The treachery and overall nastiness going on inside the Hillary Clinton campaign is getting more astounding by the day. Some emails from Hillary’s campaign chairman, John Podesta, leaked by WikiLeaks, seem to link the Clintons to a murder plot.
“I’m definitely for making an example of a suspected leaker whether or not we have any real basis for it,” John Podesta said not long before the young DNC staffer, Seth Rich, was mysteriously killed. Some unsubstantiated claims indicate Rich may have been Julian Assange’s source for the leaked DNC emails.

Seth Conrad Rich was shot dead on a public street in a safe, upscale neighborhood in Washington, D.C. He was not robbed, given his wallet, cell phone, and other belongings were still on his person when police officers arrived on the murder scene.
Rich, 27, was a DNC Voter Expansion Data Director. He was killed on July 10th after the FBI had cleared Hillary Clinton of any criminal charges for the mishandling of classified information in the email investigation.
There are still no leads in the Seth Rich murder case. He was shot down just a few days before Julian Assange shared the hacked DNC emails via WikiLeaks.
Assange has neither confirmed nor denied that Rich was the DNC email leaker. However, the WikiLeaks founder firmly believes the killer was motivated by all of the online rumors indicating Rich was the leak.
The WikiLeaks founder has offered a $20,000 reward for anyone who comes forward with information leading to the arrest of Seth Rich’s killer. Assange said if potential sources become fearful of their lives, they will no longer gather information to share the truth with the public, and Wikileaks will dry up entirely.
“If there’s someone who’s potentially connected to our publication, and that person has been murdered in suspicious circumstances, it doesn’t necessarily mean that the two are connected,” said Julian Assange after offering the substantial reward. “But it is a very serious matter…That type of allegation is very serious, and it’s taken very seriously by us.”
The latest WikiLeaks email dump illustrates a willingness by Hillary’s campaign staff to silence and make an example of anyone who dares to threaten her ascension to the Oval Office. “I think we have to make examples now of people who have violated the trust of HRC and the rest of the team. People going forward need to know there are stiff consequences for leaking, self-promotion, unauthorized talking with the press. No one, literally no one, talked to the press in either Obama campaign without clearing it with campaign brass.”
The John Podesta email conversation goes on to discuss the many public relations problems Hillary Clinton faces as a candidate. One of the emails in this same email chain, between Podesta and campaign staffers, indicated they made a collective decision to keep Hillary out of the public eye and away from microphones as much as possible.
“I know HRC believes the more people you talk to the better, but it simply isn’t. Especially for her. We really need to tighten who she talks to and make sure that Huma/schedulers route most people through high level folks on the campaign so that they are being listened to.”
What do you think of the emerging email scandal still plaguing Hillary’s campaign? Did Seth Rich lose his life due to what he may have known and shared with WikiLeaks?
