Kim Dotcom: "Let Me Assure You, The DNC Hack Wasn’t Even A Hack"

Kim Dotcom has once again chimed in on the DNC hack, following a Sunday morning tweet from President Trump clarifying his previous comments on Russian meddling in the 2016 election. 

In response, Dotcom tweeted "Let me assure you, the DNC hack wasn't even a hack. It was an insider with a memory stick. I know this because I know who did it and why," adding "Special Counsel Mueller is not interested in my evidence. My lawyers wrote to him twice. He never replied. 360 pounds!" alluding of course to Trump's "400 pound genius" comment. 

Dotcom's assertion is backed up by an analysis done last year by a researcher who goes by the name Forensicator, who determined that the DNC files were copied at 22.6 MB/s - a speed virtually impossible to achieve from halfway around the world, much less over a local network - yet a speed typical of file transfers to a memory stick.

The local transfer theory of course blows the Russian hacking narrative out of the water, lending credibility to the theory that the DNC "hack" was in fact an inside job, potentially implicating late DNC IT staffer, Seth Rich.

John Podesta's email was allegely successfully "hacked" (he fell victim to a phishing scam) in March 2016, while the DNC reported suspicious activity (the suspected Seth Rich file transfer) in late April, 2016 according to the Washington Post.

On May 18, 2017, Dotcom proposed that if Congress includes the Seth Rich investigation in their Russia probe, he would provide written testimony with evidence that Seth Rich was WikiLeaks' source.

On May 19 2017 Dotcom tweeted "I knew Seth Rich. I was involved"

Three days later, Dotcom again released a guarded statement saying "I KNOW THAT SETH RICH WAS INVOLVED IN THE DNC LEAK," adding:

"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."

Dotcom knew.

While one could simply write off Dotcom's claims as an attention seeking stunt, he made several comments and a series of tweets hinting at the upcoming email releases prior to both the WikiLeaks dumps as well as the publication of the hacked DNC emails to a website known as "DCLeaks." 

In a May 14, 2015 Bloomberg article entitled "Kim Dotcom: Julian Assange Will Be Hillary Clinton's Worst Nightmare In 2016": "I have to say it’s probably more Julian,” who threatens Hillary, Dotcom said. “But I’m aware of some of the things that are going to be roadblocks for her.”

Two days later, Dotcom tweeted this: 

Around two months later, Kim asks a provocative question

Two weeks after that, Dotcom then tweeted "Mishandling classified info is a crime. When Hillary's emails eventually pop up on the internet who's going to jail?" 

It should thus be fairly obvious to anyone that Dotcom was somehow involved, and therefore any evidence he claims to have, should be taken seriously as part of Mueller's investigation. Instead, as Dotcom tweeted, "Special Counsel Mueller is not interested in my evidence. My lawyers wrote to him twice. He never replied."

All fucking Kabuki.  All of it.

The Deep State (Oligarchs and the MIC) is totally fucking loving this:

they have Trump and the GOP giving them everything they ever wanted

and they have the optics and distraction of an "embattled" president

that claims to be against or a victim of the "deep state" and

a base that rally's, circles the wagons around him, and falls for the narrative.

Meanwhile they keep enacting

the most Pro Deep State/MIC/Police State/Zionist/Wall Street

agenda possible.  

And they call it #winning

You people are idiots. Seth Rich was murdered but not by some big DNC conspiracy. I don't even know what to say anymore. This place is such a bunch of dumbshits that will believe anything that confirms their wildest fantasies. Most of you don't even know what a low level staffer for a campaign does. This is a completely fabricated story and even Fox News pulled it back and that is saying something!

"This is a completely fabricated story and even Fox News pulled it back and that is saying something!"



I'm seeing a pattern here since I first grokked the 9/11 thing many years ago. That shills for the establishment almost never provide any sort of logical argument or facts.  It's just a stream of hyperbolic statements and ad hominem attacks against everyone who doesn't get in line.

Whereas the people who have a desire to get the truth more often present logical arguments cited with factsm sans the ad-hominem attacks.  

This asshole ^^^ is following the establishment troll training/programming perfectly [Clowns In America].  It may have shamed people into silence back in 2005, but it doesn't work any more.

So, I close with a hearty fuck off. When you get there, fuck off some more.

"Had to be a Russian mole with a computer stick.

MSM, DNC and Muller say so."

----They know exactly who it was with the memory stick, there is always video of one form or another either in the data center or near the premises that can indicate who it was. They either have a video of Seth Rich putting the stick into the server directly, or they at least have a video of his car entering and leaving the vicinity of the ex-filtration.

This would have been an open and shut case if shillary was not involved. Since it was involved, you can all chalk it up to the clinton body count. I pray that it gets justice. It and the country, the world - needs justice.

There are so many nuances to this and all are getting mentioned but the one that also stands out is that in an age of demands for gun control by the Dems, Seth Rich is never, ever mentioned.  He should be the poster child for gun control.  Young man, draped in a American flag, helping democracy, gunned writes itself.  

They either are afraid of the possible racial issues should it turn out to be a black man killing a white man (but why should that matter in a gun control debate?) or they just don't want people looking at this case.  I go for #2.
