The computer repairman, John Paul Mac Isaac, who leaked the hard drive of Hunter Biden’s “laptop from hell,” has gone out of business and has not been seen for several days. His personal attorney claimed that he was receiving death threats, and Isaac himself had repeatedly stated that he feared for his life.

Isaac became the subject of a major scandal that shook the world weeks before the U.S. presidential election, when he leaked the laptop, belonging to the son of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, Hunter, along with its contents that included sensitive images, videos, and other files that provided evidence of the Biden family’s shady dealings with the Ukrainian government and corrupt businesses.

According to recent reports by USA Today, there is concern that Isaac has mysteriously closed his computer repair shop in Wilmington, Delaware, after publicly stating that he feared for his life. 

According to reports, Isaac’s business has had a “closed” sign for several days and there is no movement inside. At first the only information available was from a neighbor who claimed that Isaac had left town. 

Later, his lawyer, Brian Della Rocca, contacted the media and said that his client had closed the store after receiving several death threats. For the sake of his safety, he did not give any further information about his whereabouts, nor did he claim to have any.

In October, Issac came to attention when he said he kept a copy of the contents of the hard drive because he “feared he would be killed by people who ‘work for [Joe] Biden’ and having it was ‘protection.'” 

The scandal began in mid-October, when the New York Post reported that computer repairman Isaac had received a request to repair a laptop that reportedly contained a variety of emails with material proving that former Vice President Joe Biden and a senior executive from the Ukrainian company Burisma had held a meeting in person. It also contained aberrant photographs and videos of Hunter using drugs and half-naked.

According to the laptop’s emails, Hunter Biden introduced his father, then Vice President Joe Biden, to a senior executive of a Ukrainian energy company less than a year before Biden pressured government officials in Ukraine to fire the prosecutor-general who was investigating the company.

When Isaac discovered the contents of the laptop, with his father as a go-between, he turned himself in to the FBI. Seeing that he had no answers and that the information provided did not follow a legal course, he decided to contact the law office of President Trump Giuliani’s lawyer, who was responsible for publishing the content in the media and moving forward with the legal complaints. 

Della Rocca recently noted that his firm had held discussions about the laptop case over the past few weeks with FBI agents and Delaware Attorney General Leslie Wolf. But he did not give further details.
