Hunter Biden Wants Criminal Investigations Of People Who Shared His Abandoned Laptop

Washington, DC – Attorneys for Hunter Biden asked the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Delaware Attorney General’s Office on Wednesday to launch criminal investigations into people who obtained and disseminated the contents of a laptop that he abandoned in a Delaware repair shop.

It was the first time Hunter Biden has acknowledged that the laptop, which became the center of a First Amendment controversy involving the New York Post shortly before his father’s election, did in fact belong to him, FOX News reported.

Abbe Lowell, Hunter Biden’s attorney, sent letters to DOJ and the Delaware attorney general on Feb. 1 calling for investigations into former Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani, former Trump advisor Steve Bannon, and John Mac Isaac, the owner of the Wilmington, Delaware repair shop where Hunter Biden abandoned his waterlogged laptop in April of 2019.

Attorneys for Hunter Biden also sent cease and desist letters to all of the aforementioned parties, according to FOX News.

Lowell argued in the letter that Mac Isaac had no right to look at the contents of the laptop, much less share it with others.

“This failed dirty political trick directly resulted in the exposure, exploitation, and manipulation of Mr. Biden’s private and personal information,” the attorney wrote. “Politicians and the news media have used this unlawfully accessed, copied, distributed, and manipulated data to distort the truth and cause harm to Mr. Biden.”

The attorney also accused Mac Isaac of “theft of computer services,” and Giuliani of “possession of stolen property, FOX News reported.

“Mr. Mac Isaac chose to work with President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer to weaponize Mr. Biden’s personal computer data against his father, Joseph R. Biden, by unlawfully causing the provision of Mr. Biden’s personal data to the New York Post,” Lowell wrote.

Attorneys for Hunter Biden have claimed that the contents of the laptop that were disseminated to the public may have been tampered with and appeared to admit they didn’t know what was real and what was not, FOX News reported.

Lowell wrote that it had been “exceedingly difficult because, for months, neither the New York Post ‘nor its source for the material, President Donald Trump’s attorney Rudy Giuliani, were willing to share’ that data with the public,” NBC News reported.

“More recently, downstream recipients of what has been purported to be Mr. Biden’s hard drive have reported anomalies in the data, suggesting manipulation of it,” the letters read.

“These letters do not confirm Mac Isaac’s or others’ versions of a so-called laptop,” Lowell told NBC News. “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.”

The New York Post reported on the contents of the laptop, which included obscene pictures, photos of drug use, emails, and text messages, but social media platforms, including Twitter, shut it down and labeled the news as fake.

The contents of that laptop also revealed that the U.S. Secret Service had been involved in an incident involving Hunter Biden, his wife, and a missing handgun, despite the agency’s denial in a statement that no Secret Service agents had been providing protection to Hunter Biden at that time of the incident.

Most of the messages in the New York Post story were sent by Hunter to his friend, Keith Ablow, a former celebrity psychiatrist, the New York Post reported.

Ablow lost his medical license after allegations surfaced that he “engaged in sexual activity and boundary violations with multiple patients, diverted controlled substances from patients, engaged in disruptive behavior, including displaying and pointing a firearm on multiple occasions in a manner that scared an employee, and procured his license renewal fraudulently,” according to the Massachusetts Board of Medicine.

DOJ has not yet released a statement in response to the request for a criminal investigation, FOX News reported.
