‘Guy’s got a hit squad’: Meet the computer repair shop owner at center of Hunter Biden scandal

The owner of the computer repair shop in Delaware where a laptop containing information about the Biden family was dropped off in April of 2019 spoke with Fox News this Wednesday to tell his side of the story.

As previously reported, in April of 2019 someone showed up to the shop and dropped off a laptop that contained photos and videos of Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden’s son, Hunter. The owner of the shop then handed the laptop to the FBI but also gave a copy of its hard drive to President Donald Trump’s attorney Rudy Giuliani.

Long story short, the laptop eventually wound up with the New York Post, which scoured it for contents and then published them in a bombshell report Wednesday.

Despite the Post’s extensive reporting, numerous questions remain, including “who dropped the laptop off — was it Hunter himself?” The owner of the shop, John Paul Mac Isaac, addressed these questions Wednesday with Fox News reporter Jacqui Heinrich.

Listen via Fox News “The Story“:

“The owner of this shop is legally blind. He uses a monocle to repair computers from a working distance of about eight inches, so he cannot confirm that it was Hunter Biden who in fact dropped off the laptop here he says back in April [2019],” Heinrich reported.

“But he says while he was in the process of transferring data from that computer, he found some disturbing items, including pornography.”

The pornography reportedly included a video of Hunter smoking crack (again) while engaged in a sex act.

“By June and July [of 2019], impeachment was in the headlines, and after 90 days passed and Hunter Biden still had not paid for or picked up his laptop, the owner, John Paul Isaac, who is a registered Republican, keyword searched through the emails and found what appeared to be an email from a Burisma board member asking Hunter Biden for advice on how he could use his influence on the company’s behalf,” Heinrich’s report continued.

The emails blew up across the Internet on Wednesday but were swiftly suppressed by tech giants like Facebook and Twitter.

Another email — this one from 2015 — showed a Burisma executive thanking Hunter for having set up a meeting with his father, then-Vice President Biden. The former VP’s campaign has denied that such a meeting ever occurred, and the mainstream media have labeled these allegations “disinformation.”

After discovering the emails, Isaac contacted the FBI through an intermediary. The agency seized the laptop but never followed up with him afterward. Months later, he now worries the FBI is engaged in a cover-up.

Speaking with Heinerich over why he’d reached out to the FBI, he said he’d been fearful for his life.

The guy’s got a hit squad. I’m afraid of somebody wanting to not make sure that I don’t extort them for money or that I don’t do, you know, things with their computer. They would silence people too. So I was afraid for the owner. I was afraid for the people that are involved, the contents of it. And I just wanted it out of my shop,” he revealed.

Concerned about the lack of any follow-up from the FBI, Isaac eventually reached out to Giuliani through his intermediary and gave him a copy of the hard drive. Months later, Giuliani associate Steven Bannon told the New York Post about the copied hard drive, and then this past Sunday Giulani gave the Post a copy of it.

Ever since the story blew up Wednesday, the entire left-wing establishment — including players in the Democrat Party, the media and the tech industry — have launched a concerted, joint effort to stamp out the story’s legitimacy.

Within hours of the story’s publication, it was smeared as “disinformation” and suppressed by the tech giants, and all without any evidence.

The 218-year-old New York Post’s entire editorial board eventually responded to the controversy by accusing the tech giants, particularly Facebook, of censoring the story “to help Joe Biden’s 2020 campaign.”

“An executive of one of the most powerful media platforms in the country, who brags about his years working as a partisan Democratic operative, publicly boasting of his attempt to keep Americans from learning something embarrassing about the Democratic presidential candidate. And then a major competitor rushes to completely suppress the same story,” the board wrote.

The board added, “Facebook and Twitter are not media platforms. They’re propaganda machines.

According to critics, so are members of the establishment media. In a Twitter thread, conservative commentator Ben Shapiro argued that “[e]ver since Clinton lost in 2016, many in the press have suggested that free dissemination on social media is the problem. They have pressured social media to re-impose, from the top down, the sort of monopoly on informational dissemination that existed pre-internet.”

“This is the kind of crap pushed weekly by Kara Swisher and Kevin Roose at The New York Times. They routinely tweet out lists of highly-trafficked pages on Facebook in order to not-so-subtly imply that Facebook is gaming the system on behalf of conservatives and Trump,” he wrote.

“It’s a lie. And it’s an obvious lie. But it doesn’t matter. All that matters is that social media companies close off access to non-traditional-media, thereby recreating the oligarchy of the mainstream media. That’s not journalism. It’s partisan activism. It should be treated as such.”
