Kim Dotcom: U.S. government officials used Megaupload Kim Dotcom claims U.S. government officials had Megaupload accounts.
He told TorrentFreak that those who used Megaupload included members of the United States Senate, and the Department of Justice (DoJ). He is currently out on bail, despite FBI protests, and is fighting in New Zealand courts against extradition to the United States.

"Guess what ? we found a large number of Mega accounts from US Government officials including the Department of Justice and the US Senate," Kim told TorrentFreak. "I hope we will soon have permission to give them and the rest of our users access to their files."

He told TorrentFreak that his main concern now was that users get back access to their own data. "Megaupload's legal team is working hard to reunite our users with their data," Dotcom said. "We are negotiating with the Department of Justice to allow all Mega users to retrieve their data."

The Electronic Frontier Foundation has pledged to help legitimate users of MegaUpload retrieve their data.
