Whether you love him or hate him, John McAfee is one of the biggest names in crypto. The Bitcoin millionaire is now on the run from the US law for tax evasion and with this, he is constantly taunting the the government and he has even warned them to leave him alone or he will ‘bury’ them.
Over the weekend, McAfee went on a Twitter rant and claimed that the Department of Justice is compiling an unlawful case against him for money-laundering, extortion/coercion and even murder.
McAfee has warned that if the authorities don’t leave him alone, he’ll reveal information that shows mass corruption across the government.
“From friends in the State Department: The DOJ trumped up charges against me for murder, money laundering and racketeering…A conspiracy is unfolding. Proof coming.”
“I’ve collected files on corruption in governments. For the first time, I’m naming names and specifics. I’ll begin with a corrupt CIA agent and two Bahamian officials…If I’m arrested or disappear, 31+ terabytes of incriminating data will be released to the press.”
McAfee has told the authorities that he wants them to leave him alone. McAfee posted the tweets whilst in his yacht in Cuba.
“Leave me…alone, or go down with the corruption you have embraced, because I will…bury you if you continue. Doubt me at your own…risk.”
Like a lot of Bitcoin enthusiasts, McAfee is a libertarian who believes in small government, unfettered political freedom and personal autonomy.
That being said, he is still running for the presidency. But it is unclear as to how McAfee plans to be left in isolation whilst also wanting to lead a country.
The slogan for his campaign is an unusual one, “Don’t vote McAfee.”
Reverse psychology is known to work in some cases I suppose…
Free from Govt Control
McAfee in persistent that any politician who claims they have answers to the United States problems.
“Do not ask me about immigration, foreign relations, education etc. I have no idea. Those claiming that they do are lying to themselves, or if not, they are purposely lying to you.”
McAfee’s main goal though is to “be free. Freedom for The People is my only goal.”
