Seth Rich was NOT assassinated. I say this based on his having been shot twice in the back.  A real assassin would have shot Mr. Rich in the head.
Seth Conrad Rich was a 27-year-old Democratic National Committee (DNC) employee who was fatally shot in the Bloomingdale neighborhood of Washington, D.C. on July 10, 2016. 
There are TWO separate issues surrounding the murder of Seth Rich, as aptly explained in a broadcast of Peter Lavelle’s Crosstalk program, which aired recently on the Russia Today (RT) network. One issue is the murder itself. The other issue is whether or not Mr. Rich supplied Wikileaks with documents from the DNC. (The Crosstalk broadcast can hopefully be viewed at the top of today’s blog entry.)
The three guests appearing on the Crosstalk broadcast, published to YouTube on May 29, 2017, were (1) Hank Sheinkopf, Democratic Party consultant and Newsmax contributor; (2) H.A. Goodman, columnist and journalist; and (3) Alex Christoforou, director and writer for TheDuran.com. The interchange between the guests was lively, with a degree of passionate difference of opinion. Christoforou urged a middle ground between opponents Sheinkopf and Goodman. He argued for a clear distinction to be made between the murder and the question of whether Mr. Rich had been a source for Wikileaks.
As to the latter issue, Goodman asked why it was that evidence being offered by one Kim Dotcom was being ignored. Kim Dotcom (born Kim Schmitz), also known as Kimble and Kim Tim Jim Vestor, is a German-Finnish Internet entrepreneur, businessman, musician, and political party founder who resides in Auckland, New Zealand. On May 22, 2017 Kim Dotcom posted a statement to his website claiming to have information relevant to the investigation into the murder of DNC staffer Seth Rich. Dotcom claimed that he had proof that Rich was the source of the 2016 Democratic National Committee email leak, and that he was willing to provide evidence if US special counsel Robert Mueller could guarantee his safe passage from New Zealand to the United States. 
But does Kim Dotcom even need to travel to the United States to provide evidence? Swedish authorities finally traveled to Britain to question Julian Assange about rape allegations. (Assange has since been cleared.) Why can’t Robert Mueller or his staff travel to New Zealand and get testimony and/or evidence there? Goodman asks a good question: If Kim Dotcom is offering to provide evidence, why would there be any reluctance to receive it?
