Convinced that, if not already then imminently, Donald Trump will violate the American constitution, obstruct justice, lie to Americans and/or encourage and support acts of violence (such things that could land an ordinary person in jail), activist and documentary producer Michael Moore wants the American president to know that he in fact is not 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,” said Moore in early June.
Moore fears the damage to the world that would be caused if Trump were to remain in the White House for two terms – until January 20, 2025. His four-part strategy to confront Trump is, “1) Mass citizen action; 2) Run candidates who can win; 3) Tie him up with court orders and injunctions; and, my personal favorite – 4) Form an Army of Satirists with the belief that we can bring him down with humor, comedy and ridicule – simply because his awfully thin skin just can’t take it.”
Item 4 for Moore begins with his own 12-week Broadway show, which will begin at the end of July. But, while such examples as Karen Silkwood, who fought for nuclear safety, Sherron Watkins, who exposed Enron’s accounting tricks, Jeffrey Wigand, who was integral in regulating tobacco companies, and more recently Chelsea Manning and Edward Snowden, Moore sees the need for avenues to enable would-be whistleblowers within and outside of the Trump administration.
To this end, Moore has created a page on his website called TrumpiLeaks, which offers ways to privately communicate with Moore and his team using high-powered encryption technology.
“I know this is risky,” says Moore, “I know 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.”
