Seth Rich: The Murder Washington Doesn’t Want Solved, by Jack Cashill

Julian Assange probably has a pretty good idea who killed Seth Rich, which is why a good number of powerful people would just as soon Julian Assange die in Belmarsh prison. From Jack Cashill at americanthinker.com:

On the face of things, the July 2016 murder of Seth Rich had intrigue enough for a full season of House of Cards.

Three days before the November election, Assange reportedly tells liberal media analyst Ellen Ratner that Rich was indeed his source.  Days after Trump’s inauguration, legendary investigative journalist Sy Hersh cites an FBI report confirming Assange’s claim.  Later that year, DNC honcho Donna Brazile dedicates her book Hacks to Rich and wonders out loud whether the Russians had “played some part in his unsolved murder.”
