Donna Brazile Busted Trying To Shut Down Seth Rich Murder Investigation

Donna Brazile is the senior Democrat who tried to shut down the Seth Rich murder investigation, according to private detective Rod Wheeler.

Disgraced former Democratic National Committee chairwoman Donna Brazile is the senior DNC figure who called police and hassled the family of murdered DNC staffer Seth Rich, demanding to know why a private investigator was “snooping” into Rich’s murder case.

Donna Brazile is famous for being fired by CNN and forced to stand down as interim chairwoman of the DNC after it was revealed by WikiLeaks that she gave key questions to Hillary Clinton in advance of a CNN town hall debate with rival Bernie Sanders.

She then further disgraced herself by claiming that there were fakes mixed in with genuine emails released by WikiLeaks – a claim that was shown to be false.

Now the serial cheat and liar is back in hot water after Rod Wheeler, the private detective investigating the Seth Rich case due to a lack of progress made by D.C. police, called her out as the senior DNC official who tried to throw him off the case and stop the investigation into the DNC staffer’s murder.

The high-ranking DNC official that called the police after I inquired about Rich’s case was Donna Brazile,” veteran homicide detective Rod Wheeler told WND. “Why shouldn’t I reveal who it was?

WND reports: Rich was murdered July 10, 2016, near his affluent neighborhood in Washington, D.C. He was shot in the back with a handgun at 4:18 a.m. while he walked home, and nothing was taken from him. He was transported to a local hospital and was pronounced dead at 5:57 a.m. On July 22, just 12 days after Rich’s death and days before the Democratic Party Convention in Philadelphia, WikiLeaks released 20,000 emails from DNC officials.

Wheeler said in several interviews last week that a federal investigator has elaborate details about Rich’s connection to WikiLeaks and is a credible source.

I don’t like to suggest things without saying the person’s name, but I can’t say that person’s name, because that person would be thrown under the bus,” Wheeler told Fox News’ Sean Hannity. “This person, we checked him out, we have to check him out, he’s very credible – he said he laid eyes on the computer and he laid eyes on the case file.

When you look at that with the totality of everything else that I’ve found on this case, it’s very consistent for a person with my experience to begin to think, perhaps there were some email communications between Seth and WikiLeaks.”

Wheeler told Hannity: “There were some problems that Seth was having on his job at the DNC right before he was killed. And the person that called the father after I called the police to get information (Brazile), that’s the person that Seth was having problems with at the DNC. So connect the dots, here; it’s starting to all come together.”

Wheeler initially refrained from revealing the identity of the DNC official who called the Rich family to inquire about the detective’s “snooping,” but he said he felt less compelled to stay quiet about Brazile’s identity after what he believed to be an unrelenting assassination of his character by the Rich family’s spokesman.

The spokesman, Democratic political crisis consultant Brad Bauman, excoriated Wheeler for not eliminating the possibility that Rich leaked emails, accusing the veteran detective of fabricating his claims in a desperate attempt for media attention.

I don’t think at this point, given Detective Wheeler’s lack of credibility – that I am going to dignify any accusations that he makes with any sort of discussion, I’m sorry,” he told WND.

He added that anyone who believes Rich may have leaked DNC e-mails “deserve(s) a place in hell.

While Wheeler has concluded – after months of extensive investigation – the idea that Rich was killed during a robbery is implausible, he maintains that his motivation to solve the case and find Rich’s murderer has nothing to do with politics.

I hope people understand this – I am not involved at all with the political side of any of this stuff – I am really not. My one focus is on finding a murderer,” he told WND. “That is my only focus.

Now if that murderer is a neighborhood knucklehead who had a gun and killed him that night, then that is who I want to capture,” he said. “Then the story ends for me when I find him. If that murderer is someone who worked with him on his job, then that is who I want to capture.

Brazile called the possibility that Rich leaked DNC emails “shameful” on Sunday.

Seth Rich was a hard worker and proud to be an American. This desire to scar Seth’s legacy to his country and party is shameful,” the former DNC chair tweeted.

While critics dismiss the idea that Rich’s murder might be linked to the DNC in the midst of a highly contentious presidential campaign as “conspiracy” and “fake news,” talk-radio host Rush Limbaugh on Monday said Americans are determined to uncover the truth about Rich’s murder.

“This story is now starting to get legs, that Seth Rich was murdered. It was [allegedly] a contract hire killing because he was leaking to WikiLeaks. He was the one – he may have been a Bernie supporter – and the only colluding and rigging here, folks, is the Democrat primary election,” Limbaugh said. “KimDotCom, the noted hacker, has now come forward and said he was working with Seth Rich to get the documents to WikiLeaks.

Right now it’s conspiracy-theory status. But it won’t go away. It just won’t go away. That’s about as much as I can say right now.”

Kim Dotcom is the Twitter handle for the hacker described as an “entrepreneur, innovator, gamer, artist, Internet freedom fighter & father of 5.” He is a German-Finnish Internet entrepreneur who founded Megaupload. On May 20, “Kim Dotcom” tweeted: “I knew Seth Rich. I know he was the @Wikileaks source. I was involved.


In another tweet on the same day, he wrote: “I’m meeting my legal team on Monday. I will issue a statement about #SethRich on Tuesday. Please be patient. This needs to be done properly.”

On Sunday, Hannity called on Congress to get to the bottom of Rich’s murder.

In a Twitter response to Kim Dotcom that received nearly 19,000 “likes,” Hannity wrote: “Congress, investigate Seth Rich Murder! @JulianAssange made comments u need to listen to! If Seth was wiki source, no Trump/Russia collusion.”

    Why would top DNC officials not want the MURDER of a staffer they presumably knew personally investigated to the end?

    • Truth

      Because they know who did it.

      • Earlene Hammond

        I think they hired who did it!

    • rrjames

      Because they’re guilty of that murder and many others, silly!

  • Eli

    She was fired. So, what is she doing telling the police what to do? Was she fired or was she not?
    What authority does she have to shut down any investigation, and why would the police be intimidated by her?

    • Truth

      The police would be intimidated by her because they know who she works for. Yes, she was fired by CNN.

      • Earlene Hammond

        How sad is that? If our police departments are that intimidated by corrupt people like the Clintons, then apparently our country has purposely become nothing but an anarchy being controlled by the oligarchy!

    • Earlene Hammond

      Podesta wouldn’t care, he probably put her up to it. They are as tight as thieves, which all of them are anyway, with their lying, greedy corruption, and thinking that our laws don’t apply to them! Bleeding the coffers of the DNC dry for HRC and her duplicitous campaign and massive election fraud! They all make me so sick because they are not true representatives of the American public, and don’t give a damn about our country or the struggling citizens who voted to elect Bernie who was the true winner of the Dem primaries, but had it stolen from him by these crooks who chose to ignore the voters, as well as their needs, so they could continue all their illegal activities, such as laundering illegal funds “donated” to the Clinton Foundation NOT for the purpose of being charitable!

    Obviously the Democratic National Committee is sitting on the family with their PR consultant and others and using the family to aid in shutting down investigations and media on Seth’s murder.
    This is another level of the cover-up going on.

  • Meggie

    Her comment that Rich was “proud to be an American’ is really disgusting. The suggestion that anybody who wanted to reveal the sleazy emails is not a good American tells us a lot about the current state of the DNC and the people who run it

  • Truth

    So, Donna B has problems at work with Seth. Seth then gets murdered. Afterwards Donna calls the family and questions father hiring his own investigator? Sounds like she was upset and panicking. Maybe she informed someone that family believed story and all taken care of? Was she trying to once again protect Hillary??

    • Earlene Hammond

      Of course she was, just like DWS!

  • rrjames

    How in the world does such a blatantly famously corrupt rat as Brazille have any influence whatsoever?

    • Earlene Hammond

      That is what I would like to know, as well! She should be out on her ass, just like DWS and many others! They don’t deserve to be called representatives of the people! They really only represent their own greedy and corrupt agendas!

  • Seth_Rich

    The amount of effort going into burying this story is monumental.

    • Tony Johnson

      Reaching the level of JFK assassination evidence

  • Jacques Devin

    The DNC is trying to bury the truth along with Seth Rich, where is Jeff Sessions ???

    • Gil Favor

      somewhere down south, , chasin’ pot-heads with the DEA. . . . . . .

  • StevenRobert

    This is getting riled up with Brazile’s book which said she was afraid after Seth Rich’s death, closed blinds.
    Apparently tweet by Drudge.
    Probably needs to be opened up again.
    If there was some kind of illegality going on in DNC, congress needs to investigate.
    Was Seth Rich’s computer taken into custody as evidence?
    Is there compatibility between what was in the Wikileaks downloads and Seth Rich’s computer?
    What did the DC police Dept. do to investigate the Seth Rich murder?
    Could Wikileaks founder Julian Assange be given immunity to testify as to source of the Wikileaks materials, or immunity from prosecution to come to the US to testify, or testify via deposition where he is holed up in the Ecuador embassy in London?
    Julian Assange may be privy to information which would be pertinent to a murder investigation in the US.
