SEAN HANNITY (HOST): Also tonight, the unsolved murder of former DNC staffer Seth Rich continues to get a huge amount of attention. Now, I want to say something. I totally, completely understand how upset, how hard this is on this family, especially over the recent coverage of Seth's death. Now, I have been communicating with them. I got a very heartfelt note. I also sent them a heartfelt note back. I reached out personally today to Seth's brother, Aaron. I expressed my condolences over how hard , how difficult this has been for him and his family.

[...]

However, out of respect for the family's wishes -- for now -- I am not discussing this matter at this time.
