Seth Rich update Oct 3, 2020, Seymour Hersh Deposition re source and “FBI examining Seth Rich’s computer”, Aaron Rich v Butowsky et al

“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

 

From Aaron Rich v Butowsky, et al October 2, 2020.

Motion to Compel Disclosure.

“Sy Hersh (“Mr. Hersh”) is a well-known journalist central to the dispute between Aaron Rich (“Plaintiff” or “Aaron”) and Defendants. Mr. Hersh was recorded by Defendant Edward Butowsky (“Butowsky”) in 2017 stating that Mr. Hersh had a source who had told him that according to an FBI report, Seth Rich transmitted emails to Wikileaks, requested payment, and made copies of the material transmitted as a form of protection. Quainton Decl, Ex. B, Extracts
from the Deposition of Seymour Hersh, dated July 15, 2020 (the “Hersh Deposition Extracts”) at 198:18-25-199:1-7; 109:13-25-110:1-14.”

“For the reasons set forth above, Mr. Hersh must be ordered to do exactly what Defendant was ordered to do: disclose the identity of his source to counsel for Defendants so that Defendants can properly evaluate how best to prepare their defense. The Court can enter any further orders necessary to prevent the source’s identity from being made public.”

From Seymour Hersh recording in August 2017.

“I’ll tell you what I know. What I know comes off an FBI report. Don’t ask me how. You can figure out I’ve been around long enough. This isaccording to the FBI report. What they find is he [Rich] makes con[tact]. First of all, you have to know, you have to know some basic facts. One of the basic facts, is there’s no DNC or Podesta email that exists beyond May 22nd, May 21st, 22nd, the last emails from either one of those groups. And so what the report says is that sometime in late spring—we’re talking about June, you know, summer and June 21st, late spring would be after, I presume . . . I don’t know. I just say late spring, early summer, he [Rich] makes contact with Wikileaks. That’s in his computer and he makes contact. They [FBI investigators] found what he had done. He had submitted a series of documents, of emails, some juicy emails from the DNC. He offered a sample, an extensive sample—y’know I’m sure dozens of email—and said, “I want money.”

Later Wikileaks did get the password. He had a Dropbox, a protected Dropbox, which isn’t hardto do. I mean you don’t have to be a wizard, IT wizard. Y’know he was certainly not a dumb kid, and they got access to the Dropbox. He [Rich] also, and this is also in the FBI report, he’d also let people know with whom he was dealing, and I don’t know how he dealt—I’ll tell you about Wikileaks in a second. I don’t know how he dealt with Wikileaks—the mechanism. But he also, the word was passed, according to the FBI report, “I also shared this box with a couple of friends, so if anything happens to me, you’re not, it’s not going to solve your [their?] problem.” OK? I don’t know what that means, I don’t know what he was … anyway, but Wikileaks got access and before he was killed.”

From Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity (VIPS) March 13, 2019.

“Recent forensic examination of the Wikileaks DNC files shows they were created on 23, 25 and 26 May 2016. (On June 12, Julian Assange announced he had them; WikiLeaks published them on July 22.) We recently discovered that the files reveal a FAT (File Allocation Table) system property. This shows that the data had been transferred to an external storage device, such as a thumb drive, before WikiLeaks posted them.

FAT is a simple file system named for its method of organization, the File Allocation Table. It is used for storage only and is not related to internet transfers like hacking. Were WikiLeaks to have received the DNC files via a hack, the last modified times on the files would be a random mixture of odd-and even-ending numbers.

Why is that important? The evidence lies in the “last modified” time stamps on the Wikileaks files. When a file is stored under the FAT file system the software rounds the time to the nearest even-numbered second. Every single one of the time stamps in the DNC files on WikiLeaks’ site ends in an even number.

We have examined 500 DNC email files stored on the Wikileaks site. All 500 files end in an even number—2, 4, 6, 8 or 0. If those files had been hacked over the Internet, there would be an equal probability of the time stamp ending in an odd number. The random probability that FAT was not used is 1 chance in 2 to the 500th power. Thus, these data show that the DNC emails posted by WikiLeaks went through a storage device, like a thumb drive, and were physically moved before Wikileaks posted the emails on the World Wide Web.

This finding alone is enough to raise reasonable doubts, for example, about Mueller’s indictment of 12 Russian intelligence officers for hacking the DNC emails given to WikiLeaks. A defense attorney could easily use the forensics to argue that someone copied the DNC files to a storage device like a USB thumb drive and got them physically to WikiLeaks — not electronically via a hack.”

From Gateway Pundit July 9, 2018.

““We believe that we have reached the beginning of the end of the Seth Rich murder investigation,” Burkman told The 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.”

Deborah Sines former Assistant United Stated Attorney served subpoena by Attorney Eden Quainton, Aaron Rich v Butowsky et al, Expert witness Larry Johnson

“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

“Plaintiff’s attempt to deflect attention from his attorneys’ massive commitment of resources points to one of the central puzzles in this litigation: why are so many lawyers and their allies in the media and political establishment so committed to stamping out and branding as “lies,” “fake news,” “disinformation,” “contrived narratives,” “concocted stories” any suggesting that Seth or Aaron Rich were involved in transmitting DNC emails to Wikileaks?”…Aaron Rich v Butowsky, et al May 18, 2020

Leon, dated April 23, 2020, Dkt. 182, is hereby updated to state that former Assistant United Stated Attorney Deborah Sines has been served with a subpoena for a deposition to be held on June 22, 2020.”

EXPERT WITNESS LARRY JOHNSON’S
REPLY TO OPPOSITION TO CROSS-MOTION FOR PROTECTIVE ORDER AND SANCTIONS

“In the introduction Plaintiff insists on casting himself as David to Defendant’s Goliath. This continues to be absurd. Defendant is represented in this litigation by a solo practitioner with a single (and otherwise occupied) associate. Plaintiff, on the other hand, is backed by two of the most profitable law firms in American history, with the combined firepower of two sets of partners, associates, paralegals, secretaries, word processors and tech support staff. Defendant is
truly armed with a slingshot and Plaintiff has not one but an army of javelin throwers.1

That Mr. Butowsky is also being harassed in a separate lawsuit claiming, in a wildly implausible flight of fancy, that he conspired with President Trump to intentionally target a grieving family is of course completely irrelevant. Plaintiff’s attempt to deflect attention from his attorneys’ massive commitment of resources points to one of the central puzzles in this litigation: why are so many lawyers and their allies in the media and political establishment so committed to stamping out and branding as “lies,” “fake news,” “disinformation,” “contrived
narratives,” “concocted stories” any suggesting that Seth or Aaron Rich were involved in transmitting DNC emails to Wikileaks?

The question readily answers itself: the professional, media and political elite are heavily invested in the now debunked Trump-Russia conspiracy theory and are desperate to “squash” – in the words of one of the early FBI investigators responding to alternative theories to their pet Guccifer 2.0 claim – any honest investigation of the origins of the conspiracy theory, including
the evidence-free “assessment” that Russia military intelligence hacked the DNC servers as part of a plot to support Donald Trump.”

From Citizen Wells May 14, 2020.

From the Attorney Ty Clevenger letter to ODNI Director Richard Grenell dated May 7, 2020.

“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.””
