Was Seth Rich Killed Over The Steele Dossier?
Flopping Aces ^ | 01-16-18 | Daniel John Sobieski

If we are to believe the transcript of Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson’s testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee in August, released unexpectedly by Sen. Diane Feinstein, D-Calif., the search for a smoking gun in the dossier scandal may lead us to a dead body, at least according to Simpson’s lawyer:

During a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing in August 2017, Glenn Simpson was questioned about whether he tried to “assess the credibility” of sources behind information uncovered by Christopher Steele, a former British intelligence agent who compiled the dossier.

“Yes, but I’m not going to get into sourcing information,” Simpson said.

Asked again what “steps he took to verify their credibility,” Simpson declined to answer.

His lawyer, Joshua Levy, then intervened and said Simpson was just trying to protect his sources.

“Somebody’s already been killed as a result of the publication of this dossier and no harm should come to anybody related to this honest work,” Levy said.

The interview didn’t pursue the line of questioning further.

Well, maybe somebody should pursue this hand grenade tossed in the middle of the room. Whoa! Somebody’s already been killed as the result of the dossier put together by former British spy Christopher Steele from questionable Russian sources and paid for by the Hillary Clinton campaign and the DNC, and possibly used by the FBI to obtain FISA warrants to spy on the campaign of Hillary’s opponent, Donald J. Trump?

As shocking as this revelation may be, it dovetails nicely with fear expressed for her safety by former DNC Chair Donna Brazile. In a stunning interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos about her new book “Hacks”, Brazile made cryptic references to murdered DNC IT staffer Seth Rich and revealed that afterwards she took the precautions one takes when one fears for their life.

So far speculation about the unsolved murder of Seth Rich have been dismissed as right-wing conspiracy theories but Brazile’s references to him in the light of all that has come out about Wikileaks, the Fusion GPS dossier, Hillary’s purchase of the DNC that rigged the primaries against Bernie Sanders, may be a key to a missing piece of this whole puzzle.

We have the unsolved murder of a former DNC staffer, Seth Rich, a former DNC chair that feared for her life, and a statement by the lawyer for the founder of Fusion GPS suggesting someone has been killed over the dossier. Would it be a bridge too far to connect thos dots?

Brazile, according to Newsweek, in a piece titled “DNC’S Donna Brazile Dedicated Her Book To ‘Patriot’ Seth Rich, Whose Death Made Her Fear For Own Life”, dedicated her book in part to Rich:

A new book by Donna Brazile, the former interim chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee (DNC), has been making headlines for its controversial claims about the 2016 presidential election and the Hillary Clinton campaign. But the provocative points start even before the first chapter, as Brazile reportedly dedicated the book in part to Seth Rich, the DNC staffer whose murder launched a conspiracy theory.

Axios reported on Sunday that the book’s dedication reads, “In loving memory of my father, Lionel Brazile Sr.; my beloved sister, Sheila Brazile; my fearless uncles Nat, Floyd, and Douglas; Harlem’s finest, my aunt Lucille; my friend and mentor, David Kaufmann; my DNC colleague and patriot, Seth Rich; and my beloved Pomeranian, Chip Joshua Marvin Brazile (Booty Wipes). I miss y’all.”…Rich appears elsewhere in Brazile’s book, as the Post reported earlier in the weekend. She wrote that Rich’s murder haunted her and that she'd installed surveillance cameras at her home and would keep the blinds in her office window closed so she could not be seen by snipers, according to the Post.

Brazile talked about Rich on ABC News’s This Week with George Stephanopoulos on Sunday. She told the host about her critics: “They don’t know what it was like to be over the DNC during this hacking. They don’t know what it’s like to bury a child. I did: Seth Rich.”

Why did Donna Brazile fear for her life after Seth’s Rich unsolved murder? Were these cryptic references a way of warning those who she feared might do her harm that more would be revealed after her possible demise? Only Donna Brazile can elaborate and it is doubtful she will at this point.

Seth’s murder remains a mystery with no apparent motive, not even a robbery gone wrong. As the Daily Caller Investigative Group observes in a piece titled “Donna Brazile Has A Theory About Who Killed Seth Rich”:   From her book “Hacks“:

At this point what difference does it make who Podesta or Hillary had taken out? It’s not what is known, it is who can stay alive as a witness long enough to prove it in front of a grand jury, then judge, then jury?

Here is what was said, and ignored by the questioner.

His lawyer, Joshua Levy, then intervened and said Simpson was just trying to protect his sources.

Somebody’s already been killed as a result of the publication of this dossier and no harm should come to anybody related to this honest work,” Levy said.

The interview didn’t pursue the line of questioning further.

...a grand jury, then judge, then jury...

That presupposes a DOJ willing to prosecute. Let's see Step One first.

One odd factor is to this day, no one has said what type of gun was used in the shooting.

Added to this...an FBI vehicle was broken into a an hour or two prior to the shooting, and a 40-cal Glock was taken. It was about a 20-min drive from where Rich was shot.

If any of this is ever proven, the left - including all the various and sundry Hillary and Bill supporters in the entertainment industry and elsewhere will claim the same thing they almost always claim. “We didn't know.” The truth is, they don't care what's true, only what's known and proven that they no longer can ignore.

Imho, Podesta set up the hit on Rich because he leaked DNC and Hillary campaign data to Wikileaks.

I always thought that story was suspicious. Was a female agent I believe. I am quite sure protocol should have prevented that!

Isn’t it odd that no one ever follows up the bombshells dropped into the center of the interview? No one. Simpson or his mouthpiece claim someone has already died or been killed as a result of the coup attempt and no one follows that up?

Donna was concerned about Seth Rich’s death, but perhaps she also recalled the unsolved murder of Donald Young and other sudden deaths that haunt the Clinton-Obama cabal.

I suspect that the lawyer was blowing smoke to:
1) dramatize why Simpson was so adamant about not revealing his sources.
2) imply the contents of the dossier must be legit if someone was killed after it was published.
3) distance Fusion from responsibility for publishing it. Knowing how dangerous this special knowledge was for the sources, Fusion wouldn’t have published the dossier. (Sort of begs the question of why they created it.)
4) imply that Congressional investigation of the dossier put innocent little lambs at risk — so better not ask questions.
5) plant a red herring to divert attention.

A commenter at floppingaces.com notes that Rich was killed BEFORE publication of the dossier, whereas Levy said someone was killed AFTER. (Someone perpetually anonymous no doubt, and how would Levy know?).

It is conceivable that Rich was killed because he somehow learned about the dossier project and DoJ dirty tricks squad. There is no evidence for this in the public domain, or anything else to tie Rich to the dossier. Seems most likely that Clinton had him lured to a sting operation, and killed for leaking the emails.
