Hunter Biden’s lawyers have admitted that the infamous laptop at the center of much scrutiny does in fact belong to him, with the lawyers seeking a criminal probe into what they claim are attempts to "weaponize" the laptop, abandoned in a Delaware computer repair shop in 2019, and its contents.
Abbe Lowell, an attorney for President Biden's son, wrote in a 14-page letter to Delaware Attorney General Kathy Jennings that repair shop owner John Paul Mac Isaac had "unlawfully" accessed the laptop’s data, claiming that he worked with former President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani to "weaponize" its contents, according to the New York Post.
Lowell wrote, "This failed dirty political trick directly resulted in the exposure, exploitation, and manipulation of Mr. Biden’s private and personal information. Mr. Mac Isaac’s intentional, reckless, and unlawful conduct allowed for hundreds of gigabytes of Mr. Biden’s personal data, without any discretion, to be circulated around the Internet."
Mac Isaac had tried and failed for months in 2019 to notify Hunter that the laptop was ready to be picked up. Mac Isaac took possession of the laptop once the grace period to pick up personal property expired. He saw the laptop’s contents including emails discussing the influence-peddling involving then-Vice President Joe Biden and videos of Hunter using drugs and having sex with prostitutes he contacted the FBI.
Using passages from Mac Isaac's book "American Injustice: My Battle to Expose the Truth," Lowell said that in December 2019, Mac Isaac made a copy of the device’s hard drive and gave it to Giuliani’s personal lawyer, Robert Costello and shortly thereafter the FBI picked up the laptop. In October 2020, Giuliani then provided a copy of the hard drive to The New York Post.
Lowell’s letter states that Mac Isaac, Giuliani, Costello, former Trump White House adviser Steve Bannon, former Trump White House aide Garrett Ziegler, Bannon associate Jack Maxey, and founder and CEO of cyber analytics firm XRVision and former aide to Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) Yaacov Apelbaum were all people who gained unauthorized access to the laptop’s contents, and disseminated it to the media as well as lawmakers.
Lowell wrote in the letter, "We believe that the facts and circumstances merit further investigation as to whether the conduct of Messrs. Mac Isaac, Costello, Giuliani, Bannon, Ziegler, Maxey, and Apelbaum violated several provisions of Delaware’s criminal code – including, but not necessarily limited to, computer-related property offenses … theft … possession of stolen property … and misapplication of another’s property … Each of these offenses, if violated, has the potential to be a felony, depending on the value of the property in question."
Hunter’s lawyers also sent letters to the Justice Department’s National Security Division and the IRS challenging the nonprofit status of Marco Polo, a group that is run by Ziegler.
According to the Daily Mail, Bryan M. Sullivan, another lawyer representing Hunter, sent other letters to Tucker Carlson and Fox News demanding that Carlson retract what lawyers claim are false and defamatory statements that Hunter Biden had access to classified documents stored in the President's garage.
Lowell asked in a letter to the Department of Justice that a probe be launched into possible violations of statutes prohibiting the unauthorized access of a computer or stored electronic communications, the transport of stolen data across state lines, as well as the publication of restricted data with the intent to threaten or intimidate.
Mac Isaac told The Post, "I think with Congress starting investigations next week, it’s a scare tactic. The flak is heaviest when you are over the target!"Rep. James Comer (R-KY), chairman of the House Oversight Committee, told the National Press Club on Monday that the hearings that are scheduled to begin next week will focus on Hunter’s alleged influence peddling, and claims he cashed in on his family name to collect millions from foreign companies.
