    Hannity touts conspiracy theory despite it falling apart




    Hannity touts DNC murder conspiracy theory hours after story completely falls apart



    Hours after NBC debunked Fox News’ much-hyped report that DNC staffer Seth Rich had been in communication with WikiLeaks at the time of his murder last July, Sean Hannity promoted the story to millions of Fox News viewers and suggested there’s evidence that prominent Democrats were involved in a murder conspiracy.

    There isn’t. Hours before Hannity’s show aired, NBC reported that “a current FBI official and a former one completely discount the Fox News claim that an FBI analysis of a computer belonging to Rich contained thousands of e-mails to and from WikiLeaks.

    ”Rich’s family also denounced Fox News’ reporting, saying earlier Tuesday through a spokesman that “we’ve seen through the past year of unsubstantiated claims, we see no facts, we have seen no evidence, we have been approached with no emails and only learned about this when contacted by the press.”



    A DNC staffer was gunned down last year and the right-wing media takes the opportunity to create yet another fake news story to control the news narrative. They're claiming that the DNC had Rich killed because he was leaking information to Wikileaks.

    Despite there being flimsy evidence and the family's insistence that the story is false, Hannity ran with it anyway.

    Credible or not, no one has ever disputed anything released by Wikileaks.

    If Wikileaks ran dirt on Trump you people would crown them king.

    Maybe it's you that has no credibility.

    Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies.

    The interesting thing about this is that a private investigator made the claim Rich had been intact with Wikileaks. The FBI will not release Rich's laptop so no one can be sure.

    Of course, it is possible to wipe most of the evidence from his laptop.

    What is NOT possible, however, is to wipe any emails he may have sent to Wikileaks, which is what the investigator claims to have verified.

    NBC's "debunking" is based on the FBI saying "that's not true," but the FBI has been known to lie. Often.

    Now that it looks as though Assange may be released, perhaps he'll be another casualty linked to the long list of folks that pissed off the Clintons and then died odd deaths.

    Run, Julian.

    Run.
