The former antivirus tycoon and cryptocurrency advocate and potential 2020 US presidential candidate, John McAfee, is allegedly on the run to conduct his 2020 presidential campaign.

He is fleeing the US after the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) charged him, his wife and his presidential campaign team with tax felonies. McAfee admits that he has not paid taxes or filed returns for the past eight years. He shared the news with his Twitter followers via a short video clip.

“Today, Jan. 22, the IRS has convened a grand jury in the state of Tennessee to charge myself, my wife, Mrs. McAfee, four of my campaign workers with unspecified IRS crimes of a felonious nature. They want to silence me. I will not allow that.”

McAfee said he will continue to be on the run on his boat and he plans to release campaign videos every day while in exile. He says as long as he’s on the run he cannot be officially charged by the tax agency.

“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. Why? I am a flight risk. Obviously, I am in flight…”

The infamous cryptocurrency proponent has been known for being brutally honest and makes statements about digital currencies nearly every day. McAfee’s video also refers to prior statements concerning taxation such as the first week of January when he told his 890,000 Twitter followers that he refuses to pay taxes to the government.

The candidate also said he was a prime target for the IRS and seemingly dared the agency to come after him by saying “here I am.” McAfee further stated that taxation is illegal and he’s “paid tens of millions already and received jack shit in services.”
