Wheeler'slawsuitclaims he and Butowsky met with then-White House press secretary Sean Spicer in April, supposedly to keep him updated on the investigation. Jay Wallace, Fox's president of news, told NPR there was no "concrete evidence" that Wheeler was misquoted. The suit also alleges Butowsky left a message on Wheeler's phone, insisting "we have the full, uh, attention of the White House, on this".

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanderssaid Tuesday that Trump had "no knowledge" of the Fox story, and called it "completely untrue" that the White House helped develop it. Spicer admitted to a brief meeting but also denied any White House role, The Washington Postreported. Wheeler's lawsuit, however, states that Bukowski, the third party, sent Wheeler five text messages and one voice mail in the three day period ending on the Hannity interview. "Zimmerman, Butowsky and Fox had created fake news to advance President Trump's agenda".
Washington's Metropolitan Police Department is investigating the July 2016 fatal shooting of 27-year-old Rich, saying there is evidence to suggest the murder took place during a botched robbery. "But you can feel free to say that the White House is onto this now". Butowsky said they ultimately talked more about shirts than Seth Rich.
However, Wheeler's lawsuit alleges that the Fox reporter behind the story, Malia Zimmerman, fabricated these quotes in her story. Wheeler doesn't find much, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation says they're not investigating the case as they're leaving it to Metro D.C. police, which seemingly blows up the idea that there's some Federal Bureau of Investigation report that connects Rich to the leaks. Days later, Fox Newsretracted it.
Butowsky did not immediately comment to CNBC for this article. The email from Butowsky told Steve Doocy, Ainsley Earhardt and Brian Kilmeade to contact him directly if they have any questions about Zimmerman's story hours before it was published.
Wheeler said he provided some quotes to Fox based on what Butowsky and Zimmerman had told him. Wigdor said this would include the president and Spicer. "There's nothing truthful here at all", Butowsky said. "We were basically telling him you are doing a great job and that the president or the White House or somebody would be interested in meeting you".
