Was The Colonial Pipeline Shutdown A Biden Inside Job?

On Monday, the news went viral that the U.S. recovers $2.3 million in ransom paid to Colonial Pipeline hackers, and immediately journalists became suspicious about the role of the Democrat administration of Joe Biden.

A DOJ press release on Monday reported:

“The Department of Justice today announced that it has seized 63.7 bitcoins currently valued at approximately $2.3 million. These funds allegedly represent the proceeds of a May 8, ransom payment to individuals in a group known as DarkSide, which had targeted Colonial Pipeline, resulting in critical infrastructure being taken out of operation. The seizure warrant was authorized earlier today by the Honorable Laurel Beeler, U.S. Magistrate Judge for the Northern District of California.

“Following the money remains one of the most basic, yet powerful tools we have,” said Deputy Attorney General Lisa O. Monaco for the U.S. Department of Justice. “Ransom payments are the fuel that propels the digital extortion engine, and today’s announcement demonstrates that the United States will use all available tools to make these attacks more costly and less profitable for criminal enterprises. We will continue to target the entire ransomware ecosystem to disrupt and deter these attacks. Today’s announcements also demonstrate the value of early notification to law enforcement; we thank Colonial Pipeline for quickly notifying the FBI when they learned that they were targeted by DarkSide.”

“There is no place beyond the reach of the FBI to conceal illicit funds that will prevent us from imposing risk and consequences upon malicious cyber actors,” said FBI Deputy Director Paul Abbate. “We will continue to use all of our available resources and leverage our domestic and international partnerships to disrupt ransomware attacks and protect our private sector partners and the American public.”

“Colonial Pipeline suffered a ransomware attack in early May and responded by preemptively shutting down the pipeline’s entire operations for some time, forcing a temporary but major energy crisis throughout the Southeastern United States. In order for the computers that maintained the pipeline to get back to full operation, Colonial agreed to pay a ransom in the form of 75 bitcoin, which was worth about $5 million at the time,” Jordan Schachtel, an independent journalist reported, also pointing out in his article that he had suspicions about the role of the administration.

Conservative Treehouse also pointed out their suspicions that it was the government who were the hackers, referring to another report by Geoff Bennett of NBC News, who posted on Twitter about the timeline of events with the Pipeline and the government’s response.

Conservative Treehouse deconstructed the Biden DOJ press release:

“According to their press release, the DOJ seized 63.7 Bitcoin (digital currency) through accessing a server in North Carolina used to enter the Bitcoin wallet password of the original hackers.  However, the DOJ still claims the “hackers” were sophisticated Russian operatives.  Meaning the “Russian Hackers” were so sophisticated they could hack a major gas pipeline, but not sophisticated enough to protect their wallet and hosted it online on a US-based server?

DOJ […] approximately 63.7 bitcoins, representing the proceeds of the victim’s ransom payment, had been transferred to a specific address, for which the FBI has the “private key,” or the rough equivalent of a password needed to access assets accessible from the specific Bitcoin address.

Doesn’t this seem like either the private key wasn’t private, or the FBI was the original hacker of the pipeline?”

MORE JOURNALISM

“The federal government says it seized by court order $2.3 million of the ransom paid by Colonial Pipeline. The FBI had the password to the hackers’ Bitcoin account, @PeteWilliamsNBC reports. Today we turned the tables on DarkSide, says Deputy Attorney General Lisa Monaco,” Bennett reported.

I hate to think this would be true from unbelievable crap I have seen and heard of since I started paying attention to politics, I wouldn’t be surprised.

No one who’s even slightly “awake” thought this was done by anyone else BUT the gov’t as it’s right in line with the globalist agenda that Biden has brought us back into, just like the current meat “shortage”; quite the theater!

DAY

The left wing Nazis are behind all of it. Just look how we suddenly have a lot of ”mass shootings”. All ”coincidences?” I think not.

Well, in 2016 the FBI PUT $100,000 dollars in a trust for Biden’s grandkids. I guess he turned a blind eye to some monkey business. And, remember Obama kicked out any reliable people in government agencies and military. What we are seeing is a Democratic mafia.

GREAT POINT!!

Anything that occurred after January 20th up until today and then the remainder of Creepy, Sleepy, Corrupt obidens term will have been or will be initiated by the DemonRATS. Those devils are scheming on a level that we can’t even comprehend. I advise anyone who is not a DemonRAT to steer clear of those devils. They are not going to help you!

Recce1

I usually tell people to put their tin foil hats back on, but with all the provable deceptions by our government, usually by the socialist deep state, the reweaponization of government agencies like Obama did, the massive voting fraud, the agent provocateurs actually arrested on 1/6, the release of true terrorists by government, the witch hunt for Trump conservatives, the denial of the Chinese Wuhan bio weapon virus, and the subverting of our military with critical race theory, well…the querstion is a fair one, and I fear the answer.

Shirley Storey

Yes, isn’t it interesting that Obama took away any restraint on researching the Covid virus 17 days before Trump took office,, and that he and Fauci both contributed a large amount of money to a group associated with the Wuhan lab. Also, isn’t it interesting that a vaccine almost immediately emerged after the virus started. It would seem that it was a known occurance. I think Fauci played Trump pretty good-a Demon Rat plant. Suppose, just suppose the virus wasn’t an accident.
