Federal Election Commission records show that CrowdStrike, an FBI contractor and private cyber security firm, received a $98,849.84 check from the Democratic National Committee the day after slain DNC staffer Seth Rich was murdered.
Rich, 27, worked as the voter expansion data director at the DNC for two years. Rich had been working for the DNC at a time when emails from the organization were provided to WikiLeaks for publication.
The series of emails revealed that high-ranking DNC officials and the Clinton team sabotaged Sanders’ candidacy, used racist, anti-gay and sexist slurs when referring to constituents. The emails, indicating the party was manipulating the primary race in favor of Clinton, led to Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s resignation as DNC chair.

Seth Rich had just accepted a job with Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign before he was killed near his apartment in an affluent Washington, D.C. neighborhood.
In the summer of 2016, in the heat of a highly contentious presidential campaign, Rich was fatally shot twice in the back, and his wallet, credit cards, watch and phone were left in his possession. Still, the Metropolitan Police Department has described his murder as a “botched robbery.”
Private investigators, however, have previously claimed Rich was the source WikiLeaks used to obtain thousands of DNC emails released on the eve of the party’s presidential nominating convention last July.
Less than a month after Rich was murdered, attorney Shawn Lucas, 38, was found dead in his bathroom on Aug. 2nd, 2016.
The next day, CrowdStrike received a check for $113,645.77 from the DNC.
Lucas delivered a lawsuit to DNC headquarters for a local court in early July 2016. The suit alleged the Democratic Party committed fraud by rigging their primary election in favor of Hillary Clinton.
The source of the checks is the Federal Election Commission (FEC).
