Kim Dotcom, Seth Rich and Why It Matters

On July 10, 2016 Seth Rich was shot to death from behind and died. We do not know why he was shot; but, the police said they suspect robbery. This is odd because nothing was stolen, not his very expensive watch nor his wallet or money. It is possible that this was a robbery; but, as of today we do not know the motive. According to reports he was shot in the back twice at 4:19 in the morning while talking to his girlfriend on the phone after having left a bar at 1:30. Okay, the bar was 1.8 miles from his house, where was he for those two hours? We don't know. Why was he calling his girlfriend at four in the morning, we don't know.

Seth Rich worked for the Democratic National Committee and was the Director of Voter Expansion Data. He was a systems person with a high clearance in the DNC. On August 9, 2016 WikiLeaks offered a $20,000 reward for the capture of his killer(s). Julian Assange, head of WikiLeaks, stated at the time that :

Julian Assange: Whistleblowers go to significant efforts to get us material and often very significant risks. As a 27 year-old, works for the DNC, was shot in the back, murdered just a few weeks ago for unknown reasons as he was walking down the street in Washington.
Reporter: That was just a robbery, I believe. Wasn’t it?
Julian Assange: No. There’s no finding. So… I’m suggesting that our sources take risks.

On October 7, 2016 WikiLeaks began publishing what became known as the "Podesta E-mails". Nobody knew what was in the e-mails until WikiLeaks began publishing them. Assange implied Seth Rich was the leaker in August two months before they released anything.

At NO point in time has Assange publicly stated that Seth Rich was the leaker of the e-mails; but, at no point in time has he denied Seth Rich was the leaker. WikiLeaks does not make claims they cannot prove and never has. We do not know why Seth Rich was killed and it may have been a robbery; but, we have a lot of reasons to believe that Seth Rich was the leaker of the Podesta e-mails. Those are two different issues and we should not confuse them.

Now we get to Kim Dotcom. He is the founder of a couple of internet companies that allow people to share information privately. He is worth hundreds of millions. His site allowed people to send mail to one another without being read by the government. I think the post office used to do the same thing, except now letting people converse anonymously is thought a crime, private conversations are thought a crime. The United Sates government wanted to jail Kim Dotcom for letting people talk in private, where the government couldn't read their conversations. Get it?

On May 22, 2017 Kim Dotcom stated that he could prove that Seth Rich was the person who provided the Podesta e-mails to WikiLeaks. A couple of days later he said that he would provide testimony to congress if they would promise that he could go home, New Zealand, afterword's. The place he is now. I present facts, not opinions.

Assume Seth Rich was killed in a botched robbery, assume blaming Hillary is political. Kim Dotcom has said he will tell what he knows on the condition he can go home. Why wouldn't you want to hear what he has to say? Watch the news and see if they ask him to come here and testify or if they don't want to know his answers.

Let the police determine who killed Seth Rich, give them time. Pastor Daniels case has not been answered yet. Ask for evidence, not theories. The question of whether or not Seth Rich was the person responsible for releasing the Podesta emails is a different one. Why is that a question the corporate media and the government do not want discussed?

I have told my readers to be careful what they post and to not post speculation. I have told my readers that I will not post accusations regarding the Pastor Carol Daniels case and to send them to the OSBI. Why would the government not want to hear what Kim Dotcom has to say about WikiLeaks and they got their information? I am pretty sure that an active investigation into how WikiLeaks got the emails from Podesta is going on. Why wouldn't they want to hear him when it costs them nothing, he did not ask for immunity.  They don't want to hear what he has to say. Why not? What are they afraid of him saying? It is not about Seth, it is not about Kim, it is not about the election, it is about the DNC.
