A Delaware computer store owner has recalled the moment when Hunter Biden drunkenly stumbled into his shop seeking repair of three broken MacBooks.
John Paul Mac Isaac, owner of The Mac Shop, said Biden, wreaking of alcohol, came into the now-shuttered Wilmington store just before closing on a Friday in April 2019.
Biden wanted Isaac to recover data off of three MacBook laptops that had suffered liquid damage, the computer store owner recalled in his upcoming book American Injustice: My Battle to Expose the Truth. He previewed the book in an op-ed published by The New York Post on Friday.
During the repair, Isaac claims he saw evidence of Biden’s sexual tendencies – from his vulgar computer password to lewd pictures – and potential tax fraud.
‘My password is f**ked up. Don’t be offended!’ Biden allegedly told Isaac before announcing his account was protected with the phrase: ‘analf**k69’.
He also allegedly found photos of Biden sporting a jock strap, sexual images with various women and a ‘shady’ document from 2017 titled ‘income.pdf’ that detailed his salary.
‘At the top were the years 2013, 2014, and 2015. Next to each year was the amount of taxable income earned: $833,000+ in 2013, $847,000+ amended to $1,247,000+ in 2014, $2,478,000+ in 2015,’ Isaac penned in his book. ‘I was blown away. All that money and this a**hole couldn’t spring for a backup drive!’

Biden came stumbling into the shop ten minutes before closing, Isaac recalled, noting he had ‘no intention of working late’ that day.
‘I leaned back in my chair and closed my eyes. My vision of leaving the shop quickly faded as the door chime sounded. As was usual for this time of day, I thought: ‘What kind of person expects quality service right before closing time?” he wrote.
The attorney turned artist stumbled into the shop carrying three laptops. Isaac said he fumbled as he tried to sit at the repair bar counter.
‘I’m glad you’re still open,’ Biden allegedly said. ‘I just came from the cigar bar, and they told me about your shop, but I had to hurry because you close at seven.’
Isaac, seemingly frustrated by another customer who ‘thinks the world revolves around them,’ responded: ‘You made it just in time.’

‘I need the data recovered off these, but they all have liquid damage and won’t turn on,’ Biden said.
‘Well, let’s get you checked in and see what’s going on,’ Isaac answered, noticing how one computer was sporting a Beau Biden Foundation sticker.
The repair tech, unaware of who he was speaking with, then asked Biden for this first name.
‘Hunter,’ he said, prompting the request for his surname.
Isaac claims Biden ‘looked at me funny, as if I were from another country and how dare I not know who he was?’
‘Ah, Biden,’ he responded.
As he inputted Biden’s contact information into the system, Isaac said he remembered that the attorney had lost his brother a few years prior.
‘I felt a little bad for him,’ he recalled. ‘Maybe the Mac with the sticker belonged to his now-deceased brother, and it would bring closure to have access to those memories trapped inside.’
Isaac said that on ‘any other night’ he would’ve collected the computers and started working on them the next day, but due to his ‘misplaced compassion’ decided to start his troubleshooting that evening.
‘One at a time, I performed a quick inspection of the machines,’ he explained, revealing that one device had such extensive liquid damage that it was a ‘complete write-off.’
Another device, the one protected with Biden’s crude password, was able to boot up but had an unresponsive keyboard.
Isaac claims he pulled out an external keyboard and asked for Biden’s permission to access the device.
Biden, allegedly slurring his words, started laughing and disclosed his password.
‘My eyes widened a bit, and I told him that maybe it would be best if he tried to log in himself,’ Isaac recalled.
‘Hey, you fixed it!’ Biden responded after Isaac successfully logged on to the device.
The Mac Shop owner than asked Biden if he had his own external keyboard to use with the laptop. The president’s son reportedly starred blankly back at him.
‘Here, you can borrow this one to perform the recovery yourself,’ Isaac told Biden. ‘That way I don’t have to check it in and bill you. Just bring it back when you’re done.’
While conducting the data recovery, Isaac allegedly found photos of Biden sporting a jock strap (pictured), sexual images with various women and a ‘shady’ document from 2017 titled ‘income.pdf’ that detailed his salary

Shortly thereafter, once Biden had apparently left the shop, Isaac pulled the blinds, locked the door and began the recovery process for the third device.
‘Here’s where things started to get interesting,’ Isaac recalled, noting how he had to individually drag each file into the recovery folder.
‘It took only a few files before I noticed pornography appearing in the right column,’ he wrote. ‘This is a vocational hazard; I’d gotten rather used to and gave it no mind. I was a little amazed by the sheer quantity though, and by the boldness of leaving porn files on one’s desktop.’
He kept sorting through the files until he stumbled upon a risqué image of Biden himself.
‘Oh s**t,’ Isaac thought after seeing a picture of Biden wearing a red scarf and a jock strap. ‘I couldn’t help but chuckle.’
‘How embarrassing! Who on God’s earth would feel comfortable with this lying around on their desktop?’
The computer tech allegedly found multiple photos of Biden, with his ‘salt-and-pepper stubble,’ gazing into a camera as he attempted to ‘look cool while taking a naked selfie’.
‘How many of these does he have?’ Isaac questioned.
He claims he also found sexual pictures of Biden with various women.
‘I decided I’d had enough, that I was no longer going to preview the data. I would just go by the file name and hope for the best,’ Isaac shared. ‘And I tried to work out how to keep a straight face when he returned for the recovery data.’
In addition to pornographic material, Issac claims he found an email from January 2017 discussing Biden’s income.
The correspondence was saved as a PDF document that Biden had seemingly denoted as important.
‘I likely wouldn’t even have noticed it if it hadn’t been tagged with a purple dot,’ Isaac penned, describing how he discovered income.pdf.
‘On a Mac, you can apply tags, or color codes, to files as an organizational aid. It seemed odd that someone who clearly had zero organizational skills would bother tagging this one file purple. It was begging to be clicked open. So I did.’
The document revealed that Biden had reportedly earned taxable income ranging from $833,000 to more than $2.4 million between 2013 and 2015.
‘I read on. Amounts that I could never even have imagined earning were broken down by the year,’ Isaac stated.
‘Then I read: “Since you couldn’t have lived on $550,000 a year, you ‘borrowed’ some money from RSB in advance of payments.” I was speechless. This guy couldn’t live on more than ten times what I earned every year?’
Isaac, who described the document as ‘shady,’ said it showed that ‘a lot of money had exchanged hands, and it didn’t seem like it had been recorded lawfully.’
‘But what did I know?’ he wrote. ‘Plus, it was none of my business. It wasn’t my job to judge — just to transfer and verify.’
He kept working on the data recovery until the computer’s battery had run out, calling it quits for the night with about 100 gigabytes of data left to sort through.
Isaac planned to finish the data recovery the next day, leaving the laptop to charge overnight. It is unclear if or when he completed the requested task.
The tech expert did note, however, that Biden never returned to collect his devices.
After more than a year, he turned the computers over to the FBI.

Files from the laptop are now part of the evidence in Biden’s federal prosecution for alleged tax fraud, money laundering and illegal foreign lobbying.
Also among the files on the laptop are a raft of emails and documents showing Biden’s dealings with Burisma, a Ukrainian gas firm that became the center of President Donald Trump’s first impeachment in December 2019.
The then-president was accused of pushing Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky to announce investigations into the Bidens and Burisma for alleged corruption.

In emails from the hard drive Biden and his business partners make apparent references to now-President Joe Biden’s involvement in a multi-million-dollar deal with Chinese government-linked oil giant CEFC.
One infamous May 2017 email from Biden’s partner James Gilliar, suggested 10 percent of the equity in the deal would go to ‘the big guy’ – a phrase consistently used throughout Biden’s communications to refer to his father, Joe.
Other emails show that Biden and the now-president shared a bank account and paid each other’s bills.
Maxey and his colleagues found ‘450 gigabytes of deleted material’ on the device including 80,000 images and videos and more than 120,000 archived emails.
He told DailyMail.com last month that he intends to post them all online in a searchable database in the coming weeks.
AUTHENTICATING THE LAPTOP
DailyMail.com commissioned cyber forensics experts at Maryman & Associates to examine the hard drive to determine its authenticity.
The firm’s founder, Brad Maryman, was a 29-year veteran of the FBI, served as a Chief Information Security Officer and founded the bureau’s cyber forensics unit. His partner, Dr. Joseph Greenfield, is an associate professor at the University of Southern California and helped write their degree program in intelligence and cyber operations.
After an extensive analysis of the hard drive, Greenfield and Maryman produced a report for DailyMail.com detailing their findings.
Using the same forensic tools as federal and state law enforcement in criminal investigations, they found a total of 103,000 text messages, 154,000 emails and more than 2,000 photos.
– They found emails for multiple accounts on the laptop dating back to 2009, and other data which ‘appears to be related to Mr. Biden’ between 2016 and 2019.
– The report’s findings were consistent with the known timeline for the hard drive. A Wilmington, Delaware computer store work order with Hunter’s signature shows he left his 2017 MacBook Pro laptop there on April 12, 2019.
– The Maryman & Associates report said the original ‘Macintosh HD’ drive was created on March 28, 2018
– Hunter’s iCloud email address was added to the laptop’s system on October 21 2018, as well as his work email at his firm Rosemont Seneca on February 2 2019.
– The same day, a Gmail address he used to log onto sex cam sites, and another personal Gmail address belonging to Hunter, were also added.
– Beau Biden’s old Gmail account was added on February 7 2019.
– Emails addressed to Hunter’s various email addresses dating from December 2009 to December 2020 were found on the system.
– An iPad with the name ‘Hunter’s iPad’ and three email addresses associated with the Biden family was backed up on the laptop and on iCloud in January 2019 and again a month later.
– Greenfield found 818 call logs in this iPad backup with timestamps from June 2016 to February 2019.
– There were 8,942 entries in the iPad’s contacts book, created between April 2016 and January 2019.
– In February 2019 an iPhone XS was also synced with the laptop. Its serial number was consistent with the timestamps of the data on the phone.
In conclusion, ‘The operating system timestamps appear to be authentic, and no evidence was found to suggest that the timestamps or data were altered or manufactured,’ the report said. ‘No indications were found that would suggest the data was manufactured.’
