Wheeler alleges that he never made the following quotes and asked them to be withdrawn from the following article before publication.
"My investigation up to this point shows there was some degree of email exchange between Seth Rich and WikiLeaks."
"My investigation shows someone within the D.C. government, Democratic National Committee or Clinton team is blocking the murder investigation from going forward. That is unfortunate. Seth Rich's murder is unsolved as a result of that."
They were not withdrawn from the article (link below) and were published.
If he made them, Fox should have no trouble finding audio of him saying them.
What appears clear is that Wheeler played along with the story but had qualms of conscience afterwards and has now come clean that it was was all bunkum.
His own reputation is in tatters but hopefully he completely brings down the reputation of Fox, Hannity and Trump, if that were even possible, as the reputations of all are so low that they can hardly be brought down any lower than already are.
