(Headline USA) Hunter Biden allegedly hacked into his sister-in-law’s cellphone and stole her personal data more than a dozen times between 2017 and 2018 without her consent, adding to an already long list of transgressions linked to the wayward crack addict.
A forensic evaluation of Hunter Biden’s abandoned laptop shows that Hunter Biden possessed data from iPhones owned by Hallie Biden, the widow of his deceased brother Beau Biden, with whom he had an affair. He obtained text messages, photos, notes, call logs, her calendar, and more than 120 voicemails, according to the Washington Examiner.
Records on the laptop hard drive show that Hunter Biden bought a program called Dr. Fone on May 6, 2017 that was used to extract personal data from Hallie Biden’s phones. He likely hard-wired Hallie Biden’s phones to his computer each time he used the program to extract her data, according to the investigation.
Most of these phone calls and messages were personal in nature. In one exchange, for example, Hunter Biden accused Hallie Biden of cheating on him with a man named David Walsh.
“You are heartless and I will not be treated like second fiddle to not only beau but now fucking David,” Hunter texted Hallie Biden on April 28, 2017.
“I think your affair with David started innocently enough. … The truth is sex is irrelevant David is irrelevant the only thing I cannot abide by is the lie and then the lie about the lie and on and on.”
Some of the other exchanges, however, suggest Hallie Biden was aware of Hunter Biden’s shady foreign business dealings.
“He is at the hotel still dealing with the Chinese and meetings,” Hallie Biden texted one of Hunter Biden’s children on May 7, 2017, less than a week after Hunter’s former business partner Tony Bobulinski said he met Hunter and Joe Biden in person to discuss a potential business deal with the now-defunct Chinese energy conglomerate CEFC.
An ethics watchdog group said Hunter Biden could be liable to civil and even criminal charges if he stole Hallie Biden’s information without consent.
“Hunter Biden’s downloading of voicemails, text messages, and other data from Hallie’s cellphone, if done without her permission, could expose him to both criminal and civil liability under federal and state law,” said Paul Kamenar, an attorney with the National Legal and Policy Center.
“This would not be surprising behavior from someone who shows little regard for tax laws, drug laws, and other legal requirements.”
