Donna Brazile: The DNC Murdered Seth Rich
Former DNC Chairwomen says she feared for her own life after staffer was killed
Former DNC Chairwoman Donna Brazile has said that she "feared for her own life" after learning that "shadowy elements" from within the campaign were behind the death of murdered staffer Seth Rich.
She revealed that after WikiLeaks published the leaked emails from Hillary Clinton's campaign chair John Podesta, she became increasingly paranoid after being told by "top Democrats" not to discuss her concerns with anyone.
Brazile says she feared that agents within the Democratic Party would suspect her of being involved in the leak and kill her "like they killed Seth Rich."
Even before Rich's death, she was living in fear as higher-ups in the party were aware there was a leak and had made it clear there would be retribution.
Zero Hedge reports: Her fears only intensified, she says, after the mysterious shooting of former campaign staffer Seth Rich, who the authorities said was killed during a robbery, though many so-called "conspiracy theorists" have speculated about a possible Democratic plot to kill Rich for his role in leaking the stash of DNC emails to Wikileaks.
Brazile's anxiety eventually spiraled out of control, to the point where she feared for her own life while serving as interim chairwoman of the DNC.
Brazile describes her mounting anxiety about Russia’s theft of emails and other data from DNC servers, the slow process of discovering the full extent of the cyber attacks and the personal fallout. She likened the feeling to having rats in your basement:
“You take measures to get rid of them, but knowing they are there or have been there, means you never feel truly at peace.”
Brazile says that she was haunted by the still-unsolved murder of DNC data staffer Seth Rich and feared for her own life, shutting the blinds to her office window so snipers could not see her and install surveillance cameras at her home.
She wondered whether listening devices had also been hidden in plants in the DNC executive suite.
At first, Brazile writes of the hacking, top Democratic officials were “encouraging us not to talk about it.”
But she says a wake-up moment came when she visited the White House in August 2016, for President Obama’s 55th birthday party.
National security adviser Susan E. Rice and former attorney general Eric Holder separately pulled her aside quietly to urge her to take the Russian hacking seriously, which she did, she says.
While she doesn’t elaborate on her reasons for knowing that Rich’s death was a homicide, just the fact that Brazile says she, too, suspected that something nefarious might’ve been afoot is reason enough to take a second look at Rich’s death.
Of course, if it’s true that Rich was killed as punishment for leaking the emails, then that would, of course, invalidate most of the evidence supporting the Russia interference narrative that has been propagated by the Democrats and their partners in the intelligence community.
