Former United Kingdom Prime Minister Liz Truss allegedly texted “It’s done” to Biden administration Secretary of State Antony Blinken shortly after the Nord Stream Pipeline systems were destroyed by large explosions in the Baltic Sea.
The allegations come amid revelations Truss’ mobile phone was reportedly hacked by foreign agents while she was serving as foreign secretary, which the opposing Labor Party declared must be “urgently investigated” in a statement this week.
“There are immensely important national security issues raised by an attack like this by a hostile state,” Labour’s shadow home secretary, Yvette Cooper, said in that statement.
“There are also serious security questions around why and how this information has been leaked or released right now which must also be urgently investigated,” she said. “It is essential that all of these security issues are investigated and addressed at the very highest level.”
U.K. Housing Secretary Michael Gove did not deny reports of the hack and reportedly insisted “very robust protocols” were in place to ensure communication security.
“I don’t know the full details of what security breach, if any, took place,” Gove said. “I’m sure that the right protocols were followed. I’m sure that more information, as appropriate, will be released.”
According to reports, Truss’ allies claim that she has “had trouble sleeping” over news of the alleged hack because it could “compromise her bid to become prime minister.”
Claims about Truss’ alleged controversial text to Blinken were made by former Megaupload CEO Kim Dotcom, who alleges that the remark could be the reason that the Kremlin believes the UK is responsible for the Nord Stream explosions.
“Liz Truss used her iPhone to send a message to Secretary Blinken saying ‘it’s done’ a minute after the pipeline blew up and before anybody else knew,” tweeted Dotcom, adding that an iCloud hack could have occured.
“It’s not just the Five Eyes that have backdoor admin access to all Big Tech databases,” he said. “Russia and China have sophisticated cyber units too. The funny thing is Govt officials with top security clearance still prefer using iPhones over their NSA & GCHQ issued encrypted shit-phones.”
How do the Russians know that the UK blew up the North Stream pipelines in partnership with the US?
iCloud admin access rocks!

“How do the Russians know that the UK blew up the North Stream pipelines in partnership with the US? Because @trussliz used her iPhone to send a message to @SecBlinken saying ‘It’s done’ a minute after the pipeline blew up and before anybody else knew? iCloud admin access rocks!” Dotcom wrote in a separate tweet.
Dotcom did not prevent any evidence to support his claim. However, various theories have emerged over the weeks about who could be responsible for the destruction of the Nord Stream systems, including the claim that the Biden administration sabotaged the pipeline.
“If they did this, this would be one of the craziest, most destructive things any American administration has ever done,” said Fox News host Carlson, Valiant News reported in late September.

“But, it would also be totally consistent with what they do. What do they do? They destroy. These people built nothing. Not one thing. Instead, they tear down and they desecrate — from historic statues, to the Constitution, to energy infrastructure,” Carlson noted.
