In the ever-developing Hunter Biden laptop story, computer repairman, Mac Isaac, has sued CNN, Politico, Daily Beast, and US Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) for defamation. Mac Isaac told the New York Post that the congressman and the mainstream media falsely accused him of peddling Russian misinformation during the 2020 presidential election.
The suit reportedly claims that “CNN's broadcast of the false statement accuses the Plaintiff of committing an infamous crime, i.e., treason by working with the Russians to commit a crime against the United States of America by attempting to undermine American democracy and the 2020 Presidential election.”
Mac Isaac's claims will be presented in court. In numerous instances, he was the subject of left-wing talking points. For instance, CNN's Brian Stelter falsely labeled Hunter's laptop “Russian disinformation” and suggested that the laptop's contents could be “made up.” Then, in March, Stelter was unwilling to admit to a reporter that he’d made false assertions during his talk show.
Politico published a story that suggested in part that the laptop was “Russian disinfo.” The suit alleges that the “article was written by journalist Natasha Bertrand, who seemingly has a history of transforming speculation into fact in the stories upon which she reports.”
“Purloined” is the word the Daily Beast used to describe Hunter's laptop. This implies that Mac Isaac stole Hunter's computer. Mac Isaac maintains that Hunter dropped the laptop off to him to be repaired.
“Pencil Neck” Adam Schiff, as Donald Trump dubbed the congressman, told CNN on the air that the laptop used by Hunter Biden was a “Kremlin” tactic meant to defeat then-candidate Joe Biden. “Clearly, the origins of this whole smear are from the Kremlin, and the president is only too happy to have Kremlin help and try to amplify it,” Schiff told CNN live on the air without providing any proof.
It's been 18 months since the mainstream media and Schiff sided with the Democrats’ story, which claimed that Mac Isaac peddled Russian disinformation. According to the Washington Post, Mac Isaac said, “All I want now is for the rest of the country to know that there was a collective and orchestrated effort by social and mainstream media to block a real story with real consequences for the nation… Twitter initially labeled my action hacking, so for the first day after my information was leaked, I was bombarded with hate mail and death threats revolving around the idea that I was a hacker, a thief, and a criminal,” Mac Isaac stated. “Without any intel, the head of the intel committee decided to share with CNN and its viewers a complete and utter lie… A lie issued in the protection of a preferred presidential candidate.”
