Hunter Biden Suing Rudy Giuliani
Rudy Giuliani is facing a new lawsuit from Hunter Biden.
According to the lawsuit, “Defendants are among those who have been primarily responsible for what has been described as the ‘total annihilation’ of Plaintiff’s digital privacy.”
Hunter Biden is suing Rudy Giuliani for the “total annihilation” of his digital privacy and data, filing a civil suit over the former mayor’s involvement in disseminating information he purported to be from Biden’s laptop.
“Defendants are among those who have been primarily responsible for what has been described as the ‘total annihilation’ of Plaintiff’s digital privacy,” Biden’s attorneys wrote in the suit.
“For the past many months and even years, Defendants have dedicated an extraordinary amount of time and energy toward looking for, hacking into, tampering with, manipulating, copying, disseminating, and generally obsessing over data that they were given that was taken or stolen from Plaintiff’s devices or storage platforms, including what Defendants claim to have obtained from Plaintiff’s alleged ‘laptop’ computer,’” they wrote, noting the data actually came from a hard drive.
The suit, filed in California, alleged that Giuliani violated the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, as well as a California law dealing with data access and fraud.
This comes two days before the House Oversight Committee’s impeachment inquiry into Joe Biden is set to begin.
The lawsuit comes two days before the Republican-led House Oversight Committee hearing in the impeachment inquiry of President Biden, based in part on information from the laptop. The White House has dismissed the inquiry as baseless and hyper-partisan.
