In 2016, it was speculated there was a connection with the murder of Seth Rich, a 27 year old DNC employee and the DNC email release to Wikileaks. The controversy swirling around this event continues to today as commentators and journalists are forced to retract their articles and issue public apology when they suggest that Seth Rich was murdered for releasing the DNC emails to Wikileaks. A recent article by Politifact connected with the Poynter Institute titled Mueller Report Aims to Squash WikiLeaks Seth Rich Conspiracy Theory, ends with quote - 'Investigators acknowledge that they cant be totally sure how those files were transferred. The material might have been downloaded or hand-delivered. But one thing is certain: It wasnt Seth Rich.' In a Dutch news interview in August of 2016, Assange said he wouldn't disclose if Seth Rich was the source of the DNC emails but essentially said these are the risks that are faced when contributing to Wikileaks. The police believed Seth Rich was the victim of a botched robbery. Bruises on Richs hands and face showed signs of a struggle, and his wallet, watch and cell phone were not taken. The emails of John Podesta, the former chairman of the 2016 Hillary Clinton presidential campaign were among the DNC emails published by Wikileaks. He previously served as chief of staff to President Bill Clinton and Counselor to President Barack Obama. In the emails John Podesta writes the word pizza 78 times and cheese another 90 or so times. Citizen journalists worldwide launched investigations and unearthed disturbing pedophile-related images, art work and powerful associations about a pizza restaurant owners instagram account and archived it before it was switched to private. This was the pizzagate catalyst sparked outrage across the world and framed Comet Ping Pong within the cross hairs of a potential child trafficking pedophile network. Some believe the unraveling of the pizzagate thread also cost Hillary Clinton the 2016 election. To some, pizzagate was seen as a hemorrhaging national security emergency connecting pedophilia and child trafficking into politics and the deepstate. In the last few years, the mind blowing media back-pedaling and behind the scenes scrambling associated with pizzagate was unlike anything seen before. Whenever the word pizzagate was uttered, it was condemned by the ubiquitous term 'fake news' implying we're asking you not to think for yourself. Ok? For many, the evidence in the emails are enough to research deeper but what will it take for an official investigation to commence? By the end of 2016, the mainstream and social media were likely ordered to distract, censor and condemn anything related to pizzagate. This level of response or protest exposed to the world the staggering control of a highly organized, bought and paid for fourth column in the United States. I suspect one phase of this action was to morph pizzagate into Russiagate. Even if most people didn't learn about pizzagate until a gunman visited Comet Ping Pong, around that time, the citizen journalist online investigation was at its peak and the mainstream attention brought public focus onto reality of child trafficking networks within our government and high society and public institutions. We hear a collage of voices that include past guests, Dr. Lori Handrahan, author of Epidemic: America's Trade In Child Rape, and Nick Bryant author of The Franklin Scandal: A Story of Powerbrokers, Child Abuse & Betrayal, we'll also hear related news gathering such as from youtube investigator Titus Frost, and Reality Check with Ben Swan. This one hour will barely address an entrenched system of child trafficking and abuse in the United States and worldwide.
