The Mueller report addressed the conspiracy theory surrounding Seth Rich, the slain DNC staffer that many believed had hacked the emails that ended up embarrassing the Hillary Clinton campaign in 2016.

According to the report, WikiLeaks’ founder Julian Assange implied that the documents had been hacked by Rich in order to cover for a Russian espionage agency.

The conspiracy theory had been substantiated by a false report that was picked by many outlets including Fox News, who later retracted their story.

Sean Hannity had multiple shows on the theory that the Clinton emails were exposed by Seth Rich and that he was murdered in retaliation. Rich was found dead from gunshots in July 2016 in Washington D.C.

Police officially blamed a botched robbery for the death, but conspiracy theorists latched on to the case despite protestations from his family.

Assange helped stir the pot when he made statements implying that Rich had something to do with the emails WikiLeaks had made public ahead of the 2016 election.

Mueller’s report tries to dispel those claims.

“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 Mueller report said.

“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,” the report explained.

Despite not saying so explicitly, the report concluded that Assange’s “statements about Rich implied falsely that he had been the source of the stolen DNC emails.”

    The Wikileaks drops came from Seth Rich, period.

    Robbers hold you up, they don’t shoot you in the back for your phone or wallet, which you may not even have on you.

    What a cover-up. They think people are super dumb.

      Nothing about that case’s “official” story is true= he didn’t LIVE near the corner he was DUMPED OUT at….after a 2 and a half hour $HilLIARy Cabal propofol van ride? and he arrived at the ER, talking, not “near death”. His nicked liver was patched up and then during the shift change he was put in a VIP private room with 2 guards out front. Hospital workers the next day (ones who had seen Seth during their earlier shift the day before) were stunned when they were told he “didn’t make it” because he was just fine the last time they saw him! Download if important to you because this has disappeared off YouTube twice before= the Title now doesn’t match the story on purpose. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7By3YJEoBbU

        Donna Brazile asked Hillary to put up a Reward for the person or persons responsible for Seth Rich Murder. HRC didnt bother to do anything according to Brazile. Donna Brazile also commented that she feared for her safety, kept her blinds closed and was afraid to leave her house for awhile. We all know Hillary, Podesta and the DNC was behind the murder of this young man. Why? Because he had proof they were gonna screw Bernie Sanders from the get go. We all know Bernie had a huge following and would have won they election, but Hillary, Wasserman Schuktz, Podesta and the DNC fucked Bernie Sanders. I wish Bernie Sanders was put under oath for he knows the truth. HRC and the DNC paid Bernie off to keep quiet. This tells me that the Democrat politicians care more about money and power over LIFE. Yes, HRC, DNC and Tony Podesta are all murderers in my opinion. They planned the hot, so they are murderers too

      I totally agree. Seth Rich is not the only person a victim of Clinton murders. This Haitian mayor or some political figure was about to go on trial for exposing that the Clinton foundation did nothing for Haiti and its people and then he was found dead in a “suicide” the day before the trial. Mueller etc are so disgusting. But what goes around comes around only i hope to see it in my lifetime.

        They were behind Justice Scalia’s death as well. I think the family knows it, but scared to come pur and say it for fear of their lives.

      You are so right. They have killed hundreds of people and got away with it. Good old Karma will strike them good. Never will they enter the pearly gates.

    That was Mueller’s job all along. Besides trying to find something Dems could use against Trump (which by the way was an epic failure), his job was to try and bury Hilary’s email troubles as well as well as cover up Rich’s death. Mueller is a dirty piece of shit and I love that the Dems want him to testify. He is going to be exposed for the fraud he is.

      You are 100% right. Mueller was hired to cover up the crooked FBI Echelon, Clinton’s, Podesta and the other crooks in the DNC

    IF the FBI had been permitted to access the DNC computer system, I might be more convinced to accept the official story. As it is, a private company whose founder was a donor to the Hillary campaign was the only one to look at the system and make a determination that “the Russians did it”.

    “U.S. intelligence community publicly announced its assessment that Russia was behind the hacking operation.” Anyone who believes Obama’s security team assessment of John Brennen and James Clapper have rocks for brain. They have been pushing the Trump-Russian Collusion narrative on all media the past two years attempting to unseat an elected President. They are an integral part of the Obama/Clinton conspiracy. The Mueller report itself debunk their false narrative. This pair should be prosecuted and jailed. Is there any doubt–Anyone cross the Clinton’s die of untimely death!!

      Jack, you are absolutely correct. Upwards of 50 persons dead.

    I agree with Pat’s assessment. This was a hit by Hillary’s people! As far as Mueller testifying, I guarantee he will allude to anything the Democrats want as to Trump’s guilt, if not, why didn’t he end all this nonsense in his report?! His answers will leave doubt so the Democrats can keep this BS up right into the election and beyond! They are scared to death of Trump because he is shining a huge light on all the corruption in the Democratic Party! The Democratic Party is worse than any mob!

    It’s my understanding ,that amount of data had to be an inside data dump, and Seth was the person who did it , because he was concerned about the parties misdeeds. Maybe even illegalities.

    I believe about Seth Rich than I ever did about the Dem frenzy of Russia Russia Russia. Collusion. Conspiracy. Obstruction. Still scratching my head over Vince Foster shooting himself in the back of the head in suicide.
