MUST READ: Seth Rich Family AND Defendants REQUEST TESTIMONY From Julian Assange — But Podesta-Linked Judge Richard Leon REFUSES

Judge Richard Leon and John Podesta

Over the weekend Judge Richard Leon in Washington D.C. ordered investigative reporter Matt Couch to release all of his confidential materials to the lawyers for Aaron Rich.

Aaron Rich, the brother of Seth Rich is suing Matt Couch for his reporting on Seth who was murdered in the summer of 2016. Seth worked for the DNC at the time.

Judge Richard J. Leon, is a longtime colleague and Georgetown Law School co-lecturer with John Podesta.  He is also linked to Fusion GPS.

Matt Couch is probably going to file a motion to recuse Leon.

Now get this…
In a bizarre twist, Aaron Rich and the defendants JOINTLY asked Judge Leon to help arrange the deposition of Julian Assange in England.

Julian Assange is the main source who can testify how Wikileaks obtained the Podesta emails during the 2016 election.

But in a weird twist, according to our sources, Judge Leon arbitrarily refused the request — even though BOTH PARTIES requested the deposition.

This is unheard of!  It is unique in a situation where ALL PARTIES  agree that they need the testimony of a particular witness, but the judge blocks it WITHOUT EXPLANATION!
