We’ve been hearing a lot from whistleblowers about the politicization of the FBI lately including padding the statistics as to domestic extremism, terming patriotic American symbols as “extremist,” and issues in the Hunter Biden case. Then there was the raid on President Donald Trump, the seizing of the cellphone of a sitting member of Congress, and reportedly dropping subpoenas on Republican lawmakers in Pennsylvania.
Now, John Paul Mac Isaac, the computer repair shop owner who gave Hunter Biden’s laptop to the FBI, is speaking out against what he views as bias including how initially the FBI wasn’t interested in the laptop and how he wasn’t protected with anonymity as a whistleblower.
Isaac also revealed another concerning piece of information.
Isaac describes in his book “American Injustice: My Battle to Expose the Truth” how two FBI agents came to his shop in Wilmington, Delaware, in December 2019 to pick up the laptop. But he says one of them made a troubling remark to him at the end of their exchange.
The repairman, who had volunteered to hand the laptop over to the feds two months earlier, said the alleged threat came after he made a joke, telling them: “Hey, lads, I’ll remember to change your names when I write the book.”
“Agent Wilson kept walking but Agent DeMeo paused and turned to face me,” Paul Mac writes of the encounter.
Isaac said the agent then told him: “It is our experience that nothing ever happens to people that don’t talk about these things.”
Isaac says that the agents told him that most people do not speak about their interactions with them.
The owner said he locked the door after the agents walked out, leaving him to “digest the encounter.”
“Was I being paranoid, or had what the agent just told me been a direct threat, or at best a thinly veiled one?” he writes.
Given all that we have seen since then, I’m thinking he wasn’t being paranoid. Fortunately, he had the presence of mind to make a copy so we could know the truth. But add yet another item into the box of all the things that need to be investigated and dealt with in regard not just to Hunter Biden, but the politicization of the FBI. It’s because of Isaac we know about all the foreign connections of Hunter Biden as well as the meetings that Joe Biden himself had with Hunter’s business associates in what appears to be an influence-peddling operation.
Isaac had to shut down his business after he was harassed and threatened by people after the information came out about the laptop. He had to go into hiding. He’s suffered a significant amount because he did the right thing in turning over the information. It’s not clear what the status of the case has been, although there were recent reports that it had reached a “critical stage.” As far as we know, there has been no raid on Hunter Biden’s home.
Not only has Isaac written a book detailing all that has occurred, but he has also filed a multimillion-dollar lawsuit against Rep. Adam Schiff, CNN, Politico, and the Daily Beast, alleging that they falsely accused him of peddling Russian disinformation. So he may yet get some justice in this matter for how he was treated.
