(RepublicanWire.org) – Hunter Biden filed a lawsuit Friday against the computer repairman, John Paul Mac Isaac, who turned over files on a laptop Hunter left at his shop to the New York Post ahead of the 2020 presidential election.

Hunter Biden “had more than a reasonable expectation of privacy that any data that he created or maintained,” reads the lawsuit filed with a Delaware federal court Friday morning. The president’s son was under the impression it “would not be accessed, copied, disseminated, or posted on the Internet for others to use against him or his family or for the public to view.”

Lawyers representing Hunter Biden have challenged Mac Isaac’s assertion that his failure to retrieve the laptop after 90 days granted the Delaware repairman its ownership.

“Contrary to Mac Isaac’s Repair Authorization form, Delaware law provides that tangible personal property is deemed abandoned,” the lawsuit explained. Rather, the legal team insists that Hunter Biden had rightful ownership to “assert or declare property rights to the property for a period of 1 year.”

In late January, Mac Isaac hired a private investigator to locate Biden in Culver City, Calif., and serve the president’s son with a $1.5 million lawsuit seeking damages. The computer repairman alleges that Biden and his legal team are trying to pursue criminal charges against Mac Isaac as an act of reprisal for sharing the contents of the laptop.

“He’s trying to intimidate. And it’s interesting to me that this happened when it did,” Mac Isaac’s lawyer Brian Della Rocca told Tucker Carlson on Fox News.

On April 12, 2019, Biden brought the laptop to Mac Isaac’s store seeking to determine if data on three devices could be recovered. However, Biden failed to return to collect the equipment and never paid Mac Isaac for his services.

The files eventually made their way to the New York Post less than a month before the 2020 presidential election. Dubbed “The Laptop from Hell” by the Miranda Devine of the Post, early reporting showed that Hunter Biden had introduced a Ukrainian energy executive to then-vice-president Joe Biden and chronicled other unseemly business dealings that suggested influence peddling.

When the articles were first published, social-media networks including Twitter and Facebook, quickly banned the dissemination of their content, alleging it may have been the product of election interference on the part of Russian intelligence.

The legal move represents the latest escalation in Hunter Biden’s tiff with Mac Isaac that saw the president’s son hire prominent criminal defense attorney, Abbe Lowell, who has issued a raft of cease-and-desist letters to Rudy Giuliani, Steve Bannon, the Department of Justice, and the Internal Revenue Agency in recent weeks.

Another lawyer retained by Biden, Bryan Sullivan, zeroed in on Fox News and Tucker Carlson, demanding the network retract its earlier reporting on the laptop. The star anchor, Sullivan alleged, is in “flagrant violation of all journalistic professionalism,” which might make the news outlet liable for “potential litigation.”

The president’s son is requesting a jury trial and “compensatory damages” from Mac Isaac.

(RepublicanWire.org) – FBI officials obstructed the investigation into Hunter Biden’s laptop prior to the 2020 election by instructing agents not to further examine the laptop, whistleblowers purportedly told Wisconsin Republican Sen. Ron Johnson.

Federal authorities took the laptop from a Delaware computer repair shop in December 2019 after being alerted to its presence by the store owner. However, whistleblowers said local FBI leadership told employees not to look at the laptop for months and declared the FBI would not further change the election outcome, according to a letter Johnson sent Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz Tuesday.

“These whistleblowers stated that local FBI leadership told employees, ‘you will not look at that Hunter Biden laptop’ and that the FBI is ‘not going to change the outcome of the election again,” Johnson wrote. “Further, these whistleblowers allege that the FBI did not begin to examine the contents of Hunter Biden’s laptop until after the 2020 presidential election—potentially a year after the FBI obtained the laptop.”

Johnson recounted asking the FBI in October 2020 what it had done after obtaining the laptop.

“The FBI failed to respond to my questions and I led the call for you to examine whether the FBI took appropriate and necessary investigative steps after receiving Hunter Biden’s laptop,” he said. “Four months later, in February 2021, you informed me that your office would not take any actions that could interfere with an ongoing investigation.”

Johnson argued the whistleblowers’ claims “provide even more evidence of FBI corruption and renew calls for you to take immediate steps to investigate the FBI’s actions regarding the laptop.”

Chris Swecker, Former Assistant FBI Director, went on Fox News and reacted to the allegations, “I think there are multiple whistleblowers, that’s why I find it credible.”

The New York Post published a report weeks before the 2020 presidential election about the emails from the laptop that showed Hunter Biden’s foreign business dealings with Ukrainian energy company, Burisma, where he was part of the Board of Directors. Former President Donald Trump’s then-lawyer Rudy Giuliani had given the outlet information about the computer’s hard drive.

(RepublicanWire.org) – Hackers who are part of an online community called “4chan” have allegedly hacked Hunter Biden’s iCloud backup data.

It’s important to note that media outlets are still trying to verify the contents of Biden’s hacked iCloud. The material has not yet been authenticated.

The hackers allegedly figured out Hunter’s password in order to crack his iPhone.

Political commentator and Human Events host Jack Posobiec responded, “4chan has apparently cracked Hunter Biden’s iPhone backup password and are leaking everything.”

Numerous media outlets have reported that the hackers quickly started to leak all of the alleged contents of Hunter’s iPhone backup data.

In an alleged 2018 text message, Hunter lashed out at first lady Jill Biden while speaking to his romantic partner and late brother’s widow. The text message calls Jill a “selfish silly entitled c**t.”

Site administrators of 4chan rushed to take down the posts as quickly as they could. However, many posts on the site still remain as they are being posted again or save to other sites.

Posobiec continued, “4chan has already created torrents for the Hunter Biden iPhone and iCloud backups and are now seeding them. That means even if 4chan gets shut down the copies will still be out there.”

CNBC reported Sunday that Apple has announced a new feature for iPhones called “Lockdown Mode” which will “protect high-profile users such as politicians and activists against state-sponsored hackers.”

Earlier this year the Washington Examiner was able to further verify the contents of Hunter Biden’s “laptop from hell”, which was a story broken by the New York Post in October 2021, after it was examined by former Secret Service agent Konstantinos “Gus” Dimitrelos, a cyber forensics expert. Using a technique he developed called “digital sandwiching,” Dimitrelos said Biden was the only person capable of producing the data emerging from the laptop.

While the hacked iCloud contents have yet to be verified, Dimitrelos did show that Biden’s iCloud had been syncing his data across not only his laptop but also his iPhone and iPad. Hunter’s Apple ID was allegedly on 46 devices since 2011, including multiple computers, phones, tablets, and Apple TVs, many of which could have backed up information to his iCloud.

Information coming out of Hunter’s laptop has illustrated that between November 2018 and March 2019, Joe Biden wired his son $100,000 for his “expenses,” at least $30,000 of which went to pay off delinquent hooker debts.

Various other details have emerged about the president’s son’s drug and prostitution habits. More revelations have also come out concerning Joe Biden’s financing of Hunter’s overseas business deals.

Right before the 2020 presidential election, then-candidate Joe Biden agreed to cover over $800,000 of his son Hunter Biden’s bills, including legal bills that were associated with a Chinese firm. On Thursday it was revealed that the Biden administration sent nearly one million barrels of oil from the US Strategic Petroleum Reserves, to a Chinese energy company in which President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, had a stake as recently as 2015.

(RepublicanWire.org) – As more information comes out from Hunter Biden’s infamous “laptop from hell” new details are being reported by various outlets, Americans are getting an intimate look into the first family, and all it’s scandals.

The laptop that Hunter reportedly abandoned at a computer repair shop in Delaware also contained another bombshell, an angry, bitter letter he wrote but apparently did not send to President Joe Biden that was drafted on Jan. 14, 2017.

In his letter he wrote, “I’ll make it the last time and you can ignore it or i hope at least acknowledge that the three people on earth who have lived their lives in service to you who love you more than the next 30 combined have suddenly all concluded for their own reasons that you have finally crossed the line – that we won’t be publicly and privately humiliated while those that publicly and privately humiliate us.”

“Love is an action dad not an emotion. Think how your brother and sister express their love for you. They do anything you tell them to do and have their whole lives,” his letter continued.

In the letter, Hunter Biden praises his relatives who helped after Joe Biden’s wife was killed in a car crash.

“Mom mom and Aunt Val saved MY life dad they saved Beaus life Dad you saved our lives — i understand the lie serves your purpose Dad but to make two boys who had the three greatest mothers god could conceive taken from them that they had to buy into it or they would be betraying you is pretty awful – because that is not choice we would ever even let sit in our minds a moment.”

At one point in the letter, Hunter Biden appears to stand up strong for his uncle and Joe Biden’s brother, James Biden, in a rambling manner:

Do you who has done more for me been more loyal and is actual embodiment of your line – if you have to ask it’s too late. Uncle Jimmy is the only person I have ever known by a factor of ten that has never asked firs .

1 have seen him take punch after punch in the face from every drowning family member he has saved and when the crowd of gawkers gather around and say wow that was so brave so selfless he without exception says what do you mean that was my brother who not me. Well where did you get the broken nose and black eye- and the whole family says well you know Jim he’s reckless he’s a hothead he leaps before he looks– he’s a lovable tornado. How do you let that stand?

Because it there is one hero in this story that deserves the Medal of Honor for throwing himself on the grenade it’s my uncle and it’s like Groundhog Day no matter how hard he try’s to rewrite the story each time he puts himself back together again it’s the same ending, there’s a grenade in the living room on Christmas Eve and the whole family gathers around and postures and pontificates or hides under the couch or pushes someone in front of them and there’s uncle Jim missing both legs in a wheel chair with one eye and maybe not until Ive seen him do it a hundred times before does he say “come on – guys at least help me out of my chair and this time please don’t make me drive myself to the hospital- get me a cab and I’ll pay you back.”

In conclusion, Hunter Biden wrote: “So dad on arguably the most rewarding day in your career you fail to even say and I want publicly thank the heart and soul of this family the….” — the letter ends suddenly at that point.

(RepublicanWire.org) – The New York Times admitted that the Hunter Biden “laptop from hell” is authentic, and White House press secretary Jen Psaki completely dodged questions on the topic during Thursday’s press briefing.

The New York Times admitted in a Thursday article that Biden’s laptop was indeed authentic, more than a year after many Democrats and much of the media dismissed the New York Post’s reporting as Russian disinformation. Both President Joe Biden and Psaki herself stated at the time that the laptop did not truly belong to Biden and was the product of Russian efforts.

Psaki dodged questions from multiple reporters on the topic, using nearly the same line each time.

“The New York Times has authenticated emails that appear to have come from a laptop abandoned by Hunter Biden in Delaware,” a reporter began. “The president previously said that the New York Post story about this was a bunch of garbage and that it was a Russian plant. Does he stand by that assessment?”

“I’d point you to the Department of Justice and also to Hunter Biden’s representatives. He doesn’t work in the government,” Psaki responded quickly.

Another reporter brought up the issue again later on, this time highlighting Psaki’s own past dismissal of the laptop.

“You in October 2020 dismissed [the laptop], dismissed it as Russian disinformation. Do you stand by that assessment?” a reporter asked.

“I’d point you to the Department of Justice and Hunter Biden’s representatives,” Psaki responded. “I’m a spokesperson for the United States. He doesn’t work for the United States.”
