WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange hinted DNC staffer may have been assassinated because of his role in the Democratic National Committee (DNC) email leak scandal. Julian said WikiLeaks protects their sources, however believes there is something nefarious about the murder of Seth Rich and should be investigated as suspicious.
Seth was murdered on July 10th 2016 around 4am. The Washington Police Department originally thought the murder was a robbery, however their position has changed because no items were stolen. He still had his money, wallet, watch, etc. There is additional speculation because of meetings with the FBI.
The case remains open.
