Seth Rich murder and probable leak to Wikileaks kept alive in Butowsky v. Folkenflik NPR et al, Ed Butowsky ups ante in September 30, 2019 amended complaint

Mueller, as a matter of determined policy, omitted key steps which any honest investigator would undertake. He did not commission any forensic examination of the DNC servers. He did not interview Bill Binney. He did not interview Julian Assange. His failure to do any of those obvious things renders his report worthless.”…Craig Murray

“Fox News news analyst Ellen Ratner relayed information from Wikileaks founder Julian Assange to Texas businessman Ed Butowsky regarding Seth Rich’s role in transferring emails to Wikileaks, according to an amended lawsuit that I filed this morning on behalf of Mr. Butowsky.”…Attorney Ty Clevenger

“Who murdered Seth Rich and why?”…Citizen Wells

 

From the Second Amended Complaint in Ed Butowsky v. David Folkenflik, NPR, et al filed September 30, 2019.

“Plaintiff, Ed Butowsky, in his personal and professional capacities, by counsel, pursuant to Rule 15(a)(2) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (the “Rules”), files the following Amended Complaint against Defendants, David Folkenflik (“Folkenflik”), National Public radio, Inc. (“NPR”), Edith Chapin (“Chapin”), Leslie Cook (“Cook”), and Pallavi Gogoi (“Gogoi”), jointly and severally.

Plaintiff seeks (a) compensatory damages and punitive damages in a sum not less than $60,000,000.00, (b) prejudgment interest on the principal sum awarded by the Jury from August 1, 2017 to the date of Judgment at the rate of five percent (5%) per year, and (c) costs – arising out of the Defendants’ defamation per se, business disparagement and civil conspiracy.”

“1. This is a case about collusion between a media correspondent and a lawyer. This case involves misconduct by the unethical and reckless journalist, who was spoon-fed a false narrative about President Trump and Fox News with instructions to leak the fake story online and in social media in the early morning hours of August 1, 2017.
2. The four (4) foundational principles of ethical journalism are:
● Seek Truth and Report It;
● Minimize Harm;
● Act Independently; and
● Be Accountable and Transparent.”

“5. Between August 1, 2017 and March 14, 2018, Folkenflik and NPR published multiple online articles and republished those articles to new target audiences via Twitter – articles and tweets in which they made and repeated false and defamatory statements of and concerning Butowsky, including:
AUGUST 1, 2017
“Behind Fox News’ Baseless Seth Rich Story: The Untold Tale”
https://www.npr.org/2017/08/01/540783715/lawsuit-alleges-fox-news-and-trump-supporter-created-fake-news-story
● Fox News’ May 16, 2017 story, “Seth Rich, slain DNC staffer, had contact with WikiLeaks, say multiple sources”, was “baseless”; ● The Fox News story was a “fake news story” (emphasis in original); ● The Fox News story was a “deceptive story”;
● “Butowsky presented himself as a good Samaritan who came across a sliver of information about Seth Rich’s death and shared it with the Riches”;
● Wheeler did “not make great headway” in his investigation of the murder of Seth Rich.
● “The FBI informs Butowsky, Wheeler and Zimmerman that the agency is not assisting the Washington, D.C., police on the investigation – undercutting claims about an FBI report.”
● “Zimmerman’s online story … cites Wheeler, incorporating two key quotations from Wheeler that do not appear on video. In each, the private investigator seemingly takes ownership of the accusations”; ● “Despite his misgivings, Wheeler plays along” with the fake news promoted by Butowsky and Zimmerman.”

“7. Folkenflik and NPR acted with actual malice and reckless disregard for the truth. Hungry to publish a scandalous story about the President of the United States and Fox and to aid and abet Wigdor’s effort to extort money from Fox, Folkenflik failed to verify the information Wigdor secretly provided before releasing it on NPR.org, to NPR’s radio listeners via Morning Edition, and to millions upon millions via Twitter. In spite of serious doubts as to the veracity of his source, Folkenflik blindly accepted Wigdor’s false statements without ever once questioning Wigdor’s (and his client, Rod Wheeler’s), motive to lie. Folkenflik disregarded known sources of information that flatly contradicted the false narrative peddled by Wigdor. In promoting Wigdor’s story, Folkenflik misrepresented, distorted and oversimplified facts and issues. Folkenflik failed to gather, update and correct information throughout the life of his story, allowing the false narrative to build momentum and take on a life of its own. Folkenflik engaged in baseless stereotyping and allowed his (and Wigdor’s) extreme bias to shape his reporting. Folkenflik published and republished the story in such a way and to such audiences and extremes as to maximize the insult, pain, humiliation and embarrassment to Ed Butowsky in both his personal and professional capacities. Folkenflik pandered to lurid curiosity about the President and fake news about “Russian collusion”, rather than tell the truth.”

  1. “Joel [Rich] said that when I called the police department, right after that Donna Brazile called him and was asking him why I was snooping around asking questions about death of Seth and his working relationships at the DNC. I was startled to learn that Donna Brazile even knew that I reached out to the police department. So basically when I called the police department that information was automatically given to Donna Brazile and she caught [sic] Joel wanting to know why I was inquiring about Seth relationships at the DNC. As a police investigator that automatically makes me think that Donna Brazile is in a category of persons of interest as it relates to the death of Seth Rich. I also spoke with another source who informed me that not only was Donna Brazile snooping around wanting to know what I was learning with regards to the DNC and Seth Rich but also I was told that Debbie Wasserman Schultz was snooping around wanting to know how much it was I [sic] learning.”

    US v. Flynn heating up.
    Stay tuned.

  3. This is how the nyslimes updates a story.

  4. CW…….
    ………..you might consider wearing hip boots when engaging in research of any SLIMY LIBERAL. In addition you might also want to add football shoe spikes to the hip boots so you don’t inadvertently slip and fall while you wade through the STINKING LIBERAL SLIME. Be sure to wear an oxygen mask as well.

  5. CW………
    ………….I am heartened to see that there is now substantial gains being made in DOCUMENTED EVIDENCE which lends proof to the DEMOCRATIC agenda of continuous harassment of President Trump. Soon the payback can begin. Hopefully it will be permanent slammer vacations for ALL OF THE PERPETRATORS.
    ……….AND TODAY…………….Maxine Waters finally went completely BUGGY. She demanded President Trump be put in SOLITARY CONFINEMENT. HEY MAXINE WHAT IS GOOD FOR THE GOOSE IS ALSO GOOD FOR THE GANDER.

  6. citizenwells

    oldsailor, you’ve seen my outfit, eh?

  7. HAR HAR…….
    ……….HAD YOUR OUTFIT ALL ALONG………THE LIBERAL CRAP IS REALLY GETTING DEEP !!!

  8. AND WHEN……..
    ………THE LIBERAL SLIMES TRY TO GO TO TRIAL WITH THEIR IDIOTIC IMPEACHMENT BULLSH-T THE CHIEF JUSTICE OF THE SCOTUS WILL SIT AS JUDGE. THE CRAPOLA WILL COME TO AN ABRUPT HALT………AFTER WHICH A WHOLE LOT OF LIBERAL SLIMES WILL END UP IN PRISON JUMP SUITS AT LEAVENWORTH.

  9. AND IF………
    .THE SLIMES CANNOT MAKE THEIR CASE, THEY ARE IN DEEP SHI- THEMSELVES. EACH, AND EVERY POLITICIAN WHO PARTICIPATED SHALL BE SUED FOR A BILLION DOLLARS. TRUMP WOULD BE WITHIN HIS LEGAL RIGHTS. I READ THIS MORNING THAT THE CASH IS POURING IN TO THE TRUMP COFFERS. HOPEFULLY THE ACTION TO REMOVE SCHIFF WILL MOVE FORWARD QUICKLY. IT IS CLEAR THAT HE LIED DURING THE HEARING. HE IS IN VIDEO, AND CLEARLY LYING. HE DESERVES TO BE REMOVED, AND PROSECUTED.

  10. LYING……
    ……..BY A PROSECUTOR IS THE SAME THING AS TAMPERING WITH EVIDENCE, OR HIDING EXCULPATORY EVIDENCE. THE PERSON CAUGHT DOING THIS CAN HIMSELF/HERSELF BE PROSECUTED AND IMPRISONED. IT IS A FELONY.

  11. CW…..
    ………..GIVEN THE NOTORIETY OF FLYNN’S NEW CONSUL THERE IS MORE THAN AN EVEN CHANCE HE WILL BE EXXONERATED OF ALL WRONGDOING………..AFTER WHICH HE IS FREE TO SUE THE HELL OUT OF EVERYBODY WHO WAS SALIVATING WHILE HE WAS BEING CHARGED. I PRAY THAT HE TAKES EVERYONE OF THEM FOR EVERY DAMN PENNY THEY HAVE, OR MIGHT COME INTO THEIR POSSESSION IN THE FUTURE. HE LOST TOO MUCH TO SIMPLY WALK AWAY FROM IT ALL.

  12. CW…….
    ……….Sidney Powell might be working for Flynn (pro bono) with the idea in mind that she could make a ton of money handling the hundreds of civil lawsuits which would be filed if Flynn’s case is thrown out. I hope she stays with it. !!!!
