Exclusive: The true origins of the Seth Rich conspiracy theory. A Yahoo News investigation.

WASHINGTON — In the summer of 2016, Russian intelligence agents secretly planted a fake report claiming that Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich was gunned down by a squad of assassins working for Hillary Clinton, giving rise to a notorious conspiracy theory that captivated conservative activists and was later promoted from inside President Trump’s White House, a Yahoo News investigation has found.

'Never Trump' group planning $40 million war chest for fall campaign

A group of “Never Trump” Republicans has lined up “some large financial backers” and is planning on spending up to $40 million to help defeat President Trump and elect a Democratic Senate this fall, one of the organization’s top strategists said. John Weaver, once a senior adviser to Sen. John McCain, declined to identify the major donors who have agreed to help bankroll his anti-Trump Republican group, the Lincoln Project. But in an interview on the Weaver said the group has formed a super-PAC — thereby allowing it to collect donations unlimited in size — and is developing grassroots...
