In a civil action filed​ by Hunter Biden, he accused‍ Rudy Giuliani and his former lawyer⁢ of violating federal ⁤and ‌state computer privacy laws by allegedly trying to⁤ hack into his devices and causing “total annihilation” of his digital privacy.

On Tuesday, Hunter Biden accused Giuliani and lawyer Robert Costello of spending years “hacking into, tampering with, manipulating, copying, disseminating, and generally obsessing over ​data that they were given that was taken or stolen from” his devices in the ‌case, which was filed in federal court in California.

“Plaintiff has demanded Defendants Giuliani and Costello cease their ​unlawful activities with respect to Plaintiff’s ⁢data and return any data in their possession belonging to Plaintiff, but ‌they have refused to do so,” attorneys for Hunter Biden wrote in ‌the lawsuit. “Defendants’ statements suggest that their‍ unlawful hacking activities are ongoing today and that, unless stopped, ⁤will continue⁣ into⁤ the future, thereby necessitating this action.”

The lawsuit filed ⁤by Hunter ⁣Biden on Tuesday is the most recent in a string of aggressive legal actions he‍ has taken against his critics. Republicans are currently looking into ⁤President Joe Biden’s‍ possible ⁤impeachment, and they are also ⁢looking⁣ into Hunter’s foreign business dealings.

“Everyone involved in⁢ stealing and manipulating Hunter’s data should be hearing footsteps right ​about ⁤now,” a source on Hunter’s legal team ​told the press.

However, a Giuliani aide refuted claims that ‌the former ⁢mayor of‍ New York‍ “manipulated” any ⁢technological devices that belonged to the president’s son.

“Hunter Biden has previously refused to ‌admit ​ownership of the⁣ laptop,” said Ted Goodman, the adviser. “I’m not surprised he’s now falsely claiming his laptop hard drive ⁤was manipulated by Mayor Giuliani, considering the sordid material and potential evidence of crimes on that thing.”

Hunter Biden filed a similar legal lawsuit against former Trump White House‌ assistant Garrett Ziegler earlier this month, alleging that Ziegler “had⁣ committed much of⁤ his waking time and attention” to the endeavor of accessing devices ⁤that purportedly belonged​ to Hunter Biden since leaving his White House position.

Hunter ‍also filed a lawsuit against the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) ‌this​ week, ⁤claiming that the agency failed to secure his private data and that its employees improperly ‍disclosed his tax information.

The former New York mayor, according to ​Hunter Biden’s attorneys, “not only admitted‍ but bragged about‍ downloading data from ⁢Plaintiff’s ‘laptop’ (even⁢ though he ‌only had a ⁣hard drive) onto his ⁣own computer;⁢ about using his own computer to access, ⁤tamper with and manipulate the downloaded data; and about maintaining‍ multiple copies of the ⁣data for his and Defendant Costello’s personal use.”

What are the allegations made by‌ Hunter Biden against Mayor ⁢Giuliani regarding the hacking and manipulation of his devices?

Pon knowledge or information sufficient to form a belief as to the truth of those facts…”

— Brooke Mallory OAN (@ReporterBrooke)

Giuliani has ​been a‌ vocal critic of‌ Hunter Biden‌ and has been involved ‍in several controversies surrounding the former⁢ president’s son.‌ The alleged​ hacking and manipulation⁢ of Hunter Biden’s devices are just the latest in a series of legal battles between the ⁣two parties.

In response to ⁢the lawsuit, Giuliani’s legal team issued a statement denying the allegations and questioning the authenticity of the laptop in question. They claim that Hunter Biden has⁢ never asserted‌ ownership of the laptop and that the material found on it could potentially contain evidence of crimes.

“Mayor Giuliani did not hack or manipulate‌ any of Hunter Biden’s devices. The⁤ allegations made by Hunter Biden are baseless and unsubstantiated. We look forward to vigorously defending against these false claims in court,” Giuliani’s legal team said in a statement.

This lawsuit comes at a time when Hunter Biden is ‌facing increasing scrutiny over his foreign business dealings and his involvement with Ukrainian energy company Burisma. Republicans have accused President Joe Biden of using his position to benefit his son’s business ventures.

Hunter⁢ Biden’s legal team has been aggressive in pursuing legal action against his critics, including filing‌ lawsuits against ​former White House assistant Garrett​ Ziegler and the IRS. These​ legal battles reflect the highly contentious nature of the current political‌ climate and the ongoing investigations into the Biden family.

As the lawsuit between Hunter Biden ⁣and Giuliani unfolds, it is unclear what evidence will be‌ presented and how the case will ‍ultimately be resolved. Both parties ​are steadfast⁢ in their positions, and it will be up to the courts to determine the truth behind the allegations of hacking and privacy violations.

The outcome of this‌ case could have far-reaching implications for the involved parties and may shed light on the extent of digital privacy protections ‌in today’s society. It serves as a reminder of ‌the importance of safeguarding personal data and the⁤ potential consequences of unauthorized access and manipulation.
