More Questions Surface In The Seth Rich Murder Investigation. Just How Deeply Do The Tentacles Of The DNC Reach?
by Pamela Williams
There have more questions surfacing in the Seth Rich murder investigation which need to be investigated. First of all,
- Is the DNC paying spokesman for the Rich family?
The spokesman for the family of murdered Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich emphatically denies that the DNC is funding his salary. Does anyone really believe this? Brad Bauman, a professional Democratic crisis public-relations consultant who has frequently criticized President Donald Trump, abruptly ended a call with WND when asked about his connection to the DNC. What is his problem anyway? Why does he feel the answer to this question is needs to be kept secret?
- Just who is Bauman?
From 2011 to 2014. Bauman was executive director of the Congressional Progressive Caucus. According to his Linkedlin page. He certainly is not linked with Republicans, as he hates President Trump. He claims President Trump “has no respect for America.” This is such “hogwash!” And he wrote: “To sum up Trump’s 100 days of foreign policy: Unannounced photo-ops with family members and admin officials and provocative unstrategic bombings and fake naval deployments are enough to show strength to American audiences. This is us getting played.” So we see Barman was true DNC with an intense hatred for President Trump; also, a big reason to keep the Russian interference story alive.
- Just how did the Rich Family Really Feel About Bauman?
Mr. Rich is quoted as saying: “We were assigned a guy named Brad Bauman. I don’t know why we were assigned him. I have no idea why I needed somebody to speak for me.” In an interview with WND on May 16, Bauman explained that he was put in touch with Rich’s family by two of Rich’s friends – both of whom worked for the DNC. I wonder just who those “friends” really were.
Bauman also claimed the Rich family is devastated that a private eye, former DC police homicide detective Rod Wheeler, hasn’t ruled out the possibility that Rich had ties to Wikileaks. Now, we know that it is Bauman who is saying that, but do we really know that this is how the Rich family feels? Do we really know what they have said about Wheeler? Could Bauman be encouraging the Rich family to go against this theory?
- What have the Rich family actually been quoted as saying about Detective Wheeler?
According to a family friend of the Rich’s, they were not upset about Wheeler’s progress in the investigation; in fact, they commended Detective Wheeler for uncovering new information related to Rich’s murder just hours before the story went viral in the media. Suddenly, their tone changed after Bauman intervened. Butowsky said, “They had heard Rich was possibly linked to Wikileaks for almost eight months. There is nothing outrageous here.”
The night before the story broke about Rich’s involvement with WikiLeaks on May 15, “not only did Mr. Rich say he appreciated what Rod had done and the new information that he got, but asked to add to the story,” Butowsky continued. “Nine hours later, the only thing that changed was Brad Bauman, Democrat crisis management person – that’s all that happened.”
This is quite telling in my opinion, and it lends me to believe that the DNC has been involved with the murder of Seth Rich from the beginning and are still to this day.
The following is Butowsky’s story concerning his involvement with the Rich family:
Butowsky first contacted Rich’s parents on Facebook weeks after Rich was murdered. He wanted to reveal to them sensitive information he had heard about their son and give his condolences.
“I never met them before – and my only purpose was to share this one piece of information that might help them feel a little bit better. I had looked them up online and heard that they weren’t getting any information,” he said. “I shared with them what I knew. They said, ‘We don’t believe you.’ I said, ‘Fine, I don’t know you. I just wanted to make sure that if I could bring relief to somebody that I did.”
When Butowsky asked Rich’s parents whether law-enforcement officials had made any progress in finding their son’s murderer, they said the details surrounding Rich’s death remained a mystery.
“I said, ‘By the way, how are things going? I heard you are not getting anything, and I cannot imagine what this must be like.’ And they said, ‘Nobody is telling us anything. We haven’t heard from the D.C. police at all,” Butowsky recalled.
He suggested the family hire a private detective. When they told him they couldn’t afford an investigator, Butowsky offered to pay for one.
“My heart was like breaking for these people,” he said. “I said, ‘I’ll pay for it for you.’”
Butowsky said he finds Bauman’s involvement with the family extremely suspicious, and he is calling on the family to expose the DNC’s involvement and what he believes is obstruction of the murder investigation.
“Mr. Rich is a good man, but if Mr. Rich doesn’t stand up and tell the truth, he is complicit in this,” he said. “It’s really sad that Mr. Rich lost his son. But it’s really sad that Mr. Rich is complicit in keeping this Russian lie, apparently, alive.”
I have another question I would like to have answered: Why didn’t the DNC offer a reward for any information on the murder of Seth Rich? They barely batted an eye but sent out damage control by Brad Bauman.
Now, to switch to a breaking development that is highly controversial and beyond the human pale of comprehension. But before I do that, I do want to point out that the crime scene of the Seth Rich murder was captured on video by cams worn by three police officers on the scene. This material has not been released by the DC police which is very strange and unusual in itself. Note also, the following:
Seth Rich’s murder was acoustically captured by the ShotSpotter system.
This system will let us know how many shots were fired and more importantly how far apart the shots were. If an execution had taken place I would you would hear an unrushed pull of the trigger [POP… POP] but in a hasty robbery gone bad, perhaps two fast POPPOP. If indeed this was a robbery and Seth Rich being shot in the back, you have to wonder was he running away from the threat after breaking free (note he was allegedly “covered in bruises”), was he walking away thinking the robbers just let him go? Were his clothes torn? Knees scuffed from a running fall? His father stated his wristwatch was torn, was he being held? Perhaps he did break free and was making a break for it when the shooters fired at him? Were the shots at close range? Certainly a professional killer would know about ShotSpotter sensors being in the area? Or if a quick hired kill from an amateur maybe not? So many questions…and unfortunately the autopsy is not a public record. The police report is available at the HEAVY.com weblink. . As you can see, not much information. There were officers at the scene wearing bodycams, I wonder is the video possible to obtain? Seth was reported to be conscious and breathing when officers arrived at the scene.

Seth Rich supposedly died in the Hospital after going into ICU from surgery, and was expected to live. The shooter and the murderer of Seth Rich may be two different people. The wife of the doctor who over saw Seth Rich at the hospital has also been a DNC fundraiser. Lisa Kountoupes is the wife of Dr. Jack Sava, who was assigned to watch over Seth Rich at the hospital where he died. As a Clinton administration veteran, Kountoupes had been working on everything from drug approval reform to cybersecurity and recently appeared on the first lobbying contract for the messaging app Slack Communications.
According to the D.C. Metropolitan Police Department Public Incident Report CCN #16113797 Seth Rich was shot at 4:20 a.m. on July 10, 2016.
The public narrative reads as follows: “CIC reports the sound of gunshots at 2134 Flagler Pl. NW. Upon arriving to the scene, the decedent was laying in the Southwest corner of the intersection of W St. and Flagler Pl. NW. The decedent was conscious and breathing with apparent gunshot wound(s) to the back. The decedent was transported to local area hospital and was pronounced by attending physician at 0557 hours.”
The report makes it clear that the DNC staffer was “conscious and breathing” when he was transported to a local area hospital.
Based on a May 16 Intellihub report by Shepard Ambellas titled: “D.C. surgeon who operated on Seth Rich: ‘The DNC staffer was alive and well after surgery, before a group of LEOs showed up to the ICU’,” Rich was taken to Medstar Washington Hospital Center which is located just 3 minutes away from where he was shot.
According to Ambellas’ report, “A 4-year resident surgeon at Washington Hospital Center claims that Seth Rich was alive and recovering well in facility’s Intensive Care Unit (ICU) after being treated for a total of 3 routine gunshot wounds — that is until a number of law enforcement officers arrived eight hours later kicking most everyone out of the ICU and physically barring doctors and others from attending to Rich.”
So who was attending to Rich as all of this was taking place?
MedStar Health’s website states: “Jack Sava, MD, is director of the Gold Surgery team at MedStar Washington Hospital Center. Dr. Sava’s team manages a broad spectrum of urgent general surgical conditions (including problems of the intestine, gallbladder, stomach, liver, and other abdominal organs) and staffs the MedStar trauma unit, a Level-1 trauma center.”
As director of the Gold Surgery team, Dr. Sava should have been in charge of the operation and would have been privy to access Rith’s room at all times.
Dr. Jack Alfred Sava, a.k.a. Jack A Kountoupes, a.k.a. Jack A Ateljevich, is related to Lisa M Kountoupes, according to Radaris records.
Both Jack Sava and Lisa Kountoupes appeared on the MV DSCC 2015 guest list.
Moreover, Lisa Kountoupes was a co-host for the Kate McGinty “Democrat for United States Senate fundraiser,” along with the Podesta brothers which took place on Feb. 22, 2016, which can be found in the Wikileaks “Podesta emails.”
Now, as I said earlier, we are getting ready to look at some new information that has come to light by the brilliant investigator, George Webb…God bless him.
Here is the video in question, and although Webb does four or five videos a day, this one will give you a quick look at the new information on the Seth Rich murder investigation George has uncovered.
Published on May 30, 2017
Seth Rich’s Murderer is Alpha Jalloh
I will give you a short synopsis on the information, but I warn you it is beyond the pale in its scope of shock.
Of the most important of these three believed to be assassins of Seth Rich, this report says, is Alpha Jalloh, whom though identified in his Washington D.C charging document as being 18-years-old, the SVR had previously identified, in 2015, as being 26-years-old and a “high level fence and shipper” belonging to an international car theft criminal organization operating in New York City and New Jersey.
In fact, this report continues, it was through the SVR’s electronic surveillance of Alpha Jalloh that concerns were first raised about Seth Rich when in early July, 2016, this international criminal, who had been “suspiciously” released after his 2015 arrest, and believed to be an FBI informant, was discovered to be in direct contact with both Hillary Clinton’s New York City campaign office and the DNC office in Washington D.C..
It appears that the DNC has been tied to MS-13 gangs in doing their dirty work. The perp in question, Alpha Jalloh is an immigrant and a gang member that penetrated our border under the Obama Administration as most MS-13 members did. This is shocking and frightening to believe the DNC could have ties to this gang.
I will say that George Webb is connected to intelligence sources from all over the world. I have the greatest confidence in his work.
At the same time it is believed that President Trump knows of this, and is waiting patiently for this operation to break wide open. He has recently signed the below executive order, which would enable the prosecution of such individuals as the MS-13 gang members, who are immigrants. It is well known President Trump is being very active in pursuing these gang members. We must pray for all those who are working to solve the Seth Rich murder and for President Trump as he pursues these criminal gangs, who are being used by factions within our government to perform criminal acts.
Presidential Executive Order on Enforcing Federal Law with Respect to Transnational Criminal Organizations and Preventing International Trafficking
– – – – – – –
ENFORCING FEDERAL LAW WITH RESPECT TO TRANSNATIONAL CRIMINAL ORGANIZATIONS AND PREVENTING INTERNATIONAL TRAFFICKING
By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, it is hereby ordered as follows:
Section 1. Purpose. Transnational criminal organizations and subsidiary organizations, including transnational drug cartels, have spread throughout the Nation, threatening the safety of the United States and its citizens. These organizations derive revenue through widespread illegal conduct, including acts of violence and abuse that exhibit a wanton disregard for human life. They, for example, have been known to commit brutal murders, rapes, and other barbaric acts.
These groups are drivers of crime, corruption, violence, and misery. In particular, the trafficking by cartels of controlled substances has triggered a resurgence in deadly drug abuse and a corresponding rise in violent crime related to drugs. Likewise, the trafficking and smuggling of human beings by transnational criminal groups risks creating a humanitarian crisis. These crimes, along with many others, are enriching and empowering these organizations to the detriment of the American people.
A comprehensive and decisive approach is required to dismantle these organized crime syndicates and restore safety for the American people.
Sec. 2. Policy. It shall be the policy of the executive branch to:
(a) strengthen enforcement of Federal law in order to thwart transnational criminal organizations and subsidiary organizations, including criminal gangs, cartels, racketeering organizations, and other groups engaged in illicit activities that present a threat to public safety and national security and that are related to, for example:
(i) the illegal smuggling and trafficking of humans, drugs or other substances, wildlife, and weapons;
(ii) corruption, cybercrime, fraud, financial crimes, and intellectual-property theft; or
(iii) the illegal concealment or transfer of proceeds derived from such illicit activities.
(b) ensure that Federal law enforcement agencies give a high priority and devote sufficient resources to efforts to identify, interdict, disrupt, and dismantle transnational criminal organizations and subsidiary organizations, including through the investigation, apprehension, and prosecution of members of such organizations, the extradition of members of such organizations to face justice in the United States and, where appropriate and to the extent permitted by law, the swift removal from the United States of foreign nationals who are members of such organizations;
(c) maximize the extent to which all Federal agencies share information and coordinate with Federal law enforcement agencies, as permitted by law, in order to identify, interdict, and dismantle transnational criminal organizations and subsidiary organizations;
(d) enhance cooperation with foreign counterparts against transnational criminal organizations and subsidiary organizations, including, where appropriate and permitted by law, through sharing of intelligence and law enforcement information and through increased security sector assistance to foreign partners by the Attorney General and the Secretary of Homeland Security;
(e) develop strategies, under the guidance of the Secretary of State, the Attorney General, and the Secretary of Homeland Security, to maximize coordination among agencies — such as through the Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Forces (OCDETF), Special Operations Division, the OCDETF Fusion Center, and the International Organized Crime Intelligence and Operations Center — to counter the crimes described in subsection (a) of this section, consistent with applicable Federal law; and
(f) pursue and support additional efforts to prevent the operational success of transnational criminal organizations and subsidiary organizations within and beyond the United States, to include prosecution of ancillary criminal offenses, such as immigration fraud and visa fraud, and the seizure of the implements of such organizations and forfeiture of the proceeds of their criminal activity.
Sec. 3. Implementation. In furtherance of the policy set forth in section 2 of this order, the Secretary of State, the Attorney General, the Secretary of Homeland Security, and the Director of National Intelligence, or their designees, shall co chair and direct the existing interagency Threat Mitigation Working Group (TMWG), which shall:
(a) work to support and improve the coordination of Federal agencies’ efforts to identify, interdict, investigate, prosecute, and dismantle transnational criminal organizations and subsidiary organizations within and beyond the United States;
(b) work to improve Federal agencies’ provision, collection, reporting, and sharing of, and access to, data relevant to Federal efforts against transnational criminal organizations and subsidiary organizations;
(c) work to increase intelligence and law enforcement information sharing with foreign partners battling transnational criminal organizations and subsidiary organizations, and to enhance international operational capabilities and cooperation;
(d) assess Federal agencies’ allocation of monetary and personnel resources for identifying, interdicting, and dismantling transnational criminal organizations and subsidiary organizations, as well as any resources that should be redirected toward these efforts;
(e) identify Federal agencies’ practices, any absence of practices, and funding needs that might hinder Federal efforts to effectively combat transnational criminal organizations and subsidiary organizations;
(f) review relevant Federal laws to determine existing ways in which to identify, interdict, and disrupt the activity of transnational criminal organizations and subsidiary organizations, and ascertain which statutory authorities, including provisions under the Immigration and Nationality Act, could be better enforced or amended to prevent foreign members of these organizations or their associates from obtaining entry into the United States and from exploiting the United States immigration system;
(g) in the interest of transparency and public safety, and in compliance with all applicable law, including the Privacy Act, issue reports at least once per quarter detailing convictions in the United States relating to transnational criminal organizations and their subsidiaries;
(h) to the extent deemed useful by the Co-Chairs, and in their discretion, identify methods for Federal agencies to coordinate, as permitted by law, with State, tribal, and local governments and law enforcement agencies, foreign law enforcement partners, public-health organizations, and non governmental organizations in order to aid in the identification, interdiction, and dismantling of transnational criminal organizations and subsidiary organizations;
(i) to the extent deemed useful by the Co-Chairs, and in their discretion, consult with the Office of National Drug Control Policy in implementing this order; and
(j) within 120 days of the date of this order, submit to the President a report on transnational criminal organizations and subsidiary organizations, including the extent of penetration of such organizations into the United States, and issue additional reports annually thereafter to describe the progress made in combating these criminal organizations, along with any recommended actions for dismantling them.
Sec. 4. General Provisions. (a) Nothing in this order shall be construed to impair or otherwise affect:
(i) the authority granted by law to an executive department or agency, or the head thereof; or
(ii) the functions of the Director of the Office of Management and Budget relating to budgetary, administrative, or legislative proposals.
(b) This order shall be implemented consistent with applicable law and subject to the availability of appropriations.
(c) This order is not intended to, and does not, create any right or benefit, substantive or procedural, enforceable at law or in equity by any party against the United States, its departments, agencies, or entities, its officers, employees, or agents, or any other person.
