The Department of Justice has told the U.S. Attorney’s Office for Washington D.C to release their records regarding the murder of former Democratic National Committee employee Seth Rich. Attorney Ty Clevenger had previously requested records related to the murder, but was turned down by the U.S. Attorney’s office at the time.
In a written update from Clevenger he shared the bizarre reasoning by the Attorney’s office for holding the documents stating their “ridiculous excuse for withholding the Seth Rich file, i.e., because I had not submitted a death certificate to prove that Mr. Rich was dead.” Clevenger went on to say “Bear in mind that I had requested records pertaining to the investigation of a murder. If Mr. Rich’s murder was being investigated, would that not necessarily infer that he was dead? I thought the answer was obvious, and I’m glad to see that Mr. O’Neill agrees.”
After an additional appeal, DOJ’s Sean O’Neill overturned the previous decision and the U.S. Attorney’s Office is now expected to release records about the case. Clevenger says he will share all related documents as they are released on his blog linked below.
