Murdered DNC staffer Seth Rich

WASHINGTON – A spokesman for the family of Seth Rich, the Democratic National Committee employee who was shot and killed in Washington last summer – a homicide that remains unsolved – is trashing the statements made by a private investigator hired to look into the death.

Brad Brauman, a professional Democratic crisis public-relations consultant, was put in touch with Rich’s family in the days following his murder last July – by two friends who worked for the DNC.

He was responding to comments to WND by investigator Rod Wheeler, who told WND earlier that he was stunned when he learned a top DNC official had contacted Washington police and Rich’s family demanding to know why Wheeler was inquiring about the death.

Wheeler’s comments earlier also allegedly suggested that Rich could have been the insider source who leaked DNC emails to WikiLeaks over the last year or so.

Some of those leaked emails ended up catching Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in their web, subjecting her eventually to a blast from then-FBI chief James Comey that she was extremely careless with the nation’s classified secrets.
