Nobody can state categorically who killed Seth Rich.
However, Kim Dotcom isn’t part of any conspiracy theory.
He accurately predicted Julian Assange would publish material considered to be “Hillary Clinton’s worst nightmare” in a 2015 Bloomberg interview. Kim Dotcom’s words are forever archived in Bloomberg piece titled Kim Dotcom: Julian Assange Will Be Hillary Clinton’s Worst Nightmar...
Here is the Bloomberg video.
Would The Washington Post’s Dave Weigel accuse Bloomberg of being part of a Seth Rich conspiracy theory, simply because it interviewed Kim Dotcom years before the Russian hacking narrative?
Because I respect The Huffington Post, I’ll keep this piece short, and to the point; nobody is claiming anyone caused the death of Seth Rich.
On the other hand, more information on Seth Rich’s death is needed.
If indeed Seth Rich was the WikiLeaks source, we need to know, or at least evaluate added evidence. It’s unheard of to simply disregard new evidence, or prevent a witness from testifying under oath, even in “botched robbery” cases.
Here are the specific claims made by Kim Dotcom, found at Kim.com:
I KNOW THAT SETH RICH WASINVOLVED IN THE DNC LEAK.
I know this because in late 2014 a person contacted me about helping me to start a branch of the Internet Party in the United States. He called himself Panda. I now know that Panda was Seth Rich.
Panda advised me that he was working on voter analytics tools and other technologies that the Internet Party may find helpful.
I communicated with Panda on a number of topics including corruption and the influence of corporate money in politics.
“He wanted to change that from the inside.”
I was referring to what I knew when I did an interview with Bloomberg in New Zealand in May 2015. In that interview I hinted that Julian Assange and Wikileaks would release information about Hillary Clinton in the upcoming election.
The Rich family has reached out to me to ask that I be sensitive to their loss in my public comments. That request is entirely reasonable.
I have consulted with my lawyers. I accept that my full statement should be provided to the authorities and I am prepared to do that so that there can be a full investigation. My lawyers will speak with the authorities regarding the proper process.
If my evidence is required to be given in the United States I would be prepared to do so if appropriate arrangements are made. I would need a guarantee from Special Counsel Mueller, on behalf of the United States, of safe passage from New Zealand to the United States and back. In the coming days we will be communicating with the appropriate authorities to make the necessary arrangements. In the meantime, I will make no further comment.
Again, I’m not claiming anyone in particular killed Seth Rich.
What I’m saying is new evidence, or the possibility of new evidence is vital to finding out what happened to Seth Rich.
If you have a problem with this sentiment, yet eagerly await Lo
uise Mensch’s latest breakthrough on hearsay about Trump, then you’re open to circumstantial evidence; just not on topics that don’t bolster your political bias.
In addition, Kim Dotcom isn’t willing to provide merely hearsay or circumstantial evidence, but has spoken to a legal team and is ready to testify under oath.
Why is this blasphemy to CNN and The Washington Post? What are they afraid of?
A true conspiracy theory is the belief that a botched robbery with little evidence surrounding the case should remain shrouded with questions, without any chance at further evidence.
America, and in my humble view anyone who wants more information on Seth Rich’s death, has nothing to lose and everything to gain from Kim Dotcom testifying in Congress under oath.
