guess what was left out....
Not one of these exclusives appeared in the pages of The New Yorker, however. Instead, Hersh delivered them in speeches on college campuses and in front of organizations like the American Civil Liberties Union and on public-radio shows like “Democracy Now!” In most cases, Hersh attaches a caveat—such as “I’m just talking now, I’m not writing”—before unloading one of his blockbusters, which can send bloggers and reporters scurrying for confirmation.
Every writer understands that there is a gap between the print persona and the actual self, but Hersh subscribes to a bright-line test, a wider chasm than is usually acknowledged, particularly in today’s multimedia age.
There are two Hershes, really. Seymour M. is the byline. He navigates readers through the byzantine world of America’s overlapping national-security bureaucracies, and his stories form what Hersh has taken to calling an “alternative history” of the Bush administration since September 11, 2001.
Then there’s Sy. He’s the public speaker, the pundit. On the podium, Sy is willing to tell a story that’s not quite right, in order to convey a Larger Truth. “Sometimes I change events, dates, and places in a certain way to protect people,” Hersh told me. “I can’t fudge what I write. But I can certainly fudge what I say.”

For Wikileaks THEMSELVES to produce solid evidence that Seth was "their guy".
WHY can't WL do that?
It would sure put things to rest...

HERE is audio in Hersh's own words and an accusation from Journalist Seymour Hersh stating that Seth Rich (and NOT the Ruskies) gave Wikileaks the DNC emails. Hersh cites an FBI doc. to back up his claim.
I wonder if this revelation is the reason for all the smoke and mirrors about the Wheeler/FOX/Trump Seth Rich lawsuit story entering the scene today through all the usual media suspects.
You decide, ATS.
CAUTION: Hersh uses THE 'F' word more than a few times in the audio.
P.S. For those interested, Seymour Hersh is a Pulitzer Prize-winning American journalist.
In an audio recording provided to Big League Politics by a source that currently wishes to remain anonymous, journalist Seymour Hersh confirms that Seth 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.”
Hersh explains that it was unclear how the negotiations went, but that WikiLeaks did obtain access to a password protected DropBox where Rich had put the files.

then the FBI needs to be investigated by ......whoever investigates the FBI.
I would think that if Hersh really had the goods, he would have published a story himself. We're talking Pulitzer level stuff here without a doubt if it were true.
Instead he blabs it to a GOP hatchet man who in turn relays it to a relatively unknown Fox News reporter who then falsely attributes the information to a guy who has some credibility issues of his own to get it printed?
I would have thought they'd have wanted to talk to Wheeler to confirm the quotes and ask him quite a number of frank questions — extensive ass covering — before a story like that was published.
