WikiLeaks still taking murder of DNC staffer ‘very seriously,’ refer to him as ‘alleged source’

Wikileaks founder Julian Assange appeared on Fox News’ “The Kelly File” and gave his strongest hint yet that a murdered DNC staffer may have leaked information.

Seth Rich, a 27-year-old DNC Voter Expansion Data Director, was shot and killed on the streets of Washington D.C. on July 10. He was not robbed.

WikiLeaks has offered a $20,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the killer, leading many to wonder if Rich was the person who leaked the emails that showed the DNC rigged the primary for Hillary Clinton.

On Thursday’s “Kelly File” Assange referred to Rich as a “potential” and “alleged” source.

“We’re very interested in anything that might be a threat to alleged WikiLeak sources,” he told Megyn Kelly. “We’re not saying that Seth Rich’s death necessarily is connected to our publication. That’s something that has to be established. But if there’s any question about a source of WikiLeaks being threatened, then people can be assured that this organization will go after anyone who may have been involved in some kind of attempt to coerce or possibly, in this case, kill a potential source.”

Kelly said it sounded as though Assange was asserting that Rich was a WikiLeaks source who was murdered.

“If there’s someone who’s potentially connected to our publication, and that person has been murdered in suspicious circumstances, it doesn’t necessarily mean that the two are connected,” he said. “But it is a very serious matter … That type of allegation is very serious, and it’s taken very seriously by us.”
