The Seth Rich murder investigation has been brought back into the spotlight in recent weeks as multiple sources have stated that he was leaking information about the DNC to Wikileaks, which Internet entrepreneur Kim Dotcom just dropped a major bombshell about.
In a written statement on his website, Dotcom revealed that he knew Rich ever since 2014, when a web user by the name of “Panda” reached out to him. Panda, Dotcom revealed, was actually Rich using a pseudonym to protect himself, and he wanted to expose the deep corruption within the Democrat Party so he coordinated with Dotcom to get information to Wikileaks.
This is heavy stuff.
Below is Dotcom’s statement in full:
I KNOW THAT SETCH 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.
After releasing his statement, Dotcom tweeted the following about Rich:

If Dotcom does indeed have evidence that Rich was the leaker of the DNC emails, it would turn our political world upside down as the Great Russian Ruse was exposed as a fraud and a major political party was implicated in the murder of one of its staffers.
Stay tuned, folks. Despite the media’s best efforts to bury this story, it’s not going away any time soon. The DNC should be shaking in their boots right now.
