It seems that Christine Assange, mother of Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, set the internet buzzing when she appeared to imply that murdered Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich was the person who leaked DNC emails and other documents to Wikileaks.
"Why did Julian publish damning docs against Hillary at such a crucial time which gave Humpty Dumpty Trump the upper hand?" Christine Assange was asked by a person on Twitter.
Assange replied "Its the duty of media to inform citizens about corruption," and added "a #DNC #Bernie supporter disgruntled with rigging leaked docs proving corruption."
"What should Wikileaks should have done?" she continued. "Hold on to them till after the election to advantage #Hillary? You are shooting the messenger!"
Many drew the conclusion, based on her comments, that the leaker was Seth Rich, though she never said that.
Still, her son, Jullian, all but indicated that Rich was the leaker.
Assange: Whistleblowers go to significant efforts to get us material and often significant risks. There was a 27-year old that works for the DNC who was shot in the back… murdered.. for unknown reasons as he was walking down the street in Washington.
Host: That was just a robbery wasn’t it?
Assange: No. There’s no finding.
Host: What are you suggesting?
Assange: I am suggesting that our sources take risks and they become concerned to see things occurring like that.
Host: But was he one of your sources, then?
Assange: We don’t comment on who our sources are.
Host: But why make the suggestion?
Assange: Because we have to understand how high the stakes are in the United States and that our sources face serious risks… that’s why they come to us so we can protect their anonymity.
Host: But it’s quite something to suggest a murder… that’s basically what you’re doing.
This seems to be an indication that Rich was the leaker. As we reported at the time:
On July 12, 2016, DNC staffer Seth Rich was murdered while reportedly walking home at 4am. Though robbery was initially suspected, Rich still had his wallet and watch when police arrived. The murder – one of five tied to the Clintons in the last six weeks – came in the midst of a massive email leak scandal involving Wikileaks, Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee.
Within hours of the event alternative media reporters began to suspect something was amiss, as police had no witnesses, no suspects and no motive. This led to theories that Rich, who was in charge of voter expansion data at the DNC, may have been killed to cover something up. Subsequent reports even suggested Rich may have been on his way to speak with special agents at the Federal Bureau of Investigation regarding an “ongoing court case.”
Though the reports were initially dismissed as conspiracy theory, perhaps the one person who could confirm that Rich was, in fact, a whistleblower may have just done so.
Yet, Assange's mother later deleted her tweet and wrote people had wrongfully asserted "Julians mother confirms its #SethRich."
As many are wrongfully asserting: "Julians mother confirms its #SethRich"

She followed it up with the fact that she claims to have met the person who leaked the documents.
Furthermore, she goes on to blast anyone that thinks it was the Russians and a hacking job. It was an inside job.

Many on Twitter wrongly proclaimed that she stated the Rich was the informant. However, let's backtrack with a few articles that seem to indicate that Rich was, in fact, the leaker.
- Wikileaks’ Julian Assange Implies Murdered DNC Staffer Seth Rich Was Wikileaks’ Informant
- Seth Rich Named As WikiLeaks’ Source, Not Russia — ‘Clinton Team Blocking Murder Investigation’
- Leaked Classified FBI Memo Shows Seth Rich Had DNC Emails On Laptop, Hints At WikiLeaks Ties
- Why Won’t The DNC Release Evidence Of Seth Rich’s Ties To Wikileaks?
- Attorney Who Sued DNC For Fraud Claims Seth Rich And Shawn Lucas Were Witnesses In His Case
I'll let the people be the judge of the facts, but all indicators point to the fact that Rich was the leaker and that he was murdered because of it.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook, Google Plus, & Twitter. You can also get Freedom Outpost delivered to your Amazon Kindle device here.
