Sean Hannity colluded with the Russians in plain sight. Follow me on this one. It all goes back to the murder of Seth Rich. Seth Rich was a DNC staffer in Washington DC. In the most unfortunate turn of events, on July 10, 2016, Mr. Rich was murdered outside his home. The investigation into his murder is still open.
It seems that because of the arbitrary timing of this terrible crime, some conspiracy theories resulted from who might have killed Mr. Rich, that there might have been a specific motive to his untimely death.
Let’s remember that in July of 2016, America was in the throws of a very contentious Presidential campaign. It was Hillary Clinton vs Donald Trump. Wikileaks had released publicly many of the emails stolen from the DNC and Jon Podesta.
It was Julian Assange that first floated the entirely incorrect theory that Seth Rich was murdered on the orders of Hillary Clinton as retribution for Mr. Rich being the secret leaker of DNC emails to Wikileaks.
To bring this to today, the 12 indictments released by Robert Mueller totally show that the true leaker to Assange was Gucifer 2.0, a front for Russian military intelligence officers.
This means that Assange knew at the time that the leaker was not Seth Rich, but Gucifer 2.0. Whether Wikileaks founder Julian Assange knew that Gucifer was really Russians is up for debate, but given Mr. Assange’s knowledge of hacking and false fronts, I’d say it’s a pretty safe bet that Assange knew Gucifer was Russian.
This means that when Assange floated the conspiracy theory that Seth Rich was killed by Clinton for being the leaker of his emails, he knew Russia was behind it.
Do you know who was Julian Assange’s biggest media boosters in 2016-2017? One guess. That’s right, it’s Sean Hannity!
Hannity immediately pounced on the (false) idea that Clinton had Rich killed for being the leaker. Do you know what a red herring is? If not, look it up. Suffice to say that the Seth Rich conspiracy theory was a huge red herring, taking the focus of the fact that it was Russia that stole and then released the DNC’s emails.
Hannity even visited Assange at the Ecuadorian embassy in London in early 2017 to get him on the record saying that his source for the leaks was not Russia.
Needless to say Sean Hannity on his program pushed the Seth Rich murder conspiracy theory to the nth degree. He finally stopped after Fox News issued a redaction of the story and Seth’s parents basically begged Mr. Hannity to stop replaying their son’s murder nightly on TV.
The Seth Rich murder conspiracy was Hannity’s proof that it had not been…wait for it…RUSSIA that hacked the DNC.
If Julian Assange knew, then Mr. Hannity knew it was Russia. That means that Sean Hannity actively tried to take the focus of blame off the Russians. Collude much?
I should have known. Those who have the most to lose when Mueller comes out with his indictments have been the biggest defenders of Donald Trump, and here they are in order: Sean Hannity, Devin Nunes, and the NRA.
Suck it, Fox! You’ve just been Hawked.
