Lawyers for Hunter Biden are requesting that federal and state investigators look into those who accessed and spread his personal data from his stolen laptop, including Rudy Giuliani and a number of allies of former President Trump, in a series of letters sent Wednesday, according to multiple reports.
The letters to the attorney general of Delaware, the Department of Justice and the IRS allege that a number of right-wing figures trafficked the information that was stolen from Biden’s laptop and used it to weaponize attacks against him and his family.
It is the first time Biden’s legal team has publicly acknowledged that it was his personal data that was found on an abandoned laptop at a Delaware repair shop. The offensive against his agitators marks a new strategy in Biden’s legal maneuvers as House Republicans have teed up their investigations into the president’s son.
The letter to the Delaware attorney general accuses John Paul Mac Isaac, who owned the repair shop where the laptop was left, of accessing the computer in an unauthorized manner, which they say he distributed to the New York Post for a story before the 2020 election, according to CNN. The attorneys also asked for investigations into Giuliani and Stephen Bannon.
