Assange admitted during a live TV interview that his informant for the DNC email scandal was in fact the staffer murdered on July 10, Seth Rich. According to sources Seth was on his way to the FBI with information on the Clinton investigation the night he was murdered.
In July, a Democratic National Committee staffer named Seth Rich was gunned down in the Bloomingdale neighborhood of northwest D.C. The police said his murder may have been the result of a robbery.
Now, however, Wikileaks founder Julian Assange is saying there is more to the story.
In an interview with a Dutch media outlet known as Nieuwsuur on Tuesday, Assange admitted that Rich, a staffer in the voter data department of the DNC, was Wikileak’ssource within the organization.
In recent weeks, Wikileaks has released a torrent of information from inside the DNC — from emails to memos to voicemails — that has resulted in the resignation of top party officials, including Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz. According to Assange, Rich arranged a large portion of this information.
