Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, July 15, 2019

Businessman Ed Butowsky filed a lawsuit on Monday that outed FOX News reporter Ellen Ratner was his source for the Seth Rich information. This comes after Michael Isikoff's report last week that labeled Butowsky as a Russian source. Ed told The Gateway Pundit today that Ellen Ratner lied to Isikoff. Ed provided The Gateway Pundit with a copy of his email with Ratner. Butowsky added that he spoke with Isikoff off the record and he broke his trust by contacting Ratner.

So, take this one with a grain of salt. I stumbled upon this story somehow, then did a couple of google searches - nothing.

Then for the heck of it, I searched 'Seth Rich' on Duck Duck Go. duckduckgo.com

Boom. There's a slew of new reports within the last week attempting to debunk the Rich Seth DNC Insider Leak story and blame Russian hacking. Why the sudden interest and stories on Seth Rich? Was intelligence attempting to get ahead of this lawsuit entered today?

Interesting to say the least.

43. Shortly after the murder, the interim DNC chair at the time, Donna Brazile,
reached out to Mr. McCabe and Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser for help in
dealing with the political consequences of the murder. Ms. Brazile knew suspicions
would soon arise, fairly or unfairly, that the murder was connected to the email leaks.
D.C. police allowed the FBI to unlock Seth Rich's electronic devices, and the FBI
obtained data showing that Mr. Rich had indeed provided the DNC emails to Wikileaks.
At Mr. McCabe's direction, however, that information was kept secret with orders that it
not be produced in response to any Freedom of Information Act request. For her part,
Ms. Bowser directed D.C. police not to pursue any investigative avenues that might
connect the murder to the email leaks. At her direction, local police blamed the murder
on a "botched robbery" even though Mr. Rich's watch, wallet, and other belongings were

not removed from his body.
44. On July 22, 2016, Wikileaks began publishing thousands of email that had
been downloaded from the DNC's servers by Seth Rich and his brother, Aaron. Those
emails showed how the campaign of Democratic Presidential nominee Hillary Clinton
had corruptly taken control of the DNC for the purpose of sabotaging her primary
opponent, Bernie Sanders. Per their game plan, the Clinton campaign and the DNC
immediately claimed that the emails had been obtained by hackers working for the
Russian government.
45. Mr. Butowsky stumbled into the RCH crosshairs after Ellen Rattner, a news
analyst for Fox News and the White House correspondent for Talk Media News,
contacted him in the Fall of 2016 about a meeting she had with Mr. Assange. Ms.
Rattner's brother, the late Michael Rattner, was an attorney who had represented Mr.
Assange. According to Ms. Rattner, she made a stop in London during a return flight
from Berlin, and she met with Mr. Assange for approximately six hours in the
Ecuadorean embassy. Ms. Rattner said Mr. Assange told her that Seth Rich and his
brother, Aaron, were responsible for releasing the DNC emails to Wikileaks. Ms. Rattner
said Mr. Assange wanted the information relayed to Seth's parents, as it might explain the
motive for Seth's murder.

The guy could be a nutter, or he could be the loose thread in the entire Collusion Hoax.

The only reason this got my attention was all the articles published just recently about a 2 1/2 year old murder.

"Sheeple pushing conspiracy theories.
Shocking."

When your job is defending a racist traitor conspiracy theories are your go to sources of information. Does defending a traitor make you a traitor too? Me thinks yes.

I suspect it was murder. That fits everything. It's hard to call it coincidence after all that happened.
