmed that Rich’s laptop contains evidence proving that he was in contact with WIkileaks before his death and that DC Police were ordered to cover it up.
“I have a source inside the police department that has looked at me straight in the eye and said, ‘Rod, we were told to stand down on this case and I can’t share any information with you.’ Now, that is highly unusual for a murder investigation, especially from a police department,” said Wheeler.
“The police department nor the FBI have been forthcoming,” said Wheeler. “They haven’t been cooperating at all. I believe that the answer to solving his death lies on that computer, which I believe is either at the police department or either at the FBI. I have been told both,” he added.
The true narrative behind Seth Rich’s murder is potentially devastating for Democrats because it would virtually disprove their entire narrative that Russia “hacked” the US presidential election by colluding with Wikileaks and the Trump administration.
It would also raise questions as to whether Seth Rich was murdered in retribution for the DNC leak and to prevent him leaking any further information.
Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta, whose email hack was also blamed on the Russians with no evidence, once wrote an email on the subject of leaks negatively affecting Hillary Clinton, stating, “I’m definitely for making an example of a suspected leaker whether or not we have any real basis for it.”
There is no evidence that Podesta or anyone on the Clinton campaign was involved in Rich’s murder, but that email is doing the rounds once again the aftermath of the huge new revelations about the case.
