Transcript of the published Hersh audio on Seth Rich

{I have stripped out the redpilledworld comments, leaving only their transcription of Hersh along with their id of three people mentioned. However, I have written out the four-letter words so a reader can get a more realistic sense of the emotional tone of Hersh’s talk.}

I'll tell you what I know. All I know comes off an FBI report. Don't ask me how - you can figure out - you've been around long enough. I don't think he was murdered because of what he knew. The kid was not an IT expert, but he learned stuff. He was a data programmer, but he learned stuff.

He's living in a very rough neighborhood, and in the exact area where he lives - I'm sure you know - there's been about 8 or 9 or 10 violent robberies, most of them with somebody brandishing a gun. And the kid's hands - I'm sure you know - his hands are marked up, the cops included he fought off the people, tried to run and they shot him twice in the back with a .22 small caliber, and then the kids that did it ran - they got scared - didn't take his wallet.

Okay, so what the cops do then, and here's what nobody knows, what I'm telling you - or maybe you know something about it - when you have a death like that, DC cops, you have to get to the kid's apartment and see what you can find. If he's dead you don't need a warrant, but most cops get a warrant because they don't know if the guy has a room-mate. You need a warrant, so they get a warrant.

They go in the house, and they can't do much with his computer, it's password. The cops don't know much about it. So the DC cops, they have a cyber unit in DC and they're more sophisticated. They come and look at it. The idea is maybe he's had a series of exchanges with somebody who says 'I'm going to kill you, you mother fucker over a girl' or... And they can't get in. The cyber guys are a little better, but they can't make sense of it, so they call the FBI cyber unit. The DC unit, the Washington field office is a hot shit unit. The guy running the Washington field office, he's like a three star at an army base. he's ready for four. You know what I mean - he's gong to go for a top job. There's a cyber unit there that's excellent.

What you get in a warrant - the public information you get in a warrant - doesn't include the affidavit underlying why you're going in - what the reason was. That's almost never available. I can tell you that. The existence of a warrant is a public document 99% of the time.

So, and the same morning they call in the feds. The feds get through and here's what they find. This is according to the FBI report. What they find is he makes contact.

First of all, you have to know some basic facts. One of the basic facts is that there are no DNC or Podesta emails that exist beyond May 21st or 22nd, the last email from either one of those groups.

And so what the report says is that sometime in late spring/early summer, he makes contact with Wikileaks. That's in his computer, and he makes contact. Now, I have to be careful because I met Julian ten twelve years... I stay the fuck away from people like that. You know, he's invited me, when I'm in London I always get a message, "Come see me at the Ecuadorian embassy." Fuck you, I ain't going there. I got enough trouble without getting photographed. He's under total surveillance by everybody.

Anyway, they found what he had done. He had submitted a series of documents, of emails, some juicy emails from the DNC. And you know, by the way all this shit about the DNC, you know, whatever happened the democrats themselves wrote this shit, you know what I mean. All I know is that he offered a sample, an extensive sample, I'm sure dozens of emails, and said, "I want money."

Then later Wikileaks did get the password. He had a DropBox - a protected DropBox - which isn't hard to do. I mean you don't have to be an IT wizard. He was certainly, he was not a dumb kid.

They got access to the DropBox. He also - this is also in the FBI report - he also let people know with whom he was dealing. I don't know how he dealt with the Wikileaks and the mechanism but he also... The word was passed according to the NSA report, "I also shared this box with a couple of friends so if anything happens to me it's not going to solve your problems." Okay. I don't know what that means. I don't know whether he...

Anyway, Wikileaks got access, and before he was killed. I can tell you right now. Brennan's1 an asshole. I've known all these people for years. Clapper2 sort of a (illegible) guy but not a rocket scientist. The NSA guy's a fucking moron. And the trouble with all those guys is the only way they're going to make it to, you know, get hired by SAI (illegible) and delivered some fat cat contract is if Hillary stayed in. With Trump they're gone. They're done. They're going to live on they're pension. They're not going to make it. And I got to tell you, guys in that job, they don't want to live on their pension. They want to be on boards making six hundred thousand bucks.

I have somebody on the inside. I've been around a long time and I write a lot of stuff. I have somebody on the inside who will go and read a file for me. This person is unbelievably accurate and careful. He's a very high level guy. He'll do a favor. You're just going to have to trust me. I have what they call in my business, long form journalism, I have a narrative of how that whole fucking thing began.

It's a Brennan operation. It was an American disinformation operation fucking the fucking president. And at one point they even started telling the press, they were back-briefing the press, the head of the NSA was going and telling the press - fucking cocksucker Rogers3 - was telling the press that we even know who in the Russian military intelligence service leaked it. I mean all bullshit.

I worked for the New York Times for fucking years. The trouble with the New York Times is they have smart guys but they're totally beholden on sources. If the president or the head of the (illegible) told them something, they actually believe it. I was hired by the Times to write about, go after the war, the Vietnam war in 72, because they were just locked in, so that's what the Times is. These guys run the fucking Times.

And Trump's not wrong to... I mean I wish he would calm down and had a better Press Secretary. Trump's not wrong to think they all fucking lied about him."
