“There are dangerous things going on”
Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich is demanding to know the motive behind the murder of Seth Rich, the DNC staffer who Julian Assange suggested could be the source of the DNC email leak.
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 Thursday, 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.
Thursday 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.
