Get used to Orange Kim

Kim Dotcom has managed to catch the eye of Fox News’ Sean Hannity — one of Donald Trump’s favourite broadcasters — with his claims over the unsolved murder of Democratic national committee IT staffer Seth Rich.

Mr Rich was shot in the back near his home in Washington DC last year.

DC police have yet to solve his murder. His family believe it was a robbery gone wrong.

Since his murder, there have been conspiracy theories that Mr Rich was killed because he was the source of DNC emails supplied to Wikileaks, not Russian operatives as FBI investigations have suggested. The proposition is that he was killed in a cover-up.

Enter Kim Dotcom, who this weekend tweeted “If Congress includes #SethRich case into their Russia probe, I’ll give written testimony with evidence that Seth Rich was @Wikileaks source” and “I knew Seth Rich. I know he was the @Wikileaks source. I was involved.”

To back up his claims, Dotcom linked to a May 2015 story in which he predicted Julian Assange would cause “roadblocks” for Hillary Clinton. Assuming it’s true, Mr Dotcom has a line of communication with Wikileaks, does he have proof Mr Rich was the source of the DNC emails?

Surprisingly, Mr Hannity jumped into Twitter to ask Mr Dotcom just that, tweeting the accused German pirate ” You are the evidence? Can you explain that in more detail?”

Mr Dotcom came back with the rather un-promising “I am the evidence.”

He then said he would consult his lawyers on Monday before making a statement on Tuesday.

He might need time to construct another email like he did for this Big Reveal.  I suspect it will be a lot more sophisticated this time.

But Hannity should insist on a personal in-studio appearance.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
