John McAfee’s New Brilliant Plan? Head Back To The USA
Now that John McAfee’s request for political asylum in Guatemala was rejected, the once internet entrepeneur has a new plan: Return to the United States.
“America is my home. It’s where I was raised,” he said last night during an online press conference. “I simply would like to live comfortably, day by day, fish, swim, enjoy my declining years.” For now, he is appealing Guatemala’s rejection, USA Today reports. That means it will be at least 30 days before he can be extradited back to Belize, where he is wanted for questioning in the murder of a neighbor
McAfee also took the opportunity to deny any wrongdoing: “Let me be clear: I had absolutely nothing to do with the murder,” he said. He believes the Belize government is actually upset with him because he has publicly accused it of corruption. “The issues I’m discussing are hurting the government, hurting tourism,” he said. “There is no hope for my life if I ever return to Belize.” As for his recent hospital stay, he said he was simply lightheaded due to dehydration and a lack of food, and passed out. “I am fine now,” he said.
