The FBI is avoiding openness over Seth Rich’s laptop, which is odd given the lapdog corporate media has already established that the agency has nothing to hide from the American public regarding the 2016 killing of the DNC worker. Unless complying with court demands would in any way undermine the official narrative of the questionable facts, we will comply.
In September, a US District Judge for the Eastern District of Texas ordered the FBI to “provide the material it possesses pertaining to Seth Rich’s laptop,” but the FBI is refusing to comply. The laptop belonging to Rich has been at the core of the conflict between opposing sides of the issue.
According to appearances, the FBI is safeguarding its story. Think about this:
In October 2020, NPR reported on the timing of the struggle over the contents of Rich’s laptop:
“A federal judge in California has ordered that Twitter reveal the identity of an anonymous user who allegedly fabricated an FBI document to spread a conspiracy theory about the killing of Seth Rich, the Democratic National Committee staffer who died in 2016.
The ruling could lead to the identification of the person behind the Twitter name @whyspertech. Through that account, the user allegedly provided forged FBI materials to Fox News. The documents falsely linked Rich’s killing to the WikiLeaks hack of Democratic Party emails in the lead-up to the 2016 election.
While Twitter fought to keep the user’s identity secret, U.S. Magistrate Judge Donna Ryu in Oakland, Calif., ordered on Tuesday that the tech company must turn over the information to attorneys representing Rich’s family in a defamation suit by Oct. 20.
It is the latest twist in a years-long saga over a conspiracy theory that rocked Washington, caused a grieving family a great deal of pain and set off multiple legal battles.
In November of 2020, NBC revealed that Rich’s parents had an official account of his death that was controversial:
“Fox News has reached a settlement with slain Democratic National Committee employee Seth Rich’s parents, who alleged in a lawsuit that the cable news company exploited their son’s death in stories and commentary.
Both sides confirmed the settlement on Tuesday.
Rich was shot and killed in 2016 in Washington, D.C., in what authorities described as a botched robbery attempt. His parents, Joel and Mary Rich, had objected to a Fox article and commentary falsely suggesting their son had leaked DNC emails to WikiLeaks during the presidential campaign.
Internet theories that Rich had been assassinated for leaking emails were contradicted by U.S. intelligence reports.”

But now there is an order for the FBI to produce what they have. Media reports show that is not happening- yet.
“To this day we still don’t have good information on Seth Rich’s murder. He was shot in the back twice in the early morning near his home. He died later in the hospital. The police recorded the event as a robbery and yet Rich’s phone, wallet, and personal items were with him when the police arrived,” Jim Hoft reported for The Gateway Pundit, adding: CONTINUE READING…
