WHORE MEDIA: Russian intel planted fake report that Seth Rich was killed by assassins working for Clinton

Russian intelligence agents spread a false report claiming assassins working for Hillary Clinton killed Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich just days after his murder, according to a new investigation.

The SVR, Russia’s foreign intelligence service, spread a fake intelligence report about Rich on July 13, 2016, three days after he was killed walking home, a federal prosecutor told Yahoo News.

The Russians claimed Rich, a 27-year-old working as a data director for the DNC, was going to alert the FBI to corrupt dealings by Clinton when he was murdered by assassins. Those details then appeared on whatdoesitmean.com, an obscure website that promotes Russian propaganda.

the next two years, media organizations owned by the Russian government emphasized stories falsely alleging Rich leaked Democratic Party emails to WikiLeaks.

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange also made false statements about Rich’s death to obscure that the hacked emails came from Russia, special counsel Robert Mueller alleged in his redacted report on Russian interference in the 2016 election.

The Internet Research Agency, a Russian troll factory that engaged in social media influence operations during the election, aggressively circulated the conspiracy theories, helping to keep the false claims alive.

The conspiracy was also spread by allies of President Trump.

The same day Assange falsely indicated Rich was behind the leaks, Stone tweeted a photo of the slain DNC staffer, writing “another dead body in the Clinton’s wake. Coincidence? I think not.”

Steve Bannon, who was serving as Trump’s White House strategist, claimed in a March 2017 text message to CBS “60 Minutes” producer that the murder was a “contract kill, obviously.”

“It sure doesn’t look like a robbery,” Jay Sekulow, one of Trump’s attorneys in the Russia investigation, told Sean Hannity in May 2017. “There’s one thing this thing undercuts is this whole Russia argument, [which] is such subterfuge.”
