The House Committee on Energy and Commerce wanted to speak with John McAfee, the technology pioneer who last year fled a murder investigation in Belize, as part of their investigation into the flawed ObamaCare website,according to emails obtained by CNBC.
Sean Hayes, who serves as counsel for the committee, apparently reached out to Francois Garcia, an attorney for McAfee last week.
"Given the failures of Healthcare.gov, and Mr. McAfee’s expertise, I was hoping he might be able to discuss his views with staff on the hill," Hayes wrote, according to the CNBC emails. "It would be an informal discussion: we would take notes but these would not be for attribution, it would mainly guide our oversight and review of the program."
Credibility, you’re doing it wrong.

John McAfee explains how to uninstall McAfee Antivirus, reminding you throughout the process that an eccentric millionaire who is a total heathen originally created the software, and that total heathen has nothing to do with the product anymore and hasn’t for 15 years.

John McAfee’s hopes of fighting deportation back to Belize to face questions about the murder of a neighbor faded on Thursday after Guatemala denied a request by the U.S. software pioneer for asylum.
McAfee’s lawyer vowed to block Guatemalan efforts to remove the entrepreneur and said the 67-year-old had suffered two mild heart attacks early on Thursday. McAfee was not taken to a hospital and posted on his blog during the morning hours.
"I don’t think a heart attack prevents one from using one’s blog," said the lawyer, Telesforo Guerra.
The Belizean government continues to insist that John McAfee is not a prime suspect in the murder of Gregory Faull; however, he is still wanted for questioning. An international arrest warrant has not been issued for John McAfee at this time, though he is likely to be turned over to law enforcement officials in Belize if he is deported.
