John McAfee is a British-American computer programmer and businessman said that his life in threat and is on the run. He is claiming that U.S. government is chasing him out.

John McAfee posted a series of videos online on Tuesday which says that he is hiding because of the issues he faced with the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

He recently got involved with numerous cryptocurrency companies and promoted various ICO’s. he recently served with a subpoena by SEC in the year 2016.

"We are in a five-vehicle motorcade," Mr. McAfee told sources. "All vehicles driven by ex-military special forces and filled to the brim with heavily-armed security personnel.

"I purposely and publicly committed a felony this morning to call the SEC out [in the videos]. I'm mad as hell and I'm not taking any more s*** from corrupt-to-the-core government agencies."

John McAfee posted a video saying his problems with the SEC. He filmed the video from an unknown location and was filmed on Monday evening.

“The SEC was never intended to have this power, please God America, wake up and see what has happened,” He stated.

“The SEC is in charge of our entire industry, our companies, our manufacturing, our distribution, our creativity, our entrepreneurship. When it was created, in the wisdom of the creators, it had only civil powers. If it got p***ed off at you, it could sue you, end of story.

“Now, with the cooperation of the justice department, the SEC can get involved, or bring people in who can punish you beyond a civil suit. The SEC owns America, please God, wake up people. And if you think that an agency of the US government would not stoop to assassination, kidnapping, threats, then what are you smoking?”

According to sources, John McAfee mentioned his concerns and problems in an email sent to sources saying, “I know that I’m in the crosshairs of the SEC.”

Earlier he informed, a few years before about an attempt to kidnap him by violent cartels. Because of this reason, Mr. John McAfee lives with armed security guards at his heavily fortified home in Lexington, Tennessee.

He tweeted, "The SEC made us fear Ethereum because Bitcoin was so obviously just a currency and out of their realm. They want to crush crypto, so the only way to scare us is to frown at Ethereum. The legal field is clear: Fish will ride bicycles before Etheteum could be called a security."

Sources state that in an interview with his business associate Rob Loggia, Mr. McAfee said his public marketing and promoting of cryptocurrency has made him a target.

“The SEC wants to destroy a revolution – a movement of the people – by making an example out of me,” Mr. McAfee said. “I cannot allow that to happen."

He posted another video on Tuesday, in which he explained his views and opinions on the government agency.

“We have a pyramidal power system that is corrupt at the core,” Mr. McAfee said. “You think the SEC has no power, but every single major industry and business in America is under the thumb of the SEC.

“The SEC is one of the most powerful agencies in the world. It is out of hand, and it does not anymore represent American values or the American people.”
