Lawyers representing Hunter Biden have requested investigations into former President Donald Trump’s allies for ‘trafficking stolen information’ from Biden’s laptop.
The letters, which were sent to the Justice Department’s National Security Division and the Delaware attorney general’s office, request probes into individuals suspected of violating federal and Delaware laws by accessing, copying, manipulating and disseminating Biden’s personal computer data, NBC News reported.
The letters name Rudy Giuliani, who served as Trump’s lawyer at the time, and John Paul Mac Isaac, who claimed that Biden left the water-damaged laptop at his Wilmington, Delaware repair store.
The information from the laptop has been the source of media stories alleging Hunter Biden committed crimes regarding his finances and drug use.
Hunter Biden’s team has decided to take a new approach and will no longer remain silent, a source told NBC News.
“This marks a new approach by Hunter Biden and his team. He is not going to sit quietly by as questionable characters continue to violate his rights and media organizations peddling in lies try to defame him,” the unidentified person said.
The Justice Department declined to comment and the Delaware attorney general’s office did not respond to a request for comment.
