For interim Democratic National Committee (DNC) head Donna Brazile has reported that she was worried Seth Rich was either killed for being white or by Russians.
In her book “Hacks,” Brazile wrote:
“I felt some responsibility for Seth Rich’s death. I didn’t bring him into the DNC, but I helped keep him there working on voting rights. With all I knew now about the Russians’ hacking, I could not help but wonder if they had played some part in his unsolved murder. Besides that, racial tensions were high that summer and I worried that he was murdered for being white on the wrong side of town. [My friend] Elaine expressed her doubts about that, and I heard her. The FBI said that they did not see any Russian fingerprints there.”
Brazile revealed that she is haunted by Rich’s murder, even though other members of the DNC have attacked anyone that suggests the murder was anything other than a robbery going wrong.
Seth Rich was killed just days before Wikileaks began publishing emails.
However, Brazile is now reporting that she had a “spook,” with connections within the intelligence community who told her that, after the killing, she needed to protect herself, including cameras, alarms, backup power at her home.
Evidently, Brazile was so concerned with Rich’s death that she used her only phone call from Hillary Clinton after their General Election loss to bring him up. She asked former First Lady to use some of the millions of dollar the campaign had in order to set up a reward fund to find his murderer, but she was hung up on.
Of the incident, Brazile said:
“I knew the campaign had over $3 million set aside in a legal fund. Could she help me get this lawsuit started? And don’t forget the murder of Seth Rich, I told her. Did she want to contribute to Seth’s reward fund? We still hadn’t found the person responsible for the tragic murder of this bright young DNC staffer.
You’re right, she said. We’re going to get to that. But she really had to go. She had made the call and checked it off her list, and I accepted after we said our good-byes that I might never hear from her again.”
