The lead homicide detective on the Seth Rich murder case said privately that the Metropolitan Police Department gave him “strict, strict rules” not to talk about the case “because of what this case is.” He said the higher-ups in the department were very aware of the case and begged a private investigator not to “throw me under the bus” because he feared he would get “re-assigned” somewhere to “moving property around” if he talked about the case.
Detective Joseph DellaCamera met with private detective Rod Wheeler at Wheeler’s Maryland office on April 25, 2017, according to notes that Wheeler took of the meeting. Those notes were provided to Big League Politics by a source who wishes to remain anonymous at this time.
DellaCamera told Wheeler that he did not have evidence to suggest that Rich was killed due to his affiliation with the DNC and the fact that Rich was not shot in the head suggests to him that it was not a hitman. But when asked if Rich was exchanging emails with Wikileaks, DellaCamera dodged the question without denying it.
Here are the full notes from Wheeler’s conversation with DellaCamera (emphasis added):
From: Rod Wheeler
Subject: DellaCamera Interview
April 25, 2017 (9:00am, EDT) (Rod Wheeler reporting)
Met with Det. DellaCamera of the Metropolitan Police Department, at my office in Oxon Hill, MD. Det. DellaCamera shared the following information:
He is the lead Homicide detective on the investigation surrounding the murder of Seth Rich. He stated that the investigation is somewhat stalled, as he has no suspects or persons of interest in the case. Further, upon being asked specifically about what the working theories are surrounding the death, he said he “still believes” Seth’s death was the result of a “robbery gone bad.” He believes that the suspect (s) may have attempted to rob Seth, and was met with resistance from Seth, and thus decided to shoot and kill him. He further believes the assailants are from the LeDroit Park section of Northwest Washington DC because that is the direction that an eyewitness observed two males running towards, the night of the incident.
DellaCamera stated that he (police investigators) have exhausted their search for any additional video surveillance footage that may be out there. He indicated that he has checked with several persons who may have had video footage along the route in which Seth walked the night of the incident, but to date, he has been unable to find any additional video. DellaCamera stated that he has check the local McDonald’s restaurant in the area as well as other surrounding businesses but have been unable to find any additional video. Lastly, with regards to video, DellaCamera states that there was some video surveillance footage that came from a small convenience store on Flagler Street, but the video quality is extremely bad and there is nothing on the video that anyone could see that could assist with the investigation. Further he states that on the video, you could see the bottom half of two individuals walking across the street on Flagler Street and then moments later you see Seth Rich fall into the video view in the crosswalk on the street in front of the convenient store. DellaCamera said he has a witness that observed two people running in the immediate area the night of the incident, however, they did not see the actual shooting incident.
At this point, DellaCamera voluntarily stated that the whole “conspiracy” story really “threw things off with the investigation.” He heard that Seth was an email leaker; however, he states, “I’ve got nothing to say or to show that the shooting was related to emails or anything other than a street robbery.”
When asked specifically was there any information located on any of Seth’s computers that would indicate that he did in fact send emails to WikiLeaks, DellaCamera replied, “there is certain information that I can’t provide regarding the case itself, and I hope you understand, like I said, I can’t reveal detailed information about the case itself.” “I have strict, strict rules by my bosses, because of what this case is, that says don’t provide information out, other than what is already publicly out there. I just can’t go into detail with what I know.” At this time DellaCamera was asked is it a possibility that emails were found on Seth’s computer related to the DNC and this could be a motivation for his being killed? DellaCamera replied, “anything’s possible; I can’t say one way or the other…..”
DellaCamera was then asked, “was the FBI involved, at all in the case?” He replied, “I don’t know; I mean, I never was contacted by the FBI at all.” As far as I know, they (FBI) never provided me with information.” I would hope I would know if they were involved, but I don’t have any knowledge of them being involved.”
At this time, DellaCamera stated, “I know you’re a private investigator, and whatever information is revealed, I just hope it doesn’t go towards the media side of this.” “I’ve tried to contact Jack Burkeman and Julianna Assuage several times, but I haven’t been successful. I just want to ask them what they know and if they can help me with the investigation.” “I think Burkeman is blowing smoke…with his knowledge of what happened.” I even heard he has now created a website surrounding the murder.”
DellaCamera was told that the family were told by me (Wheeler) that regardless of whatever direction the investigation goes, we need to solve the murder, identify the bad guy and get him off the street. So, in keeping with that spirit, I need to “rule out” the possibility that Seth’s death could have been related to his job at the DNC. I (wheeler) haven’t been able to rule out that someone from the DNC could have been responsible for Seth’s death. DellaCamera was asked, “were you aware that Seth was having problems with two supervisors at his job (DNC) and he was very emotionally upset because of his problems at the DNC? DellaCamera replied, “I was aware that there were problems, but I don’t know who the supervisors were that he was having problems with.” Next, DellaCamera was asked if he was aware that Seth received money from WikiLeaks in exchange for the emails? Did you look into his (Seth’s) financial records? DellaCamera replied, “again, I can’t go into details with specifics about the case such as that…I really can’t. Nothing against you, Rod but I’m just not trying to get myself jammed up.” DellaCamera was asked, “so the higher-ups in the department are very aware of this case?” He replied, “Oh yeah, for sure.”
I asked once again about the email records. I informed DellaCamera that we need to “disprove” the theory that Seth was killed because of this job at the DNC. DellaCamera stated, “honestly, put it this way, if Seth worked anywhere else other than the DNC, nobody would give a shit about his death. The only reason there is such interest is because of where he worked.” DellaCamera was asked, “so why is that?” He replied, “again, it goes back to the DNC…a political organization and it all started stemming from around the time of the election..and it sounds like someone was trying to ruffle feathers…I mean that’s what I think.”
Wheeler asked DellaCamera, “but Seth’s death could have been a hit, ordered by the DNC, right?
He replied, “um, me personally, I don’t think it was a hit because he wasn’t shot in the head. If you’re going to kill somebody, you’re going to make sure that they die…Seth didn’t die right away…he lived for a while and died at the hospital.” Wheeler asked, “and he never made any statements as to who could have shot him?” DellaCamera replied, “I can’t go into detail about that (sniff)….um, I just can’t Rod.” Next, Wheeler asked, “so it is possible that he could have said something in terms of who did it (shot him). DellaCamera hesitated, and said, “um…it’s possible: anything is possible…..” “I mean, what I’m getting at with it being a hit, I mean, if you want somebody dead where is the one place you’re going to shoot them…in the head right. You want to make sure they’re dead…not shoot them in some other part of the body where you don’t know if they’re dead or not…you don’t know if they’re going live to give information out, and you might get yourself caught up..so, that’s why everybody got their theories. I got mine.”
DellaCamera was asked, “here’s a fair question, can we rule it out that Seth’s death is definitely not related to the job?” He replied, “not, not to an extent..not just yet…we can’t rule anything out….” “I feel that if its related to the DNC, at some point, it may come out.” “If somebody gets locked up, and they’re like, I’m taking the heat for this, and their approached about somebody else, I feel like somebody’s going to start snitching then.”
Wheeler said to DellaCamera, “ I know that some of the news outlets are about to jump out there with more information from wherever they get it from, and a question will be posed to me, can we rule out that Seth’s death had anything to do with his job at the DNC. And I think the answer is going to have to be, and please tell me if I’m wrong, no, we can’t rule that out because we don’t have a suspect behind bars; we don’t have a person of interest. So, we can’t rule out anything at this point. Then the question is going to be asked is it possible that Seth’s death was in fact orchestrated from someone of or related to his job.
Wheeler looked directly at DellaCamera and asked, “the answer?” After a long sigh and brief laughter, DellaCamera stated, “You’ve been looking into this yourself, and, and, you have investigative experience, and like we said, anything is possible right. Until we get somebody locked up, we just don’t know. Anything’s possible.” “Look, look Rod, please, please do not quote me on anything…..I don’t need that shit coming back on me..if I’m quoted, I will probably be reassigned to CCB somewhere…..moving property around. There’s certain details of the case that we just can’t renewal to anybody, just for the integrity of the case. But, do what you got to do for your business and the news story, but please don’t, don’t throw me under the bus Rod.”
Once again, Wheeler asked, has the investigation shown that Seth received any money from anyone such as WikiLeaks during that time period. DellaCamera stated, “I don’t know. I need to go back and look at his financial records. I didn’t notice anything back then when I looked, but it’s been a while. And if he (Seth) did receive any money, who knows where he put it at…especially if he did receive money. Maybe he stashed it somewhere else..and we just don’t know.”
Then Wheeler asked, “did your review of Seth’s computer reveal that any emails went out to WikiLeaks?” DellaCamera replied, (after a long pause), well, well…there’s stuff on there that, it’s its, emails are sent everyday….um…the context of the emails I can’t get into the details, um, again, I don’t have anything pointing the finger at the DNC other than the conspiracy theories. Nobody has come to me with direct information and provided detailed information about the DNC being involved somehow.”
Big League Politics has repeatedly attempted to contact DellaCamera to get him on the record for our reporting.

Disgraced FBI Agent Strozk Willing to Testify Before House Judiciary Committee
A disgraced FBI agent who promised his colleagues that he “will stop” President Donald J. Trump from being elected is willing to testify before the House Judiciary Committee, according to a letter sent by his attorney Sunday.
According to the letter that was obtained by CNN, Aitan Goelman, lawyer for FBI agent Peter Strzok, says that House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte’s pursuit of a subpoena to compel Strzok to testify is “wholly unnecessary.”
Strzok “has been fully cooperative with the DOJ Office of Inspector General” and “intends to voluntarily appear and testify before [the House Judiciary] committee and any other Congressional committee that invites him.”
The recently released Inspector General’s report brought to light more anti-Trump text messages between Strzok and his lover, fellow agent Lisa Page. Both were terrified of a Trump presidency and apparently willing to try to stop it.
Rep. Mark Meadows said that this information was withheld from Congress — clearly by deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein and others.
This proves definitively what observers already know: James Comey’s FBI was weaponized against Trump in order to help Hillary Clinton win the election. Clinton was already the Democratic nominee when the following exchange occurred, courtesy of Thursday’s Inspector General report by Michael Horowitz. The conversation occurred on August 8, 2016:
“Lisa Page: [Trump is] not ever going to become President, right? Right?!
Strzok: No. No he’s not. We’ll stop it.””
BLP Passage Ends.
Strzok also rigged the warrant of disgraced former Democratic Congressman Anthony Weiner’s laptop to protect Hillary Clinton from the damaging information it contained.
“On October 29, 2016 Strzok broke FBI policy and emailed a sealed draft warrant for the Weiner emails to his personal email, ” former FBI Special Surveillance Group member Chuck Marler told Big League Politics. “Obviously he wanted to work on the draft out of view of the FBI and most likely allow someone else to view it for their input. What did he put in the warrant that was filed the following day”
Strzok appears willing to testify before the Committee without immunity and without invoking his Fifth Amendment rights against self-incrimination.
The Never Trump Grifter Candidate Has MAJOR Financial Issues
A candidate for U.S. Congress from Colorado has made many blunders in his campaign finance history that have been passed off either as mistakes or conveniently explained away.
Darryl Glenn is a County Commissioner for El Paso County, CO, former City Councilman in Colorado Springs and 2016 Candidate for U.S. Senate from Colorado who has a sordid history questionable campaign finance decisions. Not surprisingly, he is part of the NeverTrump establishment GOP. As most understand, the swamp crosses party lines and is not strictly geographically located in Washington.
Dating back to 2014, Glenn has made numerous payments to family members from his campaign committees. According to the Federal Election Commission’s Campaign Finance Database, when Glenn ran for U.S. Senate in 2016 and lost to incumbent Democrat Michael Bennet, he paid his wife, Jane Northrup Glenn, and her company Second Heaven Strategies a combined $54,672 for “consulting services:”
|2017||$30,000||Second Heaven Strategies||Campaign Consulting, Strategic Consulting|
|2016*||$24,672||Jane Northrup||Salary, Grassroots Consulting, Bonus|
|*The 2016 total includes a 11/9 payment of $5,672, reported as bonus & mileage reimbursement|
During the final months of the same campaign, Glenn paid his daughter Ashley $13,000 for “grassroots consulting.” He also paid her $1000 per month for “social media consulting.” He made two payments of $1000 to Northrup Glenn’s son from a previous marriage, Kevin Cruz for “campaign consulting:”
|2016||$13,000||Ashley Glenn||Grassroots Consulting, Salary|
|2017||$6,000||Ashley Glenn||Social Media Consulting|
|2017||$2,000||Andrew Cruz||Campaign Consulting|
In 2014, Glenn ran a successful campaign for the Board of County Commission, where he paid $10,000 to his daughter Ashley, nearly half of the $24,000 spent during the whole cycle. The payments were made in October and November in $5000 installments, right at the end of the campaign, which Glenn won by 60 points. According to Glenn, the payments were made for social media and marketing.
Glenn has had issues with improperly handling excessive campaign contributions, too. According to FEC records, Glenn received several donations in excess of amount legally permitted during his 2016 Senate bid. Federal law requires the refunding of excessive donations within 60 days. Instead, Glenn held onto the donations until after the election ended:
|Donor||Date of Excessive $||Refund Amt||Refund Date||Days Held|
|GC Luxury Homes LLC||8/23/16||$1,000||1/31/17||161|
|Patrick Davis Consulting LLC||8/23/16||$250||1/31/17||161|
|Schwartz Media Buying Co||7/22/16||$8,100||11/16/16||117|
He also paid his staffers and family bonuses using campaign funds just after his 2016 loss:
|Capel, Benyam||Grassroots Consulting – Bonus||11/9/16||$3,000.00|
|Caro, Juan||Grassroots Consulting – Bonus||11/10/16||$2,500.00|
|Croghan, Meghan||Grassroots Consulting – Bonus||11/9/16||$4,000.00|
|Gage, Valerie||Grassroots Consulting – Bonus||11/9/16||$3,000.00|
|Glenn, Ashley||Grassroots Consulting – Bonus||11/9/16||$3,000.00|
|Jacobson, Seth||Grassroots Consulting – Bonus||11/9/16||$4,000.00|
|Knight, Sarah||Grassroots Consulting – Bonus||11/9/16||$2,990.00|
|Morris, Chris||Grassroots Consulting – Bonus||11/9/16||$500.00|
|Northrup, Jane||Grassroots Consulting – Bonus; Mileage Reimb.||11/9/16||$5,672.68|
|Richards, Jacob||Grassroots Consulting – Bonus||11/9/16||$3,000.00|
|Santaniello, Joe||Grassroots Consulting – Bonus||11/9/16||$5,000.00|
|Supranovich, Daniel||Grassroots Consulting – Bonus||11/9/16||$3,000.00|
|Tallis, Kristin||Grassroots Consulting – Bonus||11/9/16||$4,000.00|
|Toledo, Fran||Grassroots Consulting – Bonus||11/9/16||$1,000.00|
|Wilson, Evan||Grassroots Consulting – Bonus||11/9/16||$3,000.00|
In late November 2016, Glenn’s campaign cut Glenn a check for $70,815 according to FEC records. The check was refunded a week later, and the campaign declared it a mistaken payment in its finance report. Here is the receipt for the returned payment:
Big League Politics reported earlier today that Glenn is currently paying himself out of his campaign contributions and loaning the money back to his campaign. The move, while legal, is shifty and will allow Glenn to pay himself nearly $90,000 after the campaign ends.
Why Is George Soros Buying Up The New York Times?
According to recent filings to the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), billionaire globalist George Soros, through his investment firm, Soros Fund Management LLC, has purchased over $3 million-worth of stock holdings in the New York Times.
This purchase is the first that the liberal financier has made since 2007, when Soros bought $470,000 worth of shares in the newspaper. This recent investment includes purchasing 126,400 shares valued at $3,046,000. Soros’s purchase was for Class A stock holdings which are publicly traded-as opposed to its Class B stock, which are privately held.
The May 15th filing can be viewed here: https://www.sec.gov/Archives/edgar/data/1029160/000114036118023894/xslForm13F_X01/form13fInfoTable.xml
Vice president of business and culture at the Media Research Center, Dan Gainor, found that in 2011, Soros pushed a minimum of $48 million into media ventures that included “journalism schools, investigative journalism and even industry organizations” over the course of just eight years. “Soros has long had influence or given direct funding to a wide range of journalism operations from NPR to ProPublica,” Gainor said. “This is still a big step to be buying a $3 million stake in the top liberal outlet in America.”
The controversial billionaire’s influence in mainstream media doesn’t stop there. The Hungarian-American self proclaimed “philanthropist” has ties to over 30 mainstream news outlets – including the Associated Press, Washington Post, NBC and ABC. Soros’s Open Society Institute is reported to have funded seven different investigative reporting projects including the Columbia University’s School of Journalism-receiving $600,000 from Soros, the Center for Investigative Reporting, the Center for Public Integrity and the New Orleans’ ‘The Lens’. Soros also funds the Committee to Protect Journalists, The National Federation of Community Broadcasters and the National Association of Hispanic Journalists.
His fascination with controlling the media is something that the billionaire has always shown interest in, but now as one of the world’s richest men, he’s able to fulfill his dreams all while using it to unapologetically, and openly attack the right.
In author and New York Times veteran, Michael T. Kaufman’s book entitled “Soros: The Life and Times of a Messianic Billionaire,” Soros has been intrigued by media since he was a young child with early interests into the field including “history or journalism or some form of writing.” He also had his own newspaper in his native Hungary, ‘The Lupa News’, which he served as “editor-in-chief and publisher”.
With all the billions of dollars that Soros has invested into trying to shape American politics and media, he is being forced to acknowledge his limits of influence.
Soros recently told The Washington Post that he was blindsided by President Donald Trump’s election. “Apparently, I was living in my own bubble.” He went on to explain why he thought Hillary Clinton lost the election, saying, “She was too much like a schoolmarm,” and that she was always “talking down to people…instead of listening to them.”
You can be sure of one thing, this is not the last we’ve heard from Soros who plans to reshape the public opinion through mainstream media publications and financially back a candidate in 2020 who shares his globalist agenda.
“The bigger the danger, the bigger the threat, the more I feel engaged to confront it,” added Soros. “So in that sense, yes, I redouble my efforts.”
Judicial Watch president, Tom Fitton said in a recent statement, Soros is a businessman and “shouldn’t be receiving taxpayer support to advance his radical left agenda to undermine freedom here at home and abroad.”
