Hunter Biden is set to undergo a deposition as part of a civil lawsuit filed by John Paul Mac Isaac, the owner of a Delaware computer repair shop. This legal battle has added another layer of complexity to Hunter Biden’s already tumultuous situation.
The lawsuit, initiated by Mac Isaac in October 2022, accuses Hunter Biden of defamation. In response, Hunter Biden filed a countersuit in March, alleging that Mac Isaac unlawfully distributed his personal data and invaded his privacy.
The roots of this legal dispute trace back to 2019 when Mac Isaac claimed that Hunter Biden dropped off three laptops at his store, only one of which could be salvaged. While repairing the laptop, Mac Isaac stumbled upon troubling material.
However, Hunter Biden failed to retrieve the laptop within the designated time, making it difficult for Mac Isaac to reach him. In June or July 2019, Mac Isaac conducted a keyword search of the laptop’s emails.
The involvement of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) came into play when they made a forensic copy of the laptop and later returned with a subpoena to confiscate it. Mac Isaac himself received a subpoena in December 2019 to testify in the U.S. District Court in Delaware, further complicating the situation.
The FBI’s property receipt for the laptop, obtained by Fox News Digital in 2020, contained a handwritten number in the “Case ID” section: 272D-BA-3065729. The number “272” refers to the FBI’s classification for money laundering, while “272D” specifically denotes “Money Laundering, Unknown SUA—White Collar Crime Program.” This revelation raises questions about potential financial implications related to Hunter Biden’s activities.
Adding to Hunter Biden’s legal challenges, the recent announcement by the Justice Department regarding his plea agreement in his tax affairs adds another layer of scrutiny. Hunter Biden is expected to plead guilty to two misdemeanor counts of willful failure to pay federal income tax. This agreement, coupled with a pretrial diversion agreement for a separate charge of firearm possession, aims to keep him out of prison.
In the midst of these developments, an IRS whistleblower has come forward with significant allegations. Gary Shapley Jr., the IRS investigation supervisor, testified that federal investigators were aware in December 2019 that Hunter Biden’s laptop was unaltered and contained reliable evidence.
However, they faced obstacles in accessing all the available information. This revelation raises concerns about the suppression of crucial evidence and casts doubt on previous claims dismissing the laptop as part of a Russian disinformation campaign.
As the legal battles involving Hunter Biden continue, the depositions and court appearances in the coming weeks are expected to provide further insight. The American public eagerly awaits the truth amidst these unfolding events.
