The Seth Rich murder conspiracy is being used to sell face cream

The ad hawking the wrinkle-fighting formula is very clearly a scam. Yet it found its way onto an email list managed by consultants who have worked for some of the most prominent politicians in the country, including President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence.

Websites traced to the same GOP vendors, Indiana-based digital consultancy the Prosper Group and an affiliated firm, have promoted the same conspiracy theory: that Seth Rich, a staffer for the Democratic National Committee, was gunned down in Washington, D.C., last year due to his involvement in the hacking of the DNC and the release of thousands of internal emails by the group WikiLeaks.
