TrumpiLeaks: Michael Moore launches whistleblowing website to oust president

TrumpiLeaks: Michael Moore launches whistleblowing website to oust president

Filmmaker Michael Moore is urging White House staff and members of law enforcement to leak information about misconduct in the US government to his new website TrumpiLeaks.

The website contains encrypted messaging services such as Signal, Peerio and WhatsApp for whistleblowers to pass on sensitive data or documents anonymously.

Moore, famous for political documentaries such as ‘Fahrenheit 9/11’ and ‘Bowling for Columbine’, has warned that leaking government information “might get dangerous.”

In a letter posted to the site, however, Moore said “we’re running out of time” to oust President Donald Trump from his position of power.

“From the time you opened this letter to the time you get to the bottom of it, there’s a decent chance that our president will have violated the constitution, obstructed justice, lied to the American people, encouraged or supported acts of violence, or committed some horrible mistake that would’ve ended any other politician's career (or sent you or I to jail),” Moore writes.

“Donald Trump thinks he’s above the law. He acts like he’s above the law. He’s stated that he’s above the law.

“Make no mistake – Donald J. Trump has no intention of leaving the White House until January 20, 2025. How old will you be in 2025? That’s how long he plans to be your president. How much damage will have been done to the country and the world by then? And that is why we must act,” Moore added.


TrumpiLeaks also includes an encrypted email address and PGP fingerprint for people to send information whilst obscuring their online identity. Moore advises people providing information via post to use “a mailbox rather than going into a post office.”
