'In a letter demanding probes of the dissemination of Hunter Biden's files, his lawyer appears to admit the underlying data is real... '
After years of disingenuous dissembling, Hunter Biden finally came clean and admitted ownership of the contents from the infamous laptop that he abandoned at a Delaware repair shop and has led to multiple investigations of his and the Biden clan’s dubious personal connections and shady business dealings.
The admission became public when Biden, who along with his presidential pops is under myriad investigations stemming from the contents of the laptop, tried to deflect attention from its alleged damning information with what the New York Post called a “petulant letter from Hunter’s lawyers seeking a criminal probe into what they called, attempts to ‘weaponize’ its contents.
Biden’s lawyers wrote to the Justice Department and the Delaware attorney general requesting investigations into people who the attorneys claimed illegally accessed or disseminated information from the laptop.
The letters claimed that the offenders “violated various statutes, including by making public restricted private information; accessing and disseminating stolen property; and making false statements to Congress.” Among those they want to be targeted are John Paul Mac Isaac, who recovered the laptop, along with Rudy Giuliani and Steve Bannon. The legal ploy is already starting to backfire.
“In a letter demanding probes of the dissemination of Hunter Biden’s files, his lawyer appears to admit the underlying data is real,” noted NYTimes reporter Kenneth P. Vogel.

Biden’s attorney also sent cease and desist letters to Tucker Carlson and Fox News, demanding that they retract information they have reported about Hunter Biden’s links to shady business dealings and his father’s influence peddling.
The legal team also wrote to the IRS requesting a probe into former Trump White House aide Garrett Ziegler, who has posted some of the laptop’s data on his Marco Polo USA website, challenging the tax exempt status of his venture. Ziegler told the Post that the legal threat was a “desperate attempt” by the Biden family to get the spotlight away from “their crimes.”
Giuliani’s personal lawyer, Robert Costello, who was also named in the letters, echoed those claims.
“This letter is a ridiculous attempt to intimidate that will not succeed,” Costello told the Post. “It is the product of desperation by Hunter Biden because they know judgement day is coming for the Biden family.”
