( 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.
- The witness, who “fears for his life,” will be accompanied by armed guards and disguise his identity as he details how two employees of the United States government killed Seth in a press conference slated for Tuesday.
- “We found him through working with a retired New York City detective, who found him and brought him to us. We have thoroughly vetted this witness and we believe in this witness,” — Frank Whalen, a retired NYPD Detective Sergeant NYPD who served as the head of NYPD Homicide for 23 years, found the witness, Burkman explained.
( Gateway Pundit) Jack Burkman, a Washington-based attorney and lobbyist who has worked with a private investigative team to solve the Seth Rich murder mystery, told The Gateway Pundit that the witness has conclusive evidence that will bring Rich’s killers to justice within a month.
“We believe that we have reached the beginning of the end of the Seth Rich murder investigation,” Burkman told The Gateway Pundit in an exclusive interview Sunday. “After two long hard years of work, we have a witness who is prepared to identify the two killers of Seth Rich. One is reportedly a current DEA (Drug Enforcement Administration) agent, the other is reportedly a current ATF (Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives) agent”

“We found him through working with a retired New York City detective, who found him and brought him to us. We have thoroughly vetted this witness and we believe in this witness,” he said. “He has evidence that substantiates his claims but it will be revealed slowly. This witness is in great fear of his life – that’s why we are going with disguising him, disguising his voice and everything about him.”
Burkman, who has viewed surveillance footage from the night Rich was killed, says the witness’ testimony confirms two men involved in the shooting.
Gateway Pundit exclusive:
Insider Ed Butowsky: Seth Rich’s Father Confirmed His Son Was the Wikileaks Leaker
Ed Butowsky, the man who offered to assist the family of Seth Rich with the cost of hiring a private investigator, has told the Gateway Pundit that during a December 2016 conversation with the father of the slain staffer he confirmed that he “knew what his sons did.”
Butowsky further stated that the family was deeply concerned with their son being remembered for helping to get President Donald Trump elected.
Speaking to Butowsky by phone on Thursday evening, he told the Gateway Pundit that during a conversation with Joel Rich on December 17, 2016 at 3:17 p.m., the father stated “we know what our sons did, but we just want to find Seth’s killer.”
“They know — we all know,” Butowksy said.
Donna Brazile was haunted by DNC data staffer Seth Rich’s murder that she used her brief, only phone call from Hillary Clinton after the election loss to bring him up . Rich was killed days before Wikileaks began publishing its emails.
Brazile says she had a “spook” when she was told by the intelligence community that she needed protection for herself, including cameras, alarms and backup power at her house, and that she heeded his advice.
Daily Caller reports:
Brazile was so concerned with Rich’s death that she used her brief, only phone call from Hillary Clinton after the election loss to bring him up. She asked Clinton to use some of the millions of dollars the campaign had in order to set up a reward fund to find his murderer. But Hillary said she “really had to go.”
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.
Donna Brazile: “They Don’t Know What It’s Like to Bury a Child. I did – Seth Rich.”
Donna Brazile went on ABC’s This Week on Sunday morning to discuss her new snitch book on Hillary Clinton.
During her interview with George Stephanopoulos Donna Brazile dropped this bomb:
“Why am I supposed to be the only person who unable to tell my story? I’ve heard a lot of people tell me various things as well. But here’s what they don’t know. They don’t know what it was like to be over the DNC during this hacking. They don’t know what it’s like to bury a child. I did, Seth Rich.“
Writes Philip Rucker of the Washington Post:
- Brazile writes that she was haunted by the still-unsolved murder of DNC data staffer Seth Rich and feared for her own life, shutting the blinds to her office window so snipers could not see her and installing surveillance cameras at her home.
- Brazile seriously contemplated setting in motion a process to replace Hillary Clinton as the party’s 2016 presidential nominee with then-Vice President Biden in the aftermath of Clinton’s fainting spell, in part because Clinton’s campaign was “anemic” and had taken on “the odor of failure.”
- Brazile writes that she considered a dozen combinations to replace the nominees and settled on Biden and Sen. Cory Booker (N.J.), the duo she felt most certain would win over enough working-class voters to defeat Republican Donald Trump
- DNC in debt and one of Obama’s pollsters was still being paid $180,000 a year.“The outgoing president no longer needed to assess his approval ratings or his policy decisions, at least not when the Democratic Party was fighting for its survival against a hostile foreign power,”
- Brazile writes that she inherited a national party in disarray, in part because President Obama, Clinton and Wasserman Schultz were “three titanic egos” who had “stripped the party to a shell for their own purposes.”
- 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.
