According to CBS:
Hunter Biden's legal team went on the offensive Wednesday, demanding state and federal investigations into the dissemination of his personal material — purported to be from his laptop — and threatening a defamation lawsuit against Fox News' Tucker Carlson for allegedly failing to correct false statements.
The flurry of letters to the Delaware attorney general, the Department of Justice, the IRS and attorneys for Fox News and Carlson represent an aggressive new strategy for the president's son, who is facing long-running federal criminal investigations, as well as new probes promised by congressional Republicans, according to a source familiar with Biden's approach.
Biden’s attorneys are calling for the Delaware Attorney General and Assistant Attorney General to investigate laptop repair shop owner John Paul Mac Isaac, ex-Trump advisors Rudy Giulini and Steve Bannon, their attorney Robert Costello, and others “for whom there is considerable reason to believe violated various Delaware laws in accessing, copying, manipulating, and/or disseminating Mr. Biden's personal computer data.” Mac Isaac says he waited 90 days (his store’s customer service policy) before considering the laptop abandoned.
This entire lawsuit itself is an admission that the laptop is authentic, yet amusingly team Hunter is still trying to spin that. One of his attorneys, Abbe Lowell, told CBS that these letters “do not confirm Mac Isaac's or others' versions of a so-called laptop,” and seemed to argue that all the damning contents on the laptop are manipulated. “They address their conduct of seeking, manipulating and disseminating what they allege to be Mr. Biden's personal data, wherever they claim to have gotten it,” Lowell added. No examples were given on anything in particular that was manipulated, and it’s unclear why it would make much of a difference if the damning laptop materials happened to have come from a device that wasn’t a laptop.
