Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich is demanding an official investigation into the murder of Seth Rich, the DNC staffer who blew the whistle on election fraud within the party.
Seth was shot near his home in Washington DC last month in very suspicious circumstances, and as yet the killer has not been found. His death followed his public revelation that the Democratic National Committee had committed election fraud during this years Democratic primaries in order to ensure a Hillary Clinton victory.
Rich was gunned down in Washington DC last month in unexplained circumstances, with his killer not taking any of Rich’s possessions or money.
During a television interview earlier this week, Wikileaks’ Assange implied that Rich could be one of the sources of the DNC email leak that embarrassed Hillary Clinton. Other mysterious deaths have also been connected to the leak.
Wikileaks has offered a $20,000 reward for information leading to the conviction of Rich’s killer.
Appearing on the Mike Gallagher show, Gingrich dismissed claims by the media that the entire story was just a conspiracy theory, asserting that it was “worth talking about” and that if “Assange says he is the source, Assange may know.”
“If someone is gunned down in our national capital, we ought to have a pretty passionate interest in knowing why,” said Gingrich. “And if it clearly wasn’t a mugging and it wasn’t for money, what was it for?”
Gingrich then referenced two thrillers he had written about terrorism and the presidential campaign, before adding, “We have these kind of scenes in there where you begin to realize that there are dangerous things going on in the world.”
“There are so many different points of sickening corruption between Bill, the foundation, the secretary of state’s office, the emails. There’s so much of it you can’t get it straight,” he continued.
As we highlighted yesterday, after initially calling on people to help them find his murderer, Rich’s family have now hired Brad Bauman, a public relations manager who specializes in “crisis communications” for the Democratic Party. Bauman’s primary concern seems to be silencing suspicions over Rich’s murder.
Last night, a prominent source close to the Democratic Party told me I was “on the money” with my reporting on the issue. He doesn’t want to be named for obvious reasons.
