People like that

"MEGATHREAD: Seymour Hersh discusses Seth Rich and his involvement with Wikileaks. (self.AskThe_Donald)".  "Pulitzer-Prize Winning Reporter: FBI Report Shows It Was Seth Rich – Not Russians – Who Gave DNC Emails to Wikileaks".  WikiLeaks tweet with link to the audio.  Note that Hersh accepts the robbery story, but says that the Rich-Wikileaks connection came out of the subsequent police investigation of Rich's computer (Hersh on Assange:  "I stay the fuck away from people like that", and other funny disparaging comments, especially on the NSA).

It sounds like Hersh is playing this down now - 'gossip':
"Butowsky says he became convinced that the FBI had a report concluding that Seth Rich's laptop showed he had had contacts with WikiLeaks after speaking to the legendary reporter Seymour Hersh, who was also investigating Rich's death. According to the transcripts in the lawsuit, Butowsky says Hersh had an FBI source who confirmed the report.

In an interview this week, Hersh sounds unconvinced.

"I hear gossip," Hersh tells NPR on Monday. "[Butowsky] took two and two and made 45 out of it.""
The big hurry in getting Wheeler to sue Fox probably relates to worries about this audio coming out.
