Speaking with SiriusXM host Mark Thompson, Brazile, whose explosive new book Hacks has caused embarrassment for the Democratic establishment, spoke of her deep affection for Rich.
"He was my child. I loved him. He worked in the voting rights division, I was the vice chair over that division. He was one of two staff people. I love him, I miss him. He was a patriot," said Brazile.
"I hope to God we find out who murdered Seth Rich," she added.
Beginning to cry, Brazile responded to a question about her feeling responsible for his death by stating, "He was my child….I have been in politics all my adult life, the only children I have are the children that I have hired. They're my children."
In her book, Brazile also reveals that she was frightened for her life after Rich's murder, beefing up her home surveillance and shutting the blinds in her office so she could not be seen by snipers.
The murder of Seth Rich remains unsolved, but the mainstream media continues to dismiss any questions about it as "conspiracy theories".
