Seth Rich conclusive proof of Wikileaks contact imminent, Attorney Ty Clevenger letter to ODNI Director Richard Grenell, Clevenger v USDOJ
“The FBI clearly has records pertaining to Seth Rich, and it has withheld those
records in bad faith.”…Attorney Ty Clevenger October 11, 2019
“Ms. Sines’s testimony flatly contradicts the FBI’s claims that (1) it did not investigate matters pertaining to Mr. Rich; (2) it did not examine his computer; and (3) it conducted a “reasonable” search but could not locate any records or communications about Mr. Rich. Specifically, Ms. Sines’s testimony flatly contradicts the affidavit testimony of FBI Section Chief David M. Hardy.”…Attorney Ty Clevenger March 29, 2020
“Where is Ellen Ratner, key witness in the Seth Rich Wikileaks controversy?”...Citizen Wells
From the Attorney Ty Clevenger letter to ODNI Director Richard Grenell dated May 7, 2020.
“I represent Ed Butowsky in the cases identified above, each of which
concerns an overlapping question of fact, namely whether former Democratic
National Committee employee Seth Rich played a role in leaking emails from the
DNC to Wikileaks in 2016. I respectfully request your assistance in de-classifying
National Security Agency records that would settle this question once and for all.
As you are probably aware, Mr. Rich was murdered in Washington, D.C.
shortly after the emails were released, and Julian Assange strongly inferred that
Mr. Rich – rather than Russian hackers – was responsible for sending the emails to Wikileaks. Conversely, Special Counsel Robert Mueller, the FBI, and the
intelligence establishment all have insisted that Mr. Rich played no role in
transferring the emails.
I am reliably informed that the NSA or its partners intercepted at least some
of the communications between Mr. Rich and Wikileaks. Before elaborating on
that, however, I should first note the extent to which the “deep state” has already
tried to cover up information about Mr. Rich. In an October 9, 2018 affidavit
submitted in a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit, FBI section chief David M.
Hardy testified that (1) the FBI did not investigate any matters pertaining to Mr.
Rich, and (2) the FBI was unable to locate any records about Mr. Rich. Both
claims were unequivocally false.”
“On March 20, 2020, I deposed former Asst. U.S. Attorney Deborah Sines,
the prosecutor assigned to the Seth Rich murder case. She testified that (1) the FBI investigated a possible intrusion into Mr. Rich’s electronic accounts; (2) the FBI examined Mr. Rich’s computer; and (3) the FBI did have records pertaining to Mr. Rich. Ms. Sines further testified that she met with a prosecutor and an FBI agent from Mr. Mueller’s team (ergo there should be an FD-302 form from that
interview). Again, this flatly contradicts the FBI’s official narrative that (1) Mr.
Rich was never the subject.”
Now, back to the NSA. Former NSA officials Bill Binney, Ed Loomis, and
Kirk Wiebe are prepared to testify that the DNC emails published by Wikileaks
could not have been obtained via hacking. Markings on the published emails –
including the speeds at which the email files were transmitted – exclude the
possibility of hacking. Instead, someone must have downloaded the files onto a
thumb drive or something similar. Furthermore, the NSA or its Five Eyes partners in London would have intercepted any communications between Mr. Rich and Wikileaks.
I have enclosed an October 4, 2018 letter wherein the NSA refused to
produce 32 pages of records about Seth Rich insofar as those records were
classified. I have also enclosed a November 22, 2019 letter wherein the NSA
declined to produce records in response to a subpoena duces tecum. One of my
consulting experts, Larry C. Johnson, was informed that the NSA possesses
additional communications between Mr. Rich and Wikileaks. Mr. Johnson is
retired from the CIA, and he has spoken with an intelligence official who said
there were additional communications.
Section 1.7 of Executive Order 13526 prohibits the use of classification for
purposes of concealing wrongdoing, and I believe the NSA is trying to conceal
wrongdoing that occurred during the Obama Administration. I respectfully request that you de-classify the NSA’s records about Seth Rich, further directing the NSA to release the records. Releasing the records would certainly help my client, but it would do a lot more than that. Disclosure would go a long way toward exposing the depravity of the “deep state,” and that is long overdue.”
From Clevenger v US Department of Justice filed May 1, 2020 by Attorney Ty Clevenger.
“In his March 29, 2020 Notice (Doc. No. 57), the Plaintiff informed the Court about the March 20, 2020 deposition of former Asst. U.S. Attorney Deborah Sines, and he further told the Court that he would provide a copy of Ms. Sines’s testimony after it became available. The Order was released on April 3, 2020, before the Plaintiff filed the transcript, but he has attached as Exhibit 1 to this motion a true and correct transcript of Ms. Sines’s testimony (hereinafter
“Transcript”).1 The Plaintiff respectfully moves the Court to reconsider the Order, particularly pages 15-19, in light of Ms. Sines’s testimony. Even without her testimony, however, the Plaintiff can establish that the government was not entitled to summary judgment.”
An order was filed yesterday May 13, 2020.
