Emails: Ed Butowsky Pleads With Sy Hersh to Go Public With What He Knows About Seth Rich

Published

on

In an email exchange in June, Ed Butowsky pleads with Pulitzer Prize winning investigative journalist Seymour Hersh to go public with information that he had regarding the murder of Seth Rich and his contacts with WikiLeaks.

Butowsky had become interested in the case and offered to assist the Rich family with the cost of hiring a private investigator, bringing Rod Wheeler on board.

As Big League reported on Tuesday, Hersh is heard clearly stating that Rich had contacted WikiLeaks with sample emails from the leak. Hersh cites an FBI document as proof for his claim.

“There are no DNC or Podesta emails that exist beyond May 21 or 22, last email from either one of those groups. What the report says is that some time in late Spring… he makes contact with WikiLeaks, that’s in his computer,” he says. “Anyway, they found what he had done is that he had submitted a series of documents — of emails, of juicy emails, from the DNC.”

In an email exchange provided exclusively to Big League Politics by an anonymous source, Butowsky inquires as to why Hersh has not approached the Congress with what he knows.

Butowsky emails Hersh:

“I am curious why you haven’t approached the house committee telling them what you were read by your FBI friend related to Seth Rich that you in turn read to me. Based on all your work, it appears that you care about the truth. Even though, as you said you couldn’t get a second, shouldn’t you tell them so they could use their powers to determine the truth?” 

In a bizarre response completely contradicting what Hersh is heard saying on the audio recording, he denies having any inside knowledge of the case.

Hersh responds:

“ed –you have a lousy memory…i was not read anything by my fbi friend..i have no firsthand information and i really wish you would stop telling others information that you think i have…please stop relaying information that you do not have right…and that i  have no reason to believe is accurate…” 

Desperate to find the truth about what happened, Butowsky continues to plead with the journalist to go forward.

Butowsky replies:

“I know it isn’t first hand knowledge but you clearly said, my memory is perfect, that you had a friend at the FBI who read / told you what was in the file on Seth Rich and I wonder why you aren’t helping your country and sharing that information on who it was?” 

When contacted on the phone by Big League Politics Editor-in-Chief Patrick Howley to inquire about his story abruptly changing, Hersh stated, “I’m not going to comment about that stuff, I mean, come on, I live in the real world.”

When asked to confirm that it was him speaking on the bombshell audio recording, he stated, “I’m not going to talk to anybody about that. No comment.”

In the audio provided to Big League Politics, Hersh additionally accused the Obama administration of fabricating the Russian hacking narrative, as people like John Brennan and James Clapper have motivation for wanting Hillary Clinton to win the election over Donald Trump.

“Anyways, Wikileaks got access, and before he was killed- I can tell you right now Brennan is an asshole. Uh, I’ve known all these people for years. Clapper is sort of a better guy but not rocket scientist, the NSA guy’s a fucking moron, and they don’t- you know the trouble with all of those guys is that the only way they’re going to make it to a board or two and get hired by (?) and get some fat cat contracts is if Hillary stayed in. With Trump they’re gone, they’re done, they’re going to live on their pension, they’re not going to make it. And I gotta tell you guys, they don’t want to live on their pension, they want to be on boards,” Hersh says. A full transcript of the audio was posted to Reddit by a dedicated user.

Hersh has an impressive record, winning the 1970 Pulitzer Prize, the 2004 George Orwell Award for Distinguished Contribution to Honesty and Clarity in Public Language, two National Magazine Awards, and five George Polk Awards — the most any journalist has ever received. His credentials include over a dozen other awards for his reporting, which includes breaking the story about the abuses at Abu Ghraib prison and the story of the My Lai Massacre in Vietnam.

It remains unclear who or what in the “real world” caused Hersh’s knowledge of the Seth Rich case to suddenly vanish.

Chuck Schumer Threatens Supreme Court Justices: “You Will Pay the Price”

Chilling language.

Published

on

Chuck Schumer outright threatened two Supreme Court Justices when speaking at a pro-abortion event on Wednesday, using vengeful and vindictive language when discussing recent pro-life court case rulings reached by the court.

Watch here:

I want to tell you, Gorsuch, Kavanaugh…. You have unleashed the whirlwind, and you will pay the price! You won’t know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions.

Such rhetoric might be expected in one of Kim Jong Un’s regular missive of threats against the United States. But it’s shocking to hear a sitting Senate Majority Leader slam nonpartisan Supreme Court Justices in such a bold fashion, totally disregarding the court’s traditional independence from everyday politics.

The rally by a pro-abortion group was being held in advance of an expected court ruling on a Louisiana abortion law. The law requires abortionists to have admitting privileges at state hospitals.

Republican legislators slammed Schumer for his irresponsible and threatening rhetoric at the abortion rally after footage of his language was seen on Twitter.

Schumer may have been alluding to potential Democratic plans to impeach Kavanaugh, and possibly even Gorsuch, removing them from the Supreme Court. The Court’s now conservative majority has placed a major stumbling block in the way of the Left’s preferred strategy of seizing power through judicial activism.

Schumer’s unprecedented language, especially coming from a senior party official who should remain level-headed, demonstrates the Democratic Party’s willing to cast aside all formal norms of federal politics and government. They’re willing to do whatever it takes in order to get their way.
