FBI caught in Seth Rich records lie, Ty Clevenger October 11, 2019 court filing, FBI records subpoenaed again, US Attorney Deborah Sines: “the FBI was looking into that”
“The FBI clearly has records pertaining to Seth Rich, and it has withheld those
records in bad faith.”…Attorney Ty Clevenger October 11, 2019
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

(EDNY) to Ty Clevenger pertaining to Ty Clevenger v. U.S. Department of
Justice, et al., Case No. 18-CV-01568 (EDNY), Ms. Mahoney wrote that she had
conferred with the FBI (her client) regarding whether it assisted the Seth Rich
I subsequently ascertained from the FBI that as part of the search that it
conducted in response to your FOIA request, the Washington, D.C. Field
Office was contacted. They responded that they did not open a case or
assist in the investigation and have no records.
In an August 22, 2018 letter from Assistant U.S. Attorney Kathleen Mahoney
(EDNY) to Magistrate Judge Lois Bloom in the same case, Ms. Mahoney wrote as
Plaintiff then inquired by email on August 16, whether the FBI had
searched for records with the Computer Analysis and Response Team
(“CART”). On August 20, the undersigned responded by email that the FBI
had advised that it did not reach out to CART because the FBI had not
assisted in the investigation (the D.C. police declined the FBI’s assistance)
but that the searches that the FBI did conduct would have located any
Produce all records, documents, data, or communications (e.g., text messages or

“1. The FBI clearly has records pertaining to Seth Rich, and it has withheld those records in bad faith.”
“In August of 2019, Michael Isikoff of Yahoo!News published the fifth episode of
“Conspiracyland,” a podcast series about the murder of Seth Rich, and in that episode he interviewed former Asst. U.S. Attorney Deborah Sines. The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia had assigned Ms. Hines to investigate the murder of Mr. Rich, and a full copy of the interview can be found at https://tunein.com/podcasts/News–
Politics-Podcasts/Conspiracyland-p1231856/?topicId=132591823. In Episode 5, Mr. Isikoff discussed a Fox News report that the FBI had copies of communications between Seth Rich and Wikileaks:
Isikoff: “As soon as she heard the [Fox News] story, Sines reached out to the FBI.”
Sines: “Of course I did. Of course I did.”
Isikoff: “And what did they tell you?”
Sines: “No. No connection between Seth and Wikileaks. And there was no
evidence on his work computer of him downloading and disseminating things
from the DNC.”
Isikoff: “As it turned out, there was one sliver of truth in the Fox story. The FBI
had been examining Seth’s computer, not for any ties to the DNC emails or
Wikileaks, but because they saw unusual activity by a foreign hacker after his
Sines: “There were allegations that someone, maybe more than one person, was
trying to invade Seth’s Gmail account and set up a separate account after Seth was murdered, and the FBI was looking into that. I presumed they were trying to
create a fake Gmail account or get into Seth’s Gmail account so they could dump
false information in there.”
Isikoff: “So just to be clear, the FBI had only investigated an attempt to hack into
Seth Rich’s email when they saw activity after he died. When we contacted the
Bureau’s Washington Field Office, a spokesperson said it had never opened an
investigation into the DNC staffer’s death, pointing out that the FBI had no
jurisdiction over local crimes. Andrew McCabe, the Bureau’s acting director at
the time, told us something else. He had personally reached out to his agents
when he heard the Seth Rich conspiracy stories and was informed there was
nothing to them. There was no ‘there’ there, McCabe said he was told.” (emphasis added).

In other words, Mr. Hardy’s claim that the FBI had no records about Seth Rich was false. And the fact that the FBI refused to search in CART, the place where responsive records most likely would be found, is strong evidence of bad faith.”
