Sean Hannity On Seth Rich: “For Now, I Am Not Discussing The Matter At This Time”

Sean Hannity has been determined to uncover the truth regarding the Seth Rich murder investigation. Seth Rich met his untimely demise last year just outside his home in D.C. with many calling his death suspicious. Hannity’s investigation has met resistance at every turn but so far that hasn’t stopped him from seeking the truth, until just last night…

Up until last evening, Hannity was determined to get to the bottom of Seth Rich’s suspicious death, but something changed. Hannity was all set to make a major announcement that had many giddy with anticipation that some new evidence has come to light. Instead, it appears somebody got to Hannity and forced his mouth shut. It’s a far cry from his earlier statements regarding the whole ordeal.

On his radio show, Hannity said he would not stop questioning the death, despite the fact that on Tuesday, Fox News retracted the report he based his commentary on.

“All you in the liberal media, I am not Fox.com or FoxNews.com. I retracted nothing,” Hannity said.

During his radio broadcast, Hannity said he feels “badly” for Rich’s family and what they have been through. Although the Rich family doesn’t agree with reports that Rich worked with WikiLeaks, Hannity has refused to back down from the report.

On Tuesday, Hannity tweeted, “I said publicly over and over to the Rich family they are in my thoughts and prayers. I’m trying to find the truth as the Mom Dad bro asked.”

On his radio broadcast, Hannity said the issue is too big now to let it go. “This issue is so big now, that the entire Russia collusion narrative is hanging by a thread if, in fact — take Seth out of it — there was a whistleblower within the DNC, a truth teller, that actually was the source for WikiLeaks and not Russia working with the Trump campaign,” Hannity said.

Hannity continued:

“These are questions I have the moral obligation to ask. And I will do the mainstream media’s job like I have done for most of my career like we got it right on Obama, his radicalism, his record, on Trump having a chance to win, on Michael Brown, on Trayvon Martin, on Cambridge police, on Baltimore. We’re right, they’re wrong.”

Hannity points followers to Megaupload founder Kim Dotcom in multiple tweets. “Dotcom” is attempting to uncover information on the Rich case.

In his most recent tweet, Hannity said he would have a major announcement regarding Rich, as well as his own future at Fox. The tweet read: “Huge announcement tonight about Seth Rich, Trump/Russian Collusion corrupt media, the liberal effort to silence me. And my future at Fox!”

Then things took a strange turn. While most expected a big break in the case, Hannity gave the complete opposite answer than anyone was hoping for.

 The “big announcement” audiences tuned in to hear on Tuesday night concerning the Seth Rich case turned out to be nothing more than Sean Hannity telling his Fox News viewers that he would stop talking about the murder of the DNC staffer who is believed by many to be the source of the emails sent to WikiLeaks.

In his statement last night, Hannity explained how there is a push to stop his advertisers from supporting the TV show in the same way they alienated Bill O’Reilly’s.   He went on to say the family reached out to him directly and asked he stop investigating the murder.

Hannity said it was his heartfelt communications with Seth Rich’s brother Arron, that led him to decide it was best to “let the story go” for now, but that his team will continue to hunt for the truth.  He did not specify how “his team” will search for the truth, but audiences shouldn’t expect much considering Hannity’s “team” is a group of producers responsible for building a TV show each night.  In other words, Hannity is letting the story slide into the abyss.

Are you disappointed that Hannity is dropping his investigation? After all, if Seth Rich was murdered for attempting to expose the truth, the same could happen to anyone getting too close to the truth. One way or another this is not over, even if Sean Hannity is throwing in the towel. There are plenty of truth seekers out there. The question is whether or not we will ever know the full truth.
