A Brief Note on the Seth Rich / Kim Dotcom Story : Is He Just Looking for Political Asylum?

by Scott Creighton

When the Seth Rich/Rod Wheeler story broke, I covered it but I also made mention of the fact that the timing was quite suspect (right as a new fake leak came out about Trump) as was the source.

Rod Wheeler has a less-than stellar background when it comes to news items having once gone on Fox News to alert their viewers that 150 lesbian gangs were raging through D.C. with pink handguns, kidnapping and raping your children in hopes it would turn them gay.

Needless too say, I don’t put a great deal of stock in his journalism.

But, if it is the case that the Metro Police and the FBI confiscated a laptop they have not returned, that is an issue that must be resolved. The fact that Rod never claimed to see these emails himself is also troubling to me just as the New York Times making claims about James Comey memos they have never seen is also troubling. To me, it’s hard to take either claim seriously.

Far too many so-called “alternative” journalists are out there attacking the Wheeler claim and anyone who reports on it. They call them “charlatans” because CNN supposedly has an email from Rod Wheeler… which of course, CNN isn’t making public.

I covered the story briefly when it first broke and have left it alone ever since and I did that for a number of reasons, but primarily because of what I just wrote. Wheeler’s history and the fact that he claims to have “sources” and has never seen the emails he reported on as fact. Way too many variables in that for me to take seriously… but again… those who condemn this story while for those reasons while reporting on the validity of the Comey farce are worse than hypocrites… and I am talking to you Young Turks and especially you Michael Tracy… you should damn well know better.

Turns out Rod Wheeler was paid for his contract by another Fox News personality. Some republican business guy who does reports for their business channel (though he now claims he didn’t pay him)

And, as it turns out, the family’s spokesperson who initially denied the Wheeler story, is a DNC public relations contractor who has worked with various candidates of theirs for years. And on top of that, his original denial was worded in such a way as too say “even if there were emails between Seth and Wikileaks, that doesn’t prove anything and they could be fakes”

That led me to believe someone figured there certainly could be some surfacing in the future… which led me to believe that someone was worried the laptop may actually exist.

Why does the family of a random murder victim need a spokesperson in the first place and why did they just happen to pick a spin doctor associated with the DNC?

Why did a republican businessman hire a hack like Rod Wheeler to “investigate” Seth’s death and why the curious timing of this “news” release?

It all seems very contrived to me.

And speaking of contrived…

Now Kim Dotcom has thrown his hat in the ring saying he knew Seth Rich and has evidence that will prove Seth was in contact with Wikileaks. CNN is currently attacking Dotcom while the purveyors of Rod Wheeler’s “breaking news” are trumpeting this latest development as if it’s some kind of huge deal.

It looks to me like Kim Dotcom is looking to make himself the next Jillian Assange. He’s probably shopping embassies in New Zealand right now hoping one of them will offer him asylum since he is supposedly in possession of some kind of “leak”. What he probably wants is protection from extradition to the U.S. to face charges and he figures he can try this move to see if it works.

Let me say this to the H.A. Goodmans out there: a retweet from Julian Assange is not proof of anything. Nor is Wikileaks’ reward offer. This is meaningless drivel. Had Wikileaks been in direct contact with Seth Rich, they would have released the emails by now. Don’t you think?

Just like if there had been real evidence of collusion between Trump and the Russians, we would have seen that by now as well. This is WWE shit. Nothing more.

And you guys are part of it.

Kim Dotcom is the Barnum and Bailey of the internet. He’s an opportunist showman who once claimed he hacked Citibank and gave 20 million bucks to GreenPeace… only.. he didn’t.

Kim Dotcom is a sleazebag self promoter. This is the kind of shit he’s done:


He’s a scumbag who ran a number of internet start-up schemes and was busted for insider trading on them. Kinda like the plot of the Wolf of Wall Street. Then he set up a pyramid scheme to sucker in wanna-be movers and shakers. He called it Kimpire.

He’s a sleazebag like Wheeler is. The only difference is, Kim Dotcom is facing extradition to the United States and would appear to be willing to do anything to avoid jail time.

I will say this though… he is right on this count:

All that said, he is promising a “big reveal” on Tuesday and I will be interested in seeing what he produces. And there is good reason for that but it has nothing to do with this guy’s credibility, which is nil in my opinion.

There is a war going on inside the Deep State. Would they feed this clown something tasty that could distract from real stories taking place right now? Did one of them feed something to Rod Wheeler to use him to distract from the Trump destabilization campaign last week? I don’t know.

I kinda doubt it. But it seems odd that Dotcom would make up something baseless right now as he is trying to appeal his extradition to the U.S…. unless of course he figures it could be used to garner him some kind of asylum due to his fear of political prosecution as reprisal for his Seth Rich story (which seems pretty plausible for a Kim Dotcom move)

So it could be someone fed him something in order to stir the pot with this Clinton/Rich story.

Could be he’s just trying to add to his diminishing online brand as he has a long history of doing.

And it could be he figures if he gets himself intertwined in this situation, he might be able to parlay it into some kind of “get out of a U.S. jail for free” card.

We will have to wait and see.

I am not going to hold my breath or stake my reputation on it either way. Seth was certainly killed for a reason and we know the Russians didn’t hack the DNC, those files were leaked by someone.

In all honesty, Wikileaks and Assange could very easily be using the Seth Rich story to protect a real leaker and in so doing, they offered up the reward to further the speculation and as a kind of apology to the family of Rich.

We know Assange and Wikileaks are Deep State assets themselves so it’s kind of difficult to make any assumptions about their motives. But if Seth had been in direct contact with them or if the 3rd party guy (who also just happens to be dead now) ever mentioned Seth by name as the source to Wikileaks, you can bet your bottom dollar we would have seen those emails leaked at this point.

What happened to Seth Rich was horrible and I for one believe there is a motive that goes way beyond a failed robbery.

One thing that is certainly possible is he was about to leak proof of election fraud. After all, analyzing election data was his job at the DNC.

Regardless of that there is one other interesting aspect to his case which I just discovered: out of 67 unsolved murders in the Metro D.C. area last year… Seth Rich was the only Caucasian who’s death remains unsolved.

I don’t’ mean for that to be racist, but it is an interesting statistic, is it not? There are a lot of white folks running around D.C. and I’m sure a number of them get murdered every year. Yet Seth is the only one of all of them who’s murder is still unsolved? And it was a botched robbery in a well-off neighborhood with lots of street-side security cameras? At 4am when hardly no one other than the shooter(s) would be leaving the scene?

Anyway you look at it, Seth is but one of 67 un-avenged murders in that city in 2016 and that’s a lot in my opinion. Lot of families without closure. Seth’s is but one.

I wonder how many of the others have DNC spin doctors serving as their spokesman.

You can check out Seth’s flyer here. If you have information please contact the police.. not Kim Dotcom or Wikileaks.

I don’t know what this Kim Dotcom thing is. Probably nothing more than a publicity stunt or some opportunistic move on his part to keep his fat ass out of jail. Guess we will see on Tuesday. If he comes out with something solid, that’s one thing. If he announces an asylum deal with Ecuador, that’s another. I guess only time will tell.

Either way, Seth Rich’s family has still not been given closure on their loss and the mystery remains surrounding his murder.

Let’s hope Kim isn’t as much of a scumbag as I think he is.

  1. A sad event.
    Shot in the back…. probably by someone in that car.

  2. The only thing I disagree with is your view that Wiki offering a reward, and retweeting something that specific- doesn’t verify that Seth Rich was the leak. Julian can never directly reveal who the leak is – because it could endanger Rich’s family, and prevent future whistleblowers from coming forward. But this is as close to SHOUTING it out loud as is possible. Why and how would Julian even KNOW about Seth Rich ( a mid-level data guy in the DNC) – and why would a reward be offered for any information leading to the arrest of Seth Rich’s murderers – by Wiki? They’ve never done that in their entire history. It’s very clear those two anomalies can only be explained by the fact that Rich was the leak – he is the smoking gun.

    • I disagree. I think they are doing just enough to allow people to come to that conclusion themselves without actually saying it. That’s highly suspect to me. If they know for a fact he was the leaker and someone killed him for it, they should come right out and say it and provide proof. Why would that potentially endanger the family? What sense does that make? Someone is going to attack a third party because Seth did something and some other party has shown it to be true? Why? It’s not like they can kill him twice and it would certainly help promote moving the direction of the investigation in a new, more productive direction. In fact, I the more I think about it… were they to know he was the leaker, wouldn’t they take their info to the police? Because if they didn’t wouldn’t that make them accessories after the fact for withholding evidence? And if they did that, how the hell could they release info like they are suggesting a possible motive for the murder if they know the police are actively investigating that possibility? No. It doesn’t make sense unless they know the police are deliberately trying to cover it up themselves and in that case, of course they should release everything they have, not just insinuate something.

  3. Thanks, Scott.
    Do you think the behavior of Wikileaks has anything to do with the fact that the Swedes have dropped charges against Assange?

  4. Well, I guess we have indeed entered the “wilderness of mirrors”.

  5. How sad that opportunists are willing to profit off personal tragedies.
