Moby says the CIA asked him to use social media to spread the word about Trump and Russia
Hey, it's one way to promote a new album...
Moby caused a stir last February following the Presidential inauguration of Donald Trump when he claimed to have insider knowledge on links between the Trump administration and Russia.
The famed musician and producer took to Instagram to 'accurately' report the connection after talking to "friends in DC," remarking that "the Trump administration needs a war" among other fiery accusations.
Fast-forward a year later and Moby is once again making noise regarding the US government, this time declaring that the Central Intelligence Agency had requested his help with getting the word out there, figuring he's the man to do it considering his big social media following.
In conversation with radio DJ Kyle Meredith, Moby, who has a new album due this year, warned that things are "going to get a lot darker."
"[After] years of touring and spending time in DC and New York, I've managed to make a few friends in the intelligence community," he began, before noting that said friends - "active and former CIA agents" - were "truly concerned" about Trump.
"They're like, 'This is the Manchurian Candidate; we have a Russian agent as the President of the United States.'
"So, they passed on some information to me and said, 'Look, you have more of a social media following than any of us do, can you please post some of these things?' - just in a way to sort of put it out there."
He added, "It's really disturbing and it's going to get quite a lot darker, like the depths of the Trump family in business and their involvement with organised crime, sponsored terrorism, Russian oligarchs - it's really dark. I guess we should all fasten our seatbelts and hold on."
The juicy stuff starts around the eight-minute mark in the below clip.
