What led to Seth Rich a DNC staffer, a voter expansion data director being shot dead? A case of a botched robbery or a marked target?

Seth Rich a rising Democratic National Committee employee has died after being shot this weekend, a block from his brownstone home, with whom he shared with three or four roommates.

The 27 year old aspiring Democratic politician’s death comes after Seth Conrad Rich had worked as the voter expansion data director at the DNC for more than two years according to a report via NBC Washington.

The attack occurred Sunday at about 4.20 am on a residential street in the Bloomingdale neighborhood in northwestern Washington D.C.

According to one of the roommates, it is thought that Rich may have been walking home after visiting his girlfriend earlier that evening.

Seth Rich’s shooting death according to abcnews was the District of Columbia’s 68th homicide of 2016. To date this year, the area of Bloomingdale has had 20 reported robberies in the neighborhood. While police said there is no indication that robbery was a motive, it’s being considered.

During a Monday morning press conference acting Capt. Anthony Haythe of the Metropolitan Police Department’s homicide unit, told Seth Rich was shot several times, struck at least once in the back.

Police said they heard gunshots while patrolling the area. Seth Rich was found conscious and breathing at the scene. Yet despite being rushed to hospital would fatally succumb to his injuries less than an hour later.

‘Our hearts are broken with the loss of one of our DNC family members over the weekend. Seth Rich was a dedicated, selfless public servant who worked tirelessly to protect the most sacred right we share as Americans — the right to vote,’ DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz said in a statement via the Washington Post.

Adding: ‘He saw the great potential of our nation and believed that, together, we can make the world a better place. He was a joy to have as a member of our team, and his talents, intelligence and enthusiasm will be deeply missed by the many friends, colleagues and co-workers who worked by his side in service to the highest ideals of our democracy.’

‘We send our deepest heartfelt sympathies to Seth’s family, and we will keep them in our thoughts and prayers as we try to pick up the pieces and carry on the work that was so important to Seth and to us.’

According to his LinkedIn page, Rich graduated in 2011 from Creighton University in Omaha, Nebraska with a bachelor’s degree in political science, public policy and history. He previously had a job with the U.S. Census Bureau and worked in local politics in Nebraska, including a stint on former U.S. senator Ben Nelson’s (D-Neb.) reelection campaign.

Ironically, one of Seth’s last facebook posts included the aspiring politician posting an appeal for an end to gun violence.

Wrote Seth on Friday: ‘I reiterate back to people stop hating each other. Too much pain to process.

‘We have to be better and defend each other more true.

‘A life is exponentially valuable. I have family and friends on both sides of the law.

‘Please, stop killing each other.’

Told Seth Rich’s father, Joel, 68: ‘He wanted to make a difference,’

‘Politics was in his blood.’

Police have no witnesses and are searching the area for surveillance video footage. To date, no suspects have been noted, nor any arrests have been made, with police reaching out to the public for more information. A reward of up to $25,000 is being offered.

Of question is who and if anyone would have wanted Seth Rogers dead and if so, why?

Anyone with information about the attack is asked to call police on 202-727-9099.

    Ah so, I see your point.
    It’s the backroom deals that really count, especially if someone is on Hellary’s “hit list.”

  • Mystyle

    I just heard on Rush Limbaugh there are 3 similar deaths reported recently having to do with the same M.O. as Seth. This gets very interesting, however I am sure murder is of little significance to progressives who totally cherish the mindmaster.

  • Mystyle

    That in itself is interesting. Or, maybe they do and they are keeping it close. When a crime does not appear to have an M.O. there is usually a rat in the woodpile.

  • leslymill

    Cause the police don’t have anything maybe.

  • Gurdy Bean

    Well its no secret the dead bodies that surround Clinton, and Trump could well be in their crosshairs. But even the establishment has been dead set against Trump, Pence, another establishment globalist, is what they want as a president. So if Trump wins over Hillary (something establishment R’s do NOT want) then with Pence, they can take out Trump and have their globalist anyways. Think JFK….

    Remember Reagans assassination attempt? Remember how hated he was by the establishment? Remember who would have become president if the assassination had happened?

    I know, big conspiracy theory there, but think about it.

  • Robert Johnson

    Please elaborate, as there is a story in there somewhere.

  • Robert Johnson

    For those of you that are too young to know this, there is a long list of dead people that have had “something” on the Clintons & were going to spill the beans. This list starts in a little state called Arkansas when Slick Willy was governor.
    Coincidence? I think not, as there are just too many people that wind-up-dead after having had the pleasure of making their acquaintance.
    That number is currently around 50.

  • Mystyle

    OH NO!

  • Gurdy Bean

    And w/ Pence as VP pick, probable odds went up for an assassination attempt, from both parties, not just dems.

    This is meant as a joke, right? Trump?

    OMG I know it would be called a conspiracy theory, but I worry about Trump. These people are capable of anything to get their way.

  • raven6

    The action was a hit.

  • raven6

    WEll, one should not. As an analyst, he was assassinated. An article from Whatdoesitmeandotcomnoted he had found ( pay to play ) information in his work as data director. Second, one the phone with his GF, he saw his killers and was not concerned. Either thay were dressed as officers, or in suits. Third, he was beaten, ( to pretend robbery ) then shot in the back as well as chest. Fourth, the street is narrow, so unless silenced, the weapon would have echoed for blocks. This was a hit. Oh, IMO.

    I have heard nothing about this on the main (lame) stream media not even FOX or any commentators such as Rush, Hannity, The Blaze, nothing. Why? Have they just not gotten to it yet what with Dallas. Can’t hardly believe that.

  • Another dead? Eh? It’s nothing. Move on. Random senseless violence.

  • Brigid

    Pretty amazing that on every news article about Seth Rich, commenters are posting the same speculation. That this is another person set to testify against the Clinton machine, and yet another person who has mysteriously turned up dead. Including the death of U.N. official John Ashe, who was set to testify about his role in the Charlie Trie campaign donation crime ring, amounts of money that went into about a billion dollars. Even the NY Post, a mainstream outlet, noted that doing business with or working for the Clintons can be “hazardous to one’s health.” Who else has ever had dealings with nearly 50 people that died at all, some of whom were murdered, no less? Who else knows someone who was decapitated yet the death was ruled natural cause? This stuff is all common knowledge amongst the people, yet James Comey made it clear to all of us: our government will not do a thing, ever. Not even a week after Comey’s congressional testimony, none of which made any logical sense just like his surreal press conference, a black congresswoman from Florida was indicted on 25 counts of fraud to do with her charity. Guilty probably, but the dollar amounts were chump change compared to the Clinton Foundation. The congresswoman didn’t cut deals to sell uranium, that’s for sure.

  • NotDrinkingTheKoolaid

    Might he have been a little too knowledgeable and disagreeable about upcoming election fraud?

  • Kate T’loh

    Don’t worry. The Park Police are on the job!

  • albermarle19

    There is a pattern here that ppl just don’t seem to get. If you cross the Clinton’s, you get burned!
    Seth was about to expose the shanannigans that the DNC is up to: every new voter who completes a voter registration card, unknown to that person, has 2-3 more voters registered under a mispelled version of the original applicant’s name! E.G. Sally Bright” = Sally Bight, Sally Brite, Sally Brigth, etc. Then the aliases vote for Hillary. I’ve seen it done!

  • PERS ponzi 1st repsonders
  • Michael Edward Carey

    another DNC Clinton murder. The queen has stuck again to protect their voter fraud

  • Mike Bass

    This needs an investigation that is much wider than a robbery.
    1. What exactly was his job?
    2. Did he have anything to do with dealing with voter registration irregularities that seem to have magically exploded by the millions this year?
    3. Dump his phone and email records

    Bottom line, I would not put anything past the Clinton team and coincidences early happen
