President Donald Trump is being accused of knowingly and actively trying to spread false news about the murder of DNC employee Seth Rich in a new lawsuit. Rod Wheeler filed a complaint on Tuesday in the Southern District of New York against Fox News, Malia Zimmerman and Ed Butowsky claiming that they worked together to create a false narrative surrounding the death of Rich. Also contributing to the creation of that fake news story was President Trump according to court documents, which claim that the Commander-in-Chief wanted the story to include multiple fake quotes which were attributed to Wheeler. Wheeler is a former Washington DC homicide detective who investigated Rich's murder and frequently appeared as a guest on Fox News to discuss the case.

Wheeler has the texts that were sent to him.

The filing also includes a text message from Butowsky, a Texas wealth manager and Trump supporter, to Wheeler, in which he discusses the President's eagerness to see the story published.

'Not to add any more pressure but the president just read the article. He wants the article out immediately. It's now all up to you. But don't feel the pressure,' Butowsky texted Wheeler according to the filing. 

'The motivation behind the article: establish that Seth Rich provided WikiLeaks with the DNC emails to shift the blame from Russia and help put to bed speculation that President Trump colluded with Russia in an attempt to influence the outcome of the Presidential election,' states the lawsuit.

this is odd. the guy was investigating the murder for FOX and now he's suing trump :huh:

This is the final straw.  Maxine Watters will be calling for PRESIDENT Trump's impeachment for sure now.  The Russian PeePee tape didn't do it, but this will.

there will come a point where even Republicans are uncomfortable defending him.

Does a person running for public office have responsibilities for telling the truth and not commiting slander?

 

Trump is an entertainer and an actor. It was his public persona that committed these alleged acts, not the man himself. Plus, it is irritating snowflakes, so it is good for the country. MAGA!

I'm just thinking of his legal defense

If this is true Trump would rather create a story to float the notion that Hillary had the guy executed,

rather than have "the Russians did it" become accepted as true.

in his defense he certainly knew what his base wanted to believe.

I have known Butowsky personally for about 20 years and wouldn't trust him alone in a room with FnM's wallet for ten seconds. Braggart. Liar. Name dropper. And some things I am sure Tim's bots would squelch.
