The Seth Rich story is a real story about a young man who was murdered in a seedy part of town in the middle of the night. He had just left Lou’s Bar when he was shot in what might have been a robbery. Investigative reporter Seymour Hersh says Rich was killed by local kids living on the street trying to rob him.
Rich worked for the DNC, was about to take a position at Hillary Clinton’s headquarters, and the case has been kept hush-hush without explanation. Julian Assange of Wikileaks offered a hefty reward for information leading to the capture of his killer(s).
Seymour Hersh claims in a recently leaked audio that Rich was leaking to Wikileaks. He also says the former director of the CIA John Brennan came up with the fake Russiagate story. Last December, Rep. Peter King blamed John Brennan for the Russiagate leaks and insisted he needed to be investigated.
Big league Politics released the audio interview with Seymour Hersh and an anonymous source
Hersh claims he knows what was in the FBI report about Seth Rich’s death. According to him, Seth Rich contacted Wikileaks to give them the DNC emails.
Hersh claims that Rich was not murdered for what he knew but he leaked for money which doesn’t fit with what we know of Rich’s character and what people have said about him.
Julian Assange did retweet this story.
About the kid, I’ll tell you what I know. What I know comes off an FBI report. Don’t ask me how. You can figure it out, I’ve been around a long time. The kid, just, I don’t think he was murdered, I, I don’t think he was murdered because of what he knew. The kids a nice boy, 27, he was not IT expert, but he learned stuff.
He was a data programmer, but he learned stuff. And so he’s living on one street, someone, in my eyes. He’s living in a rough neighborhood and in the exact where he’d been living, as I’m sure you know, there have been about 8 or 9 or 10 violent robberies, most of them with somebody brandishing a gun and it’s the kids hands. I’m telling you look, I’m sure you know what, his hands are marked up, the cops concluded he fought off the people, tried to run. They shot him twice in the back with a 22 small caliber. And then, they, the kids that did it ran, they got scared, they didn’t take his wallet.
Ok. So what the cops do is this: And this is where nobody knows, what I’m telling you, and maybe you know something about it.
When you have a death like that DC cops, if you’re dead, you don’t just generally go yep I know (unintelligible) you have to get in to the kids apartment and see what you can find. If he’s dead you don’t need a warrant but most cops get a warrant because they don’t know if they’ve guys has, has a, a roommate. You need a warrant.
So they get a warrant. I’m just telling you, there is such a thing. They go in the house and they can’t do much with this computer. It’s (unintelligible) the cops don’t know much about it. So the DC cops they have a cyber unit in DC and they’re more sophisticated.
They come and look at it. The idea is maybe he’s a series of exchanges with somebody who says I’m going to kill you motherfucker over a girl or… and they can’t get in. The cyber guys do a little better but they can’t make sense of it so they call the, they call the FBI cyber unit, the DC unit.
The Washington field office is a hot shit unit. The guy running the Washington field office he’s like, he’s like, you know, he’s like a three star at an army base he’s already looking for four, you know what I mean? He’s gonna go in a top job.
There’s a cyber unit there that’s excellent, given. What you get in a warrant is, the public information you get in a warrant doesn’t include, uh, it does not include the affidavit underlying what, why you are you going in, what the reasons are that.
That’s almost never available, uh, I, I can tell you that the existence of a warrant is a public document 99% of the time. So, uh, on the same warrant, they call in the feds. The feds get through, and this is what they find.
This is according to the FBI report. What they find is he makes cont- first of all this is what you have to know, you have to know some basic facts, one of the basic factors, in that there’s no DNC or Podesta emails that exist beyond May 22nd. May 21st, May 22nd is the last email from either one of those groups.
And so what the reports says is that sometime in late spring, we’re talking June you know summers in June 21st, late spring would be after, I presume, I don’t know, I’d just say late spring, early summer and he makes contact with Wikileaks. That’s in his computer and he makes contact.
Now, I have to be careful because I, I’ve know, I, met Julian 10 or 12 years (ago?) I stay the f*k away from people like that, you know. He’s invited me, and when I’m in London I always get a message “Come see me at the Ecuadorian” but I say f*k no I’m not going there I’ve got enough trouble without getting photographed. And he’s under total surveillance by everybody but anyways. So, they found what he’d done.
He had submitted a series of documents, of emails. Some juicy emails from the DNC, and you know, by the way all this shit about the DNC, uj, you know, whether it was hacked or wasn’t hacked, whatever happened, the democrats themselves wrote this shit, you know what I mean?
All I know is that he (Seth) offered a sample, an extensive sample, you know I’m sure dozens of emails and said “I want money”.
Then later Wikileaks did get the password, he had a Dropbox, a protected Dropbox, which isn’t hard to do. I mean you don’t have to be a wizard IT, you know, he was certainly not a dumb kid. They got access to the Dropbox.
He also, and this is also in the FBI report, he also let people know, with whom he was dealing, and I don’t know how he dealt. I’ll tell you about Wikileaks in a second. I don’t know how he dealt with the Wikileaks and the mechanism but he also, the word was passed according to the NSA report, “I’ve also shared this box with a couple of friends so if anything happens to me it’s not going to solve your problem”. Ok. I don’t know what that means.
I don’t know whether you- Anyways, Wikileaks got access, and before he was killed. I can tell you right now Brennan is an asshole. Uh, I’ve known all these people for years. Clapper is sort of a better guy but not rocket scientist, the NSA guy’s a f*king moron, and they don’t, you know the trouble with all of those guys is that the only way they’re going to make it to a board or two and get hired by [unintelligible] and get some fat cat contracts is if Hillary stayed in.
With Trump they’re gone, they’re done, they’re going to live on their pension, they’re not going to make it. And I gotta tell you guys, they don’t want to live on their pension, they want to be on boards.
I have somebody on the inside, you know I’ve been around a long time, and I write a lot of stuff. I have somebody on the inside who will go and read a file for me. This person is unbelievably accurate and careful, he’s a very high-level guy and he’ll do a favor.
You’re just going to have to trust me. I have what they call in my business a long-form journalism. I have a narrative of how that whole f*king thing began, it’s a Brennan operation, it was an American disinformation and f*king the f*king President, at one point when they, they even started telling the press, they were back briefing the press.
The head of the NSA was going and telling the press, f*ing c*k-s*ker Rogers, was telling the press that we even know who in the GRU, the Russian Military Intelligence Service, who leaked it. I mean all bullsh*t.
They were telling the stupid people I worked at the New York Times for f*king years, and the trouble with the f*king New York Times is they have smart guys, but they’re totally beholden on sources.
If the president or the head of the [unintelligible] to actually believe it. I was actually hired at the time to write, to go after the war in Vietnam War in ’72 because they were just locked in. So that’s what the Times did. These guys run the f*king Times, and Trump’s not wrong.
But I mean I wish he would calm down and had a better a better press secretary, I mean you don’t have to be so. Trump’s not wrong to think they all f*king lie about him.
