In a move that finally admits ownership of Hunter Biden’s infamous laptop, Hunter’s lawyers are asking the Department of Justice (DOJ) to investigate former President Donald Trump’s allies over how they shared content of Hunter’s laptop with the New York Post and other media outlets.
According to Daily Mail, Hunter’s lawyer, Abbe Lowell, wrote a letter to the DOJ asking the department to investigate Trump’s campaign lawyer and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, Trump strategist Steve Bannon, owner of the Wilmington computer repair shop John Paul Mac Isaac and Giuliani’s attorney Robert Costello.
Lowell claimed that Hunter did not consent to share his personal information and that Giuliani was pushing discredited theories about the first son.

“This failed dirty political trick directly resulted in the exposure, exploitation, and manipulation of Mr. Biden’s private and personal information,” Lowell wrote in the letter. “Politicians and the news media have used this unlawfully accessed, copied, distributed, and manipulated data to distort the truth and cause harm to Mr. Biden.”
Ted Goodman, Giuliani’s political and communications adviser, told Daily Mail that Hunter and his lawyers are trying to cover up the case because it looked like a RICO (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations) case. Goodman added that Hunter’s camp is trying to silence Giuliani, a man who has “locked up corrupt politicians and cleaned up the streets of New York City.’”
Didn't HUNTER disseminate his data by leaving his laptop at a computer repair shop only to go unclaimed? Maybe he's going to sue himself. https://t.co/VFQcxmu377

“Raising concerns now, after so many years, indicates just how devastating the texts and videos from Hunter’s laptop truly are,” Goodman added. “The laptop reveals 30 years of corruption by the Biden crime family, headed by the boss – Joe Biden.”
Goodman added that the laptop became abandoned material under Isaac’s control when Hunter left it at his repair shop.
Bryan Sullivan, a defamation lawyer representing the first son, wrote a cease-and-desist letter to Fox News and Tucker Carlson, demanding the network and Carlson retract and correct a report that showed Hunter paid rent to his father, President Biden.
Sullivan claimed that Carlson’s promulgation of the story as evidence that President Biden was tied closely to his son’s financial dealing stands in a “flagrant violation of all journalistic professionalism.” Sullivan threatened potential litigation if Fox News does not retract the story before the end of Thursday.
