Mueller Report: Assange Smeared Seth Rich to Cover for Russians

Source: Daily Beast

Julian Assange not only knew that a murdered Democratic National Committee staffer wasn’t his source for thousands of hacked party emails, he was in active contact with his real sources in Russia’s GRU months after Seth Rich’s death. At the same time he was publicly working to shift blame onto the slain staffer “to obscure the source of the materials he was releasing,” Special Counsel Robert Mueller asserts in his final report on Russia’s role in the 2016 presidential election.

“After the U.S. intelligence community publicly announced its assessment that Russia was behind the hacking operation, Assange continued to deny that the Clinton materials released by WikiLeaks had come from Russian hacking,” the report reads. “According to media reports, Assange told a U.S. congressman that the DNC hack was an ‘inside job,’ and purported to have ‘physical proof’ that Russians did not give materials to Assange.”

With Assange behind it, the Seth Rich hoax moved into the almost-mainstream, spawning a quickly-retracted report on Fox News, and a series of “investigations” by Assange ally Sean Hannity. It also wreaked havoc in the lives of Rich’s surviving family, particularly his anguished parents who later begged perpetrators of the charade “to give us peace, and to give law enforcement the time and space to do the investigation they need to solve our son's murder.”

Even as he was ruthlessly framing Rich to protect himself, the GRU, or both, Assange was privately communicating with his real sources to arrange the transfer of the second election leak, material the GRU stole from John Podesta’s Gmail account.

7. The truly sad thing is the Russians may have planned this as a cover story.

The Russian intelligence agencies would think nothing is wrong with killing an innocent man to provide cover for an intelligence operation.

11. Assange really fooled a lot of people, to whom it never occurred he would be lying.

It took a long time, but finally the truth surfaced, after the intelligent, hard work of some very dedicated people.

I am sorry for distancing from a DU'er who apparently saw through him immediately. The DU'er's heart had always been in the right spot before then, and I simply stopped believing in him. I never expected to learn how wrong I was, thinking it was the other poster.

Live and learn, I surely hope.

Thank you, highplainsdem.

15. We knew they were all lowlife pieces of shit, but

this early report proves that this rabbit hole of evil depravity is truly bottomless...

Anybody still want to play that "BUT JULIAN ASSANGE IS A LEGIT JOURNALIST!!!!!111111" -card? Anyone at all? Anybody still want to argue that his arrest is somehow unfair?
