Is this ‘Woodward And Bernstein’ breaking news? Or is it ‘Tinfoil hat conspiracy’?
Just when you think the story was shelved, the Seth Rich story bounced right back into the spotlight.
Last week, a Fox News reporter told us how a Private Eye had learned about a Wikileaks connection. That story has since been recanted.
Rod Wheeler, a Fox News contributor whose investigation into Rich’s death was funded by Fox News regular Ed Butowsky, told Fox5 on Monday: ‘My investigation up to this point shows there was some degree of email exchange between Seth Rich and WikiLeaks.’
Wheeler’s claims fanned conspiracy theories surrounding Rich’s death, but he made a dramatic reversal the next day, telling Buzzfeed he had no first hand evidence that Rich sent emails to a contact at WikiLeaks. — DailyMail
And that’s the end of it, right?
Seth’s family sent a cease-and-desist letter to the reporter:
A lawyer for the Rich family sent a cease and desist letter Thursday to Rod Wheeler, a private investigator and Fox News contributor who had been working on behalf of the family.
Put a fork in that story, it’s done?
You would think so. And from that PARTICULAR source and angle… you would be right.
But this story is now looking like a bad game of whack-a-mole.

Another guy is now claiming PERSONAL involvement… PERSONAL knowledge of the #Wikileaks connection.
Hannity is getting involved, and calling for Congress to look into it.

Kim is defending his credibility with tweets like this one.

The question is — when each side calls the other ‘conspiracy’…
Which side is right?
