( The Gateway Pundit ) On Monday The Gateway Pundit announced that a witness was going to step forward to identify his killers.
After reviewing the information from the press conference we cannot support these claims revealed today
The witness alleges slain DNC staffer Seth Rich was killed by two government employees, who worked as Rod Rosenstein’s “dirty squad” when he was U.S. attorney for Maryland,
for breaching the Democratic National Committee server in 2016.
The witness, who called into a press conference using the alias ‘Luke,’ Tuesday, claimed Rich was murdered by three men that are his colleagues and friend, an AFT agent, a DEA agent and a former government employee.
He only learned of Seth Rich, he alleged, because the government agents were “bragging” they got away with killing him on a number occasions.
“The people involved in his death – I know them well, personally and professionally,” he told a room full of reporters on speaker phone at the Holiday Inn in Rosslyn, Virginia Tuesday.
“I do not know Seth Rich, never met him. Didn’t know the name until late 2016 when these people were bragging about what they’ve done and how they’ve gotten away with everything. This was through multiple conversations held with other people in front of me or in front of me and people I know,”
“I did some research and found out what they were talking about through my channels. They had details about what happened that night, leading up to it, the actual act, and occurred right after it and why,” he continued. “Whether or not he gave anything to WikiLeaks I have no idea. But going into the system, what they had control of set off everything. When he grabbed that many, they assumed it was for investigation.”
The witness explicitly detailed what how his colleagues allegedly murdered Rich after surveilling him for weeks.
“There were three involved that night. Two were waiting near his home. They had been watching him for a week or week and half to two weeks prior to this. They were waiting for hours. It was getting late – DC wakes up early. He was gone so long, they thought this would be sometime in the night,” he said. “They got the call, he was heading home. They went from being half asleep, to up on adrenaline.”
“They approached him from behind. The normal stop – ‘get on our knees, cross your ankles, hands behind your head.’ They couldn’t identify him, they wanted to make sure they had the right person. One came on him from behind, the other approached his right side. They had to get almost even with him because his arms were behind his head.” he continued. “They looked at him. They shot him in the ribs. He crawled to his left, he tried to scramble away – they ridiculed him in a sexual manner [about’ ‘getting on his knees and dying on his knees.’ He went forward, they shot him again.”
After shooting him, the alleged killers rolled him over, took the thumb drive and left.
All press should attend my press conference TUESDAY at 1:00PM at the HOLIDAY INN Rosslyn Key Bridge. We will present a witness who brings us close to resolution in the Seth Rich case.
- Republican lawyer Jack Burkman is urging Robert Mueller to use his newly impaneled grand jury to investigate the Rich murder
- Seth Rich angrily “presented with a lot of emails Natalia Veselnitskaya, the Kremlin-affiliated lawyer whom Donald Trump Jr. hosted at Trump Tower on June 9 of that year ” that were subsequently published by WikiLeaks on July 22, just days before Rich was murdered
- Burkman: Rich’s murder “may be the ‘missing link’ that connects otherwise incongruent events relating to Russia collusion in the 2016 presidential election.”
I say, don’t count on it! Mueller won’t sabotage his witch hunt investigation – already full of unlawful acts.
A Republican lawyer and lobbyist wants Mueller to add another matter to his docket: the 2016 murder of Seth Rich, a 27-year-old employee of the Democratic National Committee. Rich was shot twice in the back as he walked home late at night from a bar in the Washington neighborhood of Bloomingdale. None of his possessions were taken, which has made some skeptical of official claims that the killing—which remains unsolved—was a robbery gone awry. Among those skeptics is Fox News host Sean Hannity, who has hinted Rich may have been killed by Democratic operatives for leaking DNC emails that cast the Democratic establishment, which heavily favored Hillary Clinton over Bernie Sanders in the presidential primary, in an unflattering light.
“We’ve ruled out that this a street crime,” says Jack Burkman, the Republican operative who is urging Mueller to use his newly impaneled grand jury to investigate the Rich murder. In his letter to the special counsel, which was sent on Tuesday, Burkman argues that Rich’s murder “may be the ‘missing link’ that connects otherwise incongruent events relating to Russia collusion in the 2016 presidential election.” Burkman says in the letter that he is “willing to testify under oath” and “will share what we know” about the Rich murder.
And what does he know, exactly? Burkman says that in January, a former U.S. intelligence agent who’d worked in the Middle East “heard from credible sources” that Rich, who was working on voter outreach for the DNC, discovered evidence of Russian hacking. Burkman also says that about a month ago, a source at the DNC told him that in the early summer of 2016, Rich met with Natalia Veselnitskaya, the Kremlin-affiliated lawyer whom Donald Trump Jr. hosted at Trump Tower on June 9 of that year. Burkman believes that Rich angrily “presented her with a lot of emails” that were subsequently published by WikiLeaks on July 22, just days before Rich was murdered.
“We have other leads,” Burkman tells Newsweek, declining to elaborate. He is, however, “fairly certain there’s a Russia connection.” He could say little more than that, not even if Rich—depicted by some as a disenchanted Sanders supporter upset by the DNC’s staunch pro-Clinton stance—was collaborating with Russian agents or attempting to thwart them. “I am not entirely sure if Seth was a good guy or a bad guy,” Burkman says, without explaining what nefarious intentions the young man might have had.
