DNC on White House Conspiring on False Story About Seth Rich

DNC Communications Director Xochitl Hinojosa released the following statement regarding allegations that the White House conspired with Fox News to concoct a false story about the death of Seth Rich, a former DNC staffer:

“If these allegations are true, it is beyond vile that the White House – and possibly even Trump himself – would use the murder of a young man to distract the public’s attention from their chaotic administration and Trump’s ties to Russia. The Rich family has begged those responsible for these conspiracies to stop. And yet, Trump’s allies have ignored their pain and their pleas, degrading the office of the president by spreading repulsive lies.

“This should outrage any decent human being. There is no excuse for the suffering that Trump’s associates and their conspirators at FOX have caused the Rich family and those closest to him. Both parties should denounce these sick and twisted tactics.”
