Detective Antoine Weston of the DC Metropolitan Police Department took to Twitter on Monday to lash out at an alternative media journalist who has been digging into the Seth Rich case.
Matt Couch of America First Media Group had tweeted that he heard from sources that Rich had marks on his wrists “consistent with handcuffs.” He also asked why the autopsy results are being blocked.
In response, Detective Weston who was not tagged in the tweet, wrote, “Get ALL OF THE HECK OUT OF HERE with this BS. Just stop.”
After another user responded to the angry tweet asking why he cares, Weston tweeted at him saying, “Dumbass, because ALL investigative leads are exhausted at this time. The case is still considered OPEN. Now stop reaching.”
Couch then quoted Detective Weston’s tweet and wrote, “unfortunately, our investigation isn’t BS… But you seem triggered, where did you come from, what do you know? Enlighten us :)”
Detective Weston quickly replied saying, “I know your REACHING. Let this family get justice without you conspiracy liars. Live your own life and leave theirs alone.”
You know you're over the target when a Detective with Metro D.C. Police's 3rd District has time to attack you on Twitter.. #SethRich

When I tweeted at Detective Weston to confirm he worked for the DC Metro Police and attempt to ask for comment, he blocked me and deleted his tweets. We were able to independently confirm that he does. He is also featured in this photo after receiving an award from the department.
Other tweets on his feed consist mainly of sports commentary, retweets of Russian conspiracy theories which have less evidence than the Rich theories, and bashing the president.
Following the encounter, Couch took to Periscope and stated that the fact that DC detectives are sitting around rage tweeting at investigative journalists shows that they are “pissed” and “they are as corrupt as it gets in the swamp that is Washington, DC.”
“What that means folks, is that these detectives are sitting around and they’re pissed. They’re pissed off because we are making them look stupid. It’s not my fault, it’s not my team’s fault that we’re making them look stupid — they’re making themselves look stupid because they’re covering up the murder of a DNC staffer named Seth Rich. That’s why they’re so upset,” Couch asserted.

Rich, a data analyst for the Democratic National Committee, was shot in the back in the early morning hours of July 10, 2016, near his home while he was on the phone with his girlfriend — 12 days before the publication of the DNC emails by the controversial publisher. The police initially ruled that it was a botched robbery — but his wallet, watch, and necklace were still on his person when he was discovered by police.
Many believe that Rich was the source of the DNC emails that were released by WikiLeaks, including tech mogul Kim Dotcom who has asserted that he personally spoke to Rich.
Amidst the claims by Dotcom, Julian Assange tweeted that though WikiLeaks won’t identify sources — sometimes their sources reveal themselves to other people. He also included the #SethRich hashtag in his tweet.
WikiLeaks has never disclosed a source. Sources sometimes talk to other parties but identities never emerge from WikiLeaks. #SethRich

Assange also raised eyebrows with his commentary about Rich while being interviewed on Dutch TV last year.
“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. When asked by the host if he would suggest that Rich was involved, he stated that “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.”
Additionally, WikiLeaks offered a $20,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of Rich’s killer shortly after his death.
Minnesota Governor Asking President Trump to Declare Riots a Federal Disaster In Hope of Receiving Bailout Funds
Weren’t they peaceful protestors?
Minnesota Governor Tim Walz is requesting that President Donald Trump declare the recent rounds of race riots in Minneapolis a federal emergency, so that the state may access federal bailout funds intended for communities affected by disasters.
Governor Walz and Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey largely stood by idly as race rioters destroyed and damaged more than 700 buildings in the riots, which occurred after the controversial death of George Floyd during a questionable arrest at the hands of the Minneapolis police department. The property damage from the widespread riots is estimated to range in the tens of millions, and Frey is already pushing a federal bailout to repair the damages enabled by his unwillingness to prevent criminality and support of the rioters’ “message.”
Governor Walz referenced the victims of the riots in a statement requesting the bailout, callously ignoring that the victims of the riots were not only victimized by criminal riots, but simply ignored in their hour of need by state and local officials unwilling to confront left-wing criminality in the name of “justice.”
“We’re asking our federal partners to step up and help our communities recover,” demanded Governor Walz. “We need to come together to ensure Minnesotans who were victims of this destruction have access to critical infrastructure they need so they can go to the grocery store, pick up their medication, and live their lives. Together, we will rebuild.”
The Governor’s estimate of property damage from the riots is considerably greater than what the mayor estimated, claiming that combined damages from the destruction could cost as much as $500 million.
In the new world of unabated criminality and violent destruction from vicious gangs in Democrat-controlled cities, Democrat officials will always be prepared to come cup in hand to American taxpayers with hopes of funding the repairs of the rioting that they enabled, allowed, and perhaps even tacitly supported. No responsibility or integrity.
