Megaupload founder Kim Dotcom, who currently stands accused by the US of copyright infringement and racketeering, told TorrentFreak that he has insider information implicating none other than Vice President of the United States Joe Biden in ordering the shutdown of Megaupload.

Dotcom said the information from his unnamed source led his associates to search the publicly available White House visitor logs to find meetings between Biden and MPAA chief Chris Dodd, apparently a close friend of the vice president.

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; and Michael Ellis, Managing Director MPA Asia Pacific, who is, according to Dotcom, “an extradition expert and former superintendent of the Hong Kong police.”

According to the New Zealand Herald, Simon Power, the country’s former justice minister, met with Ellis in March 2011. Power is rumored to have known about the raid on Dotcom’s mansion, and in July 2011 Power is said to have declined Dotcom’s application to buy the mansion he was renting, even after “[o]fficials at Immigration NZ and the Overseas Investment Office investigated Megaupload, raising no concerns about its operation,” the Herald reported. “They also investigated Dotcom’s wealth, saying it had been earned legitimately.”

Still, 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. As the New Zealand Herald points out, this announcement is just days ahead of the expected release of Dotcom’s first music single “Mr. President,” which “is about the shutdown of his website and is directly aimed at US President Barack Obama,” the Herald notes.

The calculated press leak is also timed with his court appearance for judicial review into an order that the FBI show evidence against him for an August 6 extradition hearing.

“At the appropriate time we will release what we know,” Dotcom told TorrentFreak. “The whole Mega case is quite the political thriller.”
