The Davis County Republican was in Washington, D.C., on Tuesday listening to Newt Gingrich, the former House Speaker/Presidential candidate/novelist discussing America's opioid epidemic when Weiler's got sucked into the latest Hannity-fueled nonsense about the Rich slaying.
In case you missed it, Rich was a 27-year-old staffer at the Democratic National Committee who was shot and killed on his way home last summer in what Washington police are calling a botched robbery.
Monday night, Weiler wondered aloud via Twitter about the Seth Rich conspiracy nonsense:
"I've never been much of a conspiracy theorist, but I'd be interested to find more about the death of Seth Rich."
Then it was during Gingrich's drug talk Tuesday morning — Gingrich was talking about drugs and not, we have to guess, on drugs when he was talking — that Weiler got called out for his Twitter speculation.
"If Seth Rich was murdered in a robbery gone wrong, why was his wallet, watch, and phone left behind?" Weiler said after being called out for feeding the conspiracy trolls.
Then followed it up with:
"??? Seth Rich:
1. If he was killed in a robbery, why wasn't he robbed?
2. If he was killed by a stray bullet, why was he shot twice?"
The insinuation, which has been fueled by right-wing media is that Rich was murdered by Democratic thugs for leaking DNC documents to Wikileaks. This was based on speculation from a third-rate private investigator who almost immediately recanted his story and said he was given the information by a Fox News reporter.
The retraction meant there was literally no evidence to support the story and Rich's family pleaded with the disgusting sex-freak Hannity, or his robot replacement, to drop the story, but Hannity kept going after it like he would Tinky Winky at a furry convention.
Weiler kept going at it too.
"And why was Seth Rich walking in a neighborhood 30 minutes away from his home — at 4:20 am?" Weiler asked as he was taking fire for regurgitating the nonsense.
"Just honest questions," he tweeted. "I'm not in with the conspiracy."
