Not a week goes by without Tomi Lahren, the 24 year old outspoken news personality, setting tongues a-wag with her controversial, spirited comments.

This weekend, the “Blaze” host and South Dakota native made quite a buzz by giving credence to conspiracy theories swirling around the unsolved murder of 27-year old DNC staffer Seth Rich in July.

In an interview on the Daily Caller’s Jamie Weinstein Show, Lahren didn’t pull her punches against the Clintons, suggesting that Hillary and Bill could have be behind the deaths of half a dozen political opponents — and government officials linked to them — who died under questionable circumstances over the years.

Halfway through the segment, Weinstein — a conservative journalist — asked Lahren about her view that Bernie Sanders is only supporting Hillary because he’s scared he would otherwise mysteriously disappear, citing the Clintons’ “high body count.”

“Do you really believe that the Clintons are killing people?” he asks.

“You know, sometimes we look at patterns and we look at things that are happening, and sometimes you can’t dismiss everything as a conspiracy,” Lahren replied. “There has been some mysterious circumstances that have surrounded what we just saw with the DNC leaks, then what happened to [ Seth Rich], who worked at the DNC that was in charge of that.”

The tragic death of Seth Rich, who was mysteriously gunned down in July in what originally appeared to have been a botched robbery —although he still had his wallet, watch and phone when police discovered his body — has sent the Internet into a frenzy, with many suggesting (with no substantiation) that Rich was actually a FBI informant who was planning on releasing sensitive information about the DNC and the Clintons.

When Weinstein mentioned that Rich’s grieving family doesn’t believe the conspiracy theories and has asked that people stop  pushing unproven theories about his murder, Lahren didn’t buy it and retorted:

“His family doesn’t want to be in a body bag either, Jamie! I’ve gotta be honest with you.”

“Do you think he might have been killed by the Clintons?”

“I don’t know if he was killed by the Clintons or a Clinton hit person,” she replied. “I’m not going to sit here and be what you want me to be, which is a conspiracy theorist.”

But her demurral was too late to stop some social media commenters from poking fun at the University of Nevada-Las Vegas graduate.

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has also floated the conspiracy theories that Rich was murdered because he had been one of the confidential sources in Wikileaks’ DNC email dump, which lead to the resignation of disgraced DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz.

WikiLeaks has offered a $20,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of Rich’s killer. Washington DC’s Metropolitan Police Department is offering a $25,000 reward.
