Hunter Biden’s legal team have called for federal and state law enforcement agencies to open criminal investigations into individuals involved in the sharing of the contents on his infamous laptop, which was first revealed by computer repair shop owner John Paul Mac Isaac to The New York Post in October 2020.
In a letter sent to the Department of Justice, Delaware Attorney General and IRS, Hunter Biden’s counsel confirmed that the laptop and its contents belong to Hunter Biden. According to Mac Isaac, he had taken possession of the laptop in 2019 and tried to get in contact with Hunter Biden multiple times before going public with the information found on it.
In a letter sent to the Department of Justice, the Delaware Attorney General and the IRS, Hunter Biden’s legal team have requested an investigation into individuals allegedly linked to the sharing of his laptop data. The lawyers highlighted that 18 U.S. Code § 119, which prohibits making public confidential information about a “covered person” such as Hunter Biden who is part of the President’s immediate family, had potentially been violated by John Paul Mac Isaac, Costello, Giuliani, Bannon, Ziegler, Maxey and Apelbaum. They also claimed that other federal laws may have been broken including Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, Stored Communications Act and National Stolen Property Act.
