DNC, Media and John Podesta Block Discussion of Seth Rich’s Murder… Even Using ‘Bots’ to Trash Hannity on Rich Coverage

Guest post by Joe Hoft

Mainstream Media (MSM) is pushing invalidated, unsubstantiated and crazy conspiratorial stories about President Trump colluding with Russia to win last year’s election.   But liberal media won’t touch the story about former DNC staffer Seth Rich being gunned down in Washington DC last year.

Democrats and their media continue to push the false tale that Trump worked with Russia to steal the 2016 Presidential election.  This lie is being promoted on all media outlets as a matter of fact even though there is no evidence to support the accusation.  Democrats and the MSM have argued that Trump somehow supplied DNC emails to WikiLeaks that impacted the election and gave the victory to Trump.  This is of course is false on all levels. For example, DNC emails were released by WikiLeaks before the election but for the most part the MSM ignored them.  Also, the emails did contain information that showed unethical, if not criminal, actions by John Podesta and Hillary Clinton before the campaign, but there is no information to date that proves that the emails released were in any way false or made up.

Hillary Clinton’s creepy former Campaign Manager John Podesta has a history of seedy and alleged illegal activity. The late Andrew Breitbart, entrepreneur and creator of Breitbart.com knew this back in 2012 (warning on language):

Breitbart was ahead of his time.

The WikiLeaks emails proved that the Clinton campaign was in cahoots with the media. At least 65 MSM reporters were meeting with and/or coordinating offline with top Hillary advisers. The emails also showed that as early as December 2015 Podesta discussed Trump’s “bromance with Putin” and the potential for using it as a means to slander Trump.

Again in April 2016, Podesta was busy conjuring up a Russia smear campaign against then candidate Trump.

The day after Hillary’s loss to President Trump, it is reported that Podesta and the Clinton campaign put the Trump/Russia smear campaign into full swing. Podesta and Clinton led this smear campaign in spite of having multiple connections with Russia themselves.

Hillary, through the Clinton Foundation, received millions from Russia in return for providing a large percentage of US uranium to Russia while Secretary of State under President Obama. As for Podesta, his own emails released by WikiLeaks show that he received 75,000 shares in a Russia President Vladimir Putin connected energy company and then in an apparent move to cover this up, gave the shares to his daughter.

President Trump even tweeted about the Clinton – Podesta connections to Russia, asking why the MSM doesn’t cover these seedy links.

Many others have tweeted the same:

Knowing that Podesta is involved with the Russia/Trump fallacy, it is clear that it must be full of lies. What also is clear is that Podesta, Clinton, the Democrats and their media are doing all they can to push these lies. Also, there’s probably a good chance that a number of the ‘leaks’ in the press are just outright lies created by someone like John Podesta too.

The reason why the Democrats are doing this is not only because the Democrats want to smear Trump and his legacy. The more plausible reason is that the Democrats all know that once the President’s team starts investigating the Clinton Foundation, Obama’s illegal wire tapping and all the many other Democrat scandals and illegal acts, many of them are facing jail time.  But there seems to be an even more determined push to stop the MSM from reporting on Seth Rich’s murder.

Seth Rich provided DNC emails to WikiLeaks shortly before his death and today Kim Dot Com dropped a bombshell and revealed that he has proof that Seth Rich provided the emails to WikiLeaks.  This evidence alone dismantles the Trump-Russia narrative.  If Seth Rich provided DNC emails to WikiLeaks, is this why he was murdered?

Efforts to investigate the Seth Rich murder case have been opposed.  A detective investigating the Seth Rich murder case, Rod Wheeler, was contacted by former DNC Chair and CNN pundit Donna Brazile and confronted and asked why he was working on the Seth Rich case.  TV and radio personality Sean Hannity reported on the Seth Rich murder case and this reportedly scares the hell out of top DNC and Hillary lackeys.  If you google Sean Hannity and Seth Rich you will see a concerted effort by the MSM to paint the Seth Rich murder story as reported by Sean Hannity as a conspiracy story.

Why does the fact that Seth Rich was murdered by two men in cold blood, shot in the back in a peaceful Washington DC neighborhood early in the morning last year, the young man who provided WikiLeaks the DNC emails that so clearly showed the corruption within the DNC and the Hillary camp, so deeply scare Podesta and the leadership within the DNC?

Perhaps one clue is the email that Podesta wrote last year as released by WikiLeaks where he says he “would love an example being made” [of a leaker].

Over the weekend it was reported that John Podesta went on a bloody rampage in a recent interview about the election.  In the interview he clearly projects himself onto President Trump:

Donald Trump is “unfit for office,” a president whose actions are often “absolutely crazy” and whose White House has “a complete disregard for the truth.”

A cursory review of Podesta’s emails released by WikiLeaks show how seedy and dishonest Podesta is.  But he seems more unhinged than ever before.  Is this because the Seth Rich story has recently made the headlines and is a tale whose truth is yet to be told?

According to a tweet by @Boca Vista on Twitter, the DNC are now even using bots pushing a CNN story to attack Sean Hannity about the Seth Rich Story. The bots in this story are system generated tweets that are created to make it look like a number of individuals are sending tweets but in reality only one person or entity is sending many tweets.

Ultimately, Seth Rich was just a number to Podesta and the DNC. Podesta and the DNC showed their true colors when after his untimely death, rather than offer a reward for information related to his murder, they named a bike rack after him.

We need to ask and find out where was John Podesta last year when Seth Rich was murdered? Where was Podesta’s brother? Also, is there any connection between the Podesta brother’s and the Seth Rich murder? We know two men murdered Seth Rich and were caught on camera doing it. Where is this video? Why is John Podesta so interested in getting this story out of the hands of the Democrat MSM complex? Is this one of the reasons why the fake Trump – Russia story was created in the first place, to damage the President’s relationship with the American people so that when the facts started coming out about Seth Rich’s murder and Obama’s illegal spying on Americans, these stories would be discarded by the public? Finally, how could the DNC ever allow someone to be so high up in their party or is this a prerequisite to being a top Democrat?

We can only hope answers to questions like these are forthcoming in the upcoming weeks and months.
