Since his unsolved murder, there has been a swell of interest in the case of Seth Rich, the DNC staffer who discovered their election-rigging against Bernie Sanders in 2016. The FBI claims to have investigated his computer and emails only to back track the claim when FOIA requests were made for the information. Now Judicial Watch (JW) is suing to get the documents.
JW announced in a press release February 13th that it has filed a “Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the FBI for all records related to murdered Democratic National Committee (DNC) Voter Expansion Data Director Seth Rich.”
The lawsuit was filed in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia as a follow up to the failure of the FBI to respond to a FOIA request made by JW on July 26, 2019. The initial request sought to obtain all records related to Rich and his murder (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of Justice, No. 1:20-cv-00385).
Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said, ‘there is significant public interest in the Seth Rich murder and the FBI’s game-playing on document production in this case is inexcusable.”
Authorities claim that Rich was the victim of a robbery, although his valuables were still on his person when he was found. No one has been arrested in connection with his murder.
