In his last White House press conference, President Barack Obama referred to DNC emails “that were leaked,” during an unscripted segment.
Obama’s statement on “the DNC emails that were leaked” comes at the 8:30 Mark In This Video:
Obama’s intent cannot be fully discerned in the clip, and he could have been referring to the Russians as the leakers to Wikileaks. But considering the mounting evidence in this case that slain DNC staffer Seth Rich was Wikileaks’ source (which Julian Assange has suggested but not formally confirmed due to Wikileaks’ policy of protecting sources), it is also highly possible that Obama committed a Freudian slip.
Fox News’ original (now-deleted) report on the Seth Rich case, by Malia Zimmerman, cited a federal investigator who reviewed an FBI forensic report as being the main source of the claim that Seth Rich leaked DNC emails to Wikileaks.
