Infamous hacker Kit Dotcom, who is living in New Zealand, has entered the Seth Rich story. Seth Rich is the DNC staffer who was the victim of an unsolved murder two years ago. It was labeled a robbery. Mr. Rich has been singled out as the person who leaked the DNC files to Wikileaks.
Kit Dotcom was for a while the #1 ranked Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 player in the world and claims to be the key to the mystery.
Kit Dotcom’s real name is Kim Schmitz and he is wanted by the FBI, the Justice Department, and Hollywood.
Accused of creating a medium where independent users of his site could upload, share and distribute files such as Hollywood movies, Dotcom can’t leave New Zealand.
Kit Dotcom tweeted Tuesday afternoon after promising more evidence today though he didn’t come through with any evidence.

The following statement, completely devoid of evidence, was posted on the Kim.com website. He does say he has been contacted by Seth Rich’s family.
I KNOW THAT SETH RICH WAS INVOLVED 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.
One other interesting fact is that John Podesta’s wife Heather Podesta sits on the police Washington D.C. Police Foundation board. Did she influence the investigation?
Donna Brazile, then-DNC chair, called the police to ask why Rod Wheeler was asking questions about Seth Rich, according to Rod Wheeler.
Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch is investigating the issue.
