The MSM went into overdrive Tuesday when it was announced that Fox News was being sued by Rod Wheeler, a Fox News contributor and former homicide detective hired to investigate the killing of DNC operative Seth Rich.
Wheeler claims that the White House had worked together with Fox News and a wealthy GOP donor named Ed Butowsky in order to create a fake news story about the DNC leaks. Wheeler furthermore goes on to say that Butowsky, together with Fox News reporter Malia Zimmerman, fabricated fake quotes associated to him in order to further the Seth Rich narrative. According to the lawsuit, Wheeler claims that he has suffered permanent damage to his reputation and that his career has been ruined as a result.
But Wheeler had been an ardent supporter of Wikileaks and the investigation into Seth Rich’s murder for a while, raising questions about his sudden about-face.
On May 16, for example, Wheeler went onto New York Fox station Fox5 to say the police investigating the murder into Seth Rich were, for reasons unknown, told to stand down. On that very same day, Wheeler went onto Hannity and repeated the same story.
Even more damning, Wheeler’s Twitter account shows further proof that he clearly supported Wikileaks and the Seth Rich story.
Wheeler did an interview on the Youtube channel FYNTV, discussing the ongoing investigation into Imran Awan, a former employee who was on the payroll of former DNC chair and Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz.
Wheeler goes on to say Awan is allegedly connected with the murder of Seth Rich and that we should expect possible search warrants and arrests in the coming weeks.
Follow the arrest of Awan closely. Connect the dots to "other" cases. (hint, hint) Just the beginning. Stay tuned.

So it’s strange that Wheeler, who wanted to pursue an investigation into Rich’s murder, would suddenly turn around and claim that all of his quotes were fabricated and that he indeed found nothing.
If there was nothing, why did Wheeler continue to heavily promote the story and continue to do interviews related to it until very recently?

Wheeler said he had tried to review Rich’s laptop, but neither the D.C. police or FBI would allow him: “I believe that the answer to solving his death lies on that computer.”
Is Wheeler is trying to cover his tracks and throw away all of his credibility? Was he merely acting opportunistically? Is he being threatened or is something more sinister going on?
