In July 2016, Seth Rich a member of the Democratic National Committee was murdered. The murder is still unsolved. However, it is strongly believed that Rich was the one that provided the DNC’s emails to Wikileaks.
If that is true, if Rich did provide the emails to Wikileaks, the strongest motivation to kill Rich are those emails. The leaked emails damaged the DNC during the 2016 election, significantly. Who was hurt most by that? The Clintons, Bill & Hillary Clinton received the brunt of the blow back from the release of the confidential emails. This means that the Clintons are suspects.
Or should be. But they aren’t because of the corruption within the FBI. It provides more proof that the FBI is in fact out to get President Trump and that the FBI is willing to go out of their way to ignore evidence that might implicate the clinton family in something as serious as murder. This proves the Clintons and the FBI are dirty. The murder was dismissed as a mugging even though nothing was stolen from Rich.
This is how most modern conspiracy theories get started. Someone makes a leap of logic and ta-da! For the record, Seth Hill really was murdered. Evidence suggests he fought with his attackers before being shot twice in the back. It also ignores two very critical pieces of information… One crime and muggings in Bloomingdale where Rich lived just outside of DC had seen a huge spike in crime in early 2016, including robberies, armed robberies, and muggings. Rich was out at 4 in the morning, returning from a bar. He was bruised as well as bloodied by the time he was shot twice in the back. We are pretty certain that the release of the DNC emails to Wikileaks was Russia not Seth Rich. Russian hackers have actually done it before on multiple occasions, hacked confidential emails and turned them over to Wikileaks.
Here’s another crime stat for you, the majority of muggings gone wrong do end when the victim begins to fight back. And a lot of times the victim is gravely injured. However, muggers as a whole are mostly just panicky. This means when someone fights back, their fight or flight instinct kicks into overdrive and they mostly want to get away, even if that requires them to shoot their victim. And during the panic, rarely do the muggers take anything.
Don’t fight with a mugger, just give them your stuff and go on with your life. Because it is easier to catch a mugger trying to pawn your stuff than a mugger turned murderer, because stranger killings are really, really difficult to solve.
However, it is easy to see the birth of a conspiracy theory here. This is a real conspiracy theory centered around real events that has had evidence changed or ignored to fit the theory. If you know anything about the murder of Seth Rich there is a reward. Also, when dealing with what looks and sounds like a conspiracy theory, check all the facts. The first version of this I heard included surveillance video capturing two people following Rich. It turned out the video only caught parts of their lower legs and they may or may not being following Rich… Most likely, this is exactly what it looks like, those legs probably belong to two men, although in the video even that couldn’t be discerned, and this probably really was a mugging that went wrong. Rich being shot in the back actually strengthens the mugging gone wrong theory. In a mugging, with 2 people, one probably would have stood behind him with a gun while the other attempted to take his stuff. If Rich had begun to fight back, thereby creating the bruises on his knuckles, the man in back would have panicked and fired two shots into Rich’s back.
It is a sad and tragic loss of life, but it probably isn’t part of an FBI cover up to help the Clintons or put into place more FBI agents sympathetic to President Trump (I’m not even sure how that part of the theory fits in with this).
