police tapeA watchdog organization wants to know what the FBI knows about the unsolved 2016 murder of a DNC official in Washington, DC.

Judicial Watch has filed a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against the FBI for all records related to murdered Democratic National Committee Voter Expansion Data Director Seth Rich.

According to the Metropolitan Police Department of the District of Columbia, Rich was killed at approximately 4:19 a.m. on July 10, 2016. No one has been charged in the case, and the D.C. police are offering a $25,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for Rich's death.

Chris Farrell, director of investigations and research for Judicial Watch, says there were emails between two high-profile FBI agents.

"Interestingly, we recovered through Lisa Page and Peter Strzok FBI exchanges concerning the Seth Rich murder," Farrell relays, "It clearly came to the attention of the FBI headquarters element, as well as, of course, the Washington field. There's references to WikiLeaks."

It is suspected that Rich was a WikiLeaks source and may have been killed because he leaked the DNC emails to WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.

"Julian Assange offered a $20,000 reward for information leading to the case being solved, and that led people ... to conclude, or at least to suspect, that there was some interaction or involvement between Seth Rich and WikiLeaks," Farrell explains.

While that theory is not proven, the researcher points out the unusual nature of Julian Assange coming out and making an offer for a reward in a case like that.
