John Paul Mac Isaac, whose discovery of a laptop that by virtually all accounts belongs to Hunter Biden, the son of current president Joe Biden, is suing Twitter for defamation.
“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,” the lawsuit said, as pointed out by Just the News.
The Hunter Biden laptop became the source of both scurrilous news reports and allegations of criminal activity involving foreign influence peddling. The story at the New York Post broke at the height of campaign season, and Twitter subsequently blocked it due to a rationale that it contained “hacked” materials.
However, this was a standard that appears to have been applied selectively. And Isaac is now suing Twitter for defamation. There is a simple reason: The files were not “hacked.”
When the story broke, Twitter posted the following message on the story link: “We can’t complete this request because this link has been identified by Twitter or our partners as being potentially harmful.”
The computer files were retrieved in accordance with store policy. As Isaac claims that he called Hunter Biden repeatedly to pick up the laptop, then the property became forfeited to the store owner after 90 days.
The lawsuit states that the files were not “hacked” material. Thus, Twitter may potentially have a legal problem on its hands.
Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey admitted that it was “unacceptable” to block the url with “zero context.”
