Dear Substack Readers, This is a message from John Leake. I thank everyone for reading this and other columns. I greatly appreciate your kind words of praise and encouragement. I have been investigating the Seth Rich case since 2016, but have never had a forum in which to write about it. The way our authorities and mainstream media handled it displays the same pattern of propaganda and concealment that was so evident in the way this same Establishment handled the COVID-19 crisis.

Our family prays for resolution to this case. It’s obviously NOT robbery. My brother was robbed in DC when he was visiting there as a recent mes school graduate. He was beaten up (very bruised face, etc.), the assailants took his wallet, his watch, and his rings. So the Rich murder seems more like an execution in light of this personal anecdote AND all the other evidence.

Appreciate your post today. I was thinking about this young man's execution and Rosenstein's dirty tricks gang. I hope at the least there is public opprobrium enough to make them aware everyone is looking at them. I want them NERVOUS.

There are lots of good people that will do the necessary work and go after them all. They just have to be let into the DOJ, etc. The Establishment has to be ruthlessly weeded out. And their cog oilers -the administrative assistants, all of it.

Yes, indeed, why not explore this hypothesis? Thank you and Dr. McCullough for what you do. It is appreciated.

Dear Sirs, Please reconsider your paywall firewall. I'm an impoverished UK pensioner & just can't afford any more outgoings from my meager pension.

Thank you both for your enlightening & educational posts.

When our totally corrupt FBI wants decades before releasing info to us we already know they are covering up their own crimes or the crimes of one of their evil elite criminals?!?

Thank you!

Please correct the date of Mr Rich's murder that is underneath his picture at the top of this article. The "2026" is very misleading....

Thanks for catching that! It was actually an eyesight problem -- the caption script size is tiny so I didn't see the mistake.

Thank you for this gripping story. Perhaps you, Mr. Leake, are the good investigator who can solve this mystery.

I followed the Seth Rich story back in 2016 when it happened. There was a lot of fishy stuff that went on re the case. I sure hope somebody gets to the bottom of it soon! Seth Rich deserves justice!

There are many unexplained murder mysteries floating around as well as people who go missing, especially in our National and State parks. Thanks for the info on Seth Rich. Obviously he knew too much.

" ... unexplained murder mysteries ... especially in our National and State parks."

"Hi, I'm Vince Foster. Remember me? I was called by Ken Starr to testify against Hillary Clinton. But instead I committed suicide on a park bench in Fort Marcy Park by shooting myself twice in the back of the head."

Wowzers!! I bet you have a story to tell someday. I can't say that I remember your event but I worked nights back then and had no time to watch TV for any reason.

Once again stellar journalism and coverage, Mr. Leake. You ask solid questions. The answers, like the real motives for much of the evil in this world will never be “officially “ revealed. We always receive the motive they decide the general public should believe. Those who conspired control the official and traditional media outlets and fund the federal intelligence and enforcement agencies. Without folks like you, no one would have a path to at least some of the cover-up.

Pretty amazing that his parents went after I think Hannity for suggesting it was suspicious - you'd think they'd want to get to the truth as to what happened to their son.

Expand full comment

Who knows--they may have been warned about straying from the lie. It's not natural for any parents to just accept a ridiculous looking "robbery".

And a beautiful, idealistic, principled, and brave young man - shot dead. Someday we pray, Seth will be heralded - a political hero of sorts.

there were also security cameras in the area where he was shot...

Aaron Mate’s reporting on Russia, Russia, Russia… Under oath CrowdStrike’s CEO walked back (wouldn’t, couldn’t) confirm proof that Russia did diddly. More perplexing still, the FBI never laid hands on the DNC server. Mate’ had addressed this (& more) at length on his show PushBack: https://twitter.com/aaronjmate/status/1450849286153977859?s=20&t=CXa7PJeyNzJlcTLGs_9uFg
