Seth Rich update part 2, Huddleston v FBI filed Dec 30, 2020 by Attorney Ty Clevenger, “acted in the utmost bad faith” 3 years, Who or what is FBI protecting?
“And why is Fox News working so hard to kill this story? I wish I could say more “about Fox’s behind-the-scenes treachery — and someday hopefully I will — but rest assured that Malia Zimmerman’s May 17, 2017 story about Mr. Rich was fully vetted by senior Fox management. I repeatedly encouraged Fox’s attorneys to postpone settlement discussions with Seth Rich’s parents until I obtained the FBI records (my client, Ed Butowsky, was a co-defendant with Fox), but Fox was hellbent on settling the case in October / November. That’s around the time Rupert Murdoch publicly joined forces with Joe Biden. Fox had a very strong defense, yet it rolled over and played dead, settling the lawsuit and then firing Ms. Zimmerman. Sooner or later, the full story will come out, and it will be very ugly for Fox News and the Murdoch family.”...Attorney Ty Clevenger
“They found, what he had done, he [Seth Rich] had submitted a series of documents, emails from DNC — and, by the way, all this shit about the DNC, you know, was it a ‘hack’ or wasn’t it a ‘hack’ — whatever happened, it was the Democrats themselves wrote this shit, you know what I mean? All I know is that, he offered a sample, he sends a sample, you know, I am sure dozens of emails, and said ‘I want money’. Later Wikileaks did get the password [SETH RICH DID SELL WIKILEAKS ACCESS INTO HIS COMPUTER.] He had a drop-box, a [password-]protected drop-box, which isn’t hard to do.”…Seymour Hersh
” So why would a “street robbery” investigation need to be classified?”…Attorney Ty Clevenger July 22, 2020
Yesterday we presented “show stopper” evidence from Attorney Ty Clevenger.
“The National Security Agency is hiding records about murdered Democratic National Committee employee Seth Rich, according to one of my sources, who informed me yesterday that the records are classified as a special access program (the highest level of classification) because they include intercepted communications between Mr. Rich and Wikileaks founder Julian Assange.”
Something else very important happened yesterday.

Brian Huddleston v FBI
PLAINTIFF’S RESPONSE IN OPPOSITION TO MOTION TO STAY
“Under normal circumstances, the Plaintiff would not oppose an extension of time to respond to document requests. These are not, however, normal circumstances. As set forth below, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (“FBI”) has acted in the utmost bad faith over a period of three years, going so far as perpetrate frauds on two federal courts. The Plaintiff therefore urges the Court to grant the Defendants significantly less time than they requested, and he further moves the Court to order the Defendants to explain the reasons for their delay.”
“The timing of Mr. Rich’s murder, and the fact that he worked for the DNC,
quickly led to suspicions that his murder might be connected to the transfer of thousands of DNC emails to Wikileaks. Id. The publication of those emails upended the Presidential campaign of Hillary Clinton, id., and Wikileaks founder Julian Assange strongly inferred that the emails were obtained from Mr. Rich. See “Julian Assange on Seth Rich,” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kp7FkLBRpKg. Mr. Assange’s claim contradicted the narrative promoted by the FBI and the U.S. intelligence community, i.e., that “Russian hackers” were responsible for obtaining and transferring the DNC emails to Wikileaks, and Mr. Assange’s claim is controversial even now.”
When Mr. Huddleston submitted his FOIA request on April 9, 2020, he did not
give the FBI the option of playing dumb. As the Court can see from Mr. Huddleston’s letter (Doc. No. 3, internal exhibit 1), he expressly referenced the laptop as well as the correspondence about Mr. Rich that the FBI had accidentally released from the Washington Field Office. Now, after more than three years of delay and deception, the FBI has finally admitted that it has thousands of records pertaining to Mr. Rich, not to mention his laptop, yet it asks this Court to delay matters even further. The Defendants
purport to ask this Court for a three-month stay, but in reality they are asking this court for an indefinite delay. According to the Court’s October 23, 2010 Scheduling Order (Doc. No. 9), the Defendants’ production was due two days ago, yet the Defendants ask the Court to wait three months before even deciding when document production should begin.
Given the FBI’s long history of deception and bad faith, the Court should not
countenance vague and open-ended requests for additional time. If there is an FBI report about communications between Seth Rich and Wikileaks, then the FBI should be able to locate that report immediately. The FBI should be ordered to produce any such report within seven days of the Court’s order, which should give the agency enough time to make redactions (the parties can fight over the redactions later). Furthermore, the FBI should begin a rolling production of responsive materials not later than January 29, 2021, to be completed not later than March 31, 2021. The Plaintiff primarily is interested in records indicating whether Seth Rich played a role in leaking DNC emails to Wikileaks.
Accordingly, the FBI should be directed to focus its initial efforts on such records. Finally, the FBI official responsible for this matter should be directed to explain under oath why the search has taken so long and why the agency needs additional time. ”
Who or what is the FBI protecting?
And where was Attorney General Barr?
