On Thursday, Hunter Biden arrived at his deposition at Fort Lesley J. McNair in Washington, DC as part of a defamation lawsuit filed against him by the Delaware laptop repair shop that worked on his “Laptop from Hell.”
Biden is set to be questioned under oath today and forced to confirm that he did, in fact, own the laptop that contained damning emails and explicit photographs.
The owner of the computer repair shop, John Paul Mac Isaac, filed a defamation against Biden in October of last year, alleging that his reputation was damaged after Biden lied and said the computer did not belong to him. Biden filed a countersuit in March that alleged Mac Isaac illegally distributed Biden’s personal data, accusing him of six counts of invasion of privacy.
Mac Isaac has alleged that Biden dropped off his personal laptop for repairs in 2020, and did not return to retrieve the laptop after 90 days. The store owner also claimed that he made every effort to contact the owner of the laptop but was ultimately unable to get in contact with him.
The computer repair shop owner had reported the contents of the laptop to the FBI after he found messages that incriminated Hunter and then-Vice President Joe Biden for influence-peddling. He also found videos and photos of Hunter using illicit drugs and having sex with prostitutes.
According to Mac Isaac, the FBI made a forensic copy of the laptop and then later returned to confiscate it.
Mac Isaac is seeking $1.5 million in damages.
This lawsuit is just one of the many legal battles Biden is involved in.
Last week, Biden pled guilty to two misdemeanor tax violations following an IRS investigation. By pleading guilty to these charges, Biden was able to receive a sweetheart plea deal and avoid prosecution tied to foreign bribery.
An IRS whistleblower later released WhatsApp messages showing Biden shaking down a Chinese businessman in 2017. Biden wrote, “I am sitting here with my father, and we would like to understand why the commitment made has not been fulfilled. Tell the Director that I would like to resolve this now before it gets out of hand, and now means tonight!”
