The Delaware computer repair shop owner who alerted feds of incriminating emails, text messages, photos and financial documents on Hunter Biden’s laptop in 2020 says he’s since lost his store and now faces bankruptcy, after being victimized in an intimidation campaign once his findings went public.
‘I was getting a lot of death threats,’ John Paul Mac Isaac, owner of The Mac Shop in Wilmington, told The New York Post Saturday.
The paper broke the story of the contents of the laptop in October 2020, which came into Mac Isaac’s possession after an ‘inebriated’ Biden brought it in for repairs in April 2019 and never picked it back up, the 45-year-old store owner says.
Files found in Biden’s personal computer included emails showing shady business dealings by the current US president’s son with foreign officials, and texts that showed him repeatedly using the ‘N-word’ and accidentally overpaying a prostitute $25,000 from an account linked to his dad.
It also uncovered a 2015 effort by Biden to set up a meeting between Vadym Pozharskyi, an adviser at a Ukrainian energy firm, and then-vice President Joe Biden, and other instances of Biden looking to cash in on his family connections.
After the Post broke the story of the laptop’s contents, Mac said the in-person threats got so bad, that he had to enlist local police to provide him with round-the-clock protection.
‘There were multiple situations where people came in and you could tell they were not there to have a computer fixed,’ Mac Isaac said.
‘If there were not other people in the shop, I don’t know what would have happened,’ he told The Post. ‘I was having vegetables, eggs, dog s–t thrown at the shop every morning.
‘I had to have a Wilmington trooper parked in front of my shop all the time,’ he revealed to the paper.
Scottish-American John Paul Mac Isaac, owner of The Mac Shop in Wilmington, Delaware, says he received death threats after handing over a laptop left by an ‘inebriated’ Hunter Biden in his store to feds in April 2019, spurring him to flee the state and lose his business
The store, founded by Mac Isaac in 2010, went under after reports of incriminating content on the laptop surfaced in October 2020 forced the computer repairman to flee the state and collect unemployment in Colorado – payments he did not receive for over a year
Eventually, after weeks of being approached and harassed by multiple mysterious figures, Mac Isaac was forced to close down the shop and flee the state in November 2020.
He subsequently spent nearly a year holed up in Colorado with his family, during which time he lost his decade-old business.
In December 2020, Mac Issac applied for unemployment, and said he was met with pushback from government officials that left him unable to get his entitled benefits.
