Colonial Pipeline Co. likely paid more than $4 million to hackers in order to get its pipeline back up and running.

“The payments have been made to the terrorists,” billionaire John Catsimatidis, told FOX Business’ Maria Bartiromo on Thursday morning. “I understand from my sources that $4 million was paid.”

The article goes on to state the following:

When asked by reporters if he knew about the ransom payment, President Biden said he had “no comment.”

Bloomberg reported Thursday morning that, according to their sources, Colonial paid nearly $5 million in ransom money to the hackers.

Below is the interview with John Catsimatidis and Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo.

On Monday, the FBI confirmed that the DarkSide hacker gang is responsible for the hack which shut down the Colonial Pipeline last Friday. DarkSide is known as a criminal gang with ties to Russia.

Colonial Pipeline is one of the largest pipelines in the United States, carrying refined gasoline and jet fuel up the East Coast from Texas to New York. It transports over 100 million gallons per day, or about 45% of fuel consumed on the East Coast, delivering gasoline, diesel, jet fuel and heating oil, and also serves U.S. military facilities.

The company announced on Wednesday that it was back in operation, but said it will take a few days to get everything back to normal.

  1. I do not believe it is Russian hackers I believe that it is an inside job and with our technology this should not be happening

  2. And so it begins!!! I believe Anifa,BLM,Soros or all of the above are responsible.Guess where that money is coming from? You guessed it US, the tax payer!!😤🤯

  3. No Comments BS. It is part of the Green New Deal. They were just letting people know we are in control, and can control all resources when ever feel necessary. They are slowly trying to weed people over. How is the Asshole going to fly in Airforce 1, with no fuel in the future to get to where he wants to go. I sure wouldn’t want to trust an electric run plane 36000 feet in the air.

  4. No Comments BS. It is part of the Green New Deal. They were just letting people know we are in control, and can control all resources when ever feel necessary. They are slowly trying to weed people over. How is the AH going to fly in Airforce 1, with no fuel in the future to get to where he wants to go. I sure wouldn’t want to trust an electric run plane 36000 feet in the air.

  5. There is a woman who mentions on White House Press, she said that we should buy an electric car so we don’t have to depend on energy. That tells me they plan this. So where the 5 million dollars go?????

  6. I said it was bozo and ho and I truly believe it was. They are going to push electric cars they get a kickback on, who can afford one ??? Yes they will zap our power and everything else showing us their control. Cubans have started trying to tell people what communism does and the cost, this is the beginning of the end of any freedoms and choices.

  7. So our fuel sources take a hit, people panic and they pay off the people that did the job. Next up, we’ll need 4 trillion more dollars to fix our “infrastructure” to prevent this type of thing from happening again. They don’t even hide their extortion of the American people to enrich themselves and wrest power away from the taxpayer. The deep state is operating at full throttle once again.

  8. Babbling biden is a disgrace to our country. I would really like to say what
    I feel about this piece of excrement, but I imagine his Gestapo would throw in a reeducation camp. I can only hope for painful death for this traitor.

  9. Ukraine ??? Hunter ??? WTH !!! This administration is so rotten it stinks worse than a rotten potato. He needs impeached and like the day after his fake inauguration

  10. So the biden apointee Granholm running the Department of Energy still has not divested her stock in Proterra..an electric buss Company. Isn’t she pushing electric cars and other vehicles? Didn’t Joe just visit an electric car building plant? When asked about the Colonial pipeline, Granholm said. “if
    you owned an electric car, you would not have to worry about gas”. Are you lining your pockets,
    Granholm with that 5 million in stock options? Should you not have sold that immediately when you became Secretary of Energy? Stinks like 3- day old fish, doesn’t it?
