NPR Seth Rich lies continue despite being sued for same, Oct 7, 2020 report on Twitter subpoena in Rich v Butowsky, Preemptive strike as truth emerges?
“Butowsky follows the lead, speaks five days after Trump’s inauguration with the legendary investigative reporter Seymour Hersh by phone. Butowsky says he doesn’t know who Hersh is and records the conversation, which he later shares with others. And the audio recording obtained by NPR shows Hersh referring to an insider source who describes an FBI report reflecting that Rich had leaked information to WikiLeaks.”...NPR
“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
” So why would a “street robbery” investigation need to be classified?”…Attorney Ty Clevenger July 22, 2020
NPR is on very thin ice.
The NPR report on the order to require Twitter to respond to the subpoena from Aaron Rich in Rich v Butowsky contains lies.
They are currently defendants in Folkenflik, NPR, et al due to allegations of lying about the Seth Rich case and reporting.
They did change the reporter to Bobby Allyn.
Why would NPR use some of the same lies as before when they are currently being sued?
Best guess: Due to recent revelations such as the Seymour Hersh deposition October 2, 2020 in Rich v Butowsky and continued Justice Dept. revelations, NPR may be getting desperate to cover their tracks and this may be a preemptive strike.
Or maybe they are clueless and believe the fake news.

“Judge Orders Twitter To Unmask FBI Impersonator Who Set Off Seth Rich Conspiracy
A federal judge in California has ordered that Twitter reveal the identity of an anonymous user who allegedly fabricated an FBI document to spread a conspiracy theory about the killing of Seth Rich, the Democratic National Committee staffer who died in 2016.
The ruling could lead to the identification of the person behind the Twitter name @whyspertech. Through that account, the user allegedly provided forged FBI materials to Fox News. The documents falsely linked Rich’s killing to the WikiLeaks hack of Democratic Party emails in the lead-up to the 2016 election.
While Twitter fought to keep the user’s identity secret, U.S. Magistrate Judge Donna Ryu in Oakland, Calif., ordered on Tuesday that the tech company must turn over the information to attorneys representing Rich’s family in a defamation suit by Oct. 20.
It is the latest twist in a years-long saga over a conspiracy theory that rocked Washington, caused a grieving family a great deal of pain and set off multiple legal battles.
In a now-retracted story, Fox News falsely claimed that Rich’s computer was connected to the leak of Democratic Party emails provided to WikiLeaks, and that Rich’s slaying was related to the purported leak. The theory was even debunked in special counsel Robert Mueller’s report.”
“Disclosure: NPR is involved in one of the legal battles tied to the Seth Rich controversy. Ed Butowsky has filed a defamation suit against NPR and NPR media correspondent David Folkenflik over the network’s coverage of the Fox News story on Rich that has since been retracted.”
I personally believe the focus on Twitter @whysprtech is a diversion and mostly irrelevant.
For simplicity sake, the following paragrah is featured:
“In a now-retracted story, Fox News falsely claimed that Rich’s computer was connected to the leak of Democratic Party emails provided to WikiLeaks, and that Rich’s slaying was related to the purported leak. The theory was even debunked in special counsel Robert Mueller’s report.”
In this one paragraph we have.
- Fox News falsely claimed that Rich’s computer was connected to the leak of Democratic Party emails provided to WikiLeaks. That has not been proven false and there is a mountain of evidence that it may be true.
- Rich’s slaying was related to the purported leak. That has not been proven or disproven.
- The theory was even debunked in special counsel Robert Mueller’s report.” Mueller’s report has been debunked, not the theory.
NPR looks desperate to me.
It is foolish to continue their fake news narrative in the midst of their being sued.
