Judicial Watch Sues FBI For Seth Rich Records: Is Keystone to Russia Collusion Hoax Crumbling?

The entire Russia-Trump collusion hoax is now more than three years old… maybe closer to four years old, and no evidence has been found by CIA-FBI-DOJ conspirators that links Donald Trump to the Kremlin.  

Not some minor evidence, N-O E-V-I-D-E-N-C-E.  Zip, zero, nada.  

At a point long ago, questions arose as to why the intelligence community and Marxist/Democrats continue working so hard to prop up this disproven scheme?

Yesterday’s court filing by Judicial Watch sheds daylight on the answer to that question.

(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch announced today it filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the FBI for all records related to murdered Democratic National Committee (DNC) Voter Expansion Data Director Seth Rich.

Rich, 27, was murdered on July 10, 2016, according to the Metropolitan Police Department of the District of Columbia. The DC police reports that Rich was killed at approximately 4:19 a.m. in the 2100 block of Flagler Place NW, Washington, DC.

No one has been charged in connection with Rich’s death. The case has not been closed, and the DC police are offering a $25,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible.

Judicial Watch filed the lawsuit in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia after the FBI failed to respond to a July 26, 2019, Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request seeking all records related to Rich and his murder (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of Justice (No. 1:20-cv-00385)).


In a recent production of Peter Strzok-Lisa Page emails obtained by Judicial Watch, the Seth Rich controversy was the subject of one FBI email exchange. In a heavily redacted August 10, 2016, email exchange Strzok sends Page a forwarded message from unidentified agents from the FBI’s Washington Field Office (WFO) discussing Rich.

A public affairs official whose name was redacted opens the WFO email chain, writing:

Various news outlets are reporting today that Julian Assange suggested during a recent overseas interview that DNC Staffer, Seth Rich was a Wikileaks source, and may have been killed because he leaked the DNC emails to his organization, and that Wikileak’s was offering $20,000 for information regarding Rich’s death last month. Based on this news, we anticipate additional press coverage on this matter. I hear that you are in class today; however, when you have a moment, can you please give me a call to discuss what involvement the Bureau has in the investigation… (read more)

Seth Rich was an employee of the DNC with access to key databases.  Mr. Rich was said to have been a supporter of Bernie Sanders who realized the Clinton-DNC apparatus was conspiring to rig the 2016 Democratic presidential nominating process against Bernie.

His July 10, 2016 murder, reportedly the morning before he was to present his evidence to the FBI, remains unsolved.  What was the evidence that Mr. Rich thought important enough that it warranted the attention of the FBI?

Was Mr. Rich murdered to prevent a public airing of the Clinton-DNC corruption?  Had he shared that information with anyone else prior to his death?

Let’s get straight to it.  Had Seth Rich been Wikileaks’ source for the DNC data dump?


Keep in mind that both the Democratic and Republican Parties are private corporations that exist to protect and enrich themselves.  And both parties are married to the Russian interference narrative.

There are ample reasons for independent investigators to want to prove that Wikileaks had nothing to do with Russia based on these facts:

The NSA’s former Technical Director William Binney told us it would be impossible to attain the download speeds that were required for the size of the file that was stolen to be accomplished through a “hack.”

  • Cyber security legend John McAfee also said the evidence didn’t support the claim of Russian involvement.
  • Julian Assange denied Russian involvement with Wikileaks –  “We can say, we have said, repeatedly that our source is not the Russian government and it is not a state party” – and he has refused to confirm or deny involvement with Seth Rich.
  • Multiple witnesses – Ellen Rattner and Congressman Dana Rohrbacher – who each spent three hours with Assange came away saying there is evidence that Assange’s Russia denials are true.

Rohrbacher: “Once we know the Russians weren’t involved, then we have to understand that this massive propaganda campaign, this historic con-job that happened after the election to prevent our president from exercising the powers granted to him by the voters, this is one of the great political crimes committed against the American people in our history.” 

Rohrbacher said he saw evidence that makes him 99% certain Assange’s consistent assertion that, “We can say, we have said, repeatedly that our source is not the Russian government and it is not a state party,” is absolutely true. 

Knowing how critical it is for the Deep State conspirators  to keep the public from understanding the Rich-Assange-Wikileaks nexus – that would prove to many the weaponization of the intelligence community by a corrupt former presidential administration with the intention of destroying a patriotic successor to the White House – Seth Rich is dead and Julian Assange rots in a jail cell unable to tell his story…

The Keystone is crumbling…
