Website Collecting Money To Fund Assassinations Of Trump, Pence Disclosed On “Dark Web”
Someone has reportedly set up a Dark Web website to raise money and collect expert advice to help fund the assassination of President-elect Donald Trump and Vice-President-elect Mike Pence. The website is located on the Dark Web, and can be accessed only using the Tor browser, which masks IP addresses.
According to multiple reports, the clearly illegal website which “went live” last week, consists of a single HTML file, and an image of President-elect Trump in the crosshair of a scope, with the website asking for donations in order to fund the assassination attempt.
“As you are all well aware, the consequences of having Donald Trump and Mike Pence as the leaders of the free world is extremely dangerous,” the website reads. “The political, environmental and social consequences will change the United States for the worst.
Pointing to the “rise of several white supremacist movements like the KKK and the neo-nazis,” the site promoting assassination says “trying to eliminate other Americans of different origins cannot be tolerated.”
“We, as a society have come too far to go back to this,” it adds.
The site’s authors claim they are part of a “well-known organization that has always defended and protected the rights of all people against crooked governments and regimes using different cyber attacks.”
It says it now needs to go further, “as it will require much more than cyber attack to defend ourselves to avoid civil war or another world war.”
We have several assets in different branches of government, security and even some working in secret services,” it claims. “Unfortunately, the plan we need to implement requires a lot of money to pay for equipment, bribes and also to pay those assets.”
The site asks for anonymous donations from those who “wish to see our plan succeed” and asks those with “expertise, intelligence or contacts you consider relevant,” to get in touch.
The Bitcoin wallet associated with the site has managed to amass $88,000 in their bitcoin wallet since March. However, since the website has only been live for about a week, donations believed to be related to the assassination fundraising only amount to $119, CSO reports.
According to the website’s source code, at least one hacker has reportedly claimed that they know the identity of the creator of the controversial site. The hacker has claimed that the person behind the Dark Web Trump-Pence threat is a “scammer” and a Canadian citizen, but did not disclose more information about the person’s alleged identity.
“I actually planned to send an email to the United States Secret Service about him, but I can’t find an appropriate email address of the USSS,” the hacker said.
It’s understood that the Trump-Pence assassination Dark Web fundraising campaign and website information have been reported to the Secret Service.
