Fox News is reporting that slain Democratic National Committee staff member Seth Rich might have sent DNC files to WikiLeaks, which could have led to his death.
Rich was murdered during the height of last year’s presidential campaign and his murder remains unsolved.
According to the report, an FBI forensic report of Rich’s computer showed he had made contact with WikiLeaks through Gavin MacFayden, who was a WikiLeaks director.
My investigation up to this point shows there was some degree of email exchange between Seth Rich and WikiLeaks. I do believe that the answers to who murdered Seth Rich sits on his computer on a shelf at the DC police or FBI headquarters.
Rod Wheeler, former DC homicide investigator
Fox News quoted an unnamed federal investigator as claiming:
44,053 emails and 17,761 attachments between Democratic National Committee leaders, spanning from January 2015 through late May 2016, were transferred from Rich to MacFadyen before May 21.
Rich’s family has denied any connection between Rich and WikiLeaks.
