Hacker Kim Dotcom revealed proof that Seth Rich was responsible for releasing the Democratic National Committee’s internal data in 2016, arguing the memory stick that was used proves it was an inside job.
Dotcom’s bombshell revelation came in response to a tweet from President Donald Trump on Sunday, who said he has always contended the alleged meddling in the 2016 presidential election could have come from anywhere.
Trump clarified previous remarks he made about Russia meddling, saying he previously said it could have been “Russia, or China or another country or group, or it may be a 400 pound genius sitting in bed and playing with his computer.”
I never said Russia did not meddle in the election, I said “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.” The Russian “hoax” was that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia – it never did!

Dotcom responded to Trump’s tweet by saying he was certain that the DNC wasn’t hacked by Russia or another foreign nation, but rather by an insider with access to the internal servers.
The famed hackers said “an insider with a memory stick” was responsible for the “hack,” adding that he notified Special Counsel Robert Mueller on two separate occasions about his evidence but he never replied.
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. 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

Dotcom has long claimed that the DNC internal documents and emails were copied onto a memory stick at a speed nearly impossible to accomplish from a location on the other side of the world.
He asserts that the Democrats claim that Russia hacked their server is not possible and is theory was corroborated by a researcher named Forensicator.
Forensicator conducted analysis last year on Dotcom’s claim about a DNC insider using a memory stick and found that the files were duplicated at a rate of 22.6 megabits per second.
Dotcom’s claim coupled with analysis verified by Forensicator reveals that it would be virtually impossible for hackers in Russia to hack the DNC’s servers using the memory stick.
The hacker claims that Rich, who was mysteriously shot and killed in July 2016 while walking home from a bar in Washington, is the insider who used the memory stick to copy the files and then handed them over to WikiLeaks.
Subsequently, WikiLeaks released all of the data, emails, and files that the DNC claimed were hacked.
If Rich was the insider who copied the DNC’s files with the memory stick and then gave it to WikiLeaks, it raises serious questions about his mysterious death.
