Two years ago, in a little noticed social media message to the world, Kim Dotcom, international hacker, founder of the defunct file sharing site Megaupload, fugitive, and political ally of Wikileaks’ Julian Assange, revealed that the Wikileaks founder would prove to be Hillary Clinton’s worst nightmare in 2016.
His comments foreshadowed Assange’s continued role in providing information that has stalled Clinton’s campaign at every turn.
Email hacks, exposed secrets, and even Clinton’s use of private email servers while she was Secretary of State have all cropped up in this election cycle.
In short, Assange has indeed become her worst nightmare – but from Kim Dotcom’s comments, it seems like there’s much more to come.
Here was Dotcom’s message to the world in 2014 (he initially said that he was her worst nightmare):
I'm not a pirate.
I'm not a fugitive.
I'm not a flight risk.
I'm your Internet Freedom fighter
Hillary's worst nightmare in 2016!
— Kim Dotcom (@KimDotcom) December 1, 2014
A Bloomberg News reporter followed up with Dotcom on it shortly thereafter, and he said it was more Assange that would be Hillary’s worst nightmare …
Kim Dotcom, the founder of the defunct file sharing site Megaupload who wants to bring his Internet Party to the United States in 2016, said Wikileaks founder Julian Assange will be Hillary Clinton’s “worst nightmare.”
In an interview with Emily Chang on Bloomberg’s Studio 1.0, Dotcom was asked about a tweet he sent in December saying that he himself will be “Hillary’s worst nightmare in 2016.”
The interview raises the question of the role hacking could play in an election involving someone as simultaneously high profile and secretive as Clinton.
“I have to say it’s probably more Julian,” who threatens Hillary, Dotcom said. “But I’m aware of some of the things that are going to be roadblocks for her.”
Assange has access to information, Dotcom said, though he added that he didn’t know anything more specific.
Assange has delivered revelation after revelation, not just about Clinton, but the entire Democrat Party as well.
Question is, what other revelations remain. What other nightmares will Hillary be subject to?
