In this interview, Julian Assange clearly alludes to the fact that Seth Rich was the source of the DNC leaks. Looking at this objectively, it seems highly likely that Assange accidentally painted himself into a corner with his words, and quickly realized what he had done, yet held true to his stance on never revealing sources. The transcript of the interview is below. Reading the words makes it all the more clear, as no one would have said it the way he did, without the obvious implication that Seth Rich was in fact a WikiLeaks source.

Interviewer: “Do you even know what you’re sitting on?"
Julian Assange: “WikiLeaks never sits on material. Whistleblowers go to significant efforts to get us material, and often very significant risks. There is a 27 year old, that works for the DNC, who was shot in the back, murdered, just a few weeks ago, for unknown reasons, as he was walking down the street in Washington."
The interviewer interjects: “That was just a robbery I believe, wasn’t it?”
Assange: “No, there is no finding so..."
Interviewer: “what are you suggesting, what are you suggesting?"
Assange: “I am suggesting that our sources are... take risks, and they are… they become concerned… uhh to see things occurring… uhh like that.
Interviewer: “But was he one of your sources then… I mean?”
Assange: “We don’t comment on who our sources are."
Interviewer: “Then why make the suggestion, about a young guy being shot in the streets of Washington?”
Assange: “Because we have to understand… uhh how high the stakes are, in the United States, and that our sources are… you know, our sources face serious risks, thats why they come to us so we can protect their anonymity."
Interviewer: "But it’s quite something to suggest a murder... that’s basically what you’re doing.”
Assange: "Well others have suggested… that."
"Uhhh we uhh are investigating to understand uhhh what happened uhh in that situation with Seth Rich, I think it is a concerning situation, there is not a conclusion yet, we wouldn’t be willing to state a conclusion, but we are concerned about it. More importantly, umm a variety of WikiLeaks sources are concerned when that kind of thing happens."
