Assange Strongly Implies DNC Staffer Was Murdered for Being Wikileaks Source
Alex Griswold, Mediate, Aug 10 2016

In an interview with Dutch television show Nieuwsuur, Wikileaks founder Julian Assange strongly implied that a DNC staffer murdered in July was his source for the leaked DNC emails and hinted that he may have been killed for that reason. He was referring to the death of DNC data analyst Seth Rich. Assange said:

Whistleblowers go to significant efforts to get us material, and often very significant risks. As a 27-year-old, works for the DNC, was shot in the back, murdered just a few weeks ago for unknown reasons as he was walking down the street in Washington.

The host asked:

That was just a robbery I believe, wasn’t it?

Assange replied:

No, there’s no finding.

The host:

So what are you suggesting?

Assange replied:

I’m suggesting that our sources take risks.

But when asked point-blank whether Rich was a Wikileaks source, Assange refused to confirm or deny it. The interview came the same day that Wikileaks offered a $20k reward to anyone who could offer information about Rich’s death. The offer appeared to intentionally play into a budding conspiracy theory that Rich was murdered by Hillary Clinton or one of her supporters. Watch above, via Nieuwsuur.
