(VitalNews.org) – Hunter Biden, President Joe Biden’s youngest and only surviving son, has waffled on the question of whether the laptop abandoned in John Paul Mac Isaac’s computer shop in Wilmington, Delaware, belonged to him. The budding artist and recovering addict has dodged a straight answer since the New York Post broke the story about the computer and its salacious contents on October 14, 2020. Yet, Hunter Biden just admitted the quiet part out loud.
On Wednesday, February 1, Biden’s attorney, Abbe Lowell, submitted a letter to Matthew Olsen, the Assistant Attorney General for National Security within the Department of Justice (DOJ). Kathy Jennings, Delaware’s attorney general, received a similar letter. On Biden’s behalf, Lowell requested that the DOJ and the Delaware Department of Justice open an investigation into a group of people who Lowell claims violated various federal and state laws to obtain and disseminate Biden’s personal information. Specifically, the lawyer claimed the individuals gained and used Biden’s laptop computer data without his permission — tacitly admitting ownership of the laptop for the first time.

In an attempt to hedge the backdoor admission of ownership, Lowell told CBS News the letters “do not confirm Mac Isaac’s or others’ versions of a so-called laptop.”
The letters named several people who allegedly accessed, copied, circulated, advertised, and misconstrued Biden’s personal data for political and personal gain without Biden’s knowledge or consent. They referred to Mac Isaac, Robert Costello, Rudy Giuliani, Steve Bannon, Garrett Ziegler, Jack Maxey, and Yaacov Apelbaum as key players in depriving Biden of his privacy.
Conservative watchdog organizations like Protect the Public’s Trust and the American Accountability Foundation suggest the younger Biden has once again created a conflict of interest for his father by asking executive branch agencies under the president’s purview to investigate those critical of him.
Pete McGinnis of the Functional Government Initiative noted how inopportune Hunter Biden’s timing was. Asking the DOJ to investigate and intervene in light of recent headlines about the weaponization of the FBI and other government entities against political enemies, coupled with the ongoing controversy over the laptop, is like knowingly asking the administration to take a punch.
