September 27, 2023: On Tuesday, Hunter Biden is suing Ex-President Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani, regarding infamous laptop over alleged computer fraud violations and data entry related to a laptop Biden is said to have gone at a Delaware repair shop.
“Defendants are among those who have been primarily responsible for what has been described as the ‘complete annihilation’ of Plaintiff’s digital privacy,” Biden’s suit in Los Angeles national court says.
“They also are among those primarily responsible for the ‘total annihilation’ of Plaintiff’s data.”
Biden, son of President Joe Biden, 2020 has been the target of attacks by Giuliani, retired President Donald Trump, Republican members of Congress, and conservative media outlets over the alleged contents of that computer.
Giuliani delivered notification allegedly gleaned from Biden’s laptop to the New York Post, a newspaper owned by Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp., in October 2020, a month before the election between Trump and Joe Biden.
The Post then posted a story based on that data, which suggested that President Biden may have attended a meeting with a representative of a Ukrainian company that employed Hunter.
Claims that Joe Biden was involved in his son’s allegedly corrupt business dealings, partly based on information from the laptop, are the focus of an impeachment inquiry into the Democratic president by GOP-run House committees.
Hunter Biden’s lawsuit in Los Angeles federal court also names as a defendant Robert Costello, an attorney and former federal prosecutor who previously represented Giuliani.
The suit says, “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.”
The suit also says Biden’s data was “manipulated, altered, and damaged” before being copied and sent to Giuliani and Costello.
And it accuses them of being involved in “further alterations and damage to the data” that currently is unknown to Biden.
