(ed: this is an excellent piece/example of evidence-based journalism – that on first read totally unpacks the rightwing-conspiracy-theory around the murder of dnc-staffer seth rich…
and then up pops kim dotcom..)
The story goes through nearly everyone in right-wing media.
May 19 is also when Megaupload founder Kim Dotcom inserted himself into the story.
Dotcom alleged that he had bombshell information on the case.
As Dotcom – who lives in New Zealand – is fighting extradition to the United States to avoid trial for charges including conspiracy to commit racketeering – nearly everyone on the planet saw through the ruse – save for Sean Hannity.
(ed:..my last reading was that dotcom is still claiming to have the ‘explosive evidence’ – and has passed it on to his lawyers..so still more to come..
and given dotcoms’ past record of claims of explosive-evidence that turned into a very public mass-anti-climax/no-show – (‘no headers on emails’ we are told/brushed away with..)..dotcom has surely put himself at some risk in going out on this limb..?
..he either will have the explosive-evidence/proof of his claims.
– or he will be two for two..)
