Liberal Hollywood filmmaker Michael Moore has launched a new website encouraging members of the Trump administration and sources close to the White House to leak sensitive information.

TrumpiLeaks,” which launched Monday, offers several encrypted messaging options for users to send their information without fear of getting caught.

“Welcome to TrumpiLeaks. This site provides the most high-powered encryption technology to enable courageous whistleblowers to privately communicate with me and my team,” Moore wrote on the website. “Patriotic Americans in government, law enforcement or the private sector with knowledge of the crimes, lies and general misconduct committed by Donald J. Trump and his associates are encouraged to blow the whistle in the name of protecting the United States of America from tyranny.”

Moore doubled down on his belief that the leak of information from the White House is merely patriotism in action.

“I need one of you to help me. It might get dangerous. It may get us in trouble. But we’re running out of time. We must act. It’s our patriotic duty,” he said.

“From the time you opened this letter to the time you get to the bottom of it, there’s a decent chance that our President will have violated the constitution, obstructed justice, lied to the American people, encouraged or supported acts of violence, or committed some horrible mistake that would’ve ended any other politician’s career (or sent you or I to jail),” Moore continued. “And just like all the times he’s done so in the past, he will get away with it.”

Moore gives users the option of using secure messaging sites like WhatsApp, Peerio, and Signal to send information, and even lists an encryption code for those wishing to send the information through encrypted email. Users who aren’t concerned with anonymity can send information to Moore’s standard email address, or through the U.S. Postal Srvice.

“I know this is risky. I knew we may get in trouble. But too much is at stake to play it safe. And along with the Founding Fathers, I’ve got your back,” Moore wrote.

The launch of TrumpiLeaks came only one day after 25-year-old government contractor Reality Leigh Winner was arrested and charged with leaking top secret classified materials to a news outlet.
