Hunter Biden email story: Computer repair store owner describes handing over laptop to FBI

The man, John Paul Mac Isaac, said he “can’t be 100 percent sure” it was Hunter Biden who dropped off the computer for repair.

The owner of a Delaware computer repair store where a man he believes was Hunter Biden dropped off a laptop that allegedly contained emails detailing an opportunity for a meeting between former Vice President Joe Biden and a top Burisma executive and other "disturbing" items, told Fox News on Wednesday that he was frightened by what he saw.

The man, John Paul Mac Isaac, said he has a condition that affects his vision and “can’t be 100 percent sure” it was Hunter Biden who dropped off the computer for repair. The Wilmington shop owner said he contacted the FBI out of concern, but declined to specify what he meant.

Isaac’s claim that the laptop in question belonged to Hunter Biden has yet to be substantiated. Isaac told the New York Post, which first published the emails earlier Wednesday, that he determined it was Hunter Biden because the laptop had a sticker from the Beau Biden Foundation, which is named after his late older brother.

“I just don't know what to say, or what I'm allowed to say,” Isaac said. “I know that I saw, I saw stuff. And I was concerned. I was concerned that somebody might want to come looking for this stuff eventually and I wanted it out of my shop.”

When asked, Isaac, whose social media posts indicate is a supporter of President Trump, rejected the possibility that the laptop did not belong to Hunter Biden and was an attempt to set him up.

Hunter Biden’s overseas business dealings drew renewed scrutiny following the New York Post’s publication of a 2015 email purportedly exchanged between him and an executive at Ukrainian energy firm Burisma Holdings. At the time, Hunter Biden served on the company’s board of directors.

 

Isaac said the man who he believes to be Hunter Biden dropped off three laptops at his store in April 2019, only one of which was salvageable. While repairing the laptop, Isaac said he discovered disturbing material.

The customer did not return for the laptop within 90 days and Isaac could not get in touch with him. Isaac said he first searched the emails by keyword in June or July of 2019.

“If I'm somebody that has no journalistic ability, no detective ability or investigative ability and I was able to find stuff in a short period of time, somebody else should have been able to find something to show,” Isaac said.

In September, he contacted an intermediary about the emails. The intermediary then contacted the FBI.

Isaac said the intermediary is an American citizen who he has known for decades, but declined to provide further details about their identity.

According to Isaac’s account, the FBI first made a forensic copy of the laptop, then returned weeks later with a subpoena and confiscated it. When he stopped hearing from the FBI, Isaac said he contacted several members of Congress, who did not respond. At that point, his intermediary reached out to Rudy Giuliani’s attorney, Robert Costello.

 

An attorney for Hunter Biden told the New York Post that Giuliani “has been pushing widely discredited conspiracy theories about the Biden family, openly relying on actors tied to Russian intelligence.”

An FBI spokesperson declined Fox News' request for comment, citing the bureau's practice of neither confirming nor denying the existence of an investigation.

Representatives for Delaware's U.S. Attorney's office did not immediately respond to multiple requests for comment. When contacted by the New York Post, a spokesperson for the Delaware U.S. Attorney's office said, “My office can neither confirm nor deny the existence of an investigation."

The New York Post published photos of a Delaware federal subpoena that detailed the FBI's seizure of a laptop and hard drive.

When asked what he hoped would come of the information once it went public, Isaac was ambivalent about his motives. He acknowledged the current political landscape had played a role in his actions and specifically referenced Trump’s impeachment as a motivating factor.

“I wanted -- above all, I wanted safety and security,” Isaac said. “I wanted anonymity. I wanted just to be [able] to wash my hands of it, and like it never happened. And that did not happen.”

In the email published by the New York Post, Vadym Pozharskyi, an adviser to the board of Burisma, thanked Hunter Biden for introducing him to then-Vice President Joe Biden. Less than a year after the meeting took place, Biden is accused of pressuring the Ukrainian government to fire a prosecutor who had launched an investigation into Burisma.

 

“Dear Hunter, thank you for inviting me to DC and giving an opportunity to meet your father and spent [sic] some time together. It’s realty [sic] an honor and pleasure,” the email reads.

In an earlier email from May 2014 which was obtained by Fox News, Pozharskyi, who was said to be Burisma’s No. 3 executive, asked Biden for “advice on how you could use your influence” to help the company.

The Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee is investigating the newly released emails, Fox News confirmed.

The Biden campaign pushed back on the allegations in the report, asserting that a review of the former vice president’s “official schedules from the time” showed that “no meeting, as alleged by the New York Post, ever took place.”

"Investigations by the press, during impeachment, and even by two Republican-led Senate committees whose work was decried as 'not legitimate' and political by a GOP colleague have all reached the same conclusion: that Joe Biden carried out official U.S. policy toward Ukraine and engaged in no wrongdoing,” Biden campaign spokesman Andrew Bates said in a statement. “Trump administration officials have attested to these facts under oath.”

Critics have long alleged that Hunter Biden leveraged his father’s position in the Obama administration to enrich himself in his personal business dealings. The Trump campaign has repeatedly attacked Biden on the campaign trail regarding his son’s conduct.

 

When pressed on the matter by Trump during the first presidential debate last month, Joe Biden again denied Hunter had engaged in any wrongdoing.

“My son did nothing wrong at Burisma. He doesn’t want to let me answer because he knows I have the truth,” Joe Biden said. “His position has been totally, thoroughly discredited -- by the media, by our allies, by the World Bank, by everyone.”

This is false.  The sources are unauthentic. Case closed.   It has all the ear marks of a conspiracy theory....

Rudy Giuliani trying to be important 30 days before the election. He has fallen out of place with Trump and is trying to salvage what is probably unsalvageable. You really think Hunter Biden would pawn computers?  This is a political stunt. Hats off to facebook and twitter for their handling of this.

I disagree with most of what you say above.  BUT, why did the computer shop owner take this to Rudy's lawyer after he didn't hear back from the FBI???  My guess is that Hunter did not drop the computer off...rather, someone that wanted to be anonymous and knew the owner would forward it to officials.

It had to be someone in the Hunter Biden Foundation that knew what Hunter was doing.  That was the stamps on the computer.  With my limited copy skills, Im trying to get the Hunter Biden smoking crack in the tub picture posted. One of his "paramours" had to have recorded it.

It was not Hunter Biden that dropped it off--a computer repair guy whose eyesight is so bad he can't recognize a face?  Baloney.  Computers are made up of all sorts of tiny little components--that man had to be able to see a face.  That's a cop out for how he got his hands on it--so he doesn't need to disclose where it came from.  That said, I believe it is H. Biden's--or has stuff on it that incriminates him-- and that someone close to--or someone that WAS close to-the family is ready to take the Biden's down.  Heck, it could have been done at Princess Kamala or Queen Nancy's behest.

You got a point. Just like Queen Nancy saying the 25th Amendment wasnt for Trump. And now Obama coming out of the woodwork. That's the plan. And people are falling for it.

BOMBSHELL: Giuliani blows the cover off the Hunter Biden 'conspiracy'

This blow hard lawyer is not one of my favorite people for sure.

He done great things for his city back in the day. He cleaned up a terrible mess and empowered law enforcement to make it happen.

Since he hooked up with Trump he kinda bothers me because I think he is riding on Trump's shirttail making big bucks and playing the middle ground.

BUT, there is always a butt, I have listened to him on FOX for a couple of years on and off..  He always said his investigation was turning up some shocking stuff. I passed it off as grandstanding like most people. FOX was his stage for his ego. He never wavered on what he thought he had.

Another butt, maybe he actually has the proof. 

I hope so. 

AMERICA does not need the Biden's. The Clinton's are bad enough and their puppet Obama played along.

Our country needs all the truth exposed and severe penalties handed out to those that took advantage of the citizens of this country.

It's time to clean house.

GET IT DONE.

A lot of far fetched comments in the article but, I would guess the shop owner is trying not to get “suicided” Clinton style. 
Im not a conspiracy person but really think about the last 11 months of events. 
 

China virus becomes global news

China virus hits US 10 months before an election that at the time had an economy that had been the strongest in over a decade. 
 

The sitting President is labeled as a racist and xenophobe for wanting to limit travel to the US to combat the virus. 
 

States are forced to shut down businesses and this brings the economy to a screeching halt across the US. 
 

When polled, 79% of Americans list the economy as one of the top priorities when it comes to electing a president. 
 

This is all to coincidental when talking politics. Whether you’re a Democratic, Republican, or Independent; this wouldn’t bode well for a sitting President at election time.

Someone needs to get their arms around this story quickly.  Giuliani said that his lawyer vetted the shop owner and information for over 2 weeks....NYP vetted the information on their own for over a week...I trust they did their jobs because they were aware of the backlash and it's all true.  The FBI and/or the DOJ need to make a statement on it's credibility.  Is this real or is it not?  

After that, I want to know what the FBI was doing with the information on the computer and did they notify anyone.  Biden must answer questions about these.  But first, someone needs to ask him.

:goodpost:My worry is that people arent voting for Biden but Anti Trump.       If that happens, people are going to find out in a year or year and half what they did.  Open boarders. higher taxes (On everybody), diminished free speech(Already happening on Social media.)     Corporate regulations that will close jobs.  They are predicting food prices to go up 200-300%.   By the time people find it out , too late.   I look at the small business owners. I use to be one. (lawncare)  $400,000 in gross revenues is nothing.      And they are going to get hit. Like lawncare and landscaping.      After equipment, supplies, and employee salaries( lets sat 5 people)  that doesnt leave the owner really that much.  The American Way is to make money after paying FAIR taxes.       Go Dubois Jeff would be  better able to explain this.

2 tbsp olive oil (I substituted butter because... butter)

1tbsp kosher salt

1tbsp black pepper

1 tbsp chopped rosemary

2 tsp chopped thyme

2 tsp chopped dill

4 garlic cloves minced (I substituted minced garlic from a jar because I keep it on hand. The moisture actually helped turn the rub into kind of a paste that clung to the chicken)
 

Oh... :sorry:

It was a legitimate question. I’ve been on here for decades. I thought a decision had been made to keep politics separate, guess that’s not the case anymore.

Steve's site, he can post what he wants where he wants to post it. Why question It?
