There are some very big movements happening in the Seth Rich case. Actually, the big movements started last year, in April 2021, which we’ll get into. But the bottom line is this: based on a FOIA request, a federal judge stepped up and ordered the FBI to turn over Seth Rich’s laptop and everything they recovered regarding Rich’s laptop. This means we’ll finally get to see what Seth was doing before he died, and who he was communicating with.
Last year, Radar Online reported that new FBI documents reveal that Seth Rich’s death could have been a murder-for-hire plot. The death of the Democrat National Committee worker, who was shot dead on July 16, 2016, made headlines years ago after WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange suggested that Rich was the person who leaked internal DNC emails to WikiLeaks. While his murder has remained unsolved to this day, the FBI just released 68 pages regarding their investigation and the details are shocking.
The newly released files show Department of Justice officials met in 2018 to discuss Rich’s murder. They went as far as reviewing his financials and did not find anything eye-raising about his withdraws or deposits.
In addition, there was reportedly nothing unusual about his personal life that would lead to his random killing.
The documents allegedly show one witness who claims they saw someone walking away from the scene that night. The witness stated they saw Rich but didn’t alert the authorities because they thought he was drunk. It wasn’t until the next day when they saw the bloodstained sidewalk and police tape that they knew something bad happened.
The new documents also show that a person, whose name was heavily redacted, made off with Rich’s laptop. They revealed the FBI could not confirm whether that person deleted anything off Rich’s personal computer.
The FBI is now in possession of the said laptop.
Perhaps the most shocking new information from the documents read, “given [redacted] it is conceivable that an individual or group would want to pay for his death.”
According to news outlets, law enforcement has longtime suggested that Rich was the victim of a random burglary and that there was zero evidence to support his job had anything to do with his death.
Huddleston’s lawyer Ty Clevenger told The Epoch Times, this new information “shows that their whole narrative is falling apart.” Despite having more than 576 relevant documents concerning Rich, the FBI only produced 68 thus far but Clevenger says, “It’s a step in the right direction.”
Now, Radar is back once again with another bombshell. They’re reporting on the federal judge who ordered the FBI to turn over the laptop, and anything they found on it.
According to court documents obtained and reviewed by RadarOnline.com, the federal judge’s order on Thursday was the result of a five-year court battle between the FBI and Ty Clevenger, an attorney representing Plaintiff Brian Huddleston.
Huddleston first submitted a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to the FBI on September 1, 2017, in an effort to obtain information to help his investigation into Rich’s potential involvement in the DNC e-mail leaks that occurred in June 2016.
Although the FBI responded to Huddleston’s request two weeks later saying they were “unable to locate any responsive main files” in connection to Rich, it was later revealed the bureau was in possession of “over 20,000 pages of potentially relevant material.”
Of the 20,000 pages potentially relating to Rich, 1,596 pages were found to be directly related to the murdered DNC employee – although 1,496 of those were withheld due to a series of FOIA exemptions.
It was also revealed the FBI purposely withheld the content of Rich’s personal laptop due to privacy concerns for the late 27-year-old’s surviving family members – concerns the court rejected.
After years of legal back and forth between Huddleston and the FBI, the federal court ultimately ruled in Huddleston’s favor on Thursday.
“Accordingly, the Court finds the FBI improperly withheld this information under FOIA, and the Court is thus authorized to order its production,” the court’s order concluded.
The court’s order also comes more than five years since the FBI’s former director, Robert Mueller, confirmed Rich had no role in leaking the DNC’s emails in June 2016.
This has been a long hard battle, and thank goodness for Brian Huddleston and his attorney Ty Clevenger, who both had the dedication and passion to keep hunting for the truth.
Hopefully, very soon we will find out what role Seth Rich play in the 2016 election.
