Hunter Biden is exploiting his family's ties to the attorney general of Delaware to push her office to investigate the computer shop owner who first brought his abandoned laptop to light.
In a letter, Wednesday, Biden's attorney Abbe Lowell urged Delaware attorney general Kathy Jennings to investigate John Paul Mac Isaac, the owner of a Delaware computer repair shop who turned Biden’s laptop over to the FBI in 2019. Lowell claims Isaac’s handling of the laptop "resulted in the exposure, exploitation, and manipulation of Mr. Biden’s private and personal information." He said it warrants "a full investigation" and "may merit prosecution."
"It is not a common thing for a private person and his counsel to seek someone else being investigated, but the actions and motives here require it," Lowell wrote to Jennings.
Biden’s aggressive new legal strategy could pose a conflict of interest issues should the attorney general take up the probe. Jennings had served under the president’s late son, Beau Biden when he was Delaware's attorney general. She touted an endorsement from President Joe Biden during her 2018 campaign.
"I’ve known Joe, Jill, and the Biden family for most of my life. Joe is one of the kindest and most genuine people I’ve ever known," Jennings wrote in an April 2019 Facebook post, which also included a picture of her sandwiched between Joe and Jill Biden.
Hunter has ample incentive to cast doubt on how the laptop became public.
Emails, text messages, and photos from the device provide deep insight into both Hunter’s foreign business dealings and his descent into drug and sex addiction.
The Washington Free Beacon has published numerous stories about his business activity in China and Ukraine, as well as efforts to lobby the Obama-Biden administration on behalf of his foreign clients. Other records from the laptop show that Hunter Biden had access to properties where Joe Biden stored classified documents after his stint as vice president.
