Right-wing conspiracy theorist Jerome Corsi officially retired on Monday and apologized for an InfoWars article written in 2018 stating that during the 2016 elections, the murdered Democratic National Committee was Seth Rich (and his brother Aaron Rich) flooded DNC emails with Wikileaks.
"Dr. Corsi admits that his claims were not based on independent factual knowledge of Seth or Aaron Rich. The website claimed that Corsi's false claims were a Washington Times column for retired Adm. James Lyons, who also retired at the end of last year.
“It was not Dr. Corsi's intention to rely on inaccurate information or cause suffering to Mr. Rich's family. – To do this, Dr. Corsi withdraws the article and apologizes to the rich family.
Corsi also echoed the Rich family apology in his personal Twitter account. – Like Christians, gentleman[[[[Sic]I give sympathy to the suffering of the Seth Rich family. I hope everyone will understand. God bless you," wroteas he goes out of his way to note that the followers of several conspirators were not "threatening" to retreat.
Aaron Rich's lawyer said CNN the withdrawal was "an important step towards the family's justice." "We're still trying to judge our honest claims against conspiracy theorists who refuse to withdraw and apologize for similar false claims," the statement says.
The article was one of Alex Jones's far-right conspiracy website describing Seth Rich as a supporter of Bernie Sanders, who released DNC's e-mails to Wikileaks, against guilt against the Hillary Clinton support committee. Corsi wrote that Rich was the "likely perpetrator" of the leak because he was "involved in breaking email systems" and was killed to be delivered to the site.
The Daily Beast, previously announced by Corsi, acknowledged the fact that hackers – not Rich – were behind the leak of DNC in August 2016 and sent emails to a friend and long-lasting Trump, Roger Stone, who was blocked by justice, the manipulation of the witness and the lie to the House Intelligence Committee on the communication between Wikileaks and Trump.
Corsi's original article, "Anti-Trump Left Tries to Revive Dying," Russia's "Blaming Roger Stone Story," is now redirecting InfoWars' withdrawal and apology. However, despite the fact that all three parts of the Corsi's "test series" came into right-wing conspiracy theory, including "Seth Rich Mystery: DNC Leaks Came from Inside, Not Russian Hackers" and "New Evidence suggests, Seth Rich DNC Leaker – held on the InfoWars website.
