WASHINGTON - New video of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange was released on Tuesday that suggests the murdered Democratic National Committee staffer was the source of the #DNCLeaks.
"Whistleblowers often take very significant efforts to bring us material and often at very significant risks. There’s a 27-year-old who works for the DNC and who was shot in the back, murdered, just a few weeks ago, for unknown reasons as he was walking down the streets in Washington."
Seth Rich was shot to death last month in Washington, D.C. The father of the murdered 27-year-old DNC employee questioned the theory his son's death was a robbery saying:
"If it was a robbery... it failed because he still has his watch, he still has his money... he still has his credit cards, still had his phone so it was a wasted effort except we lost a life.”
WikiLeaks is offering a $20,000 reward for information leading to the conviction of Seth Rich's killer. Washington, D.C. police are also offering a $25,000 reward. If you have information to add please leave a comment. What do you think?
