Judge Orders Feds To Provide Index Of Seth Rich Laptop — Judge Amos L. Mazzant of the U.S. District Court of the Eastern District of Texas, yesterday, Nov. 28, ordered the FBI to produce a Vaughn index relating to Seth Rich’s laptop and other items sought in a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request by Brian Huddleston of Texas.
A Vaughn Index is a document prepared by agencies that are opposing the disclosure of information under FOIA. The index must describe what has been withheld and provide a detailed justification the for non-disclosure. The term originates from the case of Vaughn v. Rosen.
Mazzant, an Obama appointee, ordered the FBI, Sept. 29, 2022, to produce the contents of Rich’s personal laptop. The Feds dithered, though, and asked for clarification.
So yesterday, the clarification came.
Rich was shot about 4:30 a.m., July 10,2016 in the gentrified Bloomingdale neighborhood of Washington D.C. He was taken alive to Medstar Hospital where he died.
Robbery was said to have been the motive but nothing had been stolen
The feds confiscated his laptop and other devices, though. They have refused to divulge their contents despite rampant conspiracy theories that have developed surrounding them, which they could have easily ended.
Rich, 27, was techie who worked for the Democrat National Committee. He is considered by some as the source of the emails from prominent Democrats such as Hillary Clinton and John Podesta published Wikileaks shortly before the national convention in which Mrs. Clinton was nominated for president.
The emails embarrassed Mrs. Clinton also spawned the “Pizzagate” scandal as Podesta used “pizza” in several emails in ways peculiar to the context of the messages.
Pizza is used as a code word by pedophiles.
