In many circles the thought that Seth Rich, former DNC staffer who was found dead under unbelievably weird circumstances (and his killer was never found), was now what we know as the “DNC leaker,” — the person who might have single-handedly brought down any hope of Hillary Clinton becoming President.
While that theory will probably stay in the land of conspiracy for now, what just happened to the man who offered a handsome reward for info on Seth Rich’s murder will surely ignite the topic once more…
Daily Caller reports:
A well-known conservative lobbyist was sprayed with a “caustic substance” by a masked attacker outside his Arlington home Tuesday, according to local police.
Jack Burkman, who made headlines again in 2016 by offering a $130,000 reward for information on the mysterious murder of DNC staffer Seth Rich, was reportedly attacked Tuesday. Local police told The Washington Post they have not yet determined the perpetrator’s identity.
Burkman told WaPo he was returning from the grocery store when a man wearing a ski mask jumped out of a black SUV, sprayed him in the face with what appeared to be pepper spray, and hit him the head before speeding away.
The Republican strategist said he thought “the end is coming” when he spotted the man approaching him, adding that the attack “seemed professional.” He had trouble pinning down who exactly might have cause to attack him.
“You could have 10 different causal nexi,” he said.
While Burkman certainly drew the ire of many in the capital by fanning Seth Rich conspiracy theories and giving them a platform on a website he created for that purpose, the attack may have been motivated by more recent developments.
Trump campaign official Rick Gates, who is under investigation for fraud and conspiracy due to his overseas lobbying activity, recently appeared in a video shown at a fundraiser that Burkman organized to raise money for his legal defense. Gates was chastised during a recent court appearance for appearing the video as it appears to violate his gag order.
Burkman responded by publicly criticizing the Judge in two news releases and a news conference.
