The Oscar winner penned a letter in the Huffington Post, saying he created the site with the goal to end Trump’s presidency before 2025.
“Patriotic Americans in government, law enforcement or the private sector with knowledge of crimes, breaches of public trust and misconduct committed by Donald J. Trump and his associates are needed to blow the whistle in the name of protecting the United States of America from tyranny,” Moore wrote.
The documentary filmmaker asks, “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?”
Moore wrote that “we need a four-front strategy to end this carnage” and outlined the steps in order: “1. Mass Citizen Action 2. Take Him To Court Nonstop 3. YOU Run for Office 4. An Army of Satire.”
Moore said he was inspired to launch TrumpiLeaks after coming across old video of a Vice President Mike Pence testifying about the importance of whistleblowers.
He claims the site has tools to send secure information, including documents, photographs and recordings, but stressed that “no form of digital communication is 100 percent secure.”
“I know this is risky. I knew we may get in trouble. But too much is at stake to play it safe. And along with the Founding Fathers, I’ve got your back,” Moore wrote.
Moore is also currently at work on his new documentary, “Fahrenheit 11/9.” The title refers to the day Trump was declared president of the United States.
“No matter what you throw at him, it hasn’t worked,” Moore said of Trump when the project was announced in May. “No matter what is revealed, he remains standing. Facts, reality, brains cannot defeat him. Even when he commits a self-inflicted wound, he gets up the next morning and keeps going and tweeting. That all ends with this movie.”
