Why Is The FBI Hiding Seth Rich's Two Laptops?
One lawyer thinks the official story about the 2016 DNC email leak is about to explode
Officially, the DNC staffer Seth Rich was murdered in a bungled burglary on July 10th, 2016. The problem with this story is that the FBI has been forced to admit recently that it has not only a copy of Seth Rich’s home laptop, but also his work laptop. Attorney Ty Clevenger has been responsible for discovering these facts — using FOIA requests.
Why would the FBI have Seth Rich’s two computers — unless Seth Rich was involved in the DNC email leak?
The latest update on this bombshell story arrived on December 9th, when the FBI provided a new 8-page memo to Ty Clevenger. The FBI admits to having both Seth Rich’s personal laptop and his work laptop. It also claims that the work laptop should not be subject to any FOIA requests because the FBI “collected it from a non-government third party.” The FBI also admits that “an outside entity” made “an image of the work laptop.” The agency does not want to turn over any records regarding the work laptop, of course.
Here’s the memo.
Ty Clevenger made the following statement on Twitter on December 10th about the contents of the FBI’s 8-page memo.
Here are the Seth Rich records filed by the FBI on Friday night. The FBI has acknowledged it had Seth's personal and work laptops. The FBI wrote a report about Seth's work laptop but now refuses to disclose the report because Russian collusion! Yes, releasing a report about SETH RICH's work laptop would somehow jeopardize the non-existent prosecutions of the Russian intelligence agents indicted by Robert Mueller. I've attached the declaration of Michael Seidel, the FBI official in charge of hiding public information from the public. He tries to explain why none of the records previously showed up in the five years that I have been requesting them.
Remember when CrowdStrike CEO Shawn Henry testified that his company found no “concrete” evidence that the DNC had been hacked (by Russians or anyone else)? He also testified that they found evidence that data had been prepared for “exfiltration.” I strongly suspect that the data prepared for “exfiltration” was found on Seth's work laptop, and I strongly suspect that Seth had downloaded that data onto a thumb drive.
In our FOIA request, we sought all of the CrowdStrike reports about the “hack” of the DNC in 2016. First the FBI ignored that portion of our request, hoping we wouldn't notice that they had failed to respond. After we called them out, the feds belatedly conducted a search and found three CrowdStrike reports. It produced ONLY the cover page for each report (we're still fighting that in court, too).
Remember when Sy Hersh said one of his sources read to him from an intel report indicating that Wikileaks got the DNC emails from an internal DNC source rather than from Russian hackers? (Julian Assange has all but said the same.) Hersh later testified under oath that he got the information from an intel source that he had known for over 30 years, and he still believed his source. I suspect the report he's talking about is the FBI's report on Seth's work laptop.
The FBI lied and cheated for five years in order to hide that laptop report, and it's still fighting to hide that report from the public.
I Need Your Support!
Who’s the only reporter in the world to ask Dr. Fauci why he funded the Wuhan Lab of Virology? Who was the first reporter to confront Jen Psaki about Hunter Biden and his Chinese investments? Who asked President Trump when he would stop the NIH’s funding of the Wuhan Lab in April 2020 — a year before any other media outlet?
