Hannity: Assange “Knows” Source of DNC Emails


by Sharon Rondeau

(Oct. 16, 2017) — In a continuation of his tweets from Sunday night, “Hannity” host Sean Hannity tweeted on Monday afternoon, “. is the ONE person that knows exactly where the DNC emails came from-Y doesn’t Mueller, FBI, DOJ and congress want the truth?”

As The Post & Email reported on Monday morning, Hannity and Assange traded tweets on Sunday evening in an indication that no U.S. government agency tasked with investigating Russian “collusion” and interference in the 2016 presidential election had approached Assange despite reports conveyed through Rep. Dana Rohrabacher that Assange claims to possess evidence relevant to both.

At least three U.S. intelligence agencies reportedly found that Russian government operatives breached the server of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) in 2016 and provided thousands of incriminating emails and attachments to WikiLeaks, founded by Assange 11 years ago to expose corruption in governments around the world.

Assange has insisted publicly that the source of the emails, which he began publishing on July 22, 2016, was not the Russian government or any “state party.” Wikileaks never confirms the identity of its sources.

Last spring, Hannity began to broadcast the reported findings of then-FNC contributor Rod Wheeler, a former homicide detective with the Washington, DC Police Department. As his reportage progressed over the week of May 16, 2017, members of the mainstream media, to include The Huffington Post, The Washington Post, Yahoo! News and many others, excoriated, ridiculed, and marginalized Hannity for exploring Wheeler’s contention that slain DNC staffer Seth Rich provided the emails and attachments to WikiLeaks.

Wheeler later changed some of his statements, claiming that Fox News reporter Malia Zimmerman had misquoted him in her May 16, 2017 article which FNC pulled from its server. The article remains active in other places.

In July, Wheeler sued FNC for alleged racial discrimination as well as for allegedly having been misquoted on the Rich matter.  The story, however, began with a local Fox affiliate, Channel 5 in Washington, DC, to whom Wheeler first spoke about his alleged findings connecting Rich and Wikileaks.

Channel 5 later clarified its story based on Wheeler’s walking back of some of his comments but did not remove its reportage.

Rich’s death has never been solved and reportedly classified as a “botched robbery,” although the valuables he carried were left on his person by his attacker or attackers.

In a tweet responding to Assange just minutes earlier on Monday, Hannity remarked, “My take is this is a witch hunt VS and they do NOT want the truth as it will expose a massive lie perpetrated on the American people!”

    TPS Your remark on # 1 massive lie is correct. Thanks.

    JD One more day. Keep in the fight just one more day. Go just one day at a time.
    Indeed, I know how you feel. We have a mountain to climb. I use to be down,
    but I am thankful for many others who have been leading the fight to reveal
    evidence, file court papers, write books, do videos, take out newspaper ads,
    contact Congress through visits, letters, phone calls, file court challenges,
    and have taken nearly other endless actions too.

    My wife quite some time ago asked me if I was going to continue to be involved in
    fighting for our country. I responded that it was taking up lots of time and personal
    funds and time from the family. She replied, if you don’t get involved, who will?
    She told me in a way, she had my back. In fighting for our country and the
    Constitution, and to keep our beloved county free, “we have each others back”.
    We can’t win if we don’t show up to fight/defend America.

    So, let’s all of us be in prayer and repent and put our packs on and engage.

    It’s breath-taking just how impervious to investigation by the U.S. government this and other scandals continue to be. The stuff of spy novels, I swear. For cover, the powers-to-be are counting on our short attention spans and busy lives, and, so far, they’re strategy is wildly successful. In the end, I really don’t think the American people will EVER know the truth, and that alone is why I’m certain this so-called constitutional republic is, for all practical purposes, d-e-a-d. Without a virtuous electorate and virtuous representatives, the country doesn’t stand a chance. My bumper sticker pretty much says it all: “Secession Sounds Better Every Day.” Sadly, that may be our last best hope for constitutional order and the rule of law. This union has outlived its usefulness, I’m afraid.

    From the article – thank you.

    Last paragraph:
    “In a tweet responding to Assange just minutes earlier on Monday, Hannity remarked, “My take is this is a witch hunt VS @POTUS and they do NOT want the truth as it will expose a massive lie perpetrated on the American people!””

    Then the above would be the second massive lie perpetrated on the American people, just behind Barack HUSSEIN Obama.
