Internet pioneer Kim Dotcom is boldly declaring that Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, should fear Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, during the 2016 U.S. presidential elections.

The big man from down under is an advocate of internet freedom. The founder of Megaupload believes his friend Julian Assange has damaging information that could put a spanner in Hillary’s presidential bid. During an interview with Emily Chang from Bloomberg aired on Thursday, he said he was “aware of some of the things that will be roadblocks for her.” Dotcom Calls Hillary Clinton an enemy of Internet freedom.

Daily Dot reports:

“You know the crazy thing?” Dotcom continued. “I actually like Hillary, I like OBAMA. It’s just so crazy that all of this happened.”

Assange has not commented directly on Dotcom’s promise-by-proxy, but the Wikileaks Twitter account—widely rumored to be run by Assange—did tweet links to the Bloomberg interview, and the tweets are being interpreted as an endorsement of the promise.

“I like these guys,” Dotcom said, referring to Assange, who for three years has hidden from Swedish and U.S. law enforcement in the Ecuadorian embassy in London. “I think they’re very brave and they’re going through a very hard time.”

“They chose to [do] that for the betterment for all of us, so yeah, I love to talk to them,” Dotcom added.
