Washington, D.C. lobbyist who has been on the hunt for Seth Rich’s killer
found a “credible” witness who will identify the two men he believes
murdered the DNC staffer.

private investigative team to solve the Seth Rich murder mystery, toldThe

murder investigation,” Burkman toldThe
Gateway Pundit in an exclusive interview Sunday. “After
two long hard years of work, we have a witness who is prepared to identify
the two killers of Seth Rich. One is reportedly a current DEA (Drug
Enforcement Administration) agent, the other is reportedly a current ATF
(Bureau of Alcohol,
Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives) agent”
witness, who “fears for his life,” will be accompanied by armed guards and
disguise his identity as he details how two employees of the United States
government killed Seth in a press conference slated for Tuesday.
All press should attend my press conference TUESDAY at 1:00PM

found him and brought him to us. We have thoroughly vetted this witness
and we believe in this witness,” he said. “He has evidence that

in great fear of his life – that’s why we are going with disguising him,
disguising his voice and everything about him.”

the witness’ testimony confirms two men involved in the shooting.
the witness says matches what the police say and matches what we know from
the surveillance videos,” he said. “The police let me see the video. The
police said the video clearly identifies the pant legs of two men. So,
there were two men involved in the killing that night. I now believe that
in the next 3 to 4 weeks the entire matter will be resolved. It’s the
beginning of the end.”

government employees that killed Rich, but he was unaware Doherty worked

witness himself didn’t know that I had been shot by Kevin Doherty. Before
we even told him that, he told us that Doherty was friends and palled
around with the ATF agent and the DEA agent who shot Seth. That’s why we
think the witness is credible,” he said. “There wasn’t much coverage of my
shooting. The witness didn’t see the coverage and didn’t know. We didn’t
tell him, he told us before we told him.”
