Several conservative outlets have faced cyberattacks after reporting on alleged recordings of President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden. These media outlets were hit with DDoS cyberattacks just minutes after reporting on the bombshell news that a foreign national who allegedly bribed Joe and Hunter Biden has audio recordings of his conversations with them.
Sen. Grassley dropped the bombshell during a Senate floor speech Monday, saying, “These recordings were allegedly kept as a sort of insurance policy for the foreign national in case he got into a tight spot.”
“The (file) also indicates that then-Vice President Joe Biden may have been involved in Burisma employing Hunter Biden,” he added.
Conservative news outlets The Post Millennial, the DC Enquirer, and Human Events all said they were targeted by cyberattacks after covering the story.
“How strange that our site would be targeted with a DDoS attack just minutes after we release breaking news that basically confirms Joe and Hunter Biden’[s] corruption,” The Post Millennial tweeted.
Human Events Senior Editor Jack Posobiec told podcast host Tim Pool Monday night that his team informed him that the outlet was facing “a deliberate attempt to take down” the website minutes after its report on Grassley’s announcement was published.
“It seems like the attack on Human Events, Post Millennial, Bongino Report, and a couple other websites may be related to this GOP report about Biden’s recordings,” Pool said.
The cyberattacks are a serious threat to freedom of speech. They are an attempt to silence conservative voices and to suppress information that could be damaging to Biden. The Biden campaign should investigate the cyberattacks and take steps to prevent them from happening again.
The conservative outlets that have been targeted by the cyberattacks should not be silenced. They are providing an important service by reporting on the alleged recordings of Joe and Hunter Biden. The public has a right to know about these allegations, and the conservative outlets should be allowed to report on them without fear of reprisal.
