A private investigator and Fox News contributor is now filing a lawsuit claiming that quotes he put in a story, which were retracted, were fabricated.

According to The Hill, the story about slain DNC staff member Seth Rich was read by President Trump beforehand because it was requested by the White House.

The lawsuit was filed by Rod Wheeler, a former homicide detective that investigated Rich’s death and acted as a contributor for the publication.

In the lawsuit it said, “Fox News was working with the Trump administration to disseminate fake news in order to distract the public from Russia’s alleged attempts to influence our Country’s presidential election.”

The alleged retraction is still being investigated, but there is no evidence that these events really happened.

Wheeler used to appear frequently as a guest on Fox News, but after this story was brought to some people’s attention he had lost some of his credibility.

He is seeking damages for not only mental anguish, but for the money he lost at his private investigation firm.
