For anyone who’s been following Rod Wheeler, his filing of a lawsuit last Tuesday against FoxNews and Fox contributors Ed Butowsky and Malia Zimmerman might come as a surprise. Until very recently, Wheeler was a regular contributor on Fox. Ed Butowsky, a fellow Fox contributor had hired Wheeler to investigate the Seth Rich murder.

Wheeler became an overnight hero in the alternative media as the embattled investigator of a case in which emergency responders, DC Metro police and the two local hospitals refused to say where Rich was treated and DC’s Chief Medical Examiner refused to release Rich’s autopsy report.

Wheeler had expressed additional frustration over being denied access to Seth’s emails by the Rich family, which led him to voice suspicion that these might contain evidence of his contacts with WikiLeaks.

Now, however, Wheeler’s suit claims that “Zimmerman, Butowsky and Fox had created fake news to advance President Trump’s agenda.” He is additionally claiming racial discrimination. His lawyer, Douglas Wigdor stated that his client was “used as a pawn” to “try and steer away the attention that was being given about the Russian hacking of the DNC emails.”

The DNC is loving it. Communications Director Xochitl Hinojosa said, “If these allegations are true, it is beyond vile that the White House – and possibly even Trump himself – would use the murder of a young man to distract the public’s attention from their chaotic administration and Trump’s ties to Russia. The Rich family has begged those responsible for these conspiracies to stop. And yet, Trump’s allies have ignored their pain and their pleas, degrading the office of the president by spreading repulsive lies.”

In late June, when Wheeler initially suggested that he might sue, Butowsky tweeted, “Fox News story was pulled b/c Rod Wheeler said [he] didn’t say a quote … How much did DNC pay him?”

  • In one of Wheeler’s previous interviews he stated that he had come to believe, based on the evidence he was able to uncover, that there is a criminal cabal involved in the Seth Rich murder who is also connected to the seemingly unconnected murders of Shawn Lucas, Gavin McFadden, John Jones, Michael Ratner and possibly Vince Foster. I’d say threats are likely, too.

  • meh…he said she said…the court case will be dropped if Wheeler is as flaky as implied.

    Let’s face it, lies and spin are supreme in America today. Karl Rove commented the following to Ron Suskind of the NYT in early 2001 after SCOTUS gave POTUS to dumbya:
    “The aide said that guys like me were ”in what we call the reality-based community,” which he defined as people who ”believe that solutions emerge from your judicious study of discernible reality.” I nodded and murmured something about enlightenment principles and empiricism. He cut me off. ”That’s not the way the world really works anymore,” he continued. ”We’re an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you’re studying that reality — judiciously, as you will — we’ll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that’s how things will sort out. We’re history’s actors … and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do.”

    So, as is obvious over the past decade and a half, TPTSB have executed artful and studied manipulations of not just the American people, but of the entire planet…lies, twists, green screens, spins, wars, assassinations, stolen elections, astronomical theft and on and on…
