Assange testimony requested in Rich v Butowsky et al August 24, 2020, Seth Rich Wikileaks source of DNC files?, Requests international judicial assistance
“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
“I repeatedly asked U.S. Attorney John Durham and DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz to investigate whether Mr. Hardy lied under oath, and in an April 22, 2020 letter Mr. Horowitz wrote that he referred my complaint to the FBI’s Inspection Division. Was Mr. Hardy forced out?”…Attorney Ty Clevenger July 22, 2020
“Re: Seth Rich, keep an eye on the National Security Division of the Justice Department. As you can see from the federal complaint, the NSD ignored a FOIA request that I filed back in 2018 for records about Seth Rich. And look at Paragraph 16, plus Exhibit 8. I think NSD is playing a bigger role in the “Russian hacking” narrative than most of us understood. By sending Seth Rich records there, it’s easier to keep things classified. So why would a “street robbery” investigation need to be classified?”…Attorney Ty Clevenger July 22, 2020
From Aaron Rich v Edward Butowsky, et al August 24, 2020.
REQUEST FOR INTERNATIONAL JUDICIAL ASSISTANCE
LETTER OF REQUEST PURSUANT TO THE HAGUE CONVENTION OF 18 MARCH
1970 ON THE TAKING OF EVIDENCE ABROAD IN CIVIL OR COMMERCIAL
MATTERS (THE “HAGUE CONVENTION”)
“The United States District Court for the District of Columbia presents its compliments to the appropriate judicial authority of the United Kingdom (“UK”), and requests international judicial assistance to obtain evidence to be used in a civil proceeding before this Court in the above-captioned matter. Upon hearing the Plaintiff’s Motion for Issuance of a Letter of Requestter “Governski Decl.”), this Court has determined that it would further the interests of justice if by the proper and usual process of your Court, you summon Julian Assange to appear before a person empowered under English law to administer oaths and take testimony forthwith, to give testimony under oath or affirmation by
questions and answers upon oral examination in respect of the matters and issues identified below, and permit the parties to create a written transcript and video recording of such testimony.
The applicant for thisletter is Aaron Rich. UK counsel is available to answer any questions the Court may have.”
“The testimony is intended for use at trial, and in the view of this Court, will be relevant to claims and defenses in the case, including Plaintiff Aaron Rich’s allegations of defamation.”
“Defendants have seized upon statements that WikiLeaks’ founder, Julian Assange, made on a Dutch television program approximately one month after Seth Rich’s murder. In that interview, Mr. Assange made comments that Defendants have interpreted as an insinuation (or more) that Seth Rich may have been a WikiLeaks source. Although WikiLeaks subsequently
released a statement on Twitter that its policy of neither confirming nor denying “whether any person has ever been a source for WikiLeaks” should “not be taken to imply that Seth Rich was a source to WikiLeaks or to imply that his murder is connected to our publications,” WikiLeaks nonetheless continued to publish tweets about Seth Rich that provided fodder for Defendants’
conspiracy theories. Special Counsel Robert Mueller concluded that Assange’s and WikiLeaks’ “statements about Rich implied falsely that he had been the source of the stolen DNC emails,” noting that “information uncovered during the investigation discredit WikiLeaks’ claims about the source of material that it posted.””
