New Zealand-based hacker and political activist Kim Dotcom claims the
hacking of the Democratic National Committee in 2016 was an inside job.
If that’s true, it could blow the case of the mysterious murder of
former DNC staffer Seth Rich wide open.
It all began Sunday when President Donald Trump explained on Twitter
that he had never denied the possibility of Russia meddling in the 2016
presidential election, saying at one point that “it may be Russia, or
China or another country or group, or it may be a 400 pound genius
sitting in bed and playing with his computer.”
In response to that tweet, Dotcom tweeted that the DNC was hacked by
“an insider with a memory stick,” adding, “Special Counsel Mueller is
not interested in my evidence. My lawyers wrote to him twice. He never
replied.” See his response below:
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. Special
Counsel Mueller is not interested in my evidence. My lawyers wrote to
him twice. He never replied. 360 pounds! https://t.co/AGRO0sFx7s https://t.co/epXtv0t1uN

data and transferred the files to a memory stick at a rate that could
only be achieved by someone in close proximity to the DNC office
Dotcom’s claim was validated by analysis conducted last year by a researcher named Forensicator, who determined the DNC files were copied at a rate of 22.6 megabits per second.
He claims it wouldn’t be possible for someone on the other side of globe to copy network files that quickly. As noted by WND,
Dotcom’s explosive statement coupled with analysis from Forensicator
lends credibility to the theory that Rich was involved, to an extent, in
Rich was shot and killed in July of 2016 while walking home at night in Washington, D.C. Police ruled it was a failed robbery attempt,
but conspiracies have circulated that he was murdered for giving the
hacked DNC files to WikiLeaks, which released emails from the DNC during
the 2016 presidential election.
presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign chairman John
Podesta reported in March 2016 that his email was “hacked,” and his
emails were released by WikiLeaks, according to The Washington Post.
There’s certainly some evidence that lends credibility to the theory that Rich was the individual who leaked the files to WikiLeaks. If Rich was responsible for “hacking” the DNC, that would also expose the Democrats’ claim that the Russians hacked their servers and cost them the election.
