The name Seth Rich keeps coming up years after his murder. Many still believe he was at the center of the massive document dump to Wikileaks in 2016, which occurred only days after his murder. However, a newly released deposition by an award winning journalist from earlier this summer demonstrates that Rich was in contact with Wikileaks and requesting payment.
CD Media reports:
A deposition by Pulitzer-Prize-winning journalist Sy Hersh has been released in which he confirms the FBI had information former DNC staffer Seth Rich was communicating with Wikileaks and requesting payment
Meanwhile, I’ve been authorized to release the transcript of a July 15, 2020 deposition of Pulitzer-Prize-winning journalist Sy Hersh, wherein Mr. Hersh is forced to admit that he did speak with a senior intelligence official about an FBI report about Mr. Rich and Wikileaks. That contradicts much of what Mr. Hersh has said publicly since early 2017 (more on that below), writes Ty Clevenger on Lawflog.com.

As my regular readers know, Mr. Rich was murdered in Washington, D.C. on July 10, 2016, and shortly thereafter Wikileaks published thousands of DNC emails that were very embarrassing to then-Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. On August 9, 2016, Mr. Assange intimated that the DNC emails were obtained from Mr. Rich, not Russian hackers.
If you doubt my source, recall that three weeks ago — after three years of denials — the FBI was finally forced to admit that it had thousands of records about Mr. Rich, as well as his laptop. Meanwhile, virtually no one in official Washington has lifted a finger to help.

Somehow, I think the woman at NewsGuard that attacked my personal site claiming that we were promoting conspiracy theories about Seth Rich, telling readers that it had been debunked with nothing more than conspiracy theories without evidence by DC police may just have to eat some serious crow. Then again, we know that the people at NewsGuard appointed themselves as fact checkers and truth tellers who simply were out to smear outlets actually telling the truth.
We’ll see what happens with this in the coming days.
