Hunter Biden, the son of President Joe Biden, filed a lawsuit against a Delaware computer repair shop owner for invasion of privacy after he gave Biden’s laptop to his “political enemies.”
The lawsuit filed Friday by Biden’s attorneys is a countersuit to one filed by John Paul Mac Isaac, the owner of the repair shop.
“Mac Isaac intended and knew, or clearly should have known, that people to whom he provided the data that he believed to belong to Mr. Biden would use it against then-candidate Joseph Biden and to assist then-President Trump,” read the lawsuit.
The lawsuit accused Mac Isaac of handing over Biden’s “sensitive, private material” from the laptop.
“Mac Isaac intended and knew, or clearly should have known, that people to whom he provided the data that he believed to belong to Mr. Biden would use it against then-candidate Joseph Biden and to assist then-President Trump,” the lawsuit read.
Hunter Biden reportedly dropped the laptop off to Mac Isaac’s shop in Wilmington, Delaware, in April 2019 and asked him to recover the data after it had become water damaged. Mac Isaac was able to do so but he grew alarmed at the data he saw on the laptop
Biden didn’t pick up the laptop and after 90 days it became the property of Mac Isaac. He says that he sent it to the FBI, but eight months later, as the election grew near, he heard nothing back and saw nothing in the media. That’s when he alerted Rudy Giuliani, who represented former President Donald Trump at the time, about the laptop.
In 2020, the New York Post published the contents of the laptop, but the story was censored by social media platforms over claims that the laptop might have been part of a Russian disinformation campaign. In March 2022, the New York Times verified that some of the information on the laptop was authentic.
Mac Issac said in an interview with Inside Edition in November that he had no regrets about what he did despite admitting that he fears for his life.
“If I did not do it, I would be doing a disservice to the country,” he said.
