(Before It's News)

Media pioneer Matt Drudge stated on Twitter Thursday that the Drudge Report was under the “biggest DDoS attack since the site’s inception.”

In his tweet Drudge questioned whether the attack, which overwhelms a website’s servers with traffic in an attempt to take it offline, originated from the U.S. government.

“Is the US government attacking DRUDGE REPORT?” he tweeted. “Biggest DDoS since site’s inception. VERY suspicious routing [and timing].”

The attack came only hours after the White House announced retaliatory measures against the Russia government, which included expelling 35 “Russian intelligence operatives” from the country, for US-election related hacking.

The Drudge Report came under attack only moments after numerous reports alleged Russian state-run news network RT became unavailable on television in parts of the US – fueling speculation that the
disruption was linked to the Obama administration’s earlier announcement.

No evidence at this time points to covert action in regards to RT.
Numerous other Twitter accounts stated their access to the television network was unaltered.
