Hunter Biden, the son of President Joe Biden, finds himself facing mounting legal troubles as he prepares for an upcoming deposition in a civil lawsuit brought by Delaware computer repair shop owner John Paul Mac Isaac. This latest development only adds to the growing list of legal battles surrounding Hunter Biden.
The lawsuit, filed by Mac Isaac in October 2022, alleges defamation on the part of Hunter Biden. In a surprising turn of events, Hunter Biden responded by filing a countersuit in March, accusing Mac Isaac of illicitly distributing his personal data and invading his privacy. The legal clash between the two parties has escalated since then.
The story began in 2019 when Mac Isaac claimed that a man he believed to be Hunter Biden dropped off three laptops at his store, one of which was salvageable. While repairing the laptop, Mac Isaac came across disturbing material that raised eyebrows and fueled speculation. However, the customer failed to retrieve the laptop within the specified time, leaving Mac Isaac unable to reach him. It was in June or July 2019 that Mac Isaac decided to search the laptop’s emails using keywords.
The involvement of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) further complicated the situation. According to Mac Isaac, the FBI made a forensic copy of the laptop and returned weeks later with a subpoena, confiscating it. In December 2019, Mac Isaac himself was subpoenaed to testify before the U.S. District Court in Delaware, marking a significant turn in the case.
One of the key pieces of evidence in this case is the FBI’s property receipt for the laptop, obtained by Fox News Digital in 2020. The receipt contained a handwritten number in the “Case ID” section: 272D-BA-3065729.
This number is significant as “272” is the FBI’s classification for money laundering, while “272D” specifically refers to “Money Laundering, Unknown SUA—White Collar Crime Program.” The implications of this classification raise serious concerns about potential financial misconduct associated with Hunter Biden.
On top of his ongoing legal battles, Hunter Biden recently made headlines with his plea agreement in his tax affairs. He is expected to plead guilty to two misdemeanor counts of willful failure to pay federal income tax. In a deal that aims to keep him out of prison, Hunter Biden has also agreed to enter into a pretrial diversion agreement concerning a separate charge of possession of a firearm. The details of this agreement have raised questions and stirred controversy.
Meanwhile, an IRS whistleblower, Gary Shapley Jr., has come forward with explosive allegations. Shapley, the supervisor of the investigation at the IRS, testified that federal investigators were aware as early as December 2019 that Hunter Biden’s laptop was “not manipulated in any way” and contained “reliable evidence.”
However, they faced obstacles and were obstructed from accessing all the available information. This revelation casts doubt on the previous claims that the laptop was part of a Russian disinformation campaign, made by former intelligence officials and even Joe Biden himself.
As the legal proceedings unfold, the upcoming deposition of Hunter Biden is expected to shed more light on the allegations against him. The American public eagerly awaits the truth and justice in this complex case. Stay tuned for further updates on this ongoing legal saga.
