Three people associated with the Democrat National Committee have been found dead.
The circumstances appear mysterious.
Are they connected to the hacked Democrat National Committee emails and to Hillary Clinton?
Are these deaths part of the infamous Clinton body count, or are they unrelated events that conspiracy theorists are using to run wild with speculation?
Writing at Townhall, Rachel Alexander describes the suspicious nature of all three deaths.
The first tragic murder was of Seth Rich.
Rich was a DNC staffer and Alexander writes,
“Some are speculating that Hillary Clinton is behind the murder, because Rich could have been the DNC staffer responsible for leaking the 20,000 damaging DNC emails to Wikileaks.”
Alexander describes the facts surrounding his death:
“Although it is being investigated as a robbery, his wallet, credit cards and watch were not taken. The 27-year old was shot in the back on July 10 at 4:15 a.m. near his affluent neighborhood, while he was reportedly walking home from his girlfriend’s apartment. Police still have no suspects, witnesses or motive. His mother told the local NBC station that there were bruises on his face, knees and hands, apparently from trying to fend off his attackers.”
Shawn Lucas was a filmmaker who became a viral sensation when video emerged of him serving lawsuits to the Democrat National Committee for fraud after Wikileaks released emails showing the committee coordinated against Bernie Sanders in the Democrat primary.
Heat Street reports:
“According to the police report, he was found lying on his bathroom floor by his girlfriend. When paramedics arrived, they found no signs of life.
Some conspiracy theorists are already positing — with no substantiation — that Lucas’ death is part of a broader plot to “cover up” alleged crimes by the DNC or Hillary Clinton. Other recent deaths have also been drawn into this web of theories and speculation. DNC staffer Seth Rich was murdered in DC in July — his killing remains unsolved — and UN official John Ashe died in June in the New York City suburbs in an apparent weightlifting accident. He and a Chinese Clinton donor were facing criminal corruption charges. Additionally, noticeable “space economist” Molly Macauley was mysteriously stabbed to death last month in Baltimore while walking her dogs, Wilga and Leo. These deaths and the decedents’ ties to politics and DC have been feeding into the larger conspiracy narratives bubbling up on the web.”
The final murder victim Alexander writes about is John Ashe.
She describes his death:
“The former President of the United Nations General Assembly, John Ashe, mysteriously passed away on June 22, a few days before he was scheduled to begin pretrial meetings involving shady financial dealings regarding a former Clinton crony. Local police officers said he died from dropping a barbell on his throat while working out, but the UN oddly first claimed he died of a heart attack. The 61-year-old was supposed to testify against Chinese real estate developer Ng Lap Seng, who was implicated in the “Chinagate” scandal for funneling money to the DNC for Bill Clinton through Arkansas restaurant owner Charlie Trie. Ashe was arrested last year for allegedly taking over $3 million in bribes from Chinese businessmen, including over half a million from Ng Lap Se, in exchange for building a United Nations conference center in Macau.
Dominican attorney Henry Shillingford questioned his death, “It is strange for Antigua’s most senior diplomat to be implicated and die under such troubling circumstances.” The New York Post’s Page Six ran a skeptical questioning the circumstances. A source told the paper, “During the trial, the prosecutors would have linked Ashe to the Clinton bagman Ng. It would have been very embarrassing. His death was conveniently timed.”
However, his widow, Dr Anilla Cherian, said it was the third time that her husband had been found collapsed at their home.”
There is no evidence to suggest these deaths are related, or that Clinton or the Democrat National Committee is related to these deaths in any way.
But the circumstances surrounding each loss of life lends to conspiracy buffs pushing their theories of how Hillary and the DNC were connected to these deaths.
Conservatives should be careful not to be distracted by unsubstantiated rumors when Hillary has already presented a target rich environment for attack due based on her proven lies and misdeeds.
