A New York Post story alleged on October 14 that Hunter Biden dropped off a laptop at a Delaware computer store for repair and that it had scandalous emails and photos. The story states “before turning over the gear, the shop owner says, he made a copy of the hard drive and later gave it to former Mayor Rudy Giuliani’s lawyer, Robert Costello.”

The article alleged that Hunter had set up a meeting between a top executive at a Ukrainian energy firm on which he served and his father – then the Vice President. As per the story, the person who brought in the water-damaged MacBook Pro for repair never paid for the service or retrieved it and the shop owner tried to contact the client several times. The report also states that “The shop owner couldn’t positively identify the customer as Hunter Biden, but said the laptop bore a sticker from the Beau Biden Foundation, named after Hunter’s late brother and former Delaware attorney general.”

Now, one of The Daily Beast journalists was among the reporters who spoke with the shop owner, John Paul Mac Isaac, who lives in Wilmington, Delaware. According to The Daily Beast story, Issac seemed to be nervous throughout. And supposedly, he repeated a few times that he was scared for his life and for the lives of those he loved. The story claims that the owner wasn’t clear in stating the timeline of the laptop arriving at his shop and its disappearance from it. As per the report, he also said the impeachment of President Donald Trump was a “sham.”

The article further states that Issac claimed he had a medical condition that prevented him from actually seeing who dropped off the laptop. However, he alleged it to be Hunter Biden’s because of a sticker related to the Beau Biden Foundation that was on it. Allegedly, during the interview, the owner went back and forth from saying he reached out to law enforcement after looking at the files in the laptop to claiming that it was actually the FBI that got in touch with him. The article alleges at one point Isaac claimed that he was sending emails to someone from the FBI about the laptop. But again claimed that a special agent from the Baltimore office had contacted him after he notified the FBI about the device’s existence. However, he also said the FBI reached out to him for “help accessing his drive.”

Issac stated the reason behind making a copy of the hard drive was personal protection. “They probably knew I had a copy because I was pretty vocal about not wanting to get murdered,” he said, “so I’m going to have a copy.” When he was asked specifically about “whether he had been in contact with Rudy Giuliani before the laptop drop-off or at any other time before the Post’s publication”, Issac did not answer. But when he was prodded further about his connection with Giuliani, he said, “When you’re afraid and you don’t know anything about the depth of the waters that you’re in, you want to find a lifeguard.” When reporters asked if Giuliani was his lifeguard, he answered, “No comment.”

Meanwhile, as reported by Politico, Biden campaign spokesman Andrew Bates said in a statement, “We have reviewed Joe Biden's official schedules from the time and no meeting, as alleged by the New York Post, ever took place.”  "Investigations by the press, during impeachment, and even by two Republican-led Senate committees whose work was decried as 'not legitimate' and political by a GOP colleague have all reached the same conclusion: that Joe Biden carried out official U.S. policy toward Ukraine and engaged in no wrongdoing. Trump administration officials have attested to these facts under oath,” Bates said. He also added that the Biden campaign could not immediately respond to the story’s allegations because the publication “never asked the Biden campaign about the critical elements of this story. They certainly never raised that Rudy Giuliani — whose discredited conspiracy theories and alliance with figures connected to Russian intelligence have been widely reported — claimed to have such materials.”
