The father of Seth Rich, a DNC staffer who was mysteriously murdered in the early morning hours,, has broken his silence and spoken out about his son.
Police suspect that Seth was murdered during a botched robbery, but the problem with their theory is that none of his belongings were missing. However, in an interview with MailOnline, his father said he still believes the robbery theory, but he also revealed a chilling connection his son had to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.
Western Journalism has more on the development:
“We want to get this solved, that’s the number one thing,” his father said in an interview with Daily Mail.
“We can’t bring Seth back but we can try to make the city safer and take away the person who wanted to go after someone just for a cellphone,” Rich continued.
Rich told Daily Mail that Seth had been active in various levels of politics in House and Senate campaigns, and had always wanted to work on a presidential campaign.
“He had just been asked to join the Clinton campaign — four days before he was murdered,” Rich said. “He was really excited about that.”
Rich’s father said that while he is pleased with any additional reward that could help bring the perpetrator to justice, he believes the rumors circulating about his son’s possible involvement with WikiLeaks are “bizarre.”
“I hope the additional money helps find out who did this,” But, he said, “I don’t want to play WikiLeaks’ game.”
The “game” he’s referring to is Julian Assange, the founder of Wikileaks, offering up a $20,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of Seth’s killer. As we previously reported, Assange all but admitted that Seth was the source of the email leak at the DNC, which is what’s driving the conspiracy that he was murdered for exposing the corrupt party practices.
Considering police have yet to make any headway in Seth’s murder investigation, the latest revelation regarding his connections to the Clinton campaign are likely to fuel the conspiracy theories even further.
What do you think? Was Seth murdered for his involvement in the leaks, or was it a robbery gone wrong?
