John Paul Mac Isaac, an independent Mac repair shop owner in Wilmington, Delaware, has spoken out about reports on emails purporting to show that Hunter Biden introduced a Ukrainian businessman to his father, Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, when the elder Biden was vice president.

On Wednesday, the New York Post reported that shop owner Mac Isaac was asked to repair a laptop computer that allegedly contained a variety of nefarious and possibly incriminating emails and photos reportedly confirming a meeting between the former vice president and a top Burisma executive.

The Post report said that the email appears to confirm that Hunter brokered the meeting between his father, then vice president, and Burisma executive Vadym Pozharskyi.

Mac Isaac was unable to positively identify the computer’s owner, but said a Beau Biden Foundation sticker was on the laptop device.

The outlet also reported that personal, explicit photos of Hunter existed on the computer’s hard drive.

The report from the New York Post sparked heavy controversy after Twitter blocked users from its link.

Mac Isaac said that an unidentified customer left three laptops for water damage repair in April 2019 but never returned for them despite multiple attempts at contact. The customer or customers also reportedly did not pay the $85 bill for recovering the computer’s data.

Mac Isaac said that he was able to retrieve the data from just one of the laptops despite the damage. When he recovered the files, Mac Isaac said “it was a mess.”

“I would have been responsible for dragging and dropping the contents onto a hard drive,” he said, pointing out there was a bevy of personal information on the laptops.

According to the Daily Mail, Mac Isaac, who spoke with reporters on Wednesday, said that he feared he would be murdered after he turned over the laptop computers to FBI investigators.

During one instance, Mac Isaac said that he contacted FBI agents over the laptops, but in a second instance, he said that FBI agents came to him in 2019.

According to the Daily Mail — which describes the man as a Trump voter — Mac Isaac said he retained a copy of the laptop’s contents because he “feared he would be killed by people who ‘work for [Joe] Biden’ and having it was ‘protection.'”

As the year progressed, he said he became concerned over the media coverage of the alleged ties between the Biden family and the Ukrainian businessmen.

“Middle of summer, I started to get concerned because you see stuff in the papers and the news and online,” he said.

Following the related news stories, Mac Isaac said he reached out to a friend and asked for advice.

During an interview recorded by a Daily Beast reporter, Mac Isaac said, “I was afraid, I reached out to some people that I trusted that could possibly get me in touch with the FBI. Then they showed up.”

The outlet reported that two FBI agents with a subpoena showed up at his shop in December and took the laptop.

Several weeks later, Mac Isaac said he heard from the agents.

“One of the agents called me up three weeks later,” he said, and revealed that the agent warned him against speaking to anyone who came asking about the laptop or its contents — specifically “anybody representing Hunter.”

The outlet noted, “Mac Isaac said he had acted to pass on the laptop to [Rudy] Giuliani because he feared being killed because of what was in his possession saying: ‘I’m pretty vocal about not wanting to get murdered.'”

He also insisted that he believed those who work for Joe Biden could possibly place his life in danger, and suggested that he didn’t want to be shot while “jogging in the morning.”

“I think that it’s not the government as an entire entity, but I think there’s a history in this country of people with political motives doing horrible things,” he admitted. “I don’t want to be on the receiving end of that.”

On Wednesday, the Post reported that it was President Donald Trump’s personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, who turned over the information to the outlet.

Giuliani reportedly obtained the information from his own personal lawyer, Robert Costello. According to reports, Costello obtained the laptop’s contents from Mac Isaac himself.

It is unclear at the time of this reporting how Mac Isaac got in touch with Costello, or vice versa.

As highlighted by the Daily Beast, “Mac Isaac refused to answer specific questions about whether he had been in contact with Rudy Giuliani before the laptop drop-off or at any other time before the Post article’s publication. Pressed on his relationship with Giuliani, he replied: ‘When you’re afraid and you don’t know anything about the depth of the waters that you’re in, you want to find a lifeguard.’

“Seeming to realize he’d said too much,” the outlet reported, “[H]e added: ‘Ah, s**t.'”

The outlet concluded, “So Rudy was your lifeguard? the reporters asked. ‘No comment,’ he replied.”

According to Fox News, at least one of the laptops reportedly contained “disturbing” items.

On Wednesday, Mac Isaac told the outlet, “I just don’t know what to say, or what I’m allowed to say. I know that I saw, I saw stuff — and I was concerned. I was concerned that somebody might want to come looking for this stuff eventually — and I wanted it out of my shop.”

Fox News reported that a spokesperson for the FBI declined to comment on the matter, “citing the bureau’s practice of neither confirming nor denying the existence of an investigation.”

“Representatives for Delaware’s U.S. Attorney’s office did not immediately respond to multiple requests for comment,” the outlet reported. “When contacted by the New York Post, a spokesperson for the Delaware U.S. Attorney’s office said, ‘My office can neither confirm nor deny the existence of an investigation.'”

The Biden campaign has previously denied all related allegations, and has continually insisted that no such meeting was found in the former vice president’s schedules from 2015.

Why wasn't NONE of this damning information utilized by the #POUTINGpotus during his impeachment? They had the information according to the story even BEFORE the #CRIMINALinCHIEF was impeached. Look how they were able to keep his other buddies under wraps...LOL You #DATS are hilarious.

Mr. Mac Isaac says he kept a copy to discourage anyone from murdering him. So perhaps he still has a copy, for the same reason. He could provide more copies, as evidence against Biden's implication that Giuliani and co-conspirators forged the documents themselves (although that wouldn't disprove that Giuliani gave Mac Isaac a copy).

So these guys are interrogating this Hero who is in danger and they will give this interview to democrats to use. I wish he would HANG UP on these posers.

Why would Biden have the meetings in his schedule? He's dumb, but not stupid. Those pictures and emails look legit. Still waiting for the "experts" to disavow them. The reason that I believe this is true is because the msm will not cover one single bit of it and social media is doing everything that they can to suppress it.

Nikki Haley Breaks with Trump: ‘We Shouldn’t Have Followed Him, and We Shouldn’t Have Listened to Him’

Published

on

Nikki Haley, former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, believes that former President Donald Trump “let us down.”

Haley’s remarks come as the former president’s legal team prepares to present its defense of Trump during his second impeachment trial in the Senate.

In a Politico interview published Friday, Haley, former South Carolina governor, said that “we shouldn’t have followed” Trump.

“We need to acknowledge he let us down,” she said in an extensive profile. “He went down a path he shouldn’t have, and we shouldn’t have followed him, and we shouldn’t have listened to him. And we can’t let that ever happen again.”

She also told the outlet that she has not spoken to Trump since the Jan. 6 riots at the U.S. Capitol, and takes issue with his remarks condemning former Vice President Mike Pence’s refusal to reject the Electoral College vote.

“When I tell you I’m angry, it’s an understatement,” she expressed. “I am so disappointed in the fact that [despite] the loyalty and friendship he had with Mike Pence, that he would do that to him. Like, I’m disgusted by it.”

The former ambassador, who many people are speculating may run for the White House in 2024, also added that Trump will never accept the results of the 2020 presidential election.

“There’s nothing that you’re ever going to do that’s going to make him feel like he legitimately lost the election,” she explained. “He’s got a big bully pulpit. He should be responsible with it.”

Haley also warned that many people still love the former president and will not stop supporting him just because he is out of office.

“I know how much people love Donald Trump,” she admitted. “I know it. I feel it. Whether it’s an RNC room or social media or talking to donors, I can tell you that the love they have for him is still very strong. That’s not going to just fall to the wayside. Nor do I think the Republican Party is going to go back to the way it was before Donald Trump. I don’t think it should.”

Haley added that people, instead, should “take the good that he built, leave the bad that he did, and get back to a place where we can be a good, valuable, effective party.”

“[I]t’s bigger than the party,” she insisted. “I hope our country can come together and figure out how we pull this back.”

Referring to Haley’s possible 2024 ambitions, Politico’s Tim Alberta wrote, “Since last fall, I’ve spent nearly six hours talking with Haley on-the-record. I’ve also spoken with nearly 70 people who know her: friends, associates, donors, staffers, former colleagues. From those conversations, two things are clear. First, Nikki Haley is going to run for president in 2024. Second, she doesn’t know which Nikki Haley will be on the ballot.”

Haley also said that she didn’t believe Trump had a chance of winning in a 2024 election scenario.

“I don’t think he can,” she admitted. “He’s fallen so far.”

“I think his business is suffering at this point,” she added. “I think he’s lost any sort of political viability he was going to have. I think he’s lost his social media, which meant the world to him. I mean, I think he’s lost the things that really could have kept him moving.”

WATCH: Trump Attorneys Destroy House Managers on Lying to American Public and Using Manipulated Tweet as Evidence

Published

on

President Trump’s defense team took the floor of the US Senate on Friday in defense of President Trump in the Senate impeachment trial.

Trump Attorney David Schoen absolutely destroyed the House Managers when he took to the floor of the US Senate.

At one point Schoen played video of the Democrat lawmakers lying about a Trump tweet.

House Impeachment Manager Eric Swalwell gave a riveting performance on Wednesday reading off Trump’s tweets with emotional appeal.

During this theatrical performance, Swalwell read off a Trump retweet by Jennifer Lynn Lawrence.

But there was one problem with the tweet. It was photoshopped.

Jennifer Lynn Lawrence has never been verified by Twitter. Democrats faked that to make it look more important.

On Friday Trump Attorney David Schoen destroyed Democrats for lying about this to the American public.

White House Suspends Deputy Press Secretary For Allegedly Sexually Harassing, Threatening Reporter

Published

on

The White House announced on Friday that it was suspending Deputy Press Secretary TJ Ducklo after a report surfaced alleging that he sexually harassed and threatened a female reporter who was getting ready to publish a report revealing that he was dating a reporter who had previously been tasked with covering Democrat Joe Biden.

“The confrontation began on Inauguration Day, January 20, after [Politico reporter Tara] Palmeri, a coauthor of Politico’s Playbook, contacted [Axios political reporter Alexi] McCammond for comment while one of her male colleagues left a message for Ducklo,” Vanity Fair reported. “Ducklo subsequently called a Playbook editor to object to the story, but was told to call the Playbook reporters with his concerns. But instead of calling the male reporter who initially contacted him, Ducklo tried to intimidate Palmeri by phone in an effort to kill the story. ‘I will destroy you,’ Ducklo told her, according to the sources, adding that he would ruin her reputation if she published it.”

“During the off-the-record call, Ducklo made derogatory and misogynistic comments, accusing Palmeri of only reporting on his relationship—which, due to the ethics questions that factor into the relationship between a journalist and White House official, falls under the purview of her reporting beat—because she was ‘jealous’ that an unidentified man in the past had ‘wanted to f***’ McCammond ‘and not you,’” the report added. “Ducklo also accused Palmeri of being ‘jealous’ of his relationship with McCammond.”

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said following the report that Ducklo has been suspended for a week over the incident.

“TJ Ducklo has apologized to the reporter, with whom he had a heated conversation about his personal life,” Psaki wrote on Twitter. “He is the first to acknowledge this is not the standard of behavior set out by the President.”

“In addition to his initial apology, he has sent the reporter a personal note expressing his profound regret,” she continued. “With the approval of the White House Chief of Staff, he has been placed on a one-week suspension without pay. In addition, when he returns, he will no longer be assigned to work with any reporters at Politico.”

Reporters called out the administration over the incident, highlighting how the Trump administration did not treat reporters that way as well as issues with the timeline of events with regard to the White House taking action to address the incident.

“The Vanity Fair piece indicates that Politico editors reached to the WH after the incident first occurred and the WH acknowledged it was inappropriate,” Spectator editor Amber Athey wrote on Twitter. “But they clearly didn’t have any interest in disciplining Ducklo until his behavior was made public.”

New York Magazine reporter Olivia Nuzzi wrote on Twitter: “I covered Donald Trump for 6 years. It is saying something that this behavior — from a Biden official — shocks me.”

Grabien founder Tom Elliott highlighted the following remarks that Biden made a few weeks ago: “If you’re ever working with me and I hear you treat another colleague with disrespect, talk down to someone, I promise you I will fire you on the spot, on the spot. No if, ands, or buts. Everybody — everybody is entitled to be treated with decency & dignity.”

CNN anchor Jake Tapper responded to the quote, writing: “Standards that are not upheld are not standards. They’re lies.”
