Are Hunter Biden and his attorneys in trouble for breaking the law? That is the question that is being asked by lawyers for John Paul Mac Isaac, the beleaguered former owner of the computer repair shop where Hunter Biden abandoned his infamous MacBook.
In a recent letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland and his Delaware counterpart Kathy Jennings, Mac Isaac’s lawyers allege that Hunter’s attorney Abbe Lowell potentially violated federal and state laws by “knowingly using false information to report an alleged crime and allowing that information to be disseminated to the media.”
The false information in question was Lowell’s claim that the shop owner unlawfully accessed and copied Hunter Biden’s laptop data without his consent. Mac Isaac’s attorney, Brian Della Rocca, claims that Hunter Biden signed off on a work authorization while at The Mac Shop on April 12, 2019 and that when he failed to retrieve his laptop and the hard drive to which the data was recovered more than 90 days later, it became abandoned property so Mac Isaac could dispose of it as he saw fit.
Mac Isaac’s lawyers also denied Lowell’s claim that Mac Isaac unlawfully shared the laptop with allies of former President Donald Trump and profited from doing so, saying Mac Isaac never disseminated the laptop’s contents to the media or made a dime out of it.
Della Rocca also fired back at Lowell’s claim that Mac Isaac, who is legally blind, could not have identified Hunter Biden as the person who dropped the laptop off at his store in April 2019. He said that while Mac Isaac’s visual disability may have created a difficulty in identifying Hunter Biden in the beginning, to argue that his visual disability prevented him from using his other senses and his intelligence to identify his customer shows a level of ignorance and discrimination towards people living with difficulties.
Della Rocca also suggested that the federal Department of Justice and its Delaware counterpart should investigate Hunter and Lowell over the false complaint. He said that such an inquiry could resolve many of the lies being levied at Mac Isaac.
This blog post has explored the allegations that Hunter Biden and his attorneys may have broken the law by using false information to report that his laptop had been “stolen”. It has also examined the response from Mac Isaac’s lawyers, who have denied the false claims and argued that Hunter Biden gave consent for Mac Isaac to access the laptop for repairs at his shop and that it was later abandoned.
It is clear that this is a complicated and ongoing legal case that has serious implications for all involved. We will have to wait and see what the outcome of this case is, but one thing is for certain: the truth will come out in the end.
