12. One thing for sure...

This is a developing story to watch. But, like others have posted, I have my suspicions about the trustworthiness of Jack Burkman.

Supposedly a "family values" republican whose name turned up in the DC Madam's phone database. Was known to be anti-Trump, but ended up fundraising for Trump's campaign.

I don't "get" his motivation behind the $100k reward for credible leads in DNC data analyst Seth Rich's murder. That's 4x more than the DC police reward and 3x more than Wikileak's strange reward. A republican do-gooder decoy? A Russian operative himself, trying to silence anyone with bonafide leads to the facts?

And why would a retired Vietnam Nam-era intelligence operative seek Burkman out with sensitive info about the Russians except to collect the $100k reward? How would he even be privy to information THAT threatening to national security and deeply sensitive? Wouldn't his sense of duty to country have motivated him to contact US Intelligence or communicate with his retired intelligence buddies that still had ties to intelligence contacts currently on the job?

Anyway, enquiring minds want to know...
