by Sharon Rondeau
His tweet on Tuesday repeated one issued by Dotcom on Monday night.
Rich was known to have dressed up in a panda suit on occasion. “His nickname was Panda,” Dotcom had tweeted.
“I was there,” Dotcom added.
Dotcom resides in New Zealand and is currently under house arrest as a result of a case brought against him by the U.S. Department of Justice alleging copyright infringement by means of a file-sharing website Dotcom had established in 2005.
Dotcom has been fighting a request from the U.S. for his extradition. In February, a New Zealand court ruled against him, but he mounted an appeal.
On Saturday, Dotcom had tweeted that he would be meeting with his attorneys on Monday and would be making a statement on the Rich case on Tuesday. On Sunday, Hannity announced that he would be hosting Dotcom on his show, presumably in the near future, and directed his followers to follow Dotcom regarding new developments in the Rich case.
Reactions from the political left have been virulent.
As of 12:26 PM EDT, no news has yet been released on Dotcom’s Twitter feed, which also appears on his website, kim.com.
