Democrat Spokesman For Seth Rich Family: ‘I Didn’t Know’ There Are Police Body Cameras

Published

on

The Democrat official spokesman for the Seth Rich family, Brad Bauman, vowed to keep “fighting” theories that major Democrats had Rich killed, all the while proving ignorant of key available evidence in the case.

Democratic crisis communications consultant Brad Bauman represents himself in the press as the official Seth Rich family spokesman. His efforts have mostly consisted of attacking people like Newt Gingrich and Kim Dotcom, the former of whom called for the Rich murder to be fully investigated and the latter of whom claims that he will present evidence Tuesday showing that Rich was the source of Wikileaks’ 2016 dump of DNC emails (a theory that has been confirmed by a federal investigator who saw early details on the case).

“I am currently on the phone with the Rich family,” Bauman told Big League Politics when reached by phone, advising me to call him back. Reached several hours later, Bauman said that I caught him at another bad time.

“I’m getting back on the phone with the family in the next two minutes,” Bauman said, but granted me a few questions.

Bauman said that the Rich family got in touch with him through an intermediary.

“The family reached out to me. They had asked two friends of Seth’s if they could recommend somebody who could help them out,” Bauman said.

Asked why he is fighting against potential leads in the case, Bauman was quick to fight.

“Because they’re not leads that’s the reason why,” Bauman said. “I want to get to the bottom of who killed Seth Rich. I want to see [the family] not suffer anymore. Everything that’s being said out there doesn’t have a shred of evidence. Not a shred of evidence that would stand up in a court of law has been provided…[Putting out] hearsay claims then asking us me and the family about it does not rise to the level of what a murder investigation and trial is about, that is why I’m fighting this stuff back.”

Asked if police body camera footage would be released, Bauman fought the existence of such footage.

“Number one, I don’t believe that there are body cameras involved. Do you know that for a fact?,” Bauman said. I told him that the police report showed three officers wearing body cameras when they found an alive and conscious Rich on July 10, 2016.

“Okay, I did not know that,” Bauman said.

Bauman said that a video showing Rich’s parents thanking people on the Internet was not an endorsement of Internet fact-finders, but rather a thank you to people who contributed to the family’s GoFundMe account meant to search for the true killers (it is unclear what the distinction there is, but I didn’t press him on it).

The existence of police body cameras — and other security cameras in the area that could have clearly showed the assailants — seemed to trip Bauman up.

“For folks that are interested in getting to the bottom of what happened, I believe whole-heartedly that the police department should be more forthcoming about what we do and what we do not know,” he said. “I believe that all of what has happened over the last few weeks in terms of news stories and supposition and rumors surrounding this case that it is time for the police to fully acknowledge and explain exactly where the investigation stands and what is known and what is not known about this case.”

Asked if the killers were robbers, presumably young African-American men in the area, Bauman was inconclusive.

“We don’t know. We don’t know, I can’t say that it was young African-American men that’s not right either,” Bauman said.

Bauman is a well-known Democratic crisis communications consultant and former Democratic staffer. He is a co-founder and partner of the firm the Pastorum Group. Fellow co-founder Josh Cohen has written for The Atlantic Council, the George Soros-funded think tank that targets pro-Trump journalists, and fellow co-founder Michelle Coyle Edwards was an executive at Rising Tide, which was a Ready For Hillary client.

Big League Politics has requested police body camera footage from the Metropolitan Police Department, but FOIA guidelines prohibit media from accessing the footage and other FOIA requests are being denied.

In 2010, Bauman identified former President Bill Clinton as “my good friend” in the caption of a Facebook photo.

Chuck Schumer Threatens Supreme Court Justices: “You Will Pay the Price”

Chilling language.

Published

on

Chuck Schumer outright threatened two Supreme Court Justices when speaking at a pro-abortion event on Wednesday, using vengeful and vindictive language when discussing recent pro-life court case rulings reached by the court.

Watch here:

I want to tell you, Gorsuch, Kavanaugh…. You have unleashed the whirlwind, and you will pay the price! You won’t know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions.

Such rhetoric might be expected in one of Kim Jong Un’s regular missive of threats against the United States. But it’s shocking to hear a sitting Senate Majority Leader slam nonpartisan Supreme Court Justices in such a bold fashion, totally disregarding the court’s traditional independence from everyday politics.

The rally by a pro-abortion group was being held in advance of an expected court ruling on a Louisiana abortion law. The law requires abortionists to have admitting privileges at state hospitals.

Republican legislators slammed Schumer for his irresponsible and threatening rhetoric at the abortion rally after footage of his language was seen on Twitter.

Schumer may have been alluding to potential Democratic plans to impeach Kavanaugh, and possibly even Gorsuch, removing them from the Supreme Court. The Court’s now conservative majority has placed a major stumbling block in the way of the Left’s preferred strategy of seizing power through judicial activism.

Schumer’s unprecedented language, especially coming from a senior party official who should remain level-headed, demonstrates the Democratic Party’s willing to cast aside all formal norms of federal politics and government. They’re willing to do whatever it takes in order to get their way.
