Republican Representative Blake Farenthold of Texas suggested on Wednesday (24 May) that the 2016 Democratic National Committee hack could have been an “insider job”, citing “stuff circulating on the internet”. Last year, whistleblowing outfit WikiLeaks leaked thousands of embarrassing internal emails from top Democratic officials. Earlier this week, Fox News retracted a story that fuelled a conspiracy theory linking the murder of Seth Rich, a DNC staff member in Washington DC in July last year, to the leaking of Clinton campaign emails to WikiLeaks. The outlet determined that the story did not live up to its editorial standards.
