A Washington, D.C. lobbyist and attorney Jack Burkman filed a lawsuit Wednesday to force the Washington, D.C. Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) to release information regarding the murder of Democratic National Committee (DNC) staffer Seth Rich.
Like most of us, D.C. Attorney Burkman, would like to bring closure to the case and death of Seth Rich. Seth Rich, 27, a DNC staffer who was shot twice in the back, transported to the hospital and later died. Hopefully, with the release of crucial evidence we can confirm or deny the theories behind this murder case.
H/T Western Journalism:
A lawsuit is being filed against the Washington, D.C. Metropolitan Police Department seeking the release of information regarding the July murder of Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich.
“The release of this crucial material will help bring peace to the victim’s family, and it will help to either confirm or refute the various theories that swirl about this important murder case,” said the suit being filed by lobbyist and attorney Jack Burkman.
News of the suit was first reported Tuesday by The Daily Caller.
Rich was found shot to death July 10, 2016. Police have said they believe he was the victim of a “botched robbery”. After Rich’s death, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange implied but never directly stated that Rich was a source for the DNC emails that WikiLeaks posted, leading to questions that still linger over a connection Rich’s family denies ever existed.
Burkman claims the police have “shut down all full operations.”
“The police are not cooperating with us or anyone, which is sad,” he said. “This has become a very systematic and deliberate effort by the D.C. police and the mayor to end the Seth Rich investigation.”
Burkman wants police to release video footage of the murder, along with the medical examiner’s report and ballistic reports related to the weapon used to shoot Rich.
“We believe there is additional security footage that we need to see,” Burkman said. “There is other video that the police have that we need to see. We need ballistics from them — we need a lot from them. We think the police are now deliberately concealing an awful lot of stuff in an effort to shut this investigation down. I have been very patient and favorable to the D.C. police, but it’s time to shine the light on what they’re doing.”
Police spokesmen had little to say in reply.
“We don’t want this investigation playing out in the press,” one MPD spokeswoman said.
“MPD does not entertain conspiracy theories and does not engage with conspiracy theorists,” a statement from MPD’s Karimah Bilal said.
Rich’s family is still waiting for answers.
“While the family still have confidence in the Metropolitan Police Department’s ability to investigate Seth’s murder, of course, they are frustrated with the lack of evidence, leads and credible information about the case,” said Brad Bauman, a spokesman for the family. “They desperately want to find Seth’s murderers and bring them to justice as quickly as possible.”
Burkman said closure begins with getting to the truth.
The TRUTH! Doesn’t seem like anyone in the MSM, the DNC, the Clinton campaign or the MPD are interested in that though, does it? Afterall, if it TRULY was a “botched robbery” why would NOTHING be taken? I do mean nothing – not Seth’s watch, not his phone, not his wallet, not his credit cards, not his cash, not his $2000 necklace – NOTHING! Do you STILL want to believe that the MPD that it was a ‘botched robbery’. Come on man!
Seth Rich was ALIVE when the MPD found him. Five officers happen to be in the area. Three of those officers even wore BODYCAMS! The streets Seth Rich walked down had cameras too, probably 10-20 cameras were visible. Seth Rich’s phone and computer were taken as evidence. Not real clear who has all this evidence, but it’s either MPD or the FBI.
Guess who’s brother is connected? Former DNC’s Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s brother, Steven Wasserman, is the Assistant US Attorney at the Attorney’s office for the District of Columbia. Questions are arising whether Steven has played a part in burying the Seth Rich.
It seems like ANYONE these days connected to the DNC that discovers anything to do with voter fraud…doesn’t seem to get too far. Just look at a few examples: Seth Rich, Shawn Lucas, or Beranton J. Whisenant Jr., 37, a recent federal prosecutor killed in Debbie ‘Blabbermouth’s’ district. All young men found to working or involved with cases related to the DNC and voter fraud. It seems to be a pretty risky business wouldn’t you say? So risky, in fact, none of them lived to talk about it!
Do you really STILL believe the ‘Russians did it’. Seth Rich IS the DNC leak. Without Seth, there is no hacking story. There is no Russian alibi.
Of course, don’t ask me, ask former DNC’s Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s brother, Steven Wasserman, the Assistant US Attorney at the Attorney’s office for the District of Columbia. Ask Debbie Wasserman Schultz who gave access to her phone and computer, along with 80 other Democrats to the Awan brothers who had high security clearance, who seemed to have conveniently run off to Pakistan. Ask John Podesta who left his password as ‘Password123’ on his computer. Ask Hillary Clinton who had a very unsecure server set up in her basement by Bryan Pagliano in her Chappaqua NY home. Ask Nathaniel Pearlman of the NGP Software or NVP Van – the company that ‘allegedly patched the problem’ of the DNC servers that were both bad and very weak in security. Or you can ask Donna Brazile who asked why an investigator was ‘snooping around’ in the Seth Rich case. I’m sure there’s a lot more we could ask. The point is, I think there’s enough evidence and enough witnesses don’t you? The real question is: …Does the DNC really want the public to know the truth?
