Hannity Preps ‘Huge Announcement Tonight About Seth Rich’ As Fox Retracts Story
Sean Hannity is preparing America for a “huge announcement tonight about Seth Rich” on his Fox News show at 10 PM Eastern. Hannity is also vowing to reveal news about his “future” at Fox News.
“Huge announcement tonight about Seth Rich, Trump/Russian Collusion corrupt media, the liberal effort to silence me. And my future at Fox!,” Hannity tweeted Tuesday evening.
The Metropolitan Police Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Department of Justice are claiming that no Seth Rich records exist as media pressure builds on alternative outlets to back off the Seth Rich story.
Fox News retracted its May 16 story on the Seth Rich case Tuesday after CNN and The Daily Beast both used anonymous sources to claim that Fox News employees are horrified by host Sean Hannity’s pursuit of the story. Hannity has been in contact with Julian Assange ally Kim Dotcom, who claims that Rich was the source of Wikileaks’ DNC email dump. Assange also used the #SethRich hashtag to declare that Wikileaks does not reveal sources but that other third parties can reveal Wikileaks’ sources, prior to Dotcom’s statement Tuesday.
The Fox News story reported that a federal investigator confirmed that murdered DNC staffer Seth Rich had been in contact with Wikileaks prior to his death.
Fox News did not actually refute any of the claims in its story, but rather offered a vague reasoning that the story did not meet editorial standards, stating: “On May 16, a story was posted on the Fox News website on the investigation into the 2016 murder of DNC Staffer Seth Rich. The article was not initially subjected to the high degree of editorial scrutiny we require for all our reporting. Upon appropriate review, the article was found not to meet those standards and has since been removed. We will continue to investigate this story and will provide updates as warranted.”
Hannity tweeted out a KimDotcom tweet Sunday linking to Cassandra Fairbanks’ extensive Big League Politics reporting on the Rich case. Hannity called for Congress to investigate the murder.
Immediately, Hannity and Big League Politics were attacked by the establishment, with Ana Navarro accusing us of “Fake News.”
This is fake news. Everyone must stop & condemn this insanity. Humanity & empathy towards grieving parents matter more than politics. Please https://t.co/MMFxuBZSL0

Former Hillary Clinton aide Adam Parkhomenko has also been attacking Fairbanks on Twitter.
Buzzfeed reporter Jason Leopold revealed Tuesday that the FBI and DOJ are claiming that they have no Seth Rich documents.

Leopold also reported that the Metropolitan Police Department told him “no responsive records could be located” pursuant to a FOIA request on Seth Rich information.
Three Metropolitan Police Department officers were wearing body cameras when they found an alive and conscious Rich with gunshot wounds in D.C. on the early morning of July 10. Democrat crisis communications consultant Brad Bauman, who is representing the Rich family, told Big League Politics that he was unaware of the existence of body camera footage.
Tom Fitton at Judicial Watch is fighting on to get to the truth about the Seth Rich case.

Since the most recent iteration of this controversy began, Big League Politics has been reporting the facts and pushing for the release of all information that can finally solve the murder of Seth Rich and clear up any confusion about the source of the Wikileaks DNC email release. Big League Politics remains committed to our factual reporting in the interest of transparency.
