Guccifer 2.0 Says the DNC leaker was ‘Seth’ Rich Later Murdered during Clinton campaign | Apr 09, 2017

Wikileaks Bombshell: Guccifer 2.0 Admits “Seth” Rich Was DNC Leaker

| theGatewayPundit

“Wikileaks released a series direct messages from US alleged “Russian spy” Guccifer 2.0 to acress model Robin Young (according to Young).

In the stream of texts the discussion leads to the DNC leaker.

His name is “Seth”…

** In November Julian Assange said Russia did not hack into the DNC servers.

Guccifer admits he is not the DNC hacker.
He says the whistleblower is “seth”

This may explain why the DNC did not allow the FBI to look at its servers.

On July 8, 2016, 27 year-old Democratic staffer Seth Conrad Rich was murdered in Washington DC. The killer or killers took nothing from their victim, leaving behind his wallet, watch and phone.

Shortly after the killing, Redditors and social media users were pursuing a “lead” saying that Rich was en route to the FBI the morning of his murder, apparently intending to speak to special agents about an ongoing court case” possibly involving the Clinton family.

Seth Rich’s father Joel told reporters, “If it was a robbery — it failed because he still has his watch, he still has his money — he still has his credit cards, still had his phone so it was a wasted effort except we lost a life.”

From the TGP Comments section:

  • >Yeah, the most likely scenario was that Seth was the leaker so they put a hit on him so they could run their russian conspiracy theory on election hacking, which they have yet to produce proof of.

    >Just like Vince Foster…

    >Are the D.C. police and/or the FBI even investigating Rich’s murder? If not, why not? If the FBI knew this guy was coming to them that day and he got murdered on the way then what the hell are they doing about it? The TV show See No Evil on Investigation Discovery Channel can solve this murder faster than the FBI.

    >Well that cinches it! Seth Rich’s murder will now get the same “special” FBI treatment that Vince Foster’s murder received.

Julian Assange hints murdered DNC staffer Seth Rich was source of damaging email leaks

| News.com.au  – Aug 2016

SETH Rich, a young Democratic National Convention staffer, was walking home in an up-market Washington neighbourhood, talking to his girlfriend on the phone when he was shot dead.

That’s as much as anyone knows for sure about the death of the 27-year-old. Why he was killed and who was responsible is now at the centre of political intrigue and conspiracy theories leading all the way to presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has suggested Rich was gunned down in Washington DC for being the “source” of a damaging leak that threw last month’s Democratic National Convention into chaos.

The so-called #DNCLeaks, a trove of 20,000 emails stolen from the DNC servers, contained explosive details of collusion between the Clinton camp and the DNC to undermine the Bernie Sanders campaign, as well as a cosy relationship between the DNC and media organisations including CNN, Politico, the Wall Street Journal and the Washington Post.

The emails led to the resignation of DNC chairman Debbie Wasserman Schultz and a number of senior staffers on the eve of the convention, which was marred by protests, disruptions and walkouts by Sanders-supporting delegates.

On Tuesday, WikiLeaks announced it was offering its own $US20,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of Rich’s killer, sparking widespread speculation that he was the source of the leaks, which had previously been pinned on Russia.

Speaking on Dutch television later that day, Assange cited Rich’s death as an example of the risks whistleblowers take, while refusing to confirm Rich was the source of the leaks.

“Whistleblowers go to significant efforts to get us material and often very significant risks,” Assange said. “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.”

When the host replied that it was a robbery, Assange replied: “No. There’s no finding. I’m suggesting that our sources take risks, and they become concerned to see things occurring like that.”

Pressed to confirm Rich was the source, Assange said: “We don’t comment on who our sources are. We have to understand how high the stakes are in the United States. Our sources face serious risks, that’s why they come to us, so we can protect their anonymity.

“Others have suggested that [Rich was murdered for being the source]. We are investigating to understand what happened in that situation with Seth Rich. I think it is a concerning situation. There’s not a conclusion yet, we wouldn’t be willing to state a conclusion, but we are concerned about it.

“More importantly, a variety of WikiLeaks sources are concerned when that kind of thing happens.”

FBI SUED Over Andrew Breitbart Records Request…What Are They Withholding?

| 100percentfedup.com

“Patty and I were able to hear two different speeches from Andrew Breitbart the weekend before he died a sudden death. In his speech on Friday night, he spoke to a small private crowd about what he had on Obama and the Obama cronies. He was to release information soon but he never got the chance to because he died suddenly on the streets of his hometown.

The speech he gave to a sold out crowd on Saturday is epic. We often listen to it to get fired up about bringing down the commies currently trying to destroy America. It’s truly epic!

BuzzFeed wants some answers from the FBI about deceased conservative media figure Andrew Breitbart — and it’s willing to sue to find out.

BuzzFeed and journalist Jason Leopold have filed a complaint against the FBI, claiming that the bureau hasn’t done everything it can to answer their request for information on Breitbart.

The complaint, filed Friday in federal court in California, says that Leopold filed a Freedom of Information Act request with the FBI for “all records related to Andrew Breitbart” on Aug. 7, 2012, a few months after Breitbart died at age 43.

According to the suit, the FBI responded to the request on Sept. 4, but said that the bureau only searched it “main file records,” claiming that no records were located.

That was an inadequate effort, as far as the suit is contained.

The complaint says that Leopold appealed the FBI’s response but was denied by the U.S. Department of Justice Office of Information in 2013.”

ANOTHER MYSTERIOUS DEATH=> Activist and Sanders Supporter Who Served Papers to DNC on Fraud Case Found Dead | Aug 2016

| theGatewayPundit

“On July 3, 2016, Shawn Lucas and filmmaker Ricardo Villaba served the DNC Services Corp. and Chairperson Debbie Wasserman Schultz at DNC’s headquarters in Washington, D.C., in the fraud class action suit against the Democrat Party on behalf of Bernie Sanders supporters.

Shawn Lucas was thrilled about serving the papers to the DNC before Independence Day.

This was before Wikileaks released documents proving the DNC was working against the Sanders campaign during the 2016 primary.

Shawn Lucas was found dead this week.

This follows the death of 27 year-old Democratic staffer Seth Conrad Rich who was murdered in Washington DC on July 8. The killer or killers appear to have taken nothing from their victim, leaving behind his wallet, watch and phone.

Shortly after the killing, Redditors and social media users were pursuing a “lead” saying that Rich was en route to the FBI the morning of his murder, apparently intending to speak to special agents about an “ongoing court case” possibly involving the Clinton family.”

Student Mob Shuts Down ‘Blue Lives Matter’ Lecture at Claremont McKenna College

| Breitbart

“A mob of over 250 angry student protesters derailed a lecture on the rise of anti-police attitudes in the United States held at Claremont McKenna College on Thursday.

The speaker, Heather Mac Donald, a Manhattan Institute scholar and author of the 2016 book “The War on Cops,” was met with a sizable resistance before her scheduled lecture at Claremont McKenna College on Thursday evening. Student protesters banged on windows and shouted “F*ck the police” and “Black Lives Matter,” ultimately forcing the lecture to be livestreamed online from a near-empty room on campus.

Just a day before her event at Claremont McKenna, a similar event was derailed by protesters at UCLA.

“The protesters surrounded all the doors to the Atheneum where I was supposed to speak, so none of the students who had signed up to attend my lecture could get in,” Mac Donald said. “I was hustled from my guest suite by several police officers from Claremont PD into the lecture hall. It was decided that I would give the speech for live streaming to a largely empty hall. The organizers moved the podium so that it would not be visible through the windows to the students surrounding the building once night fell. We jumpstarted the timing of my talk as the crowd seemed to be getting more unruly.”

Unfortunately, campus police decided to cut Mac Donald’s lives-stream short. “During my speech, the protesters banged on the glass windows and shouted. It was extremely noisy inside the hall. I took two questions from students who were watching on livestream, but then the cops decided that things were getting too chaotic and I should stop speaking,” Mac Donald said. “An escape plan through the kitchen into an unmarked police van was devised; I was surrounded by about four cops. Protesters were sitting on the stoop outside the door through which I exited, but we had taken them by surprise and we got through them.”

Violent Leftist ‘Militia’ Attack at Le Pen Rally in Corsica

| theGatewayPundit

“The altercations this Saturday in Corsica saw over a dozen violent, leftist protestors removed from the location and shortly after an evacuation of the hall where French National Front candidate, Marine Le Pen was supposed to speak in Ajaccio, Corsica.

Breitbart London reports:

Around 50 people demonstrated in front of the venue in Ajaccio, chanting “We do not want the National Front”, according to local newspaper Corse Matin.

Some of them managed to enter the hall where Le Pen was expected to speak. They clashed with Le Pen’s security team and fired teargas, prompting the evacuation of the hall, the newspaper said.

The event was moved to another venue, French television BFM TV said.

David Rachline, the campaign manager for Marine Le Pen, indicated on Twitter that the local authorities had failed at securing the venue and had not done enough to keep everyone safe. Rachline also stated that a National Front activist was seriously injured during the attack by the far-left “militia”.

Wikileaks CIA Revelations Refuel Speculation That Author Michael Hastings Was Murdered by Deep State Operatives

| theGatewayPundit |

“Wikileaks released documents today on the CIA’s global hacking force.
The documents reveal CIA attempts to remotely hack into cars and trucks for remote assassinations.

This news refueled speculation on author Michael Hastings’ death in 2013.

Author Michael Hastings was a vocal critic of the Obama administration, Democratic Party and surveillance state.  In 2013 during the investigation of reporters by the U.S. Department of Justice Hastings referred to the restrictions on the freedom of the press by the Obama administration as a “war” on journalism. His last story, “Why Democrats Love to Spy On Americans”, was published by BuzzFeed on June 7.

Hastings died in a fiery high-speed automobile crash on June 18, 2013, in Los Angeles, California.

Michael Hastings died in a fiery crash hours after contacting Wikileaks.

Hastings contacted Wikileaks hours before his fatal crash. He sent out a panicked email saying the FBI was investigating him.

Michael Hastings contacted WikiLeaks lawyer Jennifer Robinson just a few hours before he died, saying that the FBI was investigating him.

Hastings told his neighbor he believed his Mercedes had been tampered with, according to a report.

In a lengthy profile by LA Weekly, Hastings’ neighbor Jordanna Thigpen says he knocked on her door after midnight and asked to borrow her Volvo because he was afraid to drive his own car.

“He was scared, and he wanted to leave town,” she told the weekly newspaper. She declined, saying her car was in need of repairs.

Hastings died later that night. He lost control of his car.”

How CIA allegedly turns everyday devices into high-tech spy weapons

| New York Post |

“CIA software can secretly turn everyday electronics like smartphones and high-tech TVs into listening devices to spy on unsuspecting users, WikiLeaks claimed in a massive document dump Tuesday.

Some of the computer programs target the iOS software that runs Apple iPhones as well as Google’s Android operating system, which does the same for phones built by Samsung, HTC and Sony, WikiLeaks said.

The “weaponized” software also reportedly provides techniques to defeat the encryption abilities of popular apps including WhatsApp, Signal, Telegram and Wiebo, which claim to supply users with secure and private communications.

One program, known as “Weeping Angel,” can even be used to infect Samsung “smart” TVs and covertly activate their built-in microphones to record conversations and then transmit them over the Internet, WikiLeaks said.

The documents also reveal that the CIA was “looking at infecting the vehicle control systems used by modern cars and trucks” as of 2014, WikiLeaks said.

“The purpose of such control is not specified, but it would permit the CIA to engage in nearly undetectable assassinations,” WikiLeaks suggested.”

Obama’s Police State | Wikileaks Reveals CIA Tools and Tactics for Domestic Spying |

| Heavy |

 

 

“It was revealed today by the WikiLeaks’ Vault 7 leak that the Central Intelligence Agency may have car hacking capabilities, leading online conspiracists to further the claims that journalist Michael Hastings was murdered by the CIA.

Hastings died on June 18, 2013, in a fiery high-speed automobile crash in his Mercedes C250 Coupé following the publication of Why Democrats Love to Spy On Americans” on BuzzFeed. Hastings had been a vocal critic of the Obama administration. Following his death, former U.S. National Coordinator for Security, Infrastructure Protection, and Counter-terrorism Richard A. Clarke said that Hastings’ crash was consistent with a “car cyber attack.”

Clark told the Huffington Post, “What has been revealed as a result of some research at universities is that it’s relatively easy to hack your way into the control system of a car, and to do such things as cause acceleration when the driver doesn’t want acceleration, to throw on the brakes when the driver doesn’t want the brakes on, to launch an air bag… You can do some really highly destructive things now, through hacking a car, and it’s not that hard.”

According to CW6 San Diego, Hastings claimed to have received a death threat prior to the crash by a staff member at the McChrystal Group about a critical passage in his book, The Operators: The Wild and Terrifying Inside Story of America’s War in Afghanistan. The McChrystal Group is an advisory firm started by retired United States Army general Stanley Allen McChrystal.

McChrystal’s last military assignment was in Afghanistan.

CW6 also reported that Hastings was investigating CIA Director John Brennan for an upcoming exposé before his death.

Redditors on r/conspiracy are already connecting the new information to the death of Hastings. It cannot be independently confirmed.

However, a July 23, 2015, article on WhoWhatWhy by Russ Baker also drew a similar conclusion to conspiracist Redditors, despite not having access to WikiLeaks Vault 7 information.”
