Paranoia?

A number of leftwing Democrats are beginning to sound like Vast Right Wing Conspiracy sorts, convinced or at least considering whether recent deaths of three DNC employees are House of Cards actions by the Hildebeast.  Now Wikileaks founder Julian Assange seems to admit that one of the unlikely dead was their source for the DNC leaks:
On July 8, 2016, 27 year-old Democratic staffer Seth Conrad Rich was murdered in Washington DC. The killer or killers took nothing from their victim, leaving behind his wallet, watch and phone.
Shortly after the killing, Redditors and social media users were pursuing a “lead” saying that Rich was en route to the FBI the morning of his murder, apparently intending to speak to special agents about an “ongoing court case” possibly involving the Clinton family.
Seth Rich’s father Joel told reporters, “If it was a robbery — it failed because he still has his watch, he still has his money — he still has his credit cards, still had his phone so it was a wasted effort except we lost a life.”...
Now this…Julian Assange suggested on Tuesday that Seth Rich was a Wikileaks informant.

Was Seth Rich, the source of #DNCleaks, murdered? https://t.co/bKwYQJcmQp— Mike Cernovich (@Cernovich) August 10, 2016
Julian Assange seems to suggests on Dutch television program Nieuwsuur that Seth Rich was the source for the Wikileaks-exposed DNC emails and was murdered.
Seems implausible: he wasn't an ambassador.

In the interview on Nieuwsuur Assange compares the fate of Rich to the concerns of other Wikileaks sources - which certainly seems an oblique way of implying he could be a source. Add to that, the fact that Wikileaks is offering $20,000 for information about Rich's death. Assange seems to have more than a passing interest in Rich which is more reason to believe that Rich was a source.

Death seems to follow the Clintons everywhere they go.
