(Headline USA) Hunter Biden filed a countersuit against the Delaware computer-repair-shop owner who handled his abandoned laptop, claiming his private information was improperly obtained and disseminated.
Biden’s response alleges Mac Isaac illegally released his laptop to conservatives such as Rudy Giuliani—-at the time serving as a private legal advisor to then-President Donald Trump—without his consent.
The suit asks for six counts to be raised against Mac Isaac:
- invasion of privacy by intrusion
- invasion of privacy by publication of private facts/matters
- conspiracy to invade privacy by intrusion
- conspiracy to invade privacy by publication of private facts/matters
- aiding and abetting an invasion of privacy by intrusion
- aiding and abetting intrusion of privacy by publication of private facts/matters
Biden is seeking a trial by jury. He cites a Delaware law that says abandoned property cannot be considered another person’s property until a period of one year. The law also holds that the courts must decide who is the proper owner.
“Contrary to Mac Isaac’s Repair Authorization form, Delaware law provides that tangible personal property is deemed abandoned when ‘the rightful owner has left in the care or custody of another person and has failed to maintain, pay for the storage of, exercise dominion or control over, and has failed to otherwise assert or declare the ownership rights to the property for a period of 1 year,'” Biden’s countersuit reads.
“The procedure to obtain lawful title to abandoned personal property requires the person in possession of the property to file a petition in a court of competent jurisdiction,” it continues. “Other obligations must then also be satisfied before obtaining lawful title, such as the court sending notice to the owner and the petitioner posting notice in five or more public places, and advertising the petition in a newspaper.”
Biden also argues that the only form he signed was one turning over his equipment—not his data.
“In fact, the Repair Authorization form states that the Mac Shop will make every effort to ‘secure your data…'” the suit says.
“Customers who sign Mac Isaac’s Repair Authorization form do not, therefore, waive any rights under Delaware law for the data that any equipment might contain,” it says. “Reputable computer companies and repair people routinely delete personal data contained on devices that are exchanged, left behind, or abandoned. They do not open, copy, and then provide that data to others, as Mac Isaac did here.”
The hard drive, which Mac Isaac handed over to the FBI also, implicates Biden in several serious crimes—including felony drug use, possession of an illegal firearm, solicitation of prostitutes and child pornography.
It also offered tangible evidence to confirm the Biden family’s corrupt influence-peddling deals with foreign nations including Ukraine and China.
According to the New York Post, which first broke the laptop story, 79% of poll respondents said that truthful reporting about the laptop prior to the 2020 election would have impacted the final outcome.
