Amid claims by Kim Dotcom that Seth Rich was the source of the emails from the Democratic National Committee which were published by WikiLeaks, Assange has tweeted that they won’t identify their sources — but sometimes those sources reveal themselves to other people. He also used the hashtag #SethRich.
WikiLeaks has never disclosed a source. Sources sometimes talk to other parties but identities never emerge from WikiLeaks. #SethRich

Dotcom has claimed in recent days that he knows Rich was the source because they were in contact.

As we previously reported, on Friday, the Megaupload founder and friend of Julian Assange offered to provide Congress with written testimony and proof that the murdered Democratic National Committee staffer was WikiLeaks’ source — if they will include his murder in their Russia investigation.
Much like WikiLeaks, Dotcom himself has quite an impressive record of providing accurate information.

Though Assange has infamously expressed interest in Rich, he has always maintained that WikiLeaks will never name a source. To this day, he continues to refer to Chelsea Manning as an “alleged source.”
During an interview with Dutch TV in August, approximately a month after the murder, Assange brought Rich up during an interview while speaking of the risks that WikiLeaks sources take.
“Whistleblowers go to significant efforts to get us material and often significant risks. There was a 27-year old that works for the DNC who was shot in the back… murdered.. for unknown reasons as he was walking down the street in Washington,” Assange said.
At this point the host interjected saying, “that was just a robbery, wasn’t it?”
“No there was no finding,” Assange responded.
When asked what he was suggesting, Assange said, “I am suggesting that our sources take risks and they become concerned to see things occurring like that.”
“But why make the suggestion?” the interviewer asks.
“Because we have to understand how high the stakes are in the United States and that our sources face serious risks… that’s why they come to us so we can protect their anonymity,” Assange asserted.
The organization also offered a $20,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of his killer.
Rich was shot in the back during the early morning hours of July 10, 2016, near his home while he was on the phone with his girlfriend. The police initially ruled that it was a botched robbery — but his wallet, watch, phone and necklace were still on his person when he was discovered by police.
WikiLeaks has also retweeted articles which claimed that Rich was the source, without providing additional comment.
Dotcom has stated that he will provide a statement with more information on Tuesday, after he has had a chance to speak to his lawyers. If he is correct, the entire Russian meddling and collusion narrative will crumble faster than Hillary Clinton’s failed campaign.
Biden Rebuffs Advisors’ Demands to Censor OANN, Newsmax, Fox News By Executive Order
Biden advisors have sought to ban conservative media from federal housing.
According to a White House source, President Joe Biden has rebuffed suggestions that he sign an executive order that would ban certain conservative news networks from being broadcast to federal housing complexes.
The order would’ve named One America News Network, Newsmax, and Fox News by name. The former two networks are known for a broadly pro-Donald Trump editorial stance, with Fox split between establishment liberal and conservative content.
Authoritarian liberals advising President Biden are said to have suggested that Biden crack down on television and media networks which dissent from the administration’s policy views, citing the raucous US Capitol protest earlier this month as an imperative to clamp down on the opposition.
The executive order in question would most prominently affect military housing, where the cable channels in question are accessible through cable services contracted through the military services. The order, which never progressed beyond suggestions to President Biden, may even have gone so far as to restrict the television channels from private housing organizations contracted to provide lodging to military service members and their families.
Biden even went so far as to dismiss the censorship attempt as “nonsense,” according to a White House source familiar with the exchange. It’s likely that attempts to sign and enforce it would’ve been shut down by the judiciary, representing a clear attempt to discriminate against the very viewing of political expression within federal buildings.
As an authoritarian streak grows more prominent in the intolerant attitudes of American liberals, it appears President Biden himself is at least skeptical to the slightest degree of governmental censorship attempts, although Biden has never so much as even made reference to the censorship practices utilized by Big Tech companies against tens of millions of Americans.
