Some of what Rich's family said..

"As we’ve seen through the past year of unsubstantiated claims, we see no facts, we have seen no evidence, we have been approached with no emails and only learned about this when contacted by the press,” the Rich family statement said. It continued:

“Even if tomorrow, an email was found, it is not a high enough bar of evidence to prove any interactions as emails can be altered and we’ve seen that those interested in pushing conspiracies will stop at nothing to do so. We are a family who is committed to facts, not fake evidence that surfaces every few months to fill the void and distract law enforcement and the general public from finding Seth’s murderers. The services of the private investigator who spoke to press was offered to the Rich family and paid for by a third party, and contractually was barred from speaking to press or anyone outside of law enforcement or the family unless explicitly authorized by the family."




Going back to the 'family statement,' again....I can't help but notice that all of the bolded above should properly be stated as "us," not "the family."

The statement reads like the family has a handler who is helping craft their statements.

If this is legit, it pretty much kills the Russian hacking portion of the leftist narrative. Oh, they'll still drone on about influence peddling, but it will be an intrinsically toothless debate.


If true maybe the democrats will now claim that Seth was a Russian operative and working with the Trump campaign?

Yeah that could work.

Could easily explain the termination of Comey from the FBI. He or his underlings we likely the ones who gave the stand down order. The plot thickens.

I saw the statement from the family. He's an alarmist for sure. However, most of the links presented as "proof" he's a "hack" are opinion pieces, not all of which lack merit. Nothing has been presented showing he's wrong here. DCPD or the FBI could probably prove him wrong, but according to Fox DCPD won't answer any questions about it. Wikileaks suggested Rich was the leaker, this PI says Rich was the leaker, and Fox reports an anonymous federal investigator confirmed it. I don't trust anonymous sources by themselves, but altogether it's sounding more and more like DNC wasn't hacked. That's all I said. I'm not pushing anything about Clinton.

Nothing has been presented showing he is RIGHT either.

Do some research on Rod Wheeler. He's a political hitman, who's contracted to stir things up.

If him and an anonymous source from Fox news are the only evidence, then there isn't any evidence.

The family even calls BS.

This has all the watermarks of a psy-op. I wouldn't be surprised if Rod Wheeler had a gigantic transfer into his bitcoin wallet recently.


As I pointed out, they aren't the only sources.

It would also explain why the DNC didn't want the FBI examining their servers. The "Russia hacked us" narrative was much more beneficial than "one of our staffers thought what we were doing was immoral and exposed us" narrative. The FBI could've confirmed their story if they allowed the servers to be examined. What cause would they have to not allow it? Instead they paid a private company to "analyze" it, and we all know what happens when you do that. Makes more sense now.

Sounds to me like they're just being formal in that part of the statement. Claiming a handler from that is a reach.

Nope. Not a stretch. I thought I had recalled seeing a handler associated with the family before...from august 2016:



Brad Bauman, a consultant who reached out Wednesday to The Washington Times on as a spokesman for the Rich family, said they hope the additional attention could help investigators.

“That said, some are attempting to politicize this horrible tragedy, and in their attempts to do so, are actually causing more harm that good and impeding on the ability for law enforcement to properly do their job,” Mr. Bauman said. “For the sake of finding Seth’s killer, and for the sake of giving the family the space they need at this terrible time, they are asking for the public to refrain from pushing unproven and harmful theories about Seth’s murder.”

The most important words in that entire article are the first five..

"A WikiLeaks figure is claiming.."

A family that's being hounded by the press and people online after a family member was killed, deciding to use a spokesman because they don't want to deal with the obnoxious press and online trolls, is the same as having a "handler"?

The most important sentence in that post is the first one. You may not like them but the number of sources keeps increasing, and only one is anonymous. A lot better than the garbage WaPo reported yesterday.

Yes.

He's deeply tied to the DNC and progressives. He's a handler in the sense that I meant the word.

Why on earth would the family need a Democratic/Progressive political consultant to handle press statements about their son's murder by *cough* attempted robbery?

Yeah. I think it's interesting and I am sure others might find it interesting, too.

The famous Stand Down order? Imaging that!
Everyone involved should be charged with Murder! For this and all the others they are suspected of.

Still, it's someone claiming..

And he says nothing about Seth Rich.

From the way people are talking in this thread I wrongly assumed there was some type of evidence.

Exactly - a DNC handler to make statements for them FFS.
Getting more obvious by the hour where the huge story is...

Does it not seem strange that every time there is a new major screw up at the white house, there's instantly a shady counter-story with zero evidence promoted by right wing media?

No, but you are on to something. There does some to be a big anti-Trump story with ZERO evidence to cover up DNC scandals. This is too big to cover up though - they murdered a man.

Or vice versa. I think the two parties are in collusion so I am not the person to be asking if you are looking for a partisan response.
