Seth Rich’s murder got political when “conspiracy theories” took life on social media. It’s been nearly two years now, and one question remains unanswered; who killed Seth Rich?
Seth was a 27-year-old digital campaigner with the Democratic Party and lived in the Bloomingdale area of Washington D.C.
On July 10, 2016, in the early morning hours, Seth Rich was making his way home from a night out in D.C. Seth was talking on the phone with his girlfriend while walking home from a bar. At around 4 a.m. he told her he was almost there and had to go. Seconds later, gunshots rang out. Seth was found lying on the ground a block from his apartment with two bullet holes in his back. He was taken to a hospital, where he died a little more than an hour later.
Seth’s watch, wallet, and phone were found on him. There were signs of a struggle.
The Police called Seth's murder a street robbery gone wrong. What? It was 4 a.m., and he was shot in cold blood. His wallet, watch and phone were not taken. Those items could have easily been grabbed. He was shot in the back. If someone walked up and shot him twice In the back, why would they just run without robbing him? This doesn’t make any sense.
Weeks after Seth’s death, Wikileaks published 20,000 emails obtained from Democratic National Committee computers via an anonymous source.
Some wondered if that source was, in fact, Seth himself.
Roger Stone, a right-wing political operative, expressed his belief that Seth was murdered for having blown the whistle on the DNC by leaking explosive documents to Wikileaks.
This theory took root when Wikileaks founder Julian Assange appeared on Dutch TV strongly implying that Seth was the whistleblower behind the email leak.

Wikileaks posted a tweet offering a cash reward for anyone who could help solve Seth’s murder. To many who wanted answers, this was confirmation that Seth Rich had been their source.
To this day no one knows who leaked the information. Assange has neither confirmed nor denied that it was Seth. Left-wing radicals say this is nothing more than conspiracy theories. What do you think? Was it cold-blooded murder?

The Democratic Party filed a multimillion-dollar federal lawsuit against Trump campaign officials, the Russian government, and WikiLeaks alleging a widespread conspiracy to tilt the 2016 election in Donald Trump's favor.

Perhaps this is their way of “wagging the dog." Maybe we can finally get some answers to what happened to Seth Rich. Their lawsuit just may backfire on them and be their undoing.

Keep shedding light on the dirty deeds of the deep state crooks that inhabit this government. The more light they see the more they have to shy away. Give them hell girl.
This is Great! it is not provable that Seth Rich snuck removable USB media out of the data center. Stay on this story!
Seth Rich case is suspicious. Organized criminals send messages with their hits. Hopefully, we will know more soon. Nice article , Lexy
Terrific article explaining the mysterious Seth Rich murder. But, until hard evidence arises that Seth was truly the source of the leaks, linking his death to Dems is just speculation.
Thank you for shedding light on this cold blooded murder….not robbery. I know that Sean Hannity tried, but was silenced. This may be the only platform we have to get justice for Seth.
Extremely well done. It's about time we stopped the political nonsense and solved real crimes.
I appreciated this article. Seth Rich should have justice. Thank you Lexy, please keep writing. We need to be kept informed
Nice job keeping the facts in the light Lexy. I predict they drop this frivolous law suit in the coming weeks or months to "try" to prevent us from knowing all truths. They just needed more smoke to cover all they're doing behind the scenes. But I just don't see how this can keep being hidden. There is just too much that actually "adds" up.
I hadn't thought of the possibility that the recent court filing by DNC against the Trump campaign could backfire into opening up their own skeletons on their server. I would definitely like to know the truth as to what happened to Seth. Thanks for the article.
Nice work Lexy…. way to try and wake up more people to the #SethRich murder committed by The DNC as punishment for leaking the DNC dirty laundry…. @RealMattCouch on Twitter is leading the fight in the current investigation..
I think its interesting that media personalities WW, like the Dutch TV interviewer, still get irritated when it is suggested that the SR murder wasnt a botched robbery.
Great article Lexy. We need to continue shining a light on Seth's death, until his murderers are identified and brought to justice.
The Goldwater: "Perhaps this is their way of “wagging the dog." Maybe we can finally get some answers to what happened to Seth Rich. Their lawsuit just may backfire on them and be their undoing."
Yep. i can't help thinking of the phrase 'hoist on their own petard' when speculating on the outcome of the DNC lawsuit
