Seth Rich Family Detective Speaks: Police Were Told to Stand Down on Murder Investigation (Video)
While President Donald Trump’s leak of sensitive information to the Russians dominated much of the news cycle early Tuesday, Fox News and other outlets were featuring a wholly different, but equally politically charged, story.
According to “investigative sources” cited in the story, Seth Rich, the Democratic National Committee staffer who was gunned down last summer by unknown assailants in the streets of Washington, D.C., leaked thousands of internal emails to WikiLeaks before he was killed.
“My investigation up to this point shows there was some degree of email exchange between Seth Rich and WikiLeaks,” Rod Wheeler, a former District of Columbia homicide detective and Fox News contributor, told Fox News. “I do believe that the answers to who murdered Seth Rich sits on his computer on a shelf at the D.C police or FBI headquarters. ... [S]omeone within the D.C. government, DNC or Clinton team is blocking the murder investigation from going forward.”
In March, Aaron Rich started a GoFundMe page with the goal of raising $200,000 to help find his brother’s killers. So far, nearly $20,000 has been donated.
