Audio: Seymour Hersh States Seth Rich Was WikiLeaks Source
Hersh won the Pulitzer Prize in 1970 for exposing the My Lai massacre and is one of the nation’s best-known and most-accomplished investigative reporters.
On the recording, Hersh calls the entire story that the Trump presidential campaign and transition team colluded with Russia “a Brennan operation,” and accuses (former CIA Director) John Brennan, (former Director of National Intelligence) James Clapper and (current NSA Director) Michael Rogers of peddling “disinformation” and misleading Obama and the press.
He added, “Trump’s not wrong to think they all f—ing lied about him.”
Hersh suggested Rogers falsely told the press that American intelligence agencies even knew who in the Russian military intelligence service “leaked it,” in apparent reference to the hacked Democratic emails that embarrassed the Hillary Clinton 2016 presidential campaign.
Hersh ascribed a simple motive to the subterfuge by the top spies: They wanted to keep their jobs by assuring Clinton won the presidential election.
“With Trump they’re gone. You know, they’re done – they’re going to live on their pensions, they’re not going to make it.”
