DC Whispers

Seth Rich Police Chief Hobnobbed With Clinton Campaign and DNC Officials (PHOTOS)



The police chief who oversaw Seth Rich’s unsolved murder case has socialized and been honored alongside key Hillary Clinton advisers and even Rich’s own boss at the Democratic National Committee. Rich is widely reported to be the source of Wikileaks’ damning 2016 email release that showed the DNC colluding to hand the nomination to Clinton at the expense of Bernie Sanders. He was gunned down in D.C. 12 days before Wikileaks’ release.

Former Metropolitan Police Department chief Cathy Lanier resigned from her post the month after Rich’s murder to accept a position running security for the National Football League. She sits on the Washington Police Foundation board alongside Heather Podesta, the D.C. power broker who was married to Clinton campaign chief John Podesta’s lobbyist brother Tony.

In 2014, Lanier was honored on ELLE magazine’s list of the ten most powerful women in Washington alongside top Hillary Clinton aide Cheryl Mills and longtime Clinton friend and informal adviser Neera Tanden. Other honorees included NARAL Pro-Choice America president Ilyse Hogue and Obama Cabinet official Penny Pritzker.

Lanier posed for a photo spread for the magazine, but was captioned but not pictured in the photo of the 2014 honorees with Mills and Tanden.

Who else was at the dinner? None other than Amy Dacey, the CEO of the Democratic National Committee at the time of Seth Rich’s murder, who resigned one month after the killing as the DNC was rocked with scandal.

In August 2015, a survey was conducted of more than 1,100 D.C. cops in the DC Police Union, asking if they had confidence in Lanier or no confidence.

97.5 percent of the cops voted “No.”

Big League Politics has repeatedly contacted the Metropolitan Police Department for relevant information related to the Seth Rich case, and to obtain police body camera footage from the incident.
