The computer shop owner who discovered the Hunter Biden laptop is now suing Twitter for defamation in a new lawsuit.
John Paul Mac Isaac is the man who owned the computer shop that discovered the infamous Hunter Biden laptop. Now he’s suing the site for what he claims is defamation.
Hunter of course is the son of now President Joe Biden.
“John Paul Mac Isaac has sued Twitter for defamation in connection with the social media giant’s censorship last year of materials gleaned from a laptop that President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, left at a computer repair shop,” Just the News reported.
“Isaac owned the computer repair shop in Delaware called The Mac Shop, and on April 12, 2019 was asked to ‘recover information from damaged Mac computers allegedly owned by Hunter Biden,” Just the News stated.
The Hunter Biden laptop became a focal point of the 2020 Presidential elections as then President Trump hammered the media and Joe Biden about it. Many big name influencers and conservative personalties who’ve claimed to have seen the laptop said it was horrific what was on it.
The computer shop owner as you know turned the laptop over to the FBI, but nothing was ever done with the laptop, or hasn’t been to date.
Now you’re asking yourself, how did Twitter defame the shop owner Isaac, right?
When the news started to make the rounds, Twitter posted a message on the links to the news that stated “We can’t complete this request because this link has been identified by Twitter or our partners as being potentially harmful.”
According to Isaac, he was doing what he was asked to do by whomever dropped off the laptop, and he followed his store and company guidelines perfectly. Isaac even says he called Hunter Biden more than once to come and pick up the laptop, but since the calls went unreturned, as policy states the laptop was not store property if it’s not picked up in the 90 day time frame. Similar to a Pawn Shop’s rules.
The lawsuit first released by our friends at Just The News says that the files were not “hacked” and in fact they were the property of the store.
Look what Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey stated here, even admitting that Twitter got it wrong in writing. Any good attorney will tell you, never put anything in writing.
If you remember, Senator Ted Cruz of Texas even sent a scathing letter to Jack Dorsey.
“Twitter has apparently decided to preemptively censor this report,” Sen. Ted Cruz said. “Twitter is not only prohibiting users from sharing this story on their own accounts, it is prohibiting the New York Post itself from posting its own content.”
It’s an interesting take no doubt to try to sue big tech with section 230 looming over most peoples heads. This case will be very interesting to see how it turns out in the courtroom, and could be a lead in to finally hold big tech accountable for their actions against those they don’t agree with.
