Well this is just getting nuts now.
From Yahoo News:
The lawyer for a Washington private investigator who is suing Fox News over its use of allegedly invented quotes in a news story advancing a bizarre conspiracy theory said Tuesday he will seek to depose President Trump and former White House press secretary Sean Spicer to question them over their roles in the affair.
“We’re going to litigate this case as we would any other,” and that means “we’ll want to depose anyone who has information,” including the president, said attorney Douglas Wigdor, who is representing the investigator, Rod Wheeler.
The lawsuit was filed in a New York federal court on Tuesday against Fox News, one of its reporters, Malia Zimmerman, and Ed Butowsky, a Dallas-based financier who has often appeared as a commentator on Fox News and allegedly worked with Zimmerman on a story about the death of former DNC staffer Seth Rich.
According to the lawsuit, which was first reported by National Public Radio’s David Folkenflik, Butowsky on his own hired Wheeler, a former Washington, D.C., homicide detective, to investigate Rich’s murder. The 27-year-old Rich was shot on a Washington street one night last July in what police believe was a botched robbery.
I don’t think it would surprise anyone to discover that Fox News colluded with the Trump administration to mislead people on fake news. I mean, they kinda do it out in the open every day. But still, to do it in this crazy conspiracy theory just makes it even more crazy.
Here’s more about the lawsuit:
For what it’s worth, I noted that the Fox News’ story quoting Wheeler had nothing to do with all the video of him talking about the case and it made me very suspicious about the story. But why did it take so long for Wheeler to admit that they made up quotes? The whole thing is incredibly strange…
