From the NY Times.

“A federal judge in Manhattan dismissed a lawsuit Thursday that was brought against Fox News by the parents of Seth Rich, the young Democratic aide whose unsolved murder was turned into fodder for a lingering right-wing conspiracy theory.

In his dismissal of the lawsuit, Judge George B. Daniels said he sympathized with Mr. Rich’s parents, but added that they had not been personally defamed by the story — despite the fact that it included “false statements or misrepresentations.”

Mr. Rich’s parents, Joel and Mary, filed the suit in Federal District Court in Manhattan in March, arguing that Fox News had caused them emotional distress and engaged in “extreme and outrageous conduct” by publishing a fabricated article claiming that their son had leaked thousands of internal emails from the Democratic National Committee to WikiLeaks. Those emails were then released to the public in an act that proved damaging to Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign.

The story, published on the Fox News website on May 16, 2017, implied that Mr. Rich’s death on the streets on Washington in July 2016 had occurred in retaliation for the leaks, even though no evidence supported that conclusion. Mr. Rich’s parents held that Mr. Rich — then 27 — had been killed during an attempted robbery.

Within a week, Fox News retracted the story, saying that it had not met its standards, but the conspiracy theory has persisted, fueled by prominent conservatives like Newt Gingrich, the Fox News pundit Sean Hannity and the right-wing broadcasters Rush Limbaugh and Alex Jones of Infowars. The rumors about Mr. Rich’s death were embraced by some supporters of President Trump, who used them to undercut the notion that Russian operatives had been responsible for the leak.

“It is understandable that plaintiffs might feel that their grief and personal loss were taken advantage of, and that the tragic death of their son was exploited for political purposes,” Judge Daniels wrote. But he added that he had no choice but to dismiss the suit, because Fox’s conduct did not amount to the intentional infliction of emotional distress.

The judge also noted that Mr. Rich could not have been defamed by the story under New York law, because he was dead.”

“In a related decision, Judge Daniels also dismissed a separate lawsuitbrought against Fox News, Ms. Zimmerman and Mr. Butowsky by a private detective who had played a central role in the retracted story.

The detective, Rod Wheeler, was hired by the Rich family on Mr. Butowsky’s recommendation to help them investigate their son’s death. Mr. Wheeler — who was himself a Fox News contributor — was quoted in the story as saying there was “information” linking Mr. Rich to WikiLeaks. But he later accused Fox News and Ms. Zimmerman of misrepresenting what he had said, calling that action part of a coordinated effort with the White House to smear Mr. Rich and “shift the blame from Russia.””

Jack Burkman was interviewed recently on the Hagman Report regarding the alleged Seth Rich murder witness referred to as Luke Anon.

I have been on the internet a lot for years.

I have continued to follow the Seth Rich murder almost daily since it happened.

I have noticed a trend.

  1. The subjugation of probing investigations with honest questions and sincere motives.
  2. The intensity with which the left, DNC controlled media has attacked those asking questions, “Thought Criminals.”
  3. The difficulty in finding the latest news on the Seth Rich murder.

I have therefore tried to keep the story alive.

I listened to part of the interview of the alleged witness presented at the press conference.

I still need to review it and will. Any feedback from those who have listened to it would be appreciated.

The press conference July 11, 2018.

From the Gateway Pundit.

Witness Prepared to Identify Two Killers of Seth Rich

The Washington, D.C. lobbyist who has been on the hunt for Seth Rich’s killer found a “credible” witness who will identify the two men he believes murdered the DNC staffer.

Jack Burkman, a Washington-based attorney and lobbyist who has worked with a private investigative team to solve the Seth Rich murder mystery, told The Gateway Pundit that the witness has conclusive evidence that will bring Rich’s killers to justice within a month.

“We believe that we have reached the beginning of the end of the Seth Rich murder investigation,” Burkman toldThe Gateway Pundit in an exclusive interview Sunday.  “After two long hard years of work, we have a witness who is prepared to identify the two killers of Seth Rich. One is reportedly a current DEA (Drug Enforcement Administration) agent, the other is reportedly a current ATF (Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives) agent”

The witness, who “fears for his life,” will be accompanied by armed guards and disguise his identity as he details how two employees of the United States government killed Seth in a press conference slated for Tuesday.

Frank Whalen, a retired NYPD Detective Sergeant NYPD who served as the head of NYPD Homicide for 23 years, found the witness, Burkman explained.

“We found him through working with a retired New York City detective, who found him and brought him to us. We have thoroughly vetted this witness and we believe in this witness,” he said. “He has evidence that substantiates his claims but it will be revealed slowly. This witness is in great fear of his life – that’s why we are going with disguising him, disguising his voice and everything about him.”

Burkman, who has viewed surveillance footage from the night Rich was killed, says the witness’ testimony confirms two men involved in the shooting.

“What the witness says matches what the police say and matches what we know from the surveillance videos,” he said. “The police let me see the video. The police said the video clearly identifies the pant legs of two men. So, there were two men involved in the killing that night. I now believe that in the next 3 to 4 weeks the entire matter will be resolved. It’s the beginning of the end.””

“The witness informed Burkman that Doherty was well acquainted with the two government employees that killed Rich, but he was unaware Doherty worked as Burkman’s lead investigator and tried to kill him earlier in the year.

“The witness himself didn’t know that I had been shot by Kevin Doherty. Before we even told him that, he told us that Doherty was friends and palled around with the ATF agent and the DEA agent who shot Seth. That’s why we think the witness is credible,” he said. “There wasn’t much coverage of my shooting. The witness didn’t see the coverage and didn’t know. We didn’t tell him, he told us before we told him.””

“As soon as all the corrections which happened to be necessary in any particular number of the Times had been assembled and collated, that number would be reprinted, the original copy destroyed, and the corrected copy placed on the files in it’s stead. This process of continuation alteration was applied not only to newspapers, but to books, periodicals, pamphlets, posters, leaflets, films, sound tracks, cartoons, photographs–to every kind of literature or documentation which might conceivably hold any political or ideological significance. Day by day and almost minute by minute the past was brought up to date. In this way every prediction made by the Party could be shown by documentary evidence to be correct; nor was any item of news, or expression of opinion, which conflicted with the needs of the moment, ever allowed to be on record.”…George Orwell, “1984″

 

Yesterday was George Orwell’s (Eric Blair) birthday.

Winston’s job in “1984” was to rectify articles, scrub and rewrite.

So it apparently is with a Washington Times article written by James A. Lyons Jr., retired US Navy admiral, on March 1, 2018. about the Seth Rich murder. Pressure from the lawsuit?

The article has been oft quoted.

The link to the Washington Times article did not work nor did a search on their site.

I found the article on the Wayback Machine.

I assure you, in this case and all others, I want the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.

The Washington Times article is listed under commentary and is tagged as Analysis/Opinion. Perhaps there should have been more ? marks and “alleged” notations.

“More cover-up questions

The curious murder of Seth Rich poses questions that just won’t stay under the official rug”

“ANALYSIS/OPINION:

“With the clearly unethical and most likely criminal behavior of the upper management levels of the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) exposed by Chairman Devin Nunes of the House Intelligence Committee, there are two complementary areas that have been conveniently swept under the rug.

The first deals with the murder of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) staffer Seth Rich, and the second deals with the alleged hacking of the DNC server by Russia. Both should be of prime interest to special counsel Robert Mueller, but do not hold your breath.

The facts that we know of in the murder of the DNC staffer, Seth Rich, was that he was gunned down blocks from his home on July 10, 2016. Washington Metro police detectives claim that Mr. Rich was a robbery victim, which is strange since after being shot twice in the back, he was still wearing a $2,000 gold necklace and watch. He still had his wallet, key and phone. Clearly, he was not a victim of robbery.

This has all the earmarks of a targeted hit job. However, strangely no one has been charged with this horrific crime, and what is more intriguing is that no law enforcement agency is even investigating this murder. According to other open sources, Metro police were told by their “higher ups” that if they spoke about the case, they will be immediately terminated. It has been claimed that this order came down from very high up the “food chain,” well beyond the D.C. mayor’s office. Interesting.”

“With regard to the alleged Russian hacking of the DNC server, Mr. Assange also offered information to the Trump administration to prove Russia didn’t hack the DNC server, as the DNC claimed. Mr. Assange also met with Orange Country Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, California Republican, and gave him information to present to the Trump administration to prove no one hacked the DNC server.

However, with the Obama holdovers in key positions, it is not surprising that no one from the Trump administration would meet with the congressman or Mr. Assange. New Zealand tech expert Kim DotCom said he has proof that both he and Seth Rich were involved in passing the emails to Wikileaks, but he has been ignored as well.

The FBI opened an investigation into the theft of the DNC emails in July 2016. However, the FBI has not inspected the DNC server because the DNC won’t give permission. Is the FBI an extension of the DNC? That’s why we have subpoenas. Instead, the FBI relied on an assessment by a cyber security firm, Crowd Strike, hired by the Hillary Clinton campaign and DNC’s law firm Perkins Coie as proof that Russia was the hacker. Incompetence is an understatement. Corruption at the highest levels of the DOJ/FBI is clear.

The Trump administration must take charge and get a competent attorney general to pursue these crimes.

“The Profiling Investigative Center releases Seth Rich murder reenactment

Organization led by Jack Burkman hopes to generate leads in controversial unsolved case
‘Hollywood quality’ reenactment meant to revitalize public interest and bring forward new evidence

The Profiling Investigate Center, formerly The Profiling Project, the independent investigation into the murder of Seth Rich, led by Jack Burkman, has released a crime reenactment video of that fateful night.

The team hopes that seeing one possible scenario of the crime will generate leads and tips to bring forth new information or evidence.

The reenactment is based on a combination of popular theories and hard facts, researched and verified by the team’s investigators.

“This case has remained unsolved for almost two years,” says Burkman, a D.C.-based lobbyist, lawyer and representative for the team. “The more time passes, the harder it is to find answers. We hope that by staging one of the many stories we’re examining we’ll dust off some memories or unearth new evidence as well. It’s definitely Hollywood quality.”

Seth Rich was murdered in his home neighborhood of Bloomingdale, a section of Washington, D.C. Around four in the morning, after Rich was seen in a local pub, police responded to reports of gunfire. After being transported to the hospital, Rich died because of two gunshot wounds to the back.

The crime scene left many investigators confused. No personal belongings had been taken and no eyewitnesses to verify the events. As news of the murder spread it gained traction in national media. From a botched robbery to assassination by Russian hitmen for leaking emails in his role as a DNC staffer, theories flowed relentlessly in the months that followed.

On March 23, 2017, Burkman announced his efforts along with a $130,000 reward, recently upped to $155,000, for information leading to the arrest of Rich’s killer. After an extensive lead investigation, the team published an 80-page report which concluded there was a distinct possibility Rich may have been targeted.

“At the end of the day, Seth was a son, a friend and so much more to those who knew him,” said Burkman. “When someone like that is taken too soon, we cannot allow their killer to remain on the loose.””

“Jack Burkman announces record setting reward in Seth Rich case, renews efforts for investigative team

With new $155,000 reward, The Profiling Investigative Center, formerly The Profiling Project, analyzes work and motives of former colleague and welcomes new team member

At an Arlington press conference on Tuesday, D.C. lobbyist and attorney Jack Burkman increased the reward to $155,000 for information leading to the arrest of Seth Rich’s killer and announced new details surrounding his criminal investigation team.

It is now the highest reward offered for information on any crime in D.C., Virginia and Maryland history.

The Profiling Investigative Center, formerly The Profiling Project, has redoubled efforts on the controversial Seth Rich case after former investigator, Kevin Doherty, attacked Burkman in March. In light of the latest push, the organization has also welcomed seasoned criminal investigator Dan Rice to the team.

“We’re on a quest to find answers,” said Burkman. “Despite the adversity, we must renew and double down on our work. We have to find the truth in regards to Seth and now, we have to find out what was behind Mr. Doherty’s actions.”

While following up on a lead for an FBI whistleblower in March, Burkman was shot twice and run down by an SUV at an Arlington hotel. Eye witness reports led police to arrest The Profiling Project’s former investigator, Kevin Doherty, in connection with the attack.

As details of the plot emerged from police, both Burkman and the investigators found themselves troubled by the attack, whether he worked alone, and how his motives could have impacted his work with the Seth Rich case.

“This isn’t a Sherlock Holmes mystery, it’s the tragic, unsolved murder of a young man,” said Burkman. “Before we proceed, we must ensure our work was never corrupted or influenced and that no one else is out there to scuttle this investigation.”

With the help of Rice, the team plans to assess the validity of Doherty’s conclusions and whether he sought to influence the Seth Rich case or had assistance in the attack.”

“Lobbyist says he was nearly killed by man he hired to investigate Seth Rich’s death”

“when Burkman bent over to pull the papers out from under the cone, he was shot in the buttocks and thigh. As he ran out of the garage with his dachshund in his arms, he was hit by an SUV.

He said the car backed up to hit him again.

“It looked like he was coming to kill me,” Burkman said. But he said a woman watching from a window of the hotel screamed. A guard came running and the SUV sped off, Burkman said.”

“Burkman said he is now traveling with security. But the experience has not soured him on conspiracy theories. His profiling project concluded that Rich was shot by a hired killer, and he wonders if Doherty was working for someone else.

He has not given up on investigating Rich’s death, whose family just sued Fox News for publishing a false story linking their son to WikiLeaks.

“This in my mind makes the whole Seth story stranger and stranger,” Burkman said.””
