Was Seth Rich Assassinated? Wikileaks Posts Reward In Murder Case, Some Speculate Rich Was DNC Leaker

Was Seth Rich assassinated? Was he the Democratic National Committee (DNC) leaker that gave documents to Wikileaks? Was Seth Rich murdered for information he knew about the DNC? These questions and more have sparked conspiracy theorists to revisit claims of a possible Clinton kill list.

Wikileaks announced on their official Twitter page that they've issued a $20,000 reward for information that leads to a conviction in the Seth Rich murder case. Seth Rich was a DNC staffer who was shot and killed on July 10, 2016, just blocks from his home in Washington, D.C. The New York Daily News covered the case when it broke and stated Rich worked for the DNC as a voter database employee. The case has no witnesses, clues, or evidence, which continues to inspire conspiracy theories.

The top question many ask regarding the Seth Rich murder case is if he was assassinated for being the Wikileaks DNC leaker.

Hidden Americans listed ways in which Seth Rich was connected to Hillary Clinton's campaign. They discussed how Wikileaks founder and editor-in-chief Julian Assange previously stated any DNC staffer could have been the leaker. For some conspiracy theorists, this was confirmation that Rich was the DNC leaker. At this point, Wikileaks has yet to reveal their source, and it is unknown if they every will.
The number of people who think Hillary Clinton is assassinating people is vast, and the conspiracy theory isn't believed by just a few people in small circles. Countless people across the nation have expressed dismay regarding the sudden deaths of people critical of Hillary Clinton and the DNC.
The number of conspiracy theories surrounding the Hillary Clinton campaign and DNC scandal continues to grow each day. To date, there are conspiracy theories surrounding Donald Trump's run for the presidency, the Bill and Hillary Clinton body count and kill list, rumors that Hillary Clinton is in ill health and not healthy enough to be president, and many more. Additionally, Donald Trump has suggested the entire national election will be rigged.

However, out of all the conspiracy theories surrounding Hillary Clinton, none may be as serious as suggestions of murder. Is Hillary Clinton really connected to the murder of DNC staffer Seth Rich?

In a July 25 interview with Democracy Now, Julian Assange spoke about Debbie Wasserman-Schultz and the DNC leak. When asked about the DNC source, Julian Assange gave the following reply.

"In relation to sourcing, I can say some things. A, we never reveal our sources, obviously. That's what we pride ourselves on. And we won't in this case, either. But no one knows who our source is. It's simply speculation. It's, I think, interesting and acceptable to speculate who our sources are. But if we're talking about the DNC, there's lots of consultants that have access, lots of programmers.

"And the DNC has been hacked dozens and dozens of times. Even according to its own reports, it had been hacked extensively over the last few years. And the dates of the emails that we published are significantly after all, or all but one—it's not clear—of the hacking allegations that the DNC says have occurred."

Although Julian Assange and Wikileaks are tight-lipped regarding the source of the DNC leak, the fact they are putting up a $20,000 reward is causing speculation. If Seth Rich was the source, then Wikileaks might feel compelled to draw attention to the case. The Seth Rich murder case appeared cold from the start. Would Wikileaks offer a reward for any DNC staffer who was murdered, or is Seth Rich's case special? Why is Wikileaks choosing to offer a reward in the DNC staffer case? Is Wikileaks offering a reward in the Seth Rich murder case because he was the DNC leaker?
