Organizer of Seth Rich Vigil: "Seth Rich is Russia"


On Monday, vigils were held to mark the anniversary of the murder of DNC staffer Seth Rich, who was suspected of being the person who provided Wikileaks with a plethora of bombshell emails that rocked the Democratic National Committee in the summer of 2016 just ahead of its convention and the 2016 elections.  However, one woman who organized the vigil said that the reason for the concern about Rich’s murder is that with the continued fake narrative from the mainstream media and members of the Deep State that Russia was rigging US elections, people need to understand that “Seth Rich is Russia.”

In an exclusive interview with WND, “Kelly” (not her real name) said, “The ‘Russia-Trump [election] rigging’ story was a complete lie and fabricated – probably to deflect in part from the murder of Seth Rich.”

Kelly believes as I do that Rich was the email leaker.

“The whole Russian narrative was created to deflect,” she said. “Any time any of the Democratic Party’s crimes are uncovered, within 15 minutes a story pops up in the media to deflect from it.”

Kelly went on to elaborate on what the vigils were about.

“We believe it’s going to be a nice event for the ‘spirit of justice’ in Washington, D.C.,” she said. “We are seeking the support and feedback of the general population. We are not having speakers, so this isn’t about people grandstanding. There is no political agenda. It’s about a young man whose life was taken.”

Kelly and five other citizens met through social media to come up with a plan to bring attention to Rich’s murder.  The group worked for several weeks to bring attention to the murder.

“The case of Seth Rich crosses party lines. It’s about a young man who by all accounts was a great patriot who loved America,” she said. “The vigil is a gathering of people to stand for this young man, this patriot, who appears to have uncovered some pretty serious information about crime that was being committed. He did what was the right thing to bring that forth, and now he’s gone. Truth should never cost anything. It especially should not cost your life.”

Recently, even the fake news outlets have admitted that the Russian story is bogus, but they peddled their propaganda to the American people anyway.

Project Veritas released video of CNN Producer John Bonifield admitting that there is no proof to CNN’s Russia narrative.

“I mean, it’s mostly bullshit right now,” Bonifield said. “Like, we don’t have any giant proof.”

So, if it was BS, why did the network promote it as real news? Greed, and they think Americans are “stupid as sh**!”

“It’s a business, people are like the media has an ethical phssssss…,” Bonifield said.  “All the nice cutesy little ethics that used to get talked about in journalism school you’re just like, that’s adorable. That’s adorable. This is a business.”

If that weren’t enough, after that bust, CNN continued to have “anonymous sources” get busted for providing fake news about Trump and Russia.

As a result, the network has tanked so bad in ratings that even decades old reruns of Yogi Bear are doing better than CNN.  This is par for the course when it comes to CNN, as they have been engaged in fabricating stories for decades.

However, Project Veritas’ James O’Keefe has promised to expose more media companies besides CNN for putting out fake news.

“The Russian narrative, as has been proven was a complete lie, a complete fabrication. Most of us already knew that, but it was pushed so hard by every mainstream media channel,” said Kelly.  “Now that it’s been blown open, you would think there would dialogue about Seth Rich – those who have tried have been radically silenced.”

“Seth Rich is Russia,” Kelly added.  “He was bringing forth information that would take down some really high-level people and possibly the Democratic Party and, for that, we can only surmise, he’s no longer here.”

Not surprising, Kelly said that she and others have reached out to GOP leadership regarding Rich’s murder, but they don’t seem interested.

“We reached out to the heavy hitters in the conservative movement – we’ve actually been shocked by the lack of enthusiasm or interest in our vigil – and it’s a silent vigil,” Kelly explained. “It’s not about personalities or people getting media attention; it’s about drawing attention to this young man.”

While some yawn at this story as they did the Obama eligibility story, the fact is that it is important and may have answers that people just don’t want to hear because it might threaten their view of the US government or their favorite political idols.

“It doesn’t make sense … to regular Americans why this story is such a hot-button [issue],” said Kelly. “If people mention it or a discussion starts around it, it’s immediately silenced. Anybody who has a political pulse saw what happened to Sean Hannity. He almost lost his career when he started speaking out about the investigation and the questions that surround it. He was vilified; it was actually kind of frightening.”

Hannity lost a lot of advertisers for his continued reporting on Seth Rich.

Kelly questions why the DNC is not as interested in finding one of their employee’s killers as those who didn’t even know him.

“I don’t think any of us that have read the basic facts of the case, have ever heard of an employer, especially one with the power of the DNC, who has done less for one of its employees,” Kelly said. “I don’t think we could see less interest or compassion from the DNC to try to find out what happened and find the truth.

“Why wouldn’t they be trying to find the killer?” she asked.  “Why wouldn’t this be a topic that they want to be on the forefront?”

So far, there is more than $130,000 in reward money for anyone who can bring information that leads to an arrest and conviction of Rich’s murderers.  At least two investigators continue to look into the case and seek to find out the truth regarding who committed the murder and what their motive was.  One recent 48-page report indicates that Rich was murdered by a “hired killer,” and an eyewitness claims that Rich never even knew he was shot.

A petition calling on the White House to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate Rich’s murder closed in June and failed to reach the 100,000 signature goal in order for the White House to respond to it.

Seth Rich was gunned down in DC in June 2016 just prior to Wikileaks releasing tens of thousands of DNC emails, including those of Clinton campaign manager John Podesta.

Candlelight vigils were held on Monday in New York City, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Austin, St. Louis, Miami, Louisville, Detroit, San Diego, Cleveland and Washington, D.C.
