Recent events have unfortunately highlighted our family's need for total independence and control of any private to help solve the murder. We can't take offers of help from third parties as even with steps put in place meant to us, we still find our family being used for political motives.
Josh Uretsky, Sanders' national data director, is the staffer who was fired. A Sanders spokesperson called Uretsky's behavior "unacceptable," but Uretsky explained that he was trying to determine the nature of the breach rather than attempting to gain an unfair advantage. "We knew there was a security breach in the data, and we were just trying to understand it and what was happening," Uretsky told CNN.
Jonathan Rich, the cousin of slain Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich, is speaking out — and he does not believe that the murder was a botched robbery as the DC police and media claim.
“First thing I said when my Dad told me was he knew something and he was murdered. The rest of the family thought I was nuts. See last name,” Jonathan tweeted.
He was promptly told not to comment by Andy Rich, and the tweet was deleted.
“This is not the place & not a topic for you to comment on. I love you but filter bro. #family,” Andy Rich tweeted in response.
Jonathan also responded to a tweet from James Woods on May 16, where he asked: “When will the #Russia gag start to wear thin? We are so over this baseless whining. Aren’t the #ToddlerTantrums wearing the #lefties out?”
“Maybe tomorrow when the #SethRich story hits Fox News,” Jonathan responded.
“He was my cousin we agreed on nothing, but he was a great kid who absolutely did not deserve this. #waste,” he tweeted at the Democratic Party’s Twitter account with the journalist tagged. It is unclear if he was responding to something that Anderson had retweeted, or if he had deliberately tagged her.
On November 2, Jonathan responded to a tweet linking to a podcast that asked, “Why do people close to Hillary & Bill Clinton tend to end up dead in weird ways?”
“like my cousin.” Jonathan responded.
“Whistleblowers go to significant efforts to get us material and often very significant risks. As a 27-year-old, works for the DNC, was shot in the back, murdered just a few weeks ago for unknown reasons as he was walking down the street in Washington,” Assange said.
The interviewer followed up by asking, “That was just a robbery, I believe. Wasn’t it?”
Assange cryptically replied, “No, there’s no finding ... I’m suggesting that our sources take risks.”
