John Paul Mac Isaac to Newsmax TV: 'Never My Intention' to Change Election
The Hunter Biden laptop repairman tells Newsmax TV he has been unfairly branded a "hacker" and dealt "a death sentence" on his career for his whistleblowing of the laptop that Twitter and the mainstream media were determined to downplay amid Joe Biden's presidential campaign.
"Obviously, being labeled a hacker is a death sentence in my industry," John Paul Mac Isaac told Wednesday's "Greg Kelly Reports." "It's hard to get the truth out when the truth is being filtered.
"It hasn't helped my credibility if people hear only one side of the story."
In a wide-ranging interview, a contrite Mac Isaac laments the damages he has sustained, losing his business and facing "anger and hatred" for blowing the whistle on uncomfortable findings on the three laptops his Delaware computer repair business was stuck with.
"I can't look into the minds of who controls the media," Mac Isaac told guest host Rob Finnerty about the social media and mainstream media's smear campaign against him to protect Joe Biden during the presidential election.
"It was never my intention to change anything. I just wanted the truth to be out there. I wanted my story to be told, and I wanted to have some level of protection."
Instead of protection from the FBI, Mac Isaac got a cold shoulder, if not an outright rejection.
Concerned about local exposure and his personal safety, Mac Isaac enlisted his veteran father to take the laptop to the FBI in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
"They told him to get out of their office and to lawyer up," Mac Isaac said. "My father and I felt a little bit put down, and it took about a month for the FBI to reach back out to my father to get in contact with me."
Hunter Biden did not pick up the laptops, and once the laptops were delivered to the FBI, Mac Isaac was curiously told to stall any request to retrieve them.
"One of the FBI agents actually told me that if somebody ever came looking for the device that I was to stall him," Mac Isaac said. "And the agent was actually very specific onto the method of stalling him and buying them 24 hours for them to return the equipment so that I can return it to the customer, which seemed odd to me at the time.
"How they handled my interaction, when I came to them for security and protection, it wasn't what I was expecting as a response."
Mac Isaac also never expected to be in possession of potentially "criminal" material from the laptop of a son of the former vice president and a presidential candidate. Nor, did he seek to damage Biden's campaign with the disclosures.
But, when he found "items of a personal nature" – ones he was "not comfortable" discussing on air – he knew he needed to alert the authorities, he said.
"Obviously things got more of a concern when a couple of weeks later his father announced his candidacy," Mac Isaac told Finnerty. "I got pretty concerned and I felt like there might be criminal material here that needed to be put in the hands of the authorities. So that was what we did.
