Hunter Biden Sues Rudy Giuliani Over Laptop Data

Sep 26, 2023 | True Patriot News Daily

Hunter Biden filed a lawsuit against Rudy Giuliani on Tuesday, alleging that the former Trump lawyer violated his privacy rights by illegally disseminating content from Biden's laptop. The lawsuit, filed in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California, also names Robert Costello, a former federal prosecutor who previously represented Giuliani, as a defendant.

The lawsuit alleges that Giuliani and Costello “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 lawsuit further alleges that the data was not even from a “laptop,” but from an “external drive.” The contents of this “external drive” include pictures, videos, emails and other data that since their initial publication by the New York Post in 2020, have paced Biden in legal jeopardy and caused political problems for this father, President Biden.

Giuliani and Costello have openly acknowledged that they obtained copies of files from a hard drive device that Biden allegedly left at a Delaware computer repair shop in 2019. Giuliani provided that information to the Post in October 2020, which published a story based on Hunter Biden's emails that implicated President Biden in a business deal with a Ukrainian company that had hired Hunter on its board.

House Republicans have launched an impeachment inquiry into President Biden based on claims that he used his position, then as vice president, to deter Ukrainian prosecutors from investigating the company that his son worked for. GOP lawmakers further allege, based on their follow-up investigations, that the president was involved in several business deals arranged by his son Hunter.

The lawsuit seeks a court order to prevent Giuliani and others from accessing, tampering with, manipulating or copying Biden's data and have them return the “device/hard drive” to Biden, along with any backup files, cloud files or copies of the same data.

The lawsuit is the latest effort from Biden and his lawyers to hit back after leaks of the information catapulted his sordid private life onto the front page of many conservative media outlets. Biden has repeatedly denied any wrongdoing, and his father, the president, has defended him.

The lawsuit comes at a time when Giuliani is facing mounting legal problems. He was recently suspended from practicing law in New York for making false statements about the 2020 election. He is also facing a criminal investigation in Manhattan for his role in the Trump administration's efforts to pressure Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden.

Hunter Biden on Tuesday filed a lawsuit against Rudy Giuliani alleging the former President Trump lawyer violated his privacy rights by illegally disseminating content from Biden's infamous laptop.

The complaint filed in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California states Giuliani is “primarily responsible” for the “total annihilation” of Biden's digital privacy. It also names Robert Costello, a former federal prosecutor who previously represented Giuliani, as a defendant, Fox News has confirmed. 

“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,” Biden's attorneys wrote in the complaint, claiming that the data was not even from a “laptop,” but from an “external drive.”
