Former Fox News Guest Apologizes to Seth Rich's Brother for DNC Conspiracy Theory [View all]

Source: Law & Crime

A Texas-based wealth advisor apologized to the brother of slain Democratic National Committee (DNC) staffer Seth Rich via Twitter on Wednesday afternoon over his role in promoting a series of false conspiracy theories about the circumstances leading up to Rich’s death.

Those tweets were posted by pro-Trump activist Ed Butowsky and are suspected to be part of a settlement agreement reached in a long-running series of defamation lawsuits filed by various members of the Rich family. The posts have since been deleted but screenshots of the messages were preserved by Law&Crime.

“During 2017 and 2018 I made a number of comments stating or implying that Aaron Rich, the brother of Seth Rich who was tragically murdered in July 2016, had been involved in downloading and transferring emails from the DNC to WikiLeaks and receiving payment in exchange,” Butowsky wrote in one of the three tweets.

“I never had physical proof to back up any such statements or suggestions, which I now acknowledge I should not have made,” the second and third tweets note. “Accordingly, I now retract and apologize for any statement I have made asserting or implying that Aaron Rich downloaded or transferred DNC emails to WikiLeaks or received payment in exchange. I take full responsibility for my comments and I apologize for any pain I have caused. I sincerely hope the Rich family is able to find out who murdered their son and bring this tragic chapter in their lives to a close.”
