During a Presidential Campaign and a first year in office rocked by a blizzard of scurrilous claims on all sides, the Seth Rich murder had seemingly become another sad footnote of this era. It’s becoming increasingly clear, however that this case is the lynchpin of something much bigger. The integrity of the US Government rests on a fair investigation of the Seth Rich murder. If the DNC emails were leaked by Seth and if he was murdered for what he knew and did, “Russian Hacking” becomes moot and the Mueller Investigation is revealed as an attempted coup. May 2017 was a watershed month. This was when the Mueller Investigation was launched. May 2017 was also the month, nearly a year after DNC staffer Seth Rich ’s murder, when Private Detective and former Fox News Reporter Rod Wheeler and tech tycoon Kim Dotcom each declared they had solid evidence that Seth Rich was the DNC leaker. May 2017 was also when Brad Bauman , Democrat crisis manager hired as a spokesman by Seth Rich ’s family emerged as an attack dog against anybody’s claims of Seth having provided the DNC emails to WikiLeaks . Bauman went ballistic on Twitter, fulminating about the innocence of Seth Rich and about how the bereaved must be spared all such “conspiracy theories”. Bauman then had several high profile articles published and TV segments produced by top Mainstream Media outlets, which angrily warned everyone to back off. Each of these PR pieces seethed with a hostility that was suspiciously inappropriate for a grieving family wanting answers about their son’s murder. Plus, they seemed improperly focused on Seth’s innocence of any “hacking” (sic). If one interprets these antics as deflecting exposure of DNC crimes and considers the enormous stakes involved, this belligerence makes much more sense and Rod Wheeler ’s sudden retraction and lawsuit against Fox also make much more sense. That the investigation into the murder had ceased caused many to suspect that the family had been threatened, bribed or both, considering the infinitely deep pockets and Arkancidal tendencies of those involved. So it was a surprise to see a report on March 1st, 2018 in the Washington Times , when it was thought that the trail had long since gone cold, that Fox News Commentator, Ed Butowsky told the Gateway Pundit that he’d spoken to Seth’s father, Joel during the afternoon of December 17, 2016 who confirmed to Butowsky that, “We know what our sons did, but we just want to find Seth’s killer.” Sons, plural. Another reason to publicly maintain innocence of any hacking/leaking, as brother Aaron is still alive and could be subject to both legal and illegal reprisals from the DNC . Butowsky also shared that the family vehemently did not want Seth to be remembered for helping Donald Trump to get elected. Reporters attempting to confirm Butowsky’s statements, however were met with denials by the Rich family. This report from Black Pilled has more.
