The lawsuit against Foxclaims news reporter Malia Zimmerman and financier and regular guest commentator Ed Butowsky worked together on a story about the death of former Democratic National Committee (DNC) staffer Seth Rich. Rich's family has pushed back against suggestions of politically motivated foul play, saying he was most likely the victim of a failed robbery attempt. Spurred on by WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange's suggestions in August 2016 that Rich might have been the source of the data to WikiLeaks not the Russians, conspiracy theories grew about the connection. "And it has been so depressing to have to watch as these poor people are tortured over and over and over again every few months as a different weird story has arisen".
Police believe Rich was killed one night in July of past year in a botched robbery attempt. Butowsky, a contributor at Fox News, has convinced the Rich family to hire Wheeler to investigate the murder of their 27-year-old son.
A lawsuit filed Tuesday alleges Fox News conspired with White House to push out the conspiracy in an effort to detract from the ongoing investigation into the Donald Trump campaign's ties to Russian Federation.

Butowsky admitted he and Wheeler met with Sean Spicer before the story ran, but insisted the trio only discussed where the former White House press secretary buys his t-shirts.
At Tuesday's White House briefing, incoming press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanderssaid the president "had no knowledge of the story" despite Butowsky's claim in emails to Wheeler that he had kept Trump in the loop. He said that Fox News reporter Malia Zimmerman and wealthy Republican donor Ed Butowsky faked his quotes.
"I've never talked to President Trump in my life", Butowsky said, denying that the White House had "anything to do with any of this".

"Ed Butowsky had an opportunity to look the American people in the eye and the Seth Rich family in the eye and say, you know what, six months after I reached out to you, knowing what I know now, I can not believe I put you in this position, and I am so, so sorry." said Bauman.
The second read: "My investigation shows someone within the D.C. government, Democratic National Committee or Clinton team is blocking the murder investigation from going forward". It just won't stop. "That is unfortunate. Seth Rich's murder is unsolved as a result of that".
