A team is preparing to defend Hunter Biden against an expected onslaught of investigations by House Republicans.

Allies of the president’s son gathered for a private strategy session last September in California where they discussed going after Hunter’s accusers and critics with defamation lawsuits, according the Washington Post.

Hunter’s attorney and friend Kevin Morris suggested at the meeting the suits be filed against Fox News, Eric Trump and Rudy Giuliani, along with a probe into the repairman who handed over his laptop.

Claimants sue for defamation if they believe someone has damaged their reputation, with it unclear what Hunter has taken issue with in coverage of his shady past.

Morris told the group he was crucial for Hunter’s camp to be more aggressive and also ‘outlined extensive research on two potential witnesses against Hunter Biden – spurned business partner Tony Bobulinsky and computer repairman John Paul Mac Isaac, who turned over his laptop to the FBI.

It comes amid an ongoing investigation into Hunter’s finances and allegations of illegal business dealing in China and Ukraine that remain in the public eye as Twitter answers why it suppressed the story about his laptop leak.

Hunter Biden wasn’t at the meeting, but called into the discussion via video.

David Brock, a well-known liberal activist and Clinton family defender, who attended the meeting, was planning for a new group, Facts First USA, which focused on fighting the looming House GOP investigations, The Post reported. 

‘They feel that there is a whole counter-narrative missing because of the whole Hunter-hater narrative out there,’ Brock said.  

‘What we really got into was more the meat of it, the meat of what a response would look like.’ 

The Washington Post reported that there were two competing approaches laid out at the strategy session. 

The first is to be more aggressive, which includes going after Hunter Biden’s critics, including Eric and Rudy.

The plan also involves a ‘team of researchers’ working with attorneys Joshua A Levy, who will run interference with House probes, and Chris Clark, who is dealing with the federal investigations.

The other approach is to have Hunter Biden keep his head down, which is reportedly the approach the White House prefers as it tries to argue he is a private citizen – meaning an ‘inappropriate target’ for Republicans.

But the more Hunter is in the public eye, the more the GOP will argue they have justification for coming after him, the Post reported. 

‘Some involved in these efforts argue that Hunter Biden and Morris should stay out of the limelight so Democrats can focus on painting the Republican investigations as a partisan political exercise,’ the Washington Post article states. 

‘No one thinks this strategy of putting Hunter Biden front and center is smart,’ said one Democrat involved in the broader effort. … ‘No one, including the White House.’

John Paul Mac Isaac, the ex-computer shop owner who alerted feds of incriminating content on Hunter’s laptop in 2020, said earlier this month he’s ‘not surprised’ that the New York Times and other ‘liberal’ media has yet to cover recent revelations aired by Elon Musk in his so-called ‘Twitter files.’

He spoke to DailyMail.com two days after Musk shared a trove of emails published by journalist Matt Taibbi on whether Twitter execs attempted to suppress reporting on the story in the run up to the 2020 election – all at the behest of the Biden campaign.

The barrage of tweets, titled the ‘Twitter Files’, saw the site’s new CEO accuse his predecessors of engaging in collusion with Biden’s team – publishing internal emails from the company that supported those claims.

At the time, The Times refused to report on the scandal, calling the claims ‘unsubstantiated’ – a stance it has since maintained even after’s Musk’s massive evidence dump.

Now, Mac Isaac, the owner of the since-shuttered Delaware Mac Shop where an ‘inebriated’ Hunter brought the laptop in 2019, says the paper’s decision to abstain from filing a story is likely ‘its master’s bidding’ – with the master being the Biden Administration.

Speaking to DailyMail.com Sunday, 45-year-old Mac Isaac said he feels ‘vindicated’ following Musk’s expose, after he was forced to shutter his 10-year-old store after coming forward with the laptop claims in 2020.

At the time, Mac Issacs unsuccessfully sued Twitter for defamation after execs called his claims inaccurate, forcing him pay $175,000 to cover the social media giant’s legal fees.

‘I feel vindicated,’ the former store owner, who has since penned a successful book about the ordeal, said. ‘My only wish is that Elon had bought Twitter during my lawsuit.’

Of Musk’s evidence dump – which contained leaked emails that showed senior staffers at the site had been acting on orders when it censored posts on the platform in October 2020 – Mac Issac said it ‘begs the question’ of whether Biden and Twitter had been in cahoots in the weeks prior to the presidential election.

In one of these emails, sent just ten days after The New York Post first broke the laptop story, Twitter staffers were asked to ‘review’ five tweets deemed problematic by ‘the Biden team.’

‘More to review from the Biden team,’ that staffer’s redacted correspondence read – garnering a reply hours later from another Twitter employee – one that assured the worker the task had been ‘handled.’

That same day, another email reveals that there was an additional complaint from the DNC and two more tweets were deleted.

The emails seem to substantiate claims made by Mac Issac suggesting he may have been the victim of a politically motivated attack by the federal government, as well as a sprawling censorship effort, all culminating with his financially taxing courtroom loss.

On Friday night, journalist Matt Taibbi live tweeted (above) the proof of what many people have long suspected.

Several of the deleted tweets contained images of Hunter Biden naked and smoking crack, Washington Free Beacon investigative reporter Andrew Kerr said after Musk’s evidence dump, with the journalist revealing he had discovered the contents of the long-deleted posts because they had been archived.

Three of the tweets the Biden camp demanded be deleted, the journalist said, contained ‘Hunter Biden porn’ and photos of Biden’s genitalia, from the laptop.

One of the tweets requested to be deleted by the DNC was about Hunter smoking crack and a committing a sex act. A second tweet was a link to Hunter Biden weighing and using drugs, and another link to a Hunter Biden sex tape

'More to review from the Biden team,' one staffer wrote on October 24, days ahead of the presidential election, listing five tweets. 'Handled,' another replied hours later. Three of the tweets the Biden camp demanded be deleted contained 'Hunter Biden porn' and photos of Biden's genitalia, from the abandoned laptop, it has been claimed

Another, according to Kerr, requested to be deleted by the DNC was from outspoken Trump supporter James Woods and depicted the presidents smoking crack and a committing a sex act.

A separate tweet, the journalist said, contained a link to media showing Hunter Biden weighing and using drugs, whereas another linked to a Hunter Biden sex tape.

All of the emails were sent within 24 hours of each other, time stamps showed, on October 24 and October 25 of 2020.

In one notable exchange a Twitter executive emailed a list of five of the aforementioned seven tweets to be deleted with the instruction, ‘More to review from the Biden team,’; to which another executive responded: ‘Handled these’.

Another, which contained the James Woods tweet and another Kerr said was retrieved from the wardrive of Hunter’s laptop, was described amongst high ranking staffers at the San Francisco company as being from the ‘DNC’ – apparently referencing the Democratic National Convention.

As previously mentioned, all the tweets linked in the emails have since been scrubbed.

The New York Post broke the story of the contents of the laptop ten days earlier, shortly before allegations of supposed suppression started to surface.

Files found in Biden’s personal computer included emails showing shady business dealings by the current US president’s son with foreign officials, and texts that showed him repeatedly using the ‘N-word’ and accidentally overpaying a prostitute $25,000 from an account linked to his dad.

It also uncovered a 2015 effort by Biden to set up a meeting between Vadym Pozharskyi, an adviser at a Ukrainian energy firm, and then-vice President Joe Biden, and other instances of Biden looking to cash in on his family connections.

After the Post broke the story of the laptop’s contents, Mac said the in-person threats got so bad, that he had to enlist local police to provide him with round-the-clock protection.

‘There were multiple situations where people came in and you could tell they were not there to have a computer fixed,’ Mac Isaac said.

‘If there were not other people in the shop, I don’t know what would have happened,’ he told The Post at the time. ‘I was having vegetables, eggs, dog s–t thrown at the shop every morning.

‘I had to have a Wilmington trooper parked in front of my shop all the time.’

Eventually, after weeks of being approached and harassed by multiple mysterious figures, Mac Isaac was forced to close down the shop and flee the state in November 2020.

He subsequently spent nearly a year holed up in Colorado with his family, during which time he lost his decade-old business.

In December 2020, Mac Issac applied for unemployment, and said he was met with pushback from government officials that left him unable to get his entitled benefits.

‘I would open up a case, wouldn’t hear anything, then open another case, then open another case – and then I was told to stop opening up cases,’ Mac Isaac said.

‘And they would keep closing these cases.’

As bills piled up, Mac Isaac, unable to obtain his benefits, was forced to dip into his 401K.

A year later, after still not receiving any cash, the computer whiz sent a strongly worded letter to Delaware State Senator Chris Coons, asking the politician if the state’s refusal to pay him out was the result of a politically motivated attack, possibly from the federal level.

‘I would hate to think that I was singled out in a politically motivated attack. If a state agency was weaponized to punish a perceived political enemy, the country has a right to know,’ he told Democrat Coons.

Mac Isaac said he received his backlogged benefits soon after, but told The Post that the sum he received still ended up short several thousand dollars.

Three months prior, in September 2021, Mac Isaac also received what he perceived as threats from the IRS, demanding a supposedly overdue $57 from a 2016 tax return.

‘I got an invoice on September 6, 2021, for a tax return in 2016. I took it to an accountant friend of mine who said they don’t go back that far unless they’re looking for something,’ Mac Isaac said. He told the Post that he sent the agency the $57 almost immediately.

‘We have all seen how weaponized the IRS has become over the last decade, so I wasn’t about to pick a fight,’ he said.

Speaking to The Post, Mac Isaac refused to accuse the Biden family directly, a stance that he has since abandoned after Musk’s bombshell unveiling.

The situation worsened for Mac Isaac when he unsuccessfully sued Twitter in December 2020 for defamation.

The suit filed demanded Twitter execs fork of half a billion dollars for falsely deeming the reports to be inaccurate – thus harming the whistleblower’s reputation, and was ultimately dismissed by a Florida judge with prejudice six months later, something the former computer fixer says likely would not have happened if the Twitter Files has been unveiled at that point.

As part of the court’s ruling, Mac Isaac was ordered to pay the Twitter’s legal bills for the proceedings, which amounted to an astronomical $175,000.
