Conspiracies have begun circulating around the death of DNC staffer Seth Rich, who was shot and killed in Washington D.C.Heatsreet reports, Rich was beaten, shot and killed early on the morning of July 8 while he was walking home and talking on the phone to his girlfriend. Police have said they haven’t determined if his murder was a botched robbery or something else. The killer or killers appear to have taken nothing from their victim, leaving behind his wallet, watch and phone.
Over a month later, there are still no reported leads, suspects, or arrests made in the killing.
That was just the first death generating conspiracy. Shawn Lucas, who went viral in a video of him cheerfully serving lawsuits alleging fraud to the DNC, died suddenly of unknown causes days ago. His death was just over a week after the video in question was taken. In the lawsuit, a group of 120 people stated that “Wasserman Schultz and the DNC were fraudulent, negligent and misrepresented their true motivations in the Democratic presidential primary.” The cause of his death has not yet been determined, and perhaps it was just a huge coincidence.
However, in the case of Rich’s death, Wikileaks founder Julian Assange just added to the controversy with a giant bombshell. To quote from the Gateway Pundit: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.”
Would a robber have left his watch, credit cards, and phone? Of course not.On Tuesday Wikileaks offered a $20,000 reward for information on the murder of DNC staffer Seth rich. Now this… Julian Assange suggested on Tuesday that Seth Rich was a Wikileaks informant.
To quote from the interview:Julian Assange: 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.
Reporter: That was just a robbery, I believe. Wasn’t it?
Julian Assange: No. There’s no finding. So… I’m suggesting that our sources take risks.

What do you all think? Is Assange about to drop an October surprise on us and Hillary Clinton?
