“My investigation up to this point shows there was some degree of email exchange between Seth Rich and WikiLeaks.” ~ Rod Wheeler, former DC homicide investigator
Fox News is reporting that DNC staffer Seth Rich, who was shot execution style last year, is said to have been in contact with Wikileaks at the time of the DNC leaks, according to multiple sources – all unnamed. A federal investigator told Fox reporter Rod Wheeler that Rich transferred tens of thousands of DNC emails to Wikileaks.
The federal investigator, who requested anonymity, said 44,053 emails and 17,761 attachments between Democratic National Committee leaders, spanning from January 2015 through late May 2016, were transferred from Rich to MacFadyen before May 21, Fox reported.
Seth Rich is the DNC staffer who was murdered under strange circumstances. He was shot in the back but not robbed. MacFadyen was a Wikileaks Director who is now deceased.
Julian Assange retweeted the Fox story, essentially suggesting Seth Rich was indeed a source of the leaks.

Also last year, Wikileaks offered a $20,000 reward for information leading to the killer or killers of Seth Rich. Assange has repeatedly said the Russians were not the source of the leaks.
The frothing media is remarkably uninterested in this story but will run with any gossip that harms the Trump administration. However, Jake Tapper did say after this article was published that he would ask about it at the presser.
Fox News reported:
The Democratic National Committee staffer who was gunned down on July 10 on a Washington, D.C., street just steps from his home had leaked thousands of internal emails to WikiLeaks, law enforcement sources told Fox News.
A federal investigator who reviewed an FBI forensic report detailing the contents of DNC staffer Seth Rich’s computer generated within 96 hours after his murder, said Rich made contact with WikiLeaks through Gavin MacFadyen, a now-deceased American investigative reporter, documentary filmmaker, and director of WikiLeaks who was living in London at the time.
The federal investigator told Fox News:
“I have seen and read the emails between Seth Rich and Wikileaks,” the federal investigator told Fox News, confirming the MacFadyen connection. He said the emails are in possession of the FBI, while the stalled case is in the hands of the Washington Police Department.
This is consistent with reporter Rod Wheeler’s investigation according to the report:
“My investigation up to this point shows there was some degree of email exchange between Seth Rich and Wikileaks,” Wheeler said. “I do believe that the answers to who murdered Seth Rich sits on his computer on a shelf at the DC police or FBI headquarters.”
The media was quick to blame the Russians but they have zero interest in this case.
Remember this from the Wikileaks dump of Podesta emails?
