John McAfee Embarks on Self-Exile to Impede IRS Case Against Him, Wife and Multiple Team Members

McAfee embarks on Self-Exile to Impede IRS case against him

John McAfee, the antivirus pioneer who created the first commercial antivirus software, has revealed in a video that the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is after him. In a video posted on Twitter by his official handle, McAfee is sitting on a boat and speaking about “unspecified IRS crimes of a felonious nature” leveled against him. He also says that his wife and four of his campaign workers have also been charged.

McAfee, who also revealed that he hasn’t paid tax in eight years, said in the video that the IRS has “convened a grand jury in the state of McAfee” because of him.


John McAfee has said that he believes that at some point, cryptocurrency will “come head to head with governments.” He predicts that if coins are widely used, governments will no long be able to collect income taxes and this will eventually force them to shrink. This, he believes, will not go down lightly with the government and will cause a “war”.

Campaign Future

According to the video, John McAfee has imposed on himself, an exile on water at an unspecified location where he will continue to run his campaign about cryptocurrency and the government as he has been doing for about two years now.

He says “They want to silence me, I will not allow that. I am running my campaign in exile on this boat for the duration. I will not allow them to imprison me and shut my voice down which they will do immediately.”

He also promised to continue to put out more videos to keep the public updated of the state of his affairs and then ended the video by calling on the crypto community to inform them that they are at war with the government and he is at the frontlines.

At this time, no official comment from the IRS has been made.
