Former FIFA vice-president Jack Warner claims to have evidence linking FIFA officials and outgoing president Sepp Blatter to Trinidad and Tobago's general election in 2010.

Warner purchased time on one of the country's biggest television stations, CCN TV6, to reveal he has proof the world football governing body played a part in the election that brought the People’s Partnership coalition to power and subsequently saw Warner earn a senior position with the federal government.

In the eight-minute video entitled "The gloves are off," Warner also indicated he holds extensive evidence linking FIFA to numerous acts of corruption.

"Blatter knows why he fell. And if anyone else knows, I do," Warner said.

He also said he wrote to the Swiss international to ask for his immediate departure from FIFA following Blatter's announcement Tuesday that he will resign.

Warner, who was president of CONCACAF for 21 years and one of 14 people arrested during the U.S. Department of Justice's investigation into rampant corruption within FIFA , relayed an ominous warning to FIFA concerning the vast amounts of documents he submitted to his lawyers.

"Not even death will stop the avalanche that is coming," Warner said. "The die is cast. There can be no turning back. Let the chips fall where they fall."
