Megaupload founder Kim Dotcom has revealed that Vice President for the United States, Joe Biden, was the driving force behind the closure of Megaupload.
Dotcom’s associates searched the publicly available White House visitor logs and found that meetings between Biden and MPAA chief Chris Dodd (also a close friend of Biden) had taken place.
What they found was a meeting at the White House on July 27, 2011 that included Barry Meyer, CEO of Warner Bros Entertainment; Brad Grey, CEO of Paramount Pictures; Chris Dodd, CEO of the MPAA; Jeff Blake, Vice Chairman of Sony Pictures Entertainment; Ronald Meyer, President Universal Studios; Michael O’Leary, MPAA Senior Executive Vice President for Global Policy and External Affairs; Rich Ross, Chairman of Walt Disney Studios at the time; andMichael Ellis, Managing Director MPA Asia Pacific, who is, according to Dotcom, “an extradition expert and former superintendent of the Hong Kong police.”
Ellis was said to have met with Simon Power, New Zealand’s former justice minister, prior to Dotcom’s mansion being raided.
Dotcom hasn’t revealed who his source is, or how that source knows that Joe Biden ordered US State attorney Neil MacBride to go after Megaupload.
Dotcom is currently on bail after his arrest in January, although he must remain within 80 km of his home in Coatesville, New Zealand.
