Kim Dotcom: 'I Knew Seth Rich. I Know He Was the Wikileaks Source'
Infamous internet entrepreneur/hacker Kim Dotcom has offered to give the United States Congress "written testimony with evidence that Seth Rich was Wikileaks source" -- if Congress agrees to include the Seth Rich case in their Russia probe.
Seth Rich is the Democratic National Committee staffer who was gunned down in Northwest D.C. near his home last July. Police have called it a "botched robbery," but -- curiously -- nothing was stolen from him, including "his wallet, cell phone, keys, watch or necklace worth about $2,000."
On July 22, just twelve days after Rich was murdered, WikiLeaks published emails that prompted the resignation of Debbie Wasserman Schultz from her role as DNC chairperson on the eve of the Democratic National Convention. WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has insisted all along that the DNC emails were not hacked by the Russians, and he has implied that Rich was indeed the source of the emails. On August 9, WikiLeaks offered a $20,000 reward for information on the murdered DNC staffer.
The founder of Megaupload.com and Mega.co.nz on Saturday claimed that he knows Seth Rich was the source of the DNC email leaks because he himself was involved.
Dotcom said that he would be meeting with his legal team on Monday and would issue a statement on the matter on Tuesday.
Fox News host Sean Hannity expressed interest in having Kim Dotcom on his Fox News radio and television shows this week.
Dotcom also pointed to a reddit thread where users claim to have discovered the social media accounts and email addresses of Seth Rich.
