Rep. Lauren Boebert pointed out how disturbing it is that the $5,000,000 ransom was paid to the "hackers" who shut down the Colonial Pipeline, causing a gas shortage in the southeast earlier this week.
She clobbered President Joe Biden, pointing out his "weak" leadership.
Boebert t0ld Newsmax host Sean Spicer, "We have just shown that we have weak leadership and that bad actors can get away with this kind of stuff. These hackers wouldn't have dared attack America's infrastructure under President Trump."
She continued, "It's absurd that the most powerful country on the planet has a gas shortage because one pipeline was hacked. We sure could use the backup, like, let's say, the Keystone XL pipeline. And it's too bad the Biden regime, and their 'America last' policies canceled that project and weakened America in the process."
On Monday, Deputy National Security Adviser Anne Neuberger said some companies might not have a choice but to pay a ransom. "We recognize, though, that companies are often in a difficult position if their data is encrypted and they do not have backups and cannot recover the data," Neuberger said.
The FBI states it "does not support paying a ransom in response to a ransomware attack. Paying a ransom doesn't guarantee you or your organization will get any data back. It also encourages perpetrators to target more victims and offers an incentive for others to get involved in this type of illegal activity."
Boebert stated that one of her first acts in Congress was to introduce the Protecting American Energy Jobs Act, but she said that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., won't let her bring the bill to the floor. The bill "would nullify Biden's energy killing 'green new deal executive orders' and restore American energy dominance," Boebert said.
