Hunter Biden Admits the Laptop Was His: A countersuit by Hunter Biden against John Paul Mac Isaac, the Delaware computer repair shop owner who exposed his alleged corrupt business dealings, drug abuse, and sexcapades, seems to admit that the laptop was his. It seeks damages for exposing his life to the world.
Hunter Biden and His Next Move
Revelations from the younger Biden’s laptop brought him years of unwanted media attention. Now with the House Oversight and Accountability Committee looking into his financial dealings with energy firms linked to Chinese military intelligence, it has brought him serious legal headaches.
If the committee finds that President Joe Biden personally profited from Hunter’s and could jeopardize his father’s re-election chances if it can be proven the president personally was either influenced based on Hunter’s business dealing or if he profited from them.
President Joe Biden vociferously denied that the laptop unearthed by the New York Post belonged to his son Hunter during the 2020 debates with former President Donald Trump. He cited the authority of fifty former U.S. intelligence officials, including former CIA Director John Brennan and Director of National Intelligence James Clapper who signed a letter claiming that the New York Post report on the laptop was likely Russian disinformation.
Mac Isaac claims that he became the laptop’s legal owner in 2019 due to Hunter Biden never picking up the laptop after numerous efforts to contact Hunter. Mac Isaac states Hunter signed paperwork when agreeing to laptop repair work that if it was not picked up in a certain amount of time Mac Isaac took legal custody of the equipment – a standard practice with any computer repair store.
Mac Isaac handed over the laptop’s contents to Rudolph Guiliani’s lawyer Robert Costello in December 2019.
What Hunter Thinks
Hunter Biden maintains that although he signed a release form whereby the laptop would be considered abandoned should he not recover the device in a set period of time that it did not apply to the laptop’s contents.
“Moreover, even if the Repair Authorization form were enforceable under Delaware law, by its own terms, it provides abandonment of only any ‘equipment’ that is left behind at the Mac Shop, and not the data on or embedded within any such equipment,” Hunter Biden’s countersuit states.
The suit continues: “Customers who sign Mac Isaac’s Repair Authorization form do not, therefore, waive any rights under Delaware law for the data that any equipment might contain. Reputable computer companies and repair people routinely delete personal data contained on devices that are exchanged, left behind, or abandoned. They do not open, copy, and then provide that data to others, as Mac Isaac did here.”
Hunter Biden’s claim states that he never permitted Mac Isaac to share the contents from his laptop and notes that Mac Isaac supported Trump’s candidacy for president.
As a result of this bias, Biden contends that Mac Isaac provided the laptop’s contents to Joe Biden’s political enemies with the intent of harming his father’s presidential campaign.
As recently as February, Hunter Biden’s attorney Abbe Lowell implicitly denied that a laptop existed in an note to the New York Post.
“These letters do not confirm Mac Isaac’s or others’ versions of a so-called laptop,” Lowell wrote. “They address their conduct of seeking, manipulating and disseminating what they allege to be Mr. Biden’s personal data, wherever they claim to have gotten it.”
Hunter Biden has now confirmed what the Rolling Stone and other center-left media outlets had claimed to have been a “conspiracy theory” as being fact.
Remember this: “The New York Post story is dubious, to say the very least. Many questions have been raised about its sourcing (not to mention the timing of its publication weeks before the election), the emails published in the story are unverified, and more than 50 former intelligence officials have signed a letter stating their belief the story is part of a foreign disinformation campaign,” Rolling Stone reporter EJ Dickson wrote.
“Moreover, the Delaware repair shop owner, a Trump supporter and conspiracy theorist, told reporters that he is “legally blind” and did not even see who dropped off the alleged laptop, only believing it to be Hunter’s because it allegedly had a sticker from the Beau Biden Foundation.”
Perhaps it’s time for reporters to return to the old journalistic dictum of not trusting sources just because they share the political bent of a particular candidate or campaign and report the news.
