Prosecutors Claim Hunter Biden Is Lost In Conspiracy Theories, Again Confirms Laptop Is Authentic

Federal prosecutors further dismissed “conspiracy theories” pushed by Hunter Biden regarding the laptop he left at a computer store, which authorities say is genuine, adding that the contents on the device matched what had previously been obtained through a search warrant on the president’s son’s Apple iCloud account.

The Department of Justice said in the court filings that the IRS and FBI obtained a search warrant for tax violations in August 2019 and gained access to Hunter’s iCloud account.

In 2020, John Paul Mac Isaac, the computer repair shop owner who turned over the laptop belonging to the president’s son to authorities and members of the press, said a man he believed to be Hunter dropped off three laptops at his store in April 2019. Mac Isaac could not contact the customer and first searched the emails by keyword in June or July 2019.

The laptop saga began in October 2020 when the New York Post reported about a 2015 email from a Ukrainian energy executive to Hunter, thanking him for introducing him to his father, that it obtained from the hard drive of Hunter’s laptop. Joe Biden was vice president at the time of the message while his son held a lucrative position on the board of Burisma, a Ukrainian energy firm raising concerns of attempted influence-peddling with his powerful father.
