A source familiar with the president’s inquiries confirmed to Big League Politics that President Donald J. Trump has been asking those he trusts for a read on the Seth Rich murder case.
Speaking on the condition of anonymity, the source explained while people close to the president have been attempting to shield him from the controversy surrounding the murder, their efforts have been unsuccessful.
Republican California Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, after meeting with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange in August, said Assange will provide evidence that Russia did not hack the Democratic National Committee in exchange for a pardon. The congressman’s visited Assange at the London Ecuadorian Embassy, where Assange is holed up pending the resolution of his legal jeopardy.
The meeting marked the first time that a U.S. Congressman ever went to meet with the publisher in person.

An additional source close to the Assange’s negotiations with the U.S. government told Big League Politics that they believe the evidence Assange would provide to the president is real and substantial, though they could not confirm or deny if the information would point to Rich.
There has long been speculation that Rich may have been the source behind the Democratic National Committee emails that were leaked to WikiLeaks during the election season. 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.”
WikiLeaks did offer a $20,000 reward for Rich’s murderer, however.
The expose and whistleblower site has also retweeted articles that asserted Rich was their source without providing any additional comment.
Assange also raised eyebrows when he brought up the murdered staffer seemingly out of nowhere during an interview with Dutch TV.
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 during the interview last year. 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.
Rich 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 WikiLeaks.
The police initially reported that his murder was the result of a botched robbery — but his wallet, watch and necklace were still on his person when his body was discovered by police.

Prominent GOP Attorney Says Jim Jordan Accuser Admitted He Was ‘Hoping’ to Get Money
A prominent GOP attorney wrote a long defense of Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) on her personal Facebook page yesterday, in which she claimed that one of Jordan’s accusers has admitted to making his accusations on false pretenses.
Cleta Mitchell wrote the following:
“My friend Rep Jim Jordan is under attack by some very disreputable sources. To suggest that Rep Jordan would turn a blind eye to any injustice, wrongdoing, immoral or illegal act is absolutely laughable. Anyone who has known and worked with Jim Jordan, as I have, for nearly a decade knows that Rep Jordan never shies from a fight and that he leads the charge whenever there is a hint of something wrong – even to his own political detriment where others prefer that he remain silent, as they do. He never does.
The question I ask is why are these spurious allegations from disreputable sources being fomented against him now? Who is really behind this? It appears to me to be a concerted effort to smear one of the most honorable gentlemen ever to have served in the US House of Representatives. That is what NBC and other news outlets should be investigating…who is behind this? Can it be sources close to those in the Mueller investigation and the Department of Justice who are uncomfortable with Rep Jordan’s relentless pursuit of the truth behind what they have been doing for the past two years? That is much more likely than that these bizarre accusations are based in any facts whatsoever. We know Jim Jordan. We are only now learning about his accusers and there is something smelly about this entire episode. And yesterday, one of Jordan’s accusers admitted that they were “hoping” to get money … that’s a federal crime. Will the FBI arrest them?”
Mitchell did not specify which accuser was hoping to use the scandal for financial gain, but she is a GOP legal insider.
She confirmed her statement for Big League Politics but did not provide further details at this time.
