Repair Shop Owner Breaks Silence on Biden Laptop

A Delaware computer repair shop owner described in an interview what he found on a laptop that allegedly belonged to Hunter Biden last year and how he felt when he discovered its “disturbing” contents.

John Paul Mac Isaac, who owns The Mac Shop in Wilmington, Delaware, told Fox News he can’t be certain that it was Hunter Biden who dropped off the computer last April, as he has a visual impairment, but he is certain the computer did belong to the former vice president’s son.

He also spoke about what was on the computer’s hard drive and how he felt when he discovered it.

Isaac said he obtained ownership of the computer after the person who dropped it off, presumably Hunter Biden, failed to return for the hardware within 90 days to pay for work done on it.

The laptop in question was one of three computers, but the other two were in a state that prevented them from being salvaged, Isaac said.

The Delaware man said the computer he was able to access had a Beau Biden Foundation sticker on it; the foundation is named after the former vice president’s late son, Beau.

Issac said he contacted the FBI about the computer and its contents through a third party in September 2019 and was hesitant in the interview to discuss the issue openly.

“I just don’t know what to say, or what I’m allowed to say,” Isaac told Fox News.

“I know that I saw, I saw stuff. And I was concerned. I was concerned that somebody might want to come looking for this stuff eventually and I wanted it out of my shop.”

Issac also referred those the “stuff” on the computer as “disturbing.”

He said the bureau sent someone to make a forensic copy of the hard drive and later confiscated it with a subpoena.

Isaac said the FBI stopped contacting him, which led him to try, in vain, to contact several members of Congress. Eventually, he contacted Robert Costello, who is the attorney for Giuliani.

The computer shop owner, an apparent supporter of President Donald Trump, denied he is involved in any attempt to set up the Democratic nominee’s son, and he also ruled out any possibility that the computer did not belong to Hunter Biden.

Issac said he pored over the computer its contents by doing a keyword search in the summer of 2019.

“If I’m somebody that has no journalistic ability, no detective ability or investigative ability and I was able to find stuff in a short period of time, somebody else should have been able to find something to show,” he told Fox News.

Issac apparently made his own copy of the hard drive, which is the source for the Post’s reporting.

He told Fox News that given the country’s political landscape, he found the computer’s contents to be of public interest, specifically citing the House’s partisan impeachment of Trump.

Isaac said he did not want to be in the spotlight.

“I wanted — above all, I wanted safety and security,” he said. “I wanted anonymity. I wanted just to be [able] to wash my hands of it, and like it never happened. And that did not happen.”
