Michael Moore Launches Trump-Focused Website for Whistleblowers

Jun 6, 2017  •  Post A Comment

Documentary filmmaker Michael Moore today launched a secure website that he says will enable “courageous whistleblowers” to take action that Moore says is necessary to protect the country from tyranny under Donald Trump. Moore calls the site “TrumpiLeaks.”

“This site provides the most high-powered encryption technology to enable courageous whistleblowers to privately communicate with me and my team,” Moore says on the site. “Patriotic Americans in government, law enforcement or the private sector with knowledge of the crimes, lies and general misconduct committed by Donald J. Trump and his associates are encouraged to blow the whistle in the name of protecting the United States of America from tyranny.”

Moore explained his reasoning in a letter published by The Huffington Post, writing: “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. And by firing Sally Yates, Preet Bharara and James Comey (3 federal officials with SOME authority to hold him accountable) he’s taken the first few steps to make it official.”

Moore’s letter adds: “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.”

Newsweek reports: “Through TrumpiLeaks, potential whistleblowers can almost entirely securely send documents, photographs, videos and audio recordings. Moore cautions that not all information is 100 percent secure, but also says his team uses the most high-powered encryption technology to protect users’ anonymity.”

Moore, who predicted Trump’s victory over Hillary Clinton in the presidential election, released his first film about Trump, “Michael Moore in Trumpland,” last year.

“In May, Bob and Harvey Weinstein announced they had teamed up with Moore to release a new film, titled ‘Fahrenheit 11/9,’ which refers to the day Trump officially was declared the 45th U.S. president,” Newsweek notes. “He thinks his movie will make the difference in bringing down Trump, who has been able to dodge scandal after scandal.”

Newsweek adds: “Moore’s launch came a day after a government contractor was charged with leaking classified information to a news outlet. The U.S. Department of Justice said the worker, Reality Winner, allegedly mailed classified government documents to The Intercept.”


  1. What would the reaction have been if this same type of Anti-President web site had been launched against Obama? I’m all for Trump being monitored to make sure he doesn’t do anything illegal but what I can see this becoming is anyone with an anti-Trump feeling putting marginally-believable-but-actually-a-lie things on this web site and the mainstream media repeating the story without doing any fact checking. It has already happened many times so far in Trump’s term and I don’t expect it to stop. The general attitude of anti-Trump people seems to be “accuse first, we can always retract later (on page 7 that no one reads)”

  2. Michael Moore is a gas bag whose fifteen minutes of fame ended long ago….
