A new website unveiling over 10,000 photos from the infamous Hunter Biden laptop, which aimed to bring “truth and transparency” to America’s first family, crashed shortly after launching on Thursday.
Garrett Ziegler, the founder of the nonprofit Marco Polo, told Fox News that it took engineers on the site — BidenLaptopMedia.com — “a couple of months” to redact obscene content from thousands of photos spanning from 2008 to 2019, including images exposing Hunter’s genitals and multiple nude photos of his deceased brother Beau Biden’s wife, Hallie Biden.
“The number one thing we’re about … is truth and transparency,” Ziegler said. “If the American people want to know what their first family is like, they’re going to get it. And we’re not going to be taking out photos that paint the Bidens in a good light.”
However, reports claimed the website servers continued to crash by Thursday afternoon after thousands of people witnessed the photos.

Fox News claimed Ziegler provided two never-before-seen images from the laptop, showing “an array of drugs and a condom wrapper sitting on a table … from a text message conversation Hunter had with Hallie Biden” and the president’s son with his then-lover Zoe Kestan in 2018.
Other material redacted in the photos included private information such as Social Security numbers, banking information, and credit card numbers.
Ziegler said the photo project would display images chronologically and cover a “large swath” of the first family’s life while claiming the website showcasing the Biden family is not a “hit job.”
“We’re not Republican activists. None of us are registered Republicans,” he said. “In fact, I loved and still love Trump precisely because he wasn’t a standard Republican. So this is not a hit job. We’re going to keep all the photos that paint the Bidens in a good light and keep all the photos that paint the Bidens in a bad light.”
“The American people can judge for themselves what they think about their first family through this,” Ziegler added.
Marco Polo’s official Twitter account said in an update Thursday afternoon the non-profit currently has seven servers running the website, which the company said drew “massive amount of attention” the organization anticipated.
“In the first hour, we served over half-a-million hits smoothly, then the attacks began, and haven’t let up all day,” the non-profit tweeted. “We have no intention of going anywhere, as this site — like BidenLaptopEmails.com — is a historic record of the Biden Laptop, and it will be kept up and running until the end of time.”
Ziegler’s non-profit also hosts the BidenLaptopEmails.com website, which publicized over 120,000 emails from the abandoned laptop.
The continued laptop exposure comes after Hunter Biden faces ongoing investigations from federal prosecutors and lawmakers into foreign business dealings and allegations of lying about tax fraud and gun purchases.
