Man who found Hunter Biden’s laptop launches defamation lawsuit

Just weeks before 2020’s presidential election, the New York Post caused shockwaves when it reported on a laptop which belonged to Hunter Biden.

That led to the computer repairman who found the device being accused of spreading disinformation. He’s now ready to hit back with a lawsuit targeting several media outlets and one high-profile Democrat.   

Former computer store owner seeking $1 million in damages

According to The Washington Times, Delaware computer technician John Paul Mac Isaac has filed a defamation suit for $1 million in damages against CNN, Politico, The Daily Beast, and California Rep. Adam Schiff.

Isaac’s suit alleges that Schiff, who currently serves as chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, falsely accused him of participating in a Russian “smear campaign” during an interview with CNN.

Also at issue is a Daily Beast article in which Isaac was said to have stolen the laptop. Isaac contends the device was voluntarily dropped off in April of 2019 at his repair shop where it was forgotten about.

What’s more, Isaac object to a piece published by Politico in which dozens of former intelligence officials had labeled the story as “Russian disinfo.”

In its coverage, the Post revealed that the laptop contained images showing Hunter Biden using illegal drugs and engaging in sex acts with prostitutes.

It also detailed a collection of messages in which Biden and his associates discuss their business dealings with foreign entities.

“People just assumed I was a thief or a hacker”

Although Twitter and other big tech platforms attempted to suppress discussion of the laptop, mainstream media outlets like The New York Times have since confirmed its authenticity.

This week, Isaac made an appearance on Fox News host Tucker Carlson’s show where he told the host that negative publicity surrounding the case has forced him out of business.

“Initially people just assumed that I was a hacker or a thief, mainly because of Twitter labeling the material from the laptop as being hacked and then banning the subject matter completely,” he explained.

Isaac went on to say that defamatory comments from Schiff and the defendants in his lawsuit made it impossible for him to continue earning a living.
