Kim Dotcom says Hillary Clinton should fear Wikileaks’ Julian Assange
What is he talking about?
Megaupload founder Kim Dotcom boldly and vaguely declared that WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange would be Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton‘s “worst nightmare” during the 2016 election.
Dotcom didn’t offer specifics in his interview with Bloomberg, but he did say he was “aware of some of the things that will be roadblocks for her.”
Assange “has access to information,” Dotcom said, calling Clinton an “adversary of Internet freedom.”
“You know the crazy thing?” Dotcom continued. “I actually like Hillary, I like Obama. It’s just so crazy that all of this happened.”
Assange has not commented directly on Dotcom’s promise-by-proxy, but the Wikileaks Twitter account—widely rumored to be run by Assange—did tweet links to the Bloomberg interview, and the tweets are being interpreted as an endorsement of the promise.
“I like these guys,” Dotcom said, referring to Assange, who for three years has hidden from Swedish and U.S. law enforcement in the Ecuadorian embassy in London. “I think they’re very brave and they’re going through a very hard time.”
“They chose to [do] that for the betterment for all of us, so yeah, I love to talk to them,” Dotcom added.
