    The Facts

    • John Paul Mac Isaac, the former owner of a Delaware computer repair shop who turned over a laptop belonging to Hunter Biden, has filed a defamation suit against Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) and news outlets CNN, Politico and the Daily Beast.

    • Mac Isaac reportedly came into possession of the laptop after Hunter dropped it off at his store in Apr. 2019 and never returned. He then reportedly gave it to the FBI in Dec. 2019 and later passed a copy to Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani, who then passed it to the New York Post.

    The Spin

    Left narrative

    Journalists and social media companies were right to prevent the dissemination of the Hunter Biden laptop story when it emerged in Oct. 2020 – it was journalistically unsound to promote the story without knowing where the information came from, particularly so close to the election.

    Right narrative

    Mac Isaac is a courageous patriot who did the American people a great service in making the contents of Hunter Biden's laptop known. He has suffered greatly as a result of this heroic act and it's only right he be compensated.
