Hunter Biden attorney Abbe Lowell has deposed John Paul Mac Isaac – the computer repair shop owner who turned a laptop belonging to the president’s son over to authorities and members of the press – in Delaware on Thursday, a person familiar with the matter tells Fox News.
The development was first reported by Axios and is part of a countersuit President Biden’s son has filed against Isaac, which alleges he illegally distributed Hunter’s personal data and accuses him of six counts of invasion of privacy.
In 2020, Isaac said a man who he believed 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 2019.
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.
