Hunter Biden Accuses Delaware Computer Repairman Of ‘Invading’ His Privacy In Countersuit

Hunter Biden has countersued a Delaware-based computer repairman, alleging that John Paul Mac Isaac violated his privacy by accessing and disseminating data held in Biden’s laptop.

Biden’s attorneys filed the suit in response to a lawsuit Mac Isaac filed against Biden in late January, according to ABC News. Mac Isaac sued Biden for defamation, claiming that the son of the U.S. president unfairly and illegally targeted Mac Isaac and damaged his reputation for years with repeated claims that a laptop Biden left at Mac Isaac’s repair store could have been stolen or hacked.

Biden’s 42-page suit, filed on Friday, describes how the laptop became the center of a series of stories beginning in October 2020 about Biden’s life and overseas business dealings in countries such as Ukraine and China. The laptop is now a key component of House Republicans’ investigations into President Joe Biden.

“[Hunter] Biden had more than a reasonable expectation of privacy that any data that he created or maintained … would not be accessed, copied, disseminated, or posted on the Internet for others to use against him or his family or for the public to view,” Biden’s suit says.
