Pulitzer-Prize Winning Reporter: FBI Report Shows It Was Seth Rich – Not Russians – Who Gave DNC Emails to Wikileaks

We’ve noted for many months that the DNC emails were leaked by an insider, not hacked by the Russians.

Pulitzer-prize winning investigative reporter Seymour Hersh – who revealed in 1974 that the CIA was spying on Americans, who broke the story of the Mai Lai massacre in Vietnam and the Iraq prison torture scandal – said in a recent phone interview linked by WikiLeaks:

[The DC police took Seth Rich’s computer, but couldn’t get past his password.] So they call the FBI cyber unit.




The Feds get through [the password-protection on Rich’s computer], and this is what they find. This is accoring to the FBI report.




What the report says is that – some time in late spring or early summer – he [Rich] makes contact with WikiLeaks. That’s in his computer.




They [the FBI] found what he [Rich] had done was he had submitted a series of documents – of emails, of juicy emails – from the DNC.


By the way, all this shit about the DNC, where the hack, it wasn’t hacked …


He [Rich] offered a sample, an extensive sample, I’m sure dozens of emails, and said I want money. [Remember, WikiLeaks often pays whistleblowers.]


Later, WikiLeaks did get the password. He [Rich] had a dropbox, a protected dropbox, which isn’t hard to do.




They got access to the dropbox. That’s in the FBI report.


He also let people know with whom he was dealing … the word was passed, according to the FBI report, “I also shared this box with a couple of friends, so if anything happens to me, it’s not going to solve your problem”.




But WikiLeaks got access, before he was killed.




I have a narrative of how that whole fucking thing began.   It’s a [former CIA director John] Brennan operation. It was an American disinformation [campaign].

If the laptop is in the possession of the FBI (and hasn't disappeared from the evidence room) it shows how far the rot goes - all the way to the top of the J. Edgar Hoover Building - the Comey/McCabe double act.The new chief has a serious job on his hands cleansing the FBI of the gut-wrenching political corruption, and returning some semblance of respect to a thoroughly laughable reputation. He can start by sacking his No2 and requesting Seth Rich's laptop on his desk as a good first order of business.Which reminds me. The Daily Mail had Christopher Wray confirmed by the Senate yesterday, yet I cannot find it covered at ZH. Have I missed something?

mcCain is a tool of the democrat party, duh.   if you prefer to consider both parties one party, that is fine too.  It is obvious that what is said and done outside the beltway and what is said and done inside the beltway are two completely different things.     you are a fool if you think the republicans are as dangerous as the democrats.  They are dangerous to the degree that they are moronic syncophants for the democrat/media industrial complex.  But the democrats rake in tax dollars to feed their destruction of the US thru every crypto marxist organization they can concieve.   They are methodically replacing the population and killing off the unwanteds with drugs, until they have complete control of the power structure.

 "you are a fool if you think the republicans are as dangerous as the democrats"did you hear about the events of 9-11-01?  they occurred under a republican president with help from two long time mossad assets, dick cheney and donald rumsfeld.  two illegal, aggressive, nuremberg trial vulnerable wars resulted from that false flag event.  and the rolling back of the civil liberties of the u.s. population significantly accelerated as a result.every damn bit as dangerous as democrats.  they are two wings of the same mossad/likud zionist transnational, multi-generational criminal enterprise.http://www.voltairenet.org/article179295.htmlhttp://www.whale.to/b/isra….   http://topdocumentaryfilms.com/everything-rich-man-trick/https://smile…

Get the story below into the main stream consciousness, get the evidence and the 47 hard drives pried out of FBI custody, find an honest un-compromised prosecuting general counsel, a brave patriotic jury panel, an un-compromised Federal Judge or four and a couple Divisions of US Marine Corps combat troops and appropriate air cover back-up to round up all the perpetrators and their support (1000s) and slice through their layers of heavily armed security and you can have your wish of seeing Brennan and Clapper behind bars.

Don't get me wrong,.........I think it's doable. ... Just more complicated than you might be at first assuming.

I call it mandatory for preserving the US Constitution.

Keep recruiting the wide-awake and educating them on the sad gory details.

Kick a few bunks of those still sleeping. .. Those you feel have the potential of understanding the problem and can be motivated to fix it.

All we need is about 10% +/- ? ready to stand up and back up some serious reform. ...... The other 90% don't count. .. They will go anywhere the 10% lead them.

That is what the bad guys (Ass Wipes Inc, the crooks) know too. And that's why they work so hard ant keeping everyone confused and divided. .. You can never build a consensus on every little detail.

You don't need anywhere near a majority. ... You need a highly motivated, highly unified, 'SWAT force'. ... One where everyone on the team understands what the goal is and what the stakes are. .. You don't even have to like the guy next to you. You have to trust and respect him and have a firm common goal. ..

It is simple for me; Fully restore the US Constitution, the rule of law and get 'outside-overseas influence', MIC and blackmail corruption out of the US government.

Talk to and at your dot mil buddies too. ... They care about the US Constitution and their kids,.........or should.

MSM is working OT trying to run cover over this.  Eventually... could already be happening... is the cover just brings more attention.  With the Russia narrative running full retard now, the traitorous scum in the shadows appear to be running short of diversionary tactics.  I still hold out hope that one big-ass shoe will drop at some point.  Once that happens, all bets are off.  No honor among thieves.  Once the knives come out in the name of self-preservation it might just be a mad rush for immunity.  Vegas will need a whole new subdivision for the witness relocation participants.

The corporate state hates Hersh for a long litany of reasons.  My Lai.  CIA spying on Americans.  Abu Ghraib.  The Syrian chemical attack hoax.  Hersh has always been a hero on the Left, but the military, intelligence, law enforcement, Deep State, and their servitors, patrons and fans have hated him so intensely for so long it's a wonder he's alive.That includes the entire Democratic and Republican Party.  Hersh isn't a partisan and he's nobody's operative.  Those giddy over his finding this conveniently forget their past positions.  Hersh hasn't forgotten them, you can count on that.

Breaking news!!

CNN just gave 15 seconds to the DWS/Awan story. Followed by a 90 second clip of a comedian impersonating Mooch and mocking Trump.

Move along....nothing to see here.

How did Hersh get the FBI report? Why not publish that? I'd like to believe the story but there's that 'evidence' thing.Everything is fake news until proven otherwise.

swmnguy hoytmonger Wed, 08/02/2017 - 09:26 Permalink

Nobody has better sources than Hersh.  That's because he isn't a partisan, and he doesn't burn sources.  He'd rather take the hit and stand on principle even if it dooms his story, rather than grab at the spotlight and burn his sources.  He won't publish the report because it would burn his source.  He'll find other ways to corroborate what he already has.Hersh isn't going to become Hannity's co-host.  But he has a long, long record of revealing the stories which are true, which many people know are true, but which the existing power structure conspires to conceal.  Until quite recently, it's been the Right who have hated Hersh the most, as he did as much as anybody to destroy their narrative of the gallant US military, and the conscientious intelligence/security state.

If this is true how could the story not have come out sooner? How would this hot-shot reporter get this kind of information when others have not? If true, obviously its one of the biggest stories of the year.

Wikileaks is so 2016. We want to hear about the crimes of the person that is supposedly in charge. We want to know about the dead bodies in Drumpf's history. Mueller is getting closer by the day and Hot Head drumpf is panicking. How long will general Kelly be able to keep his client under control? Will the Generals have to step in with 8 cabinet members, a straight jacket and a hypo full of enough Thorazine to keep Drumpf from hurting himself. Time will tell.

Since both hilary and President Trump were (are, now, even more so) two of the most hated candidates to ever run for office since Richie Kuszak and Don Sebastian ran for Senior Class President in my High School (this is an all male high school and they lost in a landslide to the school mascot) it is fitting, if you are correct,  that President Trump not finish his first term, year or election cycle if there is any real justice in the cosmos. If you are not correct there are likely 4 to 8 more years of Trump Entertainment in store for us.Howsomever, President Trump has achieved the most upsetting victory in the history of Presidential elections in our lifetimes.So from that standpoint we have him to thank, nay, bow down to his bare feet, for ending one of the most criminally inspired political careers in the last 2000 years.  HE stomped clinton and Company's face into the mud, along with you and 64,000,000 in a few states, a victory no one can ever take from him and which will be remembered long into the future.  A nobody beating the most pumped, financed, and 'fixed' candidate to be offered up by the democrats who  could not in 30 years present that opportunity to one other democratic female who would have been electable at least 4 times.  Shame on them.  The result of this electoral equivalent of the atomic bomb?President Trump's opponents, are reduced to the infantile imagining of ways to add letters to his name and his supporters, which has all the impact of a flea fart in a hurricane.  Thats' it. That is all you can do:  ridicule his name to attempt to make him look worse than he portrays himself. Have at it while you are permanently sucking hind tit, as we say on the farm.

Just keep on contributing to the truth GW. Most don't pay attention to the MSM these days and these little tidbits, make the rounds and enlighten those of us who are alert, awake and still give a shit.
Just keep on shooting yourselves in the foot Libtarded Snowflakes, with your "narratives, fairy tales and school plays."

The idealist Seth wanted cash for the truth?  There is no honor among Demorats?   If the FBI can release the report blaming Russia for the hacking, the FBI can release this report showing the reverse, too.   Sessions, head of the DOJ and its agency FBI, where are you?

Chupacabra-322 Reaper Wed, 08/02/2017 - 09:06 Permalink

@ Reaper,

The "FBI" is Criminal. That statement has been proven Irrefutably time & time again.

Like here:

A federal investigator who reviewed an FBI forensic report detailing the contents of DNC staffer Seth Rich’s computer generated within 96 hours after his murder, said Rich made contact with WikiLeaks through Gavin MacFadyen, a now-deceased American investigative reporter, documentary filmmaker, and director of WikiLeaks who was living in London at the time.

This explosive information was being suppressed by James Comey...FUCK the Criminal FBI!
