A new bombshell report by NPR implicated Trump and the White House in the Fox News Seth Rich scandal. The report claims that a wealthy Trump supporter and Fox News worked together to manufacture the story under the supervision of the White House.
Fox News had twisted the story of Seth Rich into a conspiracy murder story. Rich’s family eventually had to demand that Fox retract its story about their fallen son, who had formerly worked as an aide for the Democratic National Committee.
According to Rod Wheeler — who worked as a paid commentator — Fox News and Trump backer, Ed Butowsky, worked together to draw eyes away from the Trump-Russia scandal.
On April 20, a month before the story ran, Butowsky and Wheeler — the investor and the investigator — met at the White House with then-press secretary Sean Spicer to brief him on what they were uncovering.
The first page of the lawsuit quotes a voicemail and text from Butowsky boasting that Trump himself had reviewed drafts of the Fox News story just before it went to air and was published.
It wasn't just Butowsky who wanted this false story pushed. Sputnik wanted me to ask the WH about it and fired me when I refused. https://t.co/kADc0hasB4

Fox and Trump’s White House put an innocent family through Hell to divert attention away from the Russia scandal.
