Hunter Biden’s lawyers demand criminal probe into laptop leakers, Giuliani and others, admit laptop is his
Hunter Biden’s attorneys on Wednesday urged federal and prosecutors across the country to launch criminal investigations into his critics — while acknowledging that the infamous laptop does in fact belong to Hunter.
Biden’s lawyer, Abbe Lowell, wrote letters to the Justice Department and the Delaware Attorney General calling for investigations into Rudy Giuliani, Steve Bannon and John Mac Isaac, who owns the computer repair shop where Biden is said to have left his laptop. Biden’s attorneys also sent cease and desist letters to others who obtained and distributed the contents of the laptop.
Lowell argued in the letters that Mac Isaac and the others had no right to inspect the contents of Biden’s laptop, much less make copies of it to share with the media.
“This failed dirty political ploy led directly to the disclosure, exploitation and manipulation of Mr. Biden’s private and personal information,” Lowell wrote in a letter. “Politicians and the news media have used this unlawfully obtained, copied, distributed and manipulated data to distort the truth and harm Mr. Biden.”
The DOJ did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Fox News Digital.

The letter accused Mac Isaac of “stealing computer services” and Giuliani of “possession of stolen property.”
“Mr. Mac Isaac chose to work with President Donald Trump’s personal attorney to arm Mr. Biden’s personal computer information against his father, Joseph R. Biden, by unlawfully causing Mr. Biden’s personal information to be leaked to the New York Post passed on,” Lowell wrote.
Despite appearances, a source familiar with Lowell’s move argued that Wednesday’s letters do not constitute an admission of the laptop’s validity. Biden’s legal team argues the versions of the laptop released to the public may have been tampered with.

Other House investigations are expected to focus on Hunter’s business dealings. These investigations will likely rely heavily on the contents of the laptop.
