Second death with a DNC connection

Now the death of Rich is being compared to the mysterious death of an attorney who filed suit against the DNC on June 28. On August 7th, the attorney, Shawn Lucas, was found dead in his bathroom and officials have not released a cause of death. The belief is that both men have died due to their connection to the DNC and most importantly the Hillary Clinton for President Campaign.

The family of Seth Rich have asked for privacy and for the conspiracy theories to stop. For others, the need for the truth to be is overwhelming and must be discovered.

How WikiLeaks is involved

The newest conspiracy theories have been explored about Rich’s death and now Lucas’s death is that both men were murdered due to their involvement with WikiLeaks.

The dumping of almost 20,000 DNC emails, right as the Democratic Convention was convening, led to the resignation of Debra Wasserman Schultz, the head of the DNC. Assange then also offered $20,000 for information leading the conviction of the murderer of Rich. Others see Assange as using the Rich murder as a ploy to keep interest in his WikiLeaks site. There is also speculation that Assange is only interested in interfering with the Democratic process of the election of the next President of the United States.

Rumors continue the Clinton campaign involved

There are political pundits such as Dick Morris and Ann Coulter who have remarked that the Clinton campaign is the reason Seth Rich and Shawn Lucas have died. The belief is that Rich was to deliver emails to WikiLeaks or even the FBI and that is why he was murdered. For most people the belief that the emails that were leaked were not the work of anyone with the DNC but was the work of Russia who hacked into the DNC’s emails.

Russia then sold the emails to WikiLeaks. Assange has denied this but also stated he would not release who released the emails even if it was a foreign country trying to have input on the U.S Presidency.

What to believe now

There isn’t actual proof that anyone in the DNC is involved in either death but that will not stop conspiracy theorists. One thing is for sure though. The family of Seth Rich would like to see an end to the speculation.
