Kim Dotcom Disappoints: Offers Full Seth Rich Testimony But Only To Special Counsel Mueller

Tyler Durden's picture

As promised over the weekend, Kim Dotcom has delivered his official 'statement' on the Seth Rich murder.  Unfortunately, it's a bit light on the details and more of a teaser along with a promise to disclose full details of his relationship with Seth Rich to Special Counsel Mueller in return for safe passage to and from the United States.


Here is the full statement as posted to Kim Dotcom's website:

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.

Early reaction from the Twittersphere is disappointment:


Meanwhile, after Fox News originally reported that anonymous FBI sources had confirmed to them that Seth Rich was WikiLeaks' source for the DNC leaks, they have just published the following retraction saying the article "was not initially subjected to the high degree of editorial scrutiny we require for all our reporting."

"On May 16, a story was posted on the Fox News website on the investigation into the 2016 murder of DNC staffer Seth Rich.  The article was not initially subjected to the high degree of editorial scrutiny we require for all our reporting. Upon appropriate review, the article was found not to meet those standards and has since been removed.


We will continue to investigate this story and will provide updates as warranted."


Of course, one can only wonder how many MSNBC, CNN, Washington Post and New York Times articles would have to be retracted if they were subjected to the same level of "editorial scrutiny."

* * *

For those who missed it, here is some background on the lead up to today's Kim Dotcom announcement:

Last week, Fox News dropped a bombshell report officially confirming, via anonymous FBI sources, what many had suspected for quite some time, that murdered DNC staffer Seth Rich was the WikiLeaks source for leaks which proved that the DNC was intentionally undermining the campaign of Bernie Sanders. In addition to exposing the corruption of the DNC, the leaks cost Debbie Wasserman Shcultz her job as Chairwoman.

Of course, if it's true that WikiLeaks' emails came from a DNC insider it would end the "Russian hacking" narrative that has been perpetuated by Democrats and the mainstream media for the past several months.  Moreover, it would corroborate the one confirmation that Julian Assange has offered regarding his source, namely that it was "not a state actor."

Meanwhile, the plot thickened a little more over the weekend when Kim Dotcom confirmed via Twitter that he was working with Seth Rich to get leaked emails to WikiLeaks.


Which was followed up by the following posts on 4Chan’s /pol/ subgroup that high-ranking current and former Democratic Party officials are terrified of the Seth Rich murder investigation.

“Anons, I work in D.C.


I know for certain that the Seth Rich case has scared the shit out of certain high ranking current and former Democratic Party officials.


This is the reason why they have backed away from impeachment talk. They know the smoking gun is out there, and they’re terrified you will find it, because when you do it will bring the entire DNC, along with a couple of very big name politicians.


It appears that certain DNC thugs were not thorough enough when it came time to cover their tracks. Podesta saying he wanted to “make an example of the leaker” is a huge smoking gun.”

The post went on to claim that a "smoking gun in this case is out of the hands of the conspirators" which has resulted in near "open panic" in DC circles.

“The behavior is near open panic. To even mention this name in D.C. Circles [sic] will bring you under automatic scrutiny. To even admit that you have knowledge of this story puts you in immediate danger.


If there was no smoke there would be no fire. I have never, in my 20 years of working in D.C. Seen [sic] such a panicked reaction from anyone.


I have strong reason to believe that the smoking gun in this case is out o [sic] the hands of the conspirators, and will be discovered by anon. I know for certain that Podesta is deeply concerned. He’s been receiving anonymous calls and emails from people saying they know the truth. Same with Hillary.”

And here is the original tweet:


Meanwhile, Kim Dotcom has promised more information will be released on his interaction with Seth Rich by tomorrow.


This raises several questions.  First, if Kim Dotcom knew that Seth Rich was, in fact, the WikiLeaks source, why is he just now coming forward with such information?  Second, while Seth Rich may explain the DNC leaks we still don't know who is responsible for the "Podesta Files" which we're certain will continue to be attributed to "Russian hackers."

Which leads to the most improtant queistion of all: is this all just another fake news diversion, or is there more to the Seth Rich murder?

Depends on who is providing the "safe passage" now doesn't it?

Seth IS Kim!

Seriously though, dont forget that Craig Murray, the former British Ambassador to Uzbekistan, claimed that he met the DNC leaker personally in DC and transported the files to the U.K. and ultimately to Wikileaks.

See here.

They don't give a rats ass about getting to the truth.  I am questioning if Trump even wants to get it.  He is just effin lazy wanting the investigation being called off.  Trump should be going scortched earth on everyones ass and doing his own investigation.  Last I heard Trump is Sessions boss and he can order any investigation he wants.  Why not investigate Seth Rich, etc.

Fatso here just trying to use Seth Rich for his advantage.

How much ZH is willing to pay this guy? Money talks.

Meanwhile, Fox News just retracted its original Seth Rich/Wikileaks story.  Too bad the conspiracy theory ship has sailed.  I guess ZH doesn't find that news click-bait worthy.

Yeah, like they can afford to pay an investigative reporter. Obviously they can't even hire an editor. Tough when ya mortgage a mini mansion or two in California's semi-dorment volcanic mudslide region. Then the taxes and the insurance. This is their 2007 moment, sell or die on a hot flaming stick! They would actually be better off in Birmingham at this point, probably better internet connection.

Craig Murray, ex UK ambassador, said he came to DC and personally met with a DNC insider and recieved the emails and took them back to Europe to wikileaks. Why doesn't anyone interview him.

Fake Trump's picture

Trump prefers to have himself investigated by Mueller.

I'm trying to nest this as close to the top as possible, I hate this fucking format. Anyway, looks like Donna Brazile was trying to stop the investigation into Seth's murder.

Perhaps Seth Rich's familly had to choose between silver or lead.

It's not like either of them will announce that investigation.
For that matter, how can those two announce any investigation ... any more than is strictly required by law.

All these people asking "Why only come forward now?"

Its because the identity of the leaker wasn't important, the leak was!  Until the propaganda media decided to commit 100% to 'it was the Russians' narrative, then the identity of the leaker did become important!  Even then, waiting was a good way to make the media 'show their hand', and now it can be turned on them, big time.

He just emerged from Hillary's cunt.

Not quite. Kim only knew him by his screen name. When the weaponized autists finally found and dumped Seth Rich's social media accounts recently it became apparent to Kim to whom he had actually been talking.

I don't really know this guy. Do you? If indeed he is a citizen from somewhere trying to leak something from New Zealand to the USA, I would imagine I would do something like that, especially with the uncertainty involved. Assange spent 5 years in the Ecuadorian ambasseodores hut ( I think that is how they pronounce it). Even McStain is not calling for DotKim's head on a platter yet. He could still just dump the information on the internet, but he says he want's to testify personally. I can wait, and apparently Seth can too.

@ KimDotCom:

"The Rich family": Did they PERSONALLY ask you, or was it done by that Bauman creep?

Difference being, a legit request, versus a veiled threat.

That was the plan, all done by design, all done by agenda from an Intelligence Perspective.

The Art of PsyOp is based on Scripting the Perfect False Narrative which will illicit a unknowingly Bias response.

Blur all Irrefutable Fact & make it all False by rewriting history. Didn't Karl Rove say there're "Histories Actors."

In essence, he was admitting to the PsyOps via the Presstitute's "Fake News."

“We’re an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you’re studying that reality – judiciously, as you will – we’ll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that’s how things will sort out. We’re history’s actors . . . and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do.” (Ron Suskind, NYTimes Magazine, Oct. 17, 2004).

> We’re history’s actors ... just study what we do.

He's right - they're ALL just actors, from Hollywood to D.C.:

When was the last time you heard a preacher preach about God sending a delusion: See below

The Wizard's picture

The mindfuck you refer to is a delusion. People prefer fantasy land rather than truth.

We call fiat “money” debt instruments, Federal Reserve Notes, dollars and money. Doesn’t “money” need to be something of substance on the asset side of the ledger? Isn’t the term dollar defined in the Constitution as so many grains of silver against a 16:1 ratio to gold?  It helps confirm we are living in a delusion; “reality” is a delusion whereby the delusion has become reality. What is true is not necessarily truth. An illusion brought on by deception (illusion + deception) is a delusion. The government and its courts claim that “policy” is the law and policy should be observed as the law. This policy is better known as color of law. And who are the “colored”? It is the sheople who are in a deep slumber, God’s people are lost, in that they don’t know who they are in the history of the Scriptures. The reason God sends the delusion is because we want it, it is our consent to a corrupt world.

Below excerpt from:

THE WAY I SEE IT, it’s all a con game,” Cody Lundin was saying. “What I mean is that Wall Street has always been an illusion. Now it’s an illusion that’s crumbling. Wall Street is like someone who’s having heart trouble. It’s in constant need of resuscitation, but after a while, it just doesn’t work anymore. People think that Bernard Madoff was unique, that he was an illusion, but he’s just an extension of the same illusion, the same con game. This is one of the reasons I don’t like to have any debt. When you have debt, you become part of this illusion, and sometimes you get trapped by it.

2 Thes 2:1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto Him,

2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.

3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.

5 Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?

6 And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.

7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.

8 And then shall that wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of His mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of His coming:

9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,

10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:

12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

13 But we are bound to give thanks always to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth:

14 Whereunto He called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.

15 Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle.

16 Now our Lord Jesus Christ Himself, and God, even our Father, which hath loved us, and hath given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace,

17 Comfort your hearts, and stablish you in every good word and work

Exactly right. This is a nesting doll collection of (probably) fake conspiracies, courtesy of Cass Sunstein & Co. Seth Rich, Pizzagate, Flat Earth, Hollow Earth, Antarctica, Reptilians, moon-as-spaceship, and so on and so on.

But what really sucks is that the (probably) fake Pizzagate ploy helps hide the real global pedophile blackmail ring, Seth Rich really did get murdered by somebody (probably--unless it's all a fake), Eric Braverman is still missing, the Moon Landings never actually happened, and the planet has a slew of other secrets just waiting to be told.

Miss Kim no reason to down vote. First you fed his pie hole and second you never corrected him when he started telling stories. In essence, you down voted yourself.
