As conspiracy theories swirled around the murder of Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich, lobbyist Jack Burkman took the unusual step of launching his own private investigation. A man with military and security experience stepped up to help. Now Burkman alleges that man, Kevin Doherty, nearly killed him. Burkman, a conservative lobbyist who has also raised money for Rick Gates, a former Trump campaign official who pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI, and protested gay athletes in the NFL, is used to controversy.

Should we just let this case go, then? Since the police couldn't solve the crime and/or find the killers...
I wonder why you guys don't want this to be followed. Are they spending tax payers on the investigation?
Or is it just the dirty being uncovered?

Exactly. Someone who had been originally hired to help, wound up trying to kill him. It proves nothing, but is very peculiar and interesting. IIRC the person in question contacted Burkman about the job and then tried to take over the investigation from Burkman. After that he tried to kill Burkman. There are other plausible explanations, but it's quite odd.
Burkman has also offered an additional $100,000 in reward money, adding to the $25,000 reward offered by the DC Metropolitan Police Department, $20,000 offered by WikiLeaks, and additional $20,000 reward pledged by popular author Mike Cernovich through the journalism crowdfunding platform WeSearchr. In total, there is over $165,000 in reward money — but still, no suspects have been named.
