Did Amy Dacey snitch on Seth Rich and tell John Podesta that Rich was leaking emails to WikiLeaks?
On July 10th, 2016, 27 year-old Omaha native and Democratic staffer Seth Rich was murdered in an upscale Washington DC neighborhood. Rich was talking to his girlfriend and then suddenly told her he had to go. According to his parents at 4:18am in the morning there were two shots fired. Police found Rich conscious and breathing but he died later in a hospital. The killer or killers took nothing from their victim, leaving behind his wallet, watch and phone.
Seth Rich’s father Joel told reporters, “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.”
A few weeks after Rich’s murder, former Head of the DNC, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, lost her position during the DNC Convention due to WikiLeaks emails being released that showed her efforts to enable Hillary Clinton to win the DNC nomination and steal the nomination from Bernie Sanders. (Wasserman Schultz’s brother, Steven Wasserman, is the Assistant US Attorney at the Attorney’s office for the District of Columbia. Questions have arisen as to whether Steven played a part in burying the Seth Rich murder case in DC. No one has yet been charged in spite of the many unanswered questions related to the murder case.)
Because Rich reportedly provided emails to WikiLeaks there are many who believe Rich was murdered as a result. One reason for this belief occurred in August of 2016. At that time Wikileaks offered a $20,000 reward for information on the murder of DNC staffer Seth Rich. WikiLeaks founder, Julian Assange, in an interview alluded to the fact that Seth Rich may have supplied the emails that WikiLeaks leaked during the election last year.

There are numerous others who have offered rewards for information on the death of Seth Rich. Many believe that Seth Rich provided DNC emails to WikiLeaks shortly before his death and Kim Dot Com revealed that he has proof that Seth Rich provided the emails to WikiLeaks.
One question that remains open until today is who provided information to the DNC that implicated Rich in releasing emails to WikiLeaks?
According to research found at reddit, one DNC staffer by the name of Amy Dacey had a long relationship with John Podesta, Hillary Clinton’s seedy Campaign Manager. As far back as 2007, Dacey was in contact with Podesta according to Podesta’s own emails released by WikiLeaks. Dacey worked at the SEIU and then later was Executive Director at Fund for America all the time working with the Podesta crowd.
Dacey eventually worked her way in as CEO of the DNC and was leading the investigation into the voter database compromise that happened at the end of 2015. According to Dacey’s own report embedded in an email from December 2015 released by WikiLeaks, the DNC hired a firm by the name of NGP Van as its software partner. According to Dacey:
NGP VAN applied a new software patch to the DNC’s voter database system, and because of an error in the code, users were capable of accessing some limited, yet extremely valuable information belonging to other campaigns for a very brief window of time.
After NGP VAN fixed the “glitch”, the DNC asked the software firm to:
– Identify any users who may have accessed information from another campaign inappropriately,
– Pinpoint exactly what actions any such users took in the system, and
– Report these findings to the DNC so we would know what, if any, data was actually acquired.
According to Dacey in her report to Hillary’s Campaign Manager John Podesta:
NGP VAN found that campaign staff on the Sanders campaign, including the campaign’s national data director, had accessed proprietary information about which voters were being targeted by the Clinton campaign — and in doing so violated their agreements with the DNC. These staffers then saved this information in their personal folders on the system, and over the course of the next day, we learned that at least one staffer appeared to have generated reports and exported them from the system. None of this is in dispute. It’s fully documented in the system logs. And these details reveal nothing less than a serious violation of the agreements governing the use of this data. Underscoring that fact is the point that the Sanders campaign has fired their national data director and indicated further disciplinary actions may be taken pending the results of their own investigation.
Towards the end of Dacey’s report she noted that the DNC will “continue to investigate the incident with the help of an independent auditor.”
Another email at the time written by Podesta notes that she [Hillary] “is whipped up on actual damage“. Apparently Hillary wanted to know all that that had been leaked as if she was hiding something with major implications.
A couple months later in February of 2016 the DNC was still talking about information being leaked. Podesta reports in an email released by WikiLeaks at that time that he was “definitely for making an example of a suspected leaker whether or not we have any real basis for it.”

It appears at this time that the DNC was still focused on finding a leaker in the spring of 2016 and the leaker had not yet been found. It is also a fact that Podesta wanted to make an example of the leaker as noted in the email above and Seth Rich was murdered on the night of July 10th.
Disgraced Amy Dacey and the individuals who performed her audit in early 2016 are key suspects in knowledge of when and if Seth Rich was identified as the DNC leaker. She also should be asked to whom this was communicated with and what was said.
