The Seth Rich mystery is an explosive and controversial saga. Believed to be the man who leaked Hillary Clinton’s damaging emails to WikiLeaks, he was gunned down last summer, and the case remains open to this very day. Many questions still remain, and journalists have been reticent to cover the story. Sean Hannity is one of the few with the courage to broach this story, and he refuses to back down.
“Would you like to fill in as a host on my radio show? Over 550 stations 14 million listeners,” Hannity said in a Tweet to Kim Dotcom, the international fugitive who claims to have bombshell information proving that Seth Rich leaked Clinton’s emails. He also extended the offer to Julian Assange of Wikileaks, who is apparently considering it.
Hannity has already been boycotted for covering the Seth Rich murder story. After FOX News retracted a story about Seth Rich, it was strongly rumored that Hannity would be the next to be ousted from the network. Bill O’Reilly, Megyn Kelly, Greta Van Susteren, and Roger Ailes are long-time on air personalities who were recently shown the door unceremoniously as the once ultra-conservative network changes its direction.
This has not changed Hannity’s resolve one bit, as he has continued to push the story despite the increased scrutiny.
“There is now a well-funded, well-orchestrated campaign against me in this particular case to silence me by attacking my advertisers,” Hannity said on his eponymous “Fox News” program on Tuesday. “Now, this is all put together by in part a Clinton-founded, in part, Soros-funded, in part, group… They want this show canceled. They want me off the air. It’s also an attempt to silence the FOX News Channel and talk radio.”
Thus far, the attacks have not been successful. Advertisers have either stuck by Hannity, or returned after consumer outrage. FOX News even issued a public statement claiming that his job is safe for the time being. Hannity has weathered the storm right now, but this explosive story is liable to put him back under the gun at any moment.
“I accept that my full statement should be provided to the authorities and I am prepared to do that so that there can be a full investigation… I would need a guarantee from Special Counsel Mueller, on behalf of the United States, of safe passage from New Zealand to the United States and back,” Kim Dotcom said on his official website.
If Dotcom cannot assure safe travels to the United States, he has the means of utilizing a massive bullhorn to get his explanation of events out to the public at large–as long as Hannity keeps his resolve.
