Special counsel Robert Mueller’s report said WikiLeaks pushed conspiracies about slain Democratic National Committee (DNC) staffer Seth Rich to obfuscate the source of the hacked DNC emails it published in 2016.
“As reports attributing the DNC and [Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee] hacks to the Russian government emerged, WikiLeaks and [Julian] Assange made several public statements apparently designed to obscure the source of the materials that WikiLeaks was releasing,” the report said.
“The file-transfer evidence described above and other information uncovered during the investigation discredit WikiLeaks’s claims about the source of material that it posted,” it continued. The report described a file transfer between the Russian GRU and WikiLeaks.
The report said that statements by WikiLeaks and Assange about Rich “implied falsely that he had been the source of the stolen DNC emails.”
