WASHINGTON -- A lawyer for President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, asked the Justice Department in a letter Wednesday to investigate close allies of former President Donald Trump and others who accessed and disseminated personal data from a laptop that a computer repair shop owner says was dropped off at his Delaware store in 2019.
The letter cites passages from Mac Isaac's book in which he admitted reviewing private and sensitive material from Biden's laptop, including a file titled “income.pdf.” It notes that Mac Isaac sent a copy of the laptop data to Giuliani's lawyer, Robert Costello, who in turn shared it with Giuliani, a close ally of Trump's who at the time was pushing discredited theories about the younger Biden.
Giuliani provided the information to a reporter at the New York Post, which first wrote about the laptop, and also to Bannon, according to the letter. Hunter Biden never consented to any of his personal information being accessed or shared in that manner, his lawyer says.
“This failed dirty political trick directly resulted in the exposure, exploitation, and manipulation of Mr. Biden’s private and personal information,” the letter says, adding, “Politicians and the news media have used this unlawfully accessed, copied, distributed, and manipulated data to distort the truth and cause harm to Mr. Biden.”
Mac Isaac declined to comment when reached by The Associated Press on Wednesday evening. Costello, asked to comment on behalf of him and Giuliani, called the letter “a frivolous legal document” and said it “reeks of desperation because they know judgment day is coming for the Bidens."
The letter to the Justice Department was addressed to its top national security official, Matthew Olsen.

The stolen classified documents traveled from DC to Delaware? Uh, oh. Brandon has some 'splainin to do.
Hunter has committed a multitude of crimes. But that’s OK.
A small group of people have tried to investigate Hunter’s criminal activity. That’s not cool.
The people who have investigated Hunter’s crimes should be brought to justice. Get the FBI is on this right away.
Well, son of a bitch.
Once he abandoned the laptop it became the property of the shop owner
The shop owner can do anything he wants with it
The data it contained shows evidence of crimes. Why has he not been arrested yet?
Why is this guy not in prison?
Biden has no standing to call for legal action over its contents.
umm... the laptop proves they were not so 'discredited'
RE: Hunter Biden seeks federal probe of Trump allies over laptop
Damn! I thought that was a Babylon Bee headline.
Not to worry though, the Just-Us Dept. and the American Stasi
will be all over it. Maybe even the CYA and the Pentagon.
Can’t match Democrats in the arrogance department!
Undoubtedly, the corrupt FBI will use the forty agents they should have used to investigate this in the first place.
Hunter has lost several laptops with these types of data.
Does the sensitive and personal information include the child porn stuff on the laptop, or just the classified info in his emails to governments or his business partners, or maybe the how the money that he received was used to pay his fathers bills…….
Hunter should be very specific
The only thing that I expect is more FBI investigating Trump and than looking into the Biden’s.
Could Trump have the DOJ investigate those releasing his Tax information? It’s one thing for Congress to get Trump’s tax returns, but another to release...... 🧐
This is getting surreal.
I’m guessing that Hunters side thinks they can supress the contents of the laptop and focus solely on the computer as property itself.
Don’t you clowns know who his father is?
Now i’ve seen everything. What the hell does Trump have to do with the laptop? Someday, someone needs to tell these jerks to pound sand.
Big Bad Orange Man Took My Laptop!!!!!
"You'll find that VHS cassette right over in the B section, just before 'Debbie Does Dallas.'"
It's a classic!
It’s just a tactic to get everyone to STFU. The actual contents have been distributed and disseminated so many times now that it’s become part of the public domain. It would be if Trump had a CAD order issued after the release of his tax forms. (Cease and Desist)
This is like a thief suing the police for showing a video of him robbing a bank.
