Documentary filmmaker Michael Moore has created a website called “Trumpileaks” to enable whistleblowers to securely share information from the Trump administration.
Mr Moore’s launch of his website comes a day after the Justice Department charged a government contractor with leaking classified information to the news media, the first criminal leak case under President Donald Trump.
Reality Leigh Winner reportedly sent a top secret National Security Agency report to The Intercept that described two cyberattacks by Russia’s military intelligence unit, including one against a company that sells voter registration-related software.
The NSA has said that the report was submitted anonymously.
Mr Moore, an outspoken critic of Donald Trump, wrote in a letter published by the Huffington Post that “patriotic Americans in government, law enforcement or the private sector with knowledge of crimes, breaches of public trust and misconduct committed by Donald J Trump and his associates are needed to blow the whistle in the name of protecting the United States of America from tyranny.”
His website features encrypted messaging apps such as Signal and Peerio for leakers to send information digitally. Individuals can also send information by mail or can email him.
