Seth Rich and Julian Assange traded emails prior to Clinton data release. No Russians involved

Revelations came out on Good Friday that the NSA has 32 pages of communications between Julian Assange and Seth Rich, the former Democratic National Committee employee who was murder in Washington DC.

In what authorities call a robbery Rich was shot and killed on July 10, 2016, at 4:20 am. However his wallet, phone and other personal items were all still in his possession.

While Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report continues with the narrative that the Clinton emails were hacked by the Russians and given to Assange’s Wikileaks, this revelation of previous contact between the two suggests there was no intermediary.

It’s very easy to explain why Mueller held fast to the Russian hack narrative. If Russia didn’t provide the Clinton emails, then how could there be collusion between them and the Trump campaign?

And yet the Assange indictment that the US is using to extradite Assange back to the US has nothing to do with the publishing of the Clinton emails. The one charge stems back to aiding then-Bradley Manning to access a computer password.

In a Freedom of Information request the NSA said they have these classified files of correspondence between Assange and Rich, but cannot release them due to sensitive information contained in the conversations. Assange has never publicly stated how he received the emails.

This release of information by the NSA is the first evidence to prove that Assange and Rich knew each other and had a running dialog.

In another development, now-retired NSA super sleuth William Binney gives further testimony confirming that it was not a Russian hack, but the download of emails was done locally by sticking a thumb drive in a computer.

The data transfer rate of the emails showed that the hackers would have required a gigabit line across the Atlantic. There is no such robust line able to transfer data at that speed going to Europe and/or Russia from the US. The quickest data transfer speed roughly 25 percent of the transfer rate required.

As a long-time newsman, it is always interesting to see what information comes out just prior to a holiday. It is the perfect time to attempt to bury bad news when only a few are watching.

Fortunately this burial on Good Friday also came to life over Easter weekend.

  1. Keep the information flowing, Michael!!! Jason Goodman did a good “Nothing Burger” interview with two great guys which shows the extent of the corruption at the Top Levels. What drew my attention at about 45 min. in, was the statement that we could be going the same way as South Africa……the exact same thing Dr. Harry Booyens told Sarah Westall in his interview with her about his book, “AmaBhulu”!! Here’s to our Wrecking Ball…..may he continue to smash things up!!!
