Rich retraction

"Family Of Murdered DNC Staffer Demands Fox News Retract Discredited Story".  "Family of slain DNC staffer demands retractions from Fox News, local TV station".  Note that Fox claims to have another source besides Wheeler:
"A FoxNews.com story on the case also cited a "federal source" who said the FBI had conducted a forensic analysis of Rich's computer and discovered thousands of emails with Wikileaks. But a law enforcement official told CNN that the FBI never had possession of Rich's laptop and did not conduct a forensic analysis of its contents."

The mainstream media, which had no interest whatsoever in the original story, is suddenly very interested in the PR moves of the family organized by a Democrat spinner:  "Brad Bauman: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know".

Wheeler doesn't seemed to have billed the mysterious benefactor.  "DNC Murder Conspiracy Apparently Originated With a Dallas Money Manager".  "Millionaire Reportedly Funding the Investigation into Seth Rich’s Murder is Frequent Fox News Guest".

"Family's private investigator: There is evidence Seth Rich had contact with WikiLeaks prior to death":
"EDITOR'S NOTE (5/17/17): We want to update you on a story you first saw on FOX 5 DC. We want to make an important clarification on claims that were made by Rod Wheeler, the private investigator hired by Seth Rich's family, whose services are being paid for by a third party.

What he told FOX 5 DC on camera Monday regarding Seth Rich's murder investigation is in clear contrast to what he has said over the last 48 hours. Rod Wheeler has since backtracked.

In an interview Monday, Wheeler told FOX 5 DC he had sources at the FBI confirming there was evidence of communication between Seth Rich and WikiLeaks. This is the verbatim of that exchange:

FOX 5 DC: “You have sources at the FBI saying that there is information...”

WHEELER: "For sure..."

FOX 5 DC: “...that could link Seth Rich to WikiLeaks?"

WHEELER: "Absolutely. Yeah. That's confirmed."

In the past 48 hours, Rod Wheeler has told other media outlets he did not get his information from FBI sources, contradicting what he told us on Monday.

Since Rod Wheeler backtracked Tuesday, FOX 5 DC attempted incessantly to communicate with him, but he didn't return calls or emails.

On Wednesday, just before our newscast, Wheeler responded to our requests via a telephone conversation, where he now backtracks his position and Wheeler characterizes his on-the-record and on-camera statements as "miscommunication."

When asked if Wheeler is still working for Seth Rich's family, Wheeler told FOX 5 DC the contract still stands-- ties have not been severed.

We reached out once again to the Rich family, and through a spokesperson the Rich family tells FOX 5 DC, "The family has relayed their deep disappointment with Rod Wheeler's conduct over the last 48 hours, and is exploring legal avenues to the family.""
Wheeler's story that somehow Fox put words in his mouth doesn't make any sense. The WikiLeaks-Rich claim is the gist of the story. If Wheeler didn't have that to convey, just what was he talking to Fox about?  I don't know if Wheeler's claim is true - though Assange as much as said that Rich was the leaker - but I am certain that somebody got to Wheeler.

"Murdered DNC Staffer Seth Rich Was In Contact With Wikileaks Says Former DC Homicide Detective".  Lost in the claims and counter-claims is that Wheeler is also alleging a law enforcement cover-up.  Also note another big IC conspiracy theory - that this was an American operation against a Clinton presidency, which would make Rich less of a whistle-blowing hero and more of an IC asset.

People will scoff about this, and the Cliontonistas appear to have succeeded in irreparably muddying the waters, but this incident is of vital importance in American history as the Rich leak appears to have been an effort to thwart the 'donor'-Clinton operation to start WWIII against Russia, an operation which is very much alive at this moment.
