We first reported in late July that Texas businessman Ed Butowsky filed a lawsuit where he outed reporter Ellen Ratner as his source for information on Seth Rich. The DNC operative was murdered in the summer of 2016 in Washington DC. His murder was never solved. According to the lawsuit Seth Rich provided WikiLeaks the DNC emails before the 2016 election, not Russia.
This totally destroys the FBI and Mueller’s claims that Russians hacked the DNC to obtain these emails.
Butowsky claims in his lawsuit:
Ms. Rattner said Mr. Assange told her that Seth Rich and his brother, Aaron, were responsible for releasing the DNC emails to Wikileaks. Ms. Rattner said Mr. Assange wanted the information relayed to Seth’s parents, as it might explain the motive for Seth’s murder.
On November 9 2016 Ellen Ratner admitted publicly that she met with Julian Assange for three hours the Saturday before the 2016 election. According to Ratner, Julian Assange told her the leaks were not from the Russians, they were from an internal source from the Hillary Campaign.
Please read the rest at GW linked at the top.
Also, the clip of Assange talking to Hannity about the reward pretty much nails it for me.
I have somewhere the interview with Assange by Hannity, where Julian specifically states that he is offering reward for information leading to the killer of Seth Rich by name, because he wants to protect his sources. But he does not directly say Seth Rich was his source on the DNC email leaks. Seth Rich did have access to that material however.
Once I find that clip, and I know I have it somewhere, I will restore it and add it to this post.
