Gingrich: Biden “Should Be Able To Order Killings” Of Pipeline Hackers


Newt Gingrich called the Colonial Pipeline cyberattack “an act of war” and said President Joe Biden should “order the killings of anybody overseas” who was behind the attack in an interview Monday night with FOX News host Sean Hannity. The pipeline, which delivers 45% of the fuel consumed on the East Coast, was hacked by a group that goes by the name DarkSide. “On the national security part, we ought to pass a law immediately that makes this kind of hacking subject to a death penalty and the law should include a provision that the president, through a judicial process, should be able to order the killings of anybody overseas who is doing this,” Gingrich said. “It’s an act of war against the United States to do stuff like this,” he continued. “We need to react to it as an act of war, and the American people are going to look at their Representatives and their Senators and say, ‘If you don’t fix this, your successor will. I won’t put up with it, and I won’t put up with you if you don’t fix it.'” “We have no idea who they are. We have no idea where they are,” Gingrich said. “If we did know who they were, we would have no mechanism to do anything about it.” “A great country can’t allow people to savage it and have no consequences and wait for the next attack. And yet that literally is where we are,” he added.
