Seth Rich Update: Fox News vs. the Democratic Party, or is the truth oozing out?
The family of the Democratic National Committee staffer who was gunned down on July 10 on a Washington, D.C., blasted reports that he was a source of thousands of emails leaked to WikiLeaks.
Rod Wheeler, a retired Washington homicide detective and Fox News contributor hired by a third party to investigate the case made the WikiLeaks claim, which was corroborated by a federal investigator who spoke to Fox News.
“My investigation up to this point shows there was some degree of email exchange between Seth Rich and WikiLeaks.”
But a spokesman for Rich's family on Tuesday said Wheeler was not authorized to speak for the family and called assertions Seth Rich sent emails to WikiLeaks "unsubstantiated." Brad Bauman said even if purported emails were to surface, it would not necessarily mean Rich had helped WikiLeaks.
"Even if tomorrow, an email was found, it is not a high enough bar of evidence to prove any interactions as emails can be altered and we've seen that those interested in pushing conspiracies will stop at nothing to do so," Bauman said. "We are a family who is committed to facts, not fake evidence that surfaces every few months to fill the void and distract law enforcement and the general public from finding Seth's murderers."

There is more, much more: Statements from DC police, FBI, rewards posted. It is a pretty good recap of what has and is transpiring. I encourage you to read it.
If you are wondering why Seth Rich family statements on new evidence sound like they are coming from the Democratic Party, it is because THEY are.
Brad Bauman is a political consultant working for Democratic candidates for office and progressive causes. Bauman is the former Executive Director of the Congressional Progressive Caucus. In that capacity, Bauman oversaw the legislative, communications and political operations for the second largest caucus in Congress. Prior to that, Brad served as Communications Director for various members of Congress and numerous targeted Congressional campaigns Brad was named a Rising Star in American Politics by Campaigns and Elections Magazine in 2004.

Again, all we can do is stay tuned and wait for the story to unfold. Is Fox stepping on Trump blabbing to the Russians? Is the story of Seth Rich oozing out because the truth must be told?
