John McAfee, the founder of the antivirus software company who ran for president as a Libertarian in 2016 and is running again independently in 2020, has been charged with unspecified crimes by the IRS, as of this January.

The fugitive and aspiring president spoke with The Daily Caller in an exclusive interview from Exuma in the Bahamas. He discussed his tax trouble and his plans to expose the unidentified creator of Bitcoin, Satoshi Nakamoto.

He has been a noted promoter of cryptocurrencies, and not just Bitcoin. His former company, MGT Capital, was also hit with a class-action lawsuit last year, following an SEC investigation into alleged “pumping and dumping” scheme to boost its stock price.
