On Monday, conspiracy theorist Jerome Corsi apologized to the family of former DNC staffer Seth Rich and InfoWars has retracted the column he wrote in 2018 alleging Seth and “his brother, Aaron Rich, were involved in downloading and leaking emails from the DNC to WikiLeaks.”
The retraction said Corsi got most of his information from a Washington Times article, which has also been retracted:
"Dr. Corsi acknowledges that his allegations were not based upon any independent factual knowledge regarding Seth or Aaron Rich. Instead, Dr. Corsi relied primarily on, and quoted from, a column by Adm. James Lyons (Ret.) that was published in the Washington Times on March 2, 2018, but was retracted on September 30, 2018. (The Washington Times’ retraction is available here.)
It was not Dr. Corsi’s intent to rely upon inaccurate information, or to cause any suffering to Mr. Rich’s family. To that end, Dr. Corsi retracts the article and apologizes to the Rich family."

Bummer, would’ve much preferred a couple manical rants on Joe Rogan’s podcast in clearing all this up...have they charged anyone in Seth Rich’s death?
Shooting and deathEdit
On Sunday, July 10, 2016, at 4:20 a.m., Rich was shot about a block from his apartment at the southwest corner of Flagler Place and W Street Northwest in the Bloomingdale neighborhood of Washington, D.C.
Earlier that night he had been at Lou's City Bar, a sports pub 1.8 miles (2.9 km) from his apartment, in Columbia Heights, where he was a regular customer. He left when the bar was closing, at about 1:30 or 1:45 a.m. Police were alerted to gunfire at 4:20 a.m. by an automated gunfire locator. Within approximately one minute after the gun shots, police officers found Rich conscious with multiple gunshot wounds. He was transported to a nearby hospital, where he later died. According to police, he died from two shots to the back and may have been killed in an attempted robbery, noting that the neighborhood had recently been plagued by robberies. Rich's mother told NBC's Washington affiliate WRC-TV, "There had been a struggle. His hands were bruised, his knees are bruised, his face is bruised, and yet he had two shots to his back, and yet they never took anything ... They didn't finish robbing him, they just took his life." The police told the family they had located a surveillance recording showing a glimpse of the legs of two people who could possibly be the killers.
The Metropolitan Police Department of the District of Columbia (MPDC) posted its customary reward of $25,000 for information about the death.
On August 9, 2016, WikiLeaks announced a $20,000 reward for information about Rich's murder leading to a conviction,although Rich's family said they were unable to verify this reward offer. WikiLeaks stated that this offer should not be taken as implying Rich had been involved in leaking information to them.
In November 2016, Republican lobbyist Jack Burkman said he was personally offering a $100,000 reward in addition to those announced by the police department and WikiLeaks, and he added another $5,000 to his offer in December and another $25,000 in January. Burkman said he hoped the money would help "get to the truth of what happened here and will either debunk the conspiracy theories or validate them."

explain how I am "running interference" for the Democratic party, I have asked and you never seem to be able to answer that question
If you are asking what I think of Seth Rich, I think he was killed because he stole things from the DNC computer in retaliation for Sanders
Which tells me there may be more to this then what is currently understood.

True, and agreed, but wouldn't it make sense for the Trump administration to get that released if it proved Seth is the one who hacked the DNC

If the DNC is willing to waste $1.2 Billion to get Hillary elected. I'm sure they are willing to pay to shut this guy up. Looks like it worked too, but doesn't change anything.
