Hunter Biden, the enfant terrible of a family already marked with scandals, gave a court deposition this morning as part of a civil lawsuit brought by John Paul Mac Isaac, the owner of a Delaware repair shop where Hunter in 2019 brought three of his laptops for repair, according to Just the News. Mr. Mac Isaac filed a lawsuit against Hunter Biden back in October 2022 for alleged defamation. Mac Isaac is suing Hunter for $1.5 million in damages.
The president’s son filed a countersuit alleging that Mr. Mac Isaac illegally distributed his personal data from the hard drive of the one laptop that was salvageable. Mr. Mac Isaac claims that Hunter had legally abandoned title to his laptop given that Hunter failed to reclaim the laptop despite the owner’s repeated attempts to contact the president’s son. Further, Mac Isaac says that the laptop’s ownership was transferred to himself after 90 days due to a form that Hunter signed on to when he dropped off his laptops.
Mac Isaac listed in his lawsuit various conflicting statements by Hunter where the president’s son falsely denied that the laptop in his show was ever his or had been stolen or hacked into. When Mr. Mac Isaac accessed the data of the laptop, he discovered disturbing material and turned in the hard drive to the Federal Bureau of Investigation back in 2019. He also gave a copy of that hard drive to Rudy Giuliani’s lawyer in 2020. The story by the New York Post that broke the damning information contained on the laptop was censored by corporate and social media in October 2020.
Infamously, a letter released by former national security officials tried to bury the scandalous material by asserting that the laptop story could be Russian disinformation. It was later revealed that this letter was prompted by and written for the benefit of the Biden campaign. At least one active employee within the CIA may have illegally participated in the circulation of the letter for signatories. This is despite the fact that both the CIA and the FBI do not regard the laptop as part of a Russian disinformation campaign. The FBI itself knew that the laptop was authentic back in 2019.
Since its public release, the Delaware computer repairman was forced to close his business and go into hiding. Mr. Mac Isaac railed against the two-tier justice system when he complained that “My family and I have witnessed the bias in the FBI going back as far as October of 2019, when they refused to touch the Hunter Biden laptop with a ten-foot pole until, finally, in December, they came in and they took it, and even then they seemed to be reluctant.”
