I guess we should have expected this kind of craziness from Hunter Biden. He filed a “curious” countersuit on Friday against the Delaware computer repairman, John Paul Mac Isaac. This is the man who claimed to have worked on Hunter’s personal computer back in 2019.
The president’s son is alleging that Mac Isaac illegally obtained and distributed his “electronically stored data,” thereby invading his privacy.
But here’s where it gets crazy, Hunter’s attorneys insist that the legal action does not serve as proof that the laptop is real.
“This is not an admission by Mr. Biden that Mac Isaac (or others) in fact possessed any particular laptop containing electronically stored data belonging to Mr. Biden,” the first footnote in the 42-page countersuit filed in Delaware states. “Rather, Mr. Biden simply acknowledges that at some point, Mac Isaac obtained electronically stored data, some of which belonged to Mr. Biden.”
So, these high-powered lawyers are asserting that if Hunter’s laptop did exist, then Mac Isaac broke the law by accessing data instead of securing it.
Mac Isaac has claimed that Hunter dropped off his laptop and never returned it. He also claimed that Biden signed a contract stating that any equipment left after 90 days would become Mac Isaac’s possession.
“At no time did Mr. Biden grant Mac Isaac any permission to access, review, copy, or disseminate for his own purposes any electronically stored data that ever was created or received or maintained by Mr. Biden (regardless of how Mac Isaac came into possession of such material),” the countersuit claims.
“In or before April 2019, Counterclaim Defendant Mac Isaac, by whatever means, came into possession of certain electronically stored data, at least some of which belonged to Counterclaim Plaintiff Biden,” his attorneys wrote.
So just in case the laptop really does exist, Hunter’s trying to cover his bases.
Sounds like a Biden.
…This is rather a curious countersuit. Hunter left his his computer with a third party, refused repeated request to retrieve them, and agreed that he would lose all claim to the files if abandoned. Now, years later, he is objecting vehemently that his privacy was not protected.
