After almost two years of investigation, is the mystery of Seth Rich’s death finally about to unravel?
During the 2016 presidential election, which was surrounded by strange events on its own, a young man named Seth Rich had his life cut short in Washington D.C. Police suggested that Rich, who was shot twice in the back and left to die, had been the victim of robberies that plagued the area where he died. No personal items were missing from his body. Therefore, many people believed that he had been killed as part of a political vendetta, and that he may well have been the person who leaked the contents of the Democrat National Committee servers to WikiLeaks.
Jack Burkman, a Washington-based lobbyist and attorney, has been on the hunt for the ‘truth’ behind the incident for the last two years. Now, he says that he has a credible witness who will be able to reveal the two men who killed Rich, according to a recent interview. Perhaps most interesting of all, the witness allegedly claimed that one of the killers is currently an agent with the Drug Enforcement Administration, while the other currently works for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives. This is a huge discovery, if true!
If this witness exists, and if he can provide credible information about who took the young staffer’s life, this could be the beginning of the end of one of the strangest mysteries surrounding the 2016 election season.
The witness “fears for his life,” as anyone who had seen such a thing committed by two alleged federal agents would.
He will be protected by armed bodyguards and disguised as he is moved to the press conference, where this witness will uncover who he saw kill the young employee of the Democrat National Committee.
The conference will be held on Tuesday at 1 p.m. local time at the Holiday Inn near Rosslyn Key Bridge.
According to Burkman, the witness was not found by himself, but rather by one of the teams of investigators he hired to help him look into the case.
Burkman said that he believes that this latest resolution will allow the case to come to a successful conclusion within the next three or four weeks.
He also said that what the witness said about the killing he observed matches with what Burkman was able to discover from the surveillance videos in the area, which clearly identified two men by their pant legs.
Rich, who died at the tender age of 27, was a DNC worker. He worked as the voter expansion data director for two years, and had recently accepted a position with the Clinton campaign before his death.
On July 10, 2016, he was near his apartment in an upscale neighborhood when he was shot twice in the back with a handgun. Metropolitan Police suggested that it was a botched robbery, but Rich was not robbed of any piece of property.
Multiple private investigators have suggested there was evidence that it was Mr. Rich himself who handed over the bombshell emails from the DNC that made news in Summer of 2016, including the emails that showed how the political party was seeking to handicap Bernie Sanders in order to show favoritism toward Hillary Clinton.
However, the story gets stranger still.
In March 2018, Burkman was shot and run over by a former U.S. Marine, Kevin Doherty, who he had hired to help investigate the death.
Incidentally, Doherty has also claimed that he worked as a special agent and criminal investigator in the intelligence community.
After the press conference, Burkman plans to lead a procession down to the spot where Seth Rich was slain.
Currently, he is offering $130,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the killer, while WikiLeaks is offering $20,000, the One America News Network is offering $100,000, D.C. Metropolitan Police are offering $25,000, and Martin Shkreli is offering $100,000.
Anyone interested could possibly make as much as $345,000 if they came forward with information that would lead to an arrest.
Interestingly, the DNC didn’t really seem interested in getting to the bottom of the case. They accepted the ‘botched robbery’ (although there was no robbery to speak of) narrative, and rather than offer money to find the killer, they simply honored his memory by dedicating the bike rack outside their headquarters to their slain employee.
It will be interesting to see if this individual will be able to shed light on the death of Seth Rich or not. At this point, not only do his parents deserve answers; the American people do as well.
Perhaps it could even reveal that some political figure had him killed because he dared to blow the whistle on the DNC’s inappropriate conduct.
