Hunter Biden filed a countersuit Friday against the Delaware computer repairman, John Paul Mac Isaac, who claimed to have worked on Hunter’s personal computer way back in 2019. The president’s latchkey son is alleging that Mac Isaac illegally obtained and distributed his “electronically stored data,” thereby invading his privacy.
Yet, his attorneys insist that the legal action in no way should be taken as proof that the “laptop from hell” is real.
“This is not an admission by Mr. Biden that Mac Isaac (or others) in fact possessed any particular laptop containing electronically stored data belonging to Mr. Biden,” the first footnote in the 42-page countersuit filed in Delaware states. “Rather, Mr. Biden simply acknowledges that at some point, Mac Isaac obtained electronically stored data, some of which belonged to Mr. Biden.”
Oddly enough, despite not admitting that Hunter’s laptop existed, they claim that if it did exist, Mac Isaac broke the law by accessing the data instead of taking measures to properly secure it.
As readers well know, Mac Isaac has claimed that Hunter dropped off his laptop and never returned. Mac Isaac has also claimed that Biden signed a contract stating that any equipment left after 90 days would become Mac Isaac’s possession.
Hunter’s attorney denies that and argues that Delaware state law would overrule such an agreement. Furthermore, they claim that the “Repair Authorization Form” still wouldn’t give Mac Isaac access to any stored personal data on a laptop that they won’t admit exists.
“At no time did Mr. Biden grant Mac Isaac any permission to access, review, copy, or disseminate for his own purposes any electronically stored data that ever was created or received or maintained by Mr. Biden (regardless of how Mac Isaac came into possession of such material),” the countersuit claims. (emphasis added)
So how did Mac Isaac get Hunter’s personal data? His attorneys have no idea how. They can’t even say which personal data they are talking about.
“In or before April 2019, Counterclaim Defendant Mac Isaac, by whatever means, came into possession of certain electronically stored data, at least some of which belonged to Counterclaim Plaintiff Biden,” his attorneys wrote. (emphasis added)
Now, The Daily Wire audience knows that conservative news outlets have verified that the laptop belongs to Hunter. It appears that The New York Post, the first to report this bombshell story that got them censored on Twitter in 2020, has been fully vindicated.
After the 2020 election, once Biden was inaugurated and the story could do less damage to the Democratic Party, legacy media outlets finally began looking into whether they exist or not. Politico, The New York Times, and The Washington Post all confirmed it was Hunter’s laptop. Here’s how Hunter’s attorneys responded to that reporting:
Mr. Biden denies that any Politico story confirmed the validity of the New York Post exposé.
Mr. Biden denies that any New York Times story confirmed the validity of the New York Post exposé.
Mr. Biden denies that any Washington Post story confirmed the validity of the New York Post exposé.
We already know that Hunter requested that his dad’s Department of Justice investigate Mac Isaac and others associated with the story. Since that didn’t work, it appears Hunter is not content to throw up a lawsuit, chillingly accuse Mac Isaac of consorting with “political enemies of Joseph Biden,” and neither confirm nor deny the existence of said laptop.
As attorney Jonathan Turley put it, it’s a “rather a curious countersuit.”
…This is rather a curious countersuit. Hunter left his his computer with a third party, refused repeated request to retrieve them, and agreed that he would lose all claim to the files if abandoned. Now, years later, he is objecting vehemently that his privacy was not protected.
