Julian Assange just dropped a bombshell. While on the Dutch television program Nieuwsuur, Assange seemed to suggest (very explicitly), that Seth Rich was the source for the Wikileaks DNC email cache leak that Hillary Clinton was quick to blame Russia for.
Seth Rich was killed shortly after the DNC email scandal. Was Rich murdered for this leak that may have cost Hillary the Presidency of the United States?
Via the Dutch television program Nieuwsuur…
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.

Some background on Seth Rich and his sudden death after the DNC email hack (via Gateway Pundit) …
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.”
