Right-Wing Financial Adviser at the Center of Seth Rich-Fox News Lawsuit Deletes Twitter Account

Ed Butowsky, the Trump-supporting wealth manager at the heart of a bombshell lawsuit against Fox News, has deleted his Twitter account.

Don’t worry though, because we have the cached version of his account here.

Butowsky’s involvement in the explosive lawsuit comes from the fact that he bankrolled Fox News commentator and private investigator Rod Wheeler as he looked into the murder of Seth Rich. This was part of a ploy to give legitimacy to the unsubstantiated theories that Rich’s death was arranged by Hillary Clinton or the DNC over his connections to Wikileaks.

The lawsuit not only alleges that Wheeler worked with Fox’s Malia Zimmerman to provide the story with false information, but it also claims Butowsky arranged for Wheeler to inform the White House about their progress.

As the news continues to develop, Butowsky gave phone interviews with New York Magazine‘s Olivia Nuzzi and Vanity Fair‘s Gabriel Sherman.
